Alright, I have actually been on my glf's computer and she has the same problem. Now, the computer, after restarting a couple of times, starts into vista, which is another BIG problem, and it restarts all the time. Now, the hardware also messed up and the DVD-rw messed up and it does not recognize it all the time. Actually, it only recognizes it maybe once a month. I think that may be due to the internals.

If it is doing exactly the same as it was before, and the problem before related to a motherboard failure, then I would imagine it's the same problem again and needs to go back to Acer.

As it's the second time, I'd be a lot less understanding with them, and demand either your money back or a different model which doesn't suffer this fault consistently. As they have had to replace components, then by law those components have a new 12 month warranty. If they've gone wrong again within 12 months, Acer are obliged to repair or replace at their expense.

2.I thing you are not statisfing with acer service
3.In this scenario you go to consumer court with strong proof.(that means how many days of your laptop stay in service center only like that)

If your Acer is brand new and less than 1 year old then I suggest returning it to the shop where you bought it and have it repaired under warranty. If you try to repair it you may void your warranty.

Acer 5100 noise from speakers and cpu runs 100%


Even though you bought the laptop used, you can try going to www.acer.com and leave a message they may be able to give you more advice.
I am thinking it could be the DVD drive or maybe even a memory issue, not really sure, maybe you need to add more memory, I think Acer will be able to help.
Good Luck.

Wont start up


goto acer.com fill out the warranty info and send it to them, they will repair it within a few days and get it back to you. The problem obviously will be a hardware failure problem that you can't fix without replacing something.

Acer 5100 boot up problem


Sounds like a short in the motherboard. I'd go with what the shop said and replace the motherboard.

FYI,
If your lcd is cracked, your warranty is gone. It doesn't matter if it is accident or not, because it is user fault. Unless you have 3 year total warranty from acer, they will repair 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.
