Acer Recovery Discs

A Century United

Firewalking for HD
Jan 26, 2007
Firstly, for the mods, I am not asking for anything illegal - I have the licence for the disks I need and all the software on them.

I have an Acer Aspire laptop, 7520 series, and the hard drive has crashed. It is supposed to be possible to recover from this using the "hidden" recovery partition, but when I try the laptop gets as far as the first splash screen and then hangs. Does anyone have one of these and can they make me the recovery DVD's? I have been on to Acer, and they want to charge me £50 to send them to me in two weeks time from Germany. I am happy to pay for them, but £50 for software I have already bought is just a joke


NEVER EVER BUY AN ACER! This has to be the worst laptop I have ever bought, and very nearly the worst thing full stop. I have had nothing but trouble with it, and the "technical support" and "repairs" they offer are risible. The design is simply not fit for purpose - the touch pad for the screen pointer is so shallow and badly positioned that even they admit that it is almost impossible to touch type without brushing it and moving your cursor to some random part of the document to the extent I had to buy a wireless keyboard to use it, and the DC jack is so vulnerable that I have had to have three new power supply plugs in just over a year. The build quality is pathetic - eg keys fall off and try getting them replaced! Frankly I would rather go to PC world, and that is saying something!!!
