Use ur supplied recovery disk. put the disk in cd/dvd rom and turn it on, the system boot sequence must be on "first boot cd". the rest restoring process will do the cd automatically.

It says this : Recorvery,your pc must be repaired! Error code: 0xc000000.You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you dont have any installation media(like a disc or usb de


WAIT!!

Everybody settle down! There's no need for violence!

(Listening to the background audio in the video, lol!)

Slowly take a deep breath.............OK, now slowly exhale.
Gently rub your temples a little bit.

(And GET that guy in the audio SOME help, lol!)

Better? OK.



YES. You will need the Restoration Disk. (Restore Disk, whatever)

http://easyhomepc.com/Sitemap

Really? Huh. Never heard of them.

Generally you want to get the Restoration Disk from THE computer manufacturer. Not the 'dealer'.

Do I assume it's Acer? (Due to the name on the monitor)

Now THAT, might be a problem.

(Get the guy in the background audio to get the disk, lol!
"What? SURE, here sir. Just settle down. Here's the disk!" )

New computer? Like...how old?
Less than 6 months, it should be covered.

No, not under Easyjack,....I mean Easy Home......but from Acer themselves.

http://www.acer-group.com/public/index/services.htm

Have the Serial Number off of the back of the computer, (Or up on the side of the computer tower), written down.
S/N = Serial Number

[ONLY give to an authorized Acer representattive.
Do NOT post on a worldwide forum ]

Turn on computer, install disk in optical drive tray. (CD/DVD drive)
When asked choose Repair.
Non-Destructive Installation.

Im trying resore my acer back to factory settings


Did you press 5 times

If you do NOT have a copy of this disc, skip to step 3 for further instructions. Once you restart your computer, a screen will appear with the words. Press Any Key to Boot From CD. Once you press a key, a screen will come up containing instructions to format your hard drive and restore the original factory settings. Follow the on-screen prompts to finish the installation. Once the restore is complete, remove your Recovery CD from the disk drive so that your computer does not try to boot from the CD again. Restart your computer to complete the restore. 3. If you do not have a System Restore disk, then your computer should have a recovery partition on your hard drive, separate from the main partition of the disk. Unplug all external devices and restart your computer. When the loading screen comes on with the Windows logo, press Alt+F10 together five times. This will bring up the system restore menu. Follow the on-screen prompts to restore your computer back to the factory settings Hope this helps.

I'd lik t restore my emacns e620 laptop to the original factory settings but I dont have the disk... can still do this?


Hi

I hope i am assumming that your emachine is an acer if so i think you can do this

start
all programs
acer
acer recovery
in there it should give you a few options to :-
restore back to factory settings
re install applications
and burn a recovery disk normally about 3 dvd,s
also to burn an applications disk 1 dvd

this is really worth doing because sometimes ones hard drive will crash
losing you the ability to then restore your operating system onto a new hard drive

please if you have the option do this before you try the restore
also try to save anything that you may of put onto your laptop that you want or need to keep
either burn them to disk or copy onto a pendrive or spare usb hard drive

also i think there may be an option to get into the recovery consol by
pressing the power up key as well as F10
some laptops are power key+alt+F10

good luck
please let us know if this has helped you
so that we may be able to help others

many thanks

many thanks

Acer Aspire 5100 back to factory settings


You may be able to hold F2 as you power up to open up the "setup" screen. There should be an option to restore to factory defaults on that screen.

Acer Aspire 3680 will not detect hard disk. In command prompt where should be, there is


Hi there,from the sounds of it this lovely little excercise is due to the hard drive failure,either that or no OS - XP disk is dead or damaged.
If you have the original restore disks from the 3680.
You could try reinstall and test from there,If your contents were important then try to remove hdd take to another computer and see if the drive recognises on the other machine,
If it allows access ,copy all your settings and documents straight away because it could die shortly,hopefully not tho....
Once the back up of your docs and settings and hdd back in your computer then use the restore disk to revive your machine,
This process wipes the C Drive and does a complete reinstall of all the required softwares and in the correct order too...
It should take 15-20 min to load onto the machine and about 40 minutes to reinstall all the RESTORE to Factory Defaults Settings.
Just let it do this process from start to finish and it should eject disk when done and reboot by itself.
when it starts up again it will be back to the windows activation screen and the ready to start loading up if your have the original restore disc,
Once your happy with it and its working,

CREATE A RESTORE POINT

How do I create a restore point?
START>ALL PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE<Select NAME this as

"FRESH INSTALL JAN 2009"

This will help you return to the point when everything was working,
If you should'nt encounter any more problems,

There may be a Hidden Partion on your hard drive that may allow you to restore from that.Then all thats needed doing is the bios settings will need to be changed to select the XP CD on bootup or the hidden partion on bootup then select save and reboot,It should be straight forward from there.

Just about finished,

Dont for get to do your windows updates for SP2 and then turn off the update functions.

And BACK UP the new install to DVD blank so you can restore
any other time you have issues

I hope this helps but that should cover itn for you,
If you need more help please let me know.

Thanks Misterdj

How do you go back to factory settings on a philips freevents x51 laptop?


If you cannot find the backup disks an option that you can do is system restore although it really depends on how long your last restore point is.

Go to start then run then type in MSCONFIG
after that click on Launch System Restore
Restore it to the oldest date. Luckily it will have the system checkpoint at the first time you used it.
