Can I purchase restore discs


Please visit the support website of your laptop manufacturer and check if the restore discs can be purchased. Most recent/new models are not shipped with restore discs. The user has to create the restore discs soon after powering up the system for the first time. If this runs into problems. then you may be able to get them discs online at the manufacturer's website or service center.

How do you restore the factory settings on the acer aspire 5532?


Well, first acer brand is cheap, and they don't give you a factory restore disc or a restore partition drive like most other laptop. However they give you the option to make a factory restore disc yourself, there is a program in the laptop ( browsing through your start task bar) should be a program such as acer recovery management, from there on use that program and make a retore disc. Once disc is created, you can go ahead and procced to restore your laptop in which you need to change your boot option to disc during startup of the laptop in order to boot from the recovery disc you just made.

I want to restore my factory settings


Do you have the restore discs? If not order them or go to Toshiba site and order them or download them if that is the option they provide for you. Also if you have the restore disc then just insert the restore disc and follow the on screen directions.
Make sure that the boot order is set to DVD or CD as the first boot and hard disk as the second boot this should be already set in the BIOS. Order the discs if you do not have them imperative. Thanks for using FixYa!
P.S. If you cannot get a restore disk from Toshiba I use this site for all restore discs. Note you have a PayPal account it is free to get at PayPal.com I use PayPal because I know it is a legit site. Click Here

My 0xc000000c "Restore Failed" prompt seemed to be the result of disk surface damage on the restore disk. After burning the restore disk to a new disk, the restore proceeded normally. Try making a copy of the original restore disk to a known good blank disk.

I understand that you want to download Restore discs to download.


I regret to inform you that the Restore Discs are not available to download. I am afraid that you need to contact HP to get the discs. They will provide you weblink to purchase the discs online.
