Get your hands on a set of disks from your manufacture or get a Retail or OEM install disk and do a fresh install.

Acer 6930g recovery


Power computer on. Hold Alt and keep pressing F10 at the Acer logo. You may need a password. If you have used Erecovery before you would have been asked to create a password.
If your first Erecovery the default password is 000000
Select Factory
If this fails, your recovery partition is probably corrupt, and you'll either need to contact Acer for recovery disks or use a Windows 7 installation disk

Laptop came with windows 7 factory installed on it. A friend accidently formatted the hard drive.


Either download an installer disk on to a DVD or partition a harddrive with an installer disk on it. Boot from that disk and restart the computer, it should boot up and ask to install Windows 7.

ERROR 305: 69


Most times the Recovery from cd's don't work. You'll be better served by doing a Reinstall of Windows.

System Recovery (sometimes referred to as Factory Restore) will set your system back to when you first purchased it. It Deletes Everything. Most times the System Recovery does not work unless there is a recovery partition on your hard drive created by the manufacturer. If you are trying to recover from a set of cd's most times it does not work.

Instead of doing a System Recovery it's much easier to just Reinstall Windows. Look on your computer for the Certificate of Authentication (COA) Sticker. It will tell you what operating system is on your computer and it will give you the Product Key Code (a series of 5 letters and numbers) that you will need to activate windows. If you don't have an operating system disk, borrow one from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. Just make sure it is the same as your COA Sticker's operating system or it will never activate. Also make sure you get the COA Product Key Code for the disk you borrow because sometimes the system will ask for the one that is on your system and sometimes it will ask for the one from the installation disk.

I WANT TO RESTORE TO FACTORY SETINGS


If by restore to factory settings you mean reinstall operation system ..you need either a recovery partition or disk ..to use ..or a boot-able disk with the operation system ..
if you have teh recovery partition just press teh key indicated on start for recovery and boot from the partition and proceed for recovery ..or insert the disk ..restart and press any key when asked for to confirm boot from cd ..and proceed with the recovery ..(same way for boot-able disk )
In case it does not boot from disk ..you need to press f12 on start to get to boot menu and select the cd and press enter to force boot from disk ..confirm by any key and go on ..
If you don't have any recovery ..try to borrow or buy or make a boot-able disk ..and install the operation from it ..either by changing boot order in bios or by pressing F12 on start with the disk inside ..select boot from disk and enter ...again press any key to confirm ..and follow instructions ..If you do not know how to do it ..and you are ready to do it anyway...follow one of my services ..and I will guide you by remote assistance to make a disk ..and after that find a way to guide you trough the installing (probably messenger )

Product key e machines model EL 1200


Hi,

You do not need any product key to install Operating System in Emachines as it uses OEM versions of OS. If you have Recovery Disk you can use it.

The recovery disk consist of 2 DVD, the first is the System Disk (this is first disk to insert), once finished loading, it will ask to insert the second CD (Application and Drivers disk), if in case both are not working, then follow the below mentioned steps:

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

You can also place order for a set of Recovery disk by calling Acer Technical support at 1 800 816 2237

Thanks and regards,

Recently, I encountered a problem with my Asus EEE PC. I used the Recovery File within the Hard Disk by pressing F9 on the boot process, and I successfully restored my EEE PC to factory default. Now,...


Yes they should be the same. You should be able to reset the laptop to factory defaults using the provided recovery disk just the the system on your HDD. The reason they have both is because the HDD is much faster than an CD. The HDD recovery system also keeps track of required OS updates and will keep those so you don't have to go through hours of system updates in most cases.
