Hello

You seem to know a bit about computer so I will give you a good detailed solution which might be of help. READ CAREFULLY

ASSUMPTION:

I guess that the main issue here is that your hard drive might be corrupted. I am also afraid that you might have erased or repartitioned your computer on a previous occasion if the recovery is not working. Please not that the Acer 5920 you mentioned has an automated system recovery system saved on to your hard drive. Did you by any chance Reformat the whole thing when you got the laptop? Because if thats the case and you removed the EISA partitions there is NO WAY you are going to get the recovery to work.

SOLUTION 1: USING RECOVERY CD's or DVD's

If you backed your system up when you first bought it and you created the CD's DVD's boot from them and recover the system that way. I am afraid that these will erase your C drive and will restore it to the original state when it was at time of backup. BEFORE all this you need to recover any data? In that case do the following:

1. remove the hard drive if you have important data.
2. Put it in a hard drive enclosure (which plugs in USB) and hook it up to another computer XP or VISTA doesn't matter both should work fine.
3. Then backup the folders you would like to make a copy of onto the hard drive of the other computer.
4. Then connect it back to the laptop (obviously make sure that when you remove and plug in this hard drive the laptop is off). And perform the recovery.

SOLUTION 2: If still all the above doesn't work.

If you do not need to backup anything there is no need to do the first 3 steps but you will need another computer

1. Do steps 1 to 3 above to make sure that you backup everything at least
2. Go to my computer on this to which you connected the drive computer Format the hard drive of the laptop (Making sure that before this step you backed up all the important data because you will lose it!)
3. Perform full format (this will take a while) and format it as NTFS, while formatting see if you can hear any funny noises. It could be a good sign that the hard drive is out. During format you should almost hear nothing. if you hear a repeated CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK type of noise. Get another hard drive and repeat the above 3 wsteps
4. Get hold of an XP or VISTA installation disk according to what you had on laptop
5. Go to acer website and download all the drivers for the laptop you have and burn them on CD. If you already have a driver disc of the laptop you can skip this step but make sure that you have everything you need on it
6. put hard drive back in Acer 5920
7. Boot from the installation disk XP or VISTA. HINT KEEP the SAME OS if you had XP install XP ... if you had VISTA install VISTA
8. When it asks for serial number look underneath the laptop and key in the serial number from the fancy label you have underneat. It should be a 20 numbers and letters separated by (e.g. xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx)
9. Follow instructions and perform a full install
10. Now install all the drivers you have on that disk. These are like small programs. Install one after the other until you install them all. Reboot when asked to reboot... Do not choose reboot later!
11. Phew by now you should have a laptop working again. Isntall office antivirus and antispyware software and GET BACK the data from the other machine.....

Received a blue crash screen, Alt,F10 for erecovery, showed copying files, then tried to reboot and shut down without completing reboot. Now when try to start, showes windows small window and moving dots...


You can use a torrent site like isoHUNT, to download a copy of the Acer OEM vista disc, this is a little illegal, but if you use your own Windows key from your COA sticker, it should register and activate ok.
You may have to download your drivers seperatly from from ACER.
You will need a torrent client like UTorrent, and the download could take a day or so

Acer aspire 5100 BL51 windows 7 wireless driver


You will have to navigate this site; enter 'notebook', 'Aspire', and scroll to 5100; after that, you will have to choose 32 bit or 64 bit. That being said, Acer does not support Windows 7 yet-you can try the Vista drivers; more often than not they will work. One note-I cannot tell just from the info you supplied whether you have the Atheros or Broadcom chip-You should be able to determine that in Device Manager.

I have a Acer Aspire 5315 series I need Vista software to get my system fixed from virus


First look for Acer recovery from your computer, there should be acer erecovery management program or similar on your computer that may have a option to burn recovery disks or to restore the computer automatically.

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 press on F10 repeatedly when you power on the machine, keep pressing every 2 seconds until acer recovery comes up, if it doesn't come up then your machine 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 -- https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=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

Hi,
Boot your computer with the recovery CD In the Drive.
You should get the option ** Boot From CD**
highlight click Yes, and overwrite the O/S.
This will re-install windows over your existing version, replacing any corrupt-deleted-missing Files.

My Acer aspire 5100


If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
