Sounds like it could be a few things.

1. could be the hard drive is failing
2. You could have a virus that is consuming all the CPU power and is causing lock up.
3. Over heating and its locking up.
4. Damaged windows files and it cant complete the start. if its this, try the following

Do you have your original CD that came with it, or at least a windows XP CD?

You will need one.

What you do is,

1st: Bot from CD. Start the machine with the Winxp CD in the drive, hit F12 for boot options, or whatever key function it is. Do this as soon as you turn it on,

2: select " Boot from CD" and press any key when it askes if you want to boot from CD.

3: It will load like your doing a fresh install of windows. Thats alright, its normal and no it wont re-install windows at this point.

4: Once it loads, it will have some options. Pres " R" for repair.

It will go out and to the command prompt after about 5 seconds.

5: once at the command prompt, type in exactly ( CHKDSK C: /P ) Dont include the ( ) . Then press "Enter key "

6: after it runs the disk check, normally about 3 to 5 minutes, It will finishand go back to C:/


Just type ( EXIT ), Enter key, and let it reboot.

you can remove the disk now or later, shouldnt matter, It will go to the options screen like before, but just let it default to the normal startup, or hit enter.

Windows should now load fine and you shouldnt get that message at startup anymore.


WHY THIS HAPPENED?, you may be asking.

For some reason, certain Dell Hardware and software conflict, usually when you have installed some new program, or for just no reason.

Your Boot Up files get corrupt or cleared and windows needs those to start.

What you did was re-installed those windows files.


Now copy and paste into a word document and print it out in case it happens again. Not likley but it could.

This works with any computer experienceing this issue, usually, unless there is something worse going on.

You can help other now that you know how and become a hero, make sure to charge them $10 though for your time:)


Let me know if this doesnt work and we can try something else.

Good Luck.

This could be a few things..
1. Possibly Overheating due to clogged fan/heatsink fins
2. Faulty Video Chip.. Most Likely Due to OverHeating or Board Warp..
3. Bad Battery.. Very Common with the Acer 5000 and 3000 models.... If you have a bad battery, the laptop will do both, run extremely slow, lack of mouse and touchpad movement, and non-booting/Freezing issues...

Brand new notebook .. windows then, screen freeze..acer picture


This may require a "repair" of windows.

Get a Windows XP Operating system disk with the correct service pack that the notebook has installed (usually XP SP2).

1. Boot from it (put it in CD drive and restart the laptop).

2. If you still get the same problem start up, you need to set the laptop to boot from CD.

3. Restart laptop, press Delete key or F2, or F12 (it should say one of these on the screen) to enter the Setup. or another key to get "boot options"

4. In Setup (BIOS) Use Right Arrow to find the Boot Options. Use the instructions to move the CD-ROM to first position, above HDD (hard drive). Press Esc, then F10 to save your changes and exit.

5. The XP CD Rom should now run. It should come to a screen where you are asked to press R to repair windows.

6. When it comes to the command prompt, restart the laptop

Hopefully the laptop should boot OK again.

My Acer Aspire 5100 is messed up ?


I had a laptop in my shop recently with the same problem. If you moved the machine at all it would blue screen. The problem was a connector on the motherboard that had came loose and was shorting the system out. I had to tear the machine completely down, and it took me hours to find it. With that said, you have a short somewhere on the board, whether it be a loose connection or bare wire, and it would be in your best interest to take it to a professional to find the problem.
