Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Acer 5100 noise from speakers and cpu runs 100%

\015 I have bought a second hand Acer Laptop 5100 and have problems when I watch a dvd or play games. This problem happens and lasts about 1 min, and happens about every 4 - 5 min. I went to task manager when it happens and cpu runs 100% I am running on Windows Vista.\015

Answers :

Even though you bought the laptop used, you can try going to www.acer.com and leave a message they may be able to give you more advice.
\015\012I am thinking it could be the DVD drive or maybe even a memory issue, not really sure, maybe you need to add more memory, I think Acer will be able to help.
\015\012Good Luck.
