Re: resource cd for aspire 4315 laptop PC
As long as you have the information backed up that you need you can install just Vista. When you do the Vista install you will just format the drive. Formatting the drive will erase everything on the hard drive. Then the installation will keep going and install a fresh copy of the Vista with the resource DVD. I said DVD, because Vista is usually on a DVD. Vista is a very large O.S...
Now if the Vista Disk has upgrade written on it, you will have to install it over the Windows XP. You do this by inserting the disk while Windows XP is running to get it to work.

As of the moment there is no driver support for the Acer Aspire 4315. If you have already installed Windows 7 and you can connect to a cable internet through your Ethernet Port, you can try downloading and install Driver Genius Professional which can assist you in getting the compatible driver. Since this software can detect even unknown devices.
other laptops, Acer notebook/laptops integrate a computer management utility
called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data,
create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer Aspire 4315 to factory setting.
Before starting your Acer Aspire 4315 laptop, ensure that there is no
external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.
Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.
Step 3:When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.
Step 4: Again click 'Next' to
reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard
disk and reset your Acer one to original factory settings.
Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer Aspire 4315 is reset to factory settings.
Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your notebook data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.
