Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
Turned On My Laptop Today And There Were No Sounds To Indicate It Was Booting Up, Just The Screen Performing A Disk Check. [As Apparently My Laptop Had Not Been Shut Down Properly - It Had. I Always Shut It Down.]
After About 5 Minutes, the Percentage Hadn't Moved From 0% And It Then Showed A Blue Screen With Vertical Lines Running down The Centre Of The Screen.
What Is This? I've Scanned Every Piece Of Literature On My Laptop I Have, And Have been Given No Answer.It's My Lifeline At The Moment As I Am In The Middle Of Exams For My Degree.
Any Help At All Would Be Much Appreciated As I Have No Idea What's Going On!!
There is a very hig possibility that your Hard Drive developed somebad sectors. What I suggest is try to remove the hard drive and use it as an external drive using a 2nd PC and back up all your imporatnt files immediately. After making sure that all needed data has been extracted, try to reformat the Hard drive and if it is still functional, re-install your OS.
Most of this cases, I highly recommend that you replace your hard drive with a new one.
