Acer :: 5633 WLMI Recovery Discs

Jan 6, 2009

I bought the above laptop over a year ago with Vista Home Premium installed, with the usual partition including the recovery software. Did I make my recovery discs? No, I did not and subsequently had a hard drive failure that resulted in the partition being lost too. I managed to put an old copy of XP on which has been fine upto now. I just bought an xbox and want to put vista on my computer so I can use the Windows media centre.
Is there any other way I can get the recovery software without using Acer directly?

Acer :: Recovery Discs- Cant Run Program Or Anything

Dec 16, 2008

when i put my recovery discs in, i cant sem how to use them.

i cant run program or anything, i cant seem how to use them.

for some reason i can only get bluray discs to run on the acer arcade thing and windows media centre(which just turns acer arcade and plays it through that)

iv tried vlc player and windows media player 1 and neither work

also my partitions are 140gb each.

im guessing the other is for storeing stuff and backups.

but how can i make it so i have like 250gb for the first partition and only 30-40gb for the second one?

Acer :: Aspire Travelmate 5730 Running Win Vista - Burned 6 Recovery Discs

Sep 22, 2009

My friend as just bought an Acer Aspire Travelmate 5730 running WinVista.

We set up the laptop yesterday and burned 6 recovery discs in case anything goes wrong with the laptop.

I dont know much about laptops and with my pc ive always had the operating system on a cd so i could fix any problem using the cd.

This laptop as a 250gb HDD when i looked on the computer this HDD appears to have two partitions on it Cdrive that you boot upto then the other drive i think must be a back up drive.

The back up drive seems to take up 50% of the HDD this seems to be a large chunk of the HDD or is there somthing im misunderstanding here.

I also set up a wireless connection for this laptop there's no problem connecting to the internet while'st in the same room as the router but can't connect from a different room this defeats the object of a wireless connection.

Acer Aspire 5742G :: Recovery Discs Not Installing Windows 7 On New SSD Hard Drive

Sep 26, 2014

I have Acer Aspire 5742G notebook and I'm having problems installing the Windows 7 OS on my new SSD hard drive (I bought the SSD because the original hard drive is failing and making blue screens all the time...)For the factory restore, I'm using restore discs. I burned the discs few years back when the laptop insisted me of doing it (by using eRecovery or something, 3 dvds total).
 
The computer tries to install the OS with the dvds (asks to insert a dvd and then press a key). The actual problem is that the installer is just going in loops, restarting and eventually freezing in the end.. Reboot -> Acer logo -> Windows is loading files... -> Starting windows -> Reboot -> etc.That kept going for more than a hour (on the first dvd!) and suddenly it just froze on the "starting windows" screen.. So I had to reboot and star over again.I can still use my old formatted HDD, should I make new set of recovery discs or use an USB drive?

HP Envy 4-1050 Recovery :: Purchased Recovery Discs - Can't Load From External DVD

Oct 31, 2014

thru HP tech support tried to recover my notebook with no success. instructed to purchase recovery dvd's (they don't offer a usb flash option and I have no internal dvd). they told me to find an external drive so I purchased an HP. they told me to:
 
- restart my machine with dvd#1 in place and tap F9 to get to boot device order to USB CD/DVD ROM drive
- windows starts loading files
- I can hear the writer spinning up
- recieve an error "boot disc cannot be found", press any key to continue
- windows starts loading files and atempts to start
- restoration incomplete, hit retry
- cycle repeats
 
HP support said to tap any key as window tries to load - no luck
 
When I get to the HP Recovery Manager - I've tried System Recovery and Minimized Image recovery - same results
 
My question is - can my system load from the external DVD drive if it was never activated (ie drivers) thru windows? Can it be done outside of windows? Seems like it can't read from the disc
 
Can my recovery discs be copied/transferred to a USB flash drive to avoid the external drive completely?

HP Pavilion Dv7-6b50ei Recovery :: Trying To Factory Reset But Recovery Partition / Discs Created Faulty

Jul 8, 2013

I have a pavilion dv7-6b50ei notebook pc bought 2012. It always gives a command prompt pop up which doesn't stay long enough to read. I also felt there's a virus on it which my anti-virus couldn't solve so I tried factory resetting but when I restart and press F11 it gives an error(something like a boot.. is missing). so I tried my recovery discs. Disc 1 of 4 ran fine but disc 2 keeps stopping with an error.

Now the laptop doesn't load as I think the OS has been formatted during the recovery and don't know what to do. I feel disc 2 is bad too because it also gave an error while trying to copy it to a USB pen drive. I have also tried an external dvd and run the hp test on the hard drive; the hard drive passed the test. If I can get a new set of recovery discs, it would solve my problem.

HP Pavilion 15-p189sa Recovery :: Back Up / Recovery Discs

Feb 3, 2015

I have been told that I must pay for a recovery disk when I buy this laptop (HP Pavilion 15-p189sa with Windows 8.1). I have also been told that I must buy it because when attempting to recover my laptop and reconfigure it to manufacture settings, this can only be done once.
 
