I wrote to Acer myself about this and this is their reply.
The other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts
Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:
“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”
If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.
If you see this:
“Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”
Then it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on your screen after a short pause..
In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.
The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs.
This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine.
If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.

Okay most Dells comes with a recovery partition now if that got wiped you need to contct dell for the image cd's. Fact here is without the cd's you will have to purchase a operating system for this laptop but I would recommend you call del to get the cd's sent out to you now if your still under warranty you can have a hard drive sent out to you with the image on it.
Thanks and please leave positve ratings and feedback for your free answer today.

Jeff what you have to do is this dont disturb yourself just go straight off the system then later on it and press your key F11 down at a time simultaneously then it will bring the system recovering factory settings for you and follow the instructions then you are through is just that all you have on the system will be gone but you will have your system back alive the way it was manufacture to work BYE THANKS
