Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Acer Aspire 5100 crashes when not plugged into charger.

Hi everyone,

I'm having an issue where my Acer Aspire 5100 (w/ Windows Vista) will crash only when it's not plugged into the charger. If I'm running off the charger it runs perfectly, so I'm kind of limited to where I'm situated whilst working.

It's also quite strange when it crashes - a series of vertical lines appear across the screen, which vary in colour each crash.

Any ideas would be great. I'm no expert but I'm assuming it's a power supply issue?

Cheers.

You can use a torrent site like isoHUNT, to download a copy of the Acer OEM vista disc, this is a little illegal, but if you use your own Windows key from your COA sticker, it should register and activate ok.
You may have to download your drivers seperatly from from ACER.
You will need a torrent client like UTorrent, and the download could take a day or so

so ..my advise is to reinstall the windows xp ...cause this machine it was on xp from the first ...and this might be just the reason ..those are the drivers for it
also ...you can download Everest software ...and locate the exact name of the wifi platform ..and look after that for a vista driver for it by its name ......this way you cant be wrong ...cause you locate the suitable driver ...not the ones they feed us in packages...

Windows failed 2 restart


A system restore would correct the problem perhaps upon boot try f8 I believe or f2 I forget with vista and try booting in safe mode, if windows can't correct itself reload.

Pretty simple. You'll just need to determine whether the system uses SATA or IDE for the hard drive interface. Many machines manufactured in the past couple of years use SATA, but any 2.5" drive will be compatible providing you have the correct interface. ATA drives for laptops are generally called PATA and if it's such an interface any ATA-6 drive will be compatible.

You might need a SATA driver for the Vista installation, so bear that in mind. You'd specify additional drivers during the setup process.

Good luck.

I'm not familiar with Windows Vista, but maybe it's a problem with some driver. Try to boot up in safe mode and see if you get a response from the keyboard and mouse. If you do then it might be a driver issue. Sorry I can't give you the exact solution. But I hope it helps in solving this problem.
