laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you can
restore the computer to factory default (please note that this will erase everything). The hotkey for the
recovery is the ALT+F10 key. After you press the power button, you
need to hold ALT and then simultaneously press the F10 key to start system recovery. Once the recovery menu has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings.
Hidden harddrive or partition are usually alloted for factory restore software.This software will restore your computer to original factory state without using the recovery disk. In order for you to find if you hve one in your computer. All you need to is to go to computer management then go to disk management. The easiest way to get there is by clicking the start menu then type in under start search or run bar this compmgmt.msc then press enter.
You can set your computer back to factory settings. To do so:
Turn Off the computer; now hit the power button,, as soon as you hit the power button press ALT key and then tap F10 key (i.e ALT+F10); this will come up with the recovery screen, select full system restore or Factory restore and follow onscreen instructions.
This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps below to rebuild your C: drive. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option. Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings. 1 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not. 2 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled. 3 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot. Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during POST.
To start the recovery process: 1 Restart the system. 2 While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to enter the recovery process. 3 Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery. Important! This feature occupies 10 GB in a hidden partition on your hard disk.
This is problem with the OS. You have to look for "Acer eRecovery Management" in the start menu and you can restore the computer to factory setting.
The other option is if you have a Windows Disk you can repair the OS.
Let me know if you have any issue.

Note you can download not only the drivers but also the additional Acer utilities for this notebook. I am not familiar with one called eRecovery. If you are going to use as a 'what if', you should download everything into separate folders within a master folder (like C:Acer Drivers) and burn it to CD, as the hard drive might not be accessible at the time of 'what if'.
