Computer in perpetual turn on mode, can't get past the windows icon.


in extreme conditions you can use live widows which will be loaded in RAM not hard disk and on a few seconds U can backup your files. but before trying that choose the safe mode from the list you faced if it works, go to start menu- all programs-accessories- system tools- restore in order to restore to previous healthy condition. the other option is to booting the windows cd and follow the same pattern of new installation but when you face the screen containing windows which are already installed on your computer, choose repair.

Format acer n214


Format? Format is for a hard drive, so what is it that you want to do? Are you trying to Format your hard drive so nothing is on it. Formatting a drive wipes out everything, the drive is completely empty until you put something on it.

Maybe you are talking about doing a System Restore which will set you computer back to a particular date and time before you started having problems. System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was install after the restore point date and time you selected). To get to System Restore Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a restore point (date and time before you started having problems).

Maybe you are talking about System Recovery. System Recovery sets your system back to when you first purchased it from the store. It deletes everything. All your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and any program you installed after you purchased it will be gone. Normally to get to System Recovery you will have to hit one of the F1 thru F12 keys repeatedly when you press the power button. Your manual will tell you the exact key to hit. Sometimes the Recovery will be listed on the program list. Click Start/Programs/ and look for System Recovery, it might be inside of one of the Acer Folders in the program list. Hopefully there is a Recovery Partition on your hard drive called Recovery. Click Start/My Computer and look to see if you see a Recovery drive listed. Sometimes the drive is hidden so you can't see it. If the drive is not present you will need a set of Recovery Disks you created or the manufacturer gave you.

Maybe you are talking about Reinstalling Windows. If you do a Clean or Complete Install it will format the drive and delete everything before installing windows. There are ways to do a Repair Install that will save all your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs. You will need an Operating System Disk to perform a windows installation. It has to be the exact operating system as that which is on your Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker on the computer somewhere. If it says Windows XP Professional you cannot use a Windows XP Home disk to do the install and vice versa.

Aspire will not recover


LOL, not surprising, I've seen Recoverys not work lots of times. Your only option now is to reinstall windows. You can try doing a Repair Install which will save your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs. But since you were trying to do a Recovery which wipes out everything, you might as well do a Fresh Install which wipes out everything.

Hi.

With that desktop computer being new it should have a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive that allows you to perform a factory restore which will take it to how it was when you took it out the box.

To access the recovery partition on your Acer computer for recovery, follow the steps listed below.

1. Power on the computer
2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the Alt key and press the F10 key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery.
3. Once eRecovery has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings
4. Click OK to continue
5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore a fully functional factory image which should take approximately 10 minutes.
6. Once eRecovery has run, press OK to reboot the computer.



Hope this helps!!!




Regards.

It will be an option noted on the screen when your computers starts up.

Where you see press F2/F12/DEL etc for bios settings there is normally another option for System restore or similar if that option is not there, you will need to do a recovery from the system disks that came with your machine.

You might be able to get a recovery CD from the manufacturer instead of where you bought the computer. For E-Machines you can go to https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=eMachines and enter the serial number of your unit to get information on ordering recovery media. The recovery cd will have a factory image of the hard drive on it eliminating the need for an actual Vista CD.

Click: Start
Click: All Programs
Click: Accessories
Click: System Tools
Click: System Restore

Pick a "restore-point" that was taken _before_ the update was applied,
and restore your system to that previous date/time.

OR ....

Look under "All Programs" for a utility that will help you burn CD/DVD(s) to create a "Recovery Disk" set. Burn more CD/DVD(s) with all your "data" files (or copy all your data-files to an external hard-drive). Then, boot from the "Recovery Disk", to begin the process of restoring the "factory" settings.

I cannot find my recovery /reinstallation disc for emachine 5260


DO NOT click on that Format option. It will wipe the entire recovery partition.

First look at all your programs to see if there is a recovery program. (Not System Restore.) It would probably be located in Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools.

If you do not see one, do a Restart on the computer and watch for a brief message as it begins to boot up. It may say something like "Press Delete for Setup. Press F10 for Recovery." It could be any "F" key, but you only have a few seconds to select it. If you miss the first time just wait and reboot again.

Normally you will have the option to do a full recovery (Everything wiped and restored as if you just purchased it.) or a selective recovery which will save your documents. If you don't have important files or if you can back them up on a flash drive, it would be better to do a full recovery.

Comment back if you are still having trouble.

My computer is truning off


It sounds like you definitley have malware (some type of viruse and or trojans) I would perform a system recovery if i was you which this will delete everything and start Windows from the beginning when you first purchased the computer. You may do this by
turning off the computer all the way. turn it back on and immediately start tapping either F11 or F10 until it appears with System Recovery then make sure to do the system recovery process. It should take about 25-30 minutes and your computer should run fine, Although yes you will have to put your personal items back on the computer (like pictures,documents, etc) but your computer should run fine... Let me know how it goes and if there is anything else I can do to help you out.
