So probably back in 2016, my dad was trying to install Norton on my Mum's Acer Aspire Timeline X laptop (running Windows 7), and the Norton was on a disk, but I realised he was installing it on the wrong account so I went to log out and go to the right account when something happened- I don't really remember now, but I do remember that when we tried to turn it on again it came up with a blue screen with a message that said something about it was corrupted. Now this year, 2018, if I turn it on it has the acer start up screen but then it goes to a black screen with just a little white dash in the top left corner (it's not flashing if that helps at all) and if you press any keys it starts to beep. There is stuff on this computer that is really important to me, so I would like to know how to fix this issue without deleting anything if possible. My dad won't let me take it to a repair shop because it's too expensive and he'd rather just trash it, so I thought I'd try fix it myself. That f2 thing works where you can change boot options or whatever on start up. Please help! Thanks so much(y)

Is the hard drive listed as an available boot device in Setup? If no, something is wrong with the hard drive.
