Hi.

I got a Acer with Windows Vista by a friend of mine, who got a new PC. The problem is just, the computer is quite slow, so I wanted to know if it's possible to reinstall windows/factory reset it without the CD?

IF it ain't possible to reinstall windows/factory reset it without an CD, does any of you know how I could make the computer faster?

Thanks.

Note: If your computer did not come with a Recovery CD or System CD, please use Acer eRecovery Management's Backup factory default to CD/DVD feature to burn a backup image to CD or DVD. To ensure the best results when recovering your system using a CD or Acer eRecovery Management, detach all peripherals (except the external Acer ODD, if your computer has one), including your Acer ezDock.


IOW, use the installed "Acer eRecovery Management" software to backup the factory recovery to CD/DVD(s). Then boot the computer from the first CD/DVD and follow the onscreen instructions to restore the original factory image. (Just like it was when it was brand new).

Of course doing this will erase everything currently on the computer.
