How long did you wait? sometimes on first boot after recovery it take a few minutes. if you don't get any error messages i'd wait and see, if you wait for a long time and nothing happens reboot and try to do the recovery again.

SOURCE: My Acer Aspire one Netbook XP(SP3)'s system recovery doesn't work

Are you trying to access your original recovery software the one that is located on a separate partition? If you are and aren't able to, that particular partion might be currupted. your only option would be to try to install your software with a disc.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to use the recovery disks for acer aoa110 1588

When your pc first comes on, you'll see some options at the bottom, ie "press f11 for setup". Gotta be quick, Press the option to enter the setup menu, You should see "press any key to boot from disk or dvd", do that and it will load your disk. If it gives you a list to choose from, youll see your ext hdr listed, choose it and viola!

SOURCE: acer aspire one netbook touchpad

If possible try to connect a USB mouse and use that to enable the touchpad...
After that reinstall the drivers for the touchpad the issue should be fixed... Even if you still have the issue then call the computer manufacturer.

If you dont get a USB mouse.. Then turn on the computer get into safe modem by tapping F8... Try to check in safe mode whether the touchpad is working.. If its working reinstall the drivers the issue will be fixed

SOURCE: i have a acer aspire

Some Viruses DO attach to the files in the recovery set up. They can also replicate themselves in files used to go back to an earlier time when things where running ok. The best thing to do is clean the system of any Viruses, Many good FREE programs on the net, Search for Malwarebytes, This is a very good free anti malware program, then Avast antivirus. Free to use and very good up to date programs.

Dell Inspiron mini 10. The system will not boot up, after the Dell logo screen and blue bar goes away, the screen is blank and the curser is flashing in the upper left corner of the screen. F11 isn't...


That cursor indicated that the BIOS can't find an Windows installed on the hdd. Since even the recovery partition appears to be inaccessible the only thing left is to reinstall it using the recovery cd that should have come with it when you bought it If you don't have it you can order it from Dell.

Hi my acer aspire 1 a0531h won't boot up!!!! when i switch it displays the acer logo then goes to a black screen with a white flashing cursor in the top left hand corner... i have no boot up disc as...


when the Acer logo comes up, press Delete (if not delete check the text at the bottom of the screen for the button corresponding to setup) and set the hard disk drive as the primary boot device

if the Hard Drive is set to primary (or referred to as 1st boot device) just leave the laptop at the blinking white curser.. it may just take a while to load if new hardware is found.

I have an Acer Aspire One netbook, when attaching a Virizon BroadBand stick to the netbook, after all Virizon software was loaded on to the net book, it lost everything but boots to a pretty blue screen...


Try pressing Alt+F10 on boot up and see if it will let you do a factory reset. Otherwise you will need to contact Acer for a recovery disk if you do not have one. They shouldn't charge you for it (maybe shipping?)

Black screen with blinking curser in left top corner


Hold the power button down and let it fully power off then boot it back up. If you get a prompt saying Windows did not shut down normally, select Last Known Good Configuration.

When i turn on laptop screen oes blank but can see curser


Do you see the acer splash screen before you get the black screen with the curser? If so it is more than likely a windows problem. Boot from your XP disk and select R when prompted to repair. Once in the repair console type the following:

chkdsk /r

When it is finished (will take about an hour) then type exit to restart the computer.

Hope this helps

Blank screen blinking curser at top left


i would have it serviced. the biggest problem people face is waiting to fix something and the warranty is out. i would keep testing to see if it does it again. when it does, send it in and get whatever is causing it fixed. or just work your heart away and risk it crashing when you least expect it. better to be safe then sorry, the error you are telling me about seems like a motherboard or hard drive related issue

Good Luck!

Recovery disks aren't Windows XP


Have you tried booting the laptop with the recovery disk already in the CD drive. If the disk doesnt register and start to spin press F12. Should give you option to boot from CD
