The Acer Aspire 5920 is a PC laptop model that uses Windows Vista. All Acer laptops come equipped with a built-in utility called "eRecovery Management" to create backup CDs. You can choose to create a backup CD of the laptop factory settings only or you may instead backup all of your current files and programs. These "Restore CDs" will come in handy if your Aspire laptop fails to boot or if your PC files become corrupted.
