If your spending that much replacing these drives,i would try to download some engineers type tools to tell you the processing actions and hard drive functions etc(try diagnostic tools for your model)
Then try to get operating information from your manufacturer.

Smart failure predicted on disk and cannot load Vista after format due to projected failure. Now it is happening again on a different HDD. Can both HDD's be ready to fail?

It is entirely possible, but not terribly likely, to have two drives fail in a row. I have had several of my drives make it more than 6 years, and I've seen students come in with dead hard drives they day they bought their machines.

My acer 7520 will not boot up it sas error bootconfiguration data

Oops! that is serious. It means it cannot find a portion of the boot sector on the hard drive.
If you have a system disk, boot from that and when prompted, repair your system.
When it is working, run CHKDSK/F as there are possibly hard drive sector errors that cause this sort of error.
Hope this helps.

My acer 7520 opens with an error reading NVIDIA boot agent 249.0542, then reads PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable, PXE-M0F exiting NVIDIA boot agent.

This error message could be a faulty hard disk or a faulty disk controller.
Reseat the hard disk to see if the problem is fixed.
If not go into the BIOS settings and check if the BIOS can detect the hard disk.
If the hard disk is not detected then remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If the this computer cannot detect it as an external hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. Then the Acer needs a replacement hard disk and Windows installed together with the laptop's device drivers and programs etc.

Acer notebook 7520 turns on and off all the time. Just after pressing the on/off button, the indicator goes on and after 2 seconds its turns off. It does that repeatingly.

this problem is because your system 32 files program files have been eating by a worm and cannot load the windows so it shut down and restart over an over press esc. or f8 se some cool things about ur computer my advice carry it to a tecnichian to format ur hard drive that what i did he will take out your hard drive conect it too another computer and scan it to destroy virus and worms then save your documents and then reinstal the hard driv to ur computer and format it
