Unfortunately you need the discs. Now days a backup of recovery software is usually located on a hidden partition of the hard disk that you need to burn to a cd/dvd before you can use it. If there is none on your hard disk and your computer is still in warranty, contact acer and they should mail you out a copy for free you just pay shipping and handling fees. If your computer is out of warranty they will still send them but you will have to pay full price for them.

Toshiba laptop L450/L450D satellite won,t reboot from hard disk drive

Try F12, F2 or F1 on power up to get into the boot menu.
Once in there change the boot sequence to try booting from the CD/DVD drive first and hard drive second. There are various options to download a rescue disk based on Linux on the internet. They download as .iso files which you save onto a CD/DVD.

You need to do this on another computer connected to the internet.

My favourite is KNOPPIX as it is a windows type GUI desktop. you can then try to repair you hard drive. Knoppix will exist in RAM only as long as the computer is turned on, so it wont damage your computer.

I restored my acer aspire one back to factory settings without a back up device. when I try to restore from disk with an external cd. it says my disk is incorrect. it was the disk that came with it.

In that case, only the seller can solve it replacing the disk or your CD drive that I did not want to mention but seems to be your problem. Before calling them, try to disable the CD driver in Control Panel, reboot, Enable the driver, reboot and try the cd again.

Restore factory settings

what i would do is go into dos. If you cant get into dos find a windows 98 setup disk 3.5" this will have the dos files that will allow the computer to reconize a generic cd rom. This should allow you to get your recovery disk working. Your software problem could of created a firmware problem also. Not reconizing the cd rom. This solution will provide the basics to get your cd rom loading the recovery disk for you. If you have questions or more problems feel free to contact me and i will take you through it step by step
