Restore to original factory setting


Your computer may have a recovery partition set. Try pressing the Alt & F10 keys during the boot process (during the initial Pre windows black screen stage of the startup process) to obtain the "Boot Menu" and then select "Recovery" (Or similar wording) at the prompt. IMPORTANT: You should be aware that, if you select recovery either from a boot partition or from a recovery CD, that you may lose ALL data on your hard drive during the recovery process. If you are unsure what to do and you have important data on your hard drive that you don't want to lose, then I'd suggest you get a qualified technician to recover your system - if you advise that you have data, they will always try and rescue your stuff before repairing your OS.

What's your cant access my c drive


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and fileson this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

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 cannot get my acer aspire e380 ase380-ud500a desktop cd door open. i do not see a little hole anywhere


It may be hard to see, but there is a very small hole in the CD drive that is almost the exact size of the end of a paper clip. Gently push that paper clip wire into the hole. You will meet some resistance and the drive will open.

Most times when you see this message it means your computer can not see you hard drive when booting. I am having same problem and i my case is mo mother board has issues with SATA ports. You can try to replace hard drive cable and also try testing it in another computer. other than mother board this can be also hard drive it self. Test in another pc to determine is it or not. If no other pc by a docking station or hard drive enclosure and use it as usb external drive and see can you access it.you can use any computer even your friends. Hope this helps.

Hi!
Would you plz explain more!
What I understand is you want to restart your computer but you can't!
If this is the problem, You need to provide me with system you working on, if it's XP, you may try this:
Click "Run" from "Start Menu" then type: sfc /scannow
It will ask you to insert the Win XP CD in the CD ROM Drive, then press continue.
Wait untill the operation finishes then try again.
If your problem is different, please explain more!
