Re: Need to restore
Your best bet would either be the manufacturer, or E BAY, you might have a third option by contacting the software company and down loading it into another computer then burn you a disk of the program.

Looks like you need to install Windows from scratch. You need a Windows installation CD and the product installation code. After Windows is installed you need to install the Acer Aspire 1650 device drivers. If you cannot connect to the Internet then you need a computer that has Internet access to download the device drivers and install them on your Acer.
Download the device drivers from the Acer WEB site. Makesure you select the model of your laptop the drivers you that require thatmatches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link toget to the Acer support: - http://www.acersupport.com/drivers_download.aspx
The notebook cannot boot up because the operating system could not be found. This can be caused be a faulty hard drive or it may be as simple as re-seating the hard drive so it makes proper connection. If you are keen on removing and re-seating the hard drive and since you are not "a computer person" I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you or take the notebook to your friendly computer repair shop. If the hard drive is faulty then to get the notebook working again, the faulty hard drive needs replacing, Windows to be installed on the new hard drive, plus the notebook's device drivers and your programs need to be installed and finally the Windows Update files.
Most likely this is due to a read error from the installation media. This could be either due to a scratched CD/DVD, or dirty CD/DVD drive's lens. Try using another unscratched installation CD/DVD. If this did not help, then try cleaning the CD/DVD drive's lens before attempting the installation.
If neither works, it might be related to a defective memory module.
Hard drive has bad sectors on it which is why its giving you that message even though you can go thru the restore. Normally going thru the system cd and then the recovery cd should bring you into windows with the device drivers installed.
To be honest I would backup all of the data you need on the laptop and reinstall the operating system from scratch before doing anything else - make sure you have the disks for drivers and applications you will need before starting this! If you need more help post a comment.
I presume you want to restore your computer back to the original state when you first purchased the computer. If you have a Recovery CD then you can boot up with this CD to start the restore process. If you have lost this CD then :- Contact ASUS to purchase a Recovery CD for your model laptop. The other way is to do a new Windows install. Use a Windows installation CD; it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop. You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the ASUS WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the drivers which matches the Windows version you are installing.
I would say that you put the first on in the drive and boot the computer from the CD. Then follow the directions. That is how it usually works. On some computers, there is a utility in the start menu that is for that computer--recovery utilities that you start up and follow the directions, but I'd go with the former option if I were you.
if you haven't deleted recovery partition, you can use alt+F10 during boot (before you go to windows).
if you have deleted recovery parition, (i hope you already created recovery cd/dvd when you first get the unit), you can restored using cd, just boot from recovery cd/dvd
