It may be a corrupt recovery disc

if u want to restore to factory default settings simply follow this procedure without inserting recovery disk

When you first turn on the laptop and see the Acer logo screen, hold the ALT key and press the F10 key (you need to do this before the Acer logo disappears).

everything will be restored to factory default settings

do rate me if it helps ur problem

I know that you are unable to start the current vista operation system and getting the error 0xc00000e9; the issue can be caused by the damaged system files or hardware device. You might first follow the steps below to exclude the possibility of system corruption.


Method 1: Use the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) to run System Restore

======================================================

1. Insert the Windows Vista installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.

3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.

4. Click Repair your computer.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next

6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on System Restore.

7. Follow the System Restore Wizard instruction as usual and choose the appropriate restore point.

8. Click Finish to restore the system.


Method 2: Startup Repair from the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)

======================================================

1. Insert the Windows Vista installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.

3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.

4. Click Repair your computer.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next.

6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on Repair your computer.

7. (Click the operating system that you want to repair), and then click Next.

8. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair.


Good luck!

E-recovery stalls at about 40%


Hi,

Sounds like a problem with your hard drive. The original hard drive installed is 40Gb. The message "destination: \\harddisk0\partition2" indicates that your single HD has been set to 2 partitions. Chances are that the recovery files are saved in your 2nd partition D. If your laptop came with a recovery CD, try using that instead of the eRecovery ALT/F10. Alternately, you may want to use an OEM XP Home Edition Installer and choose the 2nd "Repair" option.

If things don't work out, you may need to re-partition the HD and reinstall fresh/clean. Of course this would erase any and all contents of the drive. Should there be important files, you need to back them up but that would mean removing the HD and using an external enclosure, connect it as a removable storage to a 2nd PC using the USB and proceed to copy all your important files assuming of course that the 2nd PC will be able to read the HD in question.

If even on the 2nd PC you are having difficulty accessing the laptop's HD, try running utilities (ScanDisk) to check the HD's integrity. Possible problems are bad sectors, missing partition, corrupt files and the likes. If there are bad sectors, you may need to purchase a replacement.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hello.

This error can refer to hardware or software, depending on various circumstances.

Most likely, you have damaged system files.

You didn't indicate, but figuring that you have Vista, run System Recovery:

1. Insert the Windows Vista installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …". appears.
3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next
6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on System Restore.
7. Follow the System Restore Wizard instruction as usual and choose the appropriate restore point.
8. Click Finish to restore the system.


Hope this helps.

Error message that says boot disc error. there is


This is either a corrupt file system or a bad hard drive. You'll need to boot from a Rescue CD like BartPE or a Windows CD and run chkdsk on the drive to see if the file system has just become corrupt. If that fails, you may need to run "fixboot" and "fixmbr" from the recovery console. If those fail, or if chkdsk comes back and says it can't repair the damage, then you probably need a new hard drive.

Acer aspire 6920 startup problem (Windows Error Recovery)


You could try booting up in safe mode by pressing F8 if you haven't already. OR, if you have the Windows operating system disc, you might try to boot off of that, or a system recovery disc. You may lose a few files, but hopefully that will get you up and running. Hope this helps!

Laptop gets an error reading when it is powered up


I bet you have VISTA and tried to uninstall Norton. Sounds like one of the Problems I've had with my 3680. I traced it to a VISTA-ACER driver problem. Something about the restore disks booting XP to install the drivers and not all of them VISTA ready. I've had to send mine back to ACER twice for a system reload. The first when I did a restore to get rid of the VISTA upgrade that I installed and the WIFI wouldn't work on restore. When I got it back I tried to uninstall Norton and got the message you are getting. Ended up sending it back to ACER again. After the last time there was a bunch of MICROSOFT driver updates and I'm stuck with Norton.
