Go check this out, maybe it will help. It shouldn't matter what model you have, it should work (your link also). Be sure to read thru them carefully and if you think it's to much to handle then you might need a qualified technician to perform this operation. If you don't want to go thru all this then I'd suggest reinstalling the OS with a XP or Vista disk, this would 728735be easier and if something happened to the OS again, then you have a disk to reinstall in.

Tip

How to perform an ACER system Recovery from Hard Drive


What you need:
- Have the hidden partition previously unspoiled, at least working. It is usually called "PQSERVICE" without this you cannot use this guide
- os needed: Windows XP(should work with vista to) on a partition C:/ . c:/ also needs to have enough harddisk space to install your particular OS, for vista i suggest at least 10+ gig, xp 5gig+ (to be safe)
- I would think that PTEDIT32 is not supported by 64bit os's but if you find a similar program, please reply
- look through replies to this post for more tips!

[b]Supported by models:
- Aspire 5610 default os: Vista
- Acer 5101 with Win XP home.
- Look through other peoples postings for models supported.

1. Download: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/englis...s/PTEDIT32.zip

2. Launch PTEDIT in WIN XP and change the partition that has a 12 in it's boot to 07. Save and exit. Restart PC

3. Search for mbrwrwin and rtmbr.bin and find them on F: (or at least i did, it is the hidden partition's driveletter. Copy both to c:\

4. run cmd(command) and go to c:\ (use cd\)

5. type this: mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin

6. press enter, and let it do its stuff(this installs the alt+f10 option)


7. restart PC and press alt+f10 at post screen, or if you like me do not know what postscreen is, just press alt+f10 continuously from the first booting you see. If it don't work, make sure d2d recovery is enabled in bios

Factory recovery should begin and work perfectly.

But this proves that you can install a different OS on the computer and still get it back to factorydefault. My warranty says that the warranty gets broken if you install a different OS on the acer computer. But this installs all back to normal.

If you looked for a way to delete the partition, i guess the easiest way is to pop inn a windows XP installation cd and delete it from the XP setup.

My acer aspire 5515 laptop system error window show when I try to boot. Hiw do I fix it?


so what i guess its giving mbr not found and its not booting , the solution is you need to have the windows operating system disk and then when your acer laptop starts to boot click on f8 then click on repair windows then after that you will see 3 option click on the third it will say repair cmd then type as what is given below


Click on the "Repair Your Computer" option to gain access to the System Recovery window. Now choose "Command Prompt" to run the Bootsect.exe utility. Bootsect is located inside the boot folder so change your directory to boot. Now run "bootsect /nt60 C:\" (without quotes) if you had Windows 7 initially installed in the C partition. Alternatively, you can run "bootsect /nt60 SYS" or "bootsect /nt60 ALL" (without quotes) to repair the system partition or all partitions. Eject the DVD and restart your computer. Your computer should now boot Windows 7 again.

My Acer netbook aspire one just shut down on its own one day. Now it will only stay on for 25 seconds before turning off by itself completely! I tried going to setup - 25 sec. Regular boot -- 25 secs Safe...


You may have a Virus, try a factory restore. As you know, the Acer computers and those of other manufacturers are now delivered with a system of restoration installed in a hidden partition of your hard disk. This system launches out while pressing keys ALT+F10 simultaneously. And sometimes for various reasons this system ceases functioning.
The first cause often comes owing to the fact that function D2D Recovery is disable in the bios (menu principal).

The solution : enable the function and try to press keys ALT+F10 during the starting of the computer.

The second cause : in this case hidden partition PQSERVICE was erased or damaged, or you replaced the disc and in this case it is not present.

The solution : If you did not previously make a backup of your system by making an image disc. It will not be possible to use the D2D recovery. Your only hope will be to have in your possession Acer Recovery CD/DVD.

And the third causes : the Acer Master Boot Record (MBR)was damaged or replaced by non-Acer MBR. As long as partition PQSERVICE is present or that you can put the hand on the necessary Acer files you can reinstall the MBR of Acer.

