Hi, i've got an Acer Aspire 5920 and i currently have Windows Vista on it, but i'm i've been having some trouble lately. I couple of nights ago i tried installing a game (Warhammer online) and once finished it had to download a patch which was a couple of GB's in size, i got to about 90% and was too tired to wait for the last 20 minutes so i shut down my computer for the night. The next morning i was having some trouble, i turned on my laptop and it was doing the update thing what sometimes happens just after the loading bar finished, and it was stuck on '1/3' for about 15 minutes, so i turned off my laptop and opened it in safe mode. After it succesfully working i shut down and restarted in the normal mode, but then i started having problems.
I got to my main screen, got all the usual pop-ups, MSN messenger and whatnot, and i tried to finish patching my game, and after doing only about 20mb it stopped, and i tried opening firefox, nothing happened, my mouse turned into the little blue circle like it does when its loading, and i couldn't even bring my start menu up so i had to shut down (holding the off button for 5 seconds) i tried again, it did a little bit more of the patch and the same thing happened. When it finally finished after a couple more tried i thought it might be fixed but no, i only get about 2-3 minutes on the internet before it jams, nothing will open or close and my mouse turns into the blue circle, then the screen glazes over like it does in the seconds between a programme not responding and the 'close now' icon. But it doesn't 'unglaze' (if that's a word) and i had to turn it off again by holding the off button.
Now when i turn on my laptop it loads up, as normal, pop-ups but as soon as i try to click firefox it jams, and a minute or so later, it glazes over. I'm out of ideas and writing this on my desktop computer, what can i do?
