My stupid computer always hang when I'm downloading a file, usualy for 1 hour or more. When I restart the computer the .PART file is still there but when I open Firefox the download shows "Starting...", then download some 26.5kb thing and announces that download is complete. My download file is usually 170 MB, so that is a corrupted download. Is there anyway to make use of the .PART file to revive my download?

Are you using a download manager/accelerator?? Many sites will terminate the download if you do. It's either that or the one you're using is damaged/corrupt

No, I don't use a manager. Maybe I didn't ask my question clearly...What I meant is if I a,m left with the .PART file , is there any way I can make use of it to resume my download? Any hacks or something like that?

No, you did. :thumbsup:
Download managers, as well as Firefox, use that extension until the download is complete.
If Firefox is telling the download is complete but all you're left with is the .part file, then as you stated, the download is corrupt. There is no way I know of to resume using it.

My stupid computer always hang when I'm downloading a file, usualy for 1 hour or more.

If this happens on all downloads, I'd be suspecting a virus or a program running, such as a security app, that's interferring and corrupting the download itself.
You're not on dial-up are you?

Actually no, it's an issue with my graphic card which always loosened whenever I'm in the midst of downloading a file...
