I have an old Acer Aspire 5742Z. About 10 years old running Windows 7.
Hadn't used it for 2 or 3 years. Want to pass it on to someone to use for Zoom calls.
Fired up ok first time but crashed on entering Windows password.
Wont boot now. Most times it crashes after a few seconds
Get preparing Automatic Repair screen sometimes.
Furthest it has got to is Fatal Error C0000034
Ive tried F8 to boot up in safe mode. No response.
I can enter Setup and have tried booting Zorin from a USB. Doesn't work.
Is there anything left to try or is it for the recycling bin?
