Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
About two weeks ago, I came home from work and I saw my laptop was off. I knew something was wrong because the AC adaptor light was on, so I knew it was plugged in, and my laptop was on when I left for work. I turned my laptop on, and it came up with a BSOD and stated a 'fatal system error'. I turn off my laptop, boot it up again, and select 'start windows normally' selection from the prompt. Vista begins to load, but my laptop all of a sudden shuts off. I repeat the same steps again, and it goes off, yet again. Finally, I turn it on and it loads, but everything is running at a reduced framerate. A couple of weeks go by, and last week, it happens again, but with no BSOD, and one less shut off. Since then, I can barely run a simple Java-based game on my browser, my typing is severely laggy, and my laptop is getting hot within minutes. I went to Circuit City to ask them about it and all I got was a "Yea, that's a problem you can get". I don't want to go and shell out 60 dollars for them to tell me that, but with them fiddling with my computer. Can anyone give me some insight on what I should do? I'm short on money at the moment, and I need to get this remedied by the time college rolls around this August.
Try to boot in safe mode, if the problem persists then try to boot in last good configuration(for both you have to press f 8 when the bios screen comes when pc is booting)
if all fails then reinstall you operating system will solve the problem
