    Press Alt-F10 after you reboot it / boot it up. If that doesn't work if its got a recovery partition remove the hdd and see if there are any ISO's on it. If there's one there, burn it / them

    Umm did you try removing the hdd and putting it in another system? To see if there's a partition / ISO on it?? What CPU is in it? AMD/Intel?

    I would give Acer a ring, see what they say. If there's no ISO on it
