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!

Computer freezes on start-up


whenever your doing a cd recovery you need to remove the battery
use ac power
if its still freezing up you'll have to run windows again
Windows uses a lot of power to install

Boot your Vista recovery cd, then perform a System Restore from a restore point (do not select Install at this time).

Windows failed to start !...


Hi,
Boot your computer with the recovery CD In the Drive.
You should get the option ** Boot From CD**
highlight click Yes, and overwrite the O/S.
This will re-install windows over your existing version, replacing any corrupt-deleted-missing Files.
