The Acer Aspire 5742Z laptop appears to come with Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit or 64-bit.

What did you do with that laptop BEFORE the boot failure issue started?

If that laptop is more than 3 - 4 years old and goes through a lot of use, a hard drive replacement may be in order.

Yea, that should work out good, I have tthe same laptop and experienced the same fault last year. I had everything reloaded on a new hd and its working soo good. Quiet expensive at where I am.
