Answers :

You havn't mentioned whether Ubantu inquired about the grub settings during its installation or not. If Windows doesn't have the boot loader than you can manually check it by looking at the boot flag set at a particular partition. This can be done by using an open source media GParted live cd, which can be used by booting from your CD Drive and then you can check and also set the boot flags at a particular partition. You can find it here:\015\012LiveCD-Download-8864.html">http://linux.softpedia.com/progDownload/GParted-LiveCD-Download-8864.html\015\012After burning, boot from it and in the GParted menu set the boot flag for the Ubantu partition, then you can use your your Ubantu, only if installed correctly, may be you can't use windows at that time, then remove the boot flag and windows will be back. Try installing Ubantu again and check the settings for grub bootloader.

I bought an Acer 5542 computer three months ago and had not created a back-up disk. I had also declined from registering with Acer.

F8 does not do anything, nor does alt-F10. Within 5 seconds of starting the word GRUB appears (as part of the GRUB loader) and then the PC restarts, and goes into a continuous loop. I
