Question about Acer Aspire 5720-6661 Notebook PC

Hi, I'm trying to do a full factory restore on a Acer Aspire 5720 with Windows XP but it keeps asking for a restore disk. We were sold this laptop brand new with no disks and I can't find any image on the actual computer.

That stinks most newer laptops don't come with disks at all, and ask you to burn your recovery disks when you first turn on your computer. If your having problems that seem to leave you no option but to do a restore maybe you can get individualized help at bleepingcomputer.com there is a 14 day wait unless it's a more simple problem. Just fallow the instructions on there site and post an accurate description of your problem along with only the scans or information they tell you in the instructions to post in the initial post.

Hi there,
Have you looked in My Computer?If you have a recovery partisan on your C drive it will be there.There is also Linx and if you write to them they will send a free disk to you.Kinda reminds me of Apple.Thanks for choosing FixYa.com and good luck!

How can i make factory setting for Aspire 5610 without recovery disc and/or with recovery disc


Hi,

You do not have to make factory setting, infact 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 (try both), it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

Thanks and regards,

Hi i have an acer aspire 5720 but the login screen won't come on


Hi.
The Acer Aspire 7520 is a very poorly desiged laptop i also have one which is broken atm.

The best thing you could do is to Refomat and install a fresh copy of windows

You shoud have two recovery disk that you should have burned as soon as you got the laptop.

Put Disk 1/2 into the drive.
Boot up your computer and press ATL+F10 atleast three times.
-Follow the on-scree
n instructions and soon you will be asked to put in the disk 2/2.

At the final phase you will be asked to put in disk 1/2 again...Wait awhile untill everything is install and finished loading and your computer will restart with Facory Defualt Settings.

Please Rate. Thanks

ACER Aspire 5720


Hi All,

We are a workshop in Spain & I have had several problems with "Down grading" to XP. There is essentially one problem which causes an issue with the XP installation & that is if the the BIOS has a "Fixed" sata configuration. By that I mean you cannot change it to some sort of IDE or P-ATA (Symantics). Our current problems are with an Acer 5720 & an HP Pavilion DV9700. The Acer solution is exactly as "kraken3000" had mentioned before:
1. On POST (Powerup). enter BIOS by pressing F2
2. Tab along to the second option "Main"
3. Goto last option "SATA mode" & press enter.
4. From the small selection display select "IDE mode"
5. Save & exit the BIOS. This will then set the SATA mode for XP to be recognise.

DONOT set this back to SATA Mode after you install the XP as it will NOT boot. This setting must be kept untill you "Upgrade" (If ever) to Vista. The HP is another story...

Visit the Acer Panam site & download & install the XP drivers & your good to go...

I hope that this was of help...& good luck folks
