Hi!
Would you plz explain more!
What I understand is you want to restart your computer but you can't!
If this is the problem, You need to provide me with system you working on, if it's XP, you may try this:
Click "Run" from "Start Menu" then type: sfc /scannow
It will ask you to insert the Win XP CD in the CD ROM Drive, then press continue.
Wait untill the operation finishes then try again.
If your problem is different, please explain more!

Need to reboot


if it has a recovery partition ..just press f11 on start and start to reinstall from it (completely ) ..if it is not working try from boot menu ..(press f12 on start 0 ..and in the menu choose recovery partition .
In case you do not have such partition .try from a recovery disk if you have ..or if this is not available too ..try to use a boot-able disk with a operation system image on it ..and reinstall it ..
To do so ..you need to download an image of the OS , after that burn it on the disk using a image burner ..and end up with a boot-able disk ..
Insert the disk and restart ...press f12 to bring up the boot menu ..select CD /DVD drive and enter ..it will boot from the disk and ask you to press any key to confirm ..After that will start loading files and go on with the process of installing windows.
Good luck !

My acer aspire am5100 desktop needs a recovery to wipe the hard drive. I have the discs, but when they are placed in the drive, the system doesn't recognize them and starts up normally. It basically...


With the first recovery disc in in the drive, and starting from a powered off machine, press the power button and then press quickly and repeatedly on the F12 key. The boot menu should appear. When it does, make sure that CD/DVD/Optical whatever drive is highlighted. If it's not, use the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight it. When it's highlighted, hit the enter key.

The second you see a white message on a black screen that says...."Press any key to boot from CD" hit a key and begin to follow all the prompts.

You should be ok after that.

Regards,

Selk

You need reinstall the Operating System.

How do I reinstall my Operating System on my notebook or netbook with recovery disks?

In order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media please perform the following:

  1. Press the F2 key to enter BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test (POST while the Acer logo is being displayed).
  2. Using the keyboard arrow keys, arrow over to Boot.
  3. Refer to on screen instructions to set the first device to CDROM.
  4. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the System CD.
  5. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  6. Press the F10 key, and then the Enter key to save the changes and reboot the system.
  7. The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.

Note: If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media they may be purchased at our online Acer order form..

I want to reboot my acer aspire 5315. but i dnt hav the disc or anything. hav do i do it?


I think you mean restore to manufacturer Installation? Acer normally carries a e-recovery partition of which you need to press Ctrl+F12 to start it at the boot screen.(Where it says Acer on first turn on.) continuously press it until the recovery screen comes on and follow the instructions.

If your just rebooting the pc because of a shutting down issue where it is taking long to turn off, you might want to run some registry cleaning software or possibly try repairing windows.

Acer computer is frozen on screen which reads press f12 or del to enter setup. when computer comes on it does not beep so i cannot use keyboard all the lights on the keyboard aare off. HELP!!


From the description you are giving, it appears that the system is not detecting a bootable hard disk drive. Hold the power button on the system till it powers off. once system is off, try the following:
  1. Ensure no floppy diskette is in the A: if system has a floppy drive
  2. Disconnect all external items (Printer, scanner, network connection) leave only video and keyboard connected to system.
  3. Try powering system on again
If the system gives the same message, try rebooting and pressing F12 ONCE at the ACER screen and see if you can get a 1 time boot menu. If you can get the boot menu, select CD-ROM, and put you WINDOWS CD in the optical drive, see if system will boot to the CD. If you can, then at the first prompt, press R to enter recovery console, and see if you can run the command CHKDSK /R (then press enter)
If chkdsk runs, then reboot and see if the error has gone away. IF you cannot run CHKDSK then the hard disk drive has likely failed and will need replacement.

Acer Aspire T180


check your removable media disk drives and make sure that you don't have like a jump drive or CD-Rom that the computer doesn't like. If that doesn't work, enter the BIOS setup (usually F2, F12, ESC or something like that....check the bottom of the screen.) and find the Boot Order settings & move hard drive to #1
