the ERecovery Service?
Acer Computers there is a floating toolbar on the desktop called the
Acer Empowering Technology program. Within this program there is the
ERecovery Service that allows a user to create backup operating system
disks, create a backup of the current system, and more. This is a very
handy feature because in many cases the computer does not come with a
set of backup disks.
The icon for the ERecovery service looks like this one:
If you dont see this icon on the Empowering Technology bar then the
application is not installed and will not be available.
to Open ERecovery Service
are three ways to access the ERecovery Service.
ALT-F10 when the computer is first turned on. If you see the Windows XP
or Vista splash screen you've waited too long and will have to shut the
computer down and try it again.
the ERecovery Service icon on the Acer floating toolbar and click it.
on Start, All Programs, Acer Empowering Technology, and click on the
icon for Acer ERecovery Management.
from Vista to XP - "ERecovery Service is Not Available"
On many Acer models, the computer is preinstalled with Windows Vista,
but it comes with a set of Windows XP Professional disks that allow you
to uninstall Vista and reinstall Windows XP. Unfortunately, the hidden
partition (PQService) that enables the ERecovery feature remains with a
Windows Vista image. So, after the reinstallation of Windows XP, the
Erecovery service is not available and you'll see a screen similar to
the one below when you try to access it from within Windows.
can still access the ERecovery Service using the Alt-F10 trick when the
computer first starting booting, but you'll be disappointed to see the
Windows Vista OS instead of Windows XP. Dont proceed with the ERecovery
at this point unless you want to restore the system back to Vista.
erecovery password Acer has a software named eRecovery. This software dedicated to their customers in order to get Windows OS recovery process a lot more easier and faster even a kid able to do it.
Acer created a hidden partition labeled PQSERVICE
You wouldn't able to see this partition in Windows explorer. If you want to see this partition existance, right-click My Computer -> Manage -> Disk Management
PQSERVICE partition contain an image of Windows OS (XP/Vista/Seven) and this partition will be load to recover anytime when your Windows OS crashed, unstable, or infected by virus.
By pressing ALT+F10 before entering Windows boot process, you will access Acer eRecovery menu and asked the location where the backup will restore (ussually C: Drive). After few simple clicks (as easy as click Next) you will have your Windows back as 'factory default' state (State when you bought your Acer machine)
But how if there are password required for eRecovery? The windows is crashed and unfortunately... you don't know the password?
If this doesn't work you don't have a built in recovery partition or its corrupt in which case you need recovery disk or a copy of windows.
To access the recovery partition on your Acer computer for recovery,
follow the steps listed below.
1. Power on the computer 2. At
the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the Alt key and press
the F10 key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery. 3.
Once eRecovery has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default
Settings 4. Click OK to continue 5. From
here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive
and restore a fully functional factory image (approximately 10 minutes). 6.
Once eRecovery has run, press OK to reboot unit
that all data will be lost during this process and your computer will
be brought back to it's original factory state and settings.
IF it came with a Vista Install,and you are installing the exact same Vista,then YES, The "Key" on the bottom, is the right one and it will absolutely work. These units have a BIOS that has a special Activation Code inside. The Windows install "Sees" that "Code" and Activates Vista. You DO need to user an ACER Version though, this can be downloaded from the "net though, as an ISO,burn that to DVD, and you can use that.
