Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Startup Recovery thanks to the crashing problem as stated in another issue, sometimes the laptop would boot up with an option to use startup recovery, and was the recommended choice, and also an option to start windows normally. the problem is that anytime you pick the option to use start up recovery, it would go blank for a second as if to load, and then bring me back to the exact same menu. any ideas?

    i have a backup on the acer e_recovery thing. however its a little outdated but i can eaisly make a new one =)

    i also have the original Windows Vista CD, as it came with the laptop.

    however, will my acer tools ect. reinstall with windows? cause that is how i would recover everything once it was reinstalled, and although according to acer's ToS i can make one legal backup of acer empowering technology and the tools to go with, i have found no way to actually go about doing so.

To boot to the Rescue and Recovery Environment, Press F11 at startup or find a good password recovery program usually the recovery is cheaper way to go but you loose your data.

My Lenevo shows a screen that says a file is missing or corrupt and asks for startup disc to boot. I tried the one touch key recovery, but it was unsuccessful. Any ideas on how to get a startup recovery...


Hi sroger1,

If the OKR or One Key Recovey failed your option is to use a Recovery Disk of your Laptop you can request a Recovery Disk by calling Lenovo Hotline. It will be shipped to a US, Australia and New Zeland address. If you purchase your machine from a different country you need to ask the seller for a copy of the recovery disk.

Lenovo Tech Support Hotline: 1877-453-6686 or 1877-4LENOVO

Thanks for using Fixya.

Laptop won't starup (Black screen displayed) Help me please!!


Try this.

Turn the computer on and immediately press and hold the F8 key.

On the Advanced Boot Options menu, choose Repair Your Computer.

When you reach the System Recovery Options menu, choose Startup Repair. You already did that, but try it again.

If that doesn't do the work, go back to the System Recovery Options menu and do a System Restore.
You can use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) to troubleshoot and repair the following items in Windows Vista or Windows 7:
  • A master boot record (MBR)
  • A boot sector
  • A Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store
Note When you are troubleshooting startup issues by using the Windows RE, you should first try the Startup Repair option in the System Recovery Options dialog box. If the Startup Repair option does not resolve the issue, or if you must troubleshoot more steps manually, use the Bootrec.exe tool.

To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Put the Windows installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
  • Press a key when you are prompted.
  • Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
  • Click Repair your computer.
  • Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
  • Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.
Note To start the computer from the Windows DVD, the computer must be configured to start from the DVD drive. For more information about how to configure the computer to start from the DVD drive, see the documentation that is included with the computer or contact the computer manufacturer.

Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

F10 at startup


Yes for windows recovery and startup options press "F8" repeatedly during boot to provide you with other options.

On most laptops F10 is usually to either change the actual boot option (cd, floppy, hard drive, etc.) or to enter a system wide recovery process that would restore the laptop to its original condition and also wipe any information you may have on it.

Trouble booting!


You could attempt to boot to safe mode, and run the Start> System Recovery > PC Recovery Application.

Otherwise, I'd boot to safe mode, select start, run, type: msconfig, select the startup tab, remove any unwanted startup items that may be causing the system crash.

Hope this helps.
