Hi,

Initially, pls verify that the hard disk and the CD/DVD drive are auto/manually detected in the BIOS/CMOS. Should both be detected, set CMOS/BIOS to boot from CD initially when performing the recovery. Soon as recovery is over, change the setting int eh CMOS/BIOS to instruct it to boot from the HD.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Check the bios settings, in boot settings you must set CD unit as first boot device, then you start PC with recovery disk 1 inside.

    Try accessing the bios settings screen first.
    You get bios setting screen by pressing a key on startup, usually del key, or f1 or f2 or f10 f11 key, depending on the model.
    The key must be pressed some time before windows logo comes up.
    Once you get bios, go to the boot options settings, and set CD as boot device.
    Restart the computer with recovery CD inside and follow instructions to do complete recovery.

    If the recovery start , but you cannot perform a complete recovery, check if recovery disk is scratched, if disk is OK, that usually means that the hard drive is faulty and need to be replaced.

How resstore my acer aspire to factory settings?


There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process. If there is not a disk,then follow this steps:
1.Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

hope this helps,Goodluck..

I rebooted and used the system recovery discs from the Geek Squad and now it won't read the Windows Vista system disc. Any ideas?


Telephone ACER, and order the correct set of "System Restore" CD/DVD disks for your model of computer -- since the computer was factory-shipped with a valid copy of Windows, ACER will ship a "replacement" to you, for just the cost of shipping.

Re-install Windows from that set of disks.

It's performing really slowly. How do I restore factory setting's i only have a blank recovery disc.


First do a virus scan and delete or quarantine any malware that comes up in the final results of the scan. Reboot the computer and see if it is running normally. If the computer is still not functioning properly you can use "Windows System Restore" to restore your computer's software configuration to an earlier date when it was functioning properly. The "System Restore" program is found under Programs/Accessories/System Tools.

Acer aspire not loading to windows


Hi,

If you have recovery disc or back up disc put it in and restart the PC and start tapping the F12 key until at the Acer splash screen, you should get now see your boot order, now use your up and down cursor key to highlight the CD/DVD drive and then press enter, this will now start the recovery disc that you put in, just follow the on-screen instructions.

If you don't have a disc, restart the PC and at the Acer splash screen start tapping the ALT+F10 or just F10 and if you have a recovery partition on your hardrive then the recovery program will start up, just follow the on-screen instructions.

Thanks

Some of this problem may result in formating you PC re-installing the windows but some can use recovery disk. it causes when virus infect some windows systems file and it has no cure but to re-install.

Other solution is to fix your hardware cable inside your PC they check your wire to your hardisk or other wiring just dont do anything just plug and unplug.

On you system bios check you boot sequence...
