  1. Depends on how you install Win7. If you just installed on top of Vista and didn't change the partition table. You should be able to boot into recovery mode and then reload the preinstalled images from one of the System partition created by Acer. Your User's Manual should a section for that.

    If you did removed all the partition, then you have to find a the origianl CD and start from there.

    YMMV. HTH.

    When did you buy it and from whom?

    That system looks like it was eligible for a free Windows 7 upgrade. How do you know it was not legit?