The solution :

First method : on a functional Windows system:

1 disable the D2D recovery option of the bios.
2 open a Windows session with an account administrator.
3 Download, unzip and launch partedit32(registration required for download).
markymoo: ptedit32


4 Identify the Pqservice partition by its size (at the bottom of the partedit window there is a partition information box) it is a small sized partition approximately 2 to 6 Go.Once made change the type of your partition into 0C and save. Restart and open a session with an administrator account, you should be able to navigate to the PQservice partition. Seek these two files mbrwrdos.exe and rtmbr.bin once localised open a command prompt and launch this command mbrwrdos.exe install rtmbr.bin, this will install the Acer MBR. Close the command prompt window restart again Windows go into the bios and reactivate the D2D recovery. Now ALT+F10 should launch Acer recovery at the starting of the computer.

Second method : On a nonfunctional Windows system.

For that you must use a Linux distribution (for me Mandriva provided all the tools necessary).

1 Boot on the Mandriva install CD/DVD the boot menu will give you the possibility to repair or to restore the Windows boot loader.
2 If that is not enough launch an installation of linux(this will be an occasion to test this terrible OS) and choose LILO as boot loader(a boot menu that allow you to choose between several operating systems) once finished the installation. Restart your computer in the boot loader menu system you will have at least 2 Windows options the first generally point to PQservice choose it and you will boot directly into acer D2D recovery. __________________

My acer laptop is not starting , i am switching on the start button the green light is comming but the windows are not starting


Today's machines require we make our own or order them. Let's see if Acer has some boot recovery method but first, I'm going to write as if there is no issue about losing files on the machine.

Try the ALT+F10 key

First of all you must be aware that some of the operations to come can cause irreversible change on your hard disk, I recommend to you and I will never make it enough make a backup of your system before launching you in any hazardous operation.

Any damage and/or modification done on your system will be under your whole responsibility. The following procedures were done on a Acer Aspire 5102wlmi and some also functioned on a Dell Inspiron 9400/1705.

As you know, the Acer computers and those of other manufacturers are now delivered with a system of restoration installed in a hidden partition of your hard disk. This system launches out while pressing keys ALT+F10 simultaneously. And sometimes for various reasons this system ceases functioning.

The first cause often comes owing to the fact that function D2D Recovery is disable in the bios (menu principal).

Restart and open a session with an administrator account, you should be able to navigate to the PQservice partition.

Restart your computer in the boot loader menu system you will have at least 2 Windows options the first generally point to PQservice choose it and you will boot directly into acer D2D recovery.

The last solution is the simplest one, just note that during the Linux installation you will have to resize your Windows partition to create a place for a new Linux partition it is the most perilous part because irreversible, therefore take your precautions at this time.

Repair D2D Recovery Acer 4937 MBR failed !!


choose to boot on the vista partition and imidiatly press F8 several times to get the vista boot menu.

choose "repair computer"
choose language,
choose user (and type in password if there is any)
see if there is a option called something like
ACER recovery /factory image / something similar (usually the bottom option)

if there is, click it and start recovery.

PQSERVICE


I'm trying a backup of my Aspire One PQSERVICE to DVD after a near catastrophic partitioning experiment.

So far, I've booted from a Knoppix live CD and I'm trying partimage to copy the contents of the PQSERVICE to an image file on an external usb hard drive. Hopefully I can burn the image to DVD-R. So far, it looks promising.... even if I can't make a DVD-R from the image, I can use partimage to restore the PQSERVICE from the image file if I have to.

Another option would be to boot a knoppix live CD and just copy the contents of PQSERVICE to another disk or partition (not NTFS though). Linux doesn't care about the hidden drive partition settings that Windows uses.

D2d recovery


Send me an e-mail and I will send you the fix! If you can't downloadload it from the below link. I had the same problem. The mbr was replaced, you have to add RTMBR.BIN to the MBR and it will work again. As long as you can get on your desktop and run this bat file you will repair the D2D again. Took me an hour to learn what was wrong, It works 100% though.

 

I have the Aspire 5610Z with the 2GB 533 mhz memory Stock.
