Answers :

Recovery discs are fairly usless for a complete fresh re-install if you just use them 'as is'

If you can still access the system from F8 safe mode you need to find a folder called i386 its normally located at c:/i386
Once you have found it copy the folder to a blank cd

locate the i386 folder on the disc, then from within that folder look for a file called 'Winnt32.exe'

Run this exe file and you should be able to re-install the OS with a complete format.

You will need your XP serial number.

If by chance you dont have this folder on the HDD anymore, either because you deleted it or it is corrupted by the things you have already tried, then look on your recovery discs, it is unlikey the folder is there though.

You need a working copy of the i386 folder for the recovery discs to work properly anyway. So if you dont have a copy of it, then you will be looking at buying a copy of XP or borrowing a disc that was the same build as you had (the serial number only works on certain builds)
If you can boot go to safe mode using F8, see if you can do system restore from start/programs/accessories/system tools.

If you cannot boot, or system restore does not work you need to reinstall Windows, either using recovery CD from Acer, or generic Windows disk. In last case you will need to reinstall driver after installing windows.
If you do not format hard disk or delete partition, you will be able to recover your data (documents, pictures, music, desktop contacts etc) after installing Windows.

Always better than incinerating your Acer.
