    It is my understanding that using the Acer eRecovery partition, will wipe out all personal documents, (My Pictures, My Videos, My Music, and any documents in My Documents folder) Also downloaded programs, and applications, plus programs, and applications the owner has installed. Hence my additional questions in a Clarification post, on your Awaiting Solution.

Aspire One's Have a Recovery Partition that's accessable by using the ALT and F10 Keys Upon Booting...

Try it several times if not sucessful the first time ... Though your model might not have a recovery partition, in that case you will need to either reinstall windows using A USB Flash Drive Or by using an external CD/DVD Drive

*** Remove any external monitor as it will make entry into BIOS utility and recovery process difficult. ***

The following is from pages 29-30 of the 52-page D250 UserGuide.pdf located in folder C:\Book

I want to restore my computer to its original settings without recovery CDs.
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 during POST (Power On Self Test).
To start the recovery process:
1. Restart the system.
2. While the Acer logo is showing, press + at the same time to enter recovery process.
3. Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.
Important! This feature occupies 6 GB in a hidden partition on your hard disk.

I have had to replace my hard drive on my pc how can i get my music back on to pc from my ipod and back into i tunes


Backing up your iTunes library to a CD or DVD To burn a CD (CD-R or CD-RW), your computer must have a compatible CD burner. To burn a DVD (DVD-R or DVD-RW), your computer must have a compatible DVD burner. Check in iTunes Preferences to see if a drive is compatible. See below for steps.
To create your backup disc
  1. Choose File > Library > Back up to Disc.
  2. Select the option you want from the resulting dialog and click Back Up.
  3. The two options you can select from are:
    • Back up entire iTunes library and playlists
    • Back up only iTunes Store purchases
    Whichever of these two options you choose, note that you can also choose "Only back up items added or changed since last backup" to perform an incremental backup.
  4. Insert a blank disc (CD or DVD) into your computer's optical drive. iTunes will scan the disc and begin burning.
  5. Note: If the disc you insert does not have enough space to hold all of the content you will be backing up, a dialog will appear asking whether you wish to backup to multiple discs. You can click Data Discs to continue.
iTunes burns the number of items that fit on one disc and then asks you to insert subsequent discs to continue burning the remaining files. Don't eject a disc while a backup is in progress.
Spoken programs purchased from the Audible.com website are not backed up.
Discs you create using the iTunes backup feature can be used only to restore; they can't be played in a CD or DVD player.

Restoring from a backup disc
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Insert your backup disc.
  3. iTunes will ask whether you want to restore from this disc. Click Restore.
Check drive compatibility
  1. Choose a playlist on the left side of the iTunes window.
  2. Click the Burn Disc button on the bottom right corner of iTunes.
  3. If the drive is listed, it's compatible.

  4. In the VAIO Recovery Center window, under Choose a program , click to select the desired option: NOTES:

Corrupt or missing file but have no disc drive as it is a note book please install a copy of above program windows root system32 ntoskrnl.exe


IF YOU ARE USING A NOTEBOOK, IN MOST CASES YOU SHOULD HAVE A RESTORATION PARTATION ON YOUR HARD DISK.
If this file on your CD/DVD is corrupt, the chances are good it will find many more needed to complete the installation.
Find your restoration partation or get a good working copy or XP to install from.

  • This model does not require Recovery CDs. Recovery data is included on a special partition of the hard drive.
  • Do not interrupt the power during the recovery process.
  • Before performing a recovery, disconnect any external devices not supplied with the computer such as printers, network cables, cameras, or external storage devices, like hard drives or flash drives.
