Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet
If you press F8 just before it boots, select repair. If the system is working you should get the option to repair the OS.

SOURCE: comp won't boot
This could also happen if the hard drive is dead and trying to boot the next item or the BIOS has the Netboot option set as the first boot device.
Jump into your BIOS and make sure that the boot order is CDROM then USB then HDD. Then try again. Let us know what happens.

As the computer starts hit F2 to get you into the bios, look for boot options and set the HDD (hard disk drive) to the first boot device, hit F10, save the changes and exit the bios. The computer will restart and should boot from the hard drive. If it doesn't go back into the bios and look to see if the drive is recognized in the main page of the bios.
If the hard drive is not there then there could be a chance that the hard drive has failed.
Please let me know how you get on and if you need any further assistance.

Sounds to me like there is bad sectors on the hard drive. Replace the hard drive with a known working one. If you still get that error message then at that point try different memory in the laptop.
If it still doesn't go away then its a motherboard issue at that point.

It sounds like your hard disk has gone, or not being recognized by the computer... Check if it seats well in it's place.
Unfortunately, laptop HDDs don't last long these days.
