Hi,
\015\012\015\012 
\015\012\015\012Most computers shipped prior\015\012to Mid 2004 do not have the restore partition (called PC restore). To check if\015\012you computer does have the restore partition, Right-click on “My computer”\015\012select “Manage”, on the left of “Computer Management” window click on “Disk\015\012Management” . On the right bottom, if you see three partitions (the third one\015\012without a drive letter) then you have the restore partition.
\015\012\015\012 
\015\012\015\012The following two steps will work only if you have the\015\012PC restore partition / OR if you have not reinstalled the operating system\015\012previously.
\015\012\015\012To get into the PC restore (if\015\012you have it) hold down <control> + tap F11, when the computer turns on, I,e\015\012after the Dell logo.
\015\012\015\012The second and simpler option\015\012(if you can login to the computer) is to download, save and run the following file\015\012http://tech.atjolie.com/BOOT_DSR.EXE\015\012. The will restore the computer in the PC restore option.
\015\012\015\012 
\015\012\015\012If both these do not work,\015\012reinstallation using the Win XP cd is the only option
\015\012\015\012 
\015\012\015\012Hope this helps. Please rate\015\012your feedback!
\015\012\015\012Thanks,

I have an ACER notebook Aspire 4920 and, I think, because an update I installed (prompted I may add by my laptop!) it is now not working.

It then gives me the options to either: System Restore (not actually an option as when I go on it it tells me I can't do this!), Windows Complete PC restore (which i can't do as have no Backup), Windows Memory restore, or command prompt.

My computer got a virus and I couldn't get rid of it so I ran disk check. It came up with about 600 corrupted files which it then deleted or tried to fix.

I don't have my recovery disks because I am in the middle of a move and they're packed and the instructions for using F8 to access recovery partition don't do anything.
