I need a system recovery cd for my acer travelmate 290. when it is turned on it goes to boot menu and requires a cd to reboot the system. i think it has been wiped out. where do i get a download i can put...


Before you lose all hope of fixing it without having to purchase a fresh system from Microsoft, as the BIOS menu ends quickly press F8 and if the system is still intact you will be invited to repair your system from the hard drives recovery partition. If that doesn't work there are people selling start up disks on the internet, I haven't tried them and cannot comment.
Hope this helps.

I own an acer travelmate 290, and getting no display on monitor.


First check to see if your PC has a built in factory restore, or system recovery, usually available using CTRL & F12, F10, etc. Check your manual, if you don't then, OK try this, Startup PC, press F8 at instant of turn on... choose Safe Mode. when you are asked if you want safe desktop or system restore choose restore, when you get to the restore menu, choose a date BEFORE you had problems there may only be one or two to choose from. just follow the instructions and you should be back to working with all that behind you. If that doesn't work, boot up on your Windows DVD and do a "Repair Install", If thats doesn't work do a format and a reinstall.

Acer travelmate 290 error


Use another Bootable Disk Operating System to see it as may be the same problem you have. I think it's your Installer Disk have a problem.
From this problem it's windows system failure to show display appearance normally.
At least you try just one installing another Bootable Disk.
Good luck!
