PROBLEM WITH ACRE ASPIRE 5100.... DOES NOT BOOT

Hi....I have had an Acer Aspire 5100 for just over one year. Worked fine all the time, but this morning I turned it on and it booted to windows Vista then froze. I rebooted but the screen stayed blank. The fan started to spin but stop everytime I try to boot. What could be the problem ?

Try to boot into safe mode, to do this restart the pc and as it boots hit F8 repeatedly, this will bring a sub menu up and choose safe mode, when in safe mode perform a system restore and take it back a week or so

sounds like a loose hard drive connection, or you need a BIOS update. You should check Acer's website for an updated BIOS. You should also remove the hard drive (usually a 2 minute job with a small screw driver) and re-seat the drive.

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
