Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I originally had a problem, with a couple of errors flashing up when my computer had finished booting up. (windows\system32igfxres) in four boxes popping up, as i'm not totally sure what these mean, i did a scan with my norton security, and no problems, i then typed up the error heading into ask jeeves which came up with software registerfix, which i then i then bought and installed, as they'd scanned 148 errors and admittedly the internet moved as fast as when i'd first bought my comp, however after restarting the same four boxes came back up, now after hitting repair computer modein my windows box, i'm now in safe mode and have no idea what to do?? ...
Do a system repair with you operating system or recovery disc. This will clear up the system glitch and you won't lose any data.

Tips for a great answer:
Did you try booting your computer in Safe mode to check if you receive this error message?
1. Use F8 while restarting the computer.
2. Under Windows Advanced Boot Options select Safe mode and hit Enter.
Check if you receive this error message in Safe mode.
It seems like your drive might be corrupted. If your computer is still under warranty, I would suggest you to contact them to get a replacement. But before you contact them, let us see whether Check disk utility would make a way to boot windows succesfully or not.
If you've Windows Vista Operating System disc, then try running the check disk utility from Windows Recovery Environment.
1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7. Type the following command and press enter.
Once your machine has finished repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press ENTER to restart your laptop.
You can also try typing the following command if Check disk fails to fix the issue. At the same command prompt, type fixboot and press enter.
For your information: If you've a Dell Laptop, then according to Dell, the error code 2000-0142 is a Drive Self Test failed error code.
