You may need to reinstall the drivers. Open your Control Panel, the double-click on the "Device Manager. In the Device Manager window, look for "DVD/CDROM Drives" (or similar) and click on the little box to the left to view your DVD/CD drive.

Right-click on the drive, and select "Properties." Another window will open, containing several tabs. Click on the "Driver" tab, then click on "Update Driver." You will be given the choice to have Windows "Search automatically" for the driver, or "Browse my computer.."

If you "Search automatically..." Windows will search the Internet for the mlost recent driver, and if it is able to locate one, ask you if you want to Install. Clicking on "Browse my computer" will cause Windows to search your hard drive for the correct driver.

As a last resort, if you received a CD/DVD with your Acer, and you can get a hold of an external CD/DVD drive to connect (via one of the USB ports) you can have Windows search the original software disk and load the driver from that.

Hope this helps :)

How to do system recovery on aspire one


Hi you should be able to do the following, if not you will need an external CD drive & recovery disk.


1. Consider what data you still need from your Acer Aspire One's hard drive. Save the files to an external USB device.

2. Restart the Acer Aspire One's operating system. Wait for the Acer logo to appear on the LCD screen.

3. Press the "Alt" and "F10" keys at the same time to bring up the recovery menu. Press "Enter."

4. Click "Next." Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to restore the operating system back to factory settings.

5. Use the drop-down boxes to select the time zone and language information for your Acer Aspire One. Restart the netbook when you are prompted to finish restoring the computer.

6. Connect the external USB device to your Acer Aspire One and transfer the data you saved earlier back to the netbook.

Warning:
It is possible to delete the hard drive partition that has the recovery tool.

If your Acer Aspire One no longer has the recovery partition, you will need
to acquire an external USB DVD drive and then contact Acer for a recovery DVD.
Connect the USB drive to the netbook's USB port and then insert the recovery DVD in the drive.

Hope this helps.

I need to restore my netbook to factory settings but I don't have a flash drive or disk drive


Hi,

With Acer One's there is usually a hidden partition that will allow you to recover the operating system to factory defaults without the use of a flashdrive or a CD/DVD drive.

To recover the operating system please follow the below instructions carefully.

Consider what data you still need from your Acer Aspire One's hard drive. Save the files to an external USB device.

Restart the Acer Aspire One's operating system. Wait for the Acer logo to appear on the LCD screen.

Press the "Alt" and "F10" keys at the same time to bring up the recovery menu. Press "Enter."

Click "Next." Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to restore the operating system back to factory settings.

Use the drop-down boxes to select the time zone and language information for your Acer Aspire One. Restart the netbook when you are prompted to finish restoring the computer.

That should be it. All you have to do from there is restore any files you backed up before the recovery.


If there is anything else please post back.



Regards.

How do i restart my acer aspire 5290 laptop back to factory settings. it has a virus and i want to delete it all back to factory settings


You need to reformat your laptop then reinstall everything. When doing this, you need:

  1. You OS Installer (Windows needs a valid CD-key)
  2. Motherboard Installer (This CD/DVD Installer is usually shipped with your laptop when you bought it. This CD contains all the required drivers to make your laptop works perfectly back to its original state.
  3. If all these installers are ready, insert the Windows CD installer and restart your system.
  4. It will start a setup program on DOS mode. Just follow the on-screen instructions. Make sure that you "Delete" the existing partitions and "recreate" them. It will then format the drive and start the installation.
WARNING: Formatting your drive will delete all your personal files as well. Make sure that you back up all necessary files before doing these steps.

Acer 5535 how to restore back to factory settings


Hi

Thank you for your query

Restoring a laptop back to its factory settings can be done in one of 2 ways

1) Some manufacturers provide the recovery CD/DVD, simply put this disc in and restart the PC, the DVD/CD should boot and then you can follow the onscreen instructions

2) Some manufacturers provide hard drive based recovery, this mean rather than provide a CD/DVD,manufactueres put the recovery on a section of the hard drive. To use this method you click on start>Programs then find the name of the manufacturers folder. In this folder there will be a programme titled system recovery, factory settings. Click on this and follow through on the instructions

Acer aspire not loading to windows


Hi,

If you have recovery disc or back up disc put it in and restart the PC and start tapping the F12 key until at the Acer splash screen, you should get now see your boot order, now use your up and down cursor key to highlight the CD/DVD drive and then press enter, this will now start the recovery disc that you put in, just follow the on-screen instructions.

If you don't have a disc, restart the PC and at the Acer splash screen start tapping the ALT+F10 or just F10 and if you have a recovery partition on your hardrive then the recovery program will start up, just follow the on-screen instructions.

Thanks
