Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire 3680, I had to do wipre my

I have an Acer Aspire 3680, I had to do wipe my hard drive clean and do a full recovery. I have the discs from Acer for my laptop. I performed the steps like the instructions said. Well for some reason its goes through all the necessary steps and then when my computer reboots, it says C drive needs to be checked for inconsisities and its fixes the problem. But when I reboot after that its says it caanot find the operating system to reinsert the system disc. Well that doesn't do anything. So I redo the recovery and now it takes like 5 hours to reformat the hard drive and once that finishes I insert the next disc like instructed but all it does is says its copying files and I don't see the light flashing where the disc is inserted. Can someone tell me what may be the problem of why its doing this. Also, I had to replace the hard drive like 6 mos ago. Don't know if that has anything to do with it but wanted to mention it. Any help would be appreciated...and if possible explain in detail becasue I'm not all the techinal savy...thanks all.

When i try the acer system recovery it keeps coming up with an error that says windows could not install and setup with resume when computer restarts..restarts ands same box pops up? cannot get past that...


Have you tried booting to the system recovery again and starting it over? Otherwise you may need to wipe it clean and start from scratch. Download a program like Darik's boot an dnuke to wipe the hard drive clean (this will destroy all data on the hard drive, including system recovery data if that is saved on the hard drive instead of CD's.) Then try the system recovery again (if it's on CD's)

  • prior to the recovery... have someone pull your hard drive and recover the "precious" files & pics on the drive... It's expensive at Best Buy... so watch out!!!
  • System recovery shouldn't have you loose all files.. if a recovery point is there... the trick is to only recover to the most recent point that you can. When Windows updates the software to Service Pack X for example, a recovery point would have been created automatically

Resetting my acer aspire 3680


It is best to wipe it clean and start over again.
By this I mean format your hard disk and install Windows again, and install an anti-virus suite with firewall.
Check your ACER recovery and driver disk etc.

Acer Aspire 3680 start up


This is generally caused by a hard drive failure. You can try to repair or reinstall the operating system with your recovery or operating system disc. If you have any issues or problems during or after the repair/reload then the hard rive has failed and will need to be replaced.

Acer Aspire 3680 Complete Restore


http://www.acerpanam.com/us Go to that website and click on "eRecovery Disc Purchase". Acer does not come with recovery discs. It only comes with a recovery partition from which you can make recovery discs. If they discs were not made you'll find the provided website useful. If you're trying to recover from your recovery partition, then continuously hit the F11 key at startup. This F11 option is not always displayed. If this doesn't work then your hard drive is corrupt or damaged and you will need the discs (and potentially a new hard drive).

Alt is defined in the software to jump to the ACER E Technology software suite. If you have wiped the hard drive clean without saving a backup of the application, you are out of luck. If you saved an applications backup, then re-install the Etechnology software suite.
