Backups from the windows program rarely are effective, use another application like nero backitup or try this one:

Norton gohst, this bundled smart porogram allows you to copy an entire partition into another HDD.

FAT, FAT32, NTFS, Linux partitions are allowed.

The limitation: works only on DOS

    HDD means hard disk drive..Partition means you have divided your hard drive into 2 sub drives.For example, if your hard drive's total capacity is 40GB and you want it will be divided depends on what your savings diskspace will be(like 20GB in drive C: and 20GB in Drive D: in just one hard drive.)


    1.) Locate your My Computer icon on your desktop,double click on it by pressing left button of your mouse.

    2.) After clicking it, the My Computer window is displayed. Locate the drive C: and as well with drive D:(if it is displayed).

    3.) If it has 2 sudrives( C: and D:) and you have only one hard drive, it means it was partitioned.

    If still you don't understand.Let me know..

    Here's another option..

    Double click on my Computer on Desktop using your left button of your mouse.

    After opening the My Computer window,locate the drive C: icon,right click on it the left click the properties.

    After you open the properties window,locate the tool tab at the upper portion of the properties window.

    After you locate the tool tab,click the back-up now button.

    Read the instructions of the backup wizard then put a check mark on "always start in wizard mode" checkbox, then click next button.

    Click the "backup files and settings checkbox then click Next.

    Click the "all information on this computer" checkbox then click Next.

    Click choose a place to save your backup then click browse the locate drive D:(if partitioned) then click next.

    Then click finish...

    Don't worry about the genuine product,it the same!!

Restore recovery disk

Hi Billy,
depends on what you mean by restore. Assuming you have windows installed, you can make a back-up by going to START > Control Panel > System and Security > Create a backup

(the path above may be a bit off from the wording, the PC I am on at the moment is not an english version.)

Then on the left side there is a link to create a recovery disk or create a backup. the recovery disk option only makes a bootable disk to start your computer if your windows cannot start. This only gives you an enviroment where you can try to fix windows or to restore a backup that you created beforehand with the second option above.

If you create a backup, there are two things to keep in mind... what type of data do you want to back up and how often. You can put check marks on all data that you want to backup (Note: the more data you backup the larger your backup file will be). If you plan on restoring a corrupt windows with the backup you should include "System State".

Restoring from a backup file a.k.a. backup image will ONLY give you back the files that were on your computer at the time you made the backup... that means everything that you created after you made the backup will be lost.

Hope that helps.

I upgraded windows from service pak 2 to service pak 3 then my windows encountered a problem what shall i do?

You can remove the service pack by click Start -- > Control Panel -- > Add/remove programs. If not, use the backup disc you created upon installing windows. If you didn't create or don't have one, use the original install disc.

Yes it is. But it used together with the Windows 7 Backup and Restore Center (Control Panel - Backup and Restore). If you set up the backup setting in this option, make a backup, and create a restore disk you will be able to restore your system in the event of a problem. Please note that it will restore the system as it was on the day you made the backup.

I need to re-install windows XP, I dont have the setup disc. Does Acer have a backed up copy of windows on a seperate partiton? If so, how can I access it?

Windows XP cannot be reinstalled unless you have your original ACER backup disks included with your purchase. Sorry, but if you don't have these, you'll need to purchase a copy of XP. BestBuy has the best prices...

Boot DVD

you dont need to slipstream the disc with SP 2 or SP 3 but if you want to you can following this guide :

Guide on how to slipstream windows xp with a service pack of your choice

If you get stuck let me know

But basically you create 2 folders on your C drive or on your desktop call one xp disc and the other one service pack

copy everything from the xp disc into the xp disc folder and then download and install iso buster ( download link )

And extract the img file as per the guide and then follow the burning instructions with regards to adding the img file using nero or a burning application. If you dont have nero and want to know how to use the img to make it bootable post back with what burning software you have and what version it is and I will find and post back with a relevant guide
