Try holding <Alt GR> & <F10> whilst Powering Up the Computer.
This will reload to factory default of Vista from hidden pre-installed sector on HD.

How to Format a Computer with Windows Vista

Warning - Formatting hard drive information does not permanently erase the data. Even after a computer has been formatted, deleted files can be easily recovered. If you want to permanently wipe your hard drive by completely overwritting hard drive data, check out WipeDrive.
To format your hard disk during Windows Vista installation, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using the Windows Vista installation disc or USB flash drive.

  1. Turn on your computer so that Windows starts normally, insert the Windows Vista installation disc, and then shut down your computer.

  2. Restart your computer.

  3. Press any key when prompted, and then follow the instructions that appear.

  4. On the Install Windows page, follow any instructions that are displayed, and then click Install now.
    • If the Install Windows page doesn't appear, and you're not asked to press any key, you might need to change some system settings. To learn how to do this, see Start Windows from a CD or DVD.
  5. On the Get important updates for installation page, we recommend getting the latest updates to help ensure a successful installation and to help protect your computer against security threats. You will need an Internet connection to get installation updates.

  6. On the Type your product key for activation page, do one of the following:
    • If you are reinstalling Windows Vista, you should enter your product key now.
    • If you are not reinstalling Windows Vista, you can skip this step.
  7. On the Please read the license terms page, if you accept the license terms, click I accept the license terms.

  8. On the Which type of installation do you want? page, click Custom.

  9. On the Where do you want to install Windows? page, click Drive options (advanced).

  10. Click the partition that you want to format and click Format
    • If you have more than one partition on this hard drive and want to get rid them to make one big drive again, then select a partition and click on the Delete option for each partition. Once you have deleted all of the partitions, select the Unallocated Space partition and click Format
  11. When you've finished formatting, click Next.

  12. Follow the instructions to finish installing Windows Vista, which include naming your computer and setting up an initial user account.
    • If you do not want to reinstall Windows Vista, you can cancel the installation at this point and keep your newly formatted drives.

Hiya Pete!
Why in the heck would you use VISTA?
It still has a ton of issues and driver problems?
I was a Beta Tester for MS Vista.
If you certian thats what you want, make sure you have all of the service packs or go back to the stable XP.

Assuming you can't get it to run from the desktop icon, as long as the driver is installed which it should be, you don't need Belkin software to run your connection.

the easiest way in Vista is to go to control panel>network and sharing centre and see if network discovery is ticked green.

If not on top left of window is connect to a network, then see if your wireless connection is listed, if so click connect, if not at the bottom of the window, click set up a connection or network and follow the wizard.

Reinstalled windows xp profesional after hd crash. Did not have the original acer aspie 5100 recovery disc to install. Now the cd dvd rom is not recognised by laptop


if you originally had Vista on then the bios is updated from the older XP bios and wont see the drive, check here for bios downloads, or put Vista back on.

If you have a full XP disc you will need to do a full format and installation, do not use somebody elses restore disc as it's not the complete windows that you will need.

Trying to reinstall xp with recovery discs, now i cant get it to boot


If you can boot go to safe mode using F8, see if you can do system restore from start/programs/accessories/system tools.

If you cannot boot, or system restore does not work you need to reinstall Windows, either using recovery CD from Acer, or generic Windows disk. In last case you will need to reinstall driver after installing windows.
If you do not format hard disk or delete partition, you will be able to recover your data (documents, pictures, music, desktop contacts etc) after installing Windows.

Always better than incinerating your Acer.

Since you updated the computer to Vista, the adapter will no longer work because it uses XP drivers. You need to uninstall the adapter completely and then reinstall it using the correct Vista drivers. The drivers are available on the Belkin Support site.

Ive got a compaq pc with xp im after formating xp and installing vista as my other computer is vista all the settings r all over the place


In regards to the pc that you formatted and reinstalled with vista, is it vista compatible. Vista requires a minimum hardware requirements. Below are the minimum hardware requirements.

"modern" CPU, 512MB of RAM, and a Direct 9-class graphics card

Here is a link to an interesting article regarding vista compatibility. It is a little old but still worth the read.
