    My son has an Acer Aspire Laptop 5630. For some reason when you try and turn it on nothing happens, this will happen 2 or 3 times then it will start to boot up. It then goes to the blue screen where it starts to check the Hard Drive after it has finished checking the drive it starts again to check the drive and just keeps on repeating this action has anyone got any ideas as to what is happening. The OS is XP home sp3. Any help much appreciated.
