Hey, i have an acer 5315 windows vista.ive got a virus on the hard disc and so i tried reinstalling but i dont have the options to do so? i did the alt + F10 but still no options? Does anyone know any tricks or tips,buttons i need to press for reformatting? Even on safe mode it wont load, it just gets stuck and blue screen appears and then freezes.

you might need to reformat and reinstall the OS for this one... if you want, you can try repairing the OS first using the windows operating system disc and if it doesnt fix it then reformat and reinstall OS...
Reformatting will wipe the drive clean and you will need to reinstall windows, either from the rescue CD or from other media. You may be able to contact Acer and order a replacement CD and install it using the OEM license originally sold with your machine.
If it is merely a problem that programs are not running correctly or that something has corrupted the computer, see if there is a good restore point that you can use from "System Restore." This may allow you to fix the problem and remove the offending program without having to go through the trouble of reformatting and finding the replacement disk.
Finally, since you say that it is Vista, it should be a relatively new machine and it may have a restore partition instead of a rescue disk. If this is the case, there should be a utility in your programs from acer that will allow you to restore the computer to its original form. This will typically reboot the computer and handle the format / reinstall for you. It's possible your friend can't find the disk because he didn't have one.
Just a heads up, typically you can not use a rescue disk from another machine (different make or model) as it will check the hardware configuration before installing the software to make sure it matches the machine the disk shipped with. It is not serial number specific though.
pls check the the power cable and battry states and after thye are working .ok fine next setp
formatted the laptop usenig a win xp cd .............and check it same times vista need high configartion .......ok
hey i believe u got some problems somewhere with ur windows think est thing to do is take it bk if that is not possible to get it replaced for another 1 then simply reinstall windows vista think they are around 86.00 on sale at pc world if u can get that place disc in drive u will need boot laptop from disc by changing settions in bios then click install now u will see a bit where u can format the partition ur windows is already on format that then reinstall ur new windows on that partition mate
acer dont have a restore, you are prompted when you first boot it up when purchased to make a back up set of discs, i assume you didn't, you will need to lend somebodies XP or Vista Disc , but use your own product code on the underside of your notebook to reformat and reinstall windows.
i would try to reinstall xp on the first and largest hard drive and go from there, reformat, and start from the begining. there should be no problem if you do this as long as you have a legit copy of xp and reformat.
