I have not been here for awhile, which indicates my notebook has been healthy until now. Xpsp3,and preferred user of IE7 with 2 gigs of RAM. Just yesterday my IE 7 started to hang after browsing awhile and I would have to try to close it with Task Manager and even that would not work all of the time and so I would be forced to Power Off. I have checked for bugs etc. and have not added any new programs. I also have an issue now with the notebook not wanting to shut down. It reboots itself after 'logoff'? I have been googling all morning and trying to figure out what to do and have tried some suggestions and have found no solution yet. I don't know if this is coincidental that I can no longer turn off my computer normally but actually have to use the power off button which I don't like to do. I look forward to experienced comments, thank you. BTW, I am not with great tech expertise. Thank you

Hey Tucker,

Might be an idea to head over to the Malware forum to see if you're infected :


If you get the all clear, post back and we'll see whether we can help.

Thx for the reply. Just got back to using the notebook...Acer TravelMate 2480 - 2153 and found that simply gently pulling the lid to close the notebook after the logoff when the black screen appears causes the notebook to reboot?
I forgot to mention that the notebook has been checked out for malware etc. XPsp3,2gigs.
Any comments?

Loose cable between the display and the laptop body or some other loose component? Can't think of anything else it could be.
