everybody agree?
mine was acer travelmate 5320, similar symptoms, lots of lappys out there with similar symptoms, and no fixes or help
your lappy like mine is NOT known to require reflow, like some lappys DO
mine turned out to be CPU
I was about to replace the bios chip before cpu
reflow seems drastic at this stage (they dont seem to last anyway)
