Re: tecniical diffacultyes

Ive had the same problem with one of my laptops and i found out that sometimes the computer wont start because the cooling fan wont work u see when the cooling fan is broken theres something in the computer a magnet of somesort that wont let it boot because it will overheat if stayed on too long this might not be the problem but if it is i would take t to a computer place and have them fix it before it overheats or put one in urself and get on off google just type in acer 5100 cooling fans if u have experience with computers hope this helps noah

Acer 5100 will not power on

Computer does not boot upThe problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needsreseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

Have an Acer 5100 Aspire. Keyboard, touchpad both not working. If I hold down Alt+Tab+F10 while powering up the laptop will keep the computer from booting up, but nothing else. I have tried USB keyboard...

Do one thing performing the recovery option by ALT+F10 and restore your system to factory default

before that you take backup with the important data

may be your problem is belonged to specification system on your computer ! if your Memory Ram is lower than 512 MB, just you must install Windoes XP Service Pack 2 on your PC, after finalization the XP OS find to drivers for the hardware from device manager and update all drivers and restart your PC,... if with this practicing your pc same before is worked slowly, I think your Hard Drive got Bad Sector you have to use Hirnes Boot to slove all problem inside your HDD ..

after complete erasing press ESC button on your Keyboard then remove Hirnes boot CD and bring back Windows XP to your CD room begin installing OS from first ..

you will be sure after this practice your computer will be faster than now ..get it hirnees boot from here read more information about it

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
