When you boot up to computer, look for an instruction that says hit a certain key or key combination to enter erecovery console, something like that. It may be ALT+F10. Thing is, look for this info when booting up, as it will give you a bit of time to hit it if needed.
Once you enter the recovery console, look for an option that will let you create recovery DVD's, so have a few DVD-R or DVD+R discs around. Once you create those, you can use them to restore your computer at any time.
If by chance you don't see the option to create the DVD's, then you will have to follow through with the option to restore your computer by way of the dedicated partition on the hard drive, which was put there just for this reason. Don't worry, just keep following the instructions and you will restore the machine to factory settings in no time.
I do suggest that you create the DVD's in case the recovery partition is damaged in the future.

Hope that helps.

First try to perform windows restore using the original Windows cd.
Boot from the cd and in Windows setup, choose to restore (not to re-install/ fresh installation).
If cannot then, when you first bought it you should have a recovery cd or similar. You should read the manual.
If you only have a drivers cd (motherboard, sound, vga/graphic adapter, LAN, etc.) and Windows cd then last attempt is to re-build/re-install windows from beginning. Don't forget to backup.

Will acer extensa 5230E reinstallation cds contain windows


A driver restore disk works with a windows disk to return your Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 back to the original factory setup.

Once windows has installed you put this disk into the drive as soon as windows gives you a found new hardware dialog box. Once inserted the Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 will automatically find all the drivers and also install most of the original factory software. BEWARE OF GENERIC DISKS ! All Drivers and factory software are operating system specific so you must have the correct software and drivers for your Acer Extensa 5230EWindows 7. Some of the drivers you would find on this Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 Restore Disk are listed below. Not all will be applicable to your system as this list is for information only for Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 Restore Disk.

THIS DISK DOES NOT CONTAIN AN OPERATING SYSTEM!
YOU WILL NEED TO INSTAL Windows 7 FIRST OR USE AN EXISTING INSTALL.

Hope this helps

Acer extensa 4620z whe i shutdown laptop it's shutdown but the screen power still remains on untill i hold the power button to off , please help me


It seems that your computer needs to have a reinstall of your original setup, because the driver that tells it to shut down is not cooperating. Hopefully you have your original dvd/cd.

This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software

Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.

Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during POST.

To start the recovery process:
1 Restart the system.

How to restore acer extensa5220 notebook back to its original set


From Acer direct

The other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts

Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:

“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”

If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.

If you see this:
“Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”

Then it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on your screen after a short pause..

In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.

The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs.

This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine.
If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.
