    recovery disks are generally specific to the machine that they were made on.... or the brand of computer at least.... just to clarify... you are trying to recover the system ... not restore it.

Computer freezes / locks up after running a while,


Sounds like it's overheating. Check to make sure your graphics card cooling fan and CPU cooling fan are working. If they are add some case fans. Get a can of compressed air and clean out all the vents and fans. You can also use a vacuum with a hose attachment to clean it.

Will not start, windows says it starting but never do . don't have recovery disk


Run the Check Disk Utility with your Vista Ultimate disk.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Describe your Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer Problem i had win7 ultimate the power went out it says it cant repair itself i tried reinstalling vista but it wont repair it opens to the win vista install...


Hi k_d_nsyg ,
Install a replacement HD and see what it does when launching the Vista install disc .
if it works , you can probably still recover the data from the old HD with a recovery software such as :
http://download.cnet.com/Recuva/3000-2242_4-10753287.html
or http://www.tenorshare.com/data-recoveryr.html by placing the defective Hd in an external box connected to a healthy computer .
If you don't succeed to get your pc running , you need to bring your machine to a qualified repair office .
Best regards ,

Can I load drivers downloaded to a disc,and install on other pc


Yes, go to Acer site, locate your model for drivers. Download them into a folder on your other machine (the one with internet access). Then insert a USB stick and copy and paste the folder to the stick. Now just insert the stick in the Vista machine, drag the folder to your desktop and begin installing your drivers.

Here is a link to your drivers. Click on desktop / Aspire / M1640 then make sure to set the operating system to Vista Ultimate.

Hope this helps.

I m looking for recovery cd of my notebook TX 1301.


HP TX1301 - you should have got one with your computer or at least a utility on your computer which creates recovery discs using your own blank discs.

See this for Windows XP http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=bph08097

Windows Vista
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=&product=81351&docname=c00810334

If you are running Vista and you cant boot your computer , insert the vista installation disc into the drive , start the computer off the install disc , click repair my computer when you get the "Install Now" option to access vistas recovery tools from the disc

Doing siytem restore,and have no operating system.Vista home premium model no s 3460 sofware build 82APv3PrA1.Im under warranty what can i do?.In the start of system restore computer stopped,message reeds...


Starting the recovery from power up If Windows Vista cannot open and if the Recovery partition on the hard disk drive is functioning properly, you can perform a System Recovery by performing the following procedure:
  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Do one of the following actions depending on how Windows Vista was installed:
    • If Windows Vista came pre-installed on your computer, press the F11 key repeatedly when the first screen opens (the logo screen), until Recovery Manager program opens on the screen.
    • If your computer was upgraded from Windows XP to Windows Vista, press the F10 key repeatedly when the first screen opens (the logo screen) until Recovery Manager program opens on the screen.
    If Recovery Manager does not open, a set of recovery discs is needed to perform a System Recovery. Follow the instructions listed in Starting the recovery from recovery discs .
  5. Click Next .
  6. On the screen that prompts for Microsoft System Restore select No , and then click Next .
  7. The Recovery Manager gives you the option of backing up your data files. Backing up your files is recommended. To back up your files select Yes , and then click Next . Follow the onscreen instructions. If you do not want to backup your files, select No , and then click Next .
  8. After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup. Then, turn off the computer, reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the computer.
  9. Before using the computer, update and protect it by reinstalling any virus and security software that was installed before the System Recovery.
  10. Reinstall any software applications that were added after puchasing the computer, and replace any files that were backed up.

I can't get my system recovery disk to work so i can restore my computer to the orginal format


If your recovery CDs have failed you have some options

1. you can call the company who made your computer about a new set of restore discs

2. you can buy an operating system disc such as XP or vista

XP or Vista , Operating System Installation CD will setup the computer nicely , you may need drivers for certan things but not likely.


Malfunctioning restore CDs really **** me off

I just chunk em and load my XP pro disc

( multi machine volume license required if you wanna put it on multible computers )
( same with vista )

but in some cases you may find that XP pro will install on many machines just fine.


Thank you for using FixYa!

I made a system recovery of Vista, then ran it and it worked, I installed Unix Ubuntu and decided I didn't like it. I went to re-install vista using my system recovery and it failed, do you know how I can...


Hi!

I understand that you had Vista installed on your computer, then installed Ubuntu, decided you didn't like it, and now want to reinstall Vista, but your system recovery disc does not work, correct?

From you description, I presume you did a full install of Ubuntu, which will require a full reinstallation of Vista to restore it. If you still have your original Vista install disc, load it into your CD-ROM drive and follow the prompts to reinstall Windows. If you can't find your install disc, or if you were never provided one, contact Microsoft's customer support and ask them how to get a new one. You can also ask them about getting new system recovery discs, which could also help revive your system.
