How to restore fatory settings without the cd acer aspire 5740g windows 7 home premium windows is not booting n auto recovery that is alt+f10 is also not working but the recovery partition still exist
For all Acer Netbooks try to initiate the recovery using Altgr key (righthand side of the space bar) and F10, ie Altgr+F10 as soon as the computer restarts. If the recovery partion is corrupted or do not have the CD. Try the below steps:
No Restore CD / eRecovery / password / ALT + F10 or F10
1 - Recovery of data on the hidden partition PQSERVICE for password
A - Installing the software R-Drive Image to create an image of this partition (this file has the extension. ARC)
B - Always with this software, create a virtual disk logic to see the files
C - From the desktop, go to the newly created virtual disk and find the file aimdrs.dat. The open with the notepad and get the password.
2 - Reactivating the ALT + F10
A - Always on the virtual disk created, find 2 files: mbrwrwin.exe and rtmbr.bin.
B - Copy these 2 files on drive C: \
C - Since the MS-DOS (Pocket PC) to C: \, type the following command: mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin
D - The function has been reactivated.
3 - Start of Restoration
A - At the start of the PC, go to the set-up to check if the function is well on D2D enabled (normally it is a default setting ... but hey you never know.)
B - Once the audit and that the PC has restarted once the ACER logo appears, simultaneously press ALT + F10 to start the restore utility.
C - When it asks for the password, you need to type one found in the file aimdrs.dat. CAUTION: The keyboard is QWERTY mode so we thought enter his password, but as some letters are reversed, it does not work.
4 - Normally at this stage there ... everything works and restoration is smooth.
Note: If the operating system does not work, it is possible to do this from another PC by connecting the hard drive or USB slave
i found this helped me with exactly the same problem you have on the 7540g aspire laptop
use the ALTGR on the right hand side of keyboard not the ALT on the left hand side of the keyboard along with F10 i tried it with just the ALT on the left side nothing happened but when used ALTGR on right side it woeked and reset everything back to factory settings then went to acer site and downloaded missing drivers hope this helps you out
