Hey Matt here. Have you tried connacting the producer or supplier of the laptop. Usually a disc should come with it and they should give one for free. If it was them that you got off that never arrived tell them to send it by registered post and that you will not be paying for it as it should have come with in. Hope this helps. Matt.

Make recovery disk for acer extensa 4630z?

If you have precious files on your HDD and it's inaccessible at present I would download a copy of Puppy Linux and burn it to CD (or buy one off ebay for 2 euros). Boot off this and browse to your HDD, copy files to a USB memory stick if you have one. I assume you've tried SYSTEM RESTORE in Windows and it isn't accessible or doesn't work. If this is so, you could try ebay for these extenza recovery disks. Failing that you should use your Windows installation disk to do a REPAIR INSTALL (Google for instructions). If you have not got one you could buy one from ebay for your OS but that could be costly. A cheaper way is to buy one of the many system restore disks available on ebay but you will risk having malware. Good Luck

How do I make a recovery disk?

Which operating system ?

there are some you can download

If you computer crashes and your hard drive fails, you can lose a lot of data and spend a great deal of time trying to find all your discs and re installing all of your information.

It can be very difficult to find and re-install your operating system if you do not have the original CDs that came with your computer.

But if you create a recovery CD for your computer, the restore process can be much faster and quite easy.

Put the blank CD in your CD writer.

Click on the Windows Start button.

Click on the Control Panel option.

Click on Backup Your Computer from under the System Maintenance section option.

Click on the Backup Your Computer button on the Backup and Restore menu.

Select your CD drive from the drop-down list and press the Next button.

Click the Start Backup button to begin the backup process.

you might need to use dvd rw depending on the size of the backup

If you do not have access to either disc: Windows 7 - Repair Disc download

a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.

b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click Next.

Note If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the Install Now prompt (Do not pick the Install Now option) instead choose the Repair your computer option located in the lower left of the dispay.

c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that Windows found problems with your computers startup options.
Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer ?

d) Click Repair and restart and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.

e) Click Next at the keyboard selection prompt and when the System Recovery Options screen appears verify that the Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows is selected.

Note that on your Dual Boot system there now should be only one operating system listed.
Click the Next button.

f) Now from the menu list select the Command Prompt option.

g) At the DOS prompt type the following three commands

bootrec.exe /fixmbr

bootrec.exe /fixboot (may return an Eliment not found message)

bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd

h) Close the command prompt window and click the Startup Repair option.

i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages Windows cannot repair this computer automatically and Startup

Repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive.
Ignore the Send/Dont send options.

J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Dont send window.

Next click on the View advanced options for system recovery and support option and from the main menu once again click Startup Repair.

This time the repair process may only that a few seconds and when prompted Startup Repair could not detect a problem, click Finish and run the Startup Repair option one more time, click Finish, and then remove the System Repair DVD and click Restart.

I have a toshiba satelite P205-S6257, I have bootmgr missing and when I press ctrl+alt+del to restart is not working, is coming back to the same screen and message. and is not recognizing the recovery...


There's a possiblity that the problem is with the HDD due to bad sectors, you will need to reimage the HDD or better replaced it just to make sure. By the way, how did you run the recovery disc? You need to boot from the disc itself,try putting in the disc inside the drive then turn off the computer, the turn it back on then keep on tapping F12, some other laptop automatically boot from the disc but others need to choose first the boot sequence, you will see there boot from HDD, ODD, and LAN, you need to choose ODD then press enter, there will be a message saying that you need to press any key immediately, press any key immediately because one you miss that, you will need to start from the scratch again.

Hope this will help...
