If so, then those other two choices are a possibility.
If you do a clean install, you will need a valid 25-character Product Key.
Back up your personal data in any case.
Thank you for your speedy rely!
What would be the difference between a clean reinstall and a restore to factory specifications (ie. What advantages might that add?)
I don't know if I have an Acer recovery partition or recovery disks, so I wouldn't know how to go about doing that. And I did purchase my laptop so I'm pretty sure I have a valid 25-character product key on a sticker on it somewhere.
