ok heres my problem.. i have an acer aspire 6930, originally running vista 64. well my buddy took off vista, as well as all the drivers, and replaced them with xp and a bunch of drivers he found over the web. and xp is not validated now.
well since this happened a couple years back, a lot of the drivers have become incompatible, and completely destroyed themselves, or eachother.
the dvd rom wont read the system disk, or the recovery disks. i went to the acer website and tried to download the factory drivers. i tried changing the BIOS on startup, as well and setting back to default config. ive tried doing a system restore up to 8 months ago, but the drivers were switched out about 2 1/2 years ago, so no luck there.
if there is a different way to completely wipe my system back to original settings and original drivers, thatd be great. but if not, just help me fix my system!
