Well, don't panic! Nowadays, the formatting process will not actually erase all the contained data on a computer drive as we think. The deleted data is still there and becomes invisible. So, act carefully to get these deleted data back:
1. Stop using this drive right now in case that any new file on it may overwrite your deleted data.
2. Connect this drive to your computer.
3. Download a formatted drive data recovery freeware to retrieve all your lost data back for free:

This professional data recovery freeware has helped many people around me restore their inaccessible data off from a phone/camera memory card or hard drive. It could be a good choice for you to go on.
Try to read more detailed information of this drive data recovery freeware here:

4. Do not save or back up all the restored data on the same drive in case of any data loss.
Next time, you should be more careful about your important data and always back it up well.

How do i get a back door password for my acer aspire 5315 as i forgot my password


There is no back door password but you can try this

At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery. The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD. If the hard drive is replaced the system loses its eRecovery features. These features are on the hard drive and cannot be reinstalled
  • Be sure that you back up your data files before performing this option. All of your personal data files and applications are erased during the recovery process.
  • Due to the large number of virus and Spyware threats on the Internet, it is recommended that you disconnect all Internet connections before performing the recovery. After the recovery, antivirus and firewall software can be installed, and then the Internet connection can be re-enabled to update the antivirus definitions and perform Microsoft® Windows Updates.
  1. Remove all CDs or DVDs from the optical drives.
  2. Turn off the computer, using the normal Windows shut down process.
  3. After the computer is turned off, disconnect all USB devices except the keyboard and mouse. This includes USB devices such as a printer, scanner, removable storage, or camera.
  4. Turn on the computer. After the Gateway BIOS logo appears, press ALT+F10. The easiest method is to hold down the ALT key and repeatedly press the F10 key.
5.Windows loads files. 6. If you get EDIT BOOT OPTIONS for Windows Setup hit the ENTER key 6.1. If you get EDIT BOOT OPTIONS for Windows 7 , Try ALT + F10 (ALT on the right side of the Space bar) 7. You will get the Recovery console , Select completly Restor to Factory Settings.

Hi my acer aspire 5315 will not boot up, i turn it on i get nothing but the little cursor in the top right hand corner...can anyone help please thank u in advance


That is probably because some important boot files are missing. What you can try is to take out the hard drive and move it to another acer aspire 5315 computer. To take out the hard drive, remove ALL electrical components (power cable, battery, etc.), open the computer's hard drive bay, and take it out VERY carefully. Make sure you do not cut the cables. That could damage the hard drive. Then, you remove the hard drive on the other acer aspire 5315 computer using the same instructions above. Then, you can identify the missing boot files (they will be in a hidden drive called System Reserved), copy them onto your computer's hidden System Reserved drive (if it's missing you'll have to create one manually), and put it back in the other acer aspire 5315 computer. Make sure that you put the wires where they were when you removed them, otherwise the hard drive might not work. Then, try turning on the computer again.

Need to replace acer aspire 5314 hard drive. Where can I find one?


You need a 2.5" 150 Gigabyte drive; however, those laptops are prone to a short in the serial connection from the motherboard. This is an almost impossible task for an novice user to change a motherboard and the cost is not worth it. I installed a new hard drive and although the laptop recognized it, it still will not recognize it and load the operating system. Tested drive on another laptop and it works flawless. The hard drive became bad from the short which you can sometimes hit the bottom of the unit and make it work long enough to backup the data.

Want to reset my aspire 5315-2326 to out of box condition


Most Acer computers have a built-in system restore partition that will restore the computer to factory settings. At startup, press the F10 key and you will be directed to the system restore menu. Follow the instructions there to restore your system.

CAUTION: This will format your hard drive and you will lose all of your data. Back up anything that you want saved from your hard drive BEFORE you begin this process.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

No boot disc


Yes bunnydawg could be indeed correct. Although also make sure you don't have a flash drive, external hard drive, or any CD/DVD left in the drive first. As they could try to boot from the device and fail (because they are not setup and formatted as bootable) and it will report the very same message.

Format


Hi

two options

  1. The original restore dvd / cd can be used to format and restore the computer to the original state it came on.
  2. Use the windows installation cd, format the hard drive during the setup and then continue with installing windows, at the end you will need the device drivers and those are available at http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html
