Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I have an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop that is about 14 months old. Two days ago, I was using it and the screen just went blue, there was nothing on it, just blue screen. I shut it off, then started it back up again, which it did. It worked for several more hours, then it just froze. Nothing was working, not even the clock. So I shut it off again (ugh, I hate doing that!). Then I tried to start it up again, but it turned on and then there was nothing. The fan was going, but the screen was black, so I shut it off and let it sit for about 18 hours.
Yesterday, I started it up and it went to the white Acer start up screen and I chose the option of starting Windows normally, then I got a blue screen that said: "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer." The screen was full of writing, but basically it said that if this was the first time I had received a stop error message I should just restart the computer normally. There were some technical-jargon letter/number series at the bottom. So I restarted the computer, but like the night before, it turned on, but the screen was black. I turned it off and left it again for about 24 hours.
This afternoon I just tried to turn it on again and it got me to where I had entered my password and it got to where it say "Welcome" with the microsoft circle spinning around and then it froze (I only know it froze because the circle stopped spinning). That's when I shut it off and decided to try you all because you gave me good advice on another issue I was having.
I've been told that the hard drive is fried, but I would think that it wouldn't even get me to the welcome screen if that happened. Any ideas what the problem is? Thanks!
Hard drive is a main failure concern, check to ensure power supply is plugged in. sounds like you have a corrupted rgistry file-locate OS for that unit and hit ''repair'', should solve the problem.
