If i format did i need t backup windows to a disk or can i format without backing anything up to disk, in otherwords everything to format is on my Laptop(Aspire 6920g)? I dont need to save files, just my saved games
I recently had some trouble with my Acer Aspire 5920 notebook. A virus got through to it (luckily without any major damage).
I sent the notebook repairs and I already got it back and working...almost...completely as new.
I wanted to format the notebook and reinstall the necessary programs. This way I can get rid of all the stuff I don't need/want.
The problem is that eRecovery from the eEmpowerment tools needs a password to start the formatting. Normally if you don't fill in a password in the first place then there's no password needed when you want to format the system.
In my case, the notebook asks for the password anyway so my question is this:
How can I format my notebook (using eRecovery or another application) without the password?

ok i'm at work right now and was going to remove vista from my 6920 aspire to put on xp because i have vista. Thinking i wouldn't have a problem i simply used the Kill Disk program to format my drives. I put in my xp cd and it will not load because it says HDD not detected, I don't have a cd burner on my work computer but i do have a 4 Gb flash drive is there anything i can do to get it to load up windows xp, Been reading that there is something with XP not allowing install due to the laptop having SATA setup and xp won't work with that? Can anyone please help me. Hoping there is something i can do to maybe load the drivers from my flash drive then install the xp cd.
I was under Windows Seven when i got some virus problems. i format my whole HDD and start to have some problems. sometimes the computer randomly stops. Often when i'm copying files or defrag the disk. there, my laptop seems very hot. it shutdown when I play (whatever the game played the temperature are (according to SpeedFan) about 100°C))
I firstly think about dust. so i have clean by removing the trap at the bottom and cleaning the ventilation holes.
That change nothing. my computers stops 10 minutes after the game's started. but it boot right now after it stops, (i've head that in case of a too ward hardware the computer will not boot right now after it stops) metimes after a program ask a reboot and i say yes , the fan don't work at all after the reboot.
here we go......formated my laptop and removed XP, had vista on it at new but wiped it when i got it.
So i wiped it last night and reinstalled XP again, thought i had all the drivers but my device manager is showing Video Controller and Network Controller are not installed correctly.
Would the Network controller stop my wireless working because thats my main problem getting my wireless set up. I even tried resorting back to Vista with the alt-F10 buttons but all its doing is bleaping.
Can i get it back to Vista, my daughter says she wants it and where exactly do i get the drivers i mentioned i'm missing.
Once windows xp is installed do i go to control panel and set up wireless ? if i remember i'm sure it all went on automatic the 1st time i wiped it.
I have an Acer Ferrari 3000Lmi notebook. I just replaced the hdd with a new one. it's 80GB 5400 rpm, IDE It's not formatted and it's not partitioned. My notebook is an old model, so I don't think there's a recovery partition and it doesn't have an e-empowering acer button, etc. It only comes with Acer recovery CD's.
when I put the new hdd in, it's detected in bios, so I installed Win XP Home using the Acer Recovery CD. and it didn't have option to format or to partition my hdd there. everything just ran automatically. and now I have one C: drive.
Can anyone help me on how to partition my hdd ? I prefer not to use partition magic/other programs to partition my hdd. I don't know if I have DOS. I don't mind installing XP all over again, I just don't know how to format/partition the hdd before using the recovery CD.
I have had to fdisk my laptop because of various viruses it had and a keylogger. i want to put a copy of Xp on the machine but when i try it says it cant find any hard drives, it originally had vista home on it but i got no disks with it so i can't reinstall that either? The message i get when trying to install Xp is: "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer. Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.
I am formatting my friends hard drive and loading Windows. He wants only the basic drivers for teh notebook and none of the other Acer crap that pre installed. Can anyone tell me what these basic drivers are? Also I need to know if there is a correct order to install them in. I'm very familiar with Dell's and there is a specific order for them, but this is the first Acer I've done.
My wifes Extensa 5620 got a virus. Office Depot removed it with MalBytes. I'm still leary of something being missed. I would really like to restore it to factory defaults.
When I go into Acer eRecovery Management I see pick the Restore tab at the bottom of the window.
Now I am given the choices to
1.Restore system factory default.
2.(Which is grayed out and option not avaialable) Restore form users backup
3.Recover from CD/DVD
So I pick 1. Restore system factory default.
Next I am asked for the empowering technology password. Well I don't have it and don't know how to get it. I would choose number 2. if it were an option. If I place the disk I made into the CD/DVD unit will the option become available? I tried option 3. and it said to place the restore disk inthe drive.
I am trying to fix my dads notebook, its been running very slow lately and I want to format and reinstall Vista for him, however has most of you may know, it's really hard to find notebook drivers (well in my case it is), so does anyone know where I can find drivers for me dads 5634WLMi?
I have tryed Acer's website but they are either for 5630 or 5680/90, or can I use the 5630 drivers on this?
I Have an acer aspire 5100 but when to format hard drive and do full recovery but nothing went on the disc does any one have a copy of the recovery disc to help me out amd turion 64 mobile 1gb ram 80g hard drive
In an Extensa 5420 the hard drive was formatted as EISA instead of NTFS. Is there a way to change it to NTFS without destroying what is on the drive? It is running okay, is there a disadvantage leaving it as EISA?
A few days ago i bought an Acer 7730 laptop with Windows Vista pre-installed and no disks. After initial hesitation i have decided to keep vista and not downgrade to XP. After all there will be more service packs and tweaking should speed it up lots anyway.
