In a word ,no. Unless the old HDD can be retrived and read, your out of luck. I assume the old HDD was bad? Was that the reason for the new HDD. Didn't you tell the Tech to transfer the data? If possible.

There is a possibility if your files when updated were being stored online as restore points.but you need to be able to find computer god to get them.or if you have taken files off as it was...try your search engines,or any online backups ...to paired devices...nothing is gone unless its broken,and then it can maybe be repaired so BEWARE...i hope you didnt just throw it out,cause unless you smashed it with a hammer,some nosey problem might appear...

SOURCE: factory restore

if you can load into your current installation search for a program on your c:\ called D2D.exe it should be located within c:\Acer\ this will start a program if you click the top option it restores the factory settings.

SOURCE: Can't get computer to recognize memory upgrade

Hello macvalland,

Here's a 12-step memory upgrade procedure from the tigerdirect.com website:

Upgrading Your Memory to Improve Performance
Compiled By Our Editors
http://static.tigerdirect.com/html/installingmemory.html
12 Quick, Easy Steps to Installing Desktop Memory
Increasing your computer’s memory is one of the most powerful ways to improve performance.. The following 12-step guide illustrates how you can install your desktop memory upgrade in 10 minutes or less with the use of a demagnetized screwdriver. But before you begin, make sure you are working in a PC-e environment. If you handle your circuitry improperly you can inflict permanent damage. Your PC’s biggest enemy is static electricity. Static electricity can damage your module and other computer parts. You need to ground yourself to avoid "shocking" your computer. Grounding yourself removes any static electrical charge your body might be carrying. To ground yourself, you can wear antistatic wrist straps or you can do the following: With your computer turned off, touch an unpainted metal part of your computer case with your hand. Plant your feet and do not walk around (because walking can produce static electrical build-up. Now you’re ready to proceed with our 12-step program for installing memory:

1. Make sure your PC has been turned off PC! You’d be surprised how many people forget this common sense first step.

2. Remove all the power cords from your computer system.

3. Remove all the screws that secure your computer case and put them in a place where you can
easily find them..

4. Remove the computer case. Usually you can simply lift the case off once you have removed all the screws. However, if you have difficulty removing the case, consult your computer’s user manual.

5. Locate the memory slots on your motherboard. In some PCs you will find then beneath a power supply or drive. If so, you may need to remove some additional parts in order to gain access.

6. If you need the replace an existing memory module, undo the module clamps and gently lift the memory module out of the slot.

7. Take your memory module out of its anti-static bag and hold it gently by the edges. Line up the notch on the bottom of your new memory module with the empty memory slot and press the new module down with your thumbs until the pins rest snugly inside the slot. You may have to exert some pressure! When will hear a click when the memory module is installed correctly.

8. Secure the new memory module by attaching the module clamps.
9. Put the computer case back on.

10. Replace the case screws to secure the case.

11. Attach your power cord.

12. Now that your new memory has been installed, turn on your computer!
Once your memory has been physically installed, the computer must install it electronically. Once your PC is turned on, you may have to go into computer BIOS to enable your system to detect the new RAM you have just installed. Refer to your computer us

Have a great day,

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 have an Acer Aspire 5315 laptop. When I bought it, it included a DVD-burning program. Naturally, I assumed I could write a DVD on this, but I don't seem to be able to. I am using a DVD+R disc.


Saddly not all are what they appear to be , had similar prob myself.

Try burning a CD with this prog. Its a naughty way of getting you to upgrade. Fingers crossed!

I have the acer5715/5315 series abd it crashed. I had it fixed and the guy put windows 7 so now none of my acer programs work. How can I get these to work with windows 7


Operating System Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Starter

1. Before upgrading to windows 7, you must check the specification of your acer aspire 5315.

2. Windows 7 is better than windows vista but if you are really wanted those acer programs to work. You have to downgrade your operating system from your previous operating system.
