Dont know how many times Ive told people that recovery disks are not worth a w""k...
you can still enter bios so can you not choose reset to default.
default settings will detect bootdisks.
other than that you will have to remove the rtc battery..
on some models its located in the mem compartment but in most you have to partially strip down pc to access motherboard..it looks like a large digital watch battery...you need to remove it for a minute or so then replace ..reassemble pc and reboot...there is software to do this but unfortunatly you need the use of the cd as its a bootdisk.
next time you want to recover use xp disk or install recovery software..if you want recovery software for future and lets hope its the near future let me know and I'll give you link for it (send me ur email)

Boot cd acer AX3400-B3802


What operating system is on this machine ?
What do yo see after booting up ?
1. If it is not booting up and you do not see the selftest screens and it gives a number of beeps then shuts down: count the number of beeps, that can tell you what is wrong.
2.If it is finding a harddrive but then gives a black screen which says something like "operating system not found, insert disk" or "grub error, run grub recovery" then you might need a cd or usb drive to boot from.

You might try Acer's e-recovery if you had that on your computer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2xoMEPfiPQ

Else look here for Win 7 answer:
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1751047/copy-boot-disk-win.html
Note on the link to Microsoft the answer of Andre da Costa.
At a friends computer:
1. download the iso
2. burn a cd disk using the program Imgburn as Andre says.

Then run it on your computer:
NB. you might first need to change the boot order in the BIOS, press DEL or F10 (the right button is displayed during the selftest on screen somewhere) find BOOT ORDER or POWER UP ORDER in the BIOS and put CD drive in first position

Look here for what to do:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-are-system-recovery-options#what-are-system-recovery-options=windows-7
open the 3rd option:
To open the System Recovery Options menu using the Windows 7 installation disc or a USB flash drive, or a system repair disc.

If you have reinstalled the operating system and Microsoft Genuine Check gets bothering you: call Microsoft support and explain that you had to reinstall due to harddrive failure, you will be given a new key for your windows. I have done so several times after hardware failures and reinstalling, they always have given me a new key. But you will have to make clear it was due to hardware failure, f.i. new motherboard, harddrive failure.

I losted my operation system, so I installed a windwon 7, now I want get my old opreation system back which is homevista, cani get it bac now?


When you first bought your PC or laptop, you would have been prompted by Windows Vista to create recovery discs, either CD or DVD. If you did this and still have the discs then you can simply put the recover disc into your DVD drive and re-boot the PC from the DVD drive (you may need to change the boot options in the BIOS or via a function key at boot-up).
If you did not create any recovery discs then there is a small possibility that there is a recovery partition on the hard drive. During boot-up, look at the text on the screen that tells you which button to press to get into the BIOS setup utility. There may be an option to start the recovery process, which would access the recovery partition.
If you have not got the recovery discs or a recovery partition then you will need a Windows Vista Home installation disc. The product key should be on a label on your PC or laptop.

How do you restore the factory settings on the acer aspire 5532?


Well, first acer brand is cheap, and they don't give you a factory restore disc or a restore partition drive like most other laptop. However they give you the option to make a factory restore disc yourself, there is a program in the laptop ( browsing through your start task bar) should be a program such as acer recovery management, from there on use that program and make a retore disc. Once disc is created, you can go ahead and procced to restore your laptop in which you need to change your boot option to disc during startup of the laptop in order to boot from the recovery disc you just made.

My acer aspire 5920 is in chinese and i need to know how to change to english


Hi,
use your XP install disc (or Vista or whatever OS you use) to boot up your laptop and do a Repair Install. Usually you will get a prompt to "Boot from CD by pressing any key." during the power up of your laptop. If you dont get that option, reboot and go into BIOS and change your boot order ie have the CD drive as first boot option followed by your hard drive. Then try booting again with your XP disc in the cd drive.
You can change the language to English during a Repair installation but you may have to re-enter your serial number and activate again on-line again.
Cheers,
Steve

Cant restore acer netbook back to facotry settings did not do backup when purchased


Recovery procedure for Acer netbooks.

Important Information

The Recovery disc will help you to restore the hard drive with the original software content that was installed when you purchased your notebook. Follow the steps below to rebuild your hard drive. Your drive will be reformatted and all data will be erased. It is important to back up all data files before you use this option.

Restoration procedure:

1. Press the power button to turn the system on.

2. Select to boot from a USB optical drive. There are two ways to do this:

2.1. Press <F2> during the Power-On Self-Test (when the Acer logo is displayed onscreen after bootup) to enter BIOS Setup.

2.1.1. Select the Boot menu.

2.1.2. Refer to onscreen instructions to set the first device to any bootable optical disc drive.

2.2. Press <F12> during the Power-On Self-Test (when the Acer logo is displayed onscreen after bootup), and select the USB ODD from the list that appears.

3. Ensure the Recovery disc is in an external (USB) optical disc drive, and exit the boot selection menu, by selecting Exit Saving Changes from the Exit menu or pressing <F10>, or by pressing <Enter> as appropriate.

4. Select Exit Saving Changes from the Exit menu or press <F10>.

5. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation process.

6. When you finish the recovery process, please remove the Recovery disc and insert the System disc again.

7. Restart your computer.



Create a Recovery USB device

You will need a second computer with an ODD to complete this procedure.

1) Insert the Recovery CD into the optical drive. Plug in a USB/flash drive with a minimum capacity of 1 GB.

2) Enter the BIOS setup and set the first boot device to the ODD. Save the changes and exit.

3) Allow your computer to boot up.

4) From the list of options, select "install2usb".

5) You will see a list of available disks, select the USB drive you plugged in.

6) Click the next button to complete the procedure.

7) Remove the USB ODD and USB/flash drive. You now have the Recovery system stored in your USB/flash drive, for future use if necessary.
