If you want us to be able to help you we need to have some more
information. Describe the beep that it does when you turn it on.
What else does it do when you turn it on? Also, if you're trying
to boot from a DVD you have to select it to boot from the disc
drive, not the harddrive. Since it's an Acer you need to press
F12, I believe. Would be on the first screen that flashes when you
turn it on and be called Boot Order, Multiple Boot, or something
of that nature.

I am also facing the same problem. Is it a hardware problem? Which hardware is the most likely cause?
