My acer eRecovery is missing


When a person buys a computer, and turns it on for the first time, you are repeatedly asked if you wish to make a Backup.

This is your Restoration (Recovery) disk

Did you make one?

No?

Then either contact Acer for the disk, or buy a fresh, new genuine copy of Windows, and install it.

When asked choose Repair. Non-Destructive Installation.

[Microsoft makes one Master disk. From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer]

Or see if a nearby computer repair shop can repair the basic Windows files.

[NO, I do not agree that the Recovery files are on the harddrive, and not a separate disk.
The reason however, that this method was brought into play, was because of users.

1) Lost the recovery disk.
2) Afraid to use the recovery disk, so they just take it down to a computer shop anyway.

Hmmm, I'm a pre-built computer manufacturer......................

Say the disk costs around 50 cents USD.
If I take that times 100,000 computers, I save $50,000 dollars.

Users don't use them anyway, I can save $50,000 dollars.........hey, whats the problem?
I'll just put it on the harddrive, and tell them to make a Backup disk.

NOW people aren't even making a Backup disk! Sheesh!

How to reset your lost windows XP/NT/ 7 password


The World Cup is coming and you attemp to log in to your Windows xp,and realize you can’t remember the password?It is very annoying. What should you do when you lost windows password to login to Windows system?

It is easy to gain access to windows after losing your user account password.Just simply login as the computer administrator, and go to control panel->user accounts. There you will be able to reset the password for any of the systems user accounts.

Things get more tricky if you have lost administrator password, It's a sickening,powerless feeling to be locked out of your own computer though this happens more often,everytime we feel so helpless.What should you do in facing this situation.You have tried everything you could but failed.

In reality,There are a couple of ways you can gain access to your windows Adminitrator account.

Method 1: Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten password by using ""Reset Disk"". If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset windows password.

Method 2: Use a password Reset Disk
To use the password Reset Disk to log on to the computer,you can follow these steps/ If your computer is current or former member of the domain, go to "domain Windows XP Professional" section and follow the steps.

Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional Restart the computer.In the Windows XP logon screen, click the user name you want to use, and then press Enter.Note: You will receive the following error message:“Did you forget your password? You can click the "?" Button to see your password hint.Or you can use your password reset disk. Please type your password again. Be sure to use the correct uppercase and lowercase letters.”
Click "Use a password reset disk." "Password Reset Wizard" starts. Through the "Password Reset Wizard", you can create your user account a new password.

In the "Password Reset Wizard" dialog box, click "Next."The password reset disk into the CD drive, then click "Next."
In the "Type a new password" box, type a new password, and then "re-type the password to confirm" box, type the password again.In the "Type a new password hint" box, type the password prompt, and then click "Next."Click the "Finish", then try to log on to Windows XP.

If you can reset your password, and now can successfully log on, you have to solve this problem, and completed all operations. If you still can not log in, please try Method 3.

Method 3:
There are a lot of tools and utilities that can be downloaded and used to recover, reset, retrieve or reveal windows password. However, I've tried a couple of these utilities through the years and my favorite is the windows password key 8.0. This utility is used to reset password of any windows versions.
1. Login to a computer that can link to Internet. Download windows Password key and install it on that PC. Note that: there is a .ISO file. Burn the .ISO file to a CD or a USB flash drive.
2. Insert the newly created CD/USB to the locked computer.
3. Reboot the locked computer and press'F2'or'Delete'to enter your BIOS setup and then you will see the instruction
Now you can regain access your Windows operating system and create a new administrator password. The best thing of using this method is that you shouldn't lose any data on your computer. Furthermore, If you can't find a computer which has a CD/DVD writer or the locked computer have no a CD-ROM, You can burn the ISO image file into a USB flash drive and use the USB flash drive to recover your Windows administrator password.

Try these three methods the next time you have lost Windows administrator password, which you do not need to reinstall Windows system for getting back to Windows by removing lost or forgotten password.

Windows vista recovery cd I created won't install on new hard drive


Which software did you use to create the recovery disk? Is the recovery disk a CD or DVD?

Just to recover a vista system from recovery DVDs would require at least two DVDs. Your files would be in addition to this so I would be very surprised if you have only a single disk containing both the operating system and all of your files.

A simple recovery disk would only be useful for restoring lost operating system files to a hard disk that had corrupted or deleted files. It would let you restore to a new blank disk.

If the disk only contains a backup of your data then you would need to first install an operating system (Vista or Windows 7) and then install the backup software you used to create the disk and then you could recover your data from the disk.

Reformat my computer to windows 7


ATTENTION!
Reformatting a computer will reset it to the factor image, all data must be backed up or it WILL be lost. There are several reasons to reformat a hard drive. A few reasons include but are not limited to: driver issues, virus, cleaning up, getting rid of the computer, etc.

RECOVERY DISKS!
Every new windows 7 owner should know that the new computers are not supplied with recovery disks anymore. The manufacturer allows the user to create one set of disks upon the purchase of a new machine. It is important to create the disks early as driver issues and viruses may arise. In order to create recovery disks on windows 7 you want to click on the start menu. Next, type in recovery in the Start Search option area. Next, click on recovery disk creation and follow the process. It will require that you have about 3 dvds or about 7 cds to create the recovery disk.

REFORMATING HARD DRIVE!
Once the recovery disks have been made reformatting windows 7 is quite simple. Insert the recovery disks into the cd/dvd tray on the machine. You are now going to want to turn the computer off. When the computer has turned off, go ahead and turn it back on. A screen should pop up asking you whether you want to boot from Hard Drive or Disk. Choose the disk option. After you make it this far it is a downhill process. Next you follow the on-screen instruction make sure you reformat the machine, not recover it.
