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 do reboot my acer no disk


To access the recovery partition on your Acer computer for a full restore, follow these steps:

1. Power on the Computer
2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the left ALT KEY and press the F10 key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery.
3. Once eRecovery has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings
4. Click OK
5. From here, the eRecovery process will replace all the data on the C:\ partition and restore the factory image.
6. After eRecovery has run, press OK to reboot.

NOTE: All data will be lost during this process and your computer will be brought back to it's original factory state and settings.

If this fails because you have deleted the recovery partition or changed the hard disk due to failure you will require a restore CD.

The Restore CD costs approximately $19.95 (plus taxes) including shipping. If you have a unit from US or Canada, you may purchase the recovery disc from Acer store : Acer Store
If you have purchased the computer in any other country, you may contact Acer support here : Acer Global Support

I DONT KNOW HOW TO RESTORE MY ACER BACK TO FACTORY SETTINGS


The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop. A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop. It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature. You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard. Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.

Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive. Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook. Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load. 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. Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot the netbook when you are prompted. Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

How do i reset my laptop back to factory settings


The disc that you should have received with the laptop should give you this option. Just put it in and reboot and it will bring you to a menu with a few different recovery options to choose from.

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

Looks like your recovery cd is corrupted. You must obtain a copy of Ms Windows cd and install it using the license from the back of your laptop.If that doesn't work either its a hardware related (hdd) problem.
