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.
I am trying to restore a corrupted M5 to factory defaults. Since the HDD was corrupted, the Acer eRecovery would not work. I purchased the Recovery Media CD set, changed BIOS to boot from CD, disabled secure Boot.
The System Disc comes up, i selected Restore Operating System to factory default. I get prompts to insert Recovery Disc 1, and after a few seconds get a message that the is no sufficient disk space to copy temporary files.
The HDD is 500GB, C: drive is 450GB and 415GB free.
System: Aspire 5552, Model Pew76: I'm attempting to restore the default software using the System and Recover Software. Everything goes fine until after Running the Language disk. The installation hangs at 99%. Here's what the Restore Progress displays:
Just purcased Aspire E1-510-2611 - 64 bit, Windows 8.1 - as it was set up in store as display model it appears to be in "Display Mode" - with account already entered, etc. How do I reset to factory defaults so that when I turn it on it is just like turning it on for the first time or is there a better way to get back to the "just out of the box" condition?
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.
to put laptop back to factory settings, so I done the Alt/F10 on the Acer logo page to take me to the page to start this. On the Acer eRecovery Management Page I use the restore system to factory default, when I do this I get a message saying D2D32 - Type mismatch and then hangs there forever until you turn it off. I was reading on here about that error code and done what it said to do to make sure that it was enabled and it is.
I have rang Acer and they said theres nothing they can do as it out of warranty, by 24 days
He didnt make any recovery discs and hes pissed at me because this has happened! am not happy myself, as I rebooted 3 other acers with no problems.
Would he need to purchase disks or can they be got free?
if i use the recovery disk to take my old HP to factory defaults before selling it, is it still possible for someone to use those data recovery software to pull up my old info? Is it just better to use something like dban of killdisk?
I would like to restore my XPS M1530 to factory defaults. I saw on the recovery drive a file called Factory.wim Can I use that file to restore factory defaults? I would like to format the drive and start from new again if possible. Do I need the disks that were sent to me with the laptop or is all of the info on the recovery partition?
How do I refresh my HP G62? My laptop runs Win7-32bit and it was used by my son. Now that he has another laptop, I want to use his old one and I thought of refreshing the entire OS and to have the laptop as it left the factory with the defaults. Can I refresh it to Win 7 64bit or even Win 8.1?How do I do the refresh procedure with HP tools?
We have a Dell E6330 that is running Windows 7 Professional on it. we need to set this Dell back to factory defualts but do not see an option to do so. I know that it does have a recovery partition but I do not see a way to access it.
I don't use it very much; it's more a backup machine and the occasional Skype to grandkids. Been having a problem with being unable to use windows update; keeps getting an 8007005 error.
Googling reveals a lot of folks with the same problem, some different fixes, and mixed success stories. I've tried several of the fixes with no luck and probably made things worse than they were before (now Defender won't update).....
well i have a very old dell demension 3000, i saw restoring the os with a hidden partition/program created by dell can restore to factory settings. but the thing is if it fails i dont want to go by windows xp/windows vista os operating disk/activation key
I have a Dell INSPIRON 14Z that comes with pre-installed windows 7. The laptop has the recovery partition and i would like to restore it to factory settings. What are the keystrokes for restoring the laptop to factory settings.
I have an inspirion 15R I wish to reset to factory settings, but I can't figure out how.
I've tried going into the control panel and doing it from there, but when I try to reset the system, I'm prompted to insert an installation disc for windows 8. The computer never came with a windows 8 disc.
Recently I installed trial version of Windows 7 64bits on my Vostro 1014 (which originally had 32 bits Windows 7). I choose clean installation, which erased recovery partition. My laptop came with no CD. I want to restore my laptop to original settings.
I lost the restore partition on the original SSD that my Yoga 13 shipped with. Is there a collection of drivers and whatnot that would allow me to restore it to factory defaults on my own with a fresh windows installation? I have the win8 key from the BIOS but don't want to lose out on all the required drivers if I were to just reinstall windows myself.
I have an acer M3 581T which I bought about a year ago. Now, windows crashed and said there was a file missing. I am no longer able to boot up the system, I've tried the erecovery (alt f10) but it just proceeds and says it's not able to boot. I have no recovery cd/usb at hand. It is of my understanding that this ultrabook has two harddrives. One SSD on which the operating system is installed and one HDD with the other files on.What do I do to make it work again? I do not care if all my files are lost.
I got a problem with my Acer Aspire 5315. The HDD is shown in the bios but won't show in Vista most of the time. The HDD is completely formated, including the Acer partition. So recovery is not an option.
The problem is strange because it is not consistent. Sometimes I am able to acces the drive and install Vista. But then the next day,when i try to boot again, i only see a cursor after the Acer boot screen.
I've tried running in IDE mode. I also tried replacing the HDD with a new one. I installed vista with the correct Intel driver.
I also tried running Linux live cd. It also sees the HDD drive correctly but when i try to acces it, the program freeses.
I'm affraid something is wrong with the I/O controller, or it is a loose cable. If you think otherwise, please let me know. If not, i'd like to know how I can check the HDD cable.
