I bought this netbook back around Christmas of '12.. In spring of '13 the screen got smashed. I had a student at the nearby university recover my data from this device and another that was having significant virus troubles. I finally purchased a new screen for my acer but now I get an error every time I turn it on. Alt+F10 do nothing. I've played around with the functions under F2 and nothing changes. I don't have easy access to acomputer to download a new os and Acer wants me to pay $20 for one when I spent $250 on the laptop and $40 on a new screen. I just want my netbook back!
I've tried to load setup defaults. I don' know how to remove and reinstall the hdd. I also dont't know how to find out if my harddrive is on the first boot. I'm not totally incompetent but I do have some small computer knowledge. Can y'all walk me through it?
