Sorry if this has already been covered and please link me to the destination if so but I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.
I have an old Acer inspire V3 that won't boot. It will either go to the BSOD (Picture attached), after 5-10 mins load screen or just completely restart. I have managed to get it into the bios a couple of times but far from every attempt.
Now I'm not overly bothered about this laptop as I have my desktop and will be buying a new upgraded laptop in the near future but I would like to build my knowledge of computers and networking primarily. So my main query is how would people go about troubleshooting this? eventually, I'm hoping to know how to troubleshoot my issues and not just follow directions but understand the methodology. I'm willing to spend some money on getting this back up and running as I want to use it as a test laptop so I can continue to break and fix it as I learn
I managed to find a couple of basic flowcharts online but nothing that really goes into the detail that I'm looking for, so I was hoping the forum might be a better fountain of knowledge. Also having my first post might link me to some good people in the community.
Look forward to making my own contributions as I learn.

Moved to BSOD forum since this is, after all, about a BSOD
