If it worked before then boot into Safe Mode ( repeatively tapping on F8 while booting) and once there look for and select "last known good configuration".

Or if that doesnt work place your windows cd on cd-rom and boot off it. Select "Repair " for installation option

Work recovery system, it wants to access recovery options, but i cant remember password


reboot laptop and keep tapping the f8 key while its booting.
you will get an options screen, select ''boot into safe mode''.
it should then boot up in safe mode, once on desktop go to start menu>>all programmes>>and look for the acer recovery tools...ity will be their as all acers have these tools.
in the recovery tool, you will have the following options.

factory restore computer = thios will erase all your files from the hard drive and reinstall windows again, once done it will be the same as when you first bought it and took it out of the box.

or..restore windows files and settings only = this restores the windows files system so as to fix the errors that are causing problems, none of your personal files will be erased or lost and will still be on the computer once the operation completes.

i would go with the first option and do a factory reset. If you have personal files you want to keep, then when booted up into safe mode yhou can copy those files to a usb thumb drive or a CD or whatever. Once you have your files saved, perform the factory restore instalation.

Or you could just boot into safe mode, and if you get onto desktop, goto start menu>>all programmes>>>accesories>>system tools>> back up and recovery. From their, select ''system restore''...it will show a list of restore points with dates next to them. Their will also be a box unticked that says ''show more restore points''. tick that box so all restore dates and points are showing.
Then select a restore point and date about 5 to 7 days before the problem occured.
so if the problem happend on say the 7th november.....restore it back top around the 30th october.

this will just undo any system changes that are causing errors and get your pc working again without affecting any of your personal files.

if all the above fail, you will have to reinstall windows yourself, just download the iso from microsoft website
download the 'windows 7 usb tool' from microsoft website.
insert a USB thumbdrive at least 4GB in size.
run the windows usb tool and follow the on screen instructions which will then
load the windows downloaded file onto your usb drive.

once done, reboot pc and hit f12 (or whatever key it is for your model to enter the boot options menu - a quick search on google will tell you the key for boot menu if f12 or esc key do not work).
once in boot options menu..select your usb device to boot from and press enter.
windows will then install on your laptop.
once on desktop, goto start menu and eright click on ''computer''.
select 'properties'
then select 'device manager....and cxheck to see what drivers may be missing.
once you see what drivers are missing...goto acer support.cm (you may have to use another computer to do this if your ethernet or wi fi driver is missing and you cant access the internet.
once on acer website, selecter the drivers and manuals tab......it will then ask you to input your computer model number, brand, operating system.....then it will give you a list of all the drivers for your machine...now download the ones you need, then install them by opening the file and double clicking the ''set up .exe' file.

once all drivers are in reboot nachine and then wait for wqindows update to kick in and apply the neccesary updates.

Restore windows xp home basic to factory settings


Hi coz352...

Select models of Acer computers, with Microsoft Windows, have the ability to have the Operating System reinstalled from a hidden partition built into the computer.
Note: During the process, all data stored on your computer will be overwritten. This means all your files, such as email and photos, will be erased. Therefore, we recommend making a backup of all personal data before starting the recovery process.
To start the system recovery:
1.Restart the computer.
2.When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
3.If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
4.After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase the set online from the Acer Recovery Media Order Form..
Note: If your computer does not have an internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
1.Restart the computer.
2.When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
3.Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
4.Close the CD-ROM tray.
5.Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
6.The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media

Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.

8.After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.

My asus f5rl keeps coming up with boot error 0xc000000f when turned on. How can i restore it please?


Before going any further, please help to confirm the following three points:


1. Does any other error message appear when starting the computer?

2. Did the computer start properly before?

3. Have any changes been made on the computer recently, such as an installation or upgrade?


The issue can be caused by many factors, such as incorrect BCD entries and incompatible hardware or software.


Based on the current situation, I suggest trying the following methods to troubleshoot the issue.


Method 1: Startup Repair from the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)

===============================================================

1. Insert the Windows Vista installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ..." appears.

3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.

4. Click Repair your computer.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next.

6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on Repair your computer.

7. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.

8. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair.


Can the computer be started now?


If the issue persists, I would like to confirm if System Restore was enabled before.


If so, we can try to restore the system to a state when your computer worked properly in WinRE.


Method 2: Use the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) to run System Restore

=======================================================================

1. Instert the Windows Vista installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.

3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.

4. Click Repair your computer.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next

6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on System Restore.

7. Follow the System Restore Wizard instruction as usual and choose the appropriate restore point.

8. Click Finish to restore the system.

How can I locate a recovery disk for my computer?It seems to have a virus and needs wiped clean.


I have a different solution, one that might not require you to wipe your computer completely. You could try booting into safe mode first, by hitting f8 after your boot screen, but before you see the windows logo. Select safe mode.

Once you've successfully booted, hold down your windows key and hit "R". Type "msconfig" and hit enter.

Under the services tab, click the "hide all microsoft services" and uncheck everything you see. Under the startup tab, uncheck everything also. Click OK and restart.

When it boots normally, and you see the popup box saying you made some changes.. etc etc: click the checkbox to hide, and click OK.

Now, go to www.combofix.org, download, and run. Follow the instructions carefully - it will create a system restore point and install the recovery console. It may reboot your computer.

Once it is done and a log has shown on your screen, download and install a free antivirus such as AVG (free.avg.com), update, and run a full scan.

After this, you should be OK.

A recovery disk either comes with your computer or is installed on another partition that is accessible via a function key at startup - so when you turn on your computer, you hit F# (usually 8, 10, 11, 12) and it should give you some options to restore the recovery partition.
