Either the boot area has been damaged by malware or the hard drive is failing.
Changing the boot order to start with the optical drive and using a recovery or installation disk should let you boot so you can run checks on the hard drive.
BTW, a set of 4 recovery disks I received from the system mfr. claim to each be bootable and they definitely are not; there is no reserved space for a boot sector on any of them.

    I suppose that your hard drive and the optical disk could both have bad sectors and produce the same error message but did you access the BIOS and change the boot drive to your optical drive?
    And do you know that the optical disk you are trying to use for boot is clean and readable?
    The error message should include a drive letter; c: for the hard drive and probably e: for the optical drive.

Acer ferrari gives boot mgr is compressed press cont alt del to restart and it will not boot from windows dvd


you should still be able to boot from the windows disk. just out of curiosity did you save the changes when you changed the boot order?

If you manage to get it to boot from the disk you can try the repair option.

Keep getting a read disk error occured on startup and it says press ctrl alt del to restart but the same thing happens again.


Try re-seating your hard drive, removing and putting back in again. Make sure that your hard drive is the first boot in the order from the BIOS.

If you want to use the recovery partition its usually pressing ctrl+f10 or alt+f10 while booting up the machine. if you want to use a cd, you have to change the boot order. access the bios during boot (screen tells you which button to press)change the boot order to set the cd/dvd drive as 1st device, press f10 to save and insert the windows cd.

Try reinstalling the OS with your restore disks. It might be that you have HDD failure in which case you would need to replace the HDD.
