No need to crash it, j

ust save your important documents on an external drive (or a USB flash), restart the computer, when it is booting click and hold ALT+F10

this will initiate a restore procedure to original factory state, remember all documents and files will be lost, so back them up externally before you do this

Acer M3100 crashed


I'd suggest there is a possible hardware error. You need to get into the bios and check the temperatures they'll be under 'system health' or similar. Also might be worth running a ram check. Download 'windiag' it's a microsoft program designed to check your ram and it is very good.

Reinstalled windows xp profesional after hd crash. Did not have the original acer aspie 5100 recovery disc to install. Now the cd dvd rom is not recognised by laptop


if you originally had Vista on then the bios is updated from the older XP bios and wont see the drive, check here for bios downloads, or put Vista back on.

If you have a full XP disc you will need to do a full format and installation, do not use somebody elses restore disc as it's not the complete windows that you will need.

The easiest way to find out is use the memory configurator at crucial.com.
The only 5100 model I could find was a laptop.
