    Acer 5100 Laptop overheating and BSOD.



    Now in the shop to get fixed.



    All started with the overheating and then Vista SP1 was released and killed the machine.



    Lost around 50gb of music on the laptop as the machine would not boot, partitions corrupted and general usual behaviour of Windows based machines.



    Now considering an Apple Mac or switching to Linux.

Blue screen on my acer aspire 4736z laptop


Do a high level format first. Download AUTOCLAVE burn it to disk run it this will put the hard drive in a preformatted state then reinstall XP. To avoid the blue screen of death I use Linux (PINGUY 11.04)

Hi! I have and Acer Aspire Mini notebook laptop. boot to windowsxp then bluescreen shutdown. please help


This might be RAM problem. Replace with new one or Clean the RAM and Reinsert it and check., if same happens again then reinstall the operating system.

These are the 2 causes for Blue Screen in rare cases it might be with new hardware also.

Hope this information is useful

Acer aspire 5572 problem


your problem is called BSOD (blue screen of death).
many thing can cause this problem.
most common thing that cause BSOD are Operating system, memory and harddrive.
sometime motherboard+cpu can cause BSOD too, but not as often as memory+hdd+OS.
you should re-installed it first, if you still have BSOD,
ask your technician to check hdd and memory, if they can check motherboard + cpu, it would be good for you,

Acer Aspire 5100 Problem


its a fault caused by memory but not because of memory.
Either check ur hard drive with a utility(chkdsk)
or remove hd and clean pins and connection(small shaving brush is ideal for this) replace hd.
It could be bad sectors on drive and if not solved sooner than later ur hd can become damaged beyond repair.
if you have a xp disk,boot up with disk and select "r" for repair then once in dos platform type in " chkdsk" this is the easiest way there are other ways but can cause problems.

BSOD on a acer 5100 laptop


When you get the BSOD it should provide a number like...
STOP: 0x00000050
Google this number and it will usually provide an answer.
