Hey, do you mean that no picture comes to the screen when you power it on?

If so there is most likely a hardware issue, you should take the laptop to a local repair service, or get it warranty repaired.

Acer travelmate 4202 recovery disc

You can, if available, purchase a Recovery disk from Acer. That said, if you have a Recovery Partition, By rebooting and using the restore/recovery ALT+ F-10 keys. On page 59 : and this may be useful: IF you are doing a Factory recovery on a XP Machine, I would put on a pot of coffee. I recently did the same, with hundreds of Windows and Computer manufacturer's update it took 36 hours stright. Good Luck.

How do i do a system rebuild on a acer travelmate 2410 series 2413NWMLi , the <alt> <f10> does not bring anything up

If your computer does not have a hidden partition for OS recovery, a recovery CD will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
Order the Recovery Media from Acer
  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.

Hi this is prince here from Bangladesh. i have a laptop that is acer travel mate 420. a few days ago its display is not working properly. some times it turn into various color. so what can i do?

Hi Prince, has your laptop experienced a squeeze or fall recently? I have a few suggestions. Plug another monitor into the VGA or DVI connection on your laptop. See if you are getting the same problem. If everything is working fine on the external monitor you would have eliminated the drivers being the problem. I suggest getting the LCD display changed. If your laptop is under warranty, you can get this done for free. However, if it is not under warranty you may have to replace it either yourself or take it to a local Acer specialist. If you chose to install the new display yourself, there are handy tutorials on removing and installing the screen on the Acer website. I have noticed that many times the Acer TravelMate Notebooks have experienced display issues. I hope you get your problem resolved soon.
Thanks for using!!

Ive installed 160gb seagate 2.5 ide hard drive in my acer 2303lc when i put in recovery cd it says invalid system disk,replace the disk and press any key but when i press the key nothing happens ,its a new...


Do you have more of those recovery discs? are you sure you have the right one inserted?

I remember on my acer I first had to enter a system disc, then when asked the two recovery discs.

If your unable to get it working with those cds I would suggest you get your hands on a original windows xp or vista installation cd and install windows from it.

also have you tried to enter the boot menu on start up? when you power up it says on some corner of the screen what button to press to get it to open the boot menu and then select the cd/dvd rom drive.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Acer travelmate 2420

Hello! :)
The first thing I would have you do is to shutdown the computer (Hold the power button until the system turns off) and retry the format. Are you using a Microsoft XP disc or a recovery disc? If your not sure just post with all of the text that appears on the CD.
