Resolved Question:

Recently the HDD on my ACER ASPIRE 5680 laptop gave up the ghost and I lost all the info on it.
While it was down I upgraded the memory to 4gb and the hard drive to a 320gb.
Then I installed Windows 7 Pro 32bit.
But I've lost the Acer Empowering Technology, I searched the Internet but can't find any way to replace it.

Where can I get it from.?
