SOURCE: I need to restore to factory settings

Assuming that you havent deleted the recovery partition...

In the Bios is a setting that enables or disbles D2D (Disk2Disk)
Make sure that is enabled then try Alt+F10 again

If the partition is deleted then u can use a partition recovery program (IE Partition magic, active partition recovery, Etc) to try and restore it (save all your data before using any recovery programs)

Let me know...

Having with my dell inspiron window 7 laptop(hard drive/corrupt registry) how do I restore it too factory setting?

If you have tried every system restore point, that is when you open system restore you checked show more points, and have tried all of them, then you must reinstall the OS.

If you don't have a windows disk, you can download win 7, it is legal to download and use for 30 day's, but then you are suppose to register it.

If you download it, you should check the hash number, but it's not a second deal, you would need to read about how to do this.

I will post a link for win 7 downloads, for the most part I can say these are not touched, they are ok.

These are ISO files, so you need a software like free ISO burner, this will open and burn the file to a DVD disk, now you have a win 7 install disk.

You can also use the win 7 disk to repair windows, so if you do burn it, try repairing windows with it first.

Here is a link if you need to see how to install win 7, with pictures.

Here is where you can get win 7, pick the version you have now because the serial key only works for that version you have now.

My Acer laptop will not boot up.

You may have a corrupted video driver due to an update. For some Acers, press and hold F10 when starting the computer. Two beeps will mean that the bios settings have been restored and the machine may boot correctly. If you can enter the BIOS via F2, F1, F10, ESC or DEL, then find the area for display and change it to low resolution then save and restart your computer. Once running, you will need to uninstall the current video driver and have the computer install a new one.

Will acer extensa 5230E reinstallation cds contain windows

A driver restore disk works with a windows disk to return your Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 back to the original factory setup.

Once windows has installed you put this disk into the drive as soon as windows gives you a found new hardware dialog box. Once inserted the Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 will automatically find all the drivers and also install most of the original factory software. BEWARE OF GENERIC DISKS ! All Drivers and factory software are operating system specific so you must have the correct software and drivers for your Acer Extensa 5230EWindows 7. Some of the drivers you would find on this Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 Restore Disk are listed below. Not all will be applicable to your system as this list is for information only for Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 Restore Disk.


Hope this helps

I have an acer aspire one net book. It keeps saying windows could not start \windows\system32\1-intl.nls


Either you have an operating system problem or memory issue.

First, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly when powering on). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date. Follow the process.

If still a problem, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the battery and the memory cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

It's also possible that your Master Boot Record is corrupted. To fix:

1. When prompted, boot from the CD drive by pressing any key. If Windows loads automatically, you will first have to enter the BIOS setup and change the order of the boot devices to start with the CD drive.
2. Once the setup loads, you will see the option to press R to repair a Windows installation.
3. Once the Recovery Console loads up, you will have to type in a number that corresponds to your Windows installation. This is normally just 1. Press Enter and then type in the Administrator password (no password, just hit Enter, unless you changed the password).
4. Now at the prompt, type in fixmbr. Your damaged MBR will now be replaced with a new master boot record and your computer should now be able to boot properly. Also run the fixboot command to repair the boot sector with a new one.

If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to restore my Acer Aspire One D255E to Factory Defaults but the restore is stalling at "Installing Cleanup" phase, it has been on this phase for over 8 hours. What should I do?

First of all, the other people apparently don't read before they post.
The Acer Aspire D255E has NO CD ROM, thus no restore disks, etc.
There is a factory restore option, but I'm having the same problem, the restore option simply does not work. These crappy computers keep a spare partition hidden on the hard drive, which contains all the data needed for the factory restore. However, if something happens to this partition or this data (say it's accidentally formatted), then the factory restore will fail, having lost the backup.

I've tried using Win XP on a flash drive using WinToFlash to copy the windows cd to a flash drive and make it bootable. However, I think my win xp version is a win98 upgrade, and so my next step is to make a bootable win98 flash drive. I'm about to try that and hope for the best.

If you've got windows 7 (which the Aspire One normally comes with),
then you should have much less trouble getting this step to work.

As a side note, if you have a BIOS password you need to break, do the following:

1. Unplug the AC cord and the battery.
2. Hold down FUNC and ESC and don't let up.
3. Plug in a flash drive containing the Acer One BIOS
(which you should find easily on the web).
4. Plug in the AC cord (still holding down those 2 keys)
5. Turn on the power, and wait. The flash drive may light up for a moment, and the laptop may seem to be doing nothing, but it is!
Keep holding down FUNC and ESC, maybe 2 minutes, then the Aspire One will power itself off. At this point, the BIOS is reinstalled, and the password is gone.

Hello, i have a acer aspire 6920g and it doesn't start up it does come up with stuff but it says, Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt :...

As soon as you power up your laptop, keep tapping F8 until another screen pops up. Select reinstall windows / restore factory settings (Should be an option to reset your computer back to factory settings)
Any data on your computer will be lost during this process.....
This will reinstall the windows you already have on your hard drive and will not require a disk.

Hope this helps and please rate, thanks

My acer is not getting past a start screen, its loads an error on a black screen, saying it cannot locate the operating system. It will allow me to go to set up but I'm not sure what I'm doing?

This error comes out when the pc cannot find the hard disk.
Does the bios detect it? What is the exact error?
If the error you get is NTLDR missing you should install again the operating system (i.e. Windows)
If the error you get is no bootable device can be an hardware problem. Please check the connection of your hard disk. If connection is good you may want to remove the hard disk and buy a new one. The old hard disk you can put into a usb drive and copy your personal data so you can have it back.
If with the new hard disk you are not successful it could be a motherboard problem and you should take it to assistance

Pioneer DVD-RWDVRKD08RS problem on windows 7 hi i have a acer aspire 7520 but he cant find my dvd

if you are talking about the dvd writer from the is possible that you didnt got the right driver ..or you disabled it by mistake ...try to get into bios and enable it if you locate it there ,,,if not just remove the bios battery get it to factory defaults...this can be done from Bios too ...but Im not sure if it will restore the disabled drives when you access the feature for optimal defaults into Bios...try anyway and let me know what you've done ...
there is the possibility that its broke ...but its a long shoot ..cause they usually do not die suddenly ..but loose a function at the time ...I know that ya at least use d it to install windows 7 cause this one can not be installed but from the disk something is wrong and the thing is that is disabled for sure ...
reinstalling from scratch will fix this too ...cause in all windows there are drivers fo dvd drives...

You need to have your motherboard resetted. There is a jumper on the board that say reset. Move the jumper to that and turn it on for a few seconds. Then turn off and put the jumper back to the original spot.

Acer e Recovery Error code: 0xC0000003Open image failed. Found

The image stored on your laptop to restore it to factory original is corrupted. If the laptop still boots, try to make restore media using the acer erecovery management console, although this will likely not work if the image is corrupt. Try installing windows with these discs if you can. If not you have 2 options:
  1. Contact acer and order restore discs (free if in warranty) or about $50 out of warranty.
  2. Reinstall windows using an OEM Windows cd and the keycode on the windows sticker on the bottom of the laptop. You will have to download all hardware drivers manually though, and you will not have any of the softawre provided by acer. The restore discs from acer are by far the best option....Let me know if this helps.
