Question about Acer Ferrari 3200 Notebook
I have an Acer Aspire 1640z Laptop and need to format it. The shop I bought the laptop from said that it doesn't come with a recovery CD or a Windows CD. They said that newer computers these days have the recovery and backup info already on the seconds backup harddrive. Anyway, I've had too many problems (viruses, trojans, worms) even with the latest and strictest security settings in place and need to format my drive. But I don't know how to do this as I am only used to formatting drives when I have a Windows CD at hand.
How do I format my drive and get Windows XP to reload from the backup drive onto the normal drive upon completing the format? Any quick help would be greatly appreciated. :)
Unless the hidden partitian has been written over or it has been corrupt...
Hit Alt-F10 as soon as you see the Acer logo when booting. If the recovery partitian does not display...then you must purchase an operating system and do it the old fashion way.
Good luck to you my friend.

The partition on the hard disk might have been currupted and if u wanted to format and the system does not allow it then u have to slot any os u have in the cd rom so that u can boot 4rm it when u have restarted the system then the system will ask u to press any key in order to boot 4rm cd rom.after u have press a key to boot 4rm cd rom then follow the instructions on the blue screen to repair.u press r to repair the current windows then if that does not solve the problem then remove all cmos battery on the board,then power the system to erase the bios settings after that u can fix back the battery,then restart the system then u can slot ur os and begin ur instalation.
