    Sounds right to me, computers these days have partitions on the hard drive that store a copy of the factory install so you can reinstall the OS without needing a disc.

    Although it is a lot easier to tell a person to get a windows install disc than it is to explain how to use the recovery partition. (If the computer has one)

    Maybe, but if it gives a date option then it'll just restore it to that point.

    When you start up your computer you should get the Acer logo appear. I'm not sure with acer but at the top of bottom is text which says something along the lines of [f3] for system boot etc one of them should be system restore. Some laptops have this feature....others don't
