Sadly, you can't just download a system restore disk.
Some computers these days have a secret system restore partition, I read that you need to press ALT+F10 to access it, but I can't confirm if that is correct. Try pressing that combination just before you usually get the message.
If the laptop is still under warranty, you probably want to contact Acer.
I decided to check the Acer website (http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/webpage.cfm?siteid=7293&areaid=7&website=AcerPanAm.com/us) and it appears you can buy a new recovery CD, so I guess there may not be a free solution..

System recovery boot


The Acer Aspire line of netbooks have two methods to restore the computer to a working state: System Restore, an application included with Windows, or Acer eRecovery Management, a proprietary application that is packaged with Acer PCs.

If errors appear when running Windows, or if the computer begins to behave strangely, first run System Restore to determine whether reverting the PC to a previous state fixes the problem.
If the problem remains unresolved, or worsens, you can use Acer eRecovery Management to format the hard drive and reload the Acer Aspire netbook to its factory state.

Navigate to the "Start" menu. Select the "Control Panel."
Type "restore" into the Search box.
Press "Enter" then select "Restore Your Computer to an Earlier Time" from below the "Action Center."
Click "Open System Restore."
Click "Next" on the "Restore System Files and Settings" screen.


Select a restore point that was created when the computer was functioning properly. Click "Next," then click "Finish."
Click "Yes" to confirm.
Windows will perform a system recovery on the Acer Aspire One.

Acer eRecovery Management

Turn on the Acer netbook. Hold down the "Alt" and "F10" buttons simultaneously on the boot screen to load Acer eRecovery Management from the recovery partition.


Select "Restore Operating System to Factory Defaults" from the options.


Click "Next" to recover the system to its original state.

When I boot my Acer 9410, it comes up with a message that the eDataSecurity loader failed. The system then becomes unusable as it does not load and run any other programs.


You need to enter into safe mode.
Your going to go to control panel , remove uninstall acer edata security.

You should download this registry cleaner,its free,unless you have one.

Go to system restore and make sure its on.

Run cleaner and clean the registry of errors.

Then you go to the next link I posted, look through the list for your operating system and download the updated edata security.

Keep getting the following message when I turn on my Acer Aspire 5050 laptop: PXE-E61: Media test faulire, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM Operating System not found


PXE bootup means the computer does not boot up from an operating system installed on a hard disk drive. PXE bootup uses a server on a network to boot up the computer.

It will not start without being connected the network that it was programmed to run on

I assume from the question that you want to restore your computer to factory default - like the day you bought it. Warning - this process will wipe out all you data unless you back it up to an external drive or DVD.

If windows is running you can start it by going to Programs, Acer Empowering Technology and run the Acer eRecovery Management. Note that on the bottom of the eRecovery Management window are 3 choices, Backup, Burn Disk and Restore. Click on Restore. Here you have the choice of selecting Restore System to Factory Default.

If windows is not working but the system boots -
Reboot the system and when the Acer logo appears, hold down the ALT key and press F10. This starts the recovery process, just follow the instructions.
