You will need to boot from the recovery disc to be able to access it. By default most computers are set to boot from the primary HDD this setting is what you will need to change. When the laptop first starts the first thing you see is the brand of the computer. Usually there will be options on the bottom of the screen one will be setup (F2) and boot menu (F12) sometimes this option is not there, or the F key to activate that menu is different now if your not afraid you can go into what is called the bios it is the most basic instruction for any pc. you access this by pressing F2 once you are in there you just need to find the option that says boot order. Make sure that CD-ROM is before HDD and you should be in business. So pretty much the main goal is to get the motherboard to boot from the cd drive before anything. IF you need further help let me know

How do i do a system rebuild on a acer travelmate 2410 series 2413NWMLi , the <alt> <f10> does not bring anything up


If your computer does not have a hidden partition for OS recovery, a recovery CD will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
Order the Recovery Media from Acer https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=acer
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
  3. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
  4. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
  6. The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
  7. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.

    Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.

  8. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: if your computer is unable to run the Acer Recovery process, or errors occur during recovery, please contact Acer support.

I have a vaio VGN-SR220J notebook. I tried to do a complete recovery with the recovery disc I made when I first purchased it in March 2009. However after the first disc, it told me to insert the second one...


Hi devil_ameet,

The issue may be with the Recovery Discs that you created. I would suggest that you try accessing the Recovery Partition in the Computer by pressing and holding the F10 Key while restarting the Computer. If you see a "Edit Boot Options" screen, please press the Enter Key. This would trigger the Computer to the VAIO Recovery Center which is present in the hidden partition of the Hard Drive. There, in the VAIO Recovery Center, please select the "Restore C: Drive" option to perform the Recovery.

If the Recovery Partition is not present in the Computer, the Recovery Discs are the only option to perform the Recovery. In that case, we can try resetting the BIOS to the default values, disconnecting the external Devices connected to the Computer and resetting the RAM Modules to troubleshoot the issue. Please let me know if you can access the Recovery Partition and perform the System Recovery.

Please let me know if you have any questions and require any further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My Medion MIM 2300 Notebook PC MD 96648 is


Your best bet is to hope it goes up in flames then you can claim off your insurance, the problem can't be fixed.
I have the same machine but with mine it got hot and the graphics processor has burnt out, it seems to be common with this model.
I can't even connect to an external monitor as everything to do with the VGA is fried and Medion support are useless.
I'll never buy a Medion again even though my previous two going back 8 years still work if somewhat slow.

Acer aspire not loading to windows


Hi,

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.

Thanks

Wireless


By holding down the function key and pressing the F1 button (the one with the triangle with a line drawn through it 'wifi symbol' ) it turns the wifi card on and you are able to refresh the network list and see the networks available to you.

Hey,

Do you have more of those recovery discs? are you sure you have the right one inserted?

I remember on my acer I first had to enter a system disc, then when asked the two recovery discs.

If your unable to get it working with those cds I would suggest you get your hands on a original windows xp or vista installation cd and install windows from it.

also have you tried to enter the boot menu on start up? when you power up it says on some corner of the screen what button to press to get it to open the boot menu and then select the cd/dvd rom drive.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse
