Most companies these days put all the programs and backups onto a separate partition of your hard drive to cut costs. You still have the software and the company usually provides a way to burn the backups to disc, but you don't get one with your computer. I believe you can also contact Acer and request a disk, but most software you get, will be trial software, so it won't really matter in the first place.

How to recover Acer Windows password?


Recover windows password, why don't remove the password with Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0.

If you can not remember the windows admin password, try to reset it with a reset disk. Free download windows password Recovery from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com and there is a .iso file included. Burn the .ISO file onto a blank CD which is so-called windows password Recovery disk. With this disk, you can reset windows password without erasing anything

Where can i get a copy of the operating system for an acer aspire 4720z vista


Its normally stored on the hard drive of the PC in the recover partition of the hard disk drive.

If you've formatted the hard drive without burning a recovery disk, you can try contacting ACER via their web site and ask for assistance. You could buy a copy of Window Vista. But if you decided you need to buy a new operating system buy Windows 7 instead, its much better than Vista.

If however you don't want to buy an operating system and be legal. Then you can download and install one of the Linux based operating systems for free. I like Ubuntu best, but there are others.

Just google Linux or go straight for Ubuntu :- http://www.ubuntu.com/

Remove windows from acer aspire 5100


I think you have dual Os on it i.e Win XP & Win Vista. So, I am sorry to say that you can not access the full factory restore from the recovery partion. At this point, I would suggest you to contact the Acer Technical Supprt and order for RCD (Recovery Disk) inorder to wipe everything from the computer or you can use a Disk Manager utility to wipe everything from the computer.You can visit the below link to download the software

Upgrading to Windows 7 from Vista with disks supplied by ACER


Try downloading CCleaner, which is free utility that will clean out all your temp files and also scan your registry for issues.

When a program is uninstalled, such as Kaspersky anti-virus, not all registry components are cleared out.

This is particularly the case if the program was a 30 day trial.

The registry retains details of the original installation to prevent consecutive 30 day trials.

CCleaner should clean it out. Run the Registry Issues component until it reports no issues found and then try your install again.

I have the cosmi 20,000 recipies perogram in my old computer and the hard drive went out. I got a new Acer with Windows 7 and cannot get the old disk to load. The former computer was running Windows XP...


i think u are probably out of luck. this software looks like it came from the late 90s and will work with anything up to xp, but vista & win7 are a whole different ballgame. best solution, buy an old laptop with win98 or 2000 or xp super cheap on ebay, or beg one from a friend, and use ur software on it there in the kitchen. that's what i do with my old laptop. works great if u have room in the kitchen lol

also transfer ur fave recipes from 20,000 recipes to a recipe organizer program like mastercook, it's much much better for searching plus u can enter 1000s of new recipes from anywhere. u can get older versions of mastercook for $5 on ebay. version 8 works just great for me with winxp. (WARNING if ur interested in mastercook on ur NEW computer, get version 11, the older ones DON'T work w/Vista or win7.)

Need a restore disk for acer laptopex4420


Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem


Windows 7 and Vista has a feature called System Restore that automatically backs up registry and system files whenever you install new software or drivers. This feature is useful when you install evil software that makes your computer run really slow. But don’t worry, System Restore won’t remove Windows Vista.

Using System Restore in Windows

There are two places that you can use the system restore feature from. From within Windows, you can just type restore into the Start menu search box, and you’ll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu:
now just follow it all

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Keyboard stops responding after a powersave on laptop ACER 5715Z


The issue is that several of the Acer software products don't support Vista. You need to remove these programs.

Follow the instructions in this link
http://global.acer.com/support/winvista/t-faq.htm

Due to architectural changes to Windows Vista®,some Acer applications are not supported anymore. Below is a summary ofthese applications. Uninstall these applications before the upgrade.

Acer eRecovery Management The new version of Acer eRecovery Management, which is compatible with Windows Vista®,requires repartitioning your hard disk drive, causing data loss. As aresult, the Wizard will not reinstall the new version of eRecovery onyour computer under Windows Vista®. However, you will be able to find similar features in the built-in Backup Utility of Windows Vista®, including full system volume backup to a HDD or CD/DVD. Acer eAcoustics Management Windows Vista® supports similar functions of eAcoustics so Acer will no longer provide this utility for Windows Vista®. Acer ePresentation Management You can easily manage your external monitor settings via Windows Vista® Mobility Center. As a result, we do not support an upgrade to Acer ePresentation Management. Acer ePower Management Due to architectural changes to Windows Vista®,Acer ePower Management cannot be upgraded for some models. However, youcan easily manage your power settings via Windows Vista® Mobility Center instead. Acer ePerformance Management For notebooks only. Since Windows Vista® provides similar resource management functionalities, we will no longer provide this for notebook models with Windows Vista®. Acer Arcade™ Deluxe 3.x
Acer eNet Management 1.x
Acer eDataSecurity Management 1.x Due to architectural changes to Windows Vista®, these applications cannot be upgraded.

Alternately (not recommended) you can change your settings with the following method. I would recommend removing all the Acer software though as keeping them might cause problems.

Check under Advanced Power Options-> Multimedia Setting -> When Sharing Media. By default onBattery and Plugged is set to "Allow the computer to enter AwayMode" Changing this setting to "Allow Computer to sleep" should solve theproblem. On Battery the Away Mode "does" allow the computer to sleepproperly.

Wanting to upgrade old Mastercook program to meld to new computer


ValuSoft says that MasterCook 9.0 is only supported in Windows 98-XP. Specifically not Vista compatible. What's wrong with these people? I have Vista and didn't realize until tonight that some of MasterCook doesn't work right. So, buy XP.

Windows Vista Upgrade?


This may be because the vista you have has not been registered or it is an upgrade from xp.

Vista doesn't have an upgrade yet, you can upgrade from xp, but not from vista. So this problem is wierd. Get in touch with Best Buy and let them solve the problem.

Downloading Problem


I have always advised folk to leave the software disk in the box when connecting cameras and the like to a NTFS system. Plug it into USB port and Windoze will find it. Should be the same with Vista I guess Leave the disk in the box- or of you have installed stuff uninstall it. And let Windoze do the work.
