It runs for 5 minutes and then dies,trying again and wont star,wait 1hour and it starts for 5 minutes snd then dies.have new pump,new fuel filter,and coil replaced and still doing the same,what could be...

Have your exhaust system checked for restriction. That may be hard to do, unless you can get someone to come to you, get it towed, or have the wherewithall to do it yourself. Often, a clogged cat converter, will let enough exhaust through to idle when cold, but as the guts of the cat expand, the flow will be cut off. Not always the case, but I've seen it happen enough times to suggest it. Another way to check this, is to remove one or both(depending on your setup,) of the upstream(pre converter) o2 sensors. If this makes a big difference, suspect the cat.Also, when idling, does it start to run rough for a few seconds before it quits? If so, push the brake pedal when it begins to run poorly. An engine with a clogged exhaust will have very poor intake manifold vacuum, therefor, the vacuum assisted power brakes would feel much different. The brake pedal would seem very hard to push, as though the engine were not running. No guarantee,but that gives you some things to check. Let me know if you have any more questions. When I can't lay hands on the car, test it, hear it, or see it, this can be a bit of a process sometimes.Hang in there!

Hi I want to restore my computer to original factory settings. I can only find the F2 option into the BIOS menu and there is recovery centre. Plus it didn't come with a recovery disk. Do you have any...

Restart your Sony Vaio if it is already on. If it's off, turn it on
  • Press the F12 key on your Sony Vaio keyboard. This will enter the computer into the built-in restore mode. Note that depending on the model of Sony Vaio, you may have to press either the F11 key or the ESC key to enter this restore mode. This must be done before your operating system begins to load. If you see the Windows logo appear on screen, you'll have to restart and try again.

  • Choose the option on screen that is most appropriate to your needs. You will be presented with three options: you can either create a set of recovery discs, attempt to repair your operating system's installation, or restore your operating system. Repairing your operating system will attempt to fix your computer without deleting any of your personal files. Restoring your operating system will delete everything on your hard drive and return your computer to its original factory settings.

  • Wait for the restore process to complete. Depending on the type of restore you've tried, you may have to wait as little as a few minutes and as much as an hour or more. When the process is finished, the computer will automatically restart itselff

    How do reset my acer labtop to factory setting like restarting the whole thing erasing all data

    I dont know if this will work your notebook it work for acer 5515 so try it.
    On your Logo Boot ( this is when the acer name shows in your monitor) press "ctrl + f10" or if it doesnt work try "alt + f10"
    this must load the recovery system page. Now in the recovery system page
    Click on " Restore System to factory Default."
    Then click "Next", "Next" then "Ok"
    Just wait for the process to finish and when your asked for settings. just choose your own settings.
    Now after recovering to factory default. i suggest not to do anything until your pc has completed installing your drivers and various programs.
    If you see a "Acer" install toolbar at the bottom of your screen, your pc should restart after atleast 2 seconds.
    Now after reboot your pc should now be ready.
    Goodluck. Hope i help, please rate my solution , Thanks.

    I had to do a recovery last night everything was going fine until it started loading the system settings then the system just restarts itself and then comes up with an error saying that an unexpected error...

    Restore to factory settings:

    If you want to restore your computer to its original settings without

    recovery CDs.

    Note: If your system is the multilingual version, the operating

    system and language you choose when you first turn on the

    system will be the only option for future recovery operations.

    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 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.

    2 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.

    3 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.

    Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during POST.

    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.

    Important! This feature occupies 15 GB in a hidden partition on

    your hard disk

    I just restored my Acer 4315 to factory and then everything went ok until this pre system thing went on nonstoply. I waited and waited and it's still processing. The process stays 1/17 not changing a bit....


    Yes, that is the Acer preload program setup. May I ask why you performed a restore ? If this is a hard drive problem or a RAM problem, this might be what it does. Either it cannot process the request for installing 1/17 into RAM or has issues when it attempts to write this 1/17 files to disk.

    Reboot and see if the problem remains. Do another restore and recheck. Check both RAM and Hard drive for faults.

    My new acer works fine but there is something loading in the middle of the screen and i cant get rid of it .... how ?

    these are system set up routines, when you first boot up Acer laptops they configure themselves, then reboot about 4 times, to load all the drivers and pre installed software, but if its taking too long (hours) then you need to speak to Acer technical, see below for tel no.s

    Can't get it off my screen

    You most likely performed a system recovery. Please do not exit this process as this is vital for the proper setup and configuration after recovery. If you exit it prematurely, your system will not work at all. It is normal for it to stay on step 2 for at least 15 to 20 minutes. Configuration usually takes about 30 minutes total.

    "Setup Drive: Load Project -> Now working... -> Please wait...."

    I have 3 2480s and I use them professionally so I think I can help you. Looks as if you need to install the OS for the system. It seems as if it lost. You should have the OS on CD and if not contact RolandUS and get one. You would put in the OS into your CD burner and power up the unit. I would recommend Roland HD support be on the other end if you are brand new. They will walk you through. I was one of the first to buy the 2480 when it came out and the manual is just insane to learn.
