Re: when i turn my laptop on all i get is a curser
Use the recovery disks you received when you bought the machine. Turn the computer on, insert the cd and reboot the computer.
If all you have is a cursor and there is nothing on the hard drive, then you can either restore to the state it was in when you first bought it, or spend thousands of dollars on data recovery that may not even work.

This indicates a hard drive issue or windows files have been corrupted, try a full recovery of windows, if you have the backup disc all the better, if not power the computer, wait for acer logo press ALT key and tap F10 until it goes into recovery, if nothing happens have your hardware tested.
The hard drive has issues, or windows files are corrupted, If you have a CD installation disc try and reload your operational system, if that fails! have the hardware checked out for possible replacement.

I hope this information helps. Thank you for using FixYa!
Sounds like you might have a missing boot manager; but without a restore disc, there is no easy way to fix this. I would download Ubuntu, a live OS, burn to a CD, insert it into the laptop, and boot into it. Then, you should be able to recover your files by dragging them to an external drive. If there are no files; its also possible the drive failed, and the data is lost.
Either way, ensure that there is currently no CD or external harddrive connect while booting, which can sometimes cause those symptoms.
There are two possiblities, first is your data cable it may damage so you need to change it or your data cable not plugged properly so check it. Secondly, you need to reset your boot order to resolve your issue.
It seems the Hard drive error but first you check hard drive in CMOS Setup, if the HD is appearing in Setup thats mean that the Hard Drive is OK
Then you have to try recover the system by installing Operating System with Recovery CD if you have or by any windows CD/DVD you may have.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution
Turn the computer off, remove the battery, make sure it is not plugged in to power, and hold the power button down for 10 seconds. Wait about a minute before re-installing the battery. If it does it again, hold F10 while the computer is turning on, this should bring you to the "boot select" menu, use the arrows on the keyboard and select "start windows normally" instead of "resume windows". When you get it started up run "Defrag" to prevent this from happening again.
When windows hibernates it saves everything in the ram to a "swap file" on the hard disc. Sometimes hard disc's get "bad sectors", this is considered wear and tear, it happens eventually to all drives. It sounds like there is a bad sector on your disc where the swap file is stored, so you have to start windows without using that part of the disc, then by running defrag the computer will find the bad sector and remember not to use it anymore.
Have a nice day.
