If disks didn't come with it, there may be a hidden recovery partition on it. If it has one, you can access it by hitting f5 or some other function key when you first turn the computer on.

i agree with that about the hidden recovery partition on it... sometimes hitting f5 or some other function key will not work...i strongly suggest that you go to www.support.acer.com and order the recovery software..only about 22 dollars.i think that it isa worth a try concidering that a hard drive may cost 4 times that amount...if you dont want to gamble on it, then wait a little while...i have already ordered my recovery disk.....wait for my results please,...
