Question about Fujitsu Siemens Computers & Internet
Switched on pc and the only thing on screen is recovery "restore factory settings" (personal data will be lost) only options are next ( don't want to loose data) or cancel when I click cancel it turns pc off same screen when I switch it on !!!
First, remove ALL media, DVD, CD, USB, unplug, remove battery, leave battery out, plug in, try a reboot to safe mode, and use this procedure: http://www.netsquirrel.com/msconfig/msconfig_win7.html select Normal Startup, Apply, reboot. OR, Try a System Restore to a date before this issue.

Hmm...try taking the hard drive away from ur laptop and use a ''hard drive caddy'' to connect it via usb to another pc.Then format it and try to recover again.It might also be a bios error wich i don't think you can replace on a laptop motherboard.Also try contacting toshiba for a replace or refund if in warranty.

It sound like your hard drive has crashed. There is no easy solution to your problem. Here are a couple solutions. You need to run a "chkdsk". It will scan and fix file problems on your HD. To do this you can either download a boot disk like "Ultimate boot disk" or you can take the HD out of your laptop and attach it to another computer. Neither of these are easy, for the boot disk you need to have software that can burn a "iso image" to a cd and to attach the HD to another computer you have to have the proper adapter. I would be happy to walk you through either one of these, just let me know. The easist thing to do would be to contact Acer and get recovery cds then go buy a new hard drive. I would take the old one to the store, to be sure I got the right replacement HD.

well if its the boot password you have hope,ALT+F10 on start is supposed to get you to the recovery manager,if you cant get there restore factory default,if its the windows operating system password,you can try to type administrator in the user name and leave the password blank,sometimes your able to get in on the built in administrator acct.,if that doesnt work,,its not easy you can download password recovery programs and try that,if its the boot lock password you can take it apart and remove the bios battery on the mother board,remove main battery ,unplug power set something on the power button heavy enough to hold it down and wait,the longer the better,one day ,maybe two,reassemble and it should be back to factory default, if its under warranty send it to acer,nowif your able to get past the boot password and the windows password is still holding you up you can one-time boot to a windows disc and reinstall new copy,warning! you will loose everything on the computer,but at least you can use it agian hope this helps,aloha from maui todd0708

Your computer's operating system just crashes down. What you can do is to do a start up repair. You need the operating system discs which came with your computer during the time when you bought it. It says windows 7 installation/operating system.
Here's what you need to do.
1. Insert the windows 7 operating system disc in the dvd drive.
2. Restart the computer. It will bring you to a page which will ask you to press any key. Just press any key to boot to the installation cd.
3. A blue screen will appear and it will bring you to the page which has the option to install or to repair. Select repair.
4. Then follow the on-screen instructions and finish the process until it restarts.
5. If it does not fix the problem, you have to do a complete/clean reinstallation.
I am providing you a full tutorial on how to do it. Click on the link below so that you will be directed to the link.

You can get another Recovery CD from the laptop manufacturer, otherwise you need a Windows installation CD that matches the Windows version of the Windows label that is attached to the bottom of your laptop. This label also has the product installation code for installing Windows on your laptop.
