It seems the boot program on your hard disk has messed up. Did you try to boot with a CD come with the laptop and do a repair? Or you can restore it to the factory default by pressing a key during booting up. It should be on the manual about the steps of booting up for factory default system restore. I would recommended you to boot with a bootable flash drive or a CD to back up your files. Those bootable flash drive or CD can be bought or made with some operating system. (Most of time Linux). Here is some links to show you how to make USB bootable drives.

You will need to change BIOS settings to boot with USB device first, there might be several USB device there you can choose the non mass storage ones if not sure which one to boot with first. But anyway it will try all of them so put your hard disk to the bottom. After booting and you can access the files on your hard disk, you will be able to move them to your USB device. Then restore it to factory default. If it still halts, then maybe the hard disk is not working properly, I will check it for you with more information like the beeps or other symptoms and the detailed model number of your computer. Or you may contact the reseller or manufacturer.

Place your windows cd/dvd in the tray and boot to the cd. When asked if you want to install windows, there will be a repair option further down towards teh bottom, or you will be asked to click R like before. The repair only works if the cd is in the tray.

If you have Windows Installation disk, use to repair Windows.
First go inside BIOS(Setup) with Del or F2 and change under boot options for CD/DVD to boot up first before HDD.
Put the CD in, boot from it and select repair windows once it comes up

Cant get past the acer screen


ok,your laptop OS file could be damaged so nothing booting later.
you may do follow steps
1) try F8 or F12 into boot sequence, choose safe mode to start your windowas, it could repair your damaged SYSTEM file. if still trouble
2) you may use a OEM windows disk (match your lable type)
booting from CD drive, then choose a windows repair, it maybe recovery your syastem. if can not do so
3) booting a OEM windows disk (match your lable type) reinstall new OS system(use the CDkey on the lable). and some driver you need downloard from Acer website.
hope you fix it, any question feedback any time please.
please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks!
