    acer iconia a500

    A500 crashes frequently

    I'm a light user but the past few days my A500 freezes/crashes easily, say, when browsing internet. wondering if anyone has similar issues. and possible cause (memory related)?

    not just browser, i have seen freezes/crashes in many apps, including market. a crash could be the app exits for no reason or the tab reboots itself for no reason.

    i've tried virus scan - seems clean.

    also, android assist only reports 727mb memry. does a500 only comes with 727mb - though it's claimed to be 1gb?

    Apparently, the system uses a lot of memory......As for the crashes.....yours seem strange to me....my crashes stopped after I got the browsers straight. Your hardware might have a problems....few here report frequent crashes on the a500.

    Mine does the same. The browser seems especially flakey but I've had most apps crash on me. I've put it down to Honeycomb teething problems. I'm going to wait until the 3.1 update before I start to worry.

    Are all you crashes just "app crashes" or "the device auto-reboots"?

    I reset my device to factory default - and wiped out all my apps and data - to see if the crash/auto-reboot could be cured. Unfortunately, the device still crashes followed by auto-reboots (sometimes one reboot is not enough for the device to auto-recover). I start to believe there may be some hardware issues.

    Is there an app to diagnose hardware issues? Does anybody have any info/hint?

    Thanks,
    Gord

    Mine are mainly app crashes by either freezing or closing. I've had an occasional auto reboot but not often.

    Mine crashes frequently, always after left idling while, i.e. left on during night with charging, but this also uccurs when browsing during normal use. Very disturbing. I have reset the pad to factory standard, but it made no different. My reflection is also that this has increased after last system update.
    Does anyone have any idea?

    I'm having the same issue since the last update, frequent browser crashes and after a couple of days the tablet won't wake up. I have to hold down the power button to get it to power off and then power it back on. I can tell it's locked up because I stop getting email notification sounds.
