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.
I have an aspire 5515 it came with a amd athlon single core 2650e clocked to 1.60 ghz 3 gig of ram vista 32 bit and a built in ati radeon x1200.
iíve been researching and discover that my board uses a s1 socket and that the board and the version of the bios will support a turion x2 processor ive been looking to see if anybody has done this and theres some people that claim they swap the athlon for an athlon x2 but the original processor only uses about 15 watts and the one that they claim to change was 55 watts soo i dont think thats true im looking at a turion x2 tl66 2.3 ghz running at 35 watts will this work and will the power supply handle the difference and will the temperature be ok
i want to do this for gaming will the 2650e single core at 1.60 for the turion 64 x2 2.3 will it be a worth upgrade ?
Every time I put the bootable disk in to install windows xp it will get to the point of saying starting windows then I get the blue screen of death. How can I install windows xp? Right now it has vista home basic
I have an acer aspire 5515. Great machine for me. I am interested in finding out if the processor can be upgraded. It currently has a AMD Athlonô 2650e 1.6ghz in it. I have not been able to find information on the motherboard for this laptop. Acer site was not much help but I figured it was because the laptop came out around 12/09 but i dont no for sure. I happened upon the emachine site and there is one that looks exactly like it and has the same specs. So I have to wonder if this is an emachine with acer plastered all over it. Does anyone no what the motherboard model is or for sure what the highest processor i can upgrade to, if possible. I see where others say they have put higher processors in it but want to no for sure.
I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 5515 Laptop. Has a built in Wireless card. It detects the hotspots with no problem. It connects to the available networks with no problem. But it will not connect to any internet service. Strange, but that is also what trouble shooter says. Connects to network, but not to internet, thus browser cannot resolve to any URL.
I even disabled firewall to see if it would help, but it will not.
Even has issues trying to network at home using ethernet cards. Detects, but will not connect.
I just changed the hard drive on my acer 5515. I also tried to add an operating system using a flash and it won't do anything. I changed the order so it can read from the usb but after that it's stuck on a blank page with a flashing line.
I have an Aspire 5515 with the black screen of Death. It is running Windows Vista. When you boot up lights come on, fan and HD are on but ¬†no screen. I was told to re-flash bios to fix it, so I downloaded Bios from the support site.
I have the AS1410 with win7. I couldn't get the virtual cd solution to work (perhaps that is because the version is now 10 not 9 or that I'm on win7 64bit). So my approach is to copy the the first 2 partitions, PQService and the 100MB one, and track 0 (MBR). These are all that is needed to build a new system on a new disk (I think). So here is my how to:
1. Grab your free copy of Paragon Backup and Restore from here and install it and get a free serial number from the web page it gives when you install.
2. Run it and choose backup disk or partition. Tick to save track 0 + MBR, and the first 2 partitions before C: to an empty directory on C:. Remember to apply changes then wait for this finish.
3: Copy this directory to a PC with a DVD burner.
Inside the directory you'll find the archive files split into DVD size chunks. Burn these to DVDs together with downloads of Paragon Backup and Restore, 32bit and 64bit to cover all bases if you want, plus the serial number, and a text file telling yourself what to do, which is: Install Paragon Backup and Restore, combine all the archive files into one directory on a hard disk, then rebuild track 0 and the first 2 partitions.
I want to do a recovery of my Pavilion g6, I will have to do this from the recovery disk (D) on my laptop since I don't have it on a¬†seperate¬†disk or DVD. ¬† My questions are: ¬† - Will I have the original storage on my harddisk (my notebook has a problem since refreshing it, after the automatic recovey I lost about 40 gig storage and now it's more than 50 gigs after 4 weeks of having this problem) ¬† - How to backup my files during the recovery process, will my computer store it on the pc or will I have to back them up to a disk or pendrive? ¬† - These problems started after someone else used my computer. Could it be a virus infection? ¬† My option is to go to ask the seller to do it for¬†me, but if there is a way I can do this myself that will save me money. ¬† ¬†I have a HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC. ¬† Processor:¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† AMD A4-4300M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics ¬† Product number:¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† C2N63UA#ABA ¬† Operating system:¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Windows 8, ¬†64-bit
Does the factory default., only back up the files that were originally on the drive when I first bought it, regardless of what I install afterwards? and the Custom backsup everything? I noticed that Factory Default is 10GB, but the Custom is 29GB. This is confusing because I only install two small programs on top the Factory Default. WHat is the other 19GB?
I have a Aspire 6930G that came with 3 partitions.
After I make my backup image, so I still need the recovery partitions?
I am still on a long learning curve operating my PC. After refreshing my Aspire E1-570. Windows to remove malware, I had to reinstall all my new apps & software which deleted . After doing that ¬†I received a message to create a recovery file to factory default file on a USB. When I tried to do there was message that new apps & software would be deleted. Can I create a recovery file without having to re-install all new apps & software again.
I have been given an Acer 6930G by a family member to setup. After realising there's 0 discs included with the laptop, the Acer pop up message tells me I have to make my own factory default image. I have successfully made it on 2 DVDs, my question is now in the manual there is nothing about how to use it, I was wondering if anyone can share any insight to me as to how it works.
