Acer :: Aspire 3020 Factory Restore
i am trying to restore laptop with restore cd's that was supplied, the problem is that i can get the alt f10 system to work as it just constantly beeps till i let it go. i have read through threads that talk about a recovery partition but not technically minded so i dont know if this has one or how to find it.
Acer :: Restore System To Factory Default
I am planning to restore my laptop to its factory default because of some problems like the "Windows Update" window is all grayed out. I tried finding solutions in the net but it doesn't solve the problem so maybe system restore may do it but inst going to remove all the programs, like MS Office? Are the files saved in drive D also be removed? My laptop has MS Office already when my mother bought it. I have Acer Aspire 5730z.
Acer :: TravelMate 3280 Restore Factory Settings
About a week ago, some serious problems happened to my TravelMate 3280 to the point that booting in safe mode doesn't even work. I couldn't access the eRecovery Management either and didn't any recovery DVD.
So finally, I reinstalled windows XP SP3 from scratch. As a result, the computer didn't have Acer eRecovery Management installed. I still prefer the original factory settings though. So I browsed around online forums and found a thread by Pupples at Install Factory default, eRecovery
I did what Pupples suggested, managed to restore the alt+F10 function, and entered the Acer Recovery Management during start-up. Then, I chose the Restore Factory Settings option.
The restoration process began smoothly until about 50-60% progress when an error message occured. It says:
Fails in creating or opening a file
After those messages, the computer booted again from the beginning and then entered a black screen with a writing on the top of the screen. The writing:
NTLDR is missing. Press any key to continue.
I pressed any key, but the same NTLDR message kept on re-appearing.
Does this have anything to do with the FAT32 or NTFSthing?
Are there any ways to restore my TravelMate 3280's factory settings?
Acer :: ERecovery Custom Backup Vs Factory Default Backup
differences are between the two.
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?
Acer :: Changing Processor- Aspire 5610z
I have an aspire 5610z and it has the pentium dual core. I was wondering if it is possible to fit a better processor inside, maybe the core 2 duo or something else. Has it even been done with my type of laptop? Im really serious about doing it, but I need this question answered first. Also is there a way for my notebook to accept more than just 2gb of ram?
Dell ::with Factory Restore?
I'm trying to restore my SXPS16 back to how it was when i bought it using the recovery partition. But when I go to the advanced boot menu the option to do the factory restore is missing.
I know I can do a clean windows install using the CD that came with it but I'd rather just have it the way it was when I first got it.
Does anyone know of a way to fix this, or otherwise, is there another way to do a factory restore?
Dell :: Factory Image Restore
I am trying to restore my laptop (studio xps 16) to factory settings using the recovery image. If I look in my computer, i can see C and D drives.
D is my recovery partition with 7gb full out of 10gb. This is good and dandy except when i open the D drive, there is one folder that says RECOVERY that is empty. Why is it empty when there are 7gb's of files in there? I already have hidden files shown
Dell :: All / E1505: System Factory Restore
I have a Aug 2006, Dell E1505, 1.83 ghz, 1 gb ram, ati 256 1400 etc etc + 80gb HDD (note) win XP & media center
for last three year never formatted my system, it was going good... recently some virus attack happend and it made my notebook verrrrrry slow, so i did the famous Ctrl + F11 !!
follow mark mck's bloatware removal, did a hdd defrag for non-c drive.
But my question is, even after everything the system is not running as fast it did in 2006
boot time is ~1min, shut down is 35 odd seconds...
So, my 2 cents say that after long usage, even if you do a factory restore DO NOT EXPECT a out of the factory hardware/speed, all u get is out of factory windows settings and bloatware ((
Dell :: Factory Image Restore 1640
trying to do a factory image restore on my Studio XPS 1640. I've done this before on other Dells but this one I don't see the Dell image restore option as said in the booklet.
I don't see the Dell Facotry TOols either. I just have the following: startup repair, system restore, system image recovery, windows memory diagnostic, and command prompt.
I chose system image recovery and it doesn't pull up anything - it's for my own images I made. No option to pull up my Dell factory image which I still have in it's own seperate partition.
Dell :: M1330 F8 Factory Restore And Virus?
recently got hit with a bunch of trojans when using Internet Explorer. I managed to clean them off or so I thought. Periodically, when I open Internet Explorer my virus scanner detects a trojan.
Since the original trojan screwed up my computer to a degree I had decided to reload my operating system anyway.
If I hit F8 at boot and do a factory restore will this reload the disk to the state it was in when I originally received it? Will this also get rid of these viruses that seem to still be plaguing my system?

