Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook

1 Answer

I really NEED mbrwrdos.exe for my Acer!

I have overwritten the mbr and need to restore the Acer speacial mbr. The problem is that the only file i have is mbrwrwin.exe and that can only be run from Windows, which I can't boot.

When I do a recover from the CD it says that the operating system is not found so I guess the recovery CD doesn't write a new MBR either. So guys, I NEED that file! plz!

    i can't get to the point where you tap f8. It just pops up that there is no OS.

    the hdd works fine, xp installs fine and everything, it's just the mbr. I need to write the special acer mbr.

    Could someone email mbrwrdos.exe to me?

Have you tried booting in safe mode? Repeatedly tap F8 while booting and you will beprompted asking if you want to enter safe mode then allow it to load;

Furthermore you could remove the Hard Drive and put it into another computer providing it is a matching connection with the other machine e.g. Sata - In the event it is a Hard Drive failure which by the description you have given is a distinct possibility you can send it to the manufacturer for data recovery.

I hope this was of some help ;)

I accidently installed windows 8 pro on my Acer aspire E 15 which already had windows 8.1. Now how do I restore my laptop back to its original windows 8.1?


Once you install other version of windows Operating system without formatting, your Operating System and files before would goes to drive C:\windows.old folder and you can backup your files there by opening users folder, but you cant restore your system to your old 8.1 version once you overwritten it ,But you can fix this by reformatting your laptop/netbook or desktop using your original 8.1 OS installer or contact your acer aspire distributor for genuine installer, but don't forget to backup your files at folder i mentioned above.

Acer Aspire 6920 Restarts in Normal mode and works only in safe mode


Sounds like the MBR ( boot files) are corrupted. Try formatting the hdd before you instal again. I'm sure you have a restore sector on the hdd in which case, if you have done anything to that then you'll need to have the restore disc set which usually comprises of the restore disc and the drivers disc. Either way....just make sure you format c and not d which is usually the resore partition. Good luck

You probably have a mbr virus..

Download The following iso listed below. It is the latest version of the Kaspersky rescue disk. You need to burn it to a CD with a program like Imgburn (Which is also FREE like the iso file). Then you need to boot from the CD and run the scanner. It should fix you right up.

You may have a Virus, try a factory restore. As you know, the Acer computers and those of other manufacturers are now delivered with a system of restoration installed in a hidden partition of your hard disk. This system launches out while pressing keys ALT+F10 simultaneously. And sometimes for various reasons this system ceases functioning.
The first cause often comes owing to the fact that function D2D Recovery is disable in the bios (menu principal).

The solution : enable the function and try to press keys ALT+F10 during the starting of the computer.

The second cause : in this case hidden partition PQSERVICE was erased or damaged, or you replaced the disc and in this case it is not present.

The solution : If you did not previously make a backup of your system by making an image disc. It will not be possible to use the D2D recovery. Your only hope will be to have in your possession Acer Recovery CD/DVD.

And the third causes : the Acer Master Boot Record (MBR)was damaged or replaced by non-Acer MBR. As long as partition PQSERVICE is present or that you can put the hand on the necessary Acer files you can reinstall the MBR of Acer.

The solution :

First method : on a functional Windows system:

1 disable the D2D recovery option of the bios.
2 open a Windows session with an account administrator.
3 Download, unzip and launch partedit32(registration required for download).
markymoo: ptedit32


4 Identify the Pqservice partition by its size (at the bottom of the partedit window there is a partition information box) it is a small sized partition approximately 2 to 6 Go.Once made change the type of your partition into 0C and save. Restart and open a session with an administrator account, you should be able to navigate to the PQservice partition. Seek these two files mbrwrdos.exe and rtmbr.bin once localised open a command prompt and launch this command mbrwrdos.exe install rtmbr.bin, this will install the Acer MBR. Close the command prompt window restart again Windows go into the bios and reactivate the D2D recovery. Now ALT+F10 should launch Acer recovery at the starting of the computer.

Second method : On a nonfunctional Windows system.

For that you must use a Linux distribution (for me Mandriva provided all the tools necessary).

