Acer :: Aspire One 110 Recovery

Dec 14, 2009

I have recently got an Acer Aspire One 110 Windows XP Version with 1GB ram for my girlfriend as an xmas present. Anyway while I was setting everything up for her i.e. firefox & msn etc. I spotted in the programs that there was nothing to do with Acer at all i.e. erecovery management, and the only thing was the Acer PDF manual. I then proceeded to look in disk management (right click my computer > manage) and to my shock there was no PQSERVICE or any sort of a recovery partition! The only partition was the main Windows partition! I thought maybe it was because the SSD hard disk is only 8GB. I decided to take a look at the 2 disk that I got supplied as I thought that these were the only possibe way to restore if you had an external disk drive. The 2 disk were labeled System CD & Windows XP Home Edition SP3, The System CD disk was 500MB in size and the Windows one was 2.54GB! That must be the recovery DVD then.

I decided to try and boot into the disks on my other laptop and the SystemCD disk did load up and it loaded the eRecovery program but the option to recovery was greyed out (fair enough as it was a different laptop) I then decided to boot the 2.54GB Windows disk and the laptop would not recognise it at all! I decided to look at the contents of the 2.54GB Windows disk manually through windows and all that it has it about 20 .SWM files and some other files but the only application I could see was a program called "ImageX" I then manually looked at the contents of the SystemCD disk and there was only various folders and files but no clickable applications. I am now a bit confused by these 2 disks, how am I supposed to do a full restore the aspire one now incase anything goes wrong?? Could anyone help me out with how am I supposed to these 2 disk or am I supposed to create another recovery disk using these 2 original disks? Or will these 2 disk boot up fine using an external disk drive with the aspire one?

Acer :: Aspire 3004WLMI Recovery

Dec 8, 2008

I have been browsing various forums for an answer to my problem.

Recently I must have picked up some sort of virus and my laptop went weird so I rebooted it using F10. Tried to diagnose in safe mode and also tried to recofigure back to last known good configuration to no avail. So in desperation I started the recovery process.

Disk 1 -System disk loaded with no problem. Then I followed this with the Recovery CD's that came with the laptop. When the 3rd disk was loaded a message saying cannot open or create file came up. It just left me no option but to click OK

Now I can't even boot up. When I switch on I get the ACER logo and F2 to enter BIOS, then I get a black screen and it tells me that the NTLDR is missing press any key. every time a key is pressed the message repeats.

Acer Aspire 551 :: I / O Error With Recovery

Sep 5, 2014

During restore using Acer recovery disks for this Acer aspire 551, the recovery stalls at the final step where the wim file is written to the c: drive.  It gives me an i/o error.

I suspect that the disk is functional because I have run the cmd.exe program from the x:drive and then run both scndsk.exe and scndsk.exe /F to fix any errors.  No errors were detected.

However, any fix for this error that I have encountered suggests replacing the hardrive. This seems to be inappropriate, in this case.

I should also say that I have used dos commands to copy a file from the system32 directory to the c: drive successfully suggesting that there is no problem with writing to the disk.

Lastly, the cd rom hardware must be working or the disks would not be successfully read to the final stage.  How this can be an i/o error eludes me.

Acer :: Aspire 5315 Recovery Failed

Mar 1, 2009

Problem-- When you Turn on my acer 5315 laptop a blank black screen comes up after the acer logo appears. If you press any key a loud beep noice sounds.

Solutions I have Tried-- Well i started with using the preloaded restore to factory defults and I got an error message at about 99 percent. The error was- Restore Failed- Reason oxd0000001d - or close to that. I figured maybe the backup partiton was screwed up so I pulled out the old recovery cd's I purchased from acer. The same thing showed up. I then figured i should call acer. I called and they told me to use the acer post disk formatter. I tried that and it still did not help the problem. I have no where else to turn so thougt maybe you guys could help.

By the way This is some of my system specs--

Acer 5315-
Hitachi 80GB hard drive-
Windows Vista Basic

Acer :: Aspire 5515 Recovery/backup

Feb 7, 2009

I bought the Walmart special and am actually happy with it. I didn't have much money to spend and after removing all the crapplications, installing AVG etc... it's running well. If I had XP to install I would have done it from the start but I'll live. I'm even managing to run WoW with no issues after tweaking in game specs and playing in the Catalyst Control Center.

Now...my problem. I uninstalled all the Acer utilities and now eRecovery will not work for me. I'd like to back up the OS and drivers so if need be I can restore to factory or at least close. Can I do this with NTI Backup Now? or will that just back up folders and files? If not what can I use to make restore discs.

