Hey gd!

 

What is the make / model of the acer?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Acer Aspire One.
Expert:  Bill the Computer Guy replied 7 years ago.
Ok is there a model # XXXXX product number anywhere on the underside?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Model KAV10

also, on sticker on back, it reads: aspire one D150-1577

i'd be willing to do a formatting and reloading of windows xp (wasn't much on the laptop so don't mind starting over), but this doesn't have cd drive and i don't have a flash drive that would facilitiate booting and loading xp just yet.

Ok that's an AOD150.

 

You can restore the OS from the "hidden drive".
