Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?

I have an Acer 3680 laptop and just now it was making with odd kricking noise, like it sounded like it may have been the fan or something. And then a blue screen came up so i shut it down like it told me to now it won't start up it would start up but it wont boot up completely

Hi i'm Rain.
\015\012Ok it sounds like your harddrive may have gave up on you. the blue screen you saw is call THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH { BSOD } This means that there was major failure. This also tells me that it isn't a fan issue.
\015\012Try rebooting the computer and just as it shows any life on the screen push F8 or SHIFT F8 to get to the advance screen. On the advance screen use the arrows on your key board to select > Last known good configuration . Hit Enter and allow the system to attempt boot to Desktop . If this fails you may need to replace the Harddrive .
The noise could have been the read/write mechanism inside the disk-drive grinding against the recording surfaces of the disk-drive.

\015\012So, your best plan:
\015\012* buy a new disk-drive
\015\012* reinstall Windows onto the new disk-drive
\015\012* copy all your "data" files from the old disk-drive to the new disk-drive, and do this *BEFORE* the old disk-drive *COMPLETELY* "dies".
