You can use a hard drive imaging program such as Norton Ghost to create a recovery DVD(s). Norton Ghost is available as part of System Works or as a stand alone program. Power Quest's Drive Image is also an alternative, however it is too old to be compatible with Vista - you could do a Drive Image outside of Windows - booting off the Floppy.

How do i reinstall windows?


Depends on whether your system came preinstalled or with a os installation disk. If preinstalled you'll have to do a full system recovery from the start up menu. When starting up hit f11 and that will take you to the recovery screen. If disk is available put it in the cd/dvd drive and restart the system. follow the onscreen instructions from there.

I tried to restore my Acer T180 and installed my restore disk. Unfortunately, they were the wrong disks. They were from my eMachine. They worked but now I can't register my Windows operating system. If...


Yes, when you use the actual discs that came with the computer you computer will be restored to normal. These Operating systems are called BIOS locked CDs, if they detect the right brand BIOS / motherboard they will install the OEM edition of the OS, hence you need not activate it or it will get activated properly.

Laptop: Sony Vaio Serial Tag: C3LRMD7Q Model: PCG7133L Need information for recovery disks for the foremention laptop. The OS is Windows VISTA Home Premiun.


Hi,

The VAIO Model VGN-NR498E/S is shipped with Recovery partition in the hard drive. It is required to create the recovery discs as soon as you get the notebook. Using either recovery discs or the recovery center you can reinstall the preinstalled OS in the computer. But, it depends if you has changed the preinstalled OS, the recovery partition will be erased and no longer be accessible.

However, in your case, if you not made any changes to the preinstalled OS, restart the computer and press and hold the F10 key. this will launch the recovery tools. On the next screen, press Enter key. Then you will be able to view options such as "Restore C Drive", "System Restore" etc. There select "Restore C Drive" to reinstall the preinstalled Vista OS in the Computer.

If you have changed the preinstalled OS in the computer, then it is requires to purchase the recovery discs from Sony's parts center:

https://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/productSearch.do?searchOperation=partSearch&searchText=Y8318272A&sessionId=pfBoWO6gh7vj_fseXl4oiMI

The above part is no longer available with them However, you can use the part #Y8318272A to search for the recovery discs with online retailers and others.

Thanks!!!!

: I bought a Acer One Netbook model AO751H-1948.


to tell u the reality the recovery disks is of no use as per my openion.
as they cant reload the OS in case ur machine crashes....so just have a WinOS CD from which u can reload OS again in case there is any crash,
the recovery disks do work but they wont help you in case you need to reload the OS again.
So just buy a WinOS if ur machine came with preinstalled OS
this is my experience and personal openion, the rest of the decison is left to you.

If not, the guys who sold yhe pc should install it for you, since a part of the computers price is for the OS, or at least they should provide you a recovery DVD.

Need Drivers


Actually you need to install chipset drivers first then you shoud try for additiona PCI driver like external sound card.
Try one thing again, go to your www.acer.com site and search driver as per your "Service tag no." not for model no. and download drivers for 'Chipset' and others as per your requirement.

Thanks
