1. Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power"
button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL"
keys at the same time.
2. During startup, hold down the "F8" function key
immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering
3. Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot
Options" menu appears.
If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire
and repeat step 2.
4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode"
selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the
Acer Aspire keyboard.
5. Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode"
The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode"
and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer
Aspire to boot normally again.
Could you look at solutions other than running a system restore? What is the initial issue that is requiring you to run the restore?
If you're at the point of needing to run a restore, you do need to get your hands on the discs, I would recommend borrowing the discs from someone else with an Acer, or purchasing them from the manufacturer. Trying to borrow discs from someone might be an issue as Acer no longer provides physical recovery discs, the process is run directly from the laptop and the files are on a partitioned section of the harddrive.
As the unit will not boot at, i am afraid you are going to have to do a recovery which will also wipe any data on the notebook.
To run a recovery make sure it is powered off then power on, as soon as you power on you must tap the left Alt + F10 keys together at the same time, now timing is important and can take several attempts before you enter the recovery manager. Keep tapping the keys at approx every half a second or so and wait for a message at the bottom of the screen which will state " Windows is loading files" then you can stop tapping. A new screen may appear after that which will state " edit windows boot options: for windows setup or it may say acer e-recovery" if this screen appears then simply press the enter key, you will then enter the Acer e-recovery manager which will then ask you "How would you like to restore?" select the first option for a factory default reset, hope this helps.
this is normally either a virus or an error in the registry in windows your best bet is to either get a windows disk and run the repair sequence to make it so you can boot the computer up and get what files you need of the computer then reload the operating system or have somebody do it for you.
You can edit the boot.ini
OR go to control panel, double click on "system"
it will open system window. go to "Advance" tabs and
under startup and recovery there is a button "setting" click on that button.
it open startup and recovery windows.
if you click on edit, it will open notepad to edit boot.ini, if you arenot sure don't edit, just select the operating system that is working and change the time to 0 seconds. once you boot it will go to your windows directly without any option to choose which windows.
Boot your computer with the recovery CD In the Drive.
You should get the option ** Boot From CD**
highlight click Yes, and overwrite the O/S.
This will re-install windows over your existing version, replacing any corrupt-deleted-missing Files.
