Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
My acer aspire 5100 notebook has a problem :(
it constantly freezes up, then flashes a blue screen and restarts.
right while im in the middle of assignments and stuff.
its very frustrating.
please please please please help :)
When I try to watch a video from the internet in full screen mode after 10 or 15 seconds the screen will go black but i will still get the audio. It only happens with videos from the internet not windows media player. How can i fix it?

This is a Blue-screen stop error. At the very bottom of the screen there shoud be the name of the file (process) along with the hex address of of the error., In my case it was related to the "ar5211,sys". You can find a fix on Microsoft updates. Use the custom scan and it should show up under hardware.updates.

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.
