Windows 7 on Acer Aspire One D257 constantly freezes

I recently purchased an Acer Aspire One D257 with Windows 7 Starter edition. It constantly freezes, randomly.

Sometimes after one minute after startup, sometimes up to 15 minutes later. I ran the recovery-program without any success.

Any ideas?

Yo, I had the EXACT SAME PROBLEM, super frustrating. It literally was freezing every bootup within about one to five minutes >:( The solution I found, go onto Acer's site and install their newest chipset driver. Worked like a charm. Been on the computer for 3 hours, no freezes yet! :) -fingers crossed-
