Where would I get a system recovery disk for my aspire 4315-2490


hi ola.
(this is what i found to try and help you out.but make sure you read all of it before you try it,and you do so at your own risk).
when you first power the computer on and you see the Acer splash screen. hold ALT and tap F10 at the same time. it should say either "windows is loading files" or "starting acer recovery" it will bring you to a screen that asks you "how do you want to restore?" choose :"restore to factory default" and click continue. it will start automatically for you and take about 20-30 minutes. make sure the NB stays plugged in the entire process and you will be back to when you first bought it.


or go to this link and see if you find anything to help you out.

Acer travelmate 4202 recovery disc


You can, if available, purchase a Recovery disk from Acer. That said, if you have a Recovery Partition, By rebooting and using the restore/recovery ALT+ F-10 keys. On page 59 : http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/manuals/acer/0000/userguides/TM4200-ENG-OLM_1207.pdf and this may be useful: http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=2&modelId=774 IF you are doing a Factory recovery on a XP Machine, I would put on a pot of coffee. I recently did the same, with hundreds of Windows and Computer manufacturer's update it took 36 hours stright. Good Luck.

Full system restore of Acer TravelMate 2310


If you have th eOperating system disk, you can re-install from scratch - but that will lose your documents - so you should back them up to DVD.

Then install all the drivers you need from the Acer site found here,

If this helped you then please help me and vote kindly, thank you.
