SOURCE: d2d recovery

Send me an e-mail and I will send you the fix! If you can't downloadload it from the below link. I had the same problem. The mbr was replaced, you have to add RTMBR.BIN to the MBR and it will work again. As long as you can get on your desktop and run this bat file you will repair the D2D again. Took me an hour to learn what was wrong, It works 100% though.

 

I have the Aspire 5610Z with the 2GB 533 mhz memory Stock.

SOURCE: 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)

SOURCE: asking a BIOS "Enter CURRENT Password".

Its very simple. You can reset it by removing the CMOS battery and then putting it back in. You will have to remove the back panel of the laptop to get to it. This is what a CMOS battery looks like http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000239.htm

My Acer aspire r11 laptop just wouldn't turn on the Acer logo appears on the screen and then the screen goes blank for 3secs and then it repeats?


Pull the battery out and unplug the charger. Turn the laptop over and press the on/off button 3 or 4 times. Turn it over again, re-install battery and power on again while pressing F8. This should take you into safe mode. If It turns on in safe mode, get back with me and I'll lead you through a diagnostics test.

When i turn on laptop, i get blank screen with blinking curser and can not do anything


This indicates a hard drive issue or windows files have been corrupted, try a full recovery of windows, if you have the backup disc all the better, if not power the computer, wait for acer logo press ALT key and tap F10 until it goes into recovery, if nothing happens have your hardware tested.

Acer aspire one go to f8 and safe mode nothing happens


Seems like your OS is corrupted, you will have to try a full system recovery by trying Alt+F10 past the Acer boot logo.
You will lose all your datas when you do a recovery.

Factory reset for Aspire one without disk and alt + F10 doesnt work


The disk-to-disk recovery may be disabled preventing the Alt + F10 key sequence running eRecovery. To enable disk-to-disk recovery, you must do the following... (do not have an external monitor attached)
1. activate the BIOS utility by pressing F2 during Power On System Test (while Acer logo displayed)
2. select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen
3. find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use F5 and F6 keys to set this value to Enabled
4. exit the BIOS utility and save changes.
The system will reboot.
5. while the Acer logo is showing, press the Alt key and the F10 key at the same time repeatedly
6. wait as Acer eRecovery starts up then follow onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.

Alternatively to the above, if Windows can be accessed, the recovery can be done by launching Acer eRecovery Management by running the program from the Acer Empowering Technology program group in the Start menu.

I have installed Windows 7 to my Acer Aspire One AOD255 but i want to revert it back to Windows XP and I no longer have the Windows.old folder. How can i downgrade it back?


If it originally came with Windows XP and it has the recovery partition still untouched (assuming the disk hadn't been formated to only one partition), you might recover the system from the hidden recovery partition.

To initiate this process, switch on the laptop and press F10 when the ACER logo appears (some computers need you to press ALT and F10 together, instead of the F10 only. If the Acer Recovery Management starts, you just have to follow the instructions to recover your system.

If nothing happens after pressing F10 or ALT and F10, you will need to get a Windows XP installation CD and a external CD drive to reinstall the whole system.

In this case, first you have to enter setup by pressing F2 at boot time, as soon as the ACER logo appears in the screen. Then, you will need to switch the SATA Mode to IDE from AHCI.



Select: Main -> SATA Mode -> IDE



This is done to allow Window XP to see your SATA.as an IDE disk and install the system.



When you get the external USB CD/DVD driver to use with a Windows XP installer CD, connect it to you laptop, switch it on and press F2 again to enter Setup.



This time, scroll over to the BOOT menu and press Enter. Scroll down to the last option USB CD- Rom and then use the F5 key to move it to the top of the boot list order. Then press Escape and then F10 and finally Enter. The computer will restart and load the CD and you can start the installation of Windows XP.




Hope this info may help you!

I am trying to reinstall operating system. The instructions say to hit Alt F10 when the acer logo appears, but it goes directly to the Windows logo when I start it up.


Good morning

What the instructions should say is

BEAT THE F10 BUTTON TO DEATH

I know, it sounds mean, but you have to press it fast and ALOT to get this to actually work.

Have a great weekend

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
