Just checking. Have you done your yearly cleaning like we see at http://www.informationweek.com/news/hardware/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=60300177
If not, can I ask why you don't do the yearly?
I have an acer aspire 3000, I had formated the drive to isntall xp pro, it had xp home, after the installation the laptop freezes, some times when it boots up the muose pad does not work, or the keybord does not type anything etc. I read in a forum that it could be a defective hard drive, I went and bought a new one, installed xp pro, and the same thing is happening.
What could this be?
any help would be greatly appreciated.
