Any computer software store will have Windows Vista for sale. If you don't have any stores close to you try ordering from a reputable online software dealer. Your version of Vista will cease to work after 30 or 60 days if not activated. You may be able to buy the copy of Vista you have on your computer if you go back to the site your husband downloaded from.

Hi there,

you will need to purchase the key code from windows, you can do this on the windows website.

downloading a copy is not the best option, go and buy it from a store, then you get your key code and the disc if it ever fails in the future.

Suddenly my computer is shut down i dont know how but when i try to restart its not working so i download window 7 then i restrart but when i buy my computer its window vista so i want same like before...

Kanwalpreet, you can go to Microsoft solutions web site for vista and with a little searching you can download vista fully onto you computer. Although I don't know why you would want to do so since you have Windows 7, because the technical name for vista is Windows 6, so you have already upgraded your system. Well to each his own, good luck .

Restore to factory default

Unlike other laptops, Acer notebook/laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer Aspire 4315 to factory setting.

Step 1: Before starting your Acer Aspire 4315 laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer one to original factory settings.

Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer Aspire 4315 is reset to factory settings.

Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your notebook data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.

If you face any issue with your Acer Aspire 4315 Notebook/Laptops/Desktop, feel free to get expert technical assistance at

I can't download vista

You shouldn't 'download' an operating system because it most likely will be an illegal copy. If you need a new copy, your computer's manufacturer will usually send you a recovery disc set that includes all the software that originally came with your computer for about $15, or you can contact Microsoft. If you can find someone to lend you a copy of their Windows, you can legally install it as long as you use YOUR Windows key and it's the same operating system. Good luck!

I can't turn my laptop on.whenever i try to turn it on, i'm to face a problem.A wizerd appears & wants me to put a new vista ultimate license code. i don't know what to do. plz help me out.

Does the Wizard indicate a "New" code is needed. I would just put in the code you originally used and let it go... If windows will NOT accept it, and it is a legit copy, Call the microsoft activation hot-line, they can help you activate it, they helped me when I exceed the amount of times I could Install XP, when I was using XP.

Make sure that you installed both the driver and a bluetooth manager software like : Bluesoleil ( or Widcomm. Windows Vista has an In-Built manager while Vista doesn't have so you have to manually install one. If you dont know how to contact me at any time.

Window cd

The windows vista DVD that you have is an OEM and not a retail windows vista copy. If your friends computer is a non dell system, you would not be able to install it on his computer in the first place. If its a dell computer purchased before 2007 , it will not install.
In all other conditions it would install without any problems
