Acer eRecovery management Restore system to factor default but I don't know the password


Locate and Unhide Hidden Rescue Partition
  • 1 Access the Diskpart command prompt. Acer stores custom eRecovery passwords on your computer in PQService, a hidden rescue partition. Locating this partition requires accessing the Diskpart utility from the command prompt. Diskpart allows you to run a scan on your hard drive and bring up hidden partitions. To access Diskpart, go to Start and type "cmd" in the search bar to bring up the black command prompt box, and then type "diskpart" at the prompt to switch to a Diskpart prompt. Depending on your computer, a new command prompt may open with the Diskpart prompt.
  • 2 Scan your computer configuration. At the Diskpart prompt, type "rescan" to run a system configuration check. When the scan finishes, you will receive a message informing you the scan is complete. At the command prompt, type "list disks" to bring up available disks and then type "select disk 0."
  • 3 Locate the hidden partition. At the command prompt, type "list partition" to view a list of partitions on your disk. Locate the partition with no name and a size of approximately 10GB. At the command prompt, type "select partition (number)."
  • 4 Determine the partition type and unhide the partition. The hidden PQService partition will be either a type 27 or a type 12 partition. If the partition is type 27, unhide it by typing "set id=07 override," and if a type 12, then unhide it by typing "set id=0B" at the command prompt.
  • 5 View the PQService partition. Return to the disk containing PQService by typing "select disk 0" at the command prompt, and then type "list volume" to view the contents of the disk. PQService will be visible in the list, preceded by a number. Type "select volume (number)" and then assign PQService a new drive letter so you will be able to open and view it from your computer interface window. At the command prompt, type "assign letter=f."
Reset eRecovery Password
  • 1 Open PQService. Navigate to the drive containing PQService. Find the file "aimdrs.dat." Right-click on the file and select "Open with" and then "Textpad," "Notepad" or another text editor you prefer.
  • 2 Open the file and find the password. Open the file with your text editor and locate the eRecovery password. Look for a line that reads, "Password=password name," "Hint=the password hint." Write down the password and close the file.
  • 3 Open eRecovery using the recovered password and follow the instructions to create a new password.

Toshiba satellite - Letter "N"


First check to see if NumLock is turned on. This is usually indicated by a LED somewhere either above the keyboard or possibly at the front of the machine. If it is currently on, you will want to toggle it to OFF in order to type in your password. This is usually done by pressing the blue FN key located at the lower left corner of your keyboard, along with one of the function keys at the top of the screen. I believe on Toshiba laptops, this should be FN + F11, but check the keys themselves. Look for a blue picture, usually of a calculator. Holding the FN key down and then pressing this key should turn off NumLock and allow you to type the password.
Note: It is also possible that the 'N' key on your keyboard has gone bad. If this is the case, open the On Screen Keyboard, accessible through Start > All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access, and type your password using this.
I hope this helps!

NTLDR is missing this is the message i get then it says press any key to restart when u do nothing happens


Hi,
remove all the external devices plugged into your computer. and try to restart. if it does not work,
You need to have your Windows XP disk with you to resolve the problem. You just need to copy it directly from the Operating system CD. The NTLDR is responsible for loading Windows so if its is missing or damaged, there's no way you can load Windows back unless you copy it from the CD to your computer.
follow these steps:
1. insert the Windows XP disk in your computer
2.Restart your computer and press f12 to open up the boot menu
3. Select CD/DVDor ODD from the options and repeatedly tap the enter key until you see the "windows is loading files" message.
4. select the option to repair your computer (letter R)
(A command prompt will open)
5. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and press enter.
6. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password. (leave it blank if you do not have a password)
7.type the following:
copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\ (press enter)
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\ (press enter)
(letter e corresponds to the drive letter of your CD/DVD drive, change it if you have a different letter assigned to that drive. for example: Your DVD drive is drive F, instead of typing "copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\",type "copy f:\i386\ntldr c:\")
8. after succesfully copying the files, type in exit or quit and reboot the computer and allow it to reboot normally.

Hope this helps

When typing along the keyboard qwertyuiop, the keys that have numbers will type numbers instead of letters,uio will type 456. If you hold the FN key in it will then type type letters, how do I correct this...


This means that NUM LOCK is set to on. All you have to do is to press the Fn key and then locate the NumLock key and press it. The num lock is usually also highlighted with the same color as the Fn key.

Please comment back if you still have issues. I will be glad to assist you further.

The num lock key controls letters on regular keyboard.


Let Number key stay off then you could use normal 1234567890 that is between QWERTYUIOP and F1-F12

Letter


The letter "H" on your keyboard got stuck and it's like pressed down all the time. You can pop out the key then clean it. If the issue is resolved, you should not hear the beeping sound anymore when you boot up the unit. Or better yet, if your under warranty, contact Toshiba, 1-800-457-7777 and they'll be blad to repair your keyboard.

Hope this helps.
