Hi I currently own an acer 5517 model laptop that crashed on my several months ago and I've just been too lazy to take it to a repair shop but hey I figure if I can fix it myself and its just a little minor bug, then it would save me money and time. It currently has an issue with wanting to boot up to the log in screen. It cuts on and runs but always wants to go through a startup repair mode which fails every time. Any ideas as to how I can fix this problem?
My first suggestion would be to check the SMART status of the Hard Drive. You'll need another computer to download and create a bootable disc. If the HDD fails the Quick or extended test, it's time to replace it.
