I recently had to have my hard drive reformatted, and lost all my applications, I have recovered most of the important ones, but I went to play a dvd and it didn't work, I think I had cyberlink power dvd originally, how do I go about putting it back on, or finding an equivalent one. I went to cyberlink's web site, but they wanted 50 odd dollars for it.

Suggestions welcome.

Regards. :whistling:

Power DVD might be on your recovery CD, if it's not you may be able to download it from the Acer website.

You might also want to consider using the latest VLC Media Player or Windows Media Player to play you DVD's

Make sure you have all the latest Windows updates and the latest updates for your security software as well.

thanks for that,
with regard to the recovery disks, is there a way of just loading the necessary bits and not recovering the whole thing? havent used them before...

I'm not too familar with Acer recovery disks but you could have a look around the disk in case there's a powerdvd folder or something like that.
