Welcome and thank you for using fixya.

Hidden harddrive or partition are usually alloted for factory restore software.This software will restore your computer to original factory state without using the recovery disk. In order for you to find if you hve one in your computer. All you need to is to go to computer management then go to disk management. The easiest way to get there is by clicking the start menu then type in under start search or run bar this compmgmt.msc then press enter.

All the best!

Is Acer Extensa 4620 Notebook support 1tb hard disk


If it is Win7 and is partitioned to two 500Gb or three 330Gb drives, I see no reason why not but it will run very slowly!

Will acer extensa 5230E reinstallation cds contain windows


A driver restore disk works with a windows disk to return your Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 back to the original factory setup.

Once windows has installed you put this disk into the drive as soon as windows gives you a found new hardware dialog box. Once inserted the Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 will automatically find all the drivers and also install most of the original factory software. BEWARE OF GENERIC DISKS ! All Drivers and factory software are operating system specific so you must have the correct software and drivers for your Acer Extensa 5230EWindows 7. Some of the drivers you would find on this Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 Restore Disk are listed below. Not all will be applicable to your system as this list is for information only for Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 Restore Disk.

THIS DISK DOES NOT CONTAIN AN OPERATING SYSTEM!
YOU WILL NEED TO INSTAL Windows 7 FIRST OR USE AN EXISTING INSTALL.

Hope this helps

Acer Extensa 4420 suddenly won't boot. Don't have recoery disks. Can I download them from internet, burn to disks on another computer, and then use them on the Acer?


Modern PCs and laptops have the operating system tucked away on a hidden part of the hard drive. You will have to read the manual or - better - get the manufacturers on the phone to find out how to recover or reinstall the system.

Acer extensa 4630z will not boot up. System restore will not work. how can I reformat hard drive?


If you want to go down the route of reinstalling windows, you will need the windows disk which came with the laptop.

Insert the Windows CD that came with your PC, and reboot your system. If you didn't receive a Windows disc with your machine, the files you need are sitting in a hidden partition on your hard drive. To access them, press the keys indicated on your screen when you reboot, but before Windows loads.

If it gives you the option to boot from the CD, make sure to do this.

Once you have got to this stage you follow the steps through. Delete all the partitions and the format the hard drive. You will then be able to do a clean install of windows.

Best of luck
