The best way to see if the recovery files still exist is to hit f5 (or whatever the proper function key is) when you boot it up. If the files exist, it will take you to the recovery sector and you should be able to restore it. If not, your best bet would be to contact acer if it is still under warranty.

Boot and hold F2 instantly. when it bios opens, scrowl thru and make sure you RESTORE function is enabled.
The manual should tell you exactly what the proper key is to use the RESTORE partition. Normally F-12. or use the eRecovery key. on the laptop.... e is the symbol. Other wise you can download the same edition of OS (normally) free and install using the COA Key on the bottom sticker... Aspire One Laptops - use a USB or buy an external DVD reader. Honestly the 4GB USB is cheaper, and faster..
