Acer Travelmate notebooks do normally have a preinstalled windows and recovery partition.
As far as I can remember, you have to press ALT+F10 to get into the recovery console.
From this point, you can make a fresh install of your windows xp.

NOTE:
You will lose all your data by doing a system recovery. So first of all, backup your data.

If you use system recovery, your windows is legal and valid. You do not need any serial number for the system recovery.

If you're looking for an illegal version of windows, you are not at the right place here.

Anyway, if you'd like to format your harddrive, you do need a windows installation cd and a valid serial number.

If you use such cd, you can choose to format the harddrive at one of the first steps of the installation process.
