    Not sure if this is an active newsgroup.

    Have a Acer 1524WLMi which I've had for about 6 years. Works great, except
    for one thing. I've set up a BIOS password. After showing the BIOS bootup
    screen, I get a black screen with a blue box in the centre saying "Please
    enter password". There is a blinking cursor where the entry is. 999 out of
    1000 times, I enter the password, and Windows XP loads fine. But about once
    every thousand times, I'll be entering the password and the cursor will stop
    blinking and a few seconds later the laptop will power off. Once this
    happens, it will probably happen a few times. If I leave the laptop alone
    for a few hours, it usually recovers.

    Very rare and very worrying.
