How to Boot to Recover an Acer Aspire

Updated February 21, 2017

Booting an Acer Aspire laptop computer into the recovery console will allow you to perform a reinstall of your operating system. This may be required if you start to receive errors on your computer that you can't seem to correct, or if your computer has been overtaken by a virus or other type of malware. Booting your Acer Aspire into the recovery console is something that must be done before Windows has a chance to load.
