Since you mention in the other thread that you don't have a recovery CD, you are going to have to order one from Acer or buy a copy of XP from Ebay or other places that still sell them and then download the drivers from Acer's support pages.

Before you do any of this recovery you need to back up any files you want to keep because a factory restore will it back to day 1.


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.

Go to My Computer > Acer and delete all the stuff in the files.
Or just press F6 when you switch your PC on, and it will give you a Re-Boot option and that will sort your Hard Drive wipe and everything else out
