Acer travelmate 4200 SMART hard disk problem

I lost the disks I made when I first got the computer so I can't do a setup or copy the things off my hard drive. I closed my laptop while playing a game and now it says my hard disk may be messed up.

Your file system might get corrupted when you did not shutdown the computer properly. If you really need to close the laptop while doing something, then you might want to adjust power properties, so that the computer do not shutdown when you close.
For your hard drive problem, do the recommended action, by scanning your hard drive for problems. It will fix the problems.

How do I re-format Acer 4200 TravelMate hard drive?


Windows Reinstallation Disk option:

Insert Windows Reinstallation disk into tray, Boot to CD/DVD-ROM by pressing F12 at initial boot screens, delete existing Windows partition, re-create partition, and then follow steps to reinstall Windows. This will lead you to an option for formatting hard drive. I recommend choosing the full format versus the quick, from this point you can let windows install, or just shut the computer down when the format finishes. You will have to watch the progress, though, if you don't want the install to commence.


Boot disk option:

For XP, 95, 98, or ME, follow the instructions at this MS article page. It will walk you through creating a boot disk that will allow you to format.

You will need a floppy disk or CD

Smart disk programme


Back up your data as soon as possible so when the hard disk actually fails you won't lose your data.
When this happens you will need to buy a new hard disk and re-install Windows and you can copy your data back onto the new hard disk.

Full factory reset


If the PC came with a recovery disk, just simply start the computer with it in the disk drive and it will have the option to "start from scratch" or the like. It will take everything back to the way it was when you first bought it.

Now, some laptops do not come with recovery disks. In this case, you'll need a windows disk with the CD-key for that version. Start the computer with that disk in the drive and just follow the prompts. It will give you the option to upgrade or fix windows, or to install windows. Choose to install windows and format the C:\ drive when it asks you if you'd like to format. It will then erase everything on the hard disk by formatting and continue to install a fresh copy of windows.

Be forwarned.. Windows installs are like watching grass grow; be prepared to have at least an hour of time to do the job. If there's any specific questions you have about it, or even a worry or the like; please feel free to ask. :)
