Nothing follows or no slot#2 for the other 512 Mb RAM stick. Can you try reseatting firmly the RAM sticks first then run speccy again?

The maximum temperature here is 90 C. If this temp. reading is constant without any programs running, how much more if its on heavy usage. Check the air coming out from the side vents. Do you feel any hot air coming out?

Is it on sleep mode and waking up that you were referring to?
I have noticed when I have moved the monitor or close the lid, it has frozen up.

There is an online manual in disassembling the laptop (page 43) http://tim.id.au/laptops/acer/aspire%20one.pdf
If he wants to try to see if the webcam is the problem he can do what I do and put a piece of paper over the lens and cover it with a piece of black electrical tape. That way it would not be sensing any movement.

I put tape covering the webcam. Thanks for the manual but I do not feel comfortable taking the computer apart. My guess is that the connection to the webcam is loose. I guess when I move the computer sometimes, it causes the computer to freeze up. Is that what you think?

The possiblity of checking the hardware problem is opening up and checking or reseatting the loose memory stick, hard drive or some other connections. I would not think that running it in safemode would help as its more of a hardware problem obviously. Anyway, the high CPU reading is also taking a notice that means it needs to be taken to a repair shop.

Why do you think the CPU reading is high? I am hesistant to take it to the repair shop because I do not think the cost to fix it is worth it since it is 4 years old at this point. What do you think?
