Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
The Hard disk failed to start. You have to check weather the HDD wiring is connected properly. If it is, and still no boot device, you probably will need to change the hard drive.

You will need a booting CD for example the Safety Drill CD
Safety Drill is a program that comes with Acer computers for use in the event of a virus attack or malware infection. This program can reinstall the software that you need to combat the attacks on your system. Booting from the Safety Drill boot CD is not hard, but you do have to change the boot sequence on your computer.
Restart your computer and follow the instructions on the screen to enter the BIOS menu. For instance, if your computer screen Press F2 To Enter BIOS," then press "F2."
Use your arrow keys to scroll over to the "Boot" menu.
Scroll down to the "CD ROM" option and highlight it.
Go over to the "Exit" tab and press the "Enter" key to restart your computer.
Open the CD drive on your computer and place the "Safety Drill" CD into it.
Wait for the computer to boot from the CD.

If you don't have documents, pictures,
etc on the hard drive that you need to backup, try running system
recovery by doing the following (not sure if this works on the version
with a solid state drive):
1. Turn on the computer
2. Press and hold Alt + F10
3. Click on Restore System to Factory Default
4. Ensure the netbook is plugged into AC power instead of running off the battery and click OK
* This will return your netbook to the condition it was in from the manufacturer.

Do you have your windows OD running? If so, make sure that there is NO CD or DVD Disc left in your CD/DVD Combo drive while you are turning your computer ON. Now, eject the CD or DVD and try to start your computer again.

Check you have no CD, DVD or floppy disks in at the time of bootup. If not you need to contact a local Computer Tech to come out and have a look at it for you.

Generally this is an indication that your hard drive has gone bad, and is no longer visible to the computer. If your still under warranty, call Acer for service; if not, either order and replace the Hard Drive, or take it to a local shop, and they should be able to help you.
In this type of situation, chance are that the drive has died in such a manor that you won't be able to recover any data from it, but you could always ask the shop to try.
