Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

I can not fix recovery factory my pc


If you laptop was not supplied with a Windows CD then most likely the hard disk on your laptop has a recovery partition on the hard drive and you can restore your laptop back to the condition when you first purchased the laptop using this recovery partition.
Acer can also supply a recovery CD for your model Acer if you request one. This is needed when the hard disk has failed.
Read your laptop documentation for the instruction on the restore procedure. You also get this information from Acer's WEB site.

I have an Acer laptop that I love. However, it will not eject my CD and I can't get it to any way I try. HELP!


May not be what you wish to hear, but most CD/DVD drive units for a laptop, come out with removing one screw.

Once the optical drive is removed, the cover is removed, and the disk is taken out.

What Acer model number is it? This info should be on the bottom of the laptop.

Installer for my laptop empowering technology for acer 5910G


Acer (all acers) have a back up installer.... It is a retoration program that often came on a CD or DVD but the latter models have it stored on the hard drive. You should check to see if there is an option called MAKE BACK-UP CD's OF YOUR ACER ( something like that) then you can make a full set of CD's or DVD's (usually about 4 DVD's) before you uninstall anything

I just want to restart everything from my acer laptop and just start it from the begin when i first bought it. but then it wouldn't let me because it say if i do then i might have a chance that it will...


If your Acer came with restore CD's than load it into you're CD-ROM drive & boot to it. From factory there is either a small partition on you're drive D:\ Stored on the D:\ are files that are used when running Restore. You will not damage you're notebook. You should go to Acer & download any new drivers for you're Acer model. After download & uncompress if they are not .exe's. Burn to a CD or DVD. Go ahead & format than reinstall you're windows.
Other items you might want to back up to CD/DVD is personal data, address book, my documents folder. Identities folder, favorites folder & desktop folder.

Good Luck!

My cd/dvd drive for acer aspire 1654WLMi laptop won't work. It may need to be replaced but i can't find its product number on the machine or anywhere to buy the product from.


have you tried to use a cd/dvd cleaner in it,this may fix the problem as the laser can get dirty, failing that, you may have to take the drive out to get the brand & model number .
good luck

ACER RECOVERY HELP!!!


It comes as part of the package when you bought it.
It's already on the hard drive. Acer recommend you make a recovery disk before you start using the machine.

This is from Acer's Website.

Problem:
How can I launch Acer eRecovery Management to back up or restore my system?

Solution:
You can press <Alt+F10> or the Empowering Key to launch in a Windows environment, or press <Alt+F10> during boot up. For the Veriton desktop series, you can also press the hardware reset button at any time. For the Aspire or AcerPower desktop series, an Acer eRecovery Management icon can be found on the desktop screen.


Hope it helps.
