I have the COA on the laptop, but can't find the recovery CD.

Any help greatly appreciated.

I have an OEM MCE set of discs (2) I can provide if this helps you. All you need to do is to donwload the drivers and you are back to factory settings. Unless you want the original discs with all the bloatware that goes with them too?

This outfit simply provide the drivers for systems and not the restore cds as you would find them when you opened the box for the first time.

Most acers have a recovery partition. If you hit F11 or ALT and F11 on bootup you might be able to access this partition and reinstall the OS. If the recovery partition is not available but is still physically there (as in you have not fdisked the drive completely) then you might be able to make it active via software like PTEdit32, in which case you can restore from it then. Failing that, a simple OEM install of MCE and the associated drivers is the next best thing.

Would definately take Simon up on this OP.

You will have a much better running system by doing a clean install without the bloat, newest drivers and no manipulation of the OS.

Just looking at that driver cd in the link above and its £9.95 believe it or not, for drivers you can get off the Acer website. Unbelieveable.

Call it £5 to cover a dvd or two and delivery.

For that I will provide a set of COPIED XP MCE 2005 OEM discs, which you can use to install MCE2005 on your machine, BUT you will have to insert your OWN CD Key for installation to complete.
I will also provide a CD with the Aspire 3690 drivers on it if you want, saves you downloading them etc.

Let me know
