How do I reboot my acer laptop with my copy disk?


When turning your laptop on, before Windows starts booting, a splash screen appears first (usually with the logo of the manufacturer). Look on the splash screen (usually at the bottom) for a key (usually F10 or F11), assigned for System Recovery CD/DVD with the laptop. or 1.Press the start button from the start menu depending on your operating system(win 2000,xp) 2.Press Ctrl+Alt+delete combination from the keyboard. 3.If you have a power button on your laptop keyboard,it could also be useful by pressing and hold it down for few seconds N.B: "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" can exit you from usage and trigger a reboot or shutdown. Try and reboot using the operating system. Attempt to use the key combination that will allow you to exit from the operating system and restart the laptop. Be patient, as it may take some time if it has locked up. Hold down the power button. If the operating system's answer to the rebooting will not work, find and hold down the power button of the laptop. This should cause the device to shut itself off. You'll have to press the power button again to power it back on, completing the reboot. Unplug from the wall and remove the battery. If restarting via the operating system and the power button do not work, unplug the laptop from the wall outlet, and remove the battery from the laptop. This will cause it to power off immediately. Allow time to reboot. Give the laptop time to cool down before you power it back on if you had to do this manually. A few seconds should do unless you have additional problems.

All the Best!

I want to reboot my acer aspire 7730 laptop to factory settings? but it did not come with a cd in the box?


You're right, the CD's did not come in the box. When you initially set up your laptop you were given an option to make these CDs. If you go to START you should see a line about making Recovery CDs. If not check in Accessories, System. Unless it's been deleted there should be a file that allows you to make recovery CDs. In case you get confused in your search Acer sometimes calls this there eRecovery system. You can also purchase these CDs from the Acer support site.

I have an acer travelmate 252LC_DT which whenever I start doesn't load the operating system and just displays a blank screen. Prior to this the Micro-antivirus 2009 virus was located on the laptop and I...


ok my friend as you said the operating system is not loading any more so that means we are having some corrupt files that makes the windows to fail while trying to boot up.

and since you cannot even log in to the computer even in safe mode that means you have only two options.

first is to try a repair (most of the computers use F12 key to get to the repair counsel).
second reinstalling windows.

so try the first one if it doesn't work then reinstalling windows will be the last thing to do.

if you need and further help please let me know

cheers

We bought Acer TravelMate 2420 almost 2 years ago without recovery CD and now we need this CD so bad and we don't know what to do. We have a virus and we need to restore the Laptop but we can't without...


Contact acer or check their website they should have a disk you can either download or order, they might charge to order it though to do a full wipe of the system and reinstall. otherwise you can di a full format and install from scratch with the OS of your choice. but that would leave you to search for the required drivers.

Make recovery discs for travelmate 5520


Hi,

There are two (2) versions of the Acer TravelMate 5520; TM5520-5313 (LX.TKU0Z.001) & TM5520-5678 (LX.TKU0Z.003).

There are two (2) possible ways you can get Recovery CDs:
1. Purchase from Acer here. You would need your 22 character Serial Number or the SNID which is 11 chars.;
2. Borrow from a friend with identical model, copy and burn to CD(s).

Alternately, you can install Windows Vista using an OEM CD (which again can be borrowed). You need to use the Windows key normally found in a sticker underneath the laptop. Thereafter, you need to download from the Acer website the appropriate drivers and install. You would need to select your Product Line, the Product itself and eventually the driver(s) that you need.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
