Try booting in safe mode. you may want to first try loading the last known good configuration.
To get into the Windows Vista Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use yourarrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key. Let computer boot to safe mode and then shutdown. If problem continues then Start in safe mode again.
After you boot to safe mode then go to Control Panel, System, Advanced System Settings, Advanced tab should be at the forefront. Go towards the bottom of the popup (Startup and Recovery) and select settings. Then in the settings popoup uncheck Automatically Restart. OK and apply everyithing then restart computer. Let me know what happens.

1. Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power"
button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL"
keys at the same time.
2. During startup, hold down the "F8" function key
immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering
3. Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot
Options" menu appears.
If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire
and repeat step 2.
4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode"
selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the
Acer Aspire keyboard.
5. Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode"
The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode"
and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer
Aspire to boot normally again.
It seems that your laptop hardware is good and it seems that it is a software issue.
Boot in safe mode: When your laptop start, press the F8 key. then it will ask you which boot device to boot from, browse using the arrow keys and chose something with HDD and press ENTER and then press the F8 key again. Then you will be given a boot option and choose SAFE MODE.
While in SAFE MODE, try to uninstall your newly installed software that might be causing the laptop to hung up.
Also, click Start => Run then type: msconfig.
Go to the Startup Tab and uncheck the many programs that looks not necessary to load while windows is loading. The program like Yahoo Messenger, Skype can be opened manually so uncheck them if present.
you could try going to the boot menu, and choosing 'last known good', but that is probably not going to work.
you should be able to run a repair off the CD....
the file is a kernel, a neccessary file used by Windows. It may have gotten corrupted or deleted.. possibly by a virus or bad hard drive sector.
get a disc, and run repair, if that doesn't fix it, you may need to re-install a fresh copy of windows, which will over-write all your data. you may be able to boot to that upgrade CD and that may have a repair option...
edit boot options is the order in which your computer will reboot... select hard drive... if it does not successfully boot up... reboot and tap the F8 key.... boot to last known good configuration... if that doesn't work... reboot... F8 the safe mode... if it will boot to safe mode reboot normally... should be fine
If what has happened is true, then the previous owner had killed the BIOS. He has tried to FLASH the BIOS and it failed. This then renderes the motherboard DEAD.
Your only option is to try and find a replacement motherboard.
