I have a Acer Aspire 5517 windows 7 laptop and can't get access to anything. When I turn it on it shows at the top of the screen Windows Boot Manager. And that's every time I turn on the laptop. I need help in restoring it to its original factory setting. I don't have a recovery disk because it was bought from a Rent to Own company
I would download an ISO image of Windows 7 of the same version that you are using from HERE and then burn to a DVD or make a USB installer with THIS tool and instructions. You can then do a complete Windows 7 re-installation and then load the drivers obtained from ACER SUPPORT. Then you can activate your Windows using the key on the sticker on your computer.
