If this is a school notebook, call the schools technical staff for help.

The restore partition for that model should be ALT + F10 not just F10.

You can check with ACER support or get a restore disk set from them. That model probably does not have an external drive you'll either have to get an external DVD player or make a USB boot disk from the disks they send.

You can also download the Windows 7 ISO disks to make a clean USB boot setup for Windows and instal the drivers manually. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/window...
