Having problems with your Acer Aspire 6930-6771 Laptop ?

I would like to reformat my Acer 6930 notebook, but I don't have the actual windows vista CD. I brought the notebook from Tiger Direct and it never came with any CD's. What should I do?


Answers :

If you brought this from Tiger then they should of gave you a copy of windows vista with the unit, Seems it was preinstalled upon purchase. If so then the computer should have a system restore function for reinstalling windows, On some computers after buying the system installs windows itself, but give you and option to make system restore disks, check for this option on your system, look for restore to factory options software.
There is a recovery partition on the drive which has the windows installation files on it.. this partition is hidden so dont bother looking for it..\015\012go into the windows control panel and select the recovery icon.\015\012Otherwise, go to the acer website and search the support area for the correct method of initialising the re-install routines..\015\012DO NOT reformat the drive as you may well delete the recovery information which is an expensive mistake..\015\012The hidden partition may show up in drive manager which is accessed through administrative tools but if you are not sure what to do, stay out of there and consult someone who knows what they are doing..
