are you trying to wipe out all the data for the c and other parition of you computer?,is it running in win xp, vista,?,7?,win 8?
1. you can manually go to computer window right click on each partition and and select format it will prompt more boxes and just click on ok or continue. 2. you can also set your computer back to its defaults by accessing the acer recovery management console, most manufacturer placed pre-installed apps on programs list, but you can also do it a manually be restarting the computer and keep tapping on f6 until you reach the console page 3. you can also use the original disc to restore back to defaults :)
The dvd unit has a lens that is used to read the disks - if this lens is dirty or defective the disks aren't recognized. Clean the lens using a cleaning disk that you can buy at every IT shop. If this doesn't help then you must replace the entire dvd unit - you will have to take your Acer to a repair shop.
make sure disc is clean wash gently with warm soapy water going from middle to outer edge then dry with soft cloth going from middle to outer edge make sure cdrom is set to boot first then put RECOVERY DISC in first when finished put system disc in. hope this helps.
have you checked if your pc is compatible with win7? use this to check it: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/default.aspx
and if it is, try to do a clean install. boot from the cd. insert the disc. restart pc, as soon as it has power, press F12 several times and highlight cd/dvd drive or ODD using your arrow keys then press enter. it will load the cd from there. And that should work fine.
