It seems like your harddrive has given up the ghost or thrown out the operating system.Power up the machine and enter the bios (Press either Del,F1,F2 to enter) once in bios check the system can see the harddrive,9 If bios can,t recognise the harddrive then it,s dead, If it can then the next step is boot options and make sure it it booting from the harddisk.
If It is then see if there is a recovery progrom in the bios that will enable a system restore,If not then change the boot option to start with a Cdrom and put in the recovery disk that was supplied with the Pc.

Acer Aspire 3680-2762 cannot find the built-in wireless Lan card

The driver for your wireless card should be HERE.

If that doesn't enable it, you can go to the Acer drivers site and download the driver for your system HERE.

You can Select
"Notebook, Ultrabook" --> "Aspire" --> "Aspire 3680"

Then select your operating system from the pop-up and select the Drivers tab.

its showing operating system not found, because the system cannot detect your hard disk.

Open your system, remove and fix back the hard disk, then try again.

Take care.
