Hello!!
I've had my laptop for about 1year and 6 months now.
Few months ago it started having a problem. First was I was getting the blue sceen.

Now, I when I try to open it the light of the disk lightens but just for few seconds and also the fan at tge side? (its heating up as I try to open it for few xonaecurive times) but the screen doesnt show anything amd after dew seconds, it will suddenly stop.

But I was wondering because rarely, if I get lucky, I can open.it (it boots up?) and I do is I choose the safe mode when it opens. So that I can use it for a long time.

Please help me for I dont know anything about this -_-
Here I some details about it but I dont know if it would help:

Acer Aspire 4738G
Intel Core i5 -460M processor
Windows 7

Okay

I suggest you try restoring the system. If you can't restore it, then it's a harware problem that only a qualified hands-on technician can attend to.

Try this:

Restart the system and hit ALT+F10. This will begin restoring from the Aspire system recovery partition. You will be prompted to type six zeros as a security step. Type 000000 to proceed.

You will then see a screen to select your Operating System. Do this and hit enter and the recovery process will begin.

Good luck

Thank you, Ambucias 3

The video does not tell me anything. Try restoring your system as I mentioned or see a qualified technician if you cannot restore.

Good luck

You are welcome but I'm sorry the restore didn't work. It looks as a very bad circuit problem, probably related to the motherboard.

Hi,

When the blue screen problem started did you before add any new hardware of software ? If so which ones ?

Have tried to roll back by doing system restore to a date where you know it worked properly ?

Regards

I didn't add any hardware but the software I think my sister added the autocad.. I have uninstalled it also before.

Yes, I have tried it it was good for few restarts but soon, it stills suddenly freezes and boot again and then also sometimes, it shows the blue screen.
