Acer Aspire 57202. Running Vista
I brought it to a shop today and they said without looking at it "to me it sounds like the hard drive".
Before bringing it to the shop I actually got the computer all the way to the log on screen (after going through the system repair process). I wasnt able to log on due to the keyboard not responding. Yesterday it was the opposite, I was able to type but didnt respond to the enter key or the mouse when clicking log on.
