Question about Acer Aspire One D150-1587 Netbook

1 Answer

My erecovery management (PQservices) partition was destroyed by virus - can not get arepacement

If I try to install a different operation system it fails. If I use alt-f10 it fails. I have totaly wiped the drive - it still fails without the original OS. An updated os costs as much as a new netbook. Anyone have a clue as to where to get the software. All the net links I've tried have been scams, in a forien country, or turn out not to have it after I'vve jumped through all the loops.

The options are Acer Factory disk.Usually can be had, for a price ($20.00 or so) with your SN on your computer from ACER support. If you have "totaly wiped the drive" the software is gone. It will not restore/recover with the HDD "wiped". If you have a different OS it should load. A free OS can be found here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download Or take a look at this, you have to purchase a product key : http://www.tipandtrick.net/2008/original-msdntechnet-windows-xp-with-sp3-integrated-retail-vl-cd-iso-images-leaked/ OR http://www.tipandtrick.net/2008/windows-xp-sp3-kb936929-standalone-update-package-and-iso-images-official-microsoft-download-links/

Hi there
You want to restore your computer to its original settings without

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 To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during boot up.
2 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.
3 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.
4 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.
To start the recovery process:
1 Restart the system.
2 While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to
enter the recovery process.

Good luck and Merry Christams

You are going to need a boot up partition manager likeon the Ultimate Boot CD (ultimatebootcd.com). Boot to it, go into the partition program, then set the active partition back. Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Try formating your harddrive and reloading the OS. If that doesn't work you might need a new harddrive.

Acer has a software named eRecovery. This software dedicated to their customers in order to get Windows OS recovery process a lot more easier and faster even a kid able to do it.


Acer created a hidden partition labeled PQSERVICE

You wouldn't able to see this partition in Windows explorer. If you want to see this partition existance, right-click My Computer -> Manage -> Disk Management


PQSERVICE partition contain an image of Windows OS (XP/Vista/Seven) and this partition will be load to recover anytime when your Windows OS crashed, unstable, or infected by virus.

By pressing ALT+F10 before entering Windows boot process, you will access Acer eRecovery menu and asked the location where the backup will restore (ussually C: Drive). After few simple clicks (as easy as click Next) you will have your Windows back as 'factory default' state (State when you bought your Acer machine)

But how if there are password required for eRecovery? The windows is crashed and unfortunately... you don't know the password?

Here are the tricks!


Try the default password 000000

I have bought a used Acer aspire one netbook with preinstalled windows xp. I would like to have a "clean sleet" to start with. How do I do that


Hi,

In order to do this, you need to reformat your laptop. That means that you need the installer for your Operating System as well as your drivers. Secure this two installers and get back here if you need further information.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Acer 5315 laptop ''eRecovery'' issue


That is because the D drive was the recovery partition, you cannot make another, instead of giving the os disk to the consumer they put it on the Drive. Now that is gone.Call Tiger and ask them if they can help you. They will need to reinstall the operating system, unless you have another disk. You can try going into the cotrol panel and removing the Acer prprietary software that is causing the problem, but be careful what you take out, there are several programs like vista manager that we could have recommended to remove nd optomise your system, but I fear it's too late for that now,If you can get into safe mode on bootup, you may be able to restore the os.

Acer 5520 restore failed 0xa000000e


I got it to work by deleting all the partitions on my drive (I first loaded xp, loaded system commander 9, and used that to delete all the partitions.)

Then while booting from the recovery cd, holding down alt-f10, the recovery dialog said it was partitioning the drive. (I didn't see this before, even if I partitioned the drive like it came from the factory.)

Then the rest of the recovery worked.

The laptop has an eRcovery partition the will restore it to original condition.

Acer eRecovery


At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 (at the same time you would press F2 to enter the BIOS) to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery.
· The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD.
· The password by default is 000000 (6 zeros) and it is displayed when you are asked for the password.
· Users are able to change the password in this mode for eRecovery only.
· The system can recover from the hidden image on the hard drive (PQService partition) or from CD/DVD media.
· It is possible to reload from the factory style CDs/DVD or the snapshots that the Windows version of eRecovery creates.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

eRecovery expects there to be both C: (system) and D: (DATA) partitions on the drive as well as the hidden recovery partition. If you use Disk Management to shrink the C: drive, and create the D: drive, things will install properly.

D2d recovery


Is the d2d erecovery function enabled in the bios?

To check, activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during the POST; while the notebook PC logo is being displayed.

To enable D2D recovery ard disk recovery), select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen.

Find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the <F5> and <F6> keys to set this value to Enabled.

That should allow you to use the F10 function key to activate D2D.
* Note: D2D e-recovery is not in Acer Empowering Management.
AEM is a power management utility that supports ACPI (advanced configuration and power interface) which allows for maximum power conservation and maximum performance. (Managed by the windows OS)
