Question about Acer PC Desktops
SOURCE: very slow computer
I think the person who told you to press F2 or F12 did this to get you into your bios so you could change the boot order. While windows is running, put your recovery cd in the cdrom & just restart the pc. As your Pc begains to startup press the F8 key every two seconds. This will bring up what in known as the boot menu. You can choose which device you want to boot from, for this situitation pick the cdrom & the cd will begin to run your recovery program. There are other ways of getting your system to run like a new install. One is run a program that will clean your entire drive. Like this program & it's free.
After a good cleaning run windows Defrag. By doing this you will not loose any of your personal data or current updateds.
And there you go!

Smart is a BIOS based harddrive testing utility, it is warning you that the harddrive is about to fail.
You should back up all your personal files as soon as possible and buy a new harddrive.

Go into your CMOS settings and make sure the DVD/CD drive is set as a bootable device, and that it comes before the Hard Drive in the device boot sequence.

If you used the restore disk on your computer it will erase all files, and all your programs. the restore Factory settings means "ALL" settings the time you created the CD for the restore.
If you have an individual Vista Installer CD with the Serial you can use it and use restore option.

What type of disks are you using? You cannot use DVD RW. You need to use DVD - R . I have had this very issue. Hope this helps.
PS, once it tries to write to a dvd and fails, try a new one.
