Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I'm getting an intermittent screen problem. Occasionally the screen goes blue and gives the following message:
*** STOP: 0x000000c5 (0x00c50104, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x00000000,
It might be the graphics card? Or driver? Or RAM?
Any suggestions before I take it in for repair? Thanks
Here's the collective wisdom so far: (reprint)
1) Blue Screen Stop Error. Acer freezes, flashes blue, and then restarts? www.microsoft.com. You can find a fix on Microsoft updates. 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". Use the custom scan and it should show up under hardware.updates.; alternative - 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.
Remove HD and clean pins
Boot up with OS boot-up disk and select R for Repair, then Chkdsk in DOS
