I need to know what you mean by Blue screen. Do you get a blue desktop screen, or, do you get the blue screen crash window with technical information on it. I will assume you mean the blue screen crash window.
It sounds like a corrupted program bank, or you could have a faulty hard disk, or a memory stick that has gone bad, or perhaps the processor or GPU has failed. without knowing what is on this "blue screen" i can only offer suggestions.
Contact Lenovo and see if they provide diagnostics on this computer. (memory and hdd on board tests, etc). A Diagnostic would test your hardware and ram and CPU and GPU outside of the windows OS. If your ram passes the test, and your CPU passes and your hard drive passes and video/GPU passes the diagnostics, then it is not a physical/hardware issue. If you pass diags, you have a corrupt driver or BIOS setting.
Just to make sure its NOT a bios setting, enter your BIOS and check your raid/sata configuration. 99% of the planet would have this option set to "LEGACY" or to "IDE/EIDE" mode or any mode that is NOT AHCI, because AHCI would require a 3rd party windows driver.
If your hardware fails a diagnostic, you will need to replace the faulty part. If your hardware passes diagnostics, then it is a software issue. Again without knowing more abou the screen you describe, I can only assume and speculate. But, I would make sure my BIOS Sata settings are set for legacy and eide mode, as well as making sure the drives are enabled in bios.

Physical memory dumping


once your computer take an BOD or blue screen of *****. it is an indicator that one of you perepherals was damage. in that case you only have to option the memory cards or the HDD. if some point you dont experience a hard time in booting it is not the HDD. maybe your memory cards was in defective state. sometimes good sometimes bad. try to chkdsk first or scan your HDD for posible bad cluster. and make a test also in your memory using some stress memory tester

Hi there, please restart your laptop when its booting press F8 key . You will find few option asking for selection. Select that by using up/down arrow key. Select " Last know good configuration" & press Enter. Next page asking for selecting operating system, for example: windows vista or Windows XP etc. Just select the operating system & press Enter again. ( Hope your laptop showing only one operating system ). Your laptop will start normally. After the if you seen the screen dark then press FN+Right arrow in key board(>). When you press FN + ( < ) or ( >) key that's time its working for brightness controlling for screen. Now if all well then fine other wise please let me know .
Another suggestion is run your Acer driver DVD for installing Display drivers. When finish restart your laptop and watch whats going. If no success then format the Operating system & reinstall again.
After these two things if the same things happened then straight forward format your OS and install it again. Because your OS corrupted by Virus.

Acer Extensa 5210 laptop wont boot


Try the following:
1) Remove power cord, battery and hold the power switch down for at least 30 seconds.
2) Remove and reinstall your memory module(s).

If those don't do it, get back to me for more ideas.
Thanks!
