There aren't any restore disks because most Acer's have them built-into the hard drive.

Just press SHIFT + F10 when you start the computer.

That should put you into the Acer eRecovery Menu.

If that key combo doesn't work try:

F10
Alt + F10
Fn +F10
ctrl + F10

Let me know which one works, I always seem to forget.

Best of luck!

Acer Aspire 6920 - The key press that works to restore to Factory Default is the ALT + F10 on boot up the window of opportunity is very small press these two keys together 3 times every 3 seconds and you should get into first time.

If you have created optical DVD backups (normally 3) then you can take it the the level when you created these DVD's otherwise it will take it to the SP1 version that came with the laptop and you will need to build up from there I suggest the SP2 patch DVD first then Office 2007 you will need to have used a key backup tool first like WInKeyFinder or Nirsofts ProductID

If this helps please rate !

Formatted acer aspire 5736z with windows 7 ultimate and finished but operating system not loading and takes me to recovery screen tried recovery but still takes me there again and again, tried to boot...


Please take a close look at the disk you are using to install "Windows 7 Ultimate". It is definitely a "Recovery Disk" for Windows 7 Ultimate. You cannot install Windows 7 with a recovery disk. Recovery disk always is used to repair corrupt or damaged files of Windows OS and requires that the Operating System is already installed. You need a "Windows 7 Ultimate" Installation disk to install Windows not a recovery disk for Windows.

I just received the system and recovery dics from Acer. When I insert the system disc, it loads and then times out with "please wait a moment..:


Then you may have a faulty hard drive, you didn't say why you had to get them, what happened? If your drive is OK? Then perhaps you need to format it first, with say UBCD, here download and burn to CD, and it has tools that will allow you to format and partition. www.ultimatebootcd.com/
Official instructions below.

Turn on you computer, if not already done. Place the Recovery Disk into your CD Drive. Restart the computer with the disk in the drive.
While the computer loads, you will be prompted to "Press any key to boot from disk." Press a key quickly as you are only given a few seconds to do so.
Follow the instructions on the screens to format your hard drive. When prompted to format the partition on your drive or to alter the partitions, select "Format" with the arrow and enter keys. Selecting "Alter" will not recover your computer.
Once the format is complete, you will be prompted to restart your computer. Accept, and while it boots again you will be prompted to "Boot from Disk," as in Step 2. Do not press any buttons this time as you have completed the formatting process already.
Windows will be reinstalled once formatting is complete. Remove the Recovery CD from the disk drive. Replace with the Driver Installation CD. Reinstall all your computers drivers with this CD.
  • If you accidentally select the "Alter" option in Step 3, restart your computer using the button beneath the Power button on your computer and follow Step 2 again. Store any files you want to keep on an external media, such as a CD or external hard drive.
  • You will lose all saved information on your hard drive, since using the Recovery CD will set your computer back to the factory default. Do not unplug or turn your computer off while the formatting or installation is in progress. Doing so may corrupt your hard drive and might render it unusable.

Can I load drivers downloaded to a disc,and install on other pc


Yes, go to Acer site, locate your model for drivers. Download them into a folder on your other machine (the one with internet access). Then insert a USB stick and copy and paste the folder to the stick. Now just insert the stick in the Vista machine, drag the folder to your desktop and begin installing your drivers.

Here is a link to your drivers. Click on desktop / Aspire / M1640 then make sure to set the operating system to Vista Ultimate.

Hope this helps.
