System Reinstall

Can anyone precisely explain how to reinstall your system? I know how to do it, but it's my first time, so I'm affraid I will mess up something, OK?

Hmmm... To reinstall it, meaning to factory reset it? You'd have to follow your computer's manufacturer's instructions for that. If you want to reinstall Windows, you'd have to buy a license key and follow Microsoft's instructions.

EDIT: Just found this:

Use the key on your COA to activate windows after your install.

Getting a copy of Win 7 is no problem, but you can not use it unless you have a Product Key. That means you have to buy a copy of Win 7 which comes with a Product Key.

Or use the key from the COA sticker.

If this is for the Acer in your specs, then download and burn to DVD or flash stick the latest official installer for your licensed version on the COA sticker, make sure the Product Key is readable to use it to do a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Stick with the tools and methods in the tutorial and you'll get and keep a perfect install to the extent you do.

Feel free to ask back any questions on how to do the steps. Remain focused on doing them.
