Where to find the reset button on my packard bell pc hard drive




Click on the "Start" button and input "Recovery" into the search box. Click on "Recovery Manager."


Click on the "Advanced Options" button when the Windows recovery manager appears. Choose the "System Recovery" option from the list and click on "Next."

Click "No" to decline using the Microsoft system restore and click "Next." Note that HP computers have their own restore system.

Click on "Back up your files first (recommended)." Click on "Next." Follow the instructions given to you by the recovery manager for backing up your files.

This is your opportunity to back up any important or original files before you reset the HP computer to its original settings.

Save these files to removable storage devices such as DVD disks, CD disks, alternative hard drives (that you are not performing a system reset on) or flash drives.

Click on "Next" when the screen reads "Recover without backing up your files." Note that after you proceed with this step, you will lose any and all information on your Hard Drive that you did not back up.

Restart your computer after it has finished the recovery procedure. Visit the HP Support and drivers website and click on the option that says "Download drivers and software (and firmware)." Enter your computer model number (find this on the front of your tower) and press "Enter."

Download the most recent drivers and save them on your desktop. Double-click the driver package and follow the on-screen instructions to install the drivers.

Insert your removable storage device that contains the files that you backed up. Copy the files to the appropriate places on your hard drive.

hope this helps

Trying to get rid of error oxa0000003


1. Start with the computer off.
2. Power on the unit, this should cause the Acer POST screen to appear.
3. During the Acer POST screen, press and hold the Alt key on your keyboard, and tap the F10 key on your keyboard.
4.If timed correctly, this should cause the unit to go to a black screen that says "Windows is loading files...".
5. After the "Windows is loading files" screen you should be in Acer e-recovery management. At this point follow the on-screen instructions to restore the unit to factory defaults.

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

Remove the hard drive before you take it in for repairs. Do not touch the circuit board on the hard drive. Put it in a clean, dry place away from children or pets until you get the computer back, then reinstall it.

Hopefully, the hard drive is easy to get at through a removable panel (see your owner's manual). If not, when you take it in, ask the service tech to take it out right away and give it to you in an anti-static bag. Take it back with you when you go back to pick up the repaired netbook so it can be reinstalled. The cost for this should be covered in the warranty.

I want to restore my Acer Aspire M1100 desktop computer back to factory settings. I have the disks from Acer, one is a System Disk and one is a Recovery Disk. Is there any way to restore/reinstall Vista...


Hello,

If you used the restore disk on your computer it will erase all files, and all your programs. the restore Factory settings means "ALL" settings the time you created the CD for the restore.

If you have an individual Vista Installer CD with the Serial you can use it and use restore option.

Thank you for using Fixya
Hope this helps.

How do i get rid of corrupt file - WinServeAv


It is not a good thing to "get rid of " corrupt files, you need to fix it and get rid of the message! : )

Not knowing what the file does, Av suggests something with Audio or Audio Visual. Have you checked Device Manager to see if any hardware is showing a problem with drivers etc? If there is a problem with drivers or hardware you can try reinstalling first the drivers and then the software that came with the unit. To access Device Manager RIGHT click My Computer and select Properties then click on Device Manager. Problems show up as a yellow exclamation mark. RIGHT click any with the Yellow Exclamation mark and see if the problem is shown (you can select Update Driver here as well.

If this doesn't work,another try would be to download Norton Systemworks from the Symantec site, Located here:

http://shop.symantecstore.com/servlet/ControllerServlet?Action=DisplayPage&Env=BASE&Locale=en_US&SiteID=symnahho&id=ProductDetailsTrialPage&productID=51012100

Install it and run Utilities - Find and Fix Problems - WinDoctor.

This will find all your broken links, missing shortcuts, registry errors etc and may fix your problem. It's kinda like tuning and servicing your car, all the bits work smoothly together again.

Note all Operating Systems gradually create broken links to files that are required by programs (a single program may be made up of hundreds of individual files - each one accessed through a link).

Just uninstall NortonSystemworks after you have finished with it (it will only work for 14 days anyway without a key).

Good luck.

Acer e lock activated??????????????


I have a working workaround solution to this problem - save yourself 100usd (what acer requests from the unlocking) and press the ask me button to send me the free(FREE POST TO FORUM) request, Il give you the workaround, will take less than 10 minutes to solve the problem, really not worth it to pay 100usd for something this silly.

Il possibly soon make a video tutorial on how its done but for now, send me a request and il tell you how to get rid of the problem.
