    my system didnt come with a system restore ik I was just trying to do it by hitting Alt-F10. I do think it has been reformatted though because when I go into BIOS it says Toshiba instead of Acer. I dont know how to get the Toshiba back out so I can get somewhere.

Well, you should try reformatting your hard drive chances are the old system restore disk formatted your drive to a different file system. After that install the restore disk that came with your system.

Hope this helps:)

When i turn on wifi my system getting blue screen problem


Try downloading and reinstalling the wifi driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Network drivers.


If the problem is not solved try running the Check Disk Utility.



To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. 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 when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
Try System Restore to roll your system back before the problem started.

You could try rolling your system back to a date when it was working correctly if you have a good idea of when the problem started. Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. System Restore will allow you to select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having the problem. System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected. In Windows 7 just click Start then type: System Restore in the search box and look up at the results and click System Restore.

System Recovery on the other hand deletes every thing and sets your system back to when you first purchased it.

Won't boot up


Then hopefully your system has a Recovery partition on your disk so you can get back to like it was when you first bought it.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Look for Manuals and search through them looking for System Recovery or Restore Factory Settings.

I own a Gateway nv7802u laptop computer that has recently crashed. When I turn the computer on, I get the normal Gateway startup followed by a black screen that says: PXE-E61: Media test failure, check...


Check and see if the hard drive came loose check the bios to see if it is recognized..It is saying there is nothing with an O/S on it and when you put the disk in it does not register a hard drive to restore..Check the hard drive and start the computer up and see if you can cancel the restore and start the laptop up regular..

Laptop does not boot up and recovery from cd gives d2d32 type mismatch error


A couple of things to try in the bios:

1. try changing the SATA mode to IDE for the restore and then back to AHCI mode after it was complete

2. Enable disk to disk recovery mode: To enable disk-to-disk recovery (hard disk recovery), activate the BIOS utility,
then select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen. Find D2D
Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the <F5> and <F6> keys to set this
value to Enabled.

Acer Aspire 5920 alt f10 to use my recovery dsk mismatch d2d32


This a very common error. I too have suffered from this but after about 15 hours of fighting with it.. I fix it. I could not use the ALT + F10 keys as I would get the D2D32 Type Mismatch Error. So lucky me when I got my laptop from acer I made the recovery DVD's just in case. But to my suprise Booting from the DVD disk also would fail with the D2D32 Type Mismatch error. I even try maken new recovery disk with some luck. the new disk worked one time. But I started to run the recovery on disk one and when it asked for disk 2 I hit the power button thinking it would still boot, as I didnt want to wait for the recovery process to complete. So I ended up with a acer laptop with no o/s installed and was not able to use the Alt + F10 as explaned above or Boot using the recovery DVD's... so how did I fix this little set back... simple

I broke out the windows xp install Boot cd and Booted my system with that. let it run all the way to the partation/Format section on windows xp setup. I left the partation as it was and formatted it with the quick option. BE VERY CAREFUL AT THIS STEP... MAKE SURE YOU DONT FORMAT THE WRONG PARTATION THE 9 GIG OR 10 GIG IS WRONG. IT WAS DRIVE LETTER F: ON MY SYSTEM. JUST MAKE SURE IT IS DRIVE LETTER C: THAT YOU FORMAT...After it was done with the format I powerd down the system and tried to Boot from the Recovery DVD and it worked. No D2D32 Type Mismatch error. "{ But I let it finish this time around"} So to keep it simple. all you need to do is keep the partation the same, just format it and it your recovery will work. both ALT + F10 and /or the DVD"S Boot. it the ALT+F10 by chance dont work... theres a quick fix also. you need to files called MBRwrWin.exe and RTMBR2.bin and they have to be on the root of drive c:...{Root - just copy them to C: } and then from a command prompt with Adminastration {right click cmd } and type MBRwrWin install Rtmbr2.bin <Enter> ALT + F10 is now ready and fixed...


if you need help let me know or just to give some feed back
email me at cyberburn666@yahoo.com
Good luck it works. I just went from on os installed to vista... with factory recovery working like the day I got it....
