just boot from your backup disk. it will guide you to reload the Operating system (factory default).
FYI, if you haven't delete the recovery partition, you can use alt+f10 to reload. just press alt+f10 during boot.

SOURCE: DVD DL Doesn't Work
Go in to the device manager and look at what is listed for your DVD burner. It should give you a make and model of the burner itself, or at least a model. Look this up on Google and see if the drive really is a dual burner or not.
The specs that I pulled for the Acer 5100 states 'dual-layer' as well, but who knows, it is possible someone didn't assemble the laptop properly. In that case, I would exchange it for a replacement if at all possible.
If you look up the make/model of the DVD burner and it is infact not dual layer, and you are unable to return/exchange the laptop, then you may have to invest in one yourself.
If the make/model does show it as dual-layer, then it may be a software issue. I don't know what version of Nero you are using, but you could test the DL capabilities with a free cd burning utility called CDBurnerXP.
To get to the control panel in Windows XP, click on "Start" right click on "My Computer", go to "Properties" then click the "Device Manager" tab then click the "Device Manager" button.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Laptop with Choppy Video
First of all you're running vista, which is a major no-no. Since your RAM is only 2 gigs, vista will take up about 1.3-1.5 gigs of ram, depending on which version you have.As for the video card i really do not see a problem. Try updating your drivers, i would suggest Driver Genius Professional Edition, as for free editions google them. Hope this helps. I'm not as good at laptops, so bare with me.

Follow these instructions carefully:
To start the recovery process:
1. Restart the system.
2. While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to
enter the recovery process.
3. Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.
I copied the above from an Acer manual, and it works on my own system, which is not the same model as yours. But you must understand that this will basically restore your computer to the condition in which it was when you bought it, unpacked it from the box, and followed the instructions to set up a new computer.
This will give you your system back as if it were brandy new, but in most cases, anything you created, like DOCs, or XLS files, again … ANYthing you created since buying this computer, will also probably not be there any more.
You will have a pristine, clean as new, computer system.
Be careful, be absolutely sure this is what you want to do, and go ahead and do it.
