Hi, and thanks for using

Unfortunately, Acer/Gateway or any computer company does not allow you to download the recovery software. But please try the following: you can click on Start, All programs, then Acer/Gateway/recovery/etc and check if there is the recovery program.

If that does not work, you can turn off the Acer/Gateway computer, then turn it on and press at the same time the two keys Alt and F10 when the computer logo appears on the screen in order to do a factory restore.

Please let me know if there is still any issue later. Thank you.

Sorry, since both of the options do not work, then you need to purchase the recovery disk; it's not expensive about $29.
; if acer/gateway does not have the disk for your model, you can get at

Thank you.
