Take out the hard drive from the laptop and reseat it back into position. Sometimes reseating the hard drive will get it to be recognized by the BIOS. After you reseat the hard drive, go into the BIOS and see if its recognized in there. If it is then try to format the hard drive. If it still doesn't see it then your hard drive will need to be replaced.

Telephone ACER, and purchase a replacement set of "System Restore" CD-ROM disks.
Probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier delivery.

Restore to factory default


Unlike other laptops, Acer notebook/laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer Aspire 4315 to factory setting.

Step 1: Before starting your Acer Aspire 4315 laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer one to original factory settings.

Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer Aspire 4315 is reset to factory settings.

Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your notebook data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.

Computer says , OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND


Your hard drive is either crashed or corrupted. You might try checking the bios to see if the drive is showing up. If it is, you can try a repair or a reformat. You will need your restore disk(s).

Boot off the disk and follow the instructions.

Moving the laptop while it's accessing the hard drive or improperly shutting down the computer can corrupt the drive. If kids use it as well, it is a good idea to keep your backups current...you do back up, don't you?

Hi i had windows 7 loaded to my laptop acer 4315 and all my start up acer programs are gone how do i reload... thank you


You will need to manually reload them from the various disks they came on, After a reformat (I assume it was done) all programmes are lost until you reload them.
