My daughters laptop, Acer Aspire 5742Z, will not boot up when switched on. It emits a high pitched imtermitent beep. I did manage to get it on once by holding my finger on the switch but got the message urlmon.dll is missing from this computer. How can I find/install this file as Windows 7 was pre installed and she does not have the installation disc.

If you get into Safe Mode the first thing you could try is a System Restore - look for a restore point just prior to when the problem occurred.
