does anyone have an acer?

am i right in saying we need to burn our own restore disc as we didnt get one with it?

how would one go about doing that?

Give us the make and model of Acer and we`ll let you know. Also let us know how old it is. Acer commonly asks you to burn a set of recovery Cd`s or one DVD as part of the original installation routine.

You do, they even supply a blank DVD. I did mine when it asked on first starting.

You can email them here

You need to have a blank DVD-R and then look in Start>All Programs for Acer Management. I forget exactly which program it is but one of them allows you to make a Recovery DVD - Perhaps Bugle can give you the exact name.

I believe you can only do this once so I suggest you immediately make a second copy of the DVD and give it to someone else as a backup copy. Preferably a relative not in the same household in case of a disaster!

Normally EVERY time you reboot a reminder box pops up unless someone ticks a box that says don`t remind me again!

umm nope... i thought when it installed i chose to create a cd- but nothing happened...

For reference, my neighbour has just bought this laptop and wants me to help set it up when it is delivered.
