Hello Kyra_: :)

Do you know if laptop has Restore/Recovery Partition. What is exact model name and the installed OS? Please be advised restoring will delete all your personal data/information and installed programs

On my Acer laptop, I boot from the first (of three) factory restore DVDs it ask me to make. I think it was called eRecovery.

I found the following a while back while searching on recoveries. I can not confirm if it works.

Please be advised restoring will delete all your personal data/information and installed programs

Being a Acer system there should be a recovery partition on your hard drive. If there is no data you want to keep you may try the steps below.
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.

FWIW, [Alt]+[F10] does not work on an Acer Aspire AS3810T-8737. You have to boot from the eRecovery discs it ask you to make. (Start > All Programs > Acer > Acer eRecovery Management).
