Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire M1100 Desktop. I purchased it about 2 years ago. Unfortunately it did not come with a recovery disk so that i may set the computer back to factory (out of the box) settings. I was wondering where I could get this disk for my desktop. It is working properly and I'd like to start from a fresh start. Thank you all in advance.

Unfortunately Acer no longer has recovery media available for this model Aspire. However they still have the drivers available for download so, the easiest way to get this machine as close to it's original condition as possible is as follows;

First and formost: Make backup copies of all file, pictures, music, videos, etc. that you need to keep.

Next: Download the drivers for this system by going to www..acer.com. Once you're there, select USA and click on the Service & Support Tab and click on the driver download link.

Then, make the selections for you computer i.e.; desktop, aspire, m1100, and windows operating system.

Now download all of the drivers you need for your computer and put all of these drivers on a cd, dvd, or flashdrive for later use.

Re-install Windows and allow the installation process to re-format the hard drive during the installation.

Finally, re-install any programs and data that you have and install the drivers.

Take your time and it should all fall into place. It should all take you a good half a day or less. Good Luck!

Why do not restored disks work for Acer Aspire M1100?


Turn off the computer Henry then turn it back on and hold down the alt key and tap F10 and make sure you remove any disks from the CD drive.
It would appear that the hard drive is having boot sector issues.

Acer aspire m1100 desktop getting a no signal on monitor, how do I get my pc to open


My Acer Aspire M1100 would not boot and had no signal to the monitor. I thought the video card or motherboard had gone bad. I tinkered with it for over 2 years (yes I'm hardheaded) and finally realized the processor had worked itself loose. Reseated the processor and it works fine again. Hope this helps someone.

by default the hard drive should have a recovery partition. go to the support section of the manufactures website and you should find detailed instructions of how to boot to the partition. if that option has been corrupted, you can purchase a recovery disc directly from acer. i've ordered nearly a hundred for customers in the past and have never paid more than 20.00 for a disc or disc set.

below you will find a link that will allow you to enter your product serial number and direct you to the purchase of a factory recovery cd/dvd.

How do i put my acer computer in factory condition


From Aspire.pdf

Insert the startup disk you created during Windows setup into the floppy drive and
press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart your computer. This will automatically diagnose your system and make necessary fixes. However, if the diagnostic utility still reports a problem, then you may have to perform the recovery process to restore your system to its original default factory settings.

Note: For more information about recovering your system, refers to the RCD instruction sheet.

In other words you need your startup disk.

Hello,

If you used the restore disk on your computer it will erase all files, and all your programs. the restore Factory settings means "ALL" settings the time you created the CD for the restore.

If you have an individual Vista Installer CD with the Serial you can use it and use restore option.

Thank you for using Fixya
Hope this helps.

Got the same model. Had the same problem.

Remove all but one.
Swap out memory for different memory.
