Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Acer 5100-3835, updated to Win XP SP-3, then I get "Load Error! Press a key to reboot.." - just repeats. Also diagnostic program reported PCI BIOS bug # 81 [000fd950] found. Tried another backup hard drive with a good set of programs from 6+ months ago - same error. Tried restore to original state from DVD's, same error. Tried default BIOS, same error message. Is it hardware or software? Can the BIOS be replaced or downloaded from somewhere? There is a hidden partition for Acer files, so a Master Boot Record is used. That could be corrupted (but not on the spare drive).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
