My erecovery management (PQservices) partition was destroyed by virus - can not get arepacement

The options are Acer Factory disk.Usually can be had, for a price ($20.00 or so) with your SN on your computer from ACER support. If you have "totaly wiped the drive" the software is gone. It will not restore/recover with the HDD "wiped". If you have a different OS it should load. A free OS can be found here: Or take a look at this, you have to purchase a product key : OR

How do i reboot my acer aspire 5732zg?

Turn on your PC and wait for the "Acer Splash Screen" to appear.

This is the screen that has the Acer logo and is one of the first screens you will see.

Press the "Alt" key and "F10" keys at the same time when you see the splash screen until you are brought to the "Windows eRecovery Options Screen."

Choose the Windows Installation option from the main screen.

You will be prompted so you are aware that all information currently on your drive will be lost.

Choose which Windows Operating system you want to overwrite.

Typically you will only have one Operating System and you can simply press the "1" key.

If you have, for instance, Linux as your first OS and Windows as your second OS, you will need to press the number that corresponds to the OS you are replacing.

Choose to partition your C:/ drive or whichever drive your Windows OS is installed on.

This will completely reformat your drive and install a fresh copy of Windows.

Allow the process to run and your drive will format, and then Windows will reinstall to your computer.

Request a recovery CD from Acer if the Alt + F10 option does not work.

You can find Acer Support Located using this link.

You will then follow the exact same steps as listed above after booting the computer with the CD in the drive.

Hope this helps.

I own a acer aspire 5715z and im wondering how i can restore it to its original settings like when i got it? if you could help i really owe u

I believe the ACER aspires have a hidden back-up/ recovery
partition on the hard drive for just this purpose, and that there
is a magic button or key sequence during the boot up process
to activate this sequence.

This should be listed in your user manual, or the official tech
support center (telephone support) should be able to guide you
through this

The process will reformat the hard drive and re-install windows
and the original device drivers.

You will loose all Windows and device driver updates,
all user accounts, internet and desktop settings etc...
You may also loose all your user files, so back up

Downloaded and installed software licenses will
all be lost as well.
