    Does the laptop not have a CD drive?

    If yes, then you can boot it using the recovery disc and it should guide you in the recovery.

You have to reinstall the OS by using that disk again ..just boot from CD , and follow the procedure can also put on a new OS ..from a boot-able CD ..any OS you like ...and recover drivers from the manufacturer site or let me know the model and the operating system you intend and I will provide links for download the necessary drivers be clear ...boot the laptop...and press del to enter bios for selecting the boot can also try first to see if the order isnt already selected and the pc will recognize3 and boot from cd ..when present this case all you have to do is to confirm the intention by pressing any key when it asks ...after that the recovery will take place as it should...same with a clean install from a windows boot-able disk ..xp .or vista at your choice ..but do not forget have the drivers first ...

Factory reset acer aspire 5315 gone wrong

I think you need to reload windows with a operating system disk. Most times the Factory Recovery discs don't work.

Get a windows operating system disk and just reload windows. The disk must match the Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker on the bottom of her laptop. In other words, don't use a Windows XP Home operating system disk if the COA sticker says Windows XP Professional or you'll never be able to activate windows.

I just bought an ACER ASPIRE AS7745-5782 yesterday. I started the computer and it told me to make recovery disks. Put the first disk in and got to time burnt 5:14 and time remaining 6:17 . It sat there...


What kind of disk are you using to do the recovery disks Acer told me that i should use DVD-R disks But i dont think that is the problem all though it could be

i would be tempted to if possible take the laptop back to where you got it from because there may be a problem with the cd/dvd drive

And i reckon that if its a brand new laptop then it should create the recovery disks for you and if it dosen't then the seller should sort it out for you

good luck

How do i recover my computer


Did you do a recovery disc when you first purchased it, if so put the disc in and at the Acer splash screen keep tapping F12 will start the recovery process, just follow the on screen instructions.

If you didn't do a recovery disc then you will have a recovery partition built into your hardrive, just start the laptop up and at the Acer slash screen keep tapping ALT+F10 or just F10 will start the recovery process, just follow the on screen instructions.
