How do you reboot aspireone

I will assume that by reboot you understand reinstall the operation system and I will give you the options for it ..
First and the most simple way is to use the recovery partition some laptops came with from factory , and reinstall eh system completely .to do so you need to have one ..and to engage it press F11 on start or press f12 to get the boot menu and choose the partition for recovery from the menu and press enter .This will start it and you probably have some options for repair or reinstall from scratch ..If you do not know the exact key ..take a close look when it starts cause it is indicated on screen ..
Another way it is to use a recovery disk ..and the procedure is to start the computer with the disk inside and if it asks you to press any key to boot from the disk do it and will start the recovery ..If it does not asks it means the boot order have to be changed from bios .To do so F2 on start and go to bios ..and in there select advanced settings ..and under the boot sector the CD /DVD to be the first boot device ..After selecting it press F10 to save the settings and restart .It will work .
3rd posibility in case there is no recovery disk or partition available is to use a boot-able disk with the operation system on it , and same way ...Insert the disk sure you select the boot device in bios ..and press any key when it asks to start installing the OS ..Or ..if you do not want to mess with bios settings ..just insert the disk ..and restart ..and press f12 right the way ..and in the boot menu single action boot from disk drive ..and enter to engage will ask to press key to confirm and start loading files..
When you get to the agreement you confirm it ..and after that select the C drive for to install into it ..and go on ..(I suggest to format the drive in quick mode (ntfs )

Need to reboot

if it has a recovery partition ..just press f11 on start and start to reinstall from it (completely ) ..if it is not working try from boot menu ..(press f12 on start 0 ..and in the menu choose recovery partition .
In case you do not have such partition .try from a recovery disk if you have ..or if this is not available too ..try to use a boot-able disk with a operation system image on it ..and reinstall it ..
To do so need to download an image of the OS , after that burn it on the disk using a image burner ..and end up with a boot-able disk ..
Insert the disk and restart f12 to bring up the boot menu CD /DVD drive and enter will boot from the disk and ask you to press any key to confirm ..After that will start loading files and go on with the process of installing windows.
Good luck !

Recovery disk does not recognize machine

I don't know what you mean by recognizing ..but i suppose it does not start the recovery process..and this may have a few causes..
The first thing to check is if the disk is having an operation system on it or it is just the drivers and factory programs recovery ..In this case you need a boot-able disk with the operation system on it ..and use the recovery disk after installing the system first .
Another thing may be just a boot issue ..If your computer does not have the boot from cd enabled ..this may be an issue my advice is to press f2 on stat and go to BIOS settings ..and look for boot sequence and select the cd /dvd drive as first boot device ..and hard disk the second..and save the changes by pressing F10 ..and restart ..This will make the disk to boot like it should if it has the correct information on it ..It will ask to press any key for confirmation of the disk boot ...and go with the installing .
there is a 3rd possibility in which you have to load the ahci driver for the system first ..cause the recovery disk loads the files but do not see a boot disk ..cause the hard disk by default is set to work on the ahci function of the sata bus..and if you do not load a 3rd party driver for the ahci does not see the hdd..In this case load the driver from a floppy or from a usb ..and go on with the process or just go to bios ..and look for the ahci feature in the advanced settings or in teh devices..and disable it and let it run sata as ide or ide compatible settings with F10 and restart ..It will never ask for driver again and will load the recovery if the disk is functional .
i hope this will help ..cause I covered almost all possibilities but a faulty disk in which case you just have to get a boot-able disk with the operation system you use and reinstall it clean ..and run the drivers after doing it ..and install all programs needed manually .
Please rate my answer if it helps ..and thank you for using our site !..
have a nice day !

How do i set my acer aspire 5742z laptop back to its factory settings?

Please save any files or photo,s that you may have on your laptop

Then you could try this method from within your programs

Click Start

Click Programs

Click Acer Recovery Management

Click the Restore button on the bottom of the dialog box that opens

Click Restore System to Factory Default

Click Yes in the warning dialog box which asks if you wish to continue the recovery process

Click yes Start to restore the computer to the default factory settings

Sometimes there is a default acer password which is quite often 000000 that is 6 zero's


place the recovery disk into your cd if you have them or produced them
and if you haven,t produced them yet i would make it your ist prioty when
you take back to factory settings you should see a pop up boxes asking you
to do it you will need about 4 writable dvd i was alway told to use dvd minus for the recovery disks
not the dvd plus ones

restart the laptop pressing F12 i believe

then follow on screen instructions

many thanks

please let us know if this has helped you
so that we can hopefully help others

Hi please could you assist me on restoring my laptop to its factory setting??

if you know that you have a recovery disk ...just insert it and restart ..and follow instructions ...(move all important data from it or into another partition first )
If you have a recovery partition ..just p[ress f11 on start-up ,,and boot from partition ...probably will ask you to press any key to do that ..and follow instructions ..
if you do not have such things you will need a bootable disk with the operation system and all the drivers for it ..and its a little tricky I suggest to ask someone to help you cause you have all the chances to mees things up for the first time ...

Thank you for your query

From what you are describing the recovery disks are faulty, and as things stand you have no operating system.

The only thing you can do about it, is to contact Toshiba to obtain replacement discs

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank you again

I can not make my recovery disc.

Hi there.
I'm sorry to tell you that when you reformatted the drive you deleted the recovery partition and all the recovery information on it, this is why the recovery disk creator cannot be launched and is giving you an error.
Thankfully for you, you created a recovery disk before you wiped the drive so this is your only way of restoring the system so make a back-up copy of the recovery disk you made and keep it safe as the problem cannot be solved because you deleted the recovery partition.

Thanks for using FixYa!!
