Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

3 Answers

Either a black screen or a blue screen

Hi!
Today morning my friend tried to start her laptop(Acer Aspire 5100) and it did not bootup it just showed black screen with power light on...the keyboard also was not active.
She did not know how to switch it off so she disconnected the power and then removed the battery then put the battery back and tried again..
now the laptop did boot and windows vista started and then after a min. it shows a blue screen with some white spaces and then restarts.
Then I tried to start it again in safe mode there also it stayed for a while but it again restarts.
now one of the following 3 things were happenning at random:
1. it shows black screen and does not boot up
2. it boots up starts vista and then in a min blue screen with white spaces and restarts

I tried two things:
1. windows restore ...it could finish it but still the same problem continues
2. windows memory check (this option comes before the bootup)...it finished and said there seems to be some harware problems.

What do you think - is it a memory problem or motherboard/harddrive problem.....if it is just memory problem...she will buy it and put a new memory otherwise she will send it to acer to get it fixed (its still under warranty).

Thanks.

Acer aspire 5100 laptop has ati graphics driver problem-black scn


Alright. Re-install the ATI drivers but when it asks, select Custome setup.

When it shows the components to be installed, select the Drivers only, Do not install the Catalyst program.

This turned out to be my situation a few years back.

Give it a try and let me know and we can go from there.

Good luck