Acer :: Recovery Disk Aspire 5600

Feb 3, 2010

I was given a broken 5600 - if I could fix it, it was mine. I fixed the electrical fault, but also foolishly deleted the hidden partition 1, which apparently held the restore image. The donor doesn't have the recovery CD, and I now need to do a full recovery. The drivers on the Acer site don't quite do the trick, and there's nothing I can find on the site to buy a new recovery disk.

Acer :: Aspire 3860 BIOS Recovery

Dec 8, 2008

I flashed the BIOS using the windows software beyond my better judgement and the install crashed. I waited 30 minutes and the system never started to flash again. I have tried a few ideas to get the BIOS to restore. I tried the FN-ESC method and the usb-Floppy tries to install the system but i am still not able to get the OLD BIOS restore.

I have the BIOS backed up on the systems hard drive but I am gonna have to remove the drive and get the backup BIOS and try to install it on the recovery disc. What are some ways to restore the BIOS the system is also out of warrenty and I payed acer support to tell me that are not able to help me.

Acer :: Aspire 5000 Series- Different Recovery

May 21, 2009

I had an Acer Aspire in the 5000 series. A drink got spilled on the keyboard and I cut the power to the unit immediately. The motherboard was fried anyway, but the hard drive was salvageable. I had it put in a USB case to access the data as an external hard drive when I needed it. I had trouble with permissions on some folders and documents at times, but I was generally able to access what I needed.

A couple of weeks ago I opened a folder on the external hard drive that I hadn't been to since I replaced my notebook. I forgot what happened at the time, but I was called out of the office. Since then, I'm unable to read the USB hard drive at all. I get an error message that says "E Drive Not Accessible. Folder or Directory is Corrupt & Can Not Be Accessed". Every recovery solution I've found is for an internal hard drive. Will I need to try to put it in my current Aspire 6920 to do a directory repair/recovery? Is there a way to recover it externally without sending it out to a data recovery service?

Acer Aspire V3-771 :: Cannot Get Into BIOS To Rebuild From Recovery DVD

Feb 2, 2015

My Windows 8 install got corrupted and will not boot. So I just want to get the laptop to boot onto the recovery DVD or any DVD so I can rebuild it.
 
No matter how hard I press F2 nothing happens and I keep getting "No Bootable Device, Hit any key." This just takes me into an empty boot menu! I have tried with what I know to be bootable CD/DVD in the internal and have used external DVD drives.

Acer :: Aspire 8930G - After It Boots It Will Go To The Recovery Straight Away

Nov 3, 2009

I hope to find an answer here, I have an Acer Aspire 8930G. It came with Windows Vista but I bought Windows 7. I installed it and it runs fine up to the last boot (right after the accountname and internetconnection questions) After it boots it will go to the recovery straigt away. I called Acer and the guy was a man of few words, he basically just told me it couldn't be installed unless it was a Windows 7 bought from Acer. Is this really the case that Acer is like all those horrible telecomcompanies with their customized firmwares?

Acer :: Aspire 5536G Can't Make Recovery Disks

Jul 1, 2009

I just purchased this model from my local Best Buy, and after having valiantly turned down their $150 set-up fee, I decided to try my hand at making the recover disks myself. Obviously, I failed miserably.

Here's my problem: using the eRecovery program on the laptop, I've tried burning a default factory disk using several types of CD's and DVD's but each time, the program rejects my disks and asks for a blank one. The error code that comes up is Error 0x205.

I've looked at the Acer Europe website, but I have not come to any conclusion as to how to fix this problem. My software seems to be up to date but could it be a faulty optical drive?

Acer Aspire V5 :: Keep Freezing Up - Cannot Access Recovery Partition

Dec 10, 2014

My Aspire V5-552PG-X809 has frozen 5 times in the last two days. Why is this happening, and how do I stop it. I just got it back from being serviced about two weeks ago, and did a fresh install of windows recently.
 
Here's the timeline for my system: About 6 weeks ago the system froze and needed a hard restart. Upon restarting, nothing would load. I couldn't access the recovery partition, and repair media did nothing.  I sent it back to ACER for repair, and they replaced the HDD. It ran fine for about two weeks, but I was not paying attention during setup and put in the wrong username (This normally wouldn't be an issue, except it changed the name of the user directory and was a hassle for some R code that I had written). I reinstalled windows and fixed the directory issue about two days ago. Since that time I have had about 5 system freezes requiring hard restarts, and every time I'm paranoid that it will kill my HDD again.

