Hit F8 a few times after you see acer logo and see if it will let you start windows in safe mode. Short of that not much you can do.

Acer 5315 will not start up windows


check the BIOS setup screen, when you get the ACER screen press F2 or F10 or the DEL or END or ESC key one of those will get you into the bIOS SETUP. Once there revise the boot order, make sure the CD is first to boot then HDD. Also review to see if the BIOS recosgnized the HDD. the symptom you are describing may be a bad HDD.

Can i back up my hard drive before doing a d2d recovery?


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..)

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. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option.
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

Possible reset


Acer Aspire 5315 has a restore partition to set it back to factory settings, which will keep your windows intact too, but reset everything like you just purchased it.

First boot up the computer and press F2 to enter the bios, make sure that D2D recovery is enabled. Then exit and press Alt + and tap F10 when the manufacturers name appears for example HP, Tiny, Hewlett Packard etc.. etc.. screen appears on boot. This will open the recovery program. Before you can run the program it will ask you for the password. This will be the password you chose when you first got you laptop. You may have chosen your user name password or left it blank. If you left it blank just press enter, if you did enter a password you will need to remember it, or try the word admin.

Once the system has been restored it will take time running a few checks, so be patient.

Also this will restore C:drive only, so the good thing is anything you have saved on D: drive will remain intact.

I hope this helps.

Erecovery


Check that it is enabled in the bios

Press F2 when you boot and go into bios, make sure that D2D recovery is enabled. Then save the changes and exit, to run the recovery program you need to press Alt and tap F10 on boot when the manufacturers screen appears.

I hope this helps

Acer Aspire 5315 has blank blue screen and will not run recovery disks


Try starting up in safe mode. To do this, press the F8 key immediately after the comuters posts & before windows starts to load. Then scroll to "Use last settings that last worked" & click on it.

D2d recovery


Is the d2d erecovery function enabled in the bios?

To check, activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during the POST; while the notebook PC logo is being displayed.

To enable D2D recovery ard disk recovery), select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen.

Find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the <F5> and <F6> keys to set this value to Enabled.

That should allow you to use the F10 function key to activate D2D.
* Note: D2D e-recovery is not in Acer Empowering Management.
AEM is a power management utility that supports ACPI (advanced configuration and power interface) which allows for maximum power conservation and maximum performance. (Managed by the windows OS)
