Power connection to computer came out during shutdown yesterday. Today, turning on, it will not boot up.


You are going to need a clean boot up disk. You will have to get one mailed to you or you will have to use another computer to download one. This will get you back into a point that you can do a windows restore. This is going to get rid of all programs and start you fresh. I do, however, feel that you disk drive is going out or already shot. You should do a Chkdsk on it. (check disk). This will tell you if it is a hard drive error or not.

Restore factory settings


Many Toshiba laptops come with the factory software recovery image stored in a special (hidden) area on the hard disk. From this special hidden system recovery image, you can restore your computer to its factory-fresh software condition by following these steps:
  1. Make sure the computer is turned off ("Shut-down" from the Windows Start menu)
  2. Remove any peripherals such an external mouse, keyboard, monitor, USB flash drive etc.
  3. Make sure the AC Adapter is plugged in and working.
  4. Press and hold down the 0 (zero) key on the keyboard while powering on the computer. Release it when the recovery warning screen appears.
  5. If the recovery process offers a choice of Operating Systems, select the appropriate one for you.
  6. A warning screen appears, stating that when the recovery is executed all data will be deleted and rewritten.
  7. Click Yes to continue.
  8. When the Toshiba Recovery Wizard opens select "Recovery of Factory Software" or the appropriate option for your needs.
  9. Continue to follow the directions restarting as necessary.
For laptops equipped with Windows 8, "Reset" returns your computer to its out-of-box, factory default conditions (removes your personal files and apps as well reset all settings to defaults) similar to a "System Recovery."
Please note that the process may vary slightly from machine to machine, that you may be asked to insert disks (multi-disk packages) and that the process may take one to two hours to complete. The recovery process will restart your computer several times.
As you use the recovery process you will have several options. One of these may be to create a custom size partition. Follow the directions on screen for this and other options as prompted. When in doubt, it's usually best to accept the default, or pre-selected option.

System Restore Disk won't work


The Recovery disk could be damaged or corrupted. The reason you are getting the Ethernet controller error your laptop can not find an operating system on the drive. With the aspire try ALT-F10 when you power on the system it will take you to a system restore partition. This will only work if the Hard drive is working. And it will wipe your drive so if you did not have any backups well you will lose all data on the disk.

How do i erase reinstall the computer from the recovery discs?


If you don't have your manual, get it from Acer website. Just run the recovery program and follow the instructions. This is just like formatting, it will overwrite the HDD. For you this should be fine, and even formatting is useless. So Follow the Manual.

I have read problems about erasing, if you don't make a extra partition the recovery system will flag out. Seen the second disk error out and not finish, now you have no laptop.

Read about people who needed a new HDD and put it in and couldn't get the recovery disk's to work.


Like I said, formatting is useless anyway, the only true way to clean a hard drive HDD is to use programs that zero write the drive.
But either way, if you format or erase, you can risk not getting the recovery to work.

If you are worried about malware (virus, trojan) Get Bitdefender or Avira, they have a free virus program. Then if you like it, when you can but it.

These are in the top 5 for today's Anti-Virus. What ever you do don't use AVG.

How to reset toshiba mini nb250


when you first turn your computer on tap [F8] and keep tapping it until you see a menu, this may have a restore to factory settings option, if it does chose it, if not chose repair my computer, and follow the instructions, there should be a factory restore option in there somewere.

if nether of those work try going into BIOS (usually ether [F2] or [del] when the computer is first turned on) and look for any relevant options
.
if there is nothing in bios did you get a restore CD/DVD with the PC, if so set boot settings in bios to cd first, and when it says pres any key to boot from cd do so and follow the instructions

if you did not get recovery disks with the PC there is usually an option to create them, look for it under the all programs menu, create the recovery disks then use them








or
If you're on windows 7 try going into:
Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System restore
See attached link to see what it should look like.

Hard drive


You need to use a Windows install disk, or the computer recovery disk.

At startup of new windows installation, chose new installation and then chose the option Format hard drive.

Note: the windows install disk must be bootable, Upgrade install disk (non bootable) does not have the format option.

Recovery For ACER 3660


If you have recovery disk try starting them from Windows, or start computer with disk inside and chose 'boot from cd'.
After booting from recovery disc chose complete recovery.
Save a backup of your data, as complete recovery may delete the data.
If recovery disk does not work you will have to install Windows from a generic Windows setup disk, in this case refer to manual for how to.

Here is the user manual, check from page 82