Acer :: ERecovery On Aspire 5100 Laptop
Im trying to do a factory restore using the Acer eRecovery on Aspire 5100 laptop, which I set up using their wizard, input the password, ran from Vista, it has rebooted and is showing the Windows XP logo and the moving "progress" bar thing. However, after about 3 mins, the bar stops moving and nothing else happens, its been like that for ages now. Resetting the power starts it up and gets to the same point and stops again. I have used it before without problems, the hidden partition was there before I started (I checked). Now I cant do anything with the laptop at all! Can anyone suggest what I can do now? I didn't ever get round to making DVD backup disks. The machine is also 2 years old, and I dont want to spend a fortune on Acer's 50p per min customer service, considering they should've given me a boot disk with the machine in the first place. I only wanted to restore it as for no apparent reason all my USB devices stopped being recognized by vista.
Acer :: Aspire 3690-2196- ERecovery
I'm working on my friends laptop (model mentioned above). He does not have the eRecovery CD so I'm unable to restore the machine back to factory. I tried loading XP Pro (Volume License) before and after disabling D2D in the BIOS and wiping the HDD.
Once the installation begins, the machine begins to install the necessary files normally, I reach the "Starting Windows" prompt then the machine crashes to the following error(s):
*** STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005,0XF854A0BF,0XF8996208,0XF8995F08)
pci.sys - Address F854A0BF base at F8543000, Datestamp 3b7d855c ***
No additional hardware is attached to the machine during install, It has the default hardware installed. The same Volume License install disk worked fine on an older Aspire 3000 model, Dell, Gateway and (2) custom builds.
Acer :: Aspire 6920 Erecovery Error 1014
I have an Acer Aspire 6920 and I'm trying to to do the erecovery, everytime I try to create the disks I get a message saying
"Error Code: 1014
Burning Error, Please insert a blank CD/DVD into the optical drive and press OK to continue"
I have tried many different blank discs but I always get the same error. I have also red the thread on this forum where someone had a similar problem and I tried running my computer in safe mode but the programme will not run..
Acer :: Aspire 5315 - Factory Setting
My Father has given me his Acer Aspire 5315. It is full of stuff i dont even need. It is quite slow aswell. I was just wondering is there a way i can delete all programs but keep Windows. I would like it so it exactly how it was in it came out of the box with all drivers installed. I only want to do this because i dont have a Windows Vista Disc or any Driver's for the laptop.
Acer :: Aspire 5610 Factory Reset
I am trying to perform a factory reset for a Acer laptop but I cannot find an option that I am looking for.
I hit ALT + F10 at bootup and I get to the eRecovery Management screen.
From here, I get two choices:
1. Restore system to factory default.
2. Restore system from CD/DVD
As, I do not have any DVDs, I choose option 1. After that, the recovery process continues without any more prompts and restores the laptop to its default settings.
Here is the problem but. The laptop has a 120GB Had drive which after factory reset is split into 2 partitions of 55GB each with the remaining 10GB for the hidden recovery partition. Thus there is 3 partitions in total.
As it is Vista Premium, C: is already 50% full straight after the factory reset.
Is there any way I can perform the reset and have an option to just have one C drive of 110GB? I did not see any such option when performing the reset by using ALT + F10. There doesn't seem to be an option for this when performing the reset from within Windows itself.
I was thinking maybe deleting the D partiton before performing the reset may help but I am not 100 percent sure as I am not sure if the factory image contains 1 or 2 partitions.
Acer :: Backup/Factory Recovery Make Your Own Factory Image?
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.
Acer :: Restoring Factory Defaults, Aspire 5930g
I decided to restore my aspire 5930g laptop to factory defaults, and started out with creating the restoration discs. At this point, i wasn't really aware that one could restore from the harddrive.
So i booted up the discs and started the restoration process. But now, the dialog tells me to insert the third disc, while i only have two. What should i do? I could try to kill the restoration process and start over from the harddrive, but im afraid to harm the system.

Acer :: Aspire 5810TZ - Restore The Computer
I am stuck being tech support for my brother who is living in Torres Vedras, Portugal right now. He is having some problems with a pretty new Acer Aspire 5810TZ that was given to him around Christmas time. The computer had been used for about a month before he received it and had a few programs installed on it along with the usual bloatware. I cleaned up what I could before he left for Portugal again and installed AVG anti-virus, MS Office '07, and Windows 7.
Now that he is back in Portugal he is having problems with the things he uses most on the computer (Built in microphone not working, built in webcam only working randomly for a short amount of time, and DivX failing any time he tries to watch tv or movies online) I've walked him through updating all the drivers and reinstalling DivX, but nothing seems to fix these problems and Windows 7 is starting to look like more trouble than it is worth to him.
