    Stuck on the boot logo screen? Applying a bfh to the screen should fix this.

    As @billsey suggested earlier, the flash memory has only  a limited number of read/write cycles. Like a USB stick. This might be what you're running up against. I don't think it effectively uses the onboard RAM to minimize this while running like a normal SSD that usually also has higher quality flash memory.

    Well, I used to factory reset it every month after I filled up the storage :/

    OK. That might be it then. My cheap USB sticks typically survive only 3 or 4 wipes. So I also backup all my really critical stuff weekly on another HDD.

    BFH? A big friendly hammer from the HomeDepot.

    The Acer logo runs off the ROM and doesn't require access to the drive. Loading the OS after the logo appears is what needs the drive to complete.