However, i really want to get rid of the three partitions on the hard drive. There is only one physical hard drive but there are three partitions; a hidden 10GB one (EISA configuration) which from what i have gathered is now obsolete, a C: partition 111.44GB and a D: partition 111.44GB. There is no need to split a drive into several partitions now that we have the NTFS file system (unless you are using multiple operating systems of course - but i am not) so this is really annoying me.
I have made the 2 recovery DVD and the 1 applications/drivers DVD. I have an old WinXP disk that i can use to format the laptop if required.
Using the recovery disks (which i'm assuming contain a copy of my bought OEM Vista that was pre-installed on the laptop), can i delete the partitions, format the hard drive and install Vista onto a single c: partition?
I've done this exact process before with WinXP hundreds of times but i'm not sure whether i can do the same for Vista with just the 3 DVD mentioned...
I am both a mac and windows (only for gaming related things) user. I use an external WD passport hard 500GB hard drive for all my data. Its formated to mac journaled. This is very good for mac related work because it can handle files over 4GB. However if i have a game patch or mod I want to download in OSX and transfer over to windows via my external ( windows partition is formated in ntfs , because it was not working in fat32, i tried like 9 times) it is impossible because windows can not understand the hard drive is thier ( I have tried software to correct this but im very skeptical because it killed the file system and everything became corrupted)
I know its complicated but that was the first issue. The second issue is, I want to buy a new HDD thats fat 32. I want to keep it that way because when i formated this one to mac, it started acting a little crazy and could die any day now i think. It makes random beeps once a day and a grinding noise. This started happing right after i formated to mac journaled.
Today i was using my HP Pavilion dv5 Laptop(Windows-Vista H.P 32-bit) at my Uni, when all of a sudden my Applications started to freeze one-by-one.. i thought it was a mere Program error that was causing it so i started Windows Task manager, and then suddenly it Froze too! next thing.. my mouse also! everything just stopped functioning
i forced Shutdown it and then turned it on again.. then.. after a minute again my apps started to freeze again.. one-by-one.. tried it again.. same result
i tried Safe-mode.. and it worked perfectly.. but i can't figure out the cause of the constant freeze..
nothing like this ever happened before since i purchased my Laptop a year ago...
so i am deciding to Format my Laptop.. but i don't know how. Can someone explain how to Format my laptop please, i heard that there is some kind of memory in the laptop that has the Drivers and everything so i'm kinda guessing i won't need a CD or anything(..right?)
i wanna format my labtop from vista to windows xp. but when i put in the setup disk. when i choose setup, it will show, can;t detect ur hard drive. I still think it is same with dell labtop, we have to change the flash.. and ata for format windows vista to windows xp.
Ive always used FAT32 for compatibility on ext. HDDs, but now i need to put a massive 100GB image on an ext. drive, how should i format the drive so that both a Macbook and an XP computer can access it?
I want to use my desktop to install XP on a notebook drive that I will then put in an Insiron 8000 notebook. It's too long to explain why I don't just use the notebook to do this.
So, is it possible to do with the PC? I assume I have to get a special type of connecting cable, but can it power the external notebook drive and can the data transfer handle a Windows full install and, finally, from where on the PC do I connect it?
I've been reading threads and guides (1, 2) on how to format and reinstall, but I have one more question:
My friend owns an Inspiron but lost his recovery DVDs. In order to format his C: and reinstall Windows from the recovery partition, he should hit Ctrl+F11 at Dell logo and follow instrucions to format?
When I first got my HP DV7-1285dx with Vista (64) the remote control that came with it was working fine. I upgraded to the Windows 7 beta when it came out (I didn't do a clean install) and the remote was still working and kept working throughout the several beta upgrades I did later (to newer beta versions). However when the Windows 7 RC was released earlier this week I decided to do a clean install so I backed up the important drivers and files and did a clean Windows 7 install. After that my HP remote simply stopped working, the laptop won't respond to it at all (not in Media Center and not in anything else). I was able to reinstall all the drivers (from the backup) except for one which shows as "Unknown driver" in Device Manager, and when I do a driver update and point Windows to the folder including my backed up drivers, it does recognize the device as the "HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor" but says it encountered an error installing the driver software since it "couldn't find the file specified."
I don't know if this "Unknown driver" is in anyway connected to the Remote Control problem. I have no other problems showing in device manager by the way.
Also in an unrelated matter, I am trying to reinstall the MediaSmart software the came with the laptop. I downloaded the packages from the HP website but they won't install (since they're only update packages and not standalone installers I guess) so is there any way to reinstall the MediaSmart software from the recovery discs/partition?
I got a Sony camcorder for Christmas. Right now I have an Sony SR with 2.53ghz processor, 320 7200 rpm HD, 4gigs of ram, and an ATI radeon HD 3470 graphics card. My AW-190 was stolen so I can get a new laptop. What do you think is the optimum setup for file transfers, fast computing, etc?
Got a new laptop a few days back (6730b), which is alot nicer than the nx7400 i had. When i got it, it came with vista business and a whole load of 'bloatware' i didnt need. so i did as i normally do and formatted the pc and re-installed vista (although XP was very tempting). I finally got round to getting everything how i want it but i've realised since formatting the battery life seems to be less than it used to be....
before the format, when the battery was full it would say i had 4hrs+ of battery life (i even remember seeing it say 5hrs once). Now it says 2hr 30 mins on 'HP optimized', 2hr 45 on power save!
I've been having major problems browsing the internet lately. Safari won't stay open for more than 2 minutes without crashing and Firefox will half the time not format web pages correctly. For example, as I'm typing this in FF right now, in my tool bar up above this text box I have the boxes with bold, italics and underline options showing, but I can't select them. Even worse, the rest of where boxes should be just have text, for example it says Align Left, Align Center and Align Right instead of having selectable boxes. What is up with my browsers?
