Before "you take it in"… perhaps try to recover/save your personal files etc. first?

As Riider warns you - a factory reset/restore will erase all your personal files etc.. so wise to save them first (if possible).

Download an Ubuntu (Linux variant) ISO. Save it and burn to a DVD; boot your Acer with that DVD. Ubuntu is a freebie - "out there".

ubuntu.com

Providing your Acer does boot into Ubuntu/Linux… you can then access the files etc. and copy to external media (typically DVD). check they are accessible on a working system and then put somewhere safe…

"Then…" go on with options to rebuild/repair your Acer.

Please post the model & model number of your Acer.

Is the recovery partition on the hard drive still intact? If it is, try reinstalling from the HDD rather than the disks. And be warned - you will most likely lose all your personal data & any software that was installed since the PC or laptop was brand new.

Have been able to boot via Ubuntu and looks like files have been saved....is there anything beside the BACKUP file that needs to be saved unto another CD?
