If this is a boot manager is missing on boot it could deal with either a bad Hard drive or system files/registry corruption on boot. An easy way to get your files is use a BDE program that can view your files off your computer without physically loggin into windows. Second way to do it is take your hard drive out and put it into an external enclosure and access your data that way. If you can get into DOS or command try to type in FIXMBR that fixes the master boot record and could sometimes fix the boot issues. After you get your Data I would recommend Running a program called DFT, its free and you can google it and burn it to a cd and boot off of it. This program will test your hard drive and if it passes a full advanced test then you have no hardware problems and should continue to perform an Operating system Install or Full system recovery with factory supplied disks. Hope this helps your question.

Need factory settings aspire 5920


Laptop computers can be wonderful devices, except when the need to troubleshoot arises. Acer laptops are no different. A quick way to fix many problems with an Acer laptop running Windows is to reset it to factory settings. Resetting your Acer laptop to factory settings can eliminate slow operating, registry problems, virus problems, spyware issues and more. And a factory reset of your laptop may reduce the need for a full reinstallation of Windows.

1.Back up all necessary data to an external device such as a disk, flash drive or hard drive

2.Make sure all programs are closed and shut down your Acer laptop by opening your Start menu and selecting "Shut Down" from the options for shutting down and restarting windows.

3.Detach any external hardware such as an external hard drive or printer.

4.Press the Power button to boot your Acer laptop.

5.Press "Alt + F10" on your keyboard when the Acer screen appears at the start of the boot up process. Wait a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

6.Select "Restore System from factory default" in the Acer eRecovery Management window.

7.Click "Next" on the next screen to continue. Click "Next" on the following destination information window. This will pop up a notice telling you that resetting your Acer laptop will erase all data and restore the laptop to its original settings and configuration.

8.Click "OK" in the notice window to proceed with resetting your Acer laptop.

9.Wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

Using Computer Setup to Reset CMOS

To reset CMOS through Computer Setup, you must first access the
Computer Setup Utilities menu.

When the Computer Setup message appears in the lower-right corner
of the screen, press the F10 key. Press Enter to bypass the title
screen, if necessary.

-- If you do not press the F10 key while the message is displayed, you
must turn the computer off, then on again, to access the utility.

A choice of five headings appears in the Computer Setup Utilities
menu: File, Storage, Security, Power, and Advanced.

To reset CMOS to the factory default settings first set time and date,
then use the arrow keys or the Tab key to select File > Set Defaults
and Exit. This resets the soft settings that include boot sequence
order and other factory settings. It will not, however, force hardware
rediscovery.

See the Desktop Management Guide on the Documentation CD for
further instructions on reestablishing passwords. For instructions on
Computer Setup, see the Computer Setup (F10) Utility Guide on the
Documentation CD.

For more details and pictures see the help pdf:

    new_note.jpg Note: You must press before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press after the Windows logo appears on the screen, the Advanced Boot Options menu will not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.
    3 Press the on the keyboard to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press .

    4 Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.

    5 Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and then click OK.

    6 Click Dell Factory Image Restore.

    7 In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.

    8 Click to select the Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition check box.

    The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.

    The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
    If you have tried this and you still can get your system to restore, your may restore partition may be corrupt, you may also have a virus that is preventing you access to the restore files. Run an AV agent and retry your retore. If you still have the system disc that came with your notebook, you should be able to use them to restore the unit back to factory setting.

    My friend gave me an HP G60 and told me that you can log in but it just shows a black screen. After I log in, the whole screen is black, not off, just black with the cursor in the middle. It happens even...


    Your friend probably tried to replace 3 .dll files so that you can use custom themes for whatever OS is installed on the computer. The only way to fix this is to recover the computer and restore to factory settings.

    When you boot the computer hit escape to access the boot menu. See if there is a recovery manager option, and in there, a restore to factory settings option. (Also, hitting F11 works). If you have no option like this (this is essentially booting without a disk) you'll need a copy of your system restore disks that came with the computer.

    Restore to factory settings


    all HP made computers (acer is owned by HP) dont come with backup disks anymore, they require you to make them when you first get the computer, so if you made your restore disksyou should be able to pop them in and boot off of them and it should restore to factory settings, if you didnt make the disks the closest thing you could do is reinstall windows completely.
