    Acer Desktop and Laptop OS/Windows Recovery.

    First look for Acer recovery from your computer, there should be acererecovery management program or similar on your computer that may havea option to burn recovery disks or to restore the computerautomatically.


    if you don't have that option in your start menu or you can't locate the software from your computer Then try the recovery partition method in the start up of your machine.

    Acer machines should have a build in recovery, hold down ALT and presson F10 repeatedly when you power on the machine, keep pressing every 2seconds until acer recovery comes up, if it doesn't come up then yourmachine probably doesn't have that option, the laptops mostly have it.

    If you are unable to do any of the above then you may be able to order recovery discs from ACER --

    If that link doesn't work, copy it to your addressbar and press enter.

    If you end up with no way to restore or no restore media, you would have to get your hands on a windows installation cd.

    I've written instructions for how to install windows XP, Home, pro, etc. windows Vista, and windows 7.

    You can find those instructions here
    XP -

    VISTA and 7 -

    Note, if the recovery asks for a password the defaut is 000000 if this does not work, then please read my data recovery tip using ubuntu, you will have to mount the hidden pqservice partition with ubuntu, there will be a dat file inside the partition, most likely on the root, open it with any text editor and the password should be inside.

    I've had to recover the password a few times, it might be on the root or in another folder, inside a dat file.

    My computer is saying that the system is not fully installed and all I want to do is to resite it to its factory settings

    Which operating system ?????.....
    The HP Recovery Partition that comes pre-installed on most new HPs is like built-in insurance if your system becomes unstable or fails.
    If the problem is severe enough, you may not be able to start the HP Desktop Recovery Manager from Windows but you can start it manually by following the steps below.

    Disconnect all peripheral devices and power on the computer.
    Press the F11 key after the computer first powers on to start the HP Recovery Manager.

    Follow the on-screen instructions to back up recoverable files on the hard drive to an external drive or media.
    Continue following the instructions to recover the hard drive to its original factory condition.
    Click "Finish" when the recovery is complete.
    Reconnect devices and reboot the computer.
    Reinstall software and update Windows and HP to current settings.

    Accessing the recovery partition on your HP Pavilion laptop allows you to restore your computer to speed it up, eliminate a virus or repair your Windows operating system.
    The Recovery Manager program makes it possible to restore your laptop to its settings as of a previous date or restore your computer to its original factory settings, which will erase all of your installed programs and personal data.

    Turn on or restart your HP Pavilion laptop.
    Press "F11" when the "Press <F11> for recovery" message appears during the HP Pavilion boot process.
    Select "Recovery Manager" from your list of recovery options and press "Enter."

    How to factory reset without recovery disk

    When you need to recover part or all of the files on your Acer Veriton M460 desktop computer, Acer makes it easy to do by offering a built-in recovery program called eRecovery Management.
    This option uses clean operating system files, usually stored on a separate partition of your hard drive, to correct errors or return the system to its original factory settings.
    You can also use this program to write separate hard copies of the eRecovery program onto CDs or DVDs in case of hard drive failure.
    Create Backup Disks

    If your M460 did not come with separate recovery disks, and many machines don't in recent years, you can create your own through "Acer's eRecovery Management" program located under the "Start" menu.
    Click on "Backup," select "Create Factory Default Disk" and follow the on-screen directions.
    The program will inform you of the number of CDs or DVDs you need and help you through their creation.
    Recovery with Disks
    To use your created disks for recovery, place the first disk in the optical drive and reboot the system. As it boots, hold the "ALT" key and tap "F10" repeatedly until the computer boots and you see a screen titled "Starting Acer eRecovery."
    You will see three options for recovery: to factory default, from user backup or from CD/DVD. Choose the option you desire and follow the on-screen directions to initiate the recovery sequence.
    Recovery from the Hard Drive

