the mrs just rang me complaining again about her Laptop...

is an Acer Aspire AS6530-702G25Mn 

  • Intel AMD Turion X2 Dual Core 2.0GHz RM-70 processor
  • 2GB Ram DDR2-667 (1*2GB)
  • 250GB 5400rpm SATA Hard Drive
  • DVD SuperMulti (Dual Layer)
  • New 16" True 16:9 Wide Screen (1366x768)
  • Vista Home Premium
  • ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics (256MB dedicated system memory)
  • Acer CrystalEye Webcam
  • 802.11a/g/N WiFi

  • ever since she got it, whenever you try to watch Movies in fullscreen, after 2 or 3 minutes the screen turns black then it freezes... mouse pops up again briefly, but then turns black and screen wont respond at all (neither will mouse or keyboard)

    Only way to get it right is to pull the power/manual reboot

    Seems to happen a lot more when streaming video from the net in fullscreen...

    Any ideas???

    Have turned off screen savers and power saver mode etc and optimised it for watching video but it still happens constantly
