I have a Acer aspire desktop computer m1100 and when I bought it did not come with a recovery disk and I did not make the cd because I was unaware of how to do it. Now the computer will not boot with out a...


by default the hard drive should have a recovery partition. go to the support section of the manufactures website and you should find detailed instructions of how to boot to the partition. if that option has been corrupted, you can purchase a recovery disc directly from acer. i've ordered nearly a hundred for customers in the past and have never paid more than 20.00 for a disc or disc set.

below you will find a link that will allow you to enter your product serial number and direct you to the purchase of a factory recovery cd/dvd.

COMPUTER PROBLEM


You're computer is still good and will work fine after an operating system reload. You can order a set of recovery discs directly from Acer, or you can purchase an operating system disc from Walmart or Bestbuy, either way will work. Keep in mind that if you order recovery discs from Acer that the operating system and the drivers for your machine will be included. If you just purchase an operating system disc, then you will have to go to Acer's support site and down load any drivers that you need after the install. Also, check in the set up to see if the machine is still recognizing the hard drive. If it doesn't, you may have crashed the drive during the interruption.

HP MEDIA CENTER 864N Desktop PC&p RECOVERY CD


NOTE: Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a hidden space (partition) on the hard drive to store the recovery information. Using a hidden partition provides a convenient, more stable recovery solution.
Step 1: Create a set of recovery discs or a recovery DVD
To create the recovery disc set, Click Start , All Programs , PC Help & Tools (or similar), open the HP or Compaq Recovery CD-DVD Creation software, and follow the on-screen directions.
If you cannot create recovery discs or your discs have become damaged, continue to the next step.
Step 2: Order recovery CDs on the Web
If you are not able to create a set of recovery discs, you may be able to order a set of replacement discs from HP. HP maintains a stock of replacement recovery discs for several years after the product has been released. However, because of licensing restrictions, HP is only able to provide these recovery discs for a limited time. If your computer is several years past its warranty period, HP may not be able to supply replacement discs for your computer. If this is the case, you can install a new operating system that meets the minimum system requirements of your computer, or, alternatively, upgrade your computer hardware.
To find out if HP has recovery discs that you can order and to order them from HP, use the following steps:
NOTE: The steps in this section apply to United States and Canada. For Europe, Middle East, and Africa please refer to the HP support document Europe, Middle East, and Africa - Statement on the Availability of the Recovery Software on CD . For other countries/regions, contact your local HP support center for information about obtaining recovery CDs.
Go to the Software & Driver Downloads page .
Enter the product number or model name for your computer into the field provided.
Figure 1: Product name/number field
7195023.gif
Click the operating system link (the version of Windows that came with your computer).
Figure 2: Example of operating system link
f96d267.gif
Find the Recovery Disc ordering section and click the link to start the ordering process.
NOTE: Before trying to order, make sure that you have read the important "Read this..." information listed in this Recover Disc ordering section.
Note: - If the link to order a recovery disc set is not available, there may not be any more sets available for purchase. HP cannot create recovery discs that contain a version of Windows that has been obsoleted by Microsoft, such as Windows 95, 98, and Me. Some recovery disc sets may have run out of stock and may not be available to order.
Figure 3: Recovery disc ordering links
7640107.gif
Follow the directions from the "Read this...” article and from the ordering pages to complete the ordering process.
NOTE: The ordering pages use a secure connection to protect your privacy.
If you cannot create a recovery disc set and you cannot order a recovery disc set from HP, go to the next step.
Step 3: Contact Support
If you have tried the steps 1 and 2 and could not create or obtain a recovery disc set, contact HP Customer Care . HP Customer Care may be able to send out new discs or replace defective versions depending on your situation and availability.
