Laptop crashing and restarting over and over (and over)?
Acer Aspire 6920
For the past 3+ weeks, my laptop will start up (Acer logo first, then Windows Operating system starts --XP, and finally my desktop is displayed). Within 1-30+ minutes, the laptop will crash--straight to black screen then it will restart the process all over again.
I've had issues with the operating system since I got the laptop (in 2009--I know it's old ;) Nothing to this extent, but always issues.
I have always been able to wipe and use my recovery disks in the past.
This time, I am unable to even use my recovery disks. Will not read the disk. The DVD/CD player seems to work ok--although since all this has started, I can not watch a few of our DVDs on the laptop. It just won't read them---even though it reads others.
I don't really want to send my laptop to Acer again ($219) if I can wipe my c drive on my own which I would prefer to do.
Some advice would be so appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Is this a good question?
