    The laptop most likley has a recover partition, you usually access it by pressing the right key combinatin at bootup and then you can select to restore computer to factory.

    If it does not have a recovery partition. You will need to get a windows 7 disk of the same version a what is on the coputer (Home premium, pro, etc) and the correct 32bit or 64bit. Then you can reinstall windows. You wil also need to download the drivers from Acer's website if you go this route.
  3. Yes it is
  4. While you will need an internet connection to activate windows it is irrelevant to your issue.
