Download the recovery CD and device drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop the drivers you that require that matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

Operating system not found


No, you won't get the OS to automatically install on the new drive. The OS is not stored in the BIOS chip (or a similar permanent location inside the computer). You will need an OS install disc (not an upgrade disc). Windows Vista Home Premium or Basic was the original OS on most of the Acer Aspire 4530 series. Acer appears to have drivers for the system for XP through Windows 7 to get the hardware to work. You will need to have these most of these ready before you install your OS. Put them on a flash drive or optical disc using another computer.

This computer may work with Unix as well. However, driver issues may be a factor. You can try most versions of Unix from a CD (LiveCD) to test it out.

When you get a new hard drive, install it into the laptop. Then put the OS disk in the optical drive bay. Boot to the optical drive. Follow the directions for formatting the hard drive and installing the OS. (Of course you will need a drive that doesn't have a higher capacity than the BIOS supports.) The motherboard needs to recognize the drive.

If you find a member of a Windows User Group, they may have Windows install discs available. The license number on the label of your computer will probably work as your license key. (The key for a computer like this is locked to the CPU and motherboard; unless someone upgraded the OS to Windows 7 or downgraded to XP, this should be the key you need.) Use the information on the label to obtain the correct version of Vista (the Basic install disc may not work for installing Home Premium). You also need to match the 32-bit or 64-bit install disc (and the service pack you need).

I hope this helps.

(An Acer recovery disc wouldn't help you. Most of those are completely locked to the original hardware (including hard drive) and look for the recovery partition that was on that hard drive.)

I have replaced my hard drive but the back up discs I made are not working, I keep getting the error 'no partition'


You need to create a partition on your new hard disk and the format this partition as a NTFS partition.
You can use your Windows installation CD to create and format the hard disk and then install Windows plus the Acer laptop device drivers or quit Windows installation after formatting and then use your backup discs to restore your laptop.

How to install acer software without a cd. Iost the cd and now I cannot restore the system of my laptop.Pls.help.


You can try acer.com to get your System Restore CD and Device Drivers. You will most likely have to order the restore disc. This usually doesn't cost more than $50. You could also try finding someone who has a Windows installation disc of the same version you have in your computer. Install Windows from that disc and use the product key on the sticker that's on your computer when prompted for it by the installation disc program. Be sure to activate Windows once the installation is completed. It's not necessary to Register it though.

I need to reboot my acer laptop


Im presuming you mean you need to re-install windows. If so you really need to have the restore discs that came with the laptop, just pop in the system restore disc and follow the on screen instructions.

If you don't have the discs, then you may need to buy a new copy of windows from Microsoft. Although Acer may be able to help in these cases.