Acer Aspire V5 :: Unable To Restore From Recovery Disk

Sep 23, 2014

I had to buy the recovery disk for my Aspire V5, when I start I change the bios to UEFI with secure enabled, then I use the disk Recovery System, once that I´m in the Acer Console Management, and I Selected the restore full, a pop up came with the message "Please Change your bios to Legacy¨ so I click on the exit button, and I enter to the bios and select the legacy mode, then the acer console management starts and says that the systems recovery fails because this is only for UEFI mode. So I dont know what to do, I have another 4 disk for the recovery but none of this is a booteable disk. Also I tried with UEFI and boot secure disable and same result .

Acer Aspire E1 571-6471 :: Cannot Access Recovery Partition

Feb 16, 2015

I purchased an Acer Aspire about a year ago and the laptop has seen minimal. I have experienced a common problem that Windows 8 users have. When I upgraded to Windows 8.1 - I got a 'failure to reconfigure updates' reverting back and it would go into a loop and continually do this. I only discovered this was common after. ALT+F10 does not work for me. Even though it appears the option is enabled on my computer. Currently if I can get the function to work - ALT+F10 did up until recently bring me to 'Preparing Start Up Repair' - then it would go to System Restore.

After System Restore started, the splash screen would just stay displayed and nothing happens. I am attempting to order recovery disks but apparently non US customers have issues with ordering them. I don't understand how this can happen. I have not used the laptop very often at all. It's practically a fresh install. In a year it has maybe seen 50 hours of usage. I have no way of accessing system recovery options as of now. The laptop is essentially bricked.

Acer Aspire ES1-511-C590 :: How To Recover From Recovery Partition

Nov 8, 2014

I bought an ES1-511-C590. It came with Windows 8.1 with Bing. It has a built-in recovery partition named push button recovery or something.
 
I really do not like built-in recovery mechanism on the same HDD. I perfer a DVD/USB or any external media.I wanted to export that recovery parititon to a DVD/USB. I searched the web and found that I needed to use Acer eRecovery Managment application. But mine did not came with that software, and I could not find it on Acer's web site either.
 
I installed Windows 10 on it. I did not like this laptop, so I decided to sell it. Now, I want to make it to factory settings. Pressing Alt + F10 showed some kind of error, like it cannot verify the signature of winload.efi. I thought Windows 10 somehow messed it up. So I installed normal Windows 8.1 Pro I had. Then tried Alt + F10. Now, it did not show that winload.efi error, but it asks me to insert a recevery media. That is, it does not recognise the recovery partition.
 
By the way, the screen of Alt + F10 looked like stock Windows 8.1 screen from Microsoft, not Acer. When I watched it on their web site, it showed some kind of Acer recovery program. Is this normal?
 
What happened? Is my recovery feature broken? I can still see the recovery partition (11.03GB), why can't I recover it? Any method to recover the factory state.

Acer :: How To Unhide And Delete Recovery Partition In Aspire 6920

Oct 3, 2009

I have Acer Aspire 6920 Notebook which came with vista home premium in 64 bit installed. I have made Recovery disks (3 DVDs) and had resorted to factory defaults several times by using the DVDs and not by Alt+F10 (at that time I did not know about alt+f10). I now have removed the 64- bit vista home premium and have windows-7 Ultimate RTM, Vista Home Premium and XP Pro all in 32 bit in three separate partitions in one single hdd. I have also done BIOS upgrade from 1.06 to 1.14. I have SATA mode set to IDE instead of the default AHCI due to XP not functioning under AHCI interface.

My BIOS shows hdd pw frozen by default though I have removed the hdd and set the BIOS to default twice. I find the Vista Home Premium in 64 bit OEM is a real pain since it has a lot of third party softwares free and sharewares which I have to uninstall every time (more than 20 of them) and therefore I tried to delete the acers recovery partition which is of 18 GB size and my Notebook with 250 GB hdd shows only 232 GB.

However, the partition is hidden and I have tried to unhide and delete the recovery partition with a number of third party partition softwares like Paragon, partedit32, Easeus, Norton, acronis, G-parted, macrium reflect, all with no success!

Now I request the learned members to give me a solution that will work, in simple procedure explained, to unhide the acer recovery partition and deleting it without disturbing my present OSes installed on the three partitions. Macrium does not show the PQ Service/EISA partition.
