Serious disk error when using Acer recovery disk

Whilst trying to use the Acer recovery disk on my Acer TravelMate 242LC I got the message "A serious disk error has occurred while writing to drive C". I cannot get Windows XP to start.

    I have backup but I can't even get in to reformat the drive since the recovery CD gives the error message about the serious disk error! Can I reformat the drive without using the Acer recovery CD?

My acer Travelmate 242lc will not power on


First think , has it been dropped, jarred, banged, .....you get the idea? Does it continue to blink, the HDD? Do you see a "ghost image" in the monitor in a bright light? Do you here sounds? You say "nothing else happens", meaning the light stops blinking? Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, try to boot noemally.

You have a serious error on the hard disk caused by incorrect registry entries.
The recovery disk is obviously from a different machine.
If you at the start of booting press F8, hopefully you will get the menu inviting you to recover your system. If you don't, the recovery file is corrupt or missing and you will have to purchase a new OS.
It is probably too late to check for viruses but worth a go with Norton.

A Windows Password Reset Disk could do all the job for you, it can reset your lost or unknown Windows password safely and quickly without login, you can create a Windows password reset disk with the tool Windows Password Breaker, then use it to reset your password.
