I have a acer aspire one KAV60,i forgot to make a recovery disk or in short i just learn that it necessary to make a eRecovery disk...im using it almost a 2 yrs now.so my question,im planning to reinstall...


Some Viruses DO attach to the files in the recovery set up. They can also replicate themselves in files used to go back to an earlier time when things where running ok. The best thing to do is clean the system of any Viruses, Many good FREE programs on the net, Search for Malwarebytes, This is a very good free anti malware program, then Avast antivirus. Free to use and very good up to date programs.

How to install Recovery disc on your laptop/computer


Formally, when you purchase a laptop or desktop computer, an operating system disc comes with it. But these days, such disc does not come with most laptop or desktop computer because it is already installed in them which is called recovery disk. This has a great advantage, because if it was on a disc, it will have a scratch and it cannot last forever because it might get lost or damaged. So, having it already installed on your laptop or desktop computer by your computer's manufacturer is a very good idea.

Most people are not aware that this recovery disc is on their laptop or desktop computer. And some might know, but don't know how to use or install it.

A Recovery disk is used to repair windows operating system when it has a virus or when operating system is malfunction. Reinstalling windows with recovery disks helps to recover your computer from any damage.

First, you need to confirm whether your laptop or desktop computer has a recovery disk on it or not. To confirm, click Start Menu, scroll to "My Computer" and click on it. Beside your system's "Local disk (C:)" you should find "RECOVERY (E:)" Click on the recovery disc and you should find a golden padlock with "RECOVERY" in front of this. Also confirm the and make sure it's is a minimum of 6GB.

Now, to install/run your system's recovery disk, go to;"Start menu" > "All Programs" > "Backup & Recovery" > "Recovery Manager". Read and follow instructions and you will definitely perform the recovery successfully.

Lastly, make sure you perform the recovery white your laptop adapter plugged to AC and do not run the recovery on battery. There must not be interruption of any kind in the process of the installation.

Good luck.

How to format toshipa satellite L200 laptop


All new Toshiba laptops ship from the factory with the ability to run the system recovery process from a hard disk partition, and with preinstalled software that can be used to record recovery media to blank discs. Toshiba recommends creating recovery media to ensure the ability to run a system recovery even if the hard disk recovery partition is damaged or deleted, or if the hard disk breaks. Reconditioned laptops may not include this recovery enabling software so may require that recovery media be purchased.

Recovery media can be ordered online. Click here to begin the order process. There is no charge for the software itself, for which customers already own licenses, and as of 10/1/10 the shipping and handling charges for delivery of recovery media in the US is $24.95 for DVD media or $34.95 for USB sticks.

I need a recovery disk for gateway nx860s, do you know where i can find a free download?


The recovery software for the Gateway NX860s is stored on the hard drive itself. As long as you have the original hard disk drive and have not repartition the drive the information is probably still there.

You can create recovery CD's by doing the following.
  • Click Start->Run
  • Type the following, including the quotation marks on the run line: "C:\WINDOWS\CREATOR\CD Creator.exe" /drv
  • Click 'Burn ISO'
  • click 'Start Creation'
  • Select either CD or DVD depending on which type of media you are writing to and click 'OK'
  • The application will copy the files to your disk, when it's complete click 'OK'
If you are not able to run the recovery application but believe that the recovery files are still on the hard disk drive then you will need to run a recovery on the system being rebooting and pressing F11 when prompted to start a system recovery. The actual recovery will restore you access to the files to later create a back up cdrom.

I need to format my Thinkpad laptop


If you have a system recovery disk set, just run it. Make sure that your bios has your optical drive (cd drive) as the first boot item.

If you have no recovery disk set, you can use any retail version of windows, and download/install all the necessary device drivers from www.ibm.com

Slow computer -how to restore a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro v1000


If the units are running slow, you can do some maintenance on them to speed them up.

First, run defragmenter on both units.(in Safe mode)

Download ScrubXP which will automatically clear your temp, cookies and TIF files.

Download CCleaner and run it.

Run your Anti-virus program: download the free version of AVG. (Great virus protection.)

Other programs to use are SpyBlaster and Winpatrol, all of which are free.
