Start from a cold start, tap F8 repeatedly through the splash screen. This should bring up a startup option. Select the recovery option. This will work only if you have a recovery partition still on your computer. If not, you'll only have access to limited options; restore, troubleshooter, and a few others...

That all depends on how much preparation you do before hand and how much experience you have installing operating systems and resolving issues that come up. Things to look out for: -Have all the hardware drivers on a readable CD. The manufacturers original CD is best. -Do a test boot to the install CD just to make sure it works. -Make sure you have a legitimate Windows software key. There should be a Microsoft sticker with the key printed on it. -Keys can only be used to install the operating system three times. If you purchased this new you should be OK, if its used the previous owner may have already reformatted a couple of times so be prepared to spend time on the phone with Microsoft. -Do this somewhere where you have access to a broad band connection so you can download the updates and patches. -Remember to pull your data, shortcuts and passwords off the hard drive before you format. -Make sure you document the software you have currently installed. Make sure you have the installation CD and the license key to reinstall them. -Some manufacturers like to create a special partition for diagnostic utilities. Make sure you don?t delete that unless you know what you?re doing. -Allow for plenty of time, it takes about an hour and a half to two hours for a pro to save data, format, reinstall and update software. If this is your first time it may take you a evening if nothing goes wrong. Bottom line is you don?t want to be doing this if you have any major projects, taxes or anything else coming up soon. Good luck.

Before you start doing anything you should download your drivers from acer's web site. Save them on a cd or a flash drive. Once you put your operating system CD (xp, vista, 98, 2000 doesn't really matter) restart your laptop. It will prompt you with "press any key to start from CD" and you press enter or space bar. This will take you to setup screen. The setup will ask you what you want to do. Repair, or install. You need to select install. Next will be the partition setup. If you want to divide your hard drive two seperate pieces in example you have 80 G hard drive and you can set it up as C drive 40 G and D drive 40 G, you need to do it in this section. If not just follow the instructions. It'll also ask you if you want to delete the partition, I would suggest to delete it. It'll give you a fresh start. Then it'll tell you if you delet the partition you will loose all the documents in your hard drive which is your goal anyways. After you delete the partition it will format the hard drive (it has to) and will install all your operating system components. When its done this is what you need to do. Right click on my computer and click on properties. On the general tab click on device manager. When device manager opens up you will see some hardware devices with a yellow question mark beside it. Those are the ones that you need to install drivers for. That's why we wanted to create that driver CD or Flash drive. Once you intall the necessary driver, you are good to go. If you have any questions let me know, I'll walk you through.

So you really don't want to format and must have your data's. May i ask you one thing,have you ever created an system restore point...if so you can do the trick. Hw to acess System restore=> start->All programs->Accessories->system tools.And this actually roll-back to your good configuration setting,by this you won't loss any data's....but make sure you do it safe.Do not need to fear that it will damage the OS.Please try on.Click the below links for further deatils:
