So I have an Acer Aspire SA80, and I want to reformat.

My problem though, is that it's been nearly five years since I bought my computer and I am scared that I've lost one of the system restore disks that come with it, coz there's more than one, and I think I HAVE to use these discs, because I don't have Windows XP on disc.

So, what I'd like to know is...

How many recovery CD's come with it?

I've got "Disk 1 - System CD", "Disk 2 XP Home SP2 - Recovery CD", "Disk 3 XP Home SP2 - Recovery CD" and "Disk 4 X Home SP2 - Recovery CD"

Am I missing any?

I tried googling but had no luck, and I can't ask the Acer Website because I has the dumb and can't see a Serial Number on my system box and it won't let me submit a question.


Please help Laughing

I'm going to ring Acer and try ask them but I've only got 20 minutes for my coffee break so I may not get hold of them in that time, haha.
