    Unless your laptop came with a backup CD,you will have to gain a recovery disk to complete the install.

    Have you checked your "User Accounts" profile for the Administrators Account.You can delete the Administrators Account thru your own account as long as your account has Administrator privileges.

    Control Panel>User Accounts

My acer travemate 7720 keeps powering off without any warning

To me that sounds like it is getting hot somehow, like the heat sink is blocked with lint. The fan might be burnt out...Next time listen for the fan to come on...and find the vents where hot air should be comming out..and see if that is happening...If the fan is comming on and it is blocked up(from the inside) it still will overheat, meaning you would have to disasble the laptop to remove the lint from the heatsink.

Have you tried powering it up without any periferals?? take out the RAM, HDD, WIFI, CD, etc... I've seen a BAD wireless network card preventing the system to power up... if it seams to power up than put back stuff in one by one starting with the RAM to see what periferal is causing the problem... If not than it could be the CPU...

Good Luck!

White screen on Acer Travelmate 7720

most likely you have a faulty LCD screen, the only option u have is to replaced it or u can use a external LCD screen to act as screen for your laptop. you'll be needing a VGA cable to connect your laptop to any LCD screen available.
