    Does the laptop not have a CD drive?

    If yes, then you can boot it using the recovery disc and it should guide you in the recovery.

You have to reinstall the OS by using that disk again ..just boot from CD , and follow the procedure can also put on a new OS ..from a boot-able CD ..any OS you like ...and recover drivers from the manufacturer site or let me know the model and the operating system you intend and I will provide links for download the necessary drivers be clear ...boot the laptop...and press del to enter bios for selecting the boot can also try first to see if the order isnt already selected and the pc will recognize3 and boot from cd ..when present this case all you have to do is to confirm the intention by pressing any key when it asks ...after that the recovery will take place as it should...same with a clean install from a windows boot-able disk ..xp .or vista at your choice ..but do not forget have the drivers first ...

I need the recovery disks for my acer 5670

Although it will be difficult to get yourself a recovery disc, all of the stuff that is present on the disc such as software and drivers are usually on Acer's support website. I've linked the Acer 5670 Drivers and Software page to this post. You can get all the software that was present on the recovery disc from here.

I losted my operation system, so I installed a windwon 7, now I want get my old opreation system back which is homevista, cani get it bac now?

When you first bought your PC or laptop, you would have been prompted by Windows Vista to create recovery discs, either CD or DVD. If you did this and still have the discs then you can simply put the recover disc into your DVD drive and re-boot the PC from the DVD drive (you may need to change the boot options in the BIOS or via a function key at boot-up).
If you did not create any recovery discs then there is a small possibility that there is a recovery partition on the hard drive. During boot-up, look at the text on the screen that tells you which button to press to get into the BIOS setup utility. There may be an option to start the recovery process, which would access the recovery partition.
If you have not got the recovery discs or a recovery partition then you will need a Windows Vista Home installation disc. The product key should be on a label on your PC or laptop.

My laptop is acer4810t and i want it's recovery cd

hi if your pc has crashed you will have to create one from another acer pc then use to repair your pc I will suggest that you do a fresh OS installation then when that is complete then create your recovery disc remember when you run a recovery the data and software will still be be lost on the boot drive that is why it is important to do multi partioning on setup so that your data is stored seperately from the boot drive good luck

I have an Acer Apsire 6930 and a few weeks ago the screen went black and the computer will not boot. I ordered and received the recovery discs from ACER, but the computer won't even boot/run from the...

Most probably the intergrated Graphic on the mainboard of your Laptop is faulty. Too bad, you have to replace it from ACER or any authorised Vendors.
If the cost is too expensive to repair, get a new Laptop/notebook.

The recovery cds will make your laptop as it is when you bought it or how they sold it to you, before using the recovery cds, take a backup of your data files on a external hard disk, pendrive or CD/DVD. then use the recovery cd.

Dont use the recovery cds, unless you dont have another choice.
