Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Long story short, 1st LCD got broke. Hooked up External Monitor until replacement LCD arrived. Computer was working until all of a sudden after sitting for and hour not being used, The external monitor went black. The battery and power light were still lite and fan on, but no hd sounds. After a Hard power down the computer will not boot up or do anything. Let it sit over night, and it will start and run fine. Let it sit, and it will go black. Repeat. Next day, when it will boot, and it goes through a disk check, the clock and date are wrong. Reset and it runs fine.
Replaced LCD. Everything works fine except, let it sit for some time and it goes black, rinse and repeat.
Acer says, Restore if that doesn't work "reinstall everything".
My question is what is the real problem, Is it a CMOS battery, RAM, Video card, or a hard drive. I figure it is not the LCD since it does this when connected to an external monitor. How do I tell without replaceing all and finding out it is something soddered or on the motherboard?
Might be that the graphics card is overheating.
