Question about PC Laptops
While surfing web screen just goes blank for no apparent reason
I had this problem. Laptop has been running for 24 hours and not a problem :-)
>Once on the website, select the Aspire 5535
>Then use the drop down and select "Bios Update for Vista" and select v1.04
>Once download is complete, extract to a temporary folder (eg create a folder in program files and extract there).
>Once this is down, go to the folder and open:
Ensure all other applications are closed.
>then run the CP2A_104 application.
Let this complete, the system then should reboot.
Once your back on, you should be good to go. This is a reminder, this may not work on all systems but it did on mine. You do this at your own risk and I accept no responsibility for any problems occured. If in doubt, refer to the Acer support line.
I wish you all the best as I know how much of a pain in the arse this problem is.

The complete solution to this fault (Acer 5535 keeps crashing under vista) is to use Windows XP
instead of Vista. Set up a Dual Boot so you can CHOOSE to load XP or Vista each time you turn on
the laptop. I've put XP on my 5535 and it's SO much faster and seems perfectly stable now - no
crashing at all.
A full video showing how to do this is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdfU9TXIAd4
Once you've done this you won't have any problems with the laptop anymore.
This is a perfect solution to the crashing problem!

Honesty ... by just upgrading Bios to v 1.04 solved this problem on my Acer 5535. Although I did my machine back to the vendor (to be on the safe side) who installed the update for me for free.
TO : Gillianp : I don't want to be nasty, but your guy at PC-World doesn't know what he's talking about... this is certainly not a one off problem... Acer recognises this and just look at the comments on this page. May I suggest you check which Bios version you have installed .... if not v1.04 then I'm pretty sure that's the answer. If you DO have v1.04 then of course it's caused by something else and I'm just one of the lucky ones who's problem is solved by this bios update. Sorry I can't help any further.

Go To The ACER Website and Download the BIOS Update.. Install it and let it reboot
Also Check to see that you're not overheating the laptop,,,, make sure fan ducts are blowing out air, whether hot or cold air make sure it's blowing out and not clogged..
if bios and a fan check don't fix it..... next thing to check is your RAM... try reseating it and switching slots on it
