Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
My acer 5100 freezes at the vista window start-up, please help!
This same thing was happening to me. I had to start in safe mode. Click ctrl, alt, delete, then new task, typed in the path to my important files ex. c:windows/mypictureswhatever, select all the files I couldn't bear to loose, type the path to the external HD, paste to external hard drive, then do a complete format, system recovery (not restore, doing that did nothing but wasted my time). I scanned it for viruses, nothing came up. It just hiccupped on every normal start attempt. Also if I have any externals plugged into this laptop, it will not go past Windows screen. I don't know if its Acer or Vista. This process was a headache, but I had newborn photos! I wish you luck. Please ask again if you aren't successful.

Boot your Vista recovery cd, then perform a System Restore from a restore point (do not select Install at this time).
