The disks should be bootable so put disk one in and restart the computer looking for "Hit any key to boot to this CD" or something similar to that, that will only display for a few seconds on boot. If you don't get the boot to CD message, then you will need to enter your BIOS setup and set the boot order to CD drive before the Hard Drive.

How to reinstall the Operating system on your computer

Select models, with Microsoft Windows, have the ability to have the Operating System reinstalled from a hidden partition built into the computer.
Note: During the process, all data stored on your computer will be overwritten. This means all your files, such as email and photos, will be erased. Therefore, we recommend making a backup of all personal data before starting the recovery process.
To start the system recovery:
1.Restart the computer.
2.When the Acer 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 or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase the set online from the Acer Recovery Media Order Form..
Note: If your computer does not have an internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
1.Restart the computer.
2.When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
3.Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
4.Close the CD-ROM tray.
5.Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
6.The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
7.When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.

Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.

MY COMPUTER CRASHED GOT MOST OF THE DATA BACK BUT NEED THE START UP DISK


as far as I know Acer does not supply start up cd's but a recovery copy the entire operating system along with original programs are on your hard drive in a hidden partition. To recover the original factory install...
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 In the Recovery settings window, select Reinstall applications/drivers and
click Next.
6 Select the desired driver/application and follow the instructions on screen
to re-install.
Last resort get out your manual or download the manual from Acer.

I cannot locate a recovry disk, can this manually be done from the computers


First of all you did not provide the manufacturer or the model of the laptop but:

If you are absolutely sure there is no recovery disk I would

1) Reinstall the operating system
2) download all drivers for this model on another machine and then put them on a usb stick or cd and reinstall them on the laptop.
3) reinstall all apps including a good virus scan and spyware program.

Make sure you have a good backup of your data before you do this.

Hope this helps.

Having problems with my audio and internet browsers and acer e recovery on my acer laptop " aspire 3610"


1) Reinstall the sound drivers
2) IE, click tools, internet options, connections, LAN settings, auto detect settings
Firefox, tools, options, advanced, network, settings, direct connection to the internet.
~ If both are still not working, trying reinstalling each one.

3) As for the e-recovery error. I have heard that dell and sony vaios can go threw the recovery mode in the bios. Try hitting f10 when the computer is starting up. If you're still having problems with the e-recovery console contact acer and let them know about the problem you are encountering. You can always ask them for the recovery disks.

Restore to factory default


Perform a system recovery:
Acer computer's do not ship with recovery CD's - there is a program that allows you to burn the disks or recover.
3 ways to recover:

1. If in Windows - Start - Programs - Acer empowering technology - Acer E-recovery management -
click on Restore at bottom then "Restore to factory default settings"
2. Or click on Burn disks instead of Restore
3. If unable to boot into Windows then tap Alt/F10 during boot right after Acer splash screen when starting up the computer.
4. This will start the Acer E-recovery program - choose Factory Default Settings and follow instructions.
