Try to diagnose using safemode. press F5 while booting.. under safemode type cmd in run start menu.
under the window for command prompt. type c:\chkdsk c:/f enter

-restart the computer.

if the said solution are not effective try to slave your hardisk with other computer and run the scandisk. to do this click the drive which is the corrupted one and right click >properties>tools>check now>check both option > ok.

then restart the computer and install back your hard disk to your laptop.

if this not effective;
the last option is to reinstall your O.S.(operating system-windows) if you want your file not to be deleted in your harddisk do not format your hard drive in installing your O.S.(operating system-windows).

Im trying to restore acer aspire sa80 mmx1 to factory settings plz help


if you press [F12] or [F11] or [Alt]-[F10] one of them should get you to launch the Factory Restore wizard....your manual does not say which key it is....'course if it is old enough, it may not HAVE a Factory Restore partition on the Hard drive, and then you'd be out of luck...unless you get the Factory Restore CDs from Acer, that is.

I need to restore my acer to factory settings


Hi,

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

You can also create a set to Recovery disk from the recovery partition, to do so

Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Click Create Factory Default Disk, if you receive any error code or unable to burn the disk, please contact Acer Technical support at 1 800 816 2237 and order for an Recovery Disk.

Thanks and regards,

I have problem, forgot my windows 7 password, called acer helpline, they advised to reset computer to factory setting by f10 and alt button on turning computer on. it gave me 2 options. save info and...


Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble.

This is a common problem with Acer. You need to press at the same time the two keys Alt and F10 when you see the Acer logo appearing.You might have to do it twice or thrice. You would be able to see the recovery management screen and then you could follow and restore the same.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do i reset my acer aspire one to factory default is ther a download for it


You can get restore CDs from Acer if you didn't burn them when you got your computer. Alt F10 is supposed to get you to the restore partition. Power on, hit Alt F10, you may have to hit F10 several times while holding down ALT button. If you get anything but the restore menu, you don't have restore or you didn't hit F10 fast enough.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

Emachines G720 could you please help me restore it back to factory settings


If your computer has a restore partition, it can be accessed by repeatedly tapping alt+F10 right after turning the computer on. Usually with Acer computers (including emachines, gateway, and packard bell) I press alt+F10, alt+F11, F10, and then F11, and keep doing that, until it starts loading the recovery partition.

If that does not work, your computer may not have a restore partition, and you will need recovery discs. Usually you can obtain these from the manufacturer, but they will often charge for this.

I need recovery cd download for acer aspire m1640


There aren't any restore disks because most Acer's have them built-into the hard drive.

Just press SHIFT + F10 when you start the computer.

That should put you into the Acer eRecovery Menu.

If that key combo doesn't work try:

F10
Alt + F10
Fn +F10
ctrl + F10

Let me know which one works, I always seem to forget.

Best of luck!

Hi Sue
Kids are great aren't they? The magic combo you are looking for is alt and f10 (thats the f10 key - not f, 1 and 0). You need to press down the alt key and f10 simultaneously while the ACER screen is up.

The manual for your laptop can be found at this link. http://www.scribd.com/doc/2505575/Acer-Aspire-Laptop-manual

The instructions for the recovery are located on page 25. There is also a notice there that disk to disk recovery must be enabled in the bios for it work. The instructions are there to verify if this is so. Good luck and let me know how it goes.
