Laptop freezes on Win XP boot or shuts down before booting starts

Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop will shut down on power up before bios display or freeze up on Win XP boot on normal or safe mode. Have tested hard drive and RAM with UT's on Ultimate Boot CD. Hard drive test OK. RAM memory errors so I replaced RAM but problem remains. Enabled disk to disk recovery in bios (Alt + F10 hot key) but recovery freezes up also.Help!
Thanks in advance,
Bill

When i turn on my laptop it's starts loading the windows xp and all of a sudden it freeze. And also i wanna know where i can buy a new motherboard for my acer laptop aspire 5100.


You might want to go into the bios to turn off halt on all errors,except keyboard.also pressing escape befor it freezes may let you see what is causing the problem while booting up. Maybe come up in safe made,to eliminate lots of taxing stuff. unhook any new stuff you may still have attached. also make sure cd or dvd disk drives are empty.Good luck!

Want to remove Win Vista and install Win XP on two computers


have or can you get a win 95/98 disk...
these disks utilize the dos enviroment...
when you boot with them you can easily get in the dos platform (c://prompt)
once there type in fdisk and follow instructions.
you can also do this from usb ..you need to make usb bootable first.
you may be able to use xp disk and choose repair which will take you to the dos prompt.
you may be able to format hd with vista disk and before it start to install files interrupt it(remove disk)
not advisable though.
if you want program to create bootable usb let me know.
I'll need youre email address to send via attachment.

Acer aspire 5100 won't stay on when booting on battery


replace the battery. Batteries usually only last about two years and it sounds like it just cant hold any more juice. To find a battery go to google.com and type in the model of computer and push search. Sorry for the news but its an easy fix