Basically I know it is probably a bootable DVD as the root of the DVD suggests (several "BOOT" files) I was wondering how it actually looks like? I haven't tested it yet as the user was extremely desperate to get it running so I had to give it up the moment the DVDs were made.
If I put the DVD in and select to boot from it at start up (before getting into windows) does it take me to some sort of custom screen where I can SELECT that I want to reformat and restore the laptop? I want to know what options I am given and I can only assume that it's the same for most laptops.
And I can only assume again, that if I factory restore it, it will come back with Vista activated and all the initial bloatware again, along with all the drivers for it (so I don't need to go track them down).
This is all I need to know, I wish I can test it but I can't even get the laptop back now (until it breaks ...)
If someone can post their experiences with it I will be grateful, this is just more for reassurance than anything, and confirm my assumptions? Many thanks in advance!
EDIT: I have discovered that I can launch that recovery app by pushing ALT+F10, I have managed to wrangle the laptop temporarily to test and have discovered that I can choose from 2 back up options, but I dare not go any further, can someone tell me the next steps? One says factory default, and the other is user's backup.
I can guess that if I choose the first option, factory default, it'll ask for the DVDs I have created? And the 2nd option will restore a backup I made selecting the user option on the recovery app.
As of today, Aspire V3-112P BIOS files,¬†even the onboard version file, have not be available for download. When will Acer release a bios file, even the old one, for download? ¬† F2 enter into BIOS, but found noway to backup BIOS to a file. Fla**bleep**.exe backup.fd /g (with version 2.0) failed to backup. ¬† So it comes to the second question: how to backup the current onboard BIOS to a file? It looks like insydeflash can't backup onboard BIOS to file without providing an existing BIOS file. It's so awful.
We have a brand new Aspire E15 and are wanting to create a recovery backup on to a usb drive. ¬† As per the user manual we type recovery in the search and select 'Acer Recovery Management'. ¬† We then get the User Acount Control window asking if we want to allow Acer Recovery Management to make changes to the computer, then click 'Yes'. ¬† Then nothing happens......
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.
My hard drive failed and my backup has been lost. I installed new hard drive and purchased a full version of Windows 8.1.
I changed the boot order to internal CD/DVD drive and tried with secure boot enabled and disabled but can't get windows to load. Says boot device not found.........please instal an OS on your hard drive. ¬† Model: 17-e071nr
ive just finished setting up my new acer ES1-512, And was about to make my recovery media through the acer console in windows 8.1, and the program will not open ? i get to the part where it wants me to allow the program to make changes, but then nothing happens ? i have tried going to the file location its self to to start the program but this makes no difference, ive looked all over acers site to see if i can re-download the console but have found nothing?
I just bought a new Dell inspiron 15R laptop , and i want to make factory backup.I insert a USB flash and press "continue", but it keeps loading and when it recognizes the USB flash and i press "start" it prints out that there is a problem with Dell Backup and Recovery and i should restart the program !
i bought a new hp envy 15t-j100 (window's 8 64bit ). during installation of some program i installed another windows start menu (i thought it is windown 7 start menu for windows 8) but i discovered after that it is a windows 8 start menu for windows 7. this caused my computer to stop showing anything after starting up. i restarted it many times but nothing is showing on the screen except the mouse cursor .i don't have any backup recovery for my computer.
I just purchased an Inspiron 14R for my granddaughter (graduation present). I know Dell doesn't ship OS Recovery disks anymore¬†(poor decision), but I¬†thought I'd be able to create one from the Dell Backup and Recovery app.
However, all I see is the "System Recovery" option, which doesn't work. It fails after the first DVD. I don't have a flash drive to try that option yet.¬†
But I don't really want 4 DVDs of a full system backup; I just want a Windows 8 OS Recovery DVD. The manual seems to say I have one opportunity to make one, but I've never seen that option.
There must be a way to get or make a simple Windows 8 OS backup--why is this so difficult?
I have a Dell Vostro 3300.¬† Windows 7 OS.¬† Hard drive went out. Replaced hard drive. Reinstalled Windows 7.¬† Used backup system disk that I made with Recovery Manager back in December 2012.¬† It looked like it was working properly, but after using all backup disks, got message image could not be applied.¬† Started over, reinstalled Windows 7.¬† Put in #1 backup system disk. When drop down box is displayed asking which backup to use, I choose 12-29-2012 like I did before.¬† Nothing happens. It just sits there. Next button can not be used (it is greyed out).
Yesterday I purchased a Yoga 2 Pro. Updates are finished and I now want to create a backup to an External HD. According to the users guide I have to press the Novo button and click on system backup. Well I pressed the Novo button and there was only System Restore; no backup option. Is the manual wrong or is there something else I have to install first?
When I try to backup using OKR the default partition Lenovo D drive is only about 1.5GB so obvioulsy cannot backup there as not enough space. So where do I save it, is the C drive ok or is that just dumb?
