SOURCE: acer 7720 will not boot
Do you want to try and see if a 'Linux LiveCD' boots? This is the way I test if the computer works. You burn this CD to a disk, and then boot off of it when you're computer starts. I will not modify anything on your computer as long as you go to 'Try Ubuntu with out installing'
Don't worry, I'm not trying to get you to install anything, just see if it boots into the 'live environment' (means you are running it off of the cd) If this works, that means that it is only your windows installation is messed up, and a reinstallation of windows should work fine with a Windows install CD NOT the recovery cd.

SOURCE: 7720 will not boot
off course it is repairable dont worry look try to install OS thru the following procedure to factory default state
Acer: When you first turn on the laptop and see the Acer logo screen, hold the ALT key and press the F10 key (you need to do this before the Acer logo disappears).
if it installs the OS ok then fine if not
pls consider changing RAM take out from beneath the laptop open the cover all screws and take out the L shaped panel then u will see the RAM in front with 2 chips one uper and one lower side try to take out both and then re fit only one in the upper slot and then try to install if hangs again , then try the 2nd chip in the first slot and repeat the procedure if it works ok only try both chips one by one if it resolves ur issue and u find the faulty one replace it with new one with sam specs
in the last case if ur system still hangs then my friend ur hard disk is giving u hard time it needs replacement
when a system boots after bios loading all that is trf from Hdisk to RAM and then OS is loaded if one have problem system will hang or freeze try these solutions and then tell me the results
pls go step by step
and pls rate me fixya if i fixed ur problem
kindly let me know abt it and tell me in detail the messages u get and the system behaviour

check the BIOS setup screen, when you get the ACER screen press F2 or F10 or the DEL or END or ESC key one of those will get you into the bIOS SETUP. Once there revise the boot order, make sure the CD is first to boot then HDD. Also review to see if the BIOS recosgnized the HDD. the symptom you are describing may be a bad HDD.

SOURCE: Acer says this when i sign-on:
It's not able to see your hard drive. Something may have changed in CMOS about the boot order. You should enter the bios and see if it sees your hard drive. Then go into advanced boot options. First boot object is usually set to CD Rom for setting up operating systems and the second boot device should be your hard drive. Third boot option can be left at none or a floppy drive if you have one. If the bios is seeing your hard drive and it is set as a boot option then the drive may be damaged or system files have been lost. If there are valuable files on the hard drive and it is failing then you might consider taking this to a professional and trying to rescue your files asap before the drive deteriorates any more than it is. You can also try some repair options from booting off the Window's CD but beware that formating your drive is one of the options and this will erase any files you have on the drive.

no, xp cannot create the start-up disk. it can only be created on the same machine and in the same os as it is intended to repair.
