Sorry about that. The posted suggestion would be fine, but I reformated the original Acer hard drive. Now I'm trying to reload the original Acer Windows XP from the repair disks and getting the error message already mentioned. Can you help?

I have an acer 5315-2326 and I reformated the hard drive and tried to load windows 7 pro. It cant find the hard drive. I can load ubuntu but when I try to load windows 7 it says no hard drive found.How do...

I have seen hard drives where people had screwed around the partitions so bad that their computer would recognize it. I would recommend since Ubuntu can see it. Boot into a Ubuntu Live CD and delete any partition info so that it's a completely empty disc. Then try to use the Windows 7 DVD to install Windows. Comment back with your results.

Acer aspire 5551-2036 will not power on. The battery light will come on but when I push the power button the laptop will not come on

The battery is either friend, or the hard drive is the one that's fried. Call or email acer, they have a great warranty on their products. They should be able to send you a new one, though you'll have to ship yours back.

As for your info, if it is your battery try taking you laptop into a battery shop and if replacing the battery works then back up your info.

If it's your hard drive, there's not much we can do, sorry.

I have seen this b4 but only with a hard drive that was formatted with a third party partioning software like "patition majic" U can try using that software to add the new layering and retry your Win7 cd for another go.

How to reboot my acer aspire 3690 to factory condition

On startup you will see a message on the acer splash screen to get into "SETUP". This will either be the DEL key or the F2 key.

Go into your BIOS and make sure that D2D recovery is enabled. If you do not see this D2D option then you can exit and should not have to adjust anything else.

when you restart the PC again, hold down the ALT and tap on the F10 key, this will start the recovery partition and load your system to factory default.

This option will only work if you still have your original hard drive in the PC and you have not reformated or reinstalled windows from another media souce.

My acer will not pick up the hard drive. It does

If the drive was visible before but is not showing up now, most likely you have had a hard drive crash and will need to replace the drive. You might try taking the drive out and reinstalling it on the outside possibility that you may have a loose connection but, based on the information posted, if the computer is not seeing the drive at all, it will more than likely need to be replaced.

Aspire 5600 hangs with battery inserted, without battery works fi

one of 2 things, youre battery might be no more good, i u left a dead battery lieing around for awhile they tend to lose there charge so maybe buy a new battery, but i suggest reformating ur computer using the hidden partion in the acer start screen, when u boot ur computer hold ctrl + f10 this should enable the acer e-recovery management to reset the computer back to factory defaults. Note that everything in ur drive c will be deleted so anything u want to keep should be moved to the drive D. if its not ctrl f10 then search acer e recovery and ull find the correct key combination to enable it

Reformating Laptop

Pierre jas:
What diffiulty you are facing in reformatting? You should just put the CD (the original OS CD which came with the laptop and restart the laptop). If you do not have the CD you an just simply put in any operating system CD in and restart the laptop and follow the steps. Make sure when it ask you to perform a quick formatting just select NTFS formatting. Note: I would suggest to back up all your important documents before you do that as everting will be gone once you reformat your hard drive. If your machine is shutting down before it let you save anything, on the command prompt simply put the command 'shutdown -a ' quickly save your work to an external hard drive and after that you can reinstall your OS(operating system).
Hope that helped!
