Acer 5100 boot up problem
\015 My Acer 5100 LT crashes and then will not boot past the Acer logo screen but instead beeps twice and then gives the option of F1 to continue or F2 to enter set up. When trying to get in to boot to the XP desktop by pressing control-alt-del it does the same thing. Adjusting settings in the set up also doesn't work so they're now at default.At first I replaced the hard drive since it said that it was bad but this did not solve the problem. Then I tried removing the battery which worked a couple of times but not permanently and then re-installed the hard drive which again seemed to solve the problem but not completely. If I move the LT it will crash. I've sent this off to a reputable repair shop with no lasting success. The shop said it was probably the motherboard but I wonder if something is loose and shorts out or at least partially disconnected and acts up when I move the computer or close it.\015
Sounds like a short in the motherboard. I'd go with what the shop said and replace the motherboard.
