Hey this is not going to work. I have acer 5100 and I got the same mistake on the boot. I tried to restore bios setting to manufacture deafulls, nothing worked.

SOURCE: media read error check cable
Your computer tries to boot from various devices:
* USB memory-stick
* 3.5" diskette
in some order that has been configured (either at the factory, or by you, during BIOS SETUP).
So, if there is no media in the CD-ROM, no media in the diskette drive, no connected USB drive, then it will boot from either the network (if there is a network-cable that is connected to a "boot-server" system) or from the disk-drive.
So, is your disk-drive getting power?
Is the "data" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive connected?
Is the disk-drive "dead" (not spinning) ?
Check your disk-drive.
You may need to purchase a new disk-drive, connect it, and reinstall Windows.

what error message are you receiving on the blue screen? if it resets to fast start typing f8 at boot and in the advanced menu, toggle down to do not restart on system failure. write down the hex code (0x00XXXXX) and report back. What version of windows are you running? have you tried to press f2 or f1 or whatever key it is to enter setup on your laptop @ boot and disable network boot?
