Question about PC Laptops
I'm not sure about ACER but many desktops/laptops have a special menu with Safe Mode, LKGC, etc. Try pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer boots up. It should bring you into a menu. Select Last Known Good Configuration. This may or may not work if your backup is faulty but it is the first thing I would try. If this doesn't work I would try going into Safe Mode with Networking and attempt to backup all your data. Once this is done you can recover the OS using the recovery disk. These are generic instructions so please also refer to this link for ACER specific ideas.

this case, first you have to enter setup by pressing F2 at boot time,
as soon as the ACER logo appears in the screen. Then, you will need
to switch the SATA Mode to IDE from AHCI.
Main -> SATA Mode -> IDE
is done to allow Window XP to see your SATA.as an IDE disk and
install the system.
you get the external USB CD/DVD driver to use with a Windows XP
installer CD, connect it to you laptop, switch it on and press F2
again to enter Setup.
time, scroll over to the BOOT menu and press Enter. Scroll down to
the last option USB CD- Rom and then use the F5 key to move it to the
top of the boot list order. Then press Escape and then F10 and finally Enter. The computer will restart and load the CD and you can start
the installation of Windows XP.
Hope this info may help you!
