Chances are, the drivers installed may not be the correct one that matches the components of your system. If you still have Windows 7, check Device Manager to see which device are not installed properly, then look for the correct Win 7 drivers for thos devices from Acer. If in case there are not Win 7 drivers for some devices, try to look for Win vista compatible drivers as they will usually work for Win 7 as well. Hope this helps and your rating/comment if this helps would be appreciated

If you reinstall windows using System Recovery Disk then you do not need to worry about anything, it will
bring your computer back to the factory settings. However, if you use Windows DVD to reinstall the system then you need to install all the drivers manually.
If your drivers are missing then download it form your manufacturers website.

If you are using win XP

Brand new acer aspire won't load windows xp


If you can still get into the BIOS, see if you have an option for D2D recovery. if so, make sure it is enabled.

restart the system and hold down Alt+f10. if your recovery partition is still intact, this should start a factory reload of your system.

Recovery For ACER 3660


If you have recovery disk try starting them from Windows, or start computer with disk inside and chose 'boot from cd'.
After booting from recovery disc chose complete recovery.
Save a backup of your data, as complete recovery may delete the data.
If recovery disk does not work you will have to install Windows from a generic Windows setup disk, in this case refer to manual for how to.

Here is the user manual, check from page 82
