How to clean out and reinstall acer 6070 desktop


If you are talking about reinstalling windows it will clean out the old version for you. It will also remove all your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs. It will do a fresh install of the operating system.

You'll need an operating system disk that is the same version as the Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker that is affixed to your computer. If your COA Sticker says Windows Vista Home Premium, you cannot use an operating system disk that says Vista Home Basic. If they don't match, when it comes time to activate windows it will not work. When you activate windows and it asks for your Key Code use the series of 5 letters and numbers that are on your COA Sticker not the one from the cd you used to install because you might have borrowed the cd.

Hello! I've got a problem with my notebook Acer Aspire 5630 (OS Windows Vista Home Premium SP1): the system hangs everytime when I try to play video. And also my computer freezes after the system boot....


It sounds like there are some corrupted system files, in order for you to repair that, you will most likely have to reinstall the operating system. Next chance you get, backup all important files.
Your Acer should have came with some CD's and/or a manual. If there is a Restoration CD or a CD with Windows Vista, then put that in the CD Tray in and restart your computer. Right when the Acer screen pops up, it will tell you what key to press to get into the BIOS setup. (This might take a few tries to get).
Once in the BIOS go to the Boot Sequence/Order options and make your CD/DVD drive the first boot device if not already. Then restart(while CD is in tray). And follow the instructions!
Acer computers often have a hidden partition on the hard drive that contains the recovery/reinstall tool. Look in the manual(or Google) for the exact key, as it varies on model and year.

My hp laptop with windows vista home premium is not booting and showing to insert bootable disk, which I don't have.how i can get this


The installed Windows in your laptop has been corrupted beyond repair - you will have to reinstall it.
For that pres F11 during boot to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition then follow the instruction. If even that fails it means that the hard disk itself has failed - the disk will have to be replaced and to reinstall Windows you will have to order a recovery cd for your exact model from HP.

I have a Acer Aspire 5315 series I need Vista software to get my system fixed from virus


First look for Acer recovery from your computer, there should be acer erecovery management program or similar on your computer that may have a option to burn recovery disks or to restore the computer automatically.

if you don't have that option in your start menu or you can't locate the software from your computer Then try the recovery partition method in the start up of your machine.

Acer machines should have a build in recovery, hold down ALT and press on F10 repeatedly when you power on the machine, keep pressing every 2 seconds until acer recovery comes up, if it doesn't come up then your machine probably doesn't have that option, the laptops mostly have it.

If you are unable to do any of the above then you may be able to order recovery discs from ACER -- https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=Acer

If that link doesn't work, copy it to your addressbar and press enter.

If you end up with no way to restore or no restore media, you would have to get your hands on a windows installation cd.

I've written instructions for how to install windows XP, Home, pro, etc. windows Vista, and windows 7.

You can find those instructions here

I need to get back in my OEM vista home premium


If you contact Toshiba, they can send you the original restore disks. If you are really nice to them, they might send them out for free.. I believe normally they do charge but they sent them to me for free a couple of years ago with my Toshiba laptop :)

Restore Hardrive to Factory Settings, Missing Hidden Partition


Yes Claudia you are right. When you wiped the hard drive you deleted the partition that contained the systen restore (factory restore). You will have to purchase a new copy of Vista. It will not contain all of the other programs that came with your computer originally.
Before you installed Windows 7 it clearly states that you have to back up your system before you install it on your hard drive.
Why didn,t you keeep windows 7, if I may ask? If you made a copy of it (which you had to do when you insatlled it) reinstall it and use it. Microsoft will let you purchase it for $50.00, which is a lot less that what it will cost you to purcase Vista Home Premium.

I have windows vista and sometime opening a webpage so many of them pop up without stop , so I m forced to restart the sistem , this happens in 2 of my pcs . Is there a solution for this problem ? thanks....


This is usually caused by a virus.  Install and run a good (not free) antivirus program.  If you have recovery disks for the computer then back up your data and do a system restore.  This will take care of the virus and is the best solution.
