You need to set the BIOS configuration to boot from the CD.
I'm not sure how the Travelmate enters the BIOS (Setup), it could be the F1, F2, ESC or DEL ket after the ACER logo and before the Windows logo appear on the screen. When the BIOS opens, go to the Config page, set the CD to be the first boot device.
Hard drive has been coruppted. Hold alt f10 on statup to format and reinstall. If that dont work you may need to try install from cd's provided when you purchased laptop. If that dont work buy new hard drive and restore from cd's. Good Luck.
If Your Travelmate comes with Preloaded operating system.You must have operating system Cd. If it is not u r not having operating system CD. may u r trying using driver and documentation cd.It is not a bootable operating CD.
2.if u r using right cd then go to bios setting select option cd as first bootable device.
You could have a problem with the cdrom drive, thus the whine. Since it can't read the cdrom drive it goes then to read the hard drive (thus going around in circles).
If you have access to another computer, put the cd recovery drives on a flash drive, have the computer boot to the flash drive (if bios capable). The flash drive will recover your computer the same way your cd's did.
You don't need the original setup cd as long as you have the windows cd you can boot up the pc using that cd and just repair the windows or install it over cause its only a file messed up. Get back to me
