If you fully formatted the hard drive then most probably you have cleaned the PQservice division which might had recovery data; you can check this with the help of Computer Management console in Windows. It is in Windowssystem32compmgmt.msc. Also check the Disk Management and see what partitions you still have. Acer eRecovery Management won’t work if there is no default partition i.e. There should be E or D partition in order to run it.

Try www.download.com Here you might find your required software or else you have to ask the supplier to fix this problem for you. Hope this helps!

I want to reset it


Unlike other laptops, Acer laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer laptop to factory setting.

Step 1: Before starting your Acer laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer laptop to original factory settings.

Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your laptop data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.
