problem signature reals corrupt file & CHKDSK shows corruption...

My 8 month old (64 bit) Acer laptop will not come up to a menu screen. I turn it on and it goes to Startup Repair screen. It searchs for problems, but then tells me it cant repair computer automatically.
I know very little about computers, but after a little research I am sharing the information below in hopes that some kind person can provide insight. Stupidly I had not Backed Up in quite a while and I cant get to a recovery point. Nor was I originally supplied with a CD. While computer dumb, I am pretty good at following tutorials.
..... Any and all help much appreciated!

The type of the file system is NTFS
The volume is in use by another process. Chkdsk

Sounds like this might be your only choice

Switch on the laptop power
Start Acer eRecovery by hold the “Alt” key and press the “F10″ key
simultaneously while white ACER BIOS screen appear
Once Acer eRecovery has loaded, click on “Restore to Factory Default
Settings” and Click “OK” to continue
Now, the all data at the C: drive will be update and Acer eRecovery
process will restore a fully functional factory image in approximately
10 minutes.
Finish this step by press OK button to reboot your Acer laptop.
