I tried to do a system recovery, and it started to work, the first CD worked but the second one did not work, I cleaned it, then it worked, know the third disc will not work, I ordered new CD's from Acer and none of them work. When I put in the third disc it says "cannot find X:\IMAGES\70EA3000.HDD, 57231MB" and occasionally it will have a decompressions error. what can i do?

Have you tried booting to the system recovery again and starting it over? Otherwise you may need to wipe it clean and start from scratch. Download a program like Darik's boot an dnuke to wipe the hard drive clean (this will destroy all data on the hard drive, including system recovery data if that is saved on the hard drive instead of CD's.) Then try the system recovery again (if it's on CD's)
Starting a Recovery
Turn on the computer and immediately begin pressing the F10
key repeatedly until a Recovery Screen appears.
You can also start a recovery from recovery discs, or from Windows. For more information refer to

If your computer stops responding after using the recovery program, do the following:
the computer appears to have stopped responding after restarting from a
recovery, please wait, it may take several hours or longer to complete
the initial Windows XP setup process, especially if a recovery was run
from a recovery disc set sent by HP. A Standard recovery may also take
longer, depending on how many files are stored in user accounts (like in
Exit the stalled recovery process by pressing the POWER
button on the PC until the power turns off, this takes approximately five seconds.
recovering, disconnect personal media drives, printers, scanners,
cameras, camera-type memory cards, and other devices that did not
originally come with the PC.
If you are using recovery discs, be aware of the following items:
you created the recovery discs using Recovery CD Creator, be sure to
run the recovery from the same drive that you used to create the
the discs with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth wetted with distilled
water. Wipe from the center of the disc to the outside edge. You may
also use disc cleaning kits or disc restoration kits from your local
computer store. These kits produce better results than using cloth and
You may also use available CD/DVD Drive cleaning kits to clean the laser reading lens of the CD or DVD drive.
Try running a full system recovery again from the hard drive by turning the on the computer and pressing the F10
key until a Recovery Screen appears. This performs the recovery from the hard drive.
Do you have the OEM Windows CD with Key Code numbers? If yes and there is nothing on the hard drive you want to save you could try a clean install. Go to set-up and make CD-ROM drive the first boot device and install a new OS. Sometimes with Windows this is the easiest thing to do. I see this recovery/restore stuff leaves a lot to be desired. In other words, it doesn't seem to work half the time.
I had the same problem with the recovery cd getting to 83% and giving me the 0x4001100200001005 error. I did 2 things. I cleaned the disk it was erroring on and also removed the ethernet cable from the adapter. I have been working for 4 days on this and parsing the internet for answers. Finally it worked. I don't know if it was the cleaning of the disk...which did not look dirty, or the unplugging the network cable.
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.
