Unfortunately, there is only one solution and that is to reload your operating system. If you don't already have recovery discs, you can most likely find them here. Good Luck!

Can i use a 3tb hard drive on acer z5610 running windows 7


The simplest way would be to reformat as NTFS. Use the advance options to delete and re-create partions.

GPT requires EFI and there is some debate whether Win 7 can be installed. I have not tested yet and quite frankly I would not waste the time and effort. Your hard drive and partition size is well within requirements. Good Luck

when you turn the unit on hit Alt+F10. This will access the acer recovery partition from which you can restore. This is provided you didn't replace the Hard drive or wiped the drive yourself

The problem is I'm trying to reformat my hard drive. When I open the window that says "delete partition" it is not highlighted, so I can't complete the reformating.


The partitions are listed in neumeric order. Enter the number (1 or 2) the the partitin is listed as, and the partition will be deleted.
Please note, you will lose EVERYTHING in that partition and you will have to reformat the partition.

How to reformat my MSI notebook?


You need to have an valid Operating System installer CD/DVD. This could be a Windows or Linux installer or whatever Operating System that you prefer.

  1. Turn your laptop on.
  2. Open the CD drive and load the CD Installer.
  3. Reset your laptop to manually reboot it. If you loaded the CD fast, this step is no longer required.
  4. The setup program will then load. Follow the onscreen procedure.
  5. At the point of selecting the hard disk drive, choose "Delete Partitions" to completely remove all data.
  6. After deleting partitions, create new partitions for your hard disk. You can choose to divide your hard disk capacity into 2 or more partitions depending on your requirements.
  7. Format the root partition now (Drive C) to continue the installation.

I inherited an inspiron mini but my aunt left her password in. I don't know the password. What can I do?


if you are willing to lose the data you can reformat the computer with these steps:

1) insert the windows installation disc
2) boot from cd
3) when you get to the hard drive manager part delete all of the hard drive partitions (it should make one partion)
5) format the one partition
6) install windows to that partition

Unmountable boot volume acer 3000 aspire


Unmountable boot volume is Hard Disk Partition lost.
There are two partition on hard disk, one is NTFS & FAT32, if this two partition are damage or lost, then you have lost your data also.
Reformat on it are the best way result and put new windows system.

You can recover your pictures after reformat by using a program RECOVERMYFILES, this program even when your windows system got reformatted can recover all of it.

Good luck!

Hello my name is Michael. I would appreciate some help i have an acer aspire 5920 ad would like to reformat it however when i start the computer in any mode including safe mode it says start up repair...


Hi Michael,
Its possible to reformat your hard drive by using a DOS boot floppy disk or CD. You can create this disk on another pc then boot your pc from this disk. It will boot your pc to a DOS prompt, usually "C:>" from there you can create partitions, delete partitions and format the hard drive. The command for creating partitions is FDISK.exe. Make sure your boot disk has the FDISK.exe command on it.
Let me know if you require any further assistance regarding this.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Partitioning


The partition was most likely set up by the recovery as a tool for future recoveries. The only way to get rid of the partition is to reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. Partitions can only be created or deleted during the operating system set up process.

Use one of the following free software packages.
Backup all your data before partitioning, as the hard disk may need reformatting (and reinstalling Windows) after partitioning.
