Acer is a shit brand. Never buy an Acer
One of my friends has this Acer Aspire X5900 and honestly? Its shit. First of all, it comes installed with a copy of Windows 7 that is “not genuine”. I do know that in order to fix it, if all else fails (trust me, I have done all else) one has to re-format the whole computer. But this is where the penny drops. If you want to re-install it, you need the install discs. Now most manufacturers do not give you the Windows operating system install discs except for a couple like HP and Dell. And even then, you have to request for it and they will sell it to you for a small additional fee. But Acer? Absolutely not. When called to rectify it, this is how the conversation came about:
Me: So can we buy the re-install operating system discs?
Acer: No. But we can send a technician over to fix it (telling me what the technician is going to do)
Me: I have already tried that. Your solutions do not work.
Acer: Then we will have to re-format the PC
Me: Thanks very much. I do not need Acer to do that for I can do that myself!
There was nothing heard from Acer after that. So trust me, do not buy an Acer computer. Technical support is like shit and they give you solutions that will not help.
