This is the problem that all "pre-made" laptops, desktops have. Is that when the day comes you need to reload everything you can't b/c you never "owned" the OS to begin with. You will have to go out to the store and purchase vista with a cd and start from there.

Or you can call up the manufacture of your laptop and maybe they could hook you up with a reload cd but I doubt it.

If you still have the recovery discs, just insert that, and reboot the computer. Make sure it's set to boot from cd first in bios.

If not, then you can try ALT+F10 or CTRL+F10 during the initial boot cycle - this will prompt the laptop to access the recovery partition on the hard drive.

I want to reboot my acer aspire 5315. but i dnt hav the disc or anything. hav do i do it?

I think you mean restore to manufacturer Installation? Acer normally carries a e-recovery partition of which you need to press Ctrl+F12 to start it at the boot screen.(Where it says Acer on first turn on.) continuously press it until the recovery screen comes on and follow the instructions.

If your just rebooting the pc because of a shutting down issue where it is taking long to turn off, you might want to run some registry cleaning software or possibly try repairing windows.

Booting problems with acer laptop - no operating system found??

well ur msg clearly states operating system not found.
for this u hav to install ur OS again.
As ur sister has a branded machine u must hav got a Operating System CD-ROM with it for backup.(in ur case it must be vista)

if u hav the cdrom then turn ur system on just put the cdrom into the drive and let it do what follows.
It may ask u abt where to install ur OS(means which partition)
just select the desired partition and many other simple questions which u can easily answer incase u hav any problem I am always there.
