I'm posting here because I haven't pin pointed the issue in my laptop yet, I think it might be the hard drive but I don't know for sure.
I have a Acer Aspire 7551 laptop. It was working fine until one day it would begin to freeze. Not just hang but freeze to where it would need a hard reboot. It wouldn't do this often and then one day it would do this every few minutes.
It got so bad that I restored the system because I thought it was an OS problem, after the reinstall of windows it would still freeze up completely at random times.
I have tried a chkdsk and found nothing wrong, I have used Crystal Disk, RAM test, and have found nothing at all.
After running chkdsk, the system will now not boot. It gets to the black screen where everything is listed out (the device list), goes to the next screen where it stops on a black screen for about 2 minutes and then goes no where. Goes back to reboot on it's own again.
I would really like this get this laptop fixed but I have no clue what is going on. I have cleaned out the air vents, I have not took off the entire back panel to clean it out (I used an air can on the vents). The fan on the back working, so I don't think it's that?
Help please. I am on the verge of taking it to a custom repair shop and paying over 100 dollars just so I can have this laptop back.
