How old is the system? If you have not fully repartitioned & reformatted the drive, you should have an option or prompt while the system boots to either enter setup or a boot menu. If you choose that option {PRESS F8, or some function key}, it will put you at a menu to restore your system.

Most Acers, as well as any major computer companies come with a section of your hard drive set aside with what is called a "flat" of the factory install. This is either a compressed mirror or installation of what was on your system when you first opened the box.

You can find the details for your specific make/model by going to the support section of the acer website.

Aspire one kav 60 would not boot how to recover it or restore it???


Note: During the process, all data stored on your computer will be overwritten. This means all your files, such as email and photos, will be erased. Therefore, we recommend making a backup of all personal data before starting the recovery process.

To start the system recovery:

  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase the set online from the Acer Recovery Media Order Form..
Note: If your computer does not have an internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
  3. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
  4. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
  6. The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
  7. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.
    Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.
  8. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: if your computer is unable to run the Acer Recovery process, or errors occur during recovery, please contact Acer support.

How do I download a recovery disk free for an acer aspire 5920?


You most likely can't. OEM system builders...HP, Acer, Lenov, DELL usually don't provide a recovery disk with their laptops so they can charge you later when you need it. This is done to keep their costs down and increase profit.

Most cases, when you got your new laptop, there were instructions to "Create Recovery discs". But 99% of most users never do.

Result: you will need to call Acer and order the recovery discs or see if anyone has them on ebay/craigslist cheaper. Acer is best bet, so you don't end up with wrong or non-working discs and prolong your problem. Should be about $25-50 including shipping.

My Acer Aspire 5920 won't do a recovery


BSOD is caused by hardware error or driver error. Disconnect all hardware except the basic. Motherboard, monitor, memory, hard drive. Unplug the wireless, cd/dvd drive.
Start the computer and see if the the BSOD returns. If not, one by one add components until you see the BSOD.
If you continue to see this screen without any hardware attached, then you most likely have an onboard component failing. (audio/video/memory failure)
Download and run the MS DART cd and check hardware starting with memory then hard drive.

This should determine what device is failing, except video or audio.

If you have the systems recovery program or the discs, give that a try. Sounds like your start up files may be corrupted

I can not get my Acer Aspire 5920 to load after turning on.


Try to see if it will boot in safe mode, by pressing F8 while the laptop boots up. If it allows you to boot in safe mode, try to do a system restore when you know that laptop was working with no problems. You can do this by clicking on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date and time when you know that the laptop was working with no problems. If this does not work or you cannot boot in safe mode (be aware that everything will look big in safe mode and when the computer reboots if asked how you want to start windows, choose start windows normally), try doing a recovery. This will restore your computer to the factory default settings when you purchased it. You can do this by booting the computer, when the acer screen appears hold down the ALT key and continuously press F10, this will open the recovery manager and you can restore it from there.

I hope this helps
