What your saying is you removed your Recovery Partition? Have you tried a Full Factory Recovery? Remove ALL media DVD, CD, USB, etc. Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in , Power on the laptop. Immediately tap the "Alt" and "F10" keys, repeatedly.

SOURCE: restore window vista for acer aspire 5920

Hi Acer supply the restoration files in a hidden partition on your hard drive. If it is the same as mine try this. Start the pc, then while the Acer logo is showing, press ALT & F10 at the same time. Then just follow the instructions. Bear in mind that this will format your C drive so you should do a backup of any important data first. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to restore acer extensa5220 notebook back to its original set

From Acer direct

The other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts

Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:

“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”

If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.

If you see this:
“Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”

Then it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on your screen after a short pause..

In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.

The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs.

This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine.
If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.

Vista - Windows explorer hangs during start


Sounds like a corrupt start up. Install your Vista disc and boot from the cd. After it loads windows it will give you several choices of what to do, choose repair startup and let the disc do its magic. When it is finished it will give you other choices after that. Take the disc out and restart and see if that takes care of the problem. If it doesn't, load the disc again and maybe try a early restore point, say a week before the problem started or think back to what happened to make this problem occur in the first place and go back to that restore point. You can pick earlier restore points then what is initially shown to you, just take your time. When restore is done, make sure to remove the disc.

I've lost the base drivers for my vaio ar630e during the installation of windows 7 rc. Need help with restoring it back!!!!


If you have a windows disc that came with the system, insert the disc while the computer is on. Shut the computer down. Turn computer back on. Your computer should boot to the disc. Delete partitions. Format the hard drive. And reinstall.
If you do not have a windows disc contact sony to purchase a recovery disc.

How to back up windows vista and how to restore if any problem


Click start,all programs, look for Acer folder, you are looking for recovery media creator, have a couple of blank DVD-/+R and follow the instructions to create a restore set, you can only make one set,(until you restore again, then you COULD make another set). This only makes a copy of the factory installed software, it doesn't back up any of your personal data.
To restore, put the 1st disk in, and restart the PC, follow the prompts to boot to CD/DVD and start restore

Acer t180 boots to erecovery


Borrow any Vista install DVD and boot from it

Follow it through until you are asked if you want to install Vista or Repair your Computer
Select repair and let it do its thing - it may work
Failing that its a full reinstall by the sounds of it

If it does not offer you the initial boot option then look on the boot screen for the boot options key - probably F11 or F12 - and press that during initial boot to obtain the boot options screen

I have an Aspire 3680 Acer laptop and it has Acer Arcade bundled with the other software on the laptop. I am not able to view DVDs on the laptop using Acer Arcade. Please help!


"Installing other playback software affects the codecs Acer Arcade needs to playback the disc properly. I suggest you reinstall Arcade and see if the playback in Arcade clears up. Here are the steps to do this:

To restore a driver or application that was preinstalled on your computer from the factory, you need to run Acer eRecovery, here are the steps:
1. Move your mouse over the Empowering technology widget and click on the eRecovery Manager icon or you may also press ALT and F10 on the keyboard to start the program.

Please note: The first time you access the eRecovery feature, you are prompted to create a password. If you forget it then you will have to use the recovery discs to reformat the system.

2. In the next window look at the bottom of the window and choose Restore.

3. Now choose Reinstall Applications/Drivers

4. Choose Install
5. Click on Windows Vista on the left side of the page
6. Choose driver or applications.
7. In the list choose the item you wish to install
8. On the right click the install link and follow the prompts.
9. The system may restart when installation is complete

Do not allow the system to shut down during this process. Plug in the AC adapter if necessary. "
