If you are trying to reinstall the Operating System with the Install CD the check the following:

Ensure that your CD drive is set as the first boot device in your BIOS settings.

Insert the Install CD in the cd drive, and then reboot the computer.

If it asks you to press any key if you to boot from CD, then just do so (ie. push the spacebar).

The Operating System install should then begin.

Since you did not provide any details on what exactly you are trying to install, it is somewhat difficult to provide any additional or more precise directions to solve your problem.

Good luck.

Window Could not seart because the following file is missing or corrupt:\Windows\systems32\config\system

The operating system is corrupted. You'll have to do a fresh install using the disk that came with the laptop, or with a retail Windows disk from a store like Walmart. Sometimes, a computer repair store can get the data off the harddrive first.

I have no Acer Recovery disks My lap top is giving me 5 options Systems Repair - tried this doesnt work Systems Restore - tried this doesnt work Windows Diagnostic Tool - tried that took bout ten mins and...

Could you look at solutions other than running a system restore? What is the initial issue that is requiring you to run the restore?
If you're at the point of needing to run a restore, you do need to get your hands on the discs, I would recommend borrowing the discs from someone else with an Acer, or purchasing them from the manufacturer. Trying to borrow discs from someone might be an issue as Acer no longer provides physical recovery discs, the process is run directly from the laptop and the files are on a partitioned section of the harddrive.

My Gateway computer will not boot up. I

If you have tried to restore from the restore disks, do you know if it formatted the hard drive yet or not?

Once the format begins and you find that there is an error on the discs (can't read or whatever) then the next step is to either do a clean format or order a new set of discs from the mfg and restore from those.

They are not terribly expensive, but you will have all the drivers already on the restore as opposed to a clean install.

Good luck

God Bless

Go to the laptop manufacturer's web site or call the manufacturer directly. They usually have replacement CDs for most laptops. Also, do you know the make and model of the laptop?

My Acer Travel/Mate 2310 keeps running a disc called Fat 32 and suggests serious problems

I will assume that you mean that it is running Checkdisk ( CHKDSK.exe) at startup. this is a tool that will run to check for errors, and bad sectors on you harddrive. depending on how bad /or corruped your system is , you may need to restore your system using the restore cd or restore procedure in you operators manual.
