Back up her data then restore to factory new state using the recovery partition. From the ACER Generic UG

Are you talking about your computer or your girlfriends computer?

Really best for her to post her own questions so that nothing is lost via the middle-man.

Try again running Acer Factory Recovery, this time from boot. If it fails see if you can generate the Recovery Disks to run them to restore to factory condition. Acer Support: Frequently Asked Questions list for Recovery media and Restoring a system to factory load

If these fail your options are to Troubleshoot Windows 7 , order Recovery disks from Acer, or Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 following the steps in the link to get a perfect reinstall which include everything you need.