Once this has been done, it cannot be done more than once unless I have a back-up/recovery disc/USB that PC world are offering.whether it is possible for me to make my own recovery disc/USB  and avoid this 'once-only' limit? Or do I need to buy one from a store?

I just wanted to know that can I get a Recovery Drive as we get it at the time of purchase (Factory Reset).

Acer :: Aspire 5633 And Wireless

Sep 3, 2007

I have recently purchased a Acer Aspire 5633 laptop from Comet, as it was 399 for a fairly decent spec with inbuilt wireless.

But i can't get it to connect to my router what so ever.

I am using a Belkin Wireless G Router F5D7230-4.

I have tried changing the security level from WPA PSK to WPA2 PSK and have tried WEP 64 bit too. But it won't connect at all.

Acer :: 5633, Failed BIOS Update = Dead

May 25, 2009

I have a two year old 5633WLMI (Nvidia graphics) Upgraded the RAM to 4gb only to find that 3gb was being shown in BIOS and Vista 32/64.

Downloaded the latest BIOS update from Acer, (v3.50) updated via Dos - Boot USB pen drive, haflway through updating it turned off, now DEAD, no power/lights/screen - tried silent/forced BIOS update but failed due to no power to board.

I contacted Acer, who were not that helpful to be honest, who told me to contact my local service centre (So Paulo, Brazil) again they were not to helpful. so I'm now sat here with an expensive paperweight.

Fairly sure the MBD has fried, so, How on earth do I get one to me to fit?
every site I've seen requires you to send the old to them but they won't ship to brazil or are incredibily expensive.

HP Pavilion M7-1015dx Recovery :: System Backup Image Vs System Recovery Discs?

Sep 12, 2012

I just purchased a new Pavilion m7-1015dx Laptop and need to make the System Recovery Discs ... (which I realize restores the Laptop to factory default).. btw, I've already created the System Repair Disc.
 
However, I read an article about creating a System Backup Image that allows you to Recovery EVERYTHING if lost, all your installed programs, etc.
 
First Question ::: if I do the System Backup IMAGE ... Do I still need to create the System Recovery disc's (mfg's default) also??
 
The Second Question ::: If I create the System Recovery discs do I still need that Recovery Partition ??
 
I am really really wanting to partition my C: drive ... it's huge plus I hate seeing storage folders intermingled with system folders .. Currently using a Symbol/Character to separate them.
 
As of now, I can't partition the C:drive as all partitions are used.. max is 4 and I've got 4 .... C:drive,   System Partition,   HPTools Partition, and   Recovery Partition.

HP 2000-2B80DX Recovery :: Can't Recover Using Discs

Nov 9, 2014

My mom's laptop failed over a week ago. It wouldn't get past repairing disc errors, even if left alone for 8+ hours. I tried the windows Reset option from the advanced repair menu (Originally came with Windows 8). It started the reset process, but since it was going extremely slow, and I had to work the next day, I left it to go over night. I'm not sure what happened, but it wouldn't even let me get to the advanced options menu anymore. So I ordered the recovery discs from HP.

Those came on Friday, and I have been working with changing different settings in the BIOS, yet I still can't get the notebook to boot from the 1st cd. It says "Push any key to boot from CD/DVD" which I then hit enter, and it just black screens for up to 45 minutes. I'm not ure how the BIOS needs to be set up, and I'm not sure why it would give me that message, then not boot. When i hit F11 during startup, It shows the HP Logo for a while, then black screens for about 20 minutes, then I get an error page saying there is a necessary disc or device missing. I have disconnected and reconnected the hard drive, reseated the RAM.

Sony :: Vaio SRcan't Create Recovery Discs

Feb 18, 2009

One of my users has a Vaio SR and is trying to create recovery discs (DVDs) using Sony's tool. Sony's application fails at 24% every time with the following error:

"The disc could not be created.: Missing source folder or files."

It's running Vista and is pretty new, although they repartitioned the drive recently have installed a lot of additional software and may have uninstalled some Sony software. I'm thinking these could be the cause.

If not, any recommendations for third party software that provide similar functionality (full system backup images to disc)?

HP/Compaq :: HPDV9646em AMD 64bit TL-58 1.9ghz Recovery Discs

Apr 9, 2009

any HPDV range of laptop that are installed with 64bit Vista on the AMD version ?

Secondly does anyone know the cost of a Vista 64bit recovery disc for the AMD processor TL-58 1.9Ghz laptop and if so where to buy it from as I know one exists for the Intel version ?

Ive tried HP website & they weren't very helpful.

Ive also tried a retail version of Vista 64 + 32 bit,but some of the drivers are missing & cant be found,resulting in a half usable laptop.

There has to be an HPDV laptop model that comes with this software pre-installed.

Otherwise HP have seen to it that Im stuck with out being able to upgrade.
