There are various partition tools but bear in mind you cannot make a partition smaller than the dat you have on it. Acronis is a good tool or you could backup to anothre disk and then repartition the laptp and then rstore the backup

SOURCE: How to replace Acer Aspire 5630 Hard Drive

The link below gives you the user manual. On the computer views is the base view which will show you the correct bay on the bottom of the computer. You will loosed the screws to that bay, remove the cover andl you will see the hard drive. Althought I have not removed this particular laptop hard drive, these drives usually pull up or back using a tab provided. The hard drive will probably have a cradle the actual drive is connected to. You will have to removed the old drive from this cradle and put the new drive back on the cradle exactly the way the old drive was attached,

I hope that this information helps and gives you a place to start solving your issue.

Hi, it seems that the recovery partition is not working.You may have to get the Recovery CD's to do the Factory Recovery.If you have not created the Recovery CD's from the Recovery manager software, you can purchase it from the Acer website.

The Alternate method for starting the Recovery on startup is using the combination of ALT+F10 ( some models its ALTgr ) on startup.Press and Hold down the ALT( Left jand of space ) and at the same time keep on tapping the F10 key till you get the message " Windows is loading files".Just follow the On screen Instructions to start the Recovery.

Your hard drive may have unused space configured as a partition with no format. Go to administrative tools, Computer management, Disk management to see what is going on.

How do i take my acer 6930 back to factory settings.


On those Acer Laptops, its either going to be F10 or F11 to go into the factory restore. Keep pressing either button when you first turn on the laptop. If neither of those keys take you into the factory restore then that means the hidden partition is missing.

The only way at that point would be to format the hard drive and then install windows again. Then go ahead and install the drivers for the hardware and then any software you want as well.

I can not fix recovery factory my pc


If you laptop was not supplied with a Windows CD then most likely the hard disk on your laptop has a recovery partition on the hard drive and you can restore your laptop back to the condition when you first purchased the laptop using this recovery partition.
Acer can also supply a recovery CD for your model Acer if you request one. This is needed when the hard disk has failed.
Read your laptop documentation for the instruction on the restore procedure. You also get this information from Acer's WEB site.

I need to know how to reset my acer aspire 6930 to factory settings!!!!!


A slightly different model requires pressing Alt+F10 at the start up and following the prompts. This will wipe the hard drive though, so back up everything important first. You can probably still get the data even if it doesn't boot Windows.

I need to reset my acer aspire 5520 to factory settings without recovery discs


Hi,

There is a recovery console on your HDD (Hard Disk Drive) this is a hidden partition on your HDD. If you power on your laptop and hold the ALT key and keep tapping the F10 key while it posts to the acer logo screen it will goto a black screen with a flashing cursor on the top left then stop tapping F10 and remove your finger from the ALT key, you will then see windows loading files. This will take you to the recovery console and from there you can select restore laptop to factory defaults or restore laptop retaining user data.

Hope this helps

I've got Aspire 6930 and the hdu's partitions have been erased. I got the factory recovery cd's. What do I need to do to restore the factory partitions?


How was the partitions erased? Did somebody reformat the whole hard drive itself or just a partition. If the hard drive was reformatted then there's no way you can recover the factory partitions. Normally ther will be a hidden partition in the hard drive in case you want to use the recovery cds that came with it. And thru this, it will restore the factory settings on your computer on the state where you first got it. There is another option you can recover deleted partitions in case when the hd was reformatted like the stellar software, etc. but you have to buy it.

When i power on my Acer aspire one all i get is blue screen....how do i restore factory settings?


press f9 as soon as soon as you turn on the laptop and you should be routed to the recovery console. tick the box and continue. disclaimer: going for the factory settings will delete all data. Restoring it to the factory defaults will only work if there's a recovery partition on the hard drive itself

however if the cause of the blue screen is a hardware failure , restoring it to the factory settings will be useless

How do set my aspire 3680 back to factory setting


If you have a Recovery Partition on your computer then you will have to boot into the Recovery Partition to reformat your hard drive and reinstall your operating system. If you don't have a Recovery Partition then you will have to reinstall your operating system from a disc; if you have one. If you don't have the disc either, then you can get one from Acer. Otherwise you will have to go out and buy the version of Windows that you want from a store or from an online business. That will likely cost you at least $150, and then you will have to go thru the hassle of finding the drivers for all the devices on you laptop. So.......If you don't have a recovery partition or the factory recovery discs, then you should try getting a recovery disc from Acer. If you don't want to wait that long and you don't want to spend over $100 on getting it done, then you should see if a local computer repair shop will do it for you.
