Hi The only way I can boot my Acer Aspire 5022 is to go into the Bios mode, leave it fo 10 mins, then reboot. It wont boot from cold. Once I've done this procedure, the machine runs without issue. If I ty and boot from cold, it gets most of the way there and then BSOD, with varying excuses such as 'page fault in non paged area' and lots of other things. What I'm wondering is that this issue started at about the same time that the battery was deteriorating, and therefore could it be related? The battery no longer holds any charge at all.
