Laptop wont boot

Hi there,can anybody help please.
Acer laptop xp sp2.Yesterday i decided to do a complete restore using acronis,i had the hard drive image stored on dvds.After going through the process of starting the restore,it asked for the disc,as soon as it loaded,the laptop crashed.
It will boot to the acer screen and thats it.
It just sits there with a black screen with a cursor flashing in top left of screen.
I can get into the bios,but changing boot up etc,its still the same.
Any help would be appreciated.
