You're computer is still good and will work fine after an operating system reload. You can order a set of recovery discs directly from Acer, or you can purchase an operating system disc from Walmart or Bestbuy, either way will work. Keep in mind that if you order recovery discs from Acer that the operating system and the drivers for your machine will be included. If you just purchase an operating system disc, then you will have to go to Acer's support site and down load any drivers that you need after the install. Also, check in the set up to see if the machine is still recognizing the hard drive. If it doesn't, you may have crashed the drive during the interruption.

    Crashed means failed, and the only way to fix the drive is replacement. Bestbuy is very expensive. To have them reload the system I believe they start at around $160, and that's if you don't have to purchase any hardware, ie... hard drive. Find a small computer shop in your area, they will treat you better and have a much better price.

Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc:



http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2083-system-repair-disc-create.html



"This will show you how to create a Windows 7 system repair disc to use to boot to the system recovery options if you don't have a Windows installation disc, can't find your Windows installation disc, or can't access the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer."

If you do not have access to either disc: Windows 7 - Repair Disc download

http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/


a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.


b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click 'Next'.


Note: If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the 'Install Now' prompt (Do not pick the Install Now option) instead choose the 'Repair your computer' option located in the lower left of the dispay.


c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options.

Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?"


d) Click 'Repair and restart' and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.


e) Click 'Next' at the keyboard selection prompt and when the 'System Recovery Options' screen appears verify that the "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows" is selected.
Note that on your Dual Boot system there now should be only one operating system listed. Click the 'Next' button.


f) Now from the menu list select the 'Command Prompt' option.

g) At the DOS prompt type the following three commands:

bootrec.exe /fixmbr

bootrec.exe /fixboot (may return an 'Eliment not found' message)

bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd


h) Close the command prompt window and click the 'Startup Repair' option.


i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" and "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".


These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive. Ignore the Send/Don't send options.


J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Don't send window.

Next click on the 'View advanced options for system recovery and support' option and from the main menu once again click 'Startup Repair'.


This time the repair process may only that a few seconds and when prompted "Startup Repair could not detect a problem", click 'Finish' and run the 'Startup Repair' option one more time, click 'Finish', and then remove the System Repair DVD and click 'Restart'. Reboot the computer.


hope this helps

I want to reset it


@lslchrisorei

Toshiba laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you don't need to use a disc to restore it to factory default (if that's what you mean by "I want to reset it". The hotkey for the recovery is the 0 key (don't use the key on the numpad). To activate it, you need to turn the computer off, then you need to hold the 0 key then turn the computer back ON. If you hear a continuous beep, you can let go of the key and It will then say "Windows is loading files" and will proceed with System Recovery. If this doesn't work, that means that this computer doesn't have the hidden partition for you to restore the unit to factory defaults (either it's faulty or it's not there) and you need to order the recovery discs from Toshiba at 1-800-457-7777 (for US) and for Canada, it's 1-800-663-0378.

If you're still under warranty, they'll give it to you for free.

Cheers

I don't think it is your hard drive but here is what you could do:
Press F8 at start up to enter start options, choose safe mode with networking or last known good configuration.
Use the built in system recovery, press F11 or F12 at start up to enter recovery partition.
Use a set of recovery disc to do a system repair or to install new original operating system.
Order the recovery disc set from the website by model and serial number.

Free download full system recovery of windows 7 home premium


Hi ,
There is no need to download anything but you can create an image of your entire system + a System Repair Disc .
Go to Start and type " back up " in the search bar . Now select " back up your computer " and click on " create a system image " in the next window and follow instructions . You' ll need an external HDD to transfer the image to it .
At the end of the procees , Windows will ask you if you want to create a System Repair Disc . Insert a cdrom ( it's sufficient , you don't need a dvd ) in your drive and click on " yes " .
In case of a later issue , you just need to load the repair disc and your system will be fully restored to the date of the image creation . So , you need to repeat the operation from time to time .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

How do I reset the tower of a dell computer


If you are talking about reseting and clearing the cmos, then take the door panel off fromt he computer, locate the motherboard and there should be a battery size of a nickel/silver, pull this out for a min or so, and reinsert back on and turn your computer on, this will fully reset your bios. If you are talking about system recovery, then insert the recovery disc if provided and restart your computer, sometimes you need to set your booting priority to your cd-drive. If it has a partition recovery, it should prompt you on your dell logo bootup screen of pressing a key to do a system recovery.
