My laptop will have stretches of time where it functions perfectly well and there is no issue.


BUT, every once in a while it will freeze or even blue screen only because I jolt it move it or sometimes even lightly bump it. I think it must be some kind of hardware issue where something gets jostled. I have an acer aspire 5750z.


I had this problem when I was running Windows 7 and after when I installed Windows 10.


The power charger plugs in on the leftupper part of the keyboard and sometimes it will freeze even when I unplug or plug that in. 


In detail, I will jostle it or something like that and then the internet will go down. It will stop and I'll check the connection and it will show me that the wifi network function is disabled. Then it will freeze completely and I will have to turn it off. Or lately it has been blue screening.


I have unistalled and reinstalled all the drivers multiple times and run diagnostics, but everything looks fine technically until the actual problem happens. 


When it's acting up it is impossible to get any work done because it will take about 5 mins after startup to freeze every single time I turn it on. 


Is this anything I can easily fix without a ton of expertise? I'm just very poor and cant afford another laptop right now.

Hi. . .


I just helped another OP who moved his system to his new residence. He said he was very careful; didn't drop or bump the system, yet the end result was a bad RAM stick. The system worked just fine before the move.


Run memtest86+ - run 1 stick at a time; alternate the slots - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/hardware-tutorials/3909-test-ram-memtest86.html


Regards. . .
