Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
The registry is THE program that tells your computer, essentially, how to run--what steps to take to load the various setup aspects etc. that have been compiled for your computer. It is not hardware, it is part of software. If you have a restore function, and you can get to it (maybe through going to safe mode--check your manual for how to get to that). you might be able to get things back, but you may have to wind up reformatting the hard disk, which means you lose everything on the computer. Actually, there are two copies of the registry. In case one gets corrupted, the machine will try to boot the other one, so if your machine is, with several reboot tries, not able to get the registry, then you have a significant software problem.

This seems to be a common problem with laptops over a couple of years old. Dust gets trapped in the copper fins and the fan of the CPU heatsink and reduces the efficiency of the cooling, which results in regular power off's by the laptop as it gets over it's upper temperature setting. The fix is relatively easy, just remove the heatsink unit, blow it clean with compressed air, clean the old CPU heatsink paste off with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and spray a thin film of heatsink paste on the CPU.
