Question about Acer Aspire 5003WLMi Notebook
The laptop thur normal operation will turn on with the harddrive light and battery flashing on and off then load into windows. the problem is that the sometimes;laptop cannot go into p.o.s.t. when it does the screen turns white or does not show anything at all. it only shows the power light only. atfer turning it off and in like 10 or 20 times. it will evenually go thru post and then windows bootleg. however, there are some cases that it goes thur post okay but windows does not boot; the screen turn white or it goes into windows but it lasts about 10 minutes then the screen goes into different colors. so, i don't if its the motherboard built in video card is going bad or the memory is going bad or the harddrive it self. I personally think its the video card going bad but i'm not to sure please reply back to me.
It could be the graphics, but it is a process of illimination as always. When you boot your pc keep pressing F8 and see if it will boot into safe mode. When in safe mode select 'Last known good configuration' as this may cure the problem. If that doesn't work boot into safe mode again, but this time select start windows in safe mode, if this works ok then it maybe a driver problem, probably either the wireless card or graphics, try uninstalling the graphics driver first in add/remove programmes. Restart the pc and windows should find it again and install the driver, if on the next restart the problem returns then it is the graphics driver so download a later version from the acer web site.
