Hi shotta-101,

Most ACER computers have a recovery partition or disc that is bundled with the PC that can automatically do the job for you. I would suggest that you read the manual of your computer first or contact ACER support so that you will know how to do this function, since it would be a lot faster to just restore your computer to factory defaults than doing a clean reinstall. Sometimes you just need to press a certain button or key on the keyboard in order to run this function.

If you still want to do a clean reinstall of Windows, you can check out these guide to help you. If you're installing Windows XP Pro/Home SP2 you can you this guide:

If you're installing Windows Vista Basic/Home Premium, here is a guide to follow (this can also be applicable with other versions of Vista):

http://vistahomepremium.windowsreinstall.com/upgrade/upgradetovista.htm

After that you still need to install the drivers and programs for your ACER desktop PC using the discs that came with the PC.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Risk of losing data by re-booting CD-ROM recovery disk


Copy off your data to another computer before recovering. A recovery usually restores to factory settings and loses all data.
You could boot to Ubuntu or Linux and copy your stuff that way, then when restored, copy it back.

Tip

Tuneup utilities prefetch data deleted windows 7 slow


Basically, the prefetcher is a Windows component that speeds up the boot process and start times of programs by prefetching data.

I recommend you never delete the prefetch data.

If you or another program delete prefetch data or the folder, this can slow the computer down until the prefetch data is rebuilt. Windows rebuilds this each time on reboot and during program start ups.

If you are using a cleanup utility, turn off any options that delete prefetch data. In CCleaner, this option is unchecked automatically. TuneUp 10 does not have an option for prefetch data and does not seem to delete this data. You may receive a message when using the program that states, "prefetch data deleted" which is informing you the prefetch is empty.

Photos deleted


If you haven't done anything to the card since you deleted/formatted, then you may be able to recover at least some of the pictures. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.

I managed to erase al my songs / track by expanding the back-up file on my pc. Can I recover these data in any way?


You need an application to recover your deleted files.

Some of these data recovery applications are free and does not cost you a dime.

Others you will have to purchase.

Here is a YouTube video that show you how to recover your deleted files.
