Re: acer 5100

Are you able to restore the computer if so that may be your problem. By the way you have explained it seems like a software problem and not a hardware one.

Acer desktop lost my window vista during restoration have no back up disc it keeps shutting down

What your saying is you removed your Recovery Partition? Have you tried a Full Factory Recovery? Remove ALL media DVD, CD, USB, etc. Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in , Power on the laptop. Immediately tap the "Alt" and "F10" keys, repeatedly.

Received a blue crash screen, Alt,F10 for erecovery, showed copying files, then tried to reboot and shut down without completing reboot. Now when try to start, showes windows small window and moving dots...

You can use a torrent site like isoHUNT, to download a copy of the Acer OEM vista disc, this is a little illegal, but if you use your own Windows key from your COA sticker, it should register and activate ok.
You may have to download your drivers seperatly from from ACER.
You will need a torrent client like UTorrent, and the download could take a day or so

I cant down load any games it opens an error blue screen and shuts down

Your Operating System has developed errors (corrupted).
This leads to the blue screen apearing when you try to perform some processes like downloading files, try to burn a CD/DVD.
You can solve this problem by reinstalling your service pack.
If you are using Windows XP, i recomend Service Pack 3, download from the link below:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

If this doesnt work, reinstall your Operating System. Remember to backup your data before OS installation.

Acer 5100 Vista Boot up issue

sounds like you need to reinstall the operating system. if you don't have the disk you can call acer and they will send you the disk. they might charge you for the disk usually between $15 and $30.

Maybe is a software problme ????

While booting up, just after BIOS lists computer peripherals (prior to WIndows logo), press F8 repeatedly. In the menu pick Safe Mode (Command Prompt). If the blue screen of death doesn't appear, type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. This might fix some hard disk issues that were preventing normal boot up.

Acer ferrari 3500 problem

Your video card in the laptop is failing. If you remove it, reapply new thermal paste and clean it all out while you are in there it may be fine.
Heat will cause all of your stated issues, as well as doing damage to the video card.
Laptops have a habit of building up dust and hair on the fins of the heatsinks causing them to bocome blocked and should be cleaned every 6 months at least.

Blue Screen of Death, but not quite

hard drive is a main failure concern, check to ensure power supply is plugged in. sounds like you have a corrupted rgistry file-locate OS for that unit and hit ''repair'', should solve the problem.
