I have an 18 month old Acer Aspire laptop that locks up randomly. Sometime at the ACER screen during bootup, other times when running applications. I have replaced the hard drive and reinstalled XP from the rebuild. That has not helped. I would like to try to run sme tests on the motherboard. Does anyone know of shareware I could use or is this kind of software propritary to motherboard makers or computer manufacturers?

Laptop motherboards are almost always special designs and you would likely need to get any diagnostics from Acer. Also you need to run tests on your memory, you can run memtest86 from a CD or floppy, just let it run for a couple of hours and see if it shows any errors. Just Google for:
