Question about Computers & Internet
Icant start about error 17 by starting windows xp
Error 17 sounds like a grub bootloader problem, IE: your Acer disk didn't perhaps reload the boot code for Windows, or remove grub entirely.
Ubuntu 10.10 Latest Version
which can repair what windows has ruined and is unable to fix fix the problem
either burn it to a disk as an iso and install
you might have burn it to an iso first then boot from the cd rom to install ubuntu or you might just try to install ubuntu directly from the download if it does not install you might save it to a folder then burn it as an isohttp://download.cnet.com/active-iso-burner/3000-2646_4-10602452.html
once Ubuntu has been installed on your computer has corrected the fault you will be able to reinstall windows
or keep ubuntu and install windows next door to it
you can have a dual boot computer with both windows and ubuntu linux you will need to partition your hard drive to do this

I have actually used this process to fix my computer with similiar problems and it works.

Your system is not Passing the Power On Self Test or POST and will need to be seen to by a computer technician. He/she will then diagnose the faulty component and then replace it. Claim warranty support if it is available to you.
It could be a loose connection between the RAM modules or actual physical damage at the internal display cable/bus. Some-times these get severed by the hinge.
Test your computer's functionality by connecting a friends computer monitor to the VGA out of your notebook. If it powers on and displays your desktop then the problem lies with either your screen or graphics card, or graphics card connection.
