Acer :: 5920 Restoring To Factory Settings
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?
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 :: 6920g Gaming Settings
settings I should be using for gaming. Currently i'm using the default settings. It seems to run spore perfectly fine no lag/choppy game play (offline) a little online though and the graphics are smooth and sharp. When I play nhl 09 the gameplay is very erratic and choppy and the graphics are terrible, they start off decent and then just digress completely to box like looking players as if it were played on something a bit better then the n64. I checked the system requirements for nhl 09 the 6920g meets the requirements I even have 4gig ram not 3. Is it something to do with my settings or is the 6920g just not good enough to play it? Would I be better off returning it and try to exchange it for 08 see if that runs better, although ultimately i'd like to keep 09 if possible.
Some notes about my computer:
Not much is installed on it games/ software wise, I only have spore, nhl 09 and nba 2k9 installed, office ultimate 07, and then antivirus software and what ever came with the computer, plus the usual media players, IM, etc. I have 92 gigs free on my first partition, where it is installed. on the other partition is where i keep all my media.
Dell :: Restoring To Factory Settings?
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).....
Dell :: Latitude D600 Recover Back To Factory Settings
I have a Dell Latitude D600 which i bought a few months ago second hand, It came with charger and thats it. No recovery disk or nothing. Laptop worked perfect and is a really good laptop. However I have so many viruses on my laptop, I have ran all types of AVG's, adware scanners, and much more. Its cleared alot of the viruses but still the laptop is not working properly.
I would like to restore the laptop back to its factory settings, i have backed up all my data on an external harddrive so its all good. I checked on google and it says something about Pressing F11 + Ctrl or something like that and it has a recovery procedure in the laptop allready. I dont think D600 has that feature and guessing i need a recovery disk. I have looked on ebay and cant find any, Im not even sure what type of recovery disk to get because i found a few, prices were ranging from £30-35 and i cant afford that as i am a student.
Is there a way where i can download some sort of recovery software for dell and burn it onto a disk or something, I looked on google but there is no detailed sources telling me about this,
how i can restore my dell latitude D600 back to its brand new settings without having to buy the recovery disk.
Sony :: Boot Times For I5/i7 Z: Factory Settings, $50 Fresh Start, Clean Install, Manual Uninstall
Now that the new Sony Z is out, I think it would meaningful to get a sense of the boot time for this system under various scenarios.
If people could post the boot times of their Z with this information:
- Whether you're calculating the boot with all the bloatware untouched (factory settings), with the $50 Sony Fresh Start (which still has a couple unnecessary programs), a Clean Install, or a Manual Uninstall of all programs.
- And the size of your SSD or HDD. If it is an SSD, it would be nice to know if you can tell us have many SSDs are in the RAID 0 configuration as that affects the speed.
I think this would be very helpful not just for direct comparison, but as another factor to consider in whether to do a clean install, which takes more tech-savvy than some may have.
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 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 :: 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 :: Virus On My Laptop Which Has Completely Wiped It Out
My daughter has managed to get a virus on my laptop which has completely wiped it out, it won't start windows, it won't do anything. Its an acer aspire laptop and I worked out it has a partition from googling and did the Alt F10 thing which seemed to work a dream, did a restore to factory defaults etc. etc. but it then started to load windows, I had to choose my location,enter username and password etc. etc. and then nothing, just a blue screen (which is the windows backdrop) and nothing. I've taken the battery out after about 2 hours, restarted the computer and it did the same again and has now been sitting at this blue screen for an hour or so, should I do Alt F10 again? or am I just suppose to wait it out?
Acer :: Optimal Settings For Downvoltage Aspire 5670
I own an ACER Aspire 5672Awlmi (5670 series) notebook
Intel Core DUO 1,73
120Gb SATA @5400
ATI Mobility X1600 up to 512hypermemory
2Gb DDR2 Ram
My only problem is its temperatures from the first day i bought it - especially during summer months.
I found some threads that mention downvoltaging as a possible solution and o downloaded all the appropriate software. The thing is that my CPU temperature remains at 84 - 90 C and as all tutorias agree i need to make experiments to see over which voltage my laptop is not crashing and having blue screens. Has anyone set up a similar laptop (or a laptop with similar configuration) to tell me the voltages used to make it run?
Acer :: Sent Laptop For Screen Repair, Harddrive Wiped
What is the point of sending a laptop to repairs if they do more damage than good? I could put up with the dodgy screen. I have months of work, musical compositions etc. stored on that laptop. This is a disgrace and I can't imagine what would possibly compensate for it. I'll have to see what I can get off my old laptop that I gave to someone else and look through my emails for stuff I sent people.

