Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook ?

Acer aspire 5050 keeps looping the acer screen and shuts down

\015 When powered on it shows the acer screen where you can enter the setup screen then shuts off and restarts over and over until you shut it off. I ordered the recovery and system disc, but when i put in the system disc it reads it for a while then askes for disc 2 or recovery cd then after putting it in it asks for it again and wont go any farther, I had my hard drive checked and its ok, can you help. Thanks\015

Answers :

If the hard drive tested out ok (?) then I would burn a copy of memtest (free just google it) boot from it and test the memory. I would suggest though that the issue is the hard drive or possibly motherboard
