I don't know what you mean by the gateway? if you mean restore disks then probably not because it is a new harddrive. You will need to install a new version of what ever windows it is that you require.

Hello Peggy
Bad news, if you forgot your hard disk password there is no way to help, just buy a new one, and recover all your operating system again.

Hard disk was replaced no reference point


if your previous hard drive can be read externally you need to use the recovery files due to the fact that your operating system is in the old drive and must be installed into the new drive or get a fresh operating system install.

This might be caused by hard-drive failure. You should run hard drive test from BIOS to make sure hard drive is ok. You can access BIOS by pressing F2 during start up, from there start hard disk self test and wait for it to complete.

To whom it may concern. im looking to reboot my acer 6935 but i dont know what way to do it, i dont have the recovery disc. could you please help. thanking you.. brian o' connell


This procedure will work usually unless there has been an alterations to the originally installed OS on the Acer. On recent Acer computers they have a hidden volume on the disk labeled PQService.
This volume is for restoring the computer to the factory settings in same condition as purchased new. It will erase everything currently on the main hard drive.

Step 1: Backup everything that is important to you, on a disk or separate hard drive.
This includes any documents, pictures and application installers.

Step 2: Reboot the system and press ALT-F10 during the POST to start the Acer eRecovery Management and reinstall the operating system.

Step 3: Select Restore system to factory default.

Step 4: The wizard will lead you through formatting the designated drive and installing the operating system from the computer hard drive to the designated drive.

Hi,Your operating system is corrupt,probably as a result of an infection or as a result of the Hard Disk failure.so i'll advise you take out the hard drive,back-up your files if any and format your system,then re-install operating system.

Windows comes up showing acer then it goes back off it dont come back on the window goes black.until i turn it back on


Put a bootable CD into the drive and change the boot order in setup to try to boot from the CD first. If it boots, then you know the problem is with the hard drive or with the operating system on the hard drive. Take the hard drive out and slave it to a working computer. Make sure it is the same operating system. You can get an adapter for the cable connection from your local computer store for about $15.00. If you can read the drive on the other computer, then you know the problem is the operating system. Burn all your files to CD or DVD while you have it slaved to the other computer then put the hard drive back into your laptop and then run your recovery discs. After you reinstall the operating system you can reload all your files. If you cannot read the drive when you have it slaved to the other computer, then the drive is toast and needs to be replaced. I hope you have backed up your files regularly.

Blue screen


This seems to be an Operating system issue , best way to resolve this is by Re-Installing the Operating system which will wipe everything in the laptop Hard disc, At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery. The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD. If the hard drive is replaced the system loses its eRecovery features. These features are on the hard drive and cannot be reinstalled

Acer Aspire 5050 won't boot up


ooh...no operating system. not good. ok..can you boot from CD? if that works, and it asks you to reformat the hard drive, STOP. Take the hard drive out, and then GENTLY reinstall. Maybe that will work. HD's can fail on laptops, just by a series of vibrations or shocks to the case.

got backup for your Acer?
