Acer computer not booting at altitude?

I own an Acer Aspire One laptop which I bought last April. It works perfectly most of the time. Recently on an airline flight it crashed during the climb. I had to shut it down by holding the power button. When trying to restart I saw the message. No bootable device - Check cable connection. During my stopover in Devnver I couldn't get it to work either. Arriving on the East cost it worked just fine. I performed a disk check and all was well. It gave me no issues while there. During the return flight though Denver I had the same problem. Back home in the Bay Area it works fine. On a trip to Tahoe it wouldn't boot again. Then at home it works again. It sounds like a problem with the hard drive or the motherboard maybe. But why would this happen only when going above a certain altitude? I'm thinking the threshold is in the vicinity of 1000m or maybe 3000 or 4000 feet. Anybody have such an issue? Any ideas?
