    Sometimes just reseating the drive will take care of the PXE warning.

*** Remove any external monitor as it will make entry into BIOS utility and recovery process difficult. ***

The following is from pages 29-30 of the 52-page D250 UserGuide.pdf located in folder C:\Book

I want to restore my computer to its original settings without recovery CDs.
This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps below to rebuild your C: drive. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option.
Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.
1. Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.
2. Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.
3. Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.
Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press during POST (Power On Self Test).
To start the recovery process:
1. Restart the system.
2. While the Acer logo is showing, press + at the same time to enter recovery process.
3. Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.
Important! This feature occupies 6 GB in a hidden partition on your hard disk.

SOURCE: Acer Recovery management Error code:

I assume you are getting this error when trying to alt+F10 to put the machine to factory original.
If you can boot into windows, try to use the acer e-recovery software to create some restore media, although it sounds like the image stored in the restore partition may be damaged. If making the discs doesn't fix it, call Acer and get some restore media sent to you (free if you're in warranty) or about $50 if out of warranty. You can also reinstall windows with an OEM cd/dvd using the keycode on the bottom of the laptop, but you will have to download drivers manually and will lose some software provided by acer. Acer restore discs are the best/easiest option though. Well worth the cost of discs if you can afford it. Let me know if this helps or not. I am an Acer authorized technician.

The NASTY "CRC" Error ......Tackle IT

What does CRC(Cyclic Redundancy Check “error”) mean?

There are plenty of technical resources on the Web that discuss cyclic redundancy checks (CRCs). Most times you won't need to worry about this technobabble. That is, until one it day it suddenly appears and you think - what the hell does that mean? In simple terms, a CRC is bit of mathematics used to ensure that your data is OK when being transfered. It's a checking procedure that quickly identifies when data has been damaged. If you get this message, it means that the file being read by your PC or software is corrupted. However, it does not mean all the data is lost forever. When data is transfered, it is usually in small blocks and each block is given a CRC value. If something goes wrong with the data between the time it leaves the source and arrives at its destination, the CRC sent at the source will no longer match the one that is calculated when the data arrives - this is when the cyclic redundancy check error will appear.

The most common time you will see the cyclic redundancy check error message is when trying to read data from a damaged CD or DVD. Just before it appears, your CD/DVD drive will probably grind and whirl away - your PC may also become a little slugglish.

Less frequent causes are the result of system crashes, and buggy software (hello Microsoft), incomplete downloads (often identified by the misleading message 'This is not a valid Windows file', 'This is not a valid win32 application' or 'Corrupt Zip file'). If this problem happens frequently with downloads, try using a download manager.

For CDs and DVDs, the problem is a little different. Normally, when CD/DVD drives get a CRC message from a disc, they try to read the disc again - hence the grinding sound. After several failed attempts, they give up and display the redundancy check error. The problem can be hardware (loose cables, failing drive), software or damaged media. In most cases checking and cleaning the disc is the easiest way to overcome the problem. If different clean discs produce the same error, it is likely to be a hardware issue (check the discs in another drive). Another common cause of these errors is poorly burnt CDs and DVDs - especially those that had numerous or severe buffer underuns. USB burners suffer from this problem when the burn speed is too high (generally above 4X-8X)

If the discs are damaged, you'll probably need a recovery tool to get back your data. CDCheck 3 will work for CDs and DVDs. First it will check the media, and then you have the option to recover the files. It's free for personal use and has saved many people heartache when it comes to recovering lost digital images and videos from damaged CDs.

How to find cyclic redundancy check ?

Cyclic Redundancy Check
The cyclic redundancy check, or CRC, is a technique for detecting errors in digital
data, but not for making corrections when errors are detected. It is used primarily
in data transmission. In the CRC method, a certain number of check bits, often
called a checksum, are appended to the message being transmitted. The receiver
can determine whether or not the check bits agree with the data, to ascertain with
a certain degree of probability whether or not an error occurred in transmission. If
an error occurred, the receiver sends a "negative acknowledgement" (NAK) back
to the sender, requesting that the message be retransmitted.
The technique is also sometimes applied to data storage devices, such as a
disk drive. In this situation each block on the disk would have check bits, and the
hardware might automatically initiate a reread of the block when an error is
detected, or it might report the error to software.
The material that follows speaks in terms of a "sender" and a "receiver" of a
"message," but it should be understood that it applies to storage writing and reading
as well.
The CRC is based on polynomial arithmetic, in particular, on computing the
remainder of dividing one polynomial in GF(2) (Galois field with two elements)
by another. It is a little like treating the message as a very large binary number, and
computing the remainder on dividing it by a fairly large prime such as
Intuitively, one would expect this to give a reliable checksum.
A polynomial in GF(2) is a polynomial in a single variable x whose coefficients
are 0 or 1. Addition and subtraction are done modulo 2-that is, they are
both the same as the exclusive or operator. For example, the sum of the polynomials

x3 + x + 1 and
x4 + x3 + x2 + x

When i install,bluetooth setup in my desktop that time a information came like cyclic redundancy check problem.

Cyclic Redundancy Error comes when the source device like a computer calculates data and add the size of the information and sends it to the destination device. The destination device sees the size of the information and recalculate the size of the information and compare the two if they do not match the cyclic redundancy problem is reported because the information data has gone corrupt during the transit from the source to destination device. It can be a wrong configuration or packet collision. If it is due to packet collision the error can be over come by resending data multiple times.

Please check with the another disk if the same issue is coming with different disks this is a ODD issue otherwise the disk is faulty as cyclic redundancy means the data could not red from the sector of the disk.

Cyclic Ewdundancy

cyclic redundancy means the actual data comosing the file has been corrupted. dvd shrink sometimes corrupts data when the compression is turned too high. CRC errors are problems in the base Hexidecimal coding used above binary coding that the proccessor uses.

Basically, you need to get new data cause that one is gone.
