I turned on my Aspire 7520 and got this message,
Info: An error ocurred while attempting to load boot configuration data.
FILE: \BOOT\BCD
STATUS:0x000000f.
Insert your Windows installation disc and restart.
I do not have a disc-can anyone help me?

Can you try a System Restore (RS) from the Command Prompt? If yes:

For Vista: click here

For XP: click here

If no joy with the above click here - do NOT attempt a full recovery without first backing up if necessary. G

Operating system?

It looks like faulty files caused by a failing hard drive.

Vista or W7 you need to try a startup repair. and then run the disk chking tools

XP boot to recovery console and run chkdsk /r

if it won't boot after that then do a repair install.

You could try creating a Bootable CD from this then boot with it to find the problem. click here
