Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
I was trying to do a system restore to factory settings. I was away on deployment when my wife bought the computer and she never made recovery discs. I kept getting an error when I tried doing the restore through windows vista. So, I rebooted hit alt + f10 to enter erecovery that way. I still got an error trying to do the system restore that way. Now every time i reboot it goes straight back to the erecovery and won't let me get back to my desktop. I'm running vista. I haven't recently added any hardware or software. I tried flashing the cmos. Went into bios tried setting everything back to default in case anything was changed. I'm running out of ideas and i need my computer back.
Borrow any Vista install DVD and boot from it
Follow it through until you are asked if you want to install Vista or Repair your Computer
Select repair and let it do its thing - it may work
Failing that its a full reinstall by the sounds of it
If it does not offer you the initial boot option then look on the boot screen for the boot options key - probably F11 or F12 - and press that during initial boot to obtain the boot options screen
