Question about Dell Computers & Internet
The lap top wont come back on, it says to insert the cd for vista os but i didnt recieve any when i bought it
This indicates that the boot process on the hard drive got damaged. If you did not get a CD with the laptop then you will need to find someone with the CD so that you can re-install.

If Acer screwed up fixing your problem the first time (and it's evident that they did) they are obligated to fix it a second time, and if they cant, they are obligated to replace your laptop.

You need to have an XP OS disk and if you already have it then:
insert it in CD/DVd drive
then restart your Laptop
once you see black screen then you can seen there
so you need to press enter before it crosses 5 seconds.
once you hit enter it takes you to next screen (blue)
do nothing until you see Agreement page once you see the page
then hit F8 to accept agreement and follow the instructions shown on screen.
once you reach formating page now choose one option which you want to do then formate it.
once your formate is completed the primary files will be copied in to your drive and once it done your system will be restarted.
but this time let 5 seconds pass (do not hit any key just keep watich until it crosses 5 seconds)
now your OS installation begins and it takes about 39 minutes.
you may be asked to choose language during installaton for just choose whatever language you want and you will be prompted for product key so keep ready your product key.
Note: if your system does not automatically detect the CD or DVD then you need to setup Boot from CD first On BIOS.
how to do it?
Reboot your mechine press the key which you see on screen (Mostly, F2 , F9, F10 and F12) and once you reach on Bios mode then select the boot device options and select Boot from CD as First (generally Boot from HDD is setup as first so) and once you are done with it just save changes (F10) to exit and reboot the system (this time i will detect automatically your OS disk).
Good Luck and vote all questions.

Just a possibility but have you tried downloading this from the manufacturers website this being Dell? If not then try that to see if it works.

SOURCE: how to reformat my lap top?
to reformat your laptop completely, you must have the operating system cd placed in the cdrom of your computer... once you are done, restart the computer.... press f2 o f10 or del key to enter into bios setup.... change the first boot device to cd/dvd... save changes.... the computer wil restart and read the cd.... setup process to install the OS will begin.... during the process it will ask you to format the hard drive... select NTFS quick format option and continue with installation.... once installation is complete, you need to install drivers for your computer seperately.... you can download the drivers from internet.... if you have any clarification please comment back, i will surely assist you....
