asked on

is there a method to wake computer from crash

acer aspire 7740-5691 laptop windows 7
I did repair install and sfc scannow

when running many programs (videos) computer crashes and only displays moving mouse cursor on a black screen

sometimes I press the power button which wakes computer from sleep
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\System Settings
and I am taken back to the login screen where I can get back to windows screen

other times ctrl-alt-delete start task manager works

sometimes waiting many minutes


I do not wish to restart computer every time computer crashes

A crash means that something has gone really wrong and Windows cannot recover on its own.

Your computer should not be crashing so often.  I would try to correct the crashing.  As you did the repair install and sfc scannow you should look into other causes.

I would scan for malware using malwarebyte's anti malware program.

I would also do a complte scan with your anti-virus software.

If that doesn't improve things I'd back up all of my data, and do a factory restore, then install all applications again and copy the data back from your backups.

If I had a computer crash more than once a week (I don't) would do the above advice.
