Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

ACER Aspire 5100 powers down at will

\015 Several days ago I clicked the OS update icon as updates were available via the OS. Left the machine running as there were 13 updates to install. Went to bed and when I woke up in the morning the machine had powered off. When I restarted the laptop I received the message "Configuring updates Stage 3 of 3 - 0% complete". After a few seconds the message updates to "99% Complete". After several minutes I get the message "Shutting Down" and the laptop restarts itself and stays in this "Configuring updates..." - "Shutting Down" cycle. Nothing I do allows me to load Windows and use the laptop. I try "Alt F10" and get to a point where "Loading RAMDisk Image" is presented but approximately two thirds of the way through the bar painting the laptop powers off. Hitting F8 brings up the menu that offers the "Repair Your Computer" option but clicking it results in an endless loop with the "Launch Start Up Repair" menu option, that is "Launch Start Up Repair" keeps repeating itself upon clicking this menu option. Also putting my recovery disk in does not work either as the "Loading RAMDISK Image" message appears but the load bar gets approximately two thirds across the screen and the laptop powers itself down.Laptop was working fine until this issue surfaced 3 days ago.\015

Answers :

When you turn the laptop on hit f8 until the menu comes up, try use the last good known configuration. If that does not work tap f8 goto safe mode and then to system restore and restore it to an earlier time. Let me know if it works.
