I did post another comment since that first one with the $199 question, and hope that you got that.

Since then, I did a little research on pricing, and there appear to be few alternatives to the $199. The only instances where the pricing was lower appear to be either original or SP1 versions, which would require substantially more time on your part to update. So, I think it is a choice between reverting using the restore CD, or unfortunately paying the $199. In either case, I would recommend doing a full backup of at least your data files, and any other software that you may not have handy, just in case something goes wrong with the solution. Best of luck!

If OFFICE MAX won't supply a CD, or give you any other technical support, as part of the "warranty" that they offered when you purchased the computer, you might be able to telephone the manufacturer of the PC, and order a set of "System Restore" CD/DVD disks.

Or, if your computer still is running Windows, there should a utility program that you can run, in order to "burn" your own set of "System Restore" disks.

When you first turn it on, do you see any message like "Press <BLAH> to change boot-order" or "Press <BLAH> to run System Recovery" ? If so, then press the <BLAH> key, to see if your computer has a "hidden" area that can be used to "restore" your computer to its "factory" settings.

Vista crack

I'm sorry but Fixya does not provide cracked licenses of any software. Please try to understand that using such licenses is illegal. Software piracy is punishable by law so avoid yourself getting into trouble by buying you own genuine vista license. Besides, having a genuine license allows you to windows update your vista to the latest patch, fixes and security updates.

How do I restore Acer4520 to original specs and erase memory?

If the hard drive has not been formatted,you can do an eRecovery from the recovery partition. Instructions are on this link:

If the hard drive has been changed or reformatted,borrow cd from a Friend and re-install XP, using the license that should be on the bottom of the laptop. Then you can download the drivers from Acer's website.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

No, in terms of being ethical it means just removing the XP installation from the machine for which you do not have an appropriate license. Off course you run the risk on your own if not doing so, but you do not need to call.

Hello - not certain if you received this information, as it was posted on the primary page...

Do you have a backup from before the upgrade was done? Or, in the alternative, do you have the original CD / restore CD that came with your PC?

What is $199 for? If you had a valid license for the program, there should be a way for us to find a solution without purchasing it again. It may mean a call to Microsoft...

Unfortunately you cannot "Uninstall an Upgrade" - Do you refer "Upgrade to SP2/ SP3 or WIN98 or WIN2000 to WIN XP? Please clarify? Regardless - you will have to reformat your PC and purchase a new license key as you have used the one on another PC or you should void the license on that PC and use it on the original PC.
In short unless you do not use the license key or purchase a new one, your PC will not log-in after 30 days and you will then have to activate again using telephonic assitance (if you modem and internet connection were no configured before the end of you activation period. There is now Un-install function. Sorry.
