NTFS Read/Write Bootdisk And Bootable CDs
http://www.bootdisk.com/popfiles.htm
I bought this iso file from here. He charges $4 which is a bargain for this tool. Download the ISO on a working PC with a cd burner and create the boot disk. Boot the problem PC from the CD rom and run chkdsk from the black dos screen.
If this does not fix the problem then open the access door to the hard drive on the bottom of the laptop and find the make and model of the hard drive. Go to the hard drive manufactures web site and download a bootable ISO with the diagnostic utilities for the hard drive. This will tell you if it is fixable. Are you still under warranty? The laptop maker's web site may have a diagnostic tool you can download as well. This will give you a code which the manufacturer's help desk will need to authorize a replacement Hard drive. Other wise find a replacement drive from ebay or other suppler.

You can't boot Windows XP from a floppy disk the way you used to be able to with DOS. One handy way to easily boot XP is by using a USB flash drive. Here's how to make it work. Boot Windows XP from a USB flash drive

Cannot boot from cd and run setup


When booting, the writing on the black screen should give you a couple of options akin to

Press F2 to edit boot options or
Press "Del" to enter setup. (bios)

You can use either, but you need to set your CD/DVD disk drive as the first boot option.

.exe files got corrupted


well, if the CD won't read in Windows, and this is due to a virus, it should not affect the drives functionality before windows loads. You will need to use a bootable CD (like the Windows CD) and when you power on hte computer, enter the boot menu (check bottom of screen during power up for the correct button.) then select CD ROM and see if it will boot to Windows Set up. If it will, exit setup, restart windows, back up your data to a jump drive and then reboot with the CD & boot menu selection, and reload windows. Before you do any of this, go to acer's website and download all of the drivers for your computer to a jump drive, you will need them for the windows reinstall
