✔ Best Answer
Try this: https://www.reference.com/technolog...

Note: ideally you should have made a set of recovery discs when you first bought your laptop, using the Acer eRecovery > Create recovery discs utility which is pre-installed on many recent eMachines laptops.

That's important because when the hard drive fails, those discs are the only way to restore the factory installation to a new hard drive.

Without those discs you'd have to buy Windows again for a new hard drive, but then you've got a bigger problem since Windows 7 isn't available now and your laptop model might not support a later Windows version.

Therefore, when you've managed to recover your laptop to it's factory Windows installation I strongly advise you to make a set of recovery discs and keep them somewhere safe.

Completely shutdown your computer, restart & repeatedly tap the F11 key.

Another note:::
You can use a Windows 7 Repair Disk to do a Start Up Repair or a System Restore from outside of a working Windows 7 system and get it running again.
You should have made the Repair Disk when the machine was new. If you did not make it already you can make one from any working Windows 7 machine as long as both machines are either 32bit or both 64bit. If you made a System Disk Image you can use the Repair Disk to reimage your drive as well. These are important because you end up keeping all of your settings, programs, as well as files. Of course, if you have a bad infection, it may not help (though a longer roll back system restore might give you the ability to clean out the system).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
