Try to run again the system restore cd, what OS you are using? is it old or new acer laptop?
if you have new laptop with Vista OS it should be ok.
if you have new laptop design for vista but rather installed XP maybe you will encounter difficulties loading drivers if you dont have xp driver cd (acer provided)
if you have old laptop with XP OS it should be ok.
if you have old laptop w/ lower memory and trying to install Vista it will not work or you will incounter difficulties

System recovery boot


The Acer Aspire line of netbooks have two methods to restore the computer to a working state: System Restore, an application included with Windows, or Acer eRecovery Management, a proprietary application that is packaged with Acer PCs.

If errors appear when running Windows, or if the computer begins to behave strangely, first run System Restore to determine whether reverting the PC to a previous state fixes the problem.
If the problem remains unresolved, or worsens, you can use Acer eRecovery Management to format the hard drive and reload the Acer Aspire netbook to its factory state.

Navigate to the "Start" menu. Select the "Control Panel."
Type "restore" into the Search box.
Press "Enter" then select "Restore Your Computer to an Earlier Time" from below the "Action Center."
Click "Open System Restore."
Click "Next" on the "Restore System Files and Settings" screen.


Select a restore point that was created when the computer was functioning properly. Click "Next," then click "Finish."
Click "Yes" to confirm.
Windows will perform a system recovery on the Acer Aspire One.

Acer eRecovery Management

Turn on the Acer netbook. Hold down the "Alt" and "F10" buttons simultaneously on the boot screen to load Acer eRecovery Management from the recovery partition.


Select "Restore Operating System to Factory Defaults" from the options.


Click "Next" to recover the system to its original state.

Msvcrt.dll error message(Msvcrt.dll error message("the procedure entry except handler4 common could not be located dinamic link library msvcrt.dll")


Two possible solutions.
Roll back system with System Restore. Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Need to carry out a disaster recovery on Acer laptop but not very technical.


If your computer came with a system restore disk, put it in and follow the instructions. some Acer laptps have a hidden drive that restores it. Press ALT and F10, if it loads up forllow those instructions. Order one from https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=acer
just put in you serial numbers from your computer and it will guide you to buying the CD.

It is not hard as it may sound, they all guide you.

Acer Aspire 3680 will not detect hard disk. In command prompt where should be, there is


Hi there,from the sounds of it this lovely little excercise is due to the hard drive failure,either that or no OS - XP disk is dead or damaged.
If you have the original restore disks from the 3680.
You could try reinstall and test from there,If your contents were important then try to remove hdd take to another computer and see if the drive recognises on the other machine,
If it allows access ,copy all your settings and documents straight away because it could die shortly,hopefully not tho....
Once the back up of your docs and settings and hdd back in your computer then use the restore disk to revive your machine,
This process wipes the C Drive and does a complete reinstall of all the required softwares and in the correct order too...
It should take 15-20 min to load onto the machine and about 40 minutes to reinstall all the RESTORE to Factory Defaults Settings.
Just let it do this process from start to finish and it should eject disk when done and reboot by itself.
when it starts up again it will be back to the windows activation screen and the ready to start loading up if your have the original restore disc,
Once your happy with it and its working,

CREATE A RESTORE POINT

How do I create a restore point?
START>ALL PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE<Select NAME this as

"FRESH INSTALL JAN 2009"

This will help you return to the point when everything was working,
If you should'nt encounter any more problems,

There may be a Hidden Partion on your hard drive that may allow you to restore from that.Then all thats needed doing is the bios settings will need to be changed to select the XP CD on bootup or the hidden partion on bootup then select save and reboot,It should be straight forward from there.

Just about finished,

Dont for get to do your windows updates for SP2 and then turn off the update functions.

And BACK UP the new install to DVD blank so you can restore
any other time you have issues

I hope this helps but that should cover itn for you,
If you need more help please let me know.

Thanks Misterdj

HP Desktop keeps rebooting itself


Hi Julie, the boot order is not correct. You need to change the order to boot to you're cdrom first than to you're hard disk drive.
To change that order go to the boot section of you're bios. Move to select you're cdrom & press enter on the keyboard & a list will open. You cam move devices up & down by pressing the + or - keys. Once you have corrected the boot order save & exit.
As the pc begins to start back up, press the F8 key every 2 seconds. A window will open, look for ( Disable automatic restart on system failure ). Choose the option. Windows should continue to load windows. If you see any error messages write them down & post them here.
If windows does not load continue following as mentioned below.
Check if the PC continues to reboot itself. If it continues to do so than you're windows boot files may be corrupted or worse. Load you're restore cd or you're windows cd into you're cdrom drive & restart you're PC. You should see. to load the cd press any key... (Press the space bar). You're cd will start to load. If you're using windows or the restore cd follow the on screen instruction to reinstall windows (ONLY). Doing a reinstall will not earse you're personall data. Do not format you're drive, (Yet). Finish installing windows. The PC will restart once or twice & you will see ( to load from CD press any key... ) Do nothing, windows will continue installing. When finished run windows update till there are no more updated. Some programs will need to be reinstalled, like printer software.

Post back if you need more help or have questions.
Good Luck Julie!
Mike
