*** Remove any external monitor as it will make entry into BIOS utility and recovery process difficult. ***
The following is from pages 29-30 of the 52-page D250 UserGuide.pdf located in folder C:\Book
I want to restore my computer to its original settings without recovery CDs.
This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps below to rebuild your C: drive. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option.
Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.
1. Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.
2. Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.
3. Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.
Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press during POST (Power On Self Test).
To start the recovery process:
1. Restart the system.
2. While the Acer logo is showing, press + at the same time to enter recovery process.
3. Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.
Important! This feature occupies 6 GB in a hidden partition on your hard disk.

I assume you are getting this error when trying to alt+F10 to put the machine to factory original.
If you can boot into windows, try to use the acer e-recovery software to create some restore media, although it sounds like the image stored in the restore partition may be damaged. If making the discs doesn't fix it, call Acer and get some restore media sent to you (free if you're in warranty) or about $50 if out of warranty. You can also reinstall windows with an OEM cd/dvd using the keycode on the bottom of the laptop, but you will have to download drivers manually and will lose some software provided by acer. Acer restore discs are the best/easiest option though. Well worth the cost of discs if you can afford it. Let me know if this helps or not. I am an Acer authorized technician.