1 Boot on the Mandriva install CD/DVD the boot menu will give you the possibility to repair or to restore the Windows boot loader.
2 If that is not enough launch an installation of linux(this will be an occasion to test this terrible OS) and choose LILO as boot loader(a boot menu that allow you to choose between several operating systems) once finished the installation. Restart your computer in the boot loader menu system you will have at least 2 Windows options the first generally point to PQservice choose it and you will boot directly into acer D2D recovery. __________________

My system crashed. Won't reinstall windows


Do you need anything that is stored on the crashed hard drive? If so, you need to get an adapter for the drive and connect it to a desktop pc as the 'd:' disk. then copy any files you can access that you need saved.
Re-install the drive into the laptop, use "FDISK /MBR" from a floppy drive or a USB drive set up as a boot disk to re-partition it, and install the master boot record, and then boot the CDrom to install your operating system afresh.
The error message you are getting is caused by the 'restore' program trying to use the C: disk programs, and they are not there. I think you may have a bad hard drive, as usually the programs will be found.
You need to find out if the disk is really really bad or just needs to be re-formatted. Follow the above steps to determine if you need a new drive or not.

My acer laptop is not starting , i am switching on the start button the green light is comming but the windows are not starting


Today's machines require we make our own or order them. Let's see if Acer has some boot recovery method but first, I'm going to write as if there is no issue about losing files on the machine.

Try the ALT+F10 key

First of all you must be aware that some of the operations to come can cause irreversible change on your hard disk, I recommend to you and I will never make it enough make a backup of your system before launching you in any hazardous operation.

Any damage and/or modification done on your system will be under your whole responsibility. The following procedures were done on a Acer Aspire 5102wlmi and some also functioned on a Dell Inspiron 9400/1705.

As you know, the Acer computers and those of other manufacturers are now delivered with a system of restoration installed in a hidden partition of your hard disk. This system launches out while pressing keys ALT+F10 simultaneously. And sometimes for various reasons this system ceases functioning.

The first cause often comes owing to the fact that function D2D Recovery is disable in the bios (menu principal).

The solution : enable the function and try to press keys ALT+F10 during the starting of the computer.

The second cause : in this case hidden partition PQSERVICE was erased or damaged, or you replaced the disc and in this case it is not present.

The solution : If you did not previously make a backup of your system by making an image disc. It will not be possible to use the D2D recovery. Your only hope will be to have in your possession Acer Recovery CD/DVD.

And the third causes : the Acer Master Boot Record (MBR)was damaged or replaced by non-Acer MBR. As long as partition PQSERVICE is present or that you can put the hand on the necessary Acer files you can reinstall the MBR of Acer.

The solution :
First method : on a functional Windows system:
1 disable the D2D recovery option of the bios.
2 open a Windows session with an account administrator.
3 Download, unzip and launch partedit32(registration required for download).
4 Identify the Pqservice partition by its size (at the bottom of the partedit window there is a partition information box) it is a small sized partition approximately 2 to 6 Go.Once made change the type of your partition into 0C and save. Restart and open a session with an administrator account, you should be able to navigate to the PQservice partition. Seek these two files mbrwrdos.exe and rtmbr.bin once localised open a command prompt and launch this command mbrwrdos.exe install rtmbr.bin, this will install the Acer MBR. Close the command prompt window restart again Windows go into the bios and reactivate the D2D recovery. Now ALT+F10 should launch Acer recovery at the starting of the computer.

Second method : On a nonfunctional Windows system.
For that you must use a Linux distribution (for me Mandriva provided all the tools necessary).

1 Boot on the Mandriva install CD/DVD the boot menu will give you the possibility to repair or to restore the Windows boot loader.

2 If that is not enough launch an installation of linux(this will be an occasion to test this terrible OS) and choose LILO as boot loader(a boot menu that allow you to choose between several operating systems) once finished the installation. Restart your computer in the boot loader menu system you will have at least 2 Windows options the first generally point to PQservice choose it and you will boot directly into acer D2D recovery.

The last solution is the simplest one, just note that during the Linux installation you will have to resize your Windows partition to create a place for a new Linux partition it is the most perilous part because irreversible, therefore take your precautions at this time.

The might be a problem with MBR. What brand of HDD you have there might be bootable image of software on the manufacturers website that can fix the problem. If you are using windows, then boot from the Installation CD and type fixmbr in the recovery console, this might work, but be careful with MBR.

D2d recovery


Send me an e-mail and I will send you the fix! If you can't downloadload it from the below link. I had the same problem. The mbr was replaced, you have to add RTMBR.BIN to the MBR and it will work again. As long as you can get on your desktop and run this bat file you will repair the D2D again. Took me an hour to learn what was wrong, It works 100% though.

 

I have the Aspire 5610Z with the 2GB 533 mhz memory Stock.
