Hi,
if the system is not going beyond to the acer logo then try the following
1.check whether it is going in BIOS or not.if it is going then this is the issue with HDD otherwise M/B
2.the HDD could be backed up but u will have to take it out from the machine and connect to any other computer
3.OR u will have to use any third party tool for data backup so contact the nearest vender if u are not that much computer savvy

Thanks.

    if it goes to bios then might be the issue with the HDD.To take the backup of your HDD you will have to use bootable cd of any backup tool or u can do the installation of OS in the other drive and copy ur date in following way
    1.boot from the disk and then choose the another location.
    2.choose any other folder name when it asks for.
    3.dont format and leave the file system as it is.
    4.when OS is installed then backup the data and then do the clean installation.

If your computer can't fully start into windows the way I back those up is use an EIDE/USB converter (should be available in most computer stores) and all you have to do is remove the HD from your laptop plug it into the converter and plug the converter into working computer and pull all the files onto it and do whatever you need with it (ex back it up to dvd etc..)

    Don't confuse yourself. Pull the HDD and put it in a converter so you can use it on another computer to recover the data.

I need a acer aspire one happy recovery disk


The Acer Aspire One Netbook has a hidden partition on its hard disk drive which allows recovery of
1. operating system to original factory image (with no recovery disk required)
2. applications (selectable)
3. drivers (selectable)
If the netbook came with pre-installed Windows XP, use Acer eRecovery Management by
1. pressing start button at bottom left corner of Taskbar
2. hover cursor over All Programs then Acer Empowering Technology
3. then click on Acer eRecovery Management and follow subsequent recovery instructions
Alternatively, on powering up, press Alt and F10 together while Acer logo is showing.
If this doesn't work, there is the possibility that the D2D recovery is not enabled for startup.
To enable D2D recovery,
1. press F2 on powering up to get into the startup utility
2. cursor over to the Main tab
3. cursor down to D2D and enable it.
4. save changes when exiting - system will reboot
5. again, press Alt and F10 together while Acer logo is showing.

How to reboot my acer aspire 3690 to factory condition


On startup you will see a message on the acer splash screen to get into "SETUP". This will either be the DEL key or the F2 key.

Go into your BIOS and make sure that D2D recovery is enabled. If you do not see this D2D option then you can exit and should not have to adjust anything else.

when you restart the PC again, hold down the ALT and tap on the F10 key, this will start the recovery partition and load your system to factory default.

This option will only work if you still have your original hard drive in the PC and you have not reformated or reinstalled windows from another media souce.

D2d recovery


Hi there
You want to restore your computer to its original settings without
recovery CDs?
This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps below to rebuild your C: drive.

Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.
1 To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during boot up.
2 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.
3 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.
4 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.
To start the recovery process:
1 Restart the system.
2 While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to
enter the recovery process.
3 Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.

Good luck and Merry Christams

D2d recovery


Hi,

Unfortunately once your original HDD has been replaced you lose all e-recovery features and there is no-way this can be reversed.

If you could get hold of the image from your old drive you maybe able to write it to your new, its a bit messy though.

The main reason for the "factory default image backup" you have not working now is because a snapshot of the C: drive is stored on D: drive so when you replaced the drive itself you basically made that disc useless for eRecovery features.

Sorry its bad news.

Cheers
