1. If you have OS, XP, or Vista you have to insert it and try to click repair. See it heals. If it doesn't you have 50/50 chance of retrieving files in your laptop.
2. If it can't be opened. try to run DOS and reformat drive. second option is insert OS for reformat.

Computer infested and very slow

Reformatting is the best solution for that. Just have your important files backed up first in a safe partition like drive D: and then reformat drive C: After successfully reformatting, don't ever open drive D yet because the virus in there might destroy your system and programs again. You can connect to the internet to get the latest version of AVG. If you are willing to spend a few bucks, you can go for paid AV but if not, I am suggesting free AVG as it won't corrupt your system.

The laptop does not open after the logo of windows 98 appears, could it be locked?

No, if it were locked you would come to the prompt screen for the password. Sounds like the operating system has crashed or became corrupted. Try reformatting and reinstalling Windows 98, or upgrade it it will handle Windows XP

When powering on the computer freezes on the ''Acer'' opening page. Tried to hit F2 to go into setup and it froze there too.

try logging in to safe mode. if it freezes still i suspect your OS (operating system) is corrupted. you might need to reformat it.

Getting a error 320

Hello again,

Sounds to me that the software you are using is corrupt and if that is the case the only solution is to rebuild the OS by using a CD. This isn't uncommon, if their is a bad sector on the Hard Drive this can cause the software to error and become corrupt. A full reformat and installation is the only solution if the software is corrupt.

Hope that helps,
