Acer 5315 laptop ''eRecovery'' issue

I bought my 15-year old daughter an Acer 5315 that was a ''refurbished'' item from Tiger Direct. Since she has had it, the so-called ''eRecovery'' program tries to run at every start-up. eRecovery can never complete whatever it is trying to do and just hangs there until it is terminated using Windows Task Manager. One help site recommended deleting a specific entry in the Registry. I deleted the entry through regedit, but it had no effect. I would like to either eliminate eRecovery completely or repair it so it can work properly

    As it turns out, the eRecovery program requires its own partition on the hard drive. For whatever reason, the hard drive was partitioned in half, which is unusual to me. Usually a backup program get about 10% of the total hard drive. In any case, the "D" drive had never been formatted. As soon as we formatted the drive, eRecovery was satisfied and everything works great.



    I thank you for taking the time to think about my problem.

Try going into the start menu, click run, and type in "msconfig" - without quotes. When that comes up, on the right hand side of the screen should be a tab labeled "Startup". Select that, and scroll through the list to see if the eRecovery is an option - you may be able to deselect it. Also check under the "Services" tab - it may be located there(If you check the box under the services list labeled "Hide Microsoft", it makes it much easier and safer to find/edit active startup services)

Hi i have a trojan on my acer 5315 laptop how do i restore it to factory settings thanks


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. Here is the standard Acer Recovery Instructions

1. Power on the machine
2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the Alt key and press the F10 key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery
3. Once eRecovery has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings
4. Click OK to continue
5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore a fully functional factory image (approximately 10 minutes).
6. Once eRecovery has run, press OK to reboot unit

If this wont work you need to use the recovery cd of your system. Take note that if you do the reocvery process all files will be deleted and the system will go back to default or factory state.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Acer laptop 5315. While using the laptop it just


this laptop is cleverly designed, it is most probably the daughter board. this is where you connect you ac adapter. the daughter board or power board, eliminate the need for you to replace the whole motherboard when the connector is damaged. all you need to do is replace the power board. if this does not fix the issue, then there is a likely hood that you need to replace the motherboard


but before you attempt the above, first check if the ac adapter is not the problem

Acer 5315 laptop ''eRecovery'' issue


That is because the D drive was the recovery partition, you cannot make another, instead of giving the os disk to the consumer they put it on the Drive. Now that is gone.Call Tiger and ask them if they can help you. They will need to reinstall the operating system, unless you have another disk. You can try going into the cotrol panel and removing the Acer prprietary software that is causing the problem, but be careful what you take out, there are several programs like vista manager that we could have recommended to remove nd optomise your system, but I fear it's too late for that now,If you can get into safe mode on bootup, you may be able to restore the os.

How do i restore my lasptop to the factory settings


To restore your acer to its factory installation status (formats C: and removes all data) press ALT and F10 repeatedly on first boot. This should take you to the acer restore program which is partioned onto the hard drive.
Alternatively use the acer e recovery program to create a set of boot disks which will allow the same operation.
