Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Check for virus first You could have a boot record virus. that said, once the system comes up, backup your files on say a 4gig USB stick. and reinstall the OS or if the system comes with recovery SW use it and rebuild the system.
If you still have problems, you may have to resort to a new Motherboard. ie (mainboard).
I got news for you they are not that hard to change out.
take a few digital photos of the board before you pull it apart.
Make sure you get the right board. CDW could help you with that. and go one for one with the replacement.
It's not as hard as you think.
replacing a MB takes less than 20 min.
I've replaced over 4000 of them from Laptop to desktop to servers in the past 15 years. they have gotten easier in recent years. just make sure you use a static (grounding) strap when doing this. A carpet shock to a computer component is equivalent to you or I getting hit by lighting. even the ones you never feel will distroy the smaller components over time.

Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults
after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 must be installed
hope this helps
