I recovered my laptop using the recovery partition, however it reinstalled the windows xp that i was using formerly in english to chinese and now i can't get past the GUI phase (because it's in chinese). how do i set that to english? thank you!
Re: GUI Phase in Chinese - how to set it to English?
Go to control panal ( you have to use your memory because you cant understand the language ) then click on 地方和语言选择 it will open a new window . Then in the tab look for 格式 then select english or 英语 in 当前格式 option .
If you r having problem to find the program simply open control panal and search for 语言. it will serach the program for you then open it and follow the steps .

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.
After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.
Assuming the Recovery Partition hasn't been disturbed, boot the machine and press ALT + F10 at the same time. You will enter a recovery phase that will give you the option of restoring to factory settings. If the Recovery Partition HAS been either disturbed or wiped out, you will not be able to restore to Factory Settings without a set of disks from Acer.

Were you installing Windows when this first occurred? If so, are you reloading via pressing a key on the keyboard (recovery partition) or with an actual XP disc that matches your version?
I think that I would load via a CD, delete any or all existing partitions including the recovery partition, and do a clean install if that's what you want to do.
If you'd like to recover your system without reinstalling Windows, boot with CD in(borrowed if you don't have one and probably don't have), choose to install (don't go to Recovery Console) accept the license agreement, Windows will search for existing installations, choose to repair Windows.
If it will not boot from CD, you'll have to change setting in BIOS (boot order) so that it will. Instructions should be easy to find to do that. You'll have to hit a key at sometime to boot from CD.
Unfortunately the Recovery partition could not be reacreated manually. But you can recover it by using the Y410 Recovery Disc but that means reinstalling everything and youll end up with windows vista again. You can reinstall XP but do not delete the partition that usually has 10-15GB of space because that is the hidden partition for the recovery. You can call 18774536686. If your computer is out of warranty, it would only cost you 59$ for the recovery disc
