Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

Reinstalling Vista and Acer Tech Cont.

I have an additional question to the one I wrote before about trying to wipe clean my computer-- I searched through the manual that came with my Acer laptop. There was a section that talked about reinstalling the software that came with the computer without recovery disks. It said to press F2 at startup and check to see if the Disk to Disk recovery was enabled (which it was). Then when the computer restarts press Alt+F10 at the Acer logo startup screen. I pressed it and either get repeated loud beeping noises or I got an imput screen that has information that looks like this: note all backslashes from "edit" to "HD" are reversed-- idk how to type them:

Edit Windows boot option for: Microsoft Windows Vista
Path: /Windows/system32/winload.exe
Partition: 2
Hard Disk: 66306936

[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN]

Is there any way I can use this to restart my system from the default settings when the ALT F10 only gives me this screen?

    I'm hoping that I can get a copy of the Windows Vista Home Premium and just reinstall it with that cd. Thanks for all the help!

Hello,

I contacted you earlier about this. Sorry for the delay. You can use the information to recovery your hard drive if you have encrypted the volume by using BitLocker Drive Encryption and you know the password. To be honest, I have only seen this error in enterprise version of Vista, Server and 64-bit os and most of the time, I have ended up having to reinstall the os from a cd because the disk was too damaged to recover the data.

If you need more information about this, here is a link.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928201 I do hope this can help you. Hopefully another IT pro has encountered this one and could shed some experience on it. Good luck.

I have had a lot of luck with Puppy Linux. Download the ISO, burn it to a CD using ISO burning software, then boot into the CD. From there, you should be able to browse your HDD and copy any files you want to a USB drive. I would suggest wiping and reinstalling your operating system after that.

When booting up,operating system not found. Using Acer Aspire 5536. Vista. Help!!!


That means the start up files on your computer are already corrupted. You may need to reinstall the operating system. You need an operating system disc for this to work.
Warning: Reinstalling the operating will wipe out everything on the hard drive, so if you need some help in backing up your files, either buy an external enclosure and back up the data on your other computer, or contact a local technician.

Remove windows from acer aspire 5100


I think you have dual Os on it i.e Win XP & Win Vista. So, I am sorry to say that you can not access the full factory restore from the recovery partion. At this point, I would suggest you to contact the Acer Technical Supprt and order for RCD (Recovery Disk) inorder to wipe everything from the computer or you can use a Disk Manager utility to wipe everything from the computer.You can visit the below link to download the software

If you are running Windows Vista, this is solved quite easily:
Instead of doubleclicking the shortcut and running the program, right-click it and select: run as administrator. Now it should run fine.

On XP, try reinstalling the game.

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

Acer 5610z will not start


I had the same problem with my neices Acer 5100...Went into safe mode, it loaded the drivers and sat that for what seemed forever...almost like it was hung up....I had a few things to do...and a couple hours later, it finally booted into safe mode.

I was able to save her files, but ultimatly ended up wiping everything out because of the corrupt files.

On another Acer, the same hang up "unable to boot into safe mode" even after a long period of time, and that Acer was a total loss..had to format...

I presume nothing was saved to a CD? i.e. her gsce files?

Doing a factory restore/reset will loose everything.

Try to boot into safe mode and allow it to boot up...see if it eventually comes up...I will keep reading for a solution other than the two here...and will post as soon as I find one...
Unfortunately, Acer do not have a good fix for most of their computer problems....

Trying to reset Bios Password


Have you tried not typing in a password?

Something must have changed...either you installed some software and it changed your ntldr file...or you removed a shared file.
If the computer was given to you..and there's nothing on it that you need...I suggest doing a clean install...wipe everything out and start from scratch.
This way, you have the computer set up the way YOU want it..

If there are no important files that you need...a clean install sometimes is the best avenue of defense...yes...it does take time to install (an hour or so)...but Acer has all the drivers for your computer and you can get it back up and running clean if need be..
