Question about Acer Aspire 1414 Notebook
When you insert the (WINDOWS) disk, restart the computer and make sure you boot from the CD or DVD, not the hard drive. After it installs and asks if you agree with licensing, you should see 2 options for installing windows. Usually the 1st option says (RECOMMENDED) but in order for a 'clean' install you'll need to check the 2nd box that says ADVANCED. This is the option that allows you to actually restore it back to the way it was. The hard drive will have to be formatted which will clean out your files *** MAKE SURE THAT IS WHAT YOU REALLY WANT*** Those files will be gone for good. I also recommend getting on Youtube and search 'HOW TO FORMAT AND DO A CLEAN INSTALL OF WINDOWS' There are several excellent tutorials that will walk you right through it. It makes it easier if you can actually see what steps they are taking on their computer. I hope this helps! Good luck!
