    no i have only tried alt f10 and it will not even recognize the command

  • ll0yd Mar 25, 2009

    I have been told to press Alt+F10 repeatedly when the Acer screen appears on startup. This screen only shows for about two seconds and no mater how many times I have tried it nothing happens. All I want to do is get into the recovery program. Is there a back door to it?

I do not know what type of device you have nor do I know the O/S you are using. What function are you trying to Accomplish by this move? I can not think of anything that Alt+F10 does. Are you sure you don't mean The "FN" key and F10? Please try the FN key and F10 to see if you get the result you are looking for.

You must update the BIOS, then you run alt + F10

Hi,

Have you checked if the Alt key is working? You can try to plug in an external keyboard and try the Alt+F10, if it works then you're having a problem with the Alt key.

Hope this helps.

Programs and Files are uninstalling themselves, and then will not reinstall. What do I do?


Sounds like a virus to me, download and install the trail version of HitMan Pro and run it, here is a link to the download:

http://download.cnet.com/Hitman-Pro-3-32-bit/3000-2239_4-10895604.html

This should snuff out any viruses working in the background on your laptop...reboot and see if that has solved the issue, if not, try entering your recovery partition, while booting the laptop up hold ALT+F11 or ALT +F10 this should let you in to be able to recover and repair Windows.

Hope this helps

If you get to boot options menu, choose safe mode and hit enter (remember you mouse does not work in the boot options screen) once you are safe mode, check if the computer locks up. if not we have to find what in normal mode is locking up your computer.

Hi,

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

How to restore fatory settings without the cd acer aspire 5740g windows 7 home premium windows is not booting n auto recovery that is alt+f10 is also not working but the recovery partition still exist


For all Acer Netbooks try to initiate the recovery using Altgr key (righthand side of the space bar) and F10, ie Altgr+F10 as soon as the computer restarts. If the recovery partion is corrupted or do not have the CD. Try the below steps:
No Restore CD / eRecovery / password / ALT + F10 or F10
1 - Recovery of data on the hidden partition PQSERVICE for password
A - Installing the software R-Drive Image to create an image of this partition (this file has the extension. ARC)
B - Always with this software, create a virtual disk logic to see the files
C - From the desktop, go to the newly created virtual disk and find the file aimdrs.dat. The open with the notepad and get the password.
2 - Reactivating the ALT + F10
A - Always on the virtual disk created, find 2 files: mbrwrwin.exe and rtmbr.bin.
B - Copy these 2 files on drive C: \
C - Since the MS-DOS (Pocket PC) to C: \, type the following command: mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin
D - The function has been reactivated.
3 - Start of Restoration
A - At the start of the PC, go to the set-up to check if the function is well on D2D enabled (normally it is a default setting ... but hey you never know.)
B - Once the audit and that the PC has restarted once the ACER logo appears, simultaneously press ALT + F10 to start the restore utility.
C - When it asks for the password, you need to type one found in the file aimdrs.dat. CAUTION: The keyboard is QWERTY mode so we thought enter his password, but as some letters are reversed, it does not work.
4 - Normally at this stage there ... everything works and restoration is smooth.
Note: If the operating system does not work, it is possible to do this from another PC by connecting the hard drive or USB slave
i found this helped me with exactly the same problem you have on the 7540g aspire laptop use the ALTGR on the right hand side of keyboard not the ALT on the left hand side of the keyboard along with F10 i tried it with just the ALT on the left side nothing happened but when used ALTGR on right side it woeked and reset everything back to factory settings then went to acer site and downloaded missing drivers hope this helps you out