Main Question: Is there any way to restore the computer back to the way it was when first purchased (with Vista or 7, whichever will work) without the use of recovery discs (He does not have any with him over seas) in a way that is simple enough for me to relay to him?
Acer :: Aspire 3680 Hard Drive Crashed; Need Restore CD
My high school-age son was working on an English paper when something fell off a shelf and whacked his Aspire 3680 right above the hard drive bay. It started clicking and finally crashed.
The computer won't run with the hard drive installed. It makes nasty clicking sounds trying to boot, and finally beeps and powers off. Without the hard drive, the laptop powers up and runs BIOS just fine.
We can buy a new hard drive, but it seems awful to pay Acer another $20 + $10 shipping for the Vista restore disk!
Acer :: Aspire 5920G Recovery Disk, D Drive And Restore Points
Im only just burning the factory DVD restore of my system via Acer eRecovery Management. I should have done this a long time ago right when I first recieved my laptop. What ends up on the factory restore DVD?
Another question, my laptop really has noticably slowed down since purchase. I know this is natural...especially as I currently have lots of games installed...only 9GB currently free on C.
This free space varies drastically day to day as restore points seem to automatically be generated by vista. I think this automatically takes place when vista downloads and installs updates. How can I change this? It's annoying as I have a consitently fluctuating amount of free space on C..I frequently delete these points using Tune Up Utilities 2008 which brings me back to the norm.
Also, the D partition seems like a huge waste of space to just leave as it is. There are 103GB free on this partition with only two windows folders existing on there. I have never touched this partition thinking it is there only for disaster situations, like if vista dies and wants to make an image of itself here.
Is this correct or can I move other files onto this partition? Will this increase performance?
Im just trying to increase the speed of my laptop day to day workings. My girfriend was saying that the D partition can maybe be somehow partitioned to speed up the laptop?
Acer :: CMOS Jumper Switch 5610Z
I have a grandson just older enough to be dangerous around a computer. Recently I allowed him to use my 5610Z to make some pictures of himself, etc. Later the family went home far from here. Still later I tried to start the Laptop and "enter supervisor password" would appear each time I tried to start it. I'm never used a password, don't even know how to do such a thing. Naturally I called and he "remembers nothing!"
I'm old, 75, and do not have good vision. I found in the Manual for the Model a page showing "Jumper Settings" and a diagram with the description, 'Clear CMOS Jumper.
J3 locates at the bottom side of the main board as the red circle highlighted." Fine, I found it physically but don't know how to turn it on or off. I've pulled batteries to clear CMOS before but never had to deal with a switch.
Would I be correct in using tweezers and just pulling the square object up, or try to turn it?
I miss my Acer. Two years, never a blue screen, nor freeze up. I want it back running before I kick the bucket.

Acer :: ERecovery Management
1. Can anyone give me information on how to change the default drive for

Acer :: ERecovery Windows 7
I have been using my computer for about 4-5 months now, downloaded files and installed applications etc... but I still have not created the Factory Default Disc.

Is it possible to burn the discs without all the bloatware on them?
Acer :: 6935G ERecovery Stops At 99%
Been trying to do a full system back up on the eRecovery program on my Acer 6935G laptop but during the first disk out of three it gets to 99% and then the whole laptop locks up (I have just read up on google that the Acer program does this anyway to make sure nothing running in the laptop's background gets in the way with the writing process) and after about 5 mins or so the laptop kick in again & I can move the mouse and do things like browse the net again etc but the Acer eRecovery program still sticks at 99% and the DVD drive stops as well but then nothing. Also as well while the program is still running at 99% and the DVD drive stops when I look in my computer I notice that the DVD drive has disappeared and it has also disappeared from the device manager too! when rebooted though the DVD drive seemed to work normally & displayed in my computer again etc.
Last night the same thing happened as well when I made a back up of the Acer drivers & applications through the eRecovery program and it first halted at 99% too and because the system locked up I thought that the whole laptop had crashed so i rebooted the laptop & as well corrupted the writing of the disk so the incomplete disk had to go in the bin. Tried the process again with a new blank DVD and it worked and completed the application & driver back up. I'm puzzled to why it stops at 99% and does not complete but I want to see if this is a common problem or if anyone else has had the same problem? (I know that there are a couple of people on here who have bought this laptop on here recently) I don't want to risk keep trying to do the back up only to waste DVD's. By the way lastly the DVD's I am using are DVD+R's and they are over a year old.
Acer :: ERecovery And D:(DATA) Partition
I'm planning to kick my Aspire 5024 laptop back to the factory settings, but wanted to put one uncertainty to rest.
