Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Tring to run recovery disk but laptop kepts shut down before process is done
Maybe it's shutting down because it overheating. Check all your air vents for dust buildup. Use an old toothbrush to brush the dust away from the vent holes and blow air through the vents using one of those compressed air cans made for cleaning keyboards. One time I worked on a Sony laptop that I had to take apart to get all the dust cleaned out of the air vent. You can also try running your restore disk with the laptop sitting right next to a window A/C unit. Try to position the laptop so it gets maximum exposure to the cold air of the A/C unit.
If you get the laptop working again and you think overheating is a problem I recommend downloading a free piece of software named FanSpeed. Here's a link.

Be sure that the laptop is plugged in to the power supply before you start! Are you restoring from an image in the machine or a CD or DVD disk?
Either way this takes quite a while and most manufactures warn you that the machine will reboot a few times (I have seen some take 5 reboots) to complete the task, so be patient.
The last part of your question concerns me. If you power cycled the computer (turned it off then on) half way through the process it could be hard crashed. If you have the CD or DVD dish this would not be a big problem but if you are restoring from an image this could be bad. Let us know.
