Acer ERecovery Service is Not Available


What is the ERecovery Service?
On Acer Computers there is a floating toolbar on the desktop called the Acer Empowering Technology program. Within this program there is the ERecovery Service that allows a user to create backup operating system disks, create a backup of the current system, and more. This is a very handy feature because in many cases the computer does not come with a set of backup disks.

The icon for the ERecovery service looks like this one:

If you dont see this icon on the Empowering Technology bar then the application is not installed and will not be available.

How to Open ERecovery Service

There are three ways to access the ERecovery Service.

  1. Press ALT-F10 when the computer is first turned on. If you see the Windows XP or Vista splash screen you've waited too long and will have to shut the computer down and try it again.
  2. Find the ERecovery Service icon on the Acer floating toolbar and click it.
  3. Click on Start, All Programs, Acer Empowering Technology, and click on the icon for Acer ERecovery Management.
Downgrading from Vista to XP - "ERecovery Service is Not Available"

On many Acer models, the computer is preinstalled with Windows Vista, but it comes with a set of Windows XP Professional disks that allow you to uninstall Vista and reinstall Windows XP. Unfortunately, the hidden partition (PQService) that enables the ERecovery feature remains with a Windows Vista image. So, after the reinstallation of Windows XP, the Erecovery service is not available and you'll see a screen similar to the one below when you try to access it from within Windows.

You can still access the ERecovery Service using the Alt-F10 trick when the computer first starting booting, but you'll be disappointed to see the Windows Vista OS instead of Windows XP . Dont proceed with the ERecovery at this point unless you want to restore the system back to Vista.

Suggest download AND install the Audio driver, from the laptop manufacturer's support website.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device in question is the Audio chipset.
What version of Windows operating system that is used, has not been stated.

I need the laptop manufacturer name;
Acer
HP
Gateway
IBM/Lenovo
Jack in the Box
(NO,.........you gonna' believe that last one? lol!)

I also need the Model Number. This can be found on the Bottom of the laptop. (-> NOT S/N. That is the Serial Number)

I also need to know what Windows operating system you are using.
Windows 98
Windows Me
Windows XP
Windows Vista
Windows 7
Windows 8

Please post back in a Comment.

Then I can guide you step by step, in downloading AND installing the correct Audio driver.

Regards,
joecoolvette

(I will also guide you in reinstalling the Volume icon, back to your taskbar. The taskbar is at the bottom of the screen. Has the Time in it. The Volume icon is a small speaker icon. Round circle with smaller round circle in the middle )

How do i make the screen smaller


Make the resolution higher under the Display. Right Click on any open area on your desktop and select Properties. When the Display Properties window opens select the Settings tab. Change the resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and the more things will appear on the screen.

You can also get to the display by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. When the Display Properties window opens select the Settings tab. Change the resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and the more things will appear on the screen.

How do I fix the size of my icons and make the internet fit to size


How to resize Vista desktop icons

One of the complaints I hear about the Vista GUI is that "the icons are too big." Well, fixing that is a simple matter. Here's how:

Right click an empty space on the desktop.
Select View.
Click Classic Icons.

Another way is to use the scroll wheel on your mouse or trackball. With the cursor on the desktop, press and hold the CTRL key and scroll the wheel to make icons larger or smaller.


I hope someone having that problem will read this thread.
Cheers!

Cant seem to make the icons smaller on display packard bell easynote tj65


If you are using Vista/Windows 7 Right click anywhere on your display and you should get an option under view to change the size of your icons or you could change the display ratio/screen resolution which will automatically adjust icon size the higher the display setting the smaller the icon.
