Acer 6930 recovery problem

Acer 6930 had a problem with windows being unstable so I ordered the restore discs everything went fine untill it asks for disc 2 then I click ok and the system freezes. Now the computer won't even boot, and everytime I try to restore back to factory defaults it freezes at the same spot. I have run memtest, and tested the hard drive on another computer and it works great. I am out of options what else can i do?

    The Drive is not the problem because all other boot discs run fine just not the acer recovery discs. I have even ordered a new set of discs from Acer and the discs fail at the exact same place. How can I just get windos vista onto the machine so it will work again?

About the only thing to try is to find another person with the same PC.

Remove the disk-drive from your computer.
Remove the disk-drive from the other computer,
and install your disk-drive.

Run the Restore Disks on that computer,
which will restore to _YOUR_ disk-drive.

When complete, remove the disk-drive, and reinstall it in your computer.
It should boot, and run properly.

Could it be your CD-ROM drive that is intermittently failing?

I purchased a acer aspire 6930 with windows vista from a friend and want to restore to out of box state but cannot succeed I've tried alt f10 but didn't work what else can I try

  • Press the "ALT" and "F10" keys as your Acer 6930 is starting up to launch the computer's built-in recovery utility.
  • Select the "Restore" option. This option allows you to reinstall Windows on top of Windows, which will fix your computer's problems without damaging or deleting your personal files.
  • Select "Next" to read a warning screen detailing the exact process that is about to happen to your Acer 6930.
  • Click "Finish." Your Acer 6930 will restore the version of Windows that is currently installed to its proper working order. When this process finishes, your Acer 6930 will automatically reboot, and you can use your computer once again.

    Were to find restore disk for acer 6930?

    There is no restore disk unless you burnt a ciopy of the recovery disks when it was first purchased, that can still be done if it boots ok to windows, its under acer erecovery manager where you can also run a recovery from the hidden recovery partion, but if not booting then press Alt + F10 immediately after powering on about every second and that will also take you to the recovery manager, if it has been completely wiped then you will have to purchase recovery dvd's from Acer.

    I need to know how to reset my acer aspire 6930 to factory settings!!!!!

    A slightly different model requires pressing Alt+F10 at the start up and following the prompts. This will wipe the hard drive though, so back up everything important first. You can probably still get the data even if it doesn't boot Windows.

    Most probably the intergrated Graphic on the mainboard of your Laptop is faulty. Too bad, you have to replace it from ACER or any authorised Vendors.
    If the cost is too expensive to repair, get a new Laptop/notebook.

    I have an acer aspire 6930 after a little over a year the hard drive crashed. I bought a new hard drive and also purchased the receovery discs from Acer but I keep receiving an error code restore failed...

    Sorry you are having trouble. I can help you with this. The "Format" command has been around for a long time. It used to be included on the start disks that came with Dos, Windows 95, and Windows 98. Now that the Operating Systems (OS) are much bigger and most pcs do not have floppy drives we have to use other methods to get to the format command. Now comes the hard part. Format is a DOS command. To use you have to be at the c: prompt. It is still included in most OS's but the trick is to get to it. Try this: Boot to the CD that contains your OS. Then search the disk for the format command. Once you know you have it you will have to pick the option to goto the recovery console. Here you will have to have the administrator password to continue. If you need more info please ask

    Try system restore. During the boot sequence press F11 and follow the instructions. If it fails, try with your installation disk.