I understand C partition will be restored to out-of-box condition and it no longer contains anything important, all is backed up. However, I have run out of storage space with backing up the D-partition. The partitions are as they were when machine was bought.
Will Acer eRecovery touch the D: (DATA) partition if I instruct it to restore the factory setup? I have found multiple references saying both yes and no. Part of it is due to ambiguous language ("all files will be wiped" "the HDD will be in the condition you bought it" vs. assurances that D: is safe)
Acer :: Do ALL Vista S Have ERecovery Partition
Would an 18 month old Acer 3690 that shipped with VISTA have the option in ERecovery to reinstall the whole OS from the hidden service partition. I know XP versions do, what about Vista ?
haven't got the notebook here... when I upgraded XP to Vista I remember that ERecovery at the time wasn't supported... wouldn't work with NFTS or something according to Acer.
Acer :: 6330 Without ERecovery Manager
My girlfriend has an ACER Aspire 6330 which needs to be re-install (it was probably infected by a virus, like a trojan). She has the recovery DVD and the hidden partition (around 4GB, but called "ACER" unlike other laptops as I've seen on these forums), she has Windows XP SP2. I managed to format the main partition (the one with Windows normally), but I can't re-install windows + drivers
When using Acer Empowering tools, there is simply no eRecovery Manager icon (only 4 of them, instead of 6). I tried to download the Acer eRecovery tool from their website, but it refused to set-up saying "Error: this system doesn't have D2D" or something similar.
But this laptop do have D2D ability:There is a hidden partition, with a full working-windows
There is a D2D functin on the BIOS (which is activated).
When I tried to use the recovery DVD, it basically copy files somewhere (it seems it's on the hidden partition) for like 1 hour, but the main partition (the one after the hidden partition) is still with nothing on it.
When I start using the hidden partition (pressing Alt+F10 at the Acer screen), it just starts normally from the hidden partition and that's it. It doesn't copy anything on the main, blank one. And Acer Empowering still does not have any eRecovery thing...
Acer :: ERecovery After Repartition C Drive
I have a new laptop. The system is just now finishing initial configuration. The D drive is empty. After it finished, I want to repartition the C drive to enlarge it.

Acer :: Software Lookup ERecovery 184.108.40.206.zip
I do not know what happened to ACER TW , but looks that their FTP, was loaded with the most fresh software versions, at list for the older generations of the laptops , other than the very fresh.
I find out that there was one updated version for the eRecovery 220.127.116.11, that many laptops still use, as it is part of the erecovery hidden partition software - utilities.
No were in earth you can find a download about the eRecovery 18.104.22.168.
Or worst ... not possible to find the eRecovery 22.214.171.124.zip as the ACER TW server has close down.
So ... now its my turn to ask for some real help about finding this file.
If some one haves it, i do need a copy.
And no matter what, i must find it.
Last know source about this file, its this link.
Acer :: Erecovery / Hidden Partition
I have an aspire 4930 laptop which came with Vista pre-installed. To cut a long story short I installed windows xp to replace this which has been a total disaster (although the system is still working). I would like to start afresh with vista so need to do a factory reset. I have no recovery CDs.
I can confirm that the hidden partition PQSERVICE is intact. I cannot however run the erecovery software from windows because it was lost along with Vista and as far as I am aware I cannot download a windows xp compatible version.
WinXP over-wrote the ACER MBR so the Alt-F10 command stopped working however I have used a live CD version of GRUB to boot to the recovery partition, sidestepping the need to restore the Acer MBR. When the vista partition boots up Acer eRecovery Management loads, however the "restore system from factory default" and "restore system from user's backup" options are both greyed out.
Acer :: Erecovery Loads On Boot Everytime
I installed ubuntu on my laptop through a flash drive. I then loaded up Super Grub from a CD to remove ubuntu and grub to restore Windows boot menu because I preferred XP, I followed the instructions from Super Grub menu, and I was sent directly to the Acer erecovery. I decided to restart my laptop after that, reset everything in the bios, including boot order, but now my laptop keeps booting up acer erecovery, even after going through the process.
Acer :: ERecovery Directory Path Error
I have an Acer Aspire 5100 series laptop running Windows XP home. Was wanting to use eRecovery Manager to make a full backup of my current system. I have two hard drive partitions, both 60GB in size. The C drive is almost full (onky 9GB free) but the D drive has 47.9GB free. On the "Make Backup Image" page it says that the estimated image size will be 43.96GB, and it shows the free space of the D drive as space available. The problem is that no matter what I put in for the Name of the backup, and no matter the number of characters in the save name, the program fails almost immediately with the following error:
Too long directory path!
Backup is failed
Error code = 0xF0000014
what I can do to fix it?
