sue nicholls, your system can not find the boot disk. You did not tell us which Acer you have, so we can not really give you a good answer. You can try and set your BIOS to boot from USB drive and create a bootdisk on a USB stick to see if it works. I would just try a Live CD from LINUX (I prefer Puppy Linux) and see if that will start your computer ok. Ultimately it sounds like you will have to replace the hard drive/SSD drive (whatever your particular computer has). Hope this helps, good luck.
