    Hi
    Sorry its brought a though to respond, we have had few techie trouble on our servers, anyway you will want any version of XP that you can lay down your hands with once you have installed windows then apply our recovery CD to put your drivers factory software and setup rear to the original Acer factory settings. I wish that assists.

    The format process is part of the XP setup, thus if it asks you and you have no vital data to save then say yes to the format, and do a long format as that will as well do a basic hard disk drive assure and map out any bad sectors. The recovery CD restore disk is the one you need
