My Acer Aspire 5004WLMi Crashed and will not boot with Acer recovery disks

This computer suddenly would not start Windows. I made the mistake (I think?) of assuming it was the hard drive loosing it's will to live and changed out the hard drive. That was not the problem... I"M AN IDIOT!!! Okay, soooo moving on. I put the Acer hard drive back in and tried again to use the recovery disks.

I set the bios to boot from the cdrom and I get this message.

"File \i386\System32\ntoskrnl.exe could not be loaded.
The error code is 4

Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit."

What the? Can any of you guys help?

Have you tried to press F8 when the system boots ( initial screen ) and tried the safe mode or last known good configuration ?

If this does not help, try a recovery disk and it should work.

Sounds like the hard drive has crashed. You can try pressing F8 repeatedly as soon as you start the boot process and see if that gets you to the windows repair option. From there you can try to do a repair or restore to factory settings. Otherwise buy a new hard drive and restore with your recovery cd.

Recovery For ACER 3660

If you have recovery disk try starting them from Windows, or start computer with disk inside and chose 'boot from cd'.
After booting from recovery disc chose complete recovery.
Save a backup of your data, as complete recovery may delete the data.
If recovery disk does not work you will have to install Windows from a generic Windows setup disk, in this case refer to manual for how to.

Here is the user manual, check from page 82

Restore to factory default

Perform a system recovery:
Acer computer's do not ship with recovery CD's - there is a program that allows you to burn the disks or recover.
3 ways to recover:

1. If in Windows - Start - Programs - Acer empowering technology - Acer E-recovery management -
click on Restore at bottom then "Restore to factory default settings"
2. Or click on Burn disks instead of Restore
3. If unable to boot into Windows then tap Alt/F10 during boot right after Acer splash screen when starting up the computer.
4. This will start the Acer E-recovery program - choose Factory Default Settings and follow instructions.
