Swift 1 is *still* freezing up, even after updating to VGA Driver v.25.20.100.6446

The VGA driver update did not fix the problem reported in https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/555244/swift-1-keeps-freezing-up , now closed to discussion. My laptop still freezes up when charger is plugged in.

    Have you tried a brand new Windows installation? Just starting completely all over?

    Does this problem only exist on SF113-31 or also on SF114-32?
    I just read "swift 1" all the time, but these models have different bios and driver versions.
    Drivers for SF114-32 have not been updated since 2018/03/29 afaics.

    Mine is SF113-31 and I don't know about SF114-32. This thread is a continuation of https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/555244/swift-1-keeps-freezing-up which concerned SF113-31 and was closed to discussion by Acer. The VGA driver for SF113-31 was updated just a few days ago.

    (Searching https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/support with the serial number or SNID of your machine will bring up the correct drivers for your machine.)

    No - I suggest you review the discussion I linked to. This started with a recent Windows update and Acer said that the new driver would fix the problem.

    I will try to read the previous thread if and when I have time. But honestly I think you're wasting your time.

    Here's what I would do right now:

    1. Create a Windows 10 64-bit 1809 Installation USB
    2. Install Windows from scratch and start from a clean slate
    3. Let Windows install and update drivers, install missing drivers or software as necessary
    4. Enjoy my computer

    I have the  SF114-32 with no issues at all so far. Been updating every windows update and I use my computer alot. My guess is that it's related to other models.

    A lot of times its a user error. Or simply the user not knowing any better or lacking the knowledge and information. But sometimes other models can be more problematic than others regardless of the user.

    (My SF114-32 has also been working fine.)

    SAME ISSUE: Swift 1 (SF113-31) - Win10 freezing... must hold power button down to turn off. Starting occuring November 2018

    Downloading / trying audio driver update.. will post results in this thread.

    Question for PithyProlix.. you mentioned you flashed BIOS to v1.13. I'm tempted to try the same in order to remove BIOS locked by password. Do you have any idea if upgrading my BIOS from v1.06 to v1.13 like you did will remove BIOS password?

    Sorry, I don't recall that there was a password for my BIOS.
