How do i reboot my acer aspire 5732zg?

Turn on your PC and wait for the "Acer Splash Screen" to appear.

This is the screen that has the Acer logo and is one of the first screens you will see.

Press the "Alt" key and "F10" keys at the same time when you see the splash screen until you are brought to the "Windows eRecovery Options Screen."

Choose the Windows Installation option from the main screen.

You will be prompted so you are aware that all information currently on your drive will be lost.

Choose which Windows Operating system you want to overwrite.

Typically you will only have one Operating System and you can simply press the "1" key.

If you have, for instance, Linux as your first OS and Windows as your second OS, you will need to press the number that corresponds to the OS you are replacing.

Choose to partition your C:/ drive or whichever drive your Windows OS is installed on.

This will completely reformat your drive and install a fresh copy of Windows.

Allow the process to run and your drive will format, and then Windows will reinstall to your computer.

Request a recovery CD from Acer if the Alt + F10 option does not work.

You can find Acer Support Located using this link.

You will then follow the exact same steps as listed above after booting the computer with the CD in the drive.

Hope this helps.

Reinstalling the operating system will surely make your computer faster. Since you do not have Windows 7 disk and you do not have hardware driver for your laptop.

Well the first thing that you have to keep in mind before reformatting your hard drive is to ensure the backups of all driver devices on your laptop. Since you already reformatted, the best way is to look up the correct drivers for the Acer Aspire. I would start looking at the Acer site. Go to this site and scroll down to the audio driver.

Your hard drive is corrupted - virus, bad driver file, etc... You may need to reformat and re-install Windows or operating system. Before you do that, remove the harddrive and "slave" it on another computer to backup you data. The other computer should be able to discover the corrupted harddrive allowing you to do the backup. Then you can proceed with the repair or reformat.

Need to reformat

The software is on the computer on drive D. Instruction on how to do this are at the Acer website.

Now then ... don't do this ... you can always do this later.

Start removing the stuff you don't want through the ADD/REMOVE programs tool. Get rid of what you don't use then get this program "CClean" at and run it ... use the two tools on the left hand side. Run each two times ... reboot and run it again ...

That should make a significant difference in the operation of your computer ...

If after you have done this ... you still want to go back to zero ... post again and state that you have already tried CClean and you still want to start all over.

Thanks for your interest in
