I can't access anything at boot. I can only access the BIOS and Acer eRecovery.

this happens at boot after the Acer logo appears:http://gabrielecaracciolo.com/blog/w...ootManager.jpg
I just found this at the internet, and that's exactly what's happening at my laptop right now. But I am currently using someone else's laptop to communicate.

Press F12 for BIOS Menu, or reset the BIOS to CD/DVD boot first.

Oh, I now I remember. I have to enable F12 boot menu option first at the BIOS. Sorry, I forgot.
After F12, what now?

I inserted the CD in the Drive, and it started to load the files. Then System Recovery started.
System Recovery stated that it found problems with my computer's startup options. Should I repair and restart right now?
If I repair it, will I lose my programs and other files?

Yes.
Startup Repair
Note: You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.

If I were to attempt repairing my laptop through acer's eRecovery, will it be able to repair it or not? or does eRecovery only restores my laptop to its factory default settings just like Startup Repair

Acer eRecovery only Reinstalls to factory default settings, will lose all your data.
