SOURCE: Bios update failed *flash*
You are in deep trouble
A problem with refreshing the Bios is that you can corrupt the old one and then the new one does not load leaving you stuck in limbo land
I would contact Acer support and hope that they offer a pre-programmed Bios chip to replace your corrupt one.

You need to remove The Side-Panel. ( Power Lead out )
locate A small round Button Cell Battery.
As big as a 1p or a Cent Piece. ( Usually silver )
carefully prise the Battery Out For Between 10-15 Seconds, And Replace it. replace the power cable. switch on the computer, the bios has now been reset to it,s factory default settings.
if you are prompted to set date/time enter bios ( F2-del Or esc ) dependant On Bios request.
This Should cure your Problems.

Well, if the computer does not even boot from the recovery disc, i would suggest that you take out your drive and backup the files you want to keep and format the drive. Install windows on the clean drive and it should work perfectly again. Always remember to keep your virus protector updated. Hope this can help.

SOURCE: when turning on my acer
Ensure that you havent got a cd in the cd rom then reboot, press F2 or Delete to enter the bios and look for boot options, set the primary boot to your harddrive press F10 and press y to save and exit the bios, Press F11 and set that to boot from harddrive and let the computer boot, if it still dosent boot to windows then the hdd has become faulty, or has been wiped of the operating system and windows will need to be reinstalled.
