    You need to start the laptop with the recovery disk inside CD, so to
    have the laptop booting from cd, this will start recovery mode.

    On some EI machine (usually desktops) you can start the recovery mode from EI tools under start menu button.

    You can contact them and ask a replacement manual and cd.

First: backup your important data files/foto/music/videos and them


If your ARCHOS does not respond correctly or does not start properly, you can try to remedy this situation with a system recovery. Be very careful with this as there are options to erase all the data on your device.

- Turn off the device and wait 10 seconds.
- Press and hold the volume + button while powering on the device.
- Keep the volume + pressed until the Recovery mode starts (white screen).
- To move from one Go to this web page to see the latest on-line version of this manual. Go to this web page to see the latest on-line version of this manual.

To select an option, press the ON/OFF button. Go to this web page to see the latest on-line version of this manual.

20.3.2. RECOVERY MODE OPTIONS

No: Cancels the system recovery.
Update firmware: Allows you to connect your device to a computer in order to copy the latest .AOS file (operating system) to your device and then install it.
Repair System

No: Return to main recovery screen.

Check Disk: Check and repair the system partition if damaged.
Start USB MSC: Allows you to connect your device to a PC to access the internal memory.
Format System: Formats the internal memory. All data (music, photos, videos, etc.), applications and settings are erased.

How do i reformat an acer laptop back to factory settings?


If you have a recovery partition press ALT and F10 at the same time, do this when you see the Acer logo, if this works! make a backup recovery disc in case of hardware failure.

My Acer 5100 PC Notebook will load past my user account, but then all it shows is an blank, black screen and the cursor. I've tried rebooting it in all sorts of ways but nothing seems to work. i also tried...


When you boot the machine tap the F8 (this is usually the correct key but some systems vary) and see if you can boot up in safe mode. If you get to safe mode try creating a new user by going to Start>Control Panel> Users ( in classic mode for control panel) and create a new user. If the problem doesn't occur in the new account you have a virus of some kind. Possibly a rootkit.

If you need more help please let me know. I don't know your level of computer experience so I don't have any idea as to what you might know how to do or not, as the case may be.

If it has windows, you can use F8 at power-up to boot into safe mode. Then you can select system restore from the control panel.

Computer locked up and can't get into anything


Try starting in safe mode and remove the offending program.

  1. Start the laptop
  2. After the Dell Screen vanishes begin pressing F8
  3. You will get a Windows Startup Screen
  4. Select SafeMode and press enter twice
  5. Windows should load up
  6. Go into Control Panel Add Remove Programs
  7. Remove the anti virus software and anything else you suspect maybe causing grief.
  8. Restart the laptop normally and see what happens.
  9. Hopefully by now you will be able to go back and do the factory imaging.
