Window could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ vgaoem.fon it says I can hit "r" on the first screen after putting in the original set up CD-ROM which I do not have... so what do I need to do?

I believe this is a double post. I answered the other post too.
Follow the prompts carefully, you may or may not lose your data.
At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 (at the same time you would press F2 to enter the BIOS) to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery.
· The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD.
· The password by default is 000000 (6 zeros) and it is displayed when you are asked for the password.
· Users are able to change the password in this mode for eRecovery only.
· The system can recover from the hidden image on the hard drive (PQService partition) or from CD/DVD media.
· It is possible to reload from the factory style CDs/DVD or the snapshots that the Windows version of eRecovery creates.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I formated my hardrive and lost my operating system drivers.


are you buy it with preinstalled operating system? if yes, there should be a recovery partition, in a hidden partition. for acer aspire one, you can try this: press alt + F10 and then turn on your computer while pressing the buttons, when its on BIOS screen, release the button, if you pressing time is correct, you will enter the recovery mode. Good Luck.

Many Bad Sectors fat32, trying recovery disk


Hi,

It sounds like your HDD is faulty, usually a hardrive can operate with bad sectors but still a risk.

My best advice would be to get a new HDD and recover back on to the new one, even if you did manage to recover onto your current one you may still have problems in the future.

I usually only allow a HDD to fail S.M.A.R.T tests 3 times over any given period and then I just replace them.

Thanks

Two solutions would be to either restore your pc to before the problem started,using system restore on accesories menu, or use the recovery cd or the recovery folder Acer laptops usually have on the 'D' drive and re-install usb controllers and drivers.
