Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.
This sounds like it might be some sort of virus or malware. Do you have anti-virus software installed? If you do, run a full scan of your system. Run it at least twice if nothing is found the first time. Windows doesn't typically tell you to press F1 to shutdown your computer.
If you don't have an anti-virus program installed, you can run the Windows Live One Care Safety Scanner from the web:
I did try all that, and it didnt work, on a 5050 acer built on a 3100 gabinet.
I think that the problem is that the cardreader chip is not well glued to the motherboard, that's why it gives you that error. If you try pressing certain points of the computer while booting, it miraculously stops giving that conflict error.
We should be payed back by Acer, as this is an project issue =P
Sounds as if the board is starting to fail. Try what I've listed bellow. If that doesn't work then try a bios flash. If it's still giving you the same problem after trying all of these, then I'm afraid you'll have to replace the motherboard.
Try removing the jumper from the harddrive, then restart or Take the jumper off restart, shut down, then put it back on again or Remove the CMOS battery from system board and boot once . After booting shutdown your system and insert the battery back, start your system and press F1 next time it won't ask you to press F1. Reset your BIOS after that (time,date,etc.)

Every laptop is accompanied by a preinstalled vesion of Windows, on the same hard disk in a hidden space. So if you get a prompt to restore your laptop to a previous state at the beginning of system startup, press the relevant key.
If windows xp is your choice. and want to install it you may need follow the installation instruction from your system manufacturer.
When the system starts up some information is displayed on the screen, like this: " Press F1 to enter setup"
If you press the relevant key and enter the BIOS setup you can find the CPU temperature settings, shutdown temperature etc...
This may not be you case. So I suggest you to get support from a qulified technician. Your system hardware should have some problem. (motherboard or hard disk is more prone to error)
you can also try to find information from your system vendor's manuals and support website.
All the best
With IBM Thinkpad,it telling you that some hardware is faulty, check your keyboard to make sure nothing is stuck. Also it could also be your trackpoint. Usually, replacing the damaged part gets rid of the error!
However there is a bypass key sequence that allows your to continue booting the system even though it gives you error. I'm not 100% sure of what it is but somthing like ESC at boot or F1 or maybe your need the boot to the error page then press ok, then when the system comes up again press f1 or esc then. You'll have to play around with the key sequence a bit.
But to get rid of the error forever you need to replace the damaged part!
