This is a known problem with the Acer Aspire 5100 laptop. The only sure way to fix the problem is install a new motherboard.
Some of these will run for many years with no problems others only run for a short period of time. You can purchase a new motherboard on Ebay for about $30.00.

If you lost the XP password and there isn't an Admin password then you can boot into safemode. Once you boot into safemode click the Administrator account. Once it has opened your account panel. Delete the password for the account you can't access.

I need help getting past my windows account user password. please help!

If it is asking for a password, then you will have to enter the password. Othewise, you won't get past it.
If you have Windows XP, you can start in safe mode and log on as administrator--chances are it's not password protected. Most people forget to put a password on it. Then you can change or remove your password.

My presario SR1920NX gradually sloed down and

You more than likely will have to reformat due to a corrupt system...I would try first going into safemode (unless i misunderstood ) and to to start,run type "msconfig" and then go to startup tab....uncheck anything you just installed....caution: if you dont know what it is then dont uncheck it because that will actually cause the error you describe. Or try un-installing what you recently install in safemode. if you cant access safemode then use the recovery mode to recover the system files...usually the computer will ask for the windows XP cd. good luck...hope this helps

Pc running XP is stuck in a loop attempting to boot in Safemode. I set it to do this after failed attempts via F8 setting. How do I get my xp to load up and log-in back? thx!

I had this same thing happen to me. I had messed up registry with a registry cleaner and made my main drive unbootable. Fortunately I have a 2ndary drive which I cloned my primary drive from. Assuming that you have a 2nd or back up drive that its bootable you can do 1 of two things physically switch the order of the cables so that it boots from the other drive first or press delete key during POST/BIOS and switch the boot order there. Even if you had to steal a drive from an old computer to boot from once you are booted you should be able to access data on the other drive (I was able to) Otherwise you may be in trouble...depending on the value of your data you may wish to enlist a professional.

Windows XP start-up problem - Hangs

When you reinstall xp you will not have to reformat the drive. Just reinstall the operating system. As long as you are in safe mode back up what you need to then reinstall xp.

If you need more help let me know.

Sometimes it will come on and freeze in starting xp other times i just get black screen

- If the system can still boot to safemode w/ networking try to download some third party tools to check if the system is infected of virus.
- If the system wont even boot to safemode or freeze under safemode try to do windows repair.
- If this will not help you, try to back-up data using a third party vendor and do clean reinstall or you can also try running diagnostic test to check hardware issue.
