Hello Madplo.

New Acer, systems haven't come with system restore cd's since late 2005, so the only way (apart from finding someone who will sell you a restore CD from an older system) is to start vista and use acer's eRecovery system to burn yourself a restore DVD.

From within Windows, you can just type restore into the Start menu search box, and you'll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu:

You will immediatly see a screen where you can choose to roll back the system to the last restore point. You can select "Recommended restore", and just click next, or you can choose a different restore point.

If you do choose a different restore point, you will see a list of restore points that you can choose from.

Click one of them, and you will have to confirm and then restart your computer to roll the system back.

Goodluck

Acer Aspire x1300 Desktop/Vista. Ethernet Controller Driv


First thing to try, is to do a system restore. You can go back to an earlier time. Pick the lastest time right before you installed the updates. System restore should be found in the Control Panel.

How to back up windows vista and how to restore if any problem


Click start,all programs, look for Acer folder, you are looking for recovery media creator, have a couple of blank DVD-/+R and follow the instructions to create a restore set, you can only make one set,(until you restore again, then you COULD make another set). This only makes a copy of the factory installed software, it doesn't back up any of your personal data.
To restore, put the 1st disk in, and restart the PC, follow the prompts to boot to CD/DVD and start restore

Reformating


You need to have a windows vista dvd or a recovery/restore cd from Acer. CD-less installation will only work if your computer has a restore image which should be installed in the factory. I dont think acer dekstops have that though.

Just call Acer and ask for a vista dvd or see if you know someone who owns a computer which came with the same version of vista and borrow their dvd.

Missing Vista home basic product number


Acer gives you the option to create your own cd's. Click the start button & go to all programs. Look through the programs installed. Someting like DVD pro. or nero. There is a program in there so you can creat your own set of restore cd's. The reason your PC is so slow is because Acer loaded the system up with a ton a junk you'll never use. (Can always return it). I would befor the warranty runs out.........

Good Luck!

I made a system recovery of Vista, then ran it and it worked, I installed Unix Ubuntu and decided I didn't like it. I went to re-install vista using my system recovery and it failed, do you know how I can...


Hi!

I understand that you had Vista installed on your computer, then installed Ubuntu, decided you didn't like it, and now want to reinstall Vista, but your system recovery disc does not work, correct?

From you description, I presume you did a full install of Ubuntu, which will require a full reinstallation of Vista to restore it. If you still have your original Vista install disc, load it into your CD-ROM drive and follow the prompts to reinstall Windows. If you can't find your install disc, or if you were never provided one, contact Microsoft's customer support and ask them how to get a new one. You can also ask them about getting new system recovery discs, which could also help revive your system.
