It keeps tellin me no bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key... i also dont have a disk drive all i have is a ubs flash drive spot


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

How Do I Correct the Error and Recover an Acer Computer hard drive?


In order to correct the hard drive partitions so the recovery program will work, you can use a variety of tools listed below.

1) Active@ KillDisk - Use their free killdisk program to wipe the hard drive clean off all partitions.

2) Ubuntu or another Linux alternative bootdisk. Create a boot disk for the Ubuntu Live CD and boot the computer from it. During the boot process it will ask to "Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer". This is the option you want. Once Ubuntu loads, find the partition editor program under the System, Administration menu..

To delete a partition, right click on the partition that you wish to delete and select "Delete" from the menu. Once you are sure that you've selected the correct partition, and are positive that you have backed up all the files or data that you wish to save from that partition, click the "Apply" button at the top of the Window, and the partition will be deleted.

3) Use the Acer Hard Drive Format Utility, on some versions of Acer computers when you have the option to create Recovery disks, the system creates a hard drive format utility CD as well. Boot from this CD and format the hard drive.
The utility will recreate 1 partition (C: drive), after the partition has been created, you'll be able to reload the HDD with the backup media. The file is an ISO image for CD media only (not compatible with floppy diskettes). Create a CD disc from the ISO image file using a CD writer program on another computer.

Once the hard drive partitions have been deleted by any of the utilities above, you can proceed with rebooting the computer using the Acer System CD and proceeding with the complete recovery of the system.

To whom it may concern. im looking to reboot my acer 6935 but i dont know what way to do it, i dont have the recovery disc. could you please help. thanking you.. brian o' connell


This procedure will work usually unless there has been an alterations to the originally installed OS on the Acer. On recent Acer computers they have a hidden volume on the disk labeled PQService.
This volume is for restoring the computer to the factory settings in same condition as purchased new. It will erase everything currently on the main hard drive.

Step 1: Backup everything that is important to you, on a disk or separate hard drive.
This includes any documents, pictures and application installers.

Step 2: Reboot the system and press ALT-F10 during the POST to start the Acer eRecovery Management and reinstall the operating system.

Step 3: Select Restore system to factory default.

Step 4: The wizard will lead you through formatting the designated drive and installing the operating system from the computer hard drive to the designated drive.

How can I redo the hard drive on an Acer Aspire 3100?


I'm assuming you are using the Windows Operating system. Just insert your windows disk, reboot your computer - make sure you boot to CD, and go through the setup there. The setup should wipe everything from your hard drive.

I have an Acer Aspire x1700 and it will not reboot, I cannot locate the reboot disk. How can you help?


Yuo need a lot of try and error to be successful.
First your OS and the BOOT disk that comes with your machine.But if you dont had the CD you need to buy and download it.
Store like Bestbuy,CompUSA,etc.. sell this CD,s or go to this LINK where you can buy it online and download it, choose your OS and any other specs about your System.
After all you need to BURN the files in a blank CD or order for mail shipment.

Then we going to BOOT the system id the CD drive.

To rebuild your hard drive, do the following:
  1. Power up your Acer system.
  2. When prompted (after memory testing completes), press CTRL + ALT + ESC to enter CMOS setup.
  3. At the CMOS Setup screen select Advanced BIOS Features
  4. Verify the Boot Options Sequence is set to the following order:
    1st [CD-ROM]
    2nd [Floppy Disk]
    3rd [Hard Disk]
  5. Insert the Acer System CD, DISK 1 in your CD-ROM drive.
  6. Press F10 to exit and save. When prompted, Do you want to save CMOS data?, select [Yes], then press ENTER.
  7. The system will reboot from the CD-ROM. After booting from the CD-ROM, you will see the Acer Hard Drive Rebuild options displayed.

    Note: Use your mouse for choice selections during the HDD recovery process. The mouse will respond slowly during this procedure, DO NOT press the Enter key. Pressing the Enter key will cause the HDD recovery process to terminate.
  8. Select HDD Full Rebuild and follow the on-screen instructions.
  9. When prompted to insert Acer Recovery CD, DISK 2, wait for the CD-ROM to eject DISK 1.
  10. Close the CD-ROM tray and click OK. The system will continue to rebuild the hard drive back to factory load.
After being prompted to remove disk and restart system the unit will load system software and hardware. During this process the system will reboot several times.
Your Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity (COA) ID number will automatically be entered for you. Should you need this number for any reason, look for your Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity (COA) ID number on the cover of your system.

I bought a new hard drive for my acer 5100 and it


The different model of hard drive should not make a difference. As long as you are using the same type....IDE or SATA...you should be fine.

If you installed the new drive and now the computer keeps rebooting....you probably need to tell the computer to boot from the CD first and not the Hard Drive. When you first turn on the laptop, boot into BIOS by hitting the DELETE or F2 key....it is normally the Delete key.

This will boot into BIOS where you can find the BOOT OPTION menu and select the CD as the first boot device. This will allow the computer to boot from the Windows CD you should already have in your cd drive.

If this does not help.... I would take the new hard drive out and boot the computer without any drive installed. If you are still in a reboot loop, the problem is not with the hard drive and more than likely an issue with the RAM. To rule out the RAM, take one stick out and see if that makes a difference...repeat with the second stick....

Hope this helps
