Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I just received an acer aspire one as a gift. it comes with a connection manager application disk and information about downloading windows. but i need an internet connection to download windows and can't get one. i don't have a cd rom drive or an external drive. i do have a desktop computer with everything i need on it. how do i load all these programs if i can't get an internet connection in the first place and it doesn't come with a cd rom drive? i have a wwan connection with my desktop but don't know how to hook the laptop up to that either. i'm lost! any help would be wonderful!
On most Acer laptops , you can run an eRcovery:
At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 (at the same time you would press F2 to enter the BIOS) to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery.
· The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD.
· The password by default is 000000 (6 zeros) and it is displayed when you are asked for the password.
· Users are able to change the password in this mode for eRecovery only.
· The system can recover from the hidden image on the hard drive (PQService partition) or from CD/DVD media.
· It is possible to reload from the factory style CDs/DVD or the snapshots that the Windows version of eRecovery creates.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
