What is the pre-installed windows version 8 on my acer aspire V3 - 571G?

I have an acer aspire V3 - 571G, unfortunately, I lost my hard = active operating system disc

I found a way to get the serial number of the bios, but I need to know the version of operating system, I installed windows 8 pro but he would not accept the activation code... so can you please help me?

If this isn't Pro, he is very probably Windows 8 (Core). This is the standard edition of windows 8 and is called only (Basic) to distinguish it from the OS itself.

UPDATE: after checking on support.acer.com, it's appears the newest operating system for your computer is: 8.1 Windows 64-bit

    How to get Vista recovery Media and/or to use the Vista recovery Partition on your computer.

    There is no Vista free download legal available.


    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.


    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

  • Can I use the product key to my Home Premium pre installed windows 7 64-bit OS that are in my label of windows laptop back?

    I downloaded the iso file of windows 7 Home premium 64-bit. can I use the product key to my Home Premium pre installed windows 7 64-bit OS that are in my label of windows laptop back...

    Original title: the Windows 7 product key

    Yes you can. To learn more:


    If your computer is pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Premium, you should have a recovery if partition:

    New computers coming often pre-installed with Windows 7 have what is called a recovery partition. This is used to reinstall an operating system in the case of a system failure. To access it, you need to start when you start your computer by pressing a function key. This can be either F1, F2, F9, F10, F11, F12 key DEL or tab. See the manual that came with your PC for instructions on how to reinstall Windows.

    This is how the recovery partition is accessible to most popular brands...

    For Dell, press CTRL + F11 directly after switching on the device

    For HP, press F11 directly after switching on the device

    For LG, press F11 directly after switching on the device

    For Toshiba, press and hold "0" BEFORE and during the power upward

    For Acer, press and hold ALT + F10, as soon as you see the logo

    For Asus, press F9, as soon as you see the Asus logo.

    For Samsung, press F4 to the power upward...

    For Fujitsu, press the F8 key directly after the power

    Advent, restart your computer. Then, press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting system recovery"

    Sony VAIO, reboot and press "F8" or "F10" repeatedly until the screen "Advanced Boot Options".


    If the recovery partition is damaged or does not, you can then use the downloaded Home Premium as an alternative.

  • What is the difference between Windows 7 OEM and the retail version of Windows 7?

    Can someone tell me, what is the difference between windows 7 OEM and sales vs retail?

    On Thu, 20 Sep 2012 19:56:47 + 0000, STEVE-5 says:

    Can someone tell me, what is the difference between windows 7 OEM and sales vs retail?

    There is no difference in the product itself.

    Although if you get a generic OEM full version, it contains the
    even software, it has the following disadvantages compared to the
    commercial version:

    1. the biggest drawback of an OEM version (at least in the USA) is
    that its license it permanently binds to the first computer, it is
    installed on. He can never legally be moved to another computer, sold,
    or given (except with the original computer). If the computer
    dies or is stolen, your license dies with him.

    2. he can't do a clean install, not an upgrade.

    3 Microsoft offers no support for OEM versions. You cannot call their
    with a problem, but rather to secure the necessary support of your
    OEM; who take in charge may go anywhere between property and non-existent. Or
    You can get support elsewhere, like in these forums.

    When I bought my laptop, there was a pre installed windows 7 on it with the product key.

    Unfortunately I lost my recovery DVDs as I can't do any other DVD recovery because of a problem with windows.

    Microsoft provides no support for pre-installed OS.  You must obtain from the computer manufacturer.

  • Computer with pre installed windows 7 no longer work after Windows installation 10


    A few months ago, my son ordered a computer with Windows 7 pre-installed. He installed Windows 10 such as recommended with the message 'free upgrade'. Unfortunately, now the computer does not work at all and the computer doesn't seem to have a possibility of recovery (at least we cannot find it).

    In addition, the computer manufacturer does not meet one of e-mails and calls from some time. What can we do to recover his computer with Windows 7 or Windows 10 (I don't like which version of Windows)? Windows setup does not work 10 from scratch, the product key has not been accepted, probably because there is only a product key for a pre installed windows 7.

    Help, please!

    Kind regards

    With Windows XP Professional X 64 expire, what is the replacement? Windows 8 not compatible.

    With Windows XP Professional X 64 expire, what is the replacement? Windows 8 not compatible.

    Windows XP 64-bit is one of those odd elements that does not quite fit in.  It is based on the code of Windows Server (hence why it only goes back to the SP2 not SP3 as Windows XP did) so it is - upgrade (for purchase in any case) options are limited.  Frankly - Windows XP 64-bit is one of these products, most people should have just skipped (in my opinion) - and with this in mind - the replacement for those running it should be to get Windows Vista 64 bit or Windows 7 64-bit or 64-bit Windows 8.  It there just will be no discount to do on monetary incentive plan.

    My suggestion - if your system is good enough, compatible, etc. and you actually * needed * to upgrade (it's not like YOU all just because Microsoft will stop their support extended to it in 2014 - big deal?)  Download Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and clean install.  You can use the free Windows XP (32 bit) MOU to run many older programs, you have * if * you have one that cannot be run under Windows 7 or with the compatibility mode.
    In addition - get an unknown computer (for you).  You can find a lease one or something with Windows 7 64-bit, probably for the same amount you'd pay for a version non - OEM Windows 7, pay a little more and you'll probably have a machine that could handle Windows 8 - If you wish.  ;-)

  • Any who save a pre-installed Windows xp home edition that crashed...

    My cousin had this pre-installed windows xp that the computer crashed recently, keep prompting
    for a recovery disc for repair, but this machine is pre-installed with a windows xp. Now to make
    the store that sold this machine went crashing too worse question. So what can he do to recover the
    computer? Thank you.

    Hi Daniel,.

    Thanks for bearing with me, now the recovery disc creator, is anyway I can enter the first hard disk.
    Or maybe some software I can download from microsoft? OOP! Sorry I ask, who cares about repair or
    maintenance of software, we sell only. Anyway, is that the recovery disk creator is something like the recovery console?
    I'm treating this horse dead as a direct. Anything radical might be considered.

    Question: How can I format the hard drive?

    Here are the different ways to reinstall Vista

    Contact the manufacturer of the laptop computer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

    they do it for a nominal cost of $


    also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

    you would normally press F8, F9, F10 or F11 or Alt + F10 or 0 to start to start the recovery process according to the manufacturer

    Ask them of the exact key sequence
