Acer Factory Recovery Disc Won't Work On Acer Aspire 7740
Jul 23, 2012
When I press down f10 and ALT at the same time during boot up from the factory recovery disk when seeing the splash screen, nothing happens and the 'acer laptap just boots from the regular hard drive as usual.
When i turn the computer on i get the screen : setup is starting service. Install Windows. The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install windows, click ok to restart the computer, and then restart the installation. I have contacted acer they tried to help with the ALT and F12. Nothing I have tried works.. They told me to order the recovery discs for $20.00. I did , and they dont work either... I contacted them back, and now they say to send it back to them and for $199.00 plus shipping, they will repair the computer..I do not have the money for that..I have the the system disc, the 3 recovery disc and the language disc , that I just ordered from Acer for $20.00.
I have recently purchased acer netbook d270 and for changing desktop background I have done several registry change. Due to which my netbook starts slowing and sometimes crash. I cant undo my registry change. As I don't know how. But the problem is now I don't want to undo the registry. I want to do factory reset. It doesn't have any recovery management neither alt + f10 at startup shows option for factory reset.
tried to reset my acer aspire one notbook to factory direct setting ,while doing so it failed n wont restart now it asking for windows installation disc ,which i dont have neither does the notebook carry a disc.
everytime i try to factory reset my pc with erecovery managment, it never finishes once it gets to the end, it will say installing sysprep - factory mode, 52/52 and never finishes after that. is there any third party software that can factory restore my system? i noticed windows boots just fine even tho i didn't finish the whole software installation process.
I have an Acer Aspire AX3400 desktop running Windows 7 64bit. I have been having all sorts of problems over several months. The machine, when left unattended, appears to be always "recovering from serious error" with subsequent memory dumps. The machine would not shut down without me having to switch it off. Subsequently the machine would not start up properly. iTunes would not open without a reboot etc etc etc.I decided to backup all my data and restore to factory settings. This has failed/ is incomplete. It hung for several hours at different stages of the process. I keep getting the message "Setting up PC for first use" and does not move on from there
when i press alt+F10 to go to the acer eRecovery management program to do so, i cannot select any options except for the exit option ,One option says "Completely restore system to factory defaults and the other says "Restore Operating system and retain user data".
i recently was using a product called ptedit32. In which i was trying to unhide my pq service to see what was in there. So i changed its boot from hidden to active.(0C was changed to 07) with the other three partitions being 07 as well. This has turned out bad for me now. It seems there is a mbr that is not being recognized. I turn the acer 0ne aspire d255e on and the machine goes to a screen that say can't load windows due to recent hardware or software changes.Status: 0xc0000225It also ask to have the installation disk inserted, of which there is'nt one and the computer doesn't have a dvd/cd drive anyway. It was all on the pq service, which is the hidden partition. I've tried flashing the acer pc as well from usb. and can't get that to work.
I've recently been given a gift of Harry Potter Blu-Ray DVDs, however when I put it in my laptop (which is supposed to have blu-ray installed), nothing happens. I click on "computer" and it just shows the D drive, it doesn't show up on my computer at all. I have no idea what to do.I have a Windows 7 and I installed PowerDVD 11 if that helps.
I have the original discs supplied to me by acer, had to zero out the new HDD because their tech didn't know what they were doing. So now how do I and what is the partition size? acer aspire 5750-completely restore computer to factory default settings on new HDD what is the % of OS partition size (100% is default) but 100gb is minimum for windows (about 40%)
I recently restored my computer to factory settings after getting many blue screen messages. I thought that restoring the laptop to factory settings would help to fix whatever the problem was. After restoring my computer, I get a message saying 'Setup is starting services', and then a pop up saying 'Windows could not complete the installation.To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation.'
I have an ACER One (Model A0531h) netbook. I have now tried several times to recovery it to factory settings using the built in recovery partition. I access this recovery partition by using Alt-f10 during boot. The recovery runs fine up until 99% where it 'sticks'.. for days..The application running the recovery is Acer eRecovery Manager v7.5.15. I have also recovering using the recovery DVD's which I burned. They seem to go through the process but then when I restart the system I get a black screen complaining about missing files. I am then instructed to run recovery...This is driving me crazy. I have also reseated the RAM but dont want to have to strip of the cover to reseat hard drive. I can however hear it running and I have also used Active@boot to reformat the C drive. The recovery partition has not been touched and is not damaged. It runs perfectly up to 99%.
