Recovery Disks are a set of disks that contain the Windows Operating System, applications and other tools specific to your computer. If you do not have them, you should try and order a new set before they are no longer offered.
Why You Need Acer Recovery Disks
Most computers from major manufacturers will not ship with a Windows Install disk. Instead, they put the Windows Operating System on a disk that contains other software by Acer that automates setup and makes it easy for a consumer to revert your laptop back to factory condition. The recovery disks also contain device drivers, which is software that controls specific hardware in your computer. If you only had a Windows install disk, you would not have drivers and would not be able to get on the Internet or control your sound and video. Therefore, these Acer recovery disks are essential.
You will need Acer recovery disks if:
- Your computer is drastically infected with viruses.
