Re: system volume on disk is corrupt
Assuming you have Windows Vista as an OS on it..
That's a hardware problem, not a Vista problem, the file system is munged and the HDD cannot be loaded. Often times, this is only resolved by recreating the system
volume and starting from scratch. Boot from the DVD and try running a
chkdsk /r from the recovery environment (choose the command prompt
option), see if it can fix the drive. Otherwise, you may have to go the
long way 'round. Hopefully you backed up your data on a regular basis
For more detailed information from Microsoft
Follow the link below to the MS website it explains how to fix this. You will need the Recovery CD to boot into windows.

The Recovery disk could be damaged or corrupted. The reason you are getting the Ethernet controller error your laptop can not find an operating system on the drive. With the aspire try ALT-F10 when you power on the system it will take you to a system restore partition. This will only work if the Hard drive is working. And it will wipe your drive so if you did not have any backups well you will lose all data on the disk.
The error indicates that there's a hard drive issue. If it just happened after the hard disk is reinstalled, remove it and reinstall it. It could be a problem caused by loose connection or improper connections. If the same problem repeats, install the hard drive on another system (to verify whether it works on another machine or not and to confirm it still works). If it doesn't work on another computer/system then your only option to run the system is replacing the hard disk. If it works on another computer or if it's detected on another system, then there could be problem with the hard disk, eg. Corrupt Partition, Windows Corrupt etc.... First of all, try booting into Safe Mode. You have to press F8 during the startup to go into Advanced Boot Options. Once you are in the Windows Advanced Boot Options, select Safe Mode using the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard. If it still doesn't work, it's the hard disk issue. Try with another Hard Disk. But if in case you can boot into safe mode, check the Hard Disk for errors. In other words, run Windows Checkdisk utility. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need further help. Good Luck.

Severe Windows corruption - the driver you removed has prevented the reboot and corrupted all the other video files.
Try booting in Safe Mode - in there the default driver should be selected. In there try to reinstall the driver again. If that fails the only thing left is to do a repair install (if you have a retail install disk) or a full reinstall - if you have a recovery disk.
Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.
Either the disk-drive is "dying" (implying that the 'NTLDR' file cannot be read from the disk-drive),
or you have a CD-disk in the CD-ROM drive (remove it, and restart)
or the file-system on your disk-drive is "corrupted" (compare to a scrambled table-of-contents for a set of encyclopedia -- when scrambled, you cannot find anything, although all the volumes are present).
Take your computer to a professional technician, for trouble-shooting, and repair.
it may be driver or disk problem. please run drive diagnostics [when starting up ESC and F3] if ti's driver, the safest thing to do would be remove drive from pc and connect it to other machine [with it's own hd] and reinstall graphics driver.
it may be also system corruption, so try repairing system from install cd first