    Since Acer places the eRecovery Management program directly onto the computer, you can run the recovery option while in your desktop.
    Open the "Acer eRecovery Management" program under the "Start" menu and click "Restore." You can choose to restore the computer to factory defaults and lose all the personal data stored on the hard drive or only restore the operating system and leave your data intact.
    Select "Yes" on the confirmation screen and then "OK" to start the program.
    Recovery Vs. Restore
    When performing computer problem solving, the term "recovery" is often used interchangeably with the word "restore."
    In some cases, "recovery" can mean to simply correct problems, such as replacing corrupted operating system files with good ones.
    The term can also refer to "recovering" the system to its fresh-from-the-factory state, which is what "restore" means as well.
    Restore Drivers or Applications

    Acer's eRecovery Management program also offers the option to reinstall drivers or applications, which could become corrupted or damaged over time.
    This option allows you to replace the current drivers for your Windows operating system with the ones originally installed on your system.
    Under the "Restore" tab of the "Acer eRecovery Management" program, click "Reinstall Drivers or Applications" to see the content list and select the files you'd like to recover.

    Windows doesn't recognize recovery partition after os reinstall

    The issue you are having involves using multiple systems,...If your emachine came with vistan and you installed xp, you voided your warranty status...However remove your dual boot and stick to vista if you wanna keep your restore partition working properly.....On a side note theres usually conflict with running OEM OS's on dual boot...typically it doesnt work and if it does it doesnt work like you want it to! so here is what you can do..Call Emachine up and fib to them a bit (just alittle) tell them that you cought a nasty bug and it messed with your restore partition and now you cant restore your pc....request the factory programing discs (if you ask nicely they'll hook you up 99.99% of the time) you get the discs so you can reprogram the pc to factory spec if you ever wanted to. Now use a retail version of vista and a retail version of xp. and create your dual boot, feel free to remove your restore partition if you want (cause you have the factory programing discs if you wanna go back to stock stuff YAY) I hope this helps!

    Do you know where I can find a recovery disc for an HP 873n Media Center PC? I called hp and they don't have one.

    You are correct HP do not provide the recovery disks for this Media Center anymore.

    I've just about searched the net for anyone who may have recovery CD's for sale but no no avail.

    If you can still get into the operating system use HP Backup and Recovery Manager, its quick and user-friendly. To run, simply go to All Programs > HP Backup & Recovery > HP Backup and Recovery Manager. With HP Backup & Recovery Manager, file restoration is easy. To recover a deleted file, simply use the Restore Wizard.

    For a full system restoration, press the F11 key during boot up and then select "Recover PC" from the menu if there is a recovery partition available (sometimes you have to hold down Ctrl and hit the F11 key on boot up)

    Other than that you may have to purchase a Windows XP or Windows XP Media Center installation CD from a reputable store like PC World for example.

    Good luck.

    Starting the recovery from power up If Windows Vista cannot open and if the Recovery partition on the hard disk drive is functioning properly, you can perform a System Recovery by performing the following procedure:
    1. Turn off the computer.
    2. Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
    3. Turn on the computer.
    4. Do one of the following actions depending on how Windows Vista was installed:
      • If Windows Vista came pre-installed on your computer, press the F11 key repeatedly when the first screen opens (the logo screen), until Recovery Manager program opens on the screen.
      • If your computer was upgraded from Windows XP to Windows Vista, press the F10 key repeatedly when the first screen opens (the logo screen) until Recovery Manager program opens on the screen.
      If Recovery Manager does not open, a set of recovery discs is needed to perform a System Recovery. Follow the instructions listed in Starting the recovery from recovery discs .
    5. Click Next .
    6. On the screen that prompts for Microsoft System Restore select No , and then click Next .
    7. The Recovery Manager gives you the option of backing up your data files. Backing up your files is recommended. To back up your files select Yes , and then click Next . Follow the onscreen instructions. If you do not want to backup your files, select No , and then click Next .
    8. After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup. Then, turn off the computer, reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the computer.
    9. Before using the computer, update and protect it by reinstalling any virus and security software that was installed before the System Recovery.
    10. Reinstall any software applications that were added after puchasing the computer, and replace any files that were backed up.
