For most Vista machines, start it up and keep pressing F8. Choose to "Repair My Computer". On the screens that will ultimately come up you should have an option to recover the system, it's typically the bottom entry on the screen.

Hello, usually in a Acer System there are installed Acer Recovery Management software. If you run this program you can restore your system to factory default or only restore drivers.
Don't forget to back up all data in c:

Hard Disk Recovery should be enabled by default. If it is not, you may need to go into your system’s BIOS by hitting F2 at boot and enable it under the Advanced tab.

Once Hard Disk Recovery is enabled, restart the system and hit ALT+F10. This will begin the Aspire system recovery process. You will be prompted to type six zeros as a security step. Type 000000 to proceed.

You will then see a screen to select your Operating System
. Do this and hit enter and the recovery process will begin.

:) This will format your system losing all data on the hd and return the system to factory settings :)
