Order a recovery cd and use it then get rid of the corrupted recovery partition, it cannot be fixed.

Acer 5535 how to restore back to factory settings


Hi

Thank you for your query

Restoring a laptop back to its factory settings can be done in one of 2 ways

1) Some manufacturers provide the recovery CD/DVD, simply put this disc in and restart the PC, the DVD/CD should boot and then you can follow the onscreen instructions

2) Some manufacturers provide hard drive based recovery, this mean rather than provide a CD/DVD,manufactueres put the recovery on a section of the hard drive. To use this method you click on start>Programs then find the name of the manufacturers folder. In this folder there will be a programme titled system recovery, factory settings. Click on this and follow through on the instructions

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote

How do i recover my system with back up disk


Insert the recovery CD in your CD-ROM,Set your BIOS to boot from CD-ROM,then follow the Instruction.

That's it.

Note : Restoring your system with Recovery disk will erase your entire Operating drive data.Make sure you backup your data (if you think it has  imporatnt data) before going for recovery.

You can use any Linux Live CD distribution.But if you are not familiar with Linux.Download "Hiren's Boot CD"

Here is the link

http://www.hirensbootcd.net/

Just clikc the download button and extract the file using Winzip or Winrar.

Burn the ISO files with Nero or MagicISO or PowerISO in a CD.

Boot the system using that CD (set the First Boot Device as CD-DVd ROM in BIOS).

Select "Start Mini Windows XP"

then copy all the important files to another media.

That's it.

Acer aspire 5050 will not boot up, says no operating system, where can I find system restore download


Sadly, you can't just download a system restore disk.
Some computers these days have a secret system restore partition, I read that you need to press ALT+F10 to access it, but I can't confirm if that is correct. Try pressing that combination just before you usually get the message.
If the laptop is still under warranty, you probably want to contact Acer.
I decided to check the Acer website (http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/webpage.cfm?siteid=7293&areaid=7&website=AcerPanAm.com/us) and it appears you can buy a new recovery CD, so I guess there may not be a free solution..

D2d recovery


Hi there
You want to restore your computer to its original settings without
recovery CDs?
This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps below to rebuild your C: drive. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option.
Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.
1 To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during boot up.
2 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.
3 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.
4 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.
To start the recovery process:
1 Restart the system.
2 While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to
enter the recovery process.
3 Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.

Good luck and Merry Christams

I assume from the question that you want to restore your computer to factory default - like the day you bought it. Warning - this process will wipe out all you data unless you back it up to an external drive or DVD.

If windows is running you can start it by going to Programs, Acer Empowering Technology and run the Acer eRecovery Management. Note that on the bottom of the eRecovery Management window are 3 choices, Backup, Burn Disk and Restore. Click on Restore. Here you have the choice of selecting Restore System to Factory Default.

If windows is not working but the system boots -
Reboot the system and when the Acer logo appears, hold down the ALT key and press F10. This starts the recovery process, just follow the instructions.

Dont know how to restore factory settings


Hi,

to restore OS (factory), there are 2 ways.
1. If you already create recovery disk, you can boot from disk and follow step by step.
2. I hope you haven't deleted the recovery partition in your hdd. If you haven't, Boot your computer, before it go to windows, press Alt+F10. it will go to recovery menu, this will wipe out your C drive.

otherway:
you can order recovery cd from acer, but they will charge you (i don't know how much).

Acer 5050


by default acer 5050 have 3 partitions
1. OS partition (C)
2. Data (D)
3. Recovery partition (hidden).

If you deleted recovery parition, you can't recover your C parition using Alt+F10. Your only option is recovery from cd/DVD recovery that you created. if you didn't create the cd/dvd, you can call acer support to buy the recovery dvd.
