When you turn on the computer, press the F8 key multiple times to get to a menu (recovery, safe mode). If you get there, select Safe Mode. Once on Safe mode, restart the computer to see if it ever gets to normal boot.
If your PC has a recovery partition: Turn it off. Before Windows logo appears (after it turns on) keeps pressing F8. Then you should see Do a system restore? Keep pressing F8. Then follow what your computer will give you.
If you have a DVD/CD drive and a recovery (reinstall too) disk: Insert it in. Turn off your PC. Turn it on again. Then keep pressing F12 or F8 (any works). After that you should see a boot-menu. Select the option which says to boot from the CD/DVD drive. Then follow the instructions.
Hello, to use the built in recovery with your laptop you need to do a few things. First, turn off your computer. When turning it back on immediately start pressing F8 until you get the advanced boot options screen. An option there should be repair my computer.

Try booting the thing in Safe Mode. Upon startup (after the Acer logo goes) press F8 several times. You will be offered a menu select Safe Mode (at the very top of the list). If the system reaches the desktop, you can repair your Windows. For the three fixes below you will need to go Start Menu>Run... 1) Write: fixmbr, and press ENTER. 2) Write: fixboot, and press ENTER. 3) Write: chkdsk, and press ENTER. (The later will take several minutes, but you can read what stage it is doing).
I'm not sure about ACER but many desktops/laptops have a special menu with Safe Mode, LKGC, etc. Try pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer boots up. It should bring you into a menu. Select Last Known Good Configuration. This may or may not work if your backup is faulty but it is the first thing I would try. If this doesn't work I would try going into Safe Mode with Networking and attempt to backup all your data. Once this is done you can recover the OS using the recovery disk. These are generic instructions so please also refer to this link for ACER specific ideas.
