Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Turns Off When using the recovery program to make an image of the C drive it turns off shortly after it reboots and starts running the Ghost program. I also tried booting from a Ghost CD and the same thing happens, even if I don't even run Ghost, about 2 min after it boots into DOS it turns itself off. Does not turn off when in Windows except when I try to run Spybot Search and Distroy.

I am thinking 1 of three things first off acers are very nice computers but hard computers,I have seen this promblem before,you are going to have find a search and remove promgram for this spybot and completely remove it from your pc, it sounds as though it is causeing some conficts between software and your computer isn't listening to you....You mite try www.MajorGeeks.com
for free removel software of some sort after removeing it I would suggest completely shutting it down and re booting it,after that try reinstalling your reboot disc (but, make sure that you go into bios and set up download from cd rom ) don't forget to unhook any unnessarry hard ware such as scan drives printers and usb port items or it will cause more nuts then now. lala linda

Trying to restore back to factory settings


System Recovery
When you've tried other methods of repairing your
system software (like System Restore or Application
Recovery), you may want to use the Compaq System
Recovery program as a last resort to reinstall the software.
When necessary, you can reinstall the operating system and
the application software that was originally installed on the
PC at the factory by using the System Recovery program.
WARNING: The Compaq System Recovery
program will delete any data or programs
that you installed after purchase. Be sure to
back up any data that you want to keep onto
a removable disc.
The System Recovery program uses a special recovery
partition on the hard disk drive that stores an image of the
original software.
NOTE: The System Recovery image is in a partition area
of the hard disk drive and takes up part of the total drive
space. This disk space is not usually available for your use.
In the unlikely event that you replace the hard disk drive,
or somehow damage the data in the special recovery
partition on the hard disk drive, use recovery discs to
reinstall the operating system and software on the hard disk
drive. See "System Recovery Using Recovery Discs."
Make your own recovery discs (CDs or DVDs) before you
need them; see "Creating Recovery CDs/DVDs." You can
also make the Recovery Tools CD. This CD contains utilities
that allow you to make changes to your hard disk drive; see
"Using the Recovery Tools CD."
Starting System Recovery
if the PC Is Responding
1 Turn off the PC. Disconnect all peripheral devices from
the PC except the monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse.
Turn on the PC.
2 Click Start on the taskbar, choose All Programs,
choose PC Help & Tools, and then click Compaq
System Recovery.
3 Wait until the System Recovery window appears asking
Do you really want to start System Recovery?
4 Click Yes to continue with the recovery process. If you
created recovery discs, you may be directed to insert
recovery disc #1. If the Recovery disc is a DVD, be sure
to put the disc in a DVD drive.
5 The PC starts the recovery; wait for the onscreen
instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
6 Complete the PC startup, finish the registration process,
and wait until you see the desktop. Then, turn off the PC,
reconnect all peripheral devices, and then turn on the PC.
Starting System Recovery if the PC
Is Not Responding
1 Turn off the PC. If necessary, press and hold the On
button until the PC turns off.
2 Disconnect all peripheral devices from the PC except the
monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse.
3 Press the On button to turn on the PC.
4 During the startup, do the following to enter the System
Recovery program:
When the black screen with the Compaq logo appears,
press the F10 key on the keyboard. (You have only a few
seconds to press the F10 key before the normal startup
process continues.)
5 The PC starts the recovery; wait for the onscreen
instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
6 Complete the PC startup, finish the registration process,
and wait until you see the desktop. Then, turn off the PC,
reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the PC.

I want to format my hard drive


If you have a true image to restore from, as like what is created with Win7 Pro Backup, or from Norton Ghost, you should be able to make a total restore. The destination drive had to be the same size or larger than from the drive the original image was taken from.

With Windows, you will require the image recovery DVD disk that are created using the OS that the image was generated from. With Ghost, you will require the Ghost recovery DVD disk to restore the image.

I can not detach my IBM Think pad 2662 lap top from the driver


I had the same issue. Here's what I did. Not sure if it will work for you. But give it a try.
1) turn on the machine and press "F2" to go into set up.
2) Press alt-p seven times to go to the last page.
3)Press the down arrow to highlight HDD password. Set a password as instructed and reboot the machine.
4) You can remove this password later once your machine starts fine.

Even if you didn't get try this too.


1. Make bootable CD which contains Norton Ghost or other disk image software
2. Boot your system using bootable CD with Norton Ghost software, u can use Hiren's CD ISO image. If u don't know about hiren just google it.

