Hello there! I purchased an Acer Travelmate C314, bluetooth, XP edition about 3 years ago. I had misplaced an original recovery disc... and in need of a copy. Having difficult time to contact the Acer support, can you assist me to where I can get one? Thanks.

You need the original recovery disks that came with the unit as there is no built in recovery. If you have none then you will need to purchase a copy of windows or contact your regional Acer office whereby you can purchase a new set of original disk (bearing in mind this will be XP as you will not be licensed for any other version).
Your hard drive has a hidden partition that contains the original factory OS and program stored for rescue and recovery.
1 Boot to Windows.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
5 In the Recovery settings window, select Reinstall applications/drivers and
6 Select the desired driver/application and follow the instructions on screen
Note: the recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original
software content that is installed when you purchase your notebook.
You can try ALT+F10 or CTRL+F10 during the initial boot cycle. This should prompt
the laptop to access the recovery partition on the hard drive.
If it doesn't work :
Activate BIOS Setup Utility, press <F2> during POST.
Check the BIOS settings.
a Check to see if "Acer disc-to-disc" function is enabled or not. b Make sure the [Acer D2D Recovery] setting in [Main] is [Enabled]. c Exit the BIOS Setup Utility and save changes. The system will reboot.
