    All Acer laptops have a hidden partition that contains a "Ghost" image of the NB, as it was when it left the factory.

    When you invoke the reinstall process you are given a system warning. The warning tells you that ALL data on partition C:\ will be overwritten and returned to factory state. BUT it also tells you that any data on partition D:\ will be safe and not touched.

    So if there is ANY data you would prefer to not have to reinstall from original discs or backup discs ( things like MP3s of picture files - things you may be unable to reproduce again ) it would be wise to transfer them to the D:\ partition BEFORE you invoke the reinstall.

    The reinstall process is very efficient and remarkably quick - it should take not much more than 3 minutes, and all required drivers will be included in the reinstall.

    The only thing you will lose is any system updates or updates to drivers.

    Good luck.
