    what happened before you experienced this issue? Are you playing a game, applications or surfing the Internet? Do you have an antivirus? You have stated that you've tried all the modes. Are those modes the one that you can see when you press "F8" ?

    You can take the laptop to someone that knows computer repair. Replacing a laptop hard drive and reloading Windows is what you need to have done

    Well, if my acer already tried everything from the modes available and yet, nothing happens. I can say that an OS reformat is necessary for this issue. Please do so, what Tmagic650 has said.
