please insert the recovery disk that you got with your Aspire T135,Please restart your PC and press F12 when it restarts and boot from the CD drive.you will get the option in the disk to reset to factory setting.
when it asks for this put in the disc you first put in to do recovery ......
when doing recovery it will ask to put in the first recovery cd and when its about 60% it will ask you to put in second recovery disc and just before finish it will ask you to put in that cd which is the first recovery disc again...ive done it and it worked so it should work for you ....best of luck hope this helps
First of all you must recover your files: download and burn a Linux Live-CD, boot from it and move your files to an USB stick. All older Acer's have a hidden recovery partition. Check in the BIOS (F2 to boot on my Acer): that Acer Disk to Disk Recovery is activated in the Main panel, which D2D Recovery is well on Enabled. To access it press ALT + F10 once the Acer logo is displayed. If you don't have one borrow from a friend a retail XP disk and do a Repair or Inplace Upgrade install.
If you have recovery disc or back up disc put it in and restart the PC and start tapping the F12 key until at the Acer splash screen, you should get now see your boot order, now use your up and down cursor key to highlight the CD/DVD drive and then press enter, this will now start the recovery disc that you put in, just follow the on-screen instructions.
If you don't have a disc, restart the PC and at the Acer splash screen start tapping the ALT+F10 or just F10 and if you have a recovery partition on your hardrive then the recovery program will start up, just follow the on-screen instructions.
I'm located in New Zealand and purchased a motherboard for my T135 from www.trademe.co.nz. Possibly www.ebay.com and other trading sites could be helpfull.
If its any help the motherboard I purchased was a Winfast core series 760GXK8MC-RS. That supports an AMD Socket 754 cpu.
It seems to have done the trick but by the looks of it after replacing the motherboard I will have to install a new operating system as the orignal Windows XP was an OEM version (which means that it was pre-installed on the hard drive) and the recovery discs won't work with the new motherboard installed.
