My acer aspire v5-571-6471 went to update last night. It ran into a problem of some sort told me failure in update and is reverting back to its last functions. I went to bed and when I woke it was on a please wait screen. Been there for 9 hours. I tried alt+f10 to access the recovery partion as I can not get to my login screen. But alt+f10 does nothing. I do not have a windows 8 recovery dick laying around as I just bought the laptop from my sister who also has no recovery dick. Please help. If anyone is nice enough to make a recovery dick iso for usb and allow me to download it I would be grateful. I really don't have the money to go and buy anything at this current time.

The proper word is disc for CD or DVD, not dick. You sound young.

Disc is marked as such on the face of the Optical drive tray.

You can get the Factory Restore discs for Windows 7 from Acer, I did for an Aspire I was given, cost less than $30US, haven't check price for Windows 8 yet.
