Will not start up after system recovery done with disks.

I was having some issues with my m275 so I asked around and people told me to use my system recovery disk that came with my m275. I did the system restore. After restore was done...system reboot. The screen with "F2" and Bios settings came up and after that then went blank! Nothing! I turned off the laptop and started back up then I get the whole windows didn't shut down properly. I try to start up in safe mode but does pretty much that same thing. I have an acer aspire 1350. After setting up service pack 2 for windows xp, the laptop refused to start up resulting in a continuous restart process.
I used the recovery cds but the problem remains.

Recovery disk does not recognize machine

I don't know what you mean by recognizing ..but i suppose it does not start the recovery process..and this may have a few causes..
The first thing to check is if the disk is having an operation system on it or it is just the drivers and factory programs recovery ..In this case you need a boot-able disk with the operation system on it ..and use the recovery disk after installing the system first .
Another thing may be just a boot issue ..If your computer does not have the boot from cd enabled ..this may be an issue my advice is to press f2 on stat and go to BIOS settings ..and look for boot sequence and select the cd /dvd drive as first boot device ..and hard disk the second..and save the changes by pressing F10 ..and restart ..This will make the disk to boot like it should if it has the correct information on it ..It will ask to press any key for confirmation of the disk boot ...and go with the installing .
there is a 3rd possibility in which you have to load the ahci driver for the system first ..cause the recovery disk loads the files but do not see a boot disk ..cause the hard disk by default is set to work on the ahci function of the sata bus..and if you do not load a 3rd party driver for the ahci does not see the hdd..In this case load the driver from a floppy or from a usb ..and go on with the process or just go to bios ..and look for the ahci feature in the advanced settings or in teh devices..and disable it and let it run sata as ide or ide compatible settings with F10 and restart ..It will never ask for driver again and will load the recovery if the disk is functional .
i hope this will help ..cause I covered almost all possibilities but a faulty disk in which case you just have to get a boot-able disk with the operation system you use and reinstall it clean ..and run the drivers after doing it ..and install all programs needed manually .
Please rate my answer if it helps ..and thank you for using our site !..
have a nice day !

At start up, screen does not get psat the Toshiba screen


This radical resetting of the computer is called a system recovery (not a system restore) This will put your computer back to factory settings but you will lose any files on your Hard Drive like pictures, music and word documents.

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS :Some older computers and ALL Toshiba laptops come with a system restore disk. Simply place the disk in the CD tray and hit ENTER, if that does not work, power the computer off and on with the disk in the tray, wait for the special system recovery screen to appear, (be patient)

If you were not issued with a disk, then the following is for you.
Each computer manufacturer has a special key you have to hit WHEN YOU POWER ON the computer.

Toshiba laptop is F12

Here is the trick- power the computer off, and then power it back on and start tapping the F12 key until a screen pops up saying "DO YOU WANT TO DO A SYSTEM RESTORE" OR "WELCOME TO SYSTEM RECOVERY MANAGER" Once you see something appear on the screen, stop tapping and just follow the instructions. Some of the older computers may ask you for the restore disks so have those ready. Most newer computers do not need restore discs. The whole system restore could take 2 or 3 hours. When done, reboot your computer and it should be all new and speedy again.

Down loaded msn explorer 8 pc will not start up TMGR missing

The "TMGR" is a Windows Operating System component file.
This error might occur if the TMGR file is corrupted or missing.
However, as this is a Operating System Component file, you may resolve the issue by performing the below steps.
First, you may try performing the SFC Scan.
Performing the SFC Scan will automatically fix any damaged files or any errors in the Registry.
Steps to initiate the SFC Scan:
1) Open the RUN command window.
2) In the RUN command window, type "cmd" and press Enter.
3) In the Command prompt, type cd
4) Then. type cd Windows and press Enter.
5) Then type sfc /scannow and press Enter.
6) This will start the SFC Scan process.
The Computer might also ask for the Windows Operating System Disc.
Peforming the SFC Scan should resolve the issue with the TMGR file.
If the issue still persists, initiate the Disc checking process.

For Windows Vista:

My pavillion dv6700 starts up then goes black

Hi, Sorry to hear about this. I presume you can't log in in "Safe mode" (pressing the key "F8" while booting) and then to a system restore (available under Accessories -> System tools -> System restore) Nor you have the Windows Recovery Console available to you , nor an original Microsoft Windows CD/DVD (not a HP one) to use to try to do a soft recovery. If I'm correct on the points above, then sadly at this stage it seems you have a fundamental issue with your machine. I recommend that you take out the recovery disks you got with your machine. Inserting the main recovery disk and then rebooting the PC will launch a recovery console by HP. This will make a last attempt to fix your PC or, if all fails, return your PC to the "brand new state". Bare in mind that going to the full restore option will delete ALL the files currently your PC.. hence leaving it, just as the day your bough it. If you don;t have a back up of all your files, you'll need either: Create a boot disk that allows you to connect an external hard drive to copy all your data or ask a local mate or PC shop to extract your drive and copy teh data before you do a full recovery.
Once again, sorry to hear about your issue but I'm sure worst case, you'll succeed at getting your machine working again (even if it means a factory reset).

At this point, you can try to clean your disk # 4 and see what happen,
or try to make a copy of disk # 4 (if you can copy the disk) and try again.


1) Contact your customer support and ask for a new set of disks.(or only # 4)


2) Boot your computer with another OS disk (win XP)


3) Boot your computer with some utility disk

Recovery For ACER 3660

If you have recovery disk try starting them from Windows, or start computer with disk inside and chose 'boot from cd'.
After booting from recovery disc chose complete recovery.
Save a backup of your data, as complete recovery may delete the data.
If recovery disk does not work you will have to install Windows from a generic Windows setup disk, in this case refer to manual for how to.

Here is the user manual, check from page 82
