Under BIOS setting, set your hardrive to IDE instead of SATA, or use Win XP CD that contains Sata AHCI driver in order to recognize the hardrive.

I dont have the instillation cd


well without an installation cd you wont be able to install whatever it is??? unless you download it from the internet but if its an operating system and you dont have one to connect to the net you are in trouble or might try factory defaults if your operating system is giving problems

Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer) or During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart

hope this helps

My husbands ex wife bought my step son a used HP compaq d530 SFF desktop. She set an admin password on it and now she cant remember what it is. Is there anyway to restore it back to the factory settings...


If you are talking about problem with your password

You need to prepare:
1:A blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive
2.A computer which can link to internet
3.A program called Windows Password Recovery 6.0

Get started with this 3 simple steps:
Website: http://lost-password.net/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html
Step 1 - Download windows password recovery utility and install it.
Step 2 -Burn your Windows Password Reset CD:
To burn your CD, you'll need a blank CD-R and the .ISO file of Windows Password Reset.
Step 3 - Put in your newly created CD and remove your Windows password.
hope this helps

Hi i have a gateway mt6705, trying to restore to new. push the on button and gateway comes across the screen. then goes to a blank screen with a blinking line in top left corner thats it. cant use cd to...


Hi,
The way to restore Gateways is to hold down the ALT Key andrepeatedly hitting f10 then it should bring you to a boot sequence screen thenchoose the HDD and then hold down ALT and repeatedly hit f10 again that shouldprompt the restore feature for gateway. If that doesn't work,the only way to doit is to boot into windows and run the Recovery program.

ALL DATA WILL BE ERASEDON YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED. YOU WILL NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THEPOWER ADAPTER PLUGGED IN. DO NOT SWITCH OFF OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER DURINGTHIS PROCESS.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

The recovery disk consist of 2 DVD, the first is the System Disk (this is first disk to insert), once finished loading, it will ask to insert the second CD (Application and Drivers disk), if in case both are not working, then follow the below mentioned steps:

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

You can also place order for a set of Recovery disk by calling Acer Technical support at 1 800 816 2237

Hi there.

When you turn the laptop on, keep pressing Alt+F10. This should open the recovery program. Follow the on-screen instructions for factory settings.

Let me know if this does/doesn't work.

Acer Aspire 5920 alt f10 to use my recovery dsk mismatch d2d32


This a very common error. I too have suffered from this but after about 15 hours of fighting with it.. I fix it. I could not use the ALT + F10 keys as I would get the D2D32 Type Mismatch Error. So lucky me when I got my laptop from acer I made the recovery DVD's just in case. But to my suprise Booting from the DVD disk also would fail with the D2D32 Type Mismatch error. I even try maken new recovery disk with some luck. the new disk worked one time. But I started to run the recovery on disk one and when it asked for disk 2 I hit the power button thinking it would still boot, as I didnt want to wait for the recovery process to complete. So I ended up with a acer laptop with no o/s installed and was not able to use the Alt + F10 as explaned above or Boot using the recovery DVD's... so how did I fix this little set back... simple

I broke out the windows xp install Boot cd and Booted my system with that. let it run all the way to the partation/Format section on windows xp setup. I left the partation as it was and formatted it with the quick option. BE VERY CAREFUL AT THIS STEP... MAKE SURE YOU DONT FORMAT THE WRONG PARTATION THE 9 GIG OR 10 GIG IS WRONG. IT WAS DRIVE LETTER F: ON MY SYSTEM. JUST MAKE SURE IT IS DRIVE LETTER C: THAT YOU FORMAT...After it was done with the format I powerd down the system and tried to Boot from the Recovery DVD and it worked. No D2D32 Type Mismatch error. "{ But I let it finish this time around"} So to keep it simple. all you need to do is keep the partation the same, just format it and it your recovery will work. both ALT + F10 and /or the DVD"S Boot. it the ALT+F10 by chance dont work... theres a quick fix also. you need to files called MBRwrWin.exe and RTMBR2.bin and they have to be on the root of drive c:...{Root - just copy them to C: } and then from a command prompt with Adminastration {right click cmd } and type MBRwrWin install Rtmbr2.bin <Enter> ALT + F10 is now ready and fixed...


if you need help let me know or just to give some feed back
email me at cyberburn666@yahoo.com
Good luck it works. I just went from on os installed to vista... with factory recovery working like the day I got it....
