Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop

1 Answer

Slow 5 MINS TO BOOT FROM FACTORY DEFAULT?

Often (after a factory default recovery) we suffer very slow bootup times on the ACER 5633
During the bootup the Laptop seems to hang for a while on the customer (press F2 to enter setup) `ACER` customer screen. the progress bar would be about 60% then, reverts to black screen, with about 3-4 minutes before login screen appears.
If I change the `Quiet Boot` option in BIOS to disabled, I get the summary screen instead with a long pause between text regarding ATAPI CD-ROM and Mouse Initialized. This pause equates to about the same period of time if the Customer Screen is displayed.
Now I know something is holding the PC to ransom during the bootup, but I wish I knew what it was so as to either disable or delete the offending program/task so that I can use the Laptop straight away, instead of having to put a kettel on everytime for a brew, just waiting for the login screen to appear?
If this is a simple fix, I'd really appreciate some advice or to where to look, as I have'nt seen any mention of this condition anywhere on the web so far.
My only way to clear this is to factory reset the Laptop (Ctrl+Alt+F10)
many thanks in advance

I would suggest booting into Safe Mode with networking (do this by pressing F8 during boot. Just tap it every few seconds until you get the OS selection menu). Once you enter Safe Mode, go to www.gmer.net and download their removal tool. You may have what's called a Rootkit trojan. Those can stay in your system's memory even after a factory default reset.

Please save any files or photo,s that you may have on your laptop ist


Then you could try this method without using the disks

Click Acer Recovery Management

Click the Restore button on the bottom of the dialog box that opens

Click Restore System to Factory Default

Click Yes in the warning dialog box which asks if you wish to continue the recovery process

Click yes Start to restore the computer to the default factory settings

Sometimes there is a default acer password which is quite often 000000 that is 6 zero's


or place the recovery disk into your cd

then follow on screen instructions


many thanks

I need to know how to reset my acer aspire 6930 to factory settings!!!!!


A slightly different model requires pressing Alt+F10 at the start up and following the prompts. This will wipe the hard drive though, so back up everything important first. You can probably still get the data even if it doesn't boot Windows.

I need to reset my acer aspire 5520 to factory settings without recovery discs


Hi,

There is a recovery console on your HDD (Hard Disk Drive) this is a hidden partition on your HDD. If you power on your laptop and hold the ALT key and keep tapping the F10 key while it posts to the acer logo screen it will goto a black screen with a flashing cursor on the top left then stop tapping F10 and remove your finger from the ALT key, you will then see windows loading files. This will take you to the recovery console and from there you can select restore laptop to factory defaults or restore laptop retaining user data.

Hope this helps

System is running extremely slow, when I tried to do a factory restore I get an error code 0xf00000005. I ran hardware diagnostics on the hard drive memory cpu and mobo, tests run extremely slow. I tried...


After using Darik's boot and nuke (DBAN) your hard drive will be wiped clean with little chance of recovery. This also depends on how many passes you used for the disk wipe. More passes = less chance of recovery.

Restore from backup
You can restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup
section) from hard disk, CD or DVD.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 Select the desired restore action and follow the onscreen instructions to
complete the restore process.
