UNfortunately, you are SOL, becuase the eRecovery partition is gone. There are NO restore cds.

you can find all the drivers and such on the UK FTP.

Best I can come up with is to contact them via the 1-800# on this page... Contact us

They normally will sell you a set of recovery disks for $50 or so.

Most times they don't provide a physical disk. You have to burn it yourself.

You'll most likely have to just call them like sswilson said. At our store you can bring your laptop in, but it cost $60 for us to do the recovery with our giant binder of recovery discs. (contains almost every model), or if you call acer, they usually send you them for $50 cdn.
