How to format my acer 5620 without cd ?


Unless you have a cd for that version of windows in OEM style for xp and any for vista you will be out of luck. If you have another computer with the same OS and have its operating system installation cd, you can use this if it is the same version.

Windows XP needs to be exactly the same thing. Windows XP pro, home and media center are all different. So are Retail, Upgrade and OEM cds. For vista or 7 any disc will work that matches the version type, it will determine the version by the COA.

If you do not have access to any cd/dvds then you can contact Acer for a replacement. www.acer.com

Not sure what the Windows.Old folder will contain, but you can use another computer and go to the acer website and download the drivers onto a CD or USB drive then load them on to your formated computer.

My acer aspire 4520 unexpected turn off


If you formatted your disc, you have erased your hard drive and its operating system.

To reinstall your operating system you will need a CD/DVD drive. You can get Windows or Linux. You can download a copy from another computer and burn it to CD. Linux is free, and an easy version to start with is Ubuntu. You can download it here: http://www.ubuntu.com/GetUbuntu/download

Download the ISO file from that link, and burn it to a CD or DVD. If Windows doesn't recognize the format of the file you downloaded, you will also have to download a program burn the disc, such as Nero. You can download Nero here http://www.nero.com/enu/support-downloads.html

With the disc ready, turn on your laptop and put the disc in. It should automatically boot from your CD, if you hard drive has been formatted. If not, restart the computer and press F2 at the very first screen to enter BIOS. It will look like a blue console. In BIOS, go to Boot Options. Use the + and - keys to make the CD/DVD drive boot first, by moving it to the top of the list. Save and exit (F10). Your computer will restart and boot from the CD. Press a key to boot from the CD and follow the instructions to install your operating system.

If your laptop does not have a CD/DVD drive, you will have to use a USB drive to install your operating system. It is a bit more complicated to do, but you can find instructions here: moz-screenshot.pnghttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick

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
