Acer Aspire 5100 Display problem

I'm getting an intermittent screen problem. Occasionally the screen goes blue and gives the following message:

*** STOP: 0x000000c5 (0x00c50104, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x00000000,
0x80ce7527)

It might be the graphics card? Or driver? Or RAM?

Any suggestions before I take it in for repair? Thanks

    thanks - but don't understand 'it could do rather driver' can you explain?

    Hi, it could do rather driver. Otherwise if it would be some basic hardware it wouldn't pass the BIOS test (POST). If it normally works and suddenly blue sc., it could be that system tries to access to something what it can't get. It would be good to know during what event it does.

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.

(My Summary)
Chkdisk
Remove HD and clean pins
Boot up with OS boot-up disk and select R for Repair, then Chkdsk in DOS

More than likely the screen Inverter, Anowarul.

http://www.amazon.com/Acer-Aspire-Series-Inverter-Board/dp/B006BHRG9E

However the problem should be diagnosed.

Problem can be;
1) Graphics chipset
2) Video Cable
3) screen Inverter
4) LCD screen

I have a diagnostic flowchart you can follow, if you wish.

The plastic frame in front the LCD screen is the Display Bezel.
(Acer? LCD Bezel)

Once removed the screen Inverter is right there in front.
Mounted to the bottom of the LCD screen's Screen Frame.

Need SATA HDD password for acer aspire 5100


When everything gets done loading the screen says:

Unknown Disc
<There is no disk in this drive.>

it gives that error message 4 times on the "select partition" list

Reguardless of what i click (besides Quit) being Install or Delete, I get the Blue Screen of Death

"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA"
Technical Information
STOP: 0x00000050
setupdd.sys Address F77F8245 base ar F77CA000

I did some research and I came up with possible RAM faultyness, so, I switched the RAM chips from my Acer to the AW (which obviously work, or else i wouldnt be typing this) and i get the identical blue screen error

What bugs me about that specific error is before it even says "Click button to boot from CD" it says RAM cleared... video shadowed etc. etc.

From beginning to end this is what i did:
1. Swapped out new HD
2. Used Utility disc to set-up HD
3. Attempted to install XP
4. swapped RAM chips
5. Attempted again

im at a complete stump to what to do to fix this... any help would be GREATLY appreciated

Are you able to restore the computer if so that may be your problem. By the way you have explained it seems like a software problem and not a hardware one.
