Hi, you will to boot from the dvd drive, but that has to be be the first bootable drive, which you will need to do from the bios, normally this is done by pressing F2 at switch on, once in the bios you can change the boot sequence to cdrom - hard drive - in that order.
save settings then reboot with windows recovery disc.
Let me know if you need more help.

Regards - Anthony

SOURCE: are the cds mandatory to perform recovery on the

The RECOVERY CD's are specifically for each and every computer and has the WINDOWS license number etc embedded in it and the hard drive and motherboard serial number as well. You can get it back to factory standard by using any original windows CD and using your Wiondows Key number on the sticker on your computer. Then you can afterwards download the hardware drivers, and all the software that originally came with the laptop, from the internet by going the the DELL.COM website and identifying your specific machine by typing in your computer's serial number. It would then (normally does) take you to a page wher you will find all the drivers and sofware needed.

SOURCE: i have no system recovery disc but i want to factory setting

Hi,

Providing the laptop was built after 2005 then there should be a recovery partition on the laptop.

Turn the laptop on and repeatedly press the F10 key, this should get you into the recovery partition and allow you to factory restore the laptop.


Regards.

Factory restore


1. Turn on or reboot your system. When the Fujitsu logo appears, press the [F12] key.

2. From the Boot Menu, that appears, check whether the <Recovery and Utility> option is present.
If it is not present, it means that the utility must be used from the disc.
Proceed to "Running Recovery and Utility from the Bootable Disc" , if <Recovery and Utility> is unavailable.

How to reset my computer to factory defalts like it was when i got it new?


Use a factory restore/recovery disc if one is provided when your computer is purchase new. Insert disc into cd-rom and change boot priority or if in startup there is a boot option, use cd/dvd rom as first boot priority and follow instruction. If one disk is not provided, with some (branded such as sony, hp, etc) a recovery/restore partition is created within the harddrive, if this is valid, when booting up the computer, there should be a F-key prompting setup or etc.... if there is press that F key and follow instruction. If partion drive is not created for recovery/resotore, then you must create one disc... You can create this disc when in the operating system, go to your start task and in "all program" see if there is any recovery tools or aplication, which is usually your brand application exm.... acer computer has "acer recovery" and use such program to create a restore disc, once disc is created, turn of computer and set your boot prefernce to cd/dvd and then insert your disc and restart your computer, a black screen will be followed and prompt you that it is booting from cd/dvd rom and follow instruction. If one disc or program is not provide, consult your computer brand and have them send a copy of your factory restore disc for a small fee at your own cost.

That option is the built in Windows restore, Not the system recovery that you need.
You should of been given either a windows disc or recovery/factory restore disc with your computer. OR it will have asked you to make a recovery disc when you first used your computer.

If you have none of these you will need to buy one. Recovery discs are about £15.
You may also wish to get a copy of windows to start from a fresh instalation

I have a loptop of Acer Aspire5520.I have to formate now but i lost my system backup & restore disk.How can i get this backup.Pls let me know.


Normally , acer laptops have a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive , which contains all of the recovery data so you dont need the recovery discs.

When you boot up your computer and you get the Acer logo etc , try pressing keys to start the recovery - this puts everything back to factory default settings and erases your data.

Also , A program ships with the laptop called 'Acer Empowering Technology - eRecovery' which allows you to burn your own recovery disc - You then use this disc to perform a complete system restore.
