  1. Acer Aspire 2920Z /MS2229 series can't boot up windows

    Is this model prone to overheating, that can cause hardware problems?

    What are the components of the laptop that i should check?

    Any user-friendly recovery tools/software that you guys can recommend?

    Need to retrieve the data inside.

    Remove the battery, AC adapter and hold the power on button down for 30 seconds. Plug in the AC adapter and try to boot. If this fails, reseat the memory and the hard drive... Last, remove the hard drive and see if the laptop will post with out the drive. If all this fails, the motherboard might be bad. You can remove the hard drive and install it into a USB external enclosure to retrieve the important data using a desktop computer
