Question about Acer Aspire 4315 Notebook
When you boot up, and see the Acer logo, hit ALT+F10 to begin the recovery process. The files you need are stored on a hidden partition on your hard drive. Once the process starts, just follow the prompts, but make sure that you have your files backed up first.
If not, have a PC tech remove the drive and backup your files using an external drive reader before you wipe it and start over.

Tips for a great answer:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE
MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look
different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is
normal. If it boots up ok, then do a restart into your normal windows mode.
Try running the check disk utility.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
