Your options are either go to Acer for a replacement Vista recovery DVD or
Install a borrowed Vista DVD, must be same Vista Basic, Home Premium,
then use your registered CD key, normally located on the side or rear of your tower.
It will also tell which Vista type you have. You then must go to the Acer support site
and install then drivers for the componenets in you computer.
You will not have any other software installed that may have come with your
original setup from Acer. This option requires more work on your part, but
no cost to you. Acer will charge for a Recovery DVD, plus S&H.

The rescue disc that can only be made on your laptop by your laptop contains the required drivers. The Vista DVD on has generic drivers and may have specific drivers missing.
Are you attempting a fresh install or are there fragments of an old troublesome system still there?
If there is fragments left, after checking that the rescue/restore data is no longer on the hard drive, format the drive first and try again. It should then work.

I HAVE ACER ASPIRE 4530 LAPTOB AND VISTA OS BUT COPROCESSOR DRIVER HAS BEEN DAMAGED AND SYSTEM WORK VERY SLOW WHAT CAN I DO? HOW CAN I UPGRADE WINDOWS OR REPAIR


In order to repair your windows you will need to use support windows DVD which ships along with your laptop. put that DVD in and reboot the laptop. but first you will have to configure your boot priority to DVD first here is how you can do that http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/ss/bootorderchange.htm then next when that DVD boots up it, will ask you for complete new installation or repair windows. you can choose from there
i hope this helps!

Hi got a acer 5220 notebook it had vista installed i formatted it 2 xp but some drives dont work i have not got a cd for vista what can i do?


What drives don't work? It is probably just some drivers. I would recommend finding the drivers and using XP, but if you want to put Vista back on... You can borrow a Vista DVD (Vista won't fit on a CD) from someone you know that has one. You should have a Vista COA (Certificate of Authenticity) on the bottom of your laptop with your 25 Digit Product Key. All versions of Vista are on every Vista disk, so when you put your product key in, it will install the correct version.

Do you have the product key for Windows Vista - it should be on a sticker on the side of the computer. If so, you can try the following:
  • Borrow a friends DVD for Vista and enter your product key when asked.  This will automatically select the correct version of Vista as all version are stored on the same DVD.

Reformating


You need to have a windows vista dvd or a recovery/restore cd from Acer. CD-less installation will only work if your computer has a restore image which should be installed in the factory. I dont think acer dekstops have that though.

Just call Acer and ask for a vista dvd or see if you know someone who owns a computer which came with the same version of vista and borrow their dvd.

HOW DO I COPY A DVD TO MY ACER 6920G LAPTOP THEN BURN IT TO BLANK DVD. HAS A BLUERAY READER/REGULAR BURNER AND FROM WHAT I CAN SEE, HAS SOFTWARE THAT BURNS TO DVD FROM LAPTOP BUT NOT DVD TO LAPTOP


You can use a DVD copy program like Nero if there is one on your computer.

Nero checks to make sure that you DVD isn't copy protected before it copies it. If it is you won't be able to copy it.

Windows XP or Vista does't provide DVD copy software built into Windows.

Acre 5520 laptop


Hi,

Assuming already installed vista.

Just try doing flea power & the power cycle.

1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer,scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.

And press & hold the power button for 1 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.

Restart the system & check.

2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing & start the system.

Restart the system & check.

Is it giving any error messages.

Try booting in to safe mode.

If it does then the issue is with something.

Do you have two video adapters.

Try boot from the dvd & run the recovery for vista.

or the system restore from the dvd.

At last run repair reinstallation using the vista dvd.

Hope it helps.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
