If your system is still under warranty, take it back to the supplier if not then your nearest pc repair centre. Sounds to me like your HDD is going. This is rather unusual considering most of them are SSDs but some do have 1.8" ZIF drives in.

It sure sounds like a problem with the hard drive. Acers usually don't include diagnostic tools to check it out, but that is what I would do next. If you don't know how to proceed, use a hard drive diagnostic like DFT to diagnose the hard drive.
to get the info and download the DFT program. This will work on non-Hitachi drives as well, so don't worry about what type of drive is in your Acer.
If the drive is bad, it is a fairly simple matter of installing a new hard drive and reinstalling windows onto it. It's hard to say if the data on that drive is recoverable or not.

SOURCE: when i turn my acer

It looks as though the laptop is not recognising the hard drive, there is no hard drive fitted or there is a hard drive but the OS boot record has been wiped ( I know this sounds obvious but some people buy these 2nd hand only to find the hard drive was removed)

You need to check the hard drive is present by booting to the bios screen it should "see" the hard drive attached. If it is present, then you have a problem with the OS or a damaged hard drive. I think its DEL or F2 or F10 to access the bios, not certain.

At this point, you need to attempt to reinstall the OS, as this does not have an optical drive, you will need to obtain a USB Optical drive, go into the bios and see that it is recognised as a boot device. Do not worry about setting the boot order, the Bios will locate the rom as a boot device.

Attempt a start up repair, ie: wait until the installer looks for a previous installation of windows (if one exists) then allow it to install a repair installation. If it does NOT find this, you will need to doa full install. If at this point you have files you need recovering, a strip down of the netbook and removal of the hard drive will be necessary. You simply then get someone with a computer to jumper your hard drive as a slave and recover the files you need, as a full install requires the hard drive to be fully wiped.

Replace the hard drive after you have done this and proceed with the full reinstall

You can use a USB boot device, but to do this you will need to have access to another computer to make the boot installer:

It is not recognizing your hard drive. Put your Windows installation DVD in the optical drive and try restarting again. It MAY be able to help you but the data on your hard drive may be permanently damaged. You may have to reinstall Windows and all of your applications.

Getting message on my laptop saying no bootable divice

Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

How change bootable device?

You can do this one of two ways

2.With the laptop powered off again with the DVD in
Press the powerbutton and hold down the "c" key this will boot directly to the DVD

***It sounds like you have your boot device in the system preferences set to your XP disk. You can fix this once you boot the mac partion by selecting System Preferences then selecting Startup Disk and choosing the disk you want to boot the drive with.
