I went to format my notebook and when i rebooted, all the comes up is a black screen and crtl+alt+deleat what do i do? I have an acer aspire one d255e


When you reformat a hard drive or any disk you are basically wiping it clean: No more Windows, no more operating system. When the BIOS reboots it looks for the Operating system. Not finding anything that it can start it does nothing Blank screen.
You need to use the recovery media (CD-DVD/Rom s) that shipped with the computer. If you do not have them contact you manufacturer for a set. You may have to pay for them. You can also get Windows from a computer store or from an Internet store.

Recovery disk for xp operating system


if your pc came with disc and you have lost them, contact the pc manufracture and ask for replacement, you may need to pay for shipping or some sort of set fee.

if your computer did not come with recovery disk then do following.
most notebooks/desktops makers try to save money by not making recovery cd anymore, instead they put the recovery partition on the hard drive, which is hidden.
your computer should have come with recovery disc creator tool software from which you can make cd/dvds.

acer has e-recovery management tool built in.
here is your manual...

Need to do sys restore is there a part on the hd this is partitioned off for a complete sys restore and drivers?


Hi,
Sorry there is no hidden recovery partition on the HDD, you should have got a recovery disk with the operating system on and also a driver and utility CD.
Have you got these CD's?

Wish to make a recovery disk


Toshiba usually ships laptops with recovery cd/dvd sets.
If you have captioned recovery set, make sure to make a backup copy.
If this series no has recovery cd/dvd, must be a hidden partition for recovery in the hard drive. For make a recovery disc find the sotware loaded in the laptop (must be there) and make a recovery disc set. Be aware that some manufacturers limit the use of this particular software (you only can make one cd/dvd recovery set).
In the worst scenario that the recovery partition is no present you must load Norton Ghost v14.0 and make a full backup to one external hard drive (USB) in order to recover te operative system, drivers and software in case of disaster.

I hope this help you to solve the problem.

Start up problem


This generally indicates a hard drive failure. You can try to do an operating system repair with the recovery or operating system disc, but most likely you will need to replace the hard drive.

When you see the IBM screen you need to enter the boot menu. On this screen it tells you what to press to get to the boot menu. Place the recovery or operating system disc in the drive, and select the CD drive from the boot menu, then follow the directions. If the repair doesn't work, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. You want to do a full NTFS format, not the quick format, if the hard drive is bad, it won't format.

Toshiba Laptop Malfunction!!! PLEASE HELP!


Hi Sam

First of all sorry to hear your story. But I guess you shouldn't think there is no solution left. I am Toshiba Technical Specialist and I used to work for Toshiba. Toshiba recovery CD is obtainable from Toshiba. you can call their hotline number or you can go to Toshiba authorized dealer. Recovery CD Cost about $39 including shipping. Alternately there is no harm to use different XP Operating System as long its correctly installed. But for the drivers you need to download from http://support.toshiba.com (if you dont use the Recovery CD)

If you need further info please post your request.

Good Luck

try the f10 or f12 recovery option, manufacturers rarely ship the laptops with disks these days, and there should be an option on boot to make the cd's that you need. If not- you will have to contact acer and ask them how to make the recovery/boot cd's
