Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
This problem only occur when i play DOTA online or lan, not in a single player mode and not in any other game. Blue scree with white writing appear before the computer restart. As it is too fast i cant read everything but it mention something about dump physical memory. My friend who used to have this says that it might be due to my graphic card driver. Please help me out on this.
Reinstall the sound driver to latest will fix dota bluescreen problem on acer 4520.
It works (try download the sound driver from realtek website)

Hello guys!! i dont think driver was the solution.. im also using the spire 4520.. actually the blue screen appear not becoz of the graphiz card.. it is beacause your realtek audio driver.. i download new driver from acer website and reinstall it.. and guess what?? it works like charm!!! now.. when i play dota.. no more blue screen.. try it.. and while playing dota and PES.. the graphic seems to blurr sometimes.. i think we should update graphic card as well (for acer users only).. best of luck!!

Yes your friend may well be correct, if you have a crash while playing a game it's either a overheating problem, so check the ventillation or it's a graphics driver fault, check incase windows has installed a generic driver in the last windows update, as it may not be right for your system and require the correct driver updating and installing. The memory dump screen is normally called the BSOD, blue screen of death, normally associated with corrupt drivers.

It's really common for the Acer Aspire 5100 to "blue screen" with a message about problems with new hardware suggesting fixed disk because of a motherboard issue relating to overheating.
Even if you've solved a previous overheating issue by clearing the exit vent of fluff, the motherboard is still susceptible to hot spots that cause the blue screen.
Replacement of motherboard is only solution in my experience. If you replace the motherboard remember to keep the fan exit vent clear to prevent future overheating.
