|If you contact Acer support, they will send you the system and recovery disks for the cost of S&H. Alternatively, there is included on Acer computers, a system/restore utility which does the same things as the disks, if you can get the computer to boot that is. It is usually listed in the Acer folder of the programs menu or in the Acer folder of your c:\program files. The utility will run and allow you to re-install or repair Windows.|
Once you begin the process, you have the option to either repair or re-install windows and the other pre-loaded programs.
