multiple BSOD's-this may be a long road!
Hi Guys,

I have an acer aspire timeline 5820T laptop, with windows 7 home premium.

it ha suddenly stopped booting. When i try to boot, it will give me a BSOD which could say almost anything-system service exception, irq not equal, bad driver or say nothing at all other than error codesd which can also be any number of different codes! I haven't installed any new software or anything but there may have been a MS update installed, im not sure.

When you turn the machine on it will say repair startup. if you select yes then the startup repair begins but either freezes, give any one of multiple BSODs or says system restore. if you select yes then the restore starts and lo and behold-BSOD, again could be any of the above.

i can occasionaly boot in safe mode (will only sometimes allow without the BSOD) and actually get to my desktop without a bsod appearing, but when i do i get an error message saying something along the lines of "you will be logged off and windows will restart in one minute"

then the whole cycle starts again.

no matter what i do it simply will not boot correctly nor restore to previous point before crashing.
i am using an old pc for now, but any advice is greatly appreciated!

Get hold of the UBCD from: or

Burn to a CD and Boot to it and run MEMTEST86 to test your memory.
Also run CHKDSK /F
And try the disk manufacturers disk tools for your disk.

From the UBCD, also run a hard drive test, the BIOS should tell you the model of the hard drive and each manufacturer has their own tool for testing which can be found on the UBCD.
