  • mwdoles Dec 11, 2008

    My Acer came up with a "load error". After recovering the data I attempted to reinstall the OS. F10 didn't go anywhere. The recovery disk ran to finish but the load error still came up after re-boot. Any suggestions past this step?

Alt+f10  push together. if the restore files still working  it will start automaticly. if files are broken down  acer doesnt support this in warranty.  you need setup xp or vista manuelly.ç
sorry for my english  have a nice day.

If you want to make every thing look like the first time you bought it you will need to preform something called a system recovery you can do this when you start up your computer and it will say some like f10 system recovery press that button and if that does not work then call tech support for a Cd that they can give it may come at a cost if you dont have a warrenty

How to fromat labtop acer extensa 4620


Acer laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you can restore the computer to factory default (please note that this will erase everything). The hotkey for the recovery is the ALT+F10 key. After you press the power button, you need to hold ALT and then simultaneously press the F10 key to start system recovery.
Once the recovery menu has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings.

Acer Extensa 4620-4605. Hidden hard drive? What is it for and how do I find it?

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!

You can set your computer back to factory settings. To do so:

Turn Off the computer; now hit the power button,, as soon as you hit the power button press ALT key and then tap F10 key (i.e ALT+F10); this will come up with the recovery screen, select full system restore or Factory restore and follow onscreen instructions.

Thanks and regards,

This is problem with the OS. You have to look for "Acer eRecovery Management" in the start menu and you can restore the computer to factory setting. The other option is if you have a Windows Disk you can repair the OS.
Let me know if you have any issue. Thanks for using

The best place to download drivers is the manufacturer's website. The Acer webpage for Extensa 4620 downloads is here:)

Note you can download not only the drivers but also the additional Acer utilities for this notebook. I am not familiar with one called eRecovery. If you are going to use as a 'what if', you should download everything into separate folders within a master folder (like C:Acer Drivers) and burn it to CD, as the hard drive might not be accessible at the time of 'what if'.
