Question about Acer Aspire 4520-5582 Notebook
My laptop crashed, and there is no way to access windows. When I tried to reboot fron the disks, it gave me a window that said "Recovery32 Type mismatch" What can be done?
I had this problem with my Acer Aspire 5920. What I had to do was use GPLCD which is a linux utilty to format the disk as NTFS. It is available here. http://gparted-livecd.tuxfamily.org/
For me it was easy as I have another computer here. I downloaded the iso file and created a CD which is bootable.
I put it in the drive for the laptop when the computer was on, turned it off and then powered on. The cd loaded GPLCD and I selected the format disk option. NTFS was what I used.
I then put in my ACER recovery CD for the Acer Aspire 5920. All worked ok from this point onwards.
Hope this helps.

Reformatting was the answer for me also. You must use external system disk to boot from. Western Digital has LifeGuard software downloadable for free. It works great for most hard drives.
