Look at it this check the cd's if cd's came with the computer they usually put the codes on them for certain software that are bundled together lazy bastards.

or maybe they gave you a trial version of the software and your trial is up.

Ps check the manual too sometimes it is in their or the side or under the bottom of the pc

let me know if this helps

Restore to factory


Try the manufacturer's website to read the manual for the process to start the Factory Restore. I hope they put a restore partition on your hard drive, otherwise it might not work.

System Restore will allow you to select a Restore Point (date and time) to set your system back to when it was working ok. It does not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Date you selected).

System Recovery (sometimes referred to as Factory Restore) will set your system back to when you first purchased it. It Deletes Everything. Most times the System Recovery does not work unless there is a recovery partition on your hard drive created by the manufacturer. If you are trying to recover from a set of cd's most times it does not work.



Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for Manuals on the site.


Instead of doing a System Recovery it's much easier to just Reinstall Windows. Look on your computer for the Certificate of Authentication (COA) Sticker. It will tell you what operating system is on your computer and it will give you the Product Key Code (a series of 5 letters and numbers) that you will need to activate windows. If you don't have an operating system disk, borrow one from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. Just make sure it is the same as your COA Sticker's operating system or it will never activate. Also make sure you get the COA Product Key Code for the disk you borrow because sometimes the system will ask for the one that is on your system and sometimes it will ask for the one from the installation disk.

I accidently switched off my mains before the system had completely shut down. As a result I'm unable to boot up, tried several times from all angles.\r\n\r\nGetting a message to the effect: The...


Acer Process 4/12 eRecovery Management indicates that the recovery process never finished - you will have to run it all over again.
As for MS Office , it came as a one month trial in your laptop - if you had it for more than that then you bought it. In that case the activation key must still be in your possession, just insert it when asked.
In the absolute worst case (the reinstall never finishes, no matter what you try) you will have to get a separate recovery disk from
https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=acer
and use it to reinstall.

Hello, according to Acer's website the default password is 000000 (six zero's). If that does not work try the step below.

Browsed to PQSERVICE hidden partition.
Opened "aimsdrs.dat" with text editor. (in root folder not "tools")
and "password" PD= "____" and "hint" HD="____"

Hope this helps!

Casio TE 2200 0 instead of 0.00 I just bought the new te 2200 but i can not programing. is that the problem with mac code ?


Yes. This machine has not had a RAM clear and system settings performed. Take it back to the dealer and ask them to perform the dealer programming on it, then you can program the user data for products etc yourself. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If anyone needs a Casio TE-2200 manual, go here: http://the-checkout-tech.com/manuals/cashregisters/Casio_TE-2200_users_manual.html

So, please can you tell me where you try to use this product key?

Missing Vista home basic product number


Acer gives you the option to create your own cd's. Click the start button & go to all programs. Look through the programs installed. Someting like DVD pro. or nero. There is a program in there so you can creat your own set of restore cd's. The reason your PC is so slow is because Acer loaded the system up with a ton a junk you'll never use. (Can always return it). I would befor the warranty runs out.........

Good Luck!