2. Once you boot up , open Norton Ghost click LOCAL-> PARTITION->FROM IMAGE

3. Now "look in" for "[DellRestore]FAT drive" and select this drive (this is recovery partition)

4. Now go to "IMG" folder and select FI.GHO file

5. Click Open and there you go... Process started

I get the blue screen when I turn my computer on. I cannot get into Safe Mode or anything. I was told that i can press Control something when it is starting to run the system recovery. I cant figure...


Use ERD Commander if your CD-ROM is working you will be able to boot the PC using this tool then check a few critcial checking steps.

http://rapidshare.com/files/251960002/ERD_Commander_2005.zip

If this doesn't work you will only be able to enter the recovery console if you installed it before the BSOD using your Windows CD or I386 cab files.

Hindsight is a great thing but for future reference its a good idea to create a drive image using Norton Ghost of Drive Image.

I purchased new laptop Sony Viao Model No -VGN-C2 .I have 80 GB HDD.In that i got 8GB EISA Partition .And rest of the Other Partition is only C: Drive.So when i asked my dealer so he replied me that it is...


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Symantec's Norton PartitionMagic 8.0 and Norton Ghost 10.0, they're both good Choices—but you can use any nondestructive partitioning utility and the backup app of your choice, of course. And all you need to do is create a partition that's large enough to hold your stuff; then back up your primary drive to the partition. If and when the time comes to restore, run Ghost and expand the backup image to your primary drive. Presto: You're back in business

For the best results, start with a fresh install of Windows, then load your applications, utilities, and drivers. Make sure to install all the latest updates as well, especially for Windows and your security software. Finally, tweak your system so it's exactly the way you like it: video resolution, wallpaper, the works.

Create The Partition
Fire up PartitionMagic (or a similar utility) and create a partition with enough available space to hold Windows and your apps. Ten gigabytes should be ample for most users (remember, the backup image will be compressed), but consider making it larger if you have a lot of programs installed or storage space to burn.

NTFS is the file system. As for the partition type, the active partition is the one that boots the system. You need to create a logical drive (that is, one you can assign a drive letter), which will live in an extended partition—the app takes care of that part.

Set Up Ghost
Run Ghost (or a similar utility) to create a new backup. Don't bother with scheduling, as this particular backup is a one-time-only affair. Disabling your virus checker prior to starting the backup is a good idea; AV can gum up the works.

Recover
To use the recovery partition, make sure you've backed up all your vital data to another drive or removable media, then boot your PC with the Ghost CD loaded in the optical drive. You'll then be able to restore from the partition to your primary drive, resulting in a ready-to-roll PC with all your apps, drivers, and settings loaded.

Dell Precision 490 constant reboot after ghost image completed


Hello-

I figured out how to ghost a Dell Precision 490 with a 32 bit Windows XP Image! Like you I had the same problem where it would constantly reboot after I imaged it with an existing 490 image. The answer is actually very simple. Boot up your Precision 490 and hit F2 to enter the bios. Select Drives and then SATA Operation, change it to "Raid Autodetect / ATA". Reboot the 490 and re image the machine, it will now work!

hi,
yea you may, but make sure that you have already created a *Ghost* image of your current setup.

All you need is a bootable CD with some utilities which will help you out.

Try "hiren's Magic Disk 9.5" : it is bootable disk with proper menus and lots of utilities to make you king of your system.

This disk is usually used by System professionals (including me) :)

Instructions:
1. Boot your system with this magic disk
2. Goto Clone Disk option (Ghost disk)
3. Choose Best compression version
4. utility will start Symantec Ghost which will ask you for the source partition and destination partition for making images.
5. proceed with proper answers.
6. once the ghost imaging is complete, store this ghost image in your external storage drive
7. again boot your system with this magic disk
8. goto Partition utilties
9. Select Acronis Partition manager
10. You'll love to use this software for hard disk maintanence.

Regards,
kuldeep

I need a recovery disk for my Vista OS preinstalled on Acer Aspire T180. Can I create it by myself? (Recently my system crashed and I had to a tecnichian for using his recovery disk)


You can use a hard drive imaging program such as Norton Ghost to create a recovery DVD(s). Norton Ghost is available as part of System Works or as a stand alone program. Power Quest's Drive Image is also an alternative, however it is too old to be compatible with Vista - you could do a Drive Image outside of Windows - booting off the Floppy.

Partition


Most likely the shop experts repartitioned the drive, replacing the MBR and backup. The only way to restore the original configuration is to do one of the following:
1) Send it to a Sony repair center
2) Get the PE or system restore CD/DVD for that model and run the setup
3) Get a ghost image of an original drive using your own PE or boot disk to restore the ghost image. (good luck with this one)
