Reboot (by pressing Alt Ctrl Del) press F2 frequently after reboot to go to bios setting. Make sure NO flashdisk/ thumbdrive plugged in to usb port. Choose hardrive as firstboot (in the bios setting under the boot tab) save the changes and exit

good luck

How to factory reset acer aspire 5610 alt + f10 not working


There is no way to reset if you cannot get into the Alt + F10 partition, if you can boot into windows ok then it can be factory defaulted by entering the Acer recovery manager, but if not then you will have to keep trying as it can be difficult to get into, i personally find pressing both keys together once every second does the trick and it has to remain constant, when you see the white line across the bottom of the screen stating "windows is loading files" then simply follow on screen instructions.

Remove the hard drive and reseat it back in place, this is enough in some cases in getting it started, no change! have the hardware tested for possible replacement.

I need a acer aspire one happy recovery disk


The Acer Aspire One Netbook has a hidden partition on its hard disk drive which allows recovery of
1. operating system to original factory image (with no recovery disk required)
2. applications (selectable)
3. drivers (selectable)
If the netbook came with pre-installed Windows XP, use Acer eRecovery Management by
1. pressing start button at bottom left corner of Taskbar
2. hover cursor over All Programs then Acer Empowering Technology
3. then click on Acer eRecovery Management and follow subsequent recovery instructions
Alternatively, on powering up, press Alt and F10 together while Acer logo is showing.
If this doesn't work, there is the possibility that the D2D recovery is not enabled for startup.
To enable D2D recovery,
1. press F2 on powering up to get into the startup utility
2. cursor over to the Main tab
3. cursor down to D2D and enable it.
4. save changes when exiting - system will reboot
5. again, press Alt and F10 together while Acer logo is showing.

Want to know how to put my computer back to


you need to load the recovery partition.
To do that use a bootable cd like "ultimate boot cd", start "Smart Boot Manager" in boot manager section under "file system tools" and select the recovery partition to boot (it will be a fat32 partition)

Want to Recovery the complete system on my Acer Aspire 0ne 110. How can i do that?


If you have the original "product recovery" CD-ROMs, re-install Windows from those disks.

Otherwise, is there a "recovery partition" on your computer's hard-drive? If so, then you can reinstall from that partition.

The other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts

Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:

“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”

If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.

If you see this:
“Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”

Then it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on your screen after a short pause..

In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.

The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs.

This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine.
If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.

Aspire 9500 doesn't start - cursor and drive indicator blinks


Generally the bios setting will be set to check the primary Hard disk for the Operating system and then move to the CD/DVD drive . It looks like your system is not finding the hard disk. Thats why its moving on the CD drive and trying to read it.

Possible issues :

1) Hard Drive crash
Solution : Nothing much. You need to replace the hard drive and reinstall the OS.
2) Hard Drive connection issue.
Solution : Open the chasi and try to figure out if the hard disc is properly connected.
3) Corrupted OS or boot file
Solution : Try to repair the OS use the OS cd and run the repair option.
4) Bios setting to treat CD drive as the primary media.
Solution : Use the F10 option in the Bios to change the primary Media.

Rate the Solution accordingly...
