I doubt you lost all your data. You may have damaged a few boot-time files - that could prevent a boot - but if you're unable to boot from your recovery disk (assuming it's not scratched, etc. and that you've done so before - then I'd say there is some other problem going on.

It may be related to the power supply or other hardware in the computer. You should pay attention to the POST (power on self test) beep code and then compare it with what your manufacturer says they mean. This should be your first step. Make sure you're getting a good POST, then go from there. You might have to remove as many expansion cards as you can to determine if a fault lies with one other them. Reinstall one at a time to narrow down the faulty board. You should also take this opportunity to vacuum dust and dirt from te case and ventilation slots. Resist the temptation to blow it out - as that only forces dust and dirt deeper still into components. Make sure all fans spin freely and rotate when powered up - don't forget the one inside the power supply. There are other things to do too - these are just for starters. Hopefully, you won't have to go further than this.

Good luck!

I was restoring from the Acer recovery disk that I created when my process crashed before it completed. Now it won't boot up at all...HELP!


Your best bet is to reinstall the operating system. I couldn't count the number of times that the Recovery Discs created by users fail, it's very common. The only recovery that works a high percentage of the time is when the manufacturer puts a recovery partition on your hard drive.

You can try your Recovery Disc again, but if it produces the same results, just reinstall your operating system fresh. It shouldn't matter because either way you will lose your data.

Tip

How Do I Correct the Error and Recover an Acer Computer hard drive?


In order to correct the hard drive partitions so the recovery program will work, you can use a variety of tools listed below.

1) Active@ KillDisk - Use their free killdisk program to wipe the hard drive clean off all partitions.

2) Ubuntu or another Linux alternative bootdisk. Create a boot disk for the Ubuntu Live CD and boot the computer from it. During the boot process it will ask to "Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer". This is the option you want. Once Ubuntu loads, find the partition editor program under the System, Administration menu..

To delete a partition, right click on the partition that you wish to delete and select "Delete" from the menu. Once you are sure that you've selected the correct partition, and are positive that you have backed up all the files or data that you wish to save from that partition, click the "Apply" button at the top of the Window, and the partition will be deleted.

3) Use the Acer Hard Drive Format Utility, on some versions of Acer computers when you have the option to create Recovery disks, the system creates a hard drive format utility CD as well. Boot from this CD and format the hard drive.
The utility will recreate 1 partition (C: drive), after the partition has been created, you'll be able to reload the HDD with the backup media. The file is an ISO image for CD media only (not compatible with floppy diskettes). Create a CD disc from the ISO image file using a CD writer program on another computer.

Once the hard drive partitions have been deleted by any of the utilities above, you can proceed with rebooting the computer using the Acer System CD and proceeding with the complete recovery of the system.

Hi, I have a Toshiba 80GB MK8037GSX 2.5" SATA in


1) have checked bios cannot see hdd mounted.

That is BAD -- the disk-drive could have "died".



2) tried a seagate hdd works fine so connections in laptop seem to be working

That shows that your motherboard is GOOD, but that your disk-drive is BAD.



3) can hear hardrive trying to do something as can hear harddrive usual noise, continous noise for about 5 sec before getting the error message

That is BAD -- the disk-drive is "dying".



4) no rattling or crackling noise from drive apart from the above

That is BAD -- none of the files can be read from your disk.




i have created a ubuntu boot up disk which allows me to access laptop but does shows error when locating hdd,

That is BAD.




once in ubuntu i can access internet but it does not show the windows partition of the harddrive, only shows ubuntu as opearing system, confused.

That is BAD. Only the CD/DVD disk has been mounted -- Ubuntu could not mount the disk-drive.




In regards to ubuntu working does this mean the hdd is ok?

No, it means that your motherboard is working.






and is there anyhting i can try via ubuntu to locate the files?

No. The disk-drive is "dead".




There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

Laptop won't boot. No splash screen. Crash


Take out any USB device from the PC when rebooting: some BIOSes will incorrectly try to boot off them.

If that doesn't work, enter the BIOS Setup (F2 or Del key at boot) and find the Boot Devices menu, confirm that the highest-priority one is "Internal HDD" (or the name of your internal hard disk).

Wireless router not working.


Power cycle the modem/router, which ever it is, or both.

Unplug the power, let it sit for about 30 seconds, plug it back in and wait til all the light stop flashing. Internet light may flicker with activity.

Tried rebooting from the disks, but...


I had this problem with my Acer Aspire 5920. What I had to do was use GPLCD which is a linux utilty to format the disk as NTFS. It is available here. http://gparted-livecd.tuxfamily.org/

For me it was easy as I have another computer here. I downloaded the iso file and created a CD which is bootable.

I put it in the drive for the laptop when the computer was on, turned it off and then powered on. The cd loaded GPLCD and I selected the format disk option. NTFS was what I used.

I then put in my ACER recovery CD for the Acer Aspire 5920. All worked ok from this point onwards.

Hope this helps.

cheers
