All documents, programmes and data on the disc cannot be easily restored as they have been deleted. There are several companies that offer a restore service but can be very expensive.

SOURCE: can someone walk me through a system restore for an acer 5100

System restore to an earlier date, or system recovery to original condition.

For the first, you can do from the help and support menu > undo changes made to my computer.

For the second, tap the alt button and the F10 button together after you turn the machine on, and it should take you to the recovery mode.

Good luck mate, and rate me well, OK?

Try cleaning the disk in soap and water / dry with a microfiber cloth or cotton towel . Then try your disk. If you don't get the proper response then I suspect a corrupt data disk or a malfunctioning DVD.

You should be able to boot the computer from the operating system recovery disk. Most likely your harddrive crashed, or one of (many) other issues. It could have just erased your MBR, in which case you can boot with a live cd and recover most (if not all) of your data.

My notebook toshiba satellite a135 s2386 didn,t unknow device for usb and than my notebook not response all fuction usb


Try to do the system restore.
Go back in the previous settings (or previous date) of your laptop, when the USB ports where still working fine.

Here's how to do system restore.
  1. Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.
  2. Click on the System Restore program icon.
  3. Choose the Choose a different restore point radio button and then click Next >.
    Note: The default choice is Recommended restore. This restore point is probably the most recent automatically created one and is likely the best choice. However, for purposes of demonstrating the entire System Restore process in Windows Vista, I'll be continuing with the longer process of choosing a restore point manually.
  4. Choose the restore point that you want to use.
    Note: Check the Show restore points older than 5 days checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
    Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows Vista created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows Vista changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
  5. Click Next >.
  6. Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
    Note: Windows Vista will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before proceeding.
    Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.
  7. Click Yes to the Are you sure you want to continue? dialog box.
  8. System Restore will now restore Windows Vista to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose in Step 4.
    Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
  9. Immediately after logging in after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
  10. Click Close.
  11. Check to see if whatever Windows Vista problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
    If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
    If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.

No sound please help inspiron lap top not


Did you ever have sound. If you did, depending on the version of windows use the system restore feature. Windows XP can go back months, while Vista can only about a month when you show restore points older than 5 days. Just search for the system restore feature for your operating system. Use the help menu to locate the program (In vista it will be named differently but the help menu will show you where it is).
