Acer Aspire 5315 has a restore partition to set it back to factory settings, which will keep your windows intact too, but reset everything like you just purchased it.

First boot up the computer and press F2 to enter the bios, make sure that D2D recovery is enabled. Then exit and press Alt + and tap F10 when the manufacturers name appears for example HP, Tiny, Hewlett Packard etc.. etc.. screen appears on boot. This will open the recovery program. Before you can run the program it will ask you for the password. This will be the password you chose when you first got you laptop. You may have chosen your user name password or left it blank. If you left it blank just press enter, if you did enter a password you will need to remember it, or try the word admin.

Once the system has been restored it will take time running a few checks, so be patient.

Also this will restore C:drive only, so the good thing is anything you have saved on D: drive will remain intact.

I hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 5315 micro dont work after installing Windows 7 :(


Hello rudifuhr37,

There might be a hardware compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the microphone driver. The following two web sites might offer information that can better help to find a possible solution.

1). The Microsoft Windows 7 Hardware Compatibility List. It can only be viewed with Internet Explorer.
http://windows7news.com/2009/09/20/windows-7-hardware-compatibility-list/

2). The Acer support Windows 7 eligible systems link shows all the acer computers that are fully compatible with windows 7. (Acer Aspire 5315 is NOT in this list !):
http://www.acer.com/windows7upgrade/eligible.html

Keyboard letter not working


Disabling just a single key on Windows is possible, but it is highly unlikely that a computer technician could have gone to Control Panel to remap the keyboard.

More likely, one of the keyboard switches is broken, and the A letter is not working anymore. This happens quite commonly, and when the problem occurrs, the keyboard will be replaced.

You can find out if problem is hardware or software going to CMOS settings, and chosing to set a password. Then setting BIOS password AAA. If the A letter works in there, then the problem is software, and it can be fixed reinstalling Windows, if A key does not work in BIOS settings, then the keyboard must be replaced.

The keyboard for an Acer 5315 is not an expensive part, and can be purchased for less than $20.

If a repair job had recently been done, and the laptop came back withthe keyboard problem, try calling back the repairman, and insisting for having the repair done at a reduced fee.
