Hello there. There is a really simple solution to your problem. it will cost you a little bit of money but its really reasonable. All you have to do is call acer or go online and request a new set of recovery discs. They will send them to you. Good luck.

Acer aspire 5736Z wont boot on any recovery options


Try starting up in Safe Mode (Console mode) and type in
"SFC /Scannow"Once its done you should be able to do recovery options.
If not, boot from the windows 7 recovery/install CD and choose "Repair".
Go through the recovery process using the CD and it should all be fine!

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

Hi My Acer Netbook cant seem to start windows, i have tried going through all the safe modes, and it wont even get to that! It starts to load windows but then everhthing just goes blank!


Your netbook may have been infected by a virus and has stopped your computer from working.
If you can boot up with the Windows installation CD and do a repair then it may get your computer operating again.
If not you need to boot up with the Windows installation CD, then delete the existing partition, create a new partition and format the hard disk (not a quick format), then complete the Windows installation.
then install the Acer netbook device drivers and your programs.

Download the device drivers from the Acer WEB site. Makesure you select the model of your laptop the drivers you that require thatmatches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link toget to the Acer support: -

I have installed Windows 7 to my Acer Aspire One AOD255 but i want to revert it back to Windows XP and I no longer have the Windows.old folder. How can i downgrade it back?


If it originally came with Windows XP and it has the recovery partition still untouched (assuming the disk hadn't been formated to only one partition), you might recover the system from the hidden recovery partition.

To initiate this process, switch on the laptop and press F10 when the ACER logo appears (some computers need you to press ALT and F10 together, instead of the F10 only. If the Acer Recovery Management starts, you just have to follow the instructions to recover your system.

If nothing happens after pressing F10 or ALT and F10, you will need to get a Windows XP installation CD and a external CD drive to reinstall the whole system.

In this case, first you have to enter setup by pressing F2 at boot time, as soon as the ACER logo appears in the screen. Then, you will need to switch the SATA Mode to IDE from AHCI.



Select: Main -> SATA Mode -> IDE



This is done to allow Window XP to see your SATA.as an IDE disk and install the system.



When you get the external USB CD/DVD driver to use with a Windows XP installer CD, connect it to you laptop, switch it on and press F2 again to enter Setup.



This time, scroll over to the BOOT menu and press Enter. Scroll down to the last option USB CD- Rom and then use the F5 key to move it to the top of the boot list order. Then press Escape and then F10 and finally Enter. The computer will restart and load the CD and you can start the installation of Windows XP.




Hope this info may help you!

Hi, I would suggest that you call the acer tech support hotline for assistance and you could ask them for a another copy of the recovery cd. or try again reformating your system and do a clean install using the windows 7 disc that you already have. hope this helps

How can i reformat my laptop on CD acer aspire 3000


Using Acer eRecovery Management
You can launch Acer eRecovery Management in a number of ways:
Acer eRecovery Management requires a password to activate. The default password is six zeros (0s).
Note: These steps will return the system to the original factory installation including all factory installed drivers and applications.
Back up all data prior to using this procedure.
  1. Plug in the AC adapter and battery.
  2. Turn the system on
  3. Immediately, press ALT on the keyboard and start tapping F10.
    Continue holding ALT and tapping F10 as the unit boots up.
  4. A screen stating "Starting Acer Erecovery" should appear.
    (Release ALT and stop tapping F10 at this point)
  5. There will be 4 options:
    1. Restore system to factory default
    2. Restore system from user backup
    3. Restore system from cd/dvd
    4. Exit
OR
From the Start menu, go to Start > (All) Programs > Empowering Technology > Acer eRecovery Management.
Or try this By clicking on the Empowering Technology icon from your desktop, or pressing the key to launch the Empowering Technology user interface. Select the Acer eRecovery Management icon.

Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.


Your problem could be windows vista isnot installed properly
i assume in the beginning, your laptop come with windows xp.
if you want to go back to windows xp, you can still use alt+f10, as long as you don't delete the recover partition.
Just boot and press Alt+F10, it'll give you recover screen.
