Acer Inc, normally known as "Acer", is a computer hardware and electronics company whose headquarters is in Xizhi, New Taipei City, Taiwan. Acer was founded in 1976 by Stan Shih and his wife Carolyn Yeh, along with a group of five other investers known as Multitech with an initial investment of $25000. In 1981, the company was re-branded with the name "Acer Inc." Their first successful product was known as the "Microprofessor" which allowed them to jump start their business.
The Acer laptop family includes the Acer One, Aspire, Cloudbook, Aspire, Extensa, Ferrari, Predator,Switch and TravelMate.
The Acer desktop PC family includes the AcerPower, Aspire, easyStore, Extensa, Predator and Veriton.
From around 2009 most manufacturers, including Acer, shipped all their desktop PCs, laptops and notebooks with the operating system recovery saved on a partition on the hard drive. This caused some major headaches for customers who wanted to upgrade their hard disk or even had to replace their hard disk drive due to a failure. Moreover approximately one in every 200 hard disks drives become faulty within the first 24 months of use, due to mistreatment or accidents. Because of this issue Zoftar Software developed a new customized Acer compatible recovery system. This process was developed so that the user could easily and legally re-install their Acer computer with a valid new operating system using an up-to-date clean recovery disk.

How To Boot From Your Windows® Recovery Disk
The computer will need to be powered up with the Acer recovery CD all ready in the optical device. Once the system is turned on with the disk in the drive, it should go directly to the start up screen. If however the computer still tries to boot the installed hard disk based operating system, it will need to be set-up to boot from disk. The same method also applies if you are re-installing your Acer using a USB drive. Please see the videos below regarding how to make sure your Acer computer is to set-up to boot from the optical device.

How to re-install your drivers after the Windows® re-install
After you have re-installed the operating system, hardware like your graphics sound and networking will not be functioning correctly. This is because the operating system would of set-up the Acer with a default or generic set of Windows® drivers that are designed only to operate at minimal levels. A driver is defined as the communication software that interfaces or "drives" the computer's specific hardware.
Some form of device driver is required for the hardware to operate in any way at all. Windows® default drivers are designed so that that basic Acer start-up requirements are met, such as being able to see the display. In cases where the computer is using a default display driver, you will not even be able to see the full screen resolution. Our custom Acer driver disk is one of the most versatile ever released. We think that a driver disk full of compressed, out of date and hard to install driver files is just not good enough. This driver disk will supply you with all the very latest Acer device drivers available. Once the disk has automatically set-up your network drivers, and if you have internet connectivity, the system will then also update, replace and remove any old or broken device drivers.
Just put the disk into the optical device computer once the operating system is running and the driver disk will do the rest.
