If you have your original operating system dvd/disc to hand then put this in the DVD drive, then turn off the PC, turn it back on, see if the DVD boots up, if not, restart and when the pc starts up next time press DEL or Backspace when you turn it back on when you see white dots and bottom of screen with black background, this should get you into the boot menu (if it's not DEL) it maybe F8, F10, or F12 sorry im not sure for your computer but should be one of these(some computers even use F1-F2, your looking for the boot menu. You then need to select the DVD drive to be first in order to boot, save then it will boot up from the disc and attempt a system repair and check your system files are all ok, this may take some time so u leave the PC while it's doing this, if successful it will autmatically boot back up or hopefully give you a error message to tell you whats up.

SOURCE: boot up with no operating system
When the system starts, hold the F10 key and go into BIOS and set CD Rom as 1st Boot device (in Boot Order). Because most Compaq's would put the BIOS in a hidden NON-DOS partition on the hard drive, you may have to get an OEM recovery disk for that model. Because there is no BIOS to go to, the machine doesn't know it has a CD, HD or Floppy to go to. A boot floppy/CD is no help. Alternative 1: With another desktop and IDE to Laptop HD connector, FDISK (make active partition and hidden partition [5mb]), Format both, copy the cabs from WinME CD to c:\windows\options. Alternative 2: Find the COMPAQ OEM CD for that model. Since there was no exact model number Click here Please indicate whether this is helpful or not.

SOURCE: new laptop
Open the hard drive bay and make sure the hard drive is properly seated. close bay
reboot and enter bios to see if hard drive is detected in bios, if the hard drive is detected and still will not boot use recovery console to recover the OS.<ALT><F10>
If the bios does not recognize tthe hard drive, replace hard drive.

Sadly, you can't just download a system restore disk.
Some computers these days have a secret system restore partition, I read that you need to press ALT+F10 to access it, but I can't confirm if that is correct. Try pressing that combination just before you usually get the message.
If the laptop is still under warranty, you probably want to contact Acer.
I decided to check the Acer website (http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/webpage.cfm?siteid=7293&areaid=7&website=AcerPanAm.com/us) and it appears you can buy a new recovery CD, so I guess there may not be a free solution..

you could try going to the boot menu, and choosing 'last known good', but that is probably not going to work.
you should be able to run a repair off the CD....
the file is a kernel, a neccessary file used by Windows. It may have gotten corrupted or deleted.. possibly by a virus or bad hard drive sector.
get a disc, and run repair, if that doesn't fix it, you may need to re-install a fresh copy of windows, which will over-write all your data. you may be able to boot to that upgrade CD and that may have a repair option...
