ive just bought a new pc with windows 7 preloaded - got nothing withit jsut the base until mouse and keyboard - no disks etc.

How to i back up my windows 7 incase it all goes wrong and needs to be reformatted.
Ive been told in the past that when you buy a pc althoguht it comes preloaded you should also get the operationg disk - no so!

i have no idea what my licence number is etc as all i had to do was turn it on register my name and away we went.

shoudl i contact Acer and ask them as the store i bought it from only tell me the item come sin from supplier pre packed and sealed and they have no idea what is in the box - althoguht he did say they dont usually come with the operating disk. But i know you can buy windows 7 to put on a pc - so why when we pay all this money for a new machine does it only come preloaded wiothut the origional disk.
Does anyone know how i would go about getting a copy of the disk?or somehow backing up what is on my pc- mind you i have already transfered stuff form my old pc onto here if that makes adifference.
thanks
Linny

There should also be a hologram sticker on or near the rear of the unit with your Windows 7 license key printed on it (record that for future reference).

cheers for that!
all done now. that could explain why i had 3 blank disks in with the warrnety book which was all that was included really with this system other than and quick how to register guide.
Nothing explaining anything about windows 7 or how it works or how it differs to other opperating systems.
I will now go out and buy some dvds so i can do the same on my other sons acer which is now 2 yrs old. Did not know that this facility was included.
So thanks hadmad you have bene a great help this morning
