Can you please share a screenshot of what the Acer laptop is showing at the moment? You might need to a smart phone or camera to take this photo as the Windows seems not able to capture a screenshot itself.

I've had $31 deducted from my account and $5.
What is the $31 for?

Hello I am Serge and I will try my best to answer your question

You said it was stuck all day on exactly same percentage?

At this moment you should restart it. Are you doing recovery with CD/DVD by Acer?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I already restarted and it went back to the same screen. Was only resetting it to the original setting from when I bought it. Wasn't aware I needed the CD
Expert:  UranIT replied 2 months ago.

Sometimes you do not need CD, I was just checking. Acer has a recovery partition that you can boot into and start process all over again.

Here is the video by Acer support how to access it and work it:
