Unable to access Window Vista

Unable to access Windows Vista, I purchased the system recovery disks from Acer. When I tried to run them, I get to the 2nd in the 1 0f 2 set, and get the error message, "Recovery 32, Type Mismatch". So, I downloaded and burned the iso file "initialHDD" that tech support suggested, ran it then it said it was okay to run the system recovery disks and the same thing is still happening.......been working on this all day and am in the same place I started.......UGH! Somebody please help me........

    We were instructed by acer to download InitialHDD and burn it on a bootable disk?? So, searched around for the info to burn it and downloaded imgBurn program to burn iso image file, and burned the disk with it. Ran it and it said that it was completely erasing the hard drive, when it was finished it said it was okay to run the system recovery disks we purchased from acer, after running the first disk and being told to insert the second an error message comes up: "Recovery 32, Type Mismatch" and can't get past that.......any suggestions or links to info for this would be greatly appreciated!! I'm on the verge of losing what little mind I have left! Thank you so much for your help!

The problem is the disk is looking for a partion on the hard drive that is no longer there,the only way to fix this is to get an OEM version of vista and reinstall

    Is your system a 32 bit or 64 bit processor? (see here)

    I found this link but don't know how accurate the posting is...

    If there is more than one partition on the drive, make sure the partition you are installing to is formatted. (see here)

My acer aspire 5515 laptop system error window show when I try to boot. Hiw do I fix it?


so what i guess its giving mbr not found and its not booting , the solution is you need to have the windows operating system disk and then when your acer laptop starts to boot click on f8 then click on repair windows then after that you will see 3 option click on the third it will say repair cmd then type as what is given below


Click on the "Repair Your Computer" option to gain access to the System Recovery window. Now choose "Command Prompt" to run the Bootsect.exe utility. Bootsect is located inside the boot folder so change your directory to boot. Now run "bootsect /nt60 C:\" (without quotes) if you had Windows 7 initially installed in the C partition. Alternatively, you can run "bootsect /nt60 SYS" or "bootsect /nt60 ALL" (without quotes) to repair the system partition or all partitions. Eject the DVD and restart your computer. Your computer should now boot Windows 7 again.

Acer Process 4/12 eRecovery Management indicates that the recovery process never finished - you will have to run it all over again.
As for MS Office , it came as a one month trial in your laptop - if you had it for more than that then you bought it. In that case the activation key must still be in your possession, just insert it when asked.
In the absolute worst case (the reinstall never finishes, no matter what you try) you will have to get a separate recovery disk from

Hi,

Have you tried to press F8 when the system boots ( initial screen ) and tried the safe mode or last known good configuration ?

If this does not help, try a recovery disk and it should work.

Down loaded msn explorer 8 pc will not start up TMGR missing


The "TMGR" is a Windows Operating System component file.
This error might occur if the TMGR file is corrupted or missing.
However, as this is a Operating System Component file, you may resolve the issue by performing the below steps.
First, you may try performing the SFC Scan.
Performing the SFC Scan will automatically fix any damaged files or any errors in the Registry.
Steps to initiate the SFC Scan:
1) Open the RUN command window.
2) In the RUN command window, type "cmd" and press Enter.
3) In the Command prompt, type cd
4) Then. type cd Windows and press Enter.
5) Then type sfc /scannow and press Enter.
6) This will start the SFC Scan process.
The Computer might also ask for the Windows Operating System Disc.
Peforming the SFC Scan should resolve the issue with the TMGR file.
If the issue still persists, initiate the Disc checking process.

Perform a system recovery:
Does not come with recovery cd's - there is a program that allows you to burn the disks or
recover.
3 ways:

1. If in Windows - Start - Programs - Acer empowering technology - Acer E-recovery management -
click on Restore at bottom then "Restore to factory default settings"
2. Or click on Burn disks instead of restore
3. if unable to ge into Windows then Alt/F10 during boot right after Acer splash screen on startup

Computer restor back to factory set


Pressing F10 on start up, is not for acer laptops, you need to have done a back up when you first got it running and use e-recovery to recover from your 'D' drive. see this explanation http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_3680.html
