The original operating system system for this laptop, an Acer Aspire One, Model No. ZG5, is not working. How do I get a copy of its original operating system to reinstall?Thanks

You might start by checking out the Acer support site. Or you could contact Acer's technical support.
As an alternative, you could try installing the netbook edition of Ubuntu.
There are many linux alternatives for netbooks:

There are many others that may work fine as well.

And welcome to the LQ forums!
