sometimes they have a hidden partition which saves an image of all your original settings

while booting up, hold ALT + F10

this should bring up the system restore option

You should have Acer e-Recovery Management installed on your laptop (look in your start menu list) - part of that contains "Restore & Recovery" which will allow you to restore to "Factory Default Image"
