Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
It sounds as if your hard drive has some bad clusters or errors, if you wish to repair your system, when the notebook is turned on press F2 or Del, i think Del to enter the bios and make the cdrom the first boot device otherwise the disc will not be seen.
Save the settings and exit for a reboot and then insert your cd before it starts to boot up again and it should halt on the boot and say press enter to boot from cd, do so and then depending on the cd you have should say press 'R' for repair or F8 or Enter to install windows, if you have docs and stuff still on your notebook, choose 'R' as this will not delete anything, just repair the system files, and then follow the set up instructions.
