Acer recovery download

Did you lose just the files that you saved on the hard drive? Or did you lose all of the programs and files? Either way you needed to make your own recovery disk before you lost the information. It is too late to get a recovery disk made after you lost everything. You will have to purchase the programs (software such as windows 7) again. If you just lost just what you saved in the files (pictures, resume, etc.), then it is gone forever.

I wish to reset my toshiba back to factory settings how do i go about doing it

We get a lot of questions here on FixYa about how to restore factory settings. Here is your solution for your model. Toshiba has added a hidden partion on the hard drive to restore the original "out of the box" (OOB) experience. Just follow the following steps:


1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.

Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.

2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.

3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.

4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.

5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.

6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.

7) Click Next to Start recovery.

Hope this helps FixYa! If you found this solution helpful, please show some love and rate it up. Testimonials are also always wecome!

Restore factory settings

On some computers, the disk-drive is "partitioned" into two parts -- your 'C:' drive and a 8GB "recovery" partition. If so, then when you start-up your computer, there is an option to boot from that Recovery Partition, and to reinstall Windows.

On some computers, there is software that lets you burn your own CD/DVDs that can then be used to reinstall Windows. Have 4 or 5 "blank" DVD disks, or 8 to 10 "blank" CD disks, before you run this software.

If you have "lost" the original disks, contact LG. For a small fee, they will ship you a replacement "System Recovery" CD/DVD set of disks.

I have a loptop of Acer Aspire5520.I have to formate now but i lost my system backup & restore disk.How can i get this backup.Pls let me know.

Normally , acer laptops have a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive , which contains all of the recovery data so you dont need the recovery discs.

When you boot up your computer and you get the Acer logo etc , try pressing keys to start the recovery - this puts everything back to factory default settings and erases your data.

Also , A program ships with the laptop called 'Acer Empowering Technology - eRecovery' which allows you to burn your own recovery disc - You then use this disc to perform a complete system restore.

I can't do a full system recovery

It's very possible that your hard drive has failed, and the recovery is stopping because it's unable to read/write to/from the drive. Try a new hard drive.
