Question about Acer Aspire M1201 Athlon X2 320 Gb PC Desktop
Most modern home PCs & laptops built in the last 4 years or so have a separate section of the hard drive loaded with the software to reinstall the system. It requires pushing a key or keys in a special sequence during start up. As this is different between PC brands, consult the support site of the PC manufacturer or the if it came with paper documentation, it may be in that.
If the internal hard drive has failed then you won't be able to access the section containing the reinstall software. I this case the manufacturer can provide you with reinstall disks for a nominal price. Replace the bad hard drive. Many manufactures will require the model of the system and serial number as the reinstall disk is specific to that particular model. Failure to provide this information may cause the reinstall process to fail.
PLEASE NOTE: Running an installation on a system will cause all data on the drive to be wiped. Make sure to back up or recover data prior to any reinstallation. Data is things such as documents, pictures, save files, email and the things PC users generate during the use of the PC.
