I solved this problem!!! I tried booting from CD/DVD at first but it does not work!!!

Solution:
I went to BIOS, to do that press F2 on opening screen. Then when inside the BIOS, you have to ENABLE Boot Menu Screen!!! Then SAVE and EXIT. On Restart, you can now see F12(not sure if F12 But you will see in screen) to select Boot Option.Then you can select your Hardrive. NOTE: For some weird Reason there is NO CD/DVD on the Boot Option. I am sure thats why CD Boot disk do not work!!! God bless!!!!

You might be able to boot from a Windows Vista DVD-ROM Disc and perform a System Restore back to a time when it was working and MAYBE it might work. I am not going to guarantee anything however.

Those discs will run you about 33.00

To start the systemrecovery:
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Computer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available orfails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. Ifyou do not have a set of Recovery Media, you may purchase the set onlinefrom the manufacturer.

Received a blue crash screen, Alt,F10 for erecovery, showed copying files, then tried to reboot and shut down without completing reboot. Now when try to start, showes windows small window and moving dots...


You can use a torrent site like isoHUNT, to download a copy of the Acer OEM vista disc, this is a little illegal, but if you use your own Windows key from your COA sticker, it should register and activate ok.
You may have to download your drivers seperatly from from ACER.
You will need a torrent client like UTorrent, and the download could take a day or so

How do I download a recovery disk free for an acer aspire 5920?


You most likely can't. OEM system builders...HP, Acer, Lenov, DELL usually don't provide a recovery disk with their laptops so they can charge you later when you need it. This is done to keep their costs down and increase profit.

Most cases, when you got your new laptop, there were instructions to "Create Recovery discs". But 99% of most users never do.

Result: you will need to call Acer and order the recovery discs or see if anyone has them on ebay/craigslist cheaper. Acer is best bet, so you don't end up with wrong or non-working discs and prolong your problem. Should be about $25-50 including shipping.

Anyone can help me? i need the driver for Acer Aspire 3004WLCi since i just got infected with virus and i have to format my notebook. thx


There is a hidden partition on the hard drive that will restore the computer without cds so you won't have to worry about drivers. I'm not sure which one it is so try these during the boot up screen:

F10

FN+F10

Ctrl + F10

Alt+ F10


One of those will boot you into a recovery menu.

Let me know what happens.

Rebooting


Unfortunately you need the discs. Now days a backup of recovery software is usually located on a hidden partition of the hard disk that you need to burn to a cd/dvd before you can use it. If there is none on your hard disk and your computer is still in warranty, contact acer and they should mail you out a copy for free you just pay shipping and handling fees. If your computer is out of warranty they will still send them but you will have to pay full price for them.
