You might try this. If it doesn't work, you may have to purchase a recovery CD. It is supposed to come with one.

This is from the Acer website:

Re-install bundled software without CD
Acer e-recovery Management stores pre-loaded software internally for easy
driver and application re-installation.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer e-recovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer e-recovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 In the Recovery settings window, select Reinstall applications/drivers and
click Next.
6 Select the desired driver/application and follow the instructions on screen
to re-install.
At first launch, Acer e-recovery Management prepares all the needed software
and may take few seconds to bring up the software content window.

Why acer aspire one d255 run so slow, shut down so slow


System recovery is only really needed if you have malware infections that can't be removed by anti-malware programs or if you've had your computer for years and never bothered to clear out the rubbish that accumulates over time. If you clean your computer and scan for malware regularly (once a week for both) then you should be able to delay having to use System Recovery. I use my computer A LOT and use System Recovery about every 2 years.
Here are some links for cleaning software and anti-malware that are all excellent products and totally free :

1/. http://www.piriform.com/CCLEANER
Run cleaner then registry - fix issues

2/. http://advanced-systemcare.en.softonic.com/download
Run deep care cleaner, then open Toolbox and run Ram cleaner deep scan, then minimise. Get to know the toolbox, it does some amazing things.

3/. http://download.cnet.com/Auslogics-Disk-Defrag/3000-2094_4-10567503.html?part=dl-6267754&subj=dl&tag=button
Analyse your hard drive then defragment & optimise.

4/. http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button
Run scan for malware and follow instructions if any is discovered.

If you use the 2 cleaners and the malware scanner once a week your system will function well. The cleaners take a few minutes & the malware scanner about 30 mins.
You should only need to use the defrag once a month. This takes about 30 mins.

If you've used these and there is no major improvement then System Recovery is your only option.
Don't forget to reload all of these tool after System Recovery and use them regularly as I've recommended & you will keep your computer running really well.

I hope this helps.

Spyware Protection screens keep popping up; saying that the computer is infected with different Trogans and viruses....and also requesting that you activate Spyware Protection to protect your computer. ...


Take note of the exact message you are getting and, preferably on a different computer, enter that message in a search window inside of quotes. The message you are getting is FROM the Trojan; you are already infected and you will need instructions on the removal. Entering the precise message will most likely identify the specific Trojan you have. Worst case, you may have to format your hard drive and re-install the operating system.

Popups of spyware will not stop coming up


You should back up your files (good idea to do this anyways) and then use the built in Acer Restore Program.

It's important to wipe your system clean any ways as part of normal system maintanance.

If you don't want to go that route then download

spybot

it's free and is very effective in cleaning off spyware from your computer.

If you have any more questions, let me know.

My acer Aspire 3680 notebook has no sound


You might just need to go to your computer manufacturer's website and update your drivers. Try this; if this doesn't work, try doing a system restore. If your system restore fails, then try reformatting your hard drive and then reinstalling your operating system.

Acer aspire 3680 could not load dvd driver


Let me guess...you tried to install Roxio or another burner, and then it did not work, so you uninstalled it, but now your dvd drive has disappeared. You have tried to update the drivers, but you get a message showing that you have the latest driver, but alas, no dvd drive.

Use the restore point created just prior to installing the burner software and you will be fine. I have fixed 5 Acer 3680 laptops in the last two weeks with this problem. If you want to use Roxio or another burner software, go to the Acer webpage and link from them. Peace and good luck.
