The only way I get restore disks to go to the vendor and get it from them or download from vendor also, normally they its free, or search the internet and download if you have access to another PC - possibly from a friend or library. Hope this will help.

How do i restore my acer aspire v5 471p apps and shortcuts not responding

If you are able to open the Start menu, you can type "recovery" in the search field and try to run the Acer Recovery Management software. If you are not able to run any app AND you have made an USB Recovery disk, you can restore the OS by booting from this USB disk - plug it to the USB socket, restart the computer, tap the F12 key on a BIOS screen, then select the USB disk to boot from. After booting from an USB drive, you can select what type of restoration you need (quick or complete).
If you have not made an USB Recovery drive, it is only one method available: reinstalling the OS from an external CD/DVD disc.

Hello Dean

In Ideal scenarios your Restore Disks should work even if you have the Vista on the computer.
I hope you are using the right steps in order to perform that restore as you need to boot up using the disk 1.

Another step you can do is to Reinstall the XP using a disk(Which you may borrow from someone) after formating the harddrive, however you will have to reinstall all the software programs and the drivers as well.

Hope this helps.
