Do you have more of those recovery discs? are you sure you have the right one inserted?
I remember on my acer I first had to enter a system disc, then when asked the two recovery discs.
If your unable to get it working with those cds I would suggest you get your hands on a original windows xp or vista installation cd and install windows from it.
also have you tried to enter the boot menu on start up? when you power up it says on some corner of the screen what button to press to get it to open the boot menu and then select the cd/dvd rom drive.
Let me know if you need anything else.

this case, first you have to enter setup by pressing F2 at boot time,
as soon as the ACER logo appears in the screen. Then, you will need
to switch the SATA Mode to IDE from AHCI.
Main -> SATA Mode -> IDE
is done to allow Window XP to see your SATA.as an IDE disk and
install the system.
you get the external USB CD/DVD driver to use with a Windows XP
installer CD, connect it to you laptop, switch it on and press F2
again to enter Setup.
time, scroll over to the BOOT menu and press Enter. Scroll down to
the last option USB CD- Rom and then use the F5 key to move it to the
top of the boot list order. Then press Escape and then F10 and finally Enter. The computer will restart and load the CD and you can start
the installation of Windows XP.
Hope this info may help you!