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Fps
I've got the acer aspire 6920G, and when i play world of warcraft my fps drops to 7 in 25man raids. I play with really low options.
I've always had low fps, i tried installing windows Xp, vista and now windows 7 and nothing helps.
Now i must say, win7 had the best result. My fps increased in major cities, but in raids it's still the same thing.
I defragged my HD, I use a 64bit to use my full ram, I run no background programs, all options are on low, and i still get 7fps.
Acer :: Aspire 6920G RAM 3GB Or 4GB
i've just got an Acer Aspire 6920G and i have a question about the RAM.
The sticker on the palmrest says it has 4GB of DDR3 RAM, as does the box. But the system information on the computer says 3GB, CPUz says it has 4GB.
I've opened it up and there are definitely 2 sticks of 2GB DDR3 RAM, so why does the Windows system info say it only has 3GB?
Acer :: GTA IV & Aspire 6920G
I have a Acer Aspire 6920g with the following specs:
Geforce 9500m GS 512MB
Inter Core 2 Duo Processor T5750 2.0 Ghz
Windows Vista SP1 Home Premium
I have tried lowering settings to lowest, but i only notice a couple of fps gain.. So if i change my settings from medium to low, i notce +3 fps wish seems really weird. I tried using a lot of tweaks with the commandline, turning off clip capture.. but nothing help, it's still runs at about 15-17fps. Ireally love this game, and I hope i can play it at an acceptable speed. I understand that the game is extremely unoptizmed, but i hope there is something i can do.
I've tried a couple of drivers like the ones on acer site 176, 179.28, 179.48, 182.50 (dox).. but i noticed that all are about the same.. I even tried installing XP, but that didn't help either.
so what do you think i should do?
And for those who have acer 6920g, are you able to play GTA4 fine?

I have an acer aspire gemstone blue 6920G, and I am wondering, can I use wubi to install Ubuntu on this laptop?

Even with the boot partitions all taken can I use Wubi? I know it may stop the instant on from working, I don't really care about that.

If I minimalize the game, for like, one minute and then maximize it back, it works perfectly smooth for some time again. I have no idea how to fix it. It probably isnt overheating as it occurs after I launch my lappy and then the game(the laptop is cold).

Windows XP pro sp3 patched
i have this shutdown problem. it started since i installing windows 7 into my laptop. my computer turns of itself after 10-30 seconds after an OS boot. except on safe mode option. the computer works fine on safe mode. at first, i thought that this due to software problems. then i think i should wipe out my OS and install new OS.but unfortunately, my laptop turns of itself while installing the OS!. this sound weird isnt it?
ive tried to use multiple OS to be installed. win7, vista, and even unbuntu OS also. but the turn off problem still occurs..
ive read from other post about the thermal issues, doing some patches at BIOS download from acer websites. now, im running on v1.14 for my BIOS. still. the turn off issues still occurs.
so, ive tried to look for the hardware malfunctions since trying to look at software problems cant find a clue.
after doin some reasearch and testing, ive notice that by disabling my duo processor in device manager, the computer works fine. by using single core processor now makes my laptop works fine. but surely, im running on low state now.
should i change my processor?
Acer :: Aspire 6920G And Crystal Eye
I've had this problem for a couple of weeks now. Didn't notice this until I installed Windows 7, but now my webcam does not work. I think it has to do with my laptop falling off the couch as I had problems after that getting the card reader to work (card reader is fine now). I have tried running the Crystal Eye program in XP, Vista 32-bit, Vista 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit with no luck (it just says camera not found). Occasionally in Vista I will get a popup error message saying a usb device has malfunctioned, and when I look in device manager it says unknown device.
Acer :: Aspire 6920G Windows XP
Alright, I recently installed Windows XP Dark Edition on my 6920G. Now, before going any further, yes this isn't an official version, it's a mod made by people... however, it does work- I installed it on my friends Dell and he has no problems whatsoever.
So, I changed the HDD to IDE mode because SATA and XP don't go together! The whole thing was working fine for about 20 days until this morning the laptop froze. I couldn't move the mouse, and task manager wasn't working. I turned it off and restarted- only to see the load ar on windows freeze. It stays like this for ever and I'm forced to manual restart again. The only thing that successfully works is Safe Mode...
Now, to give a little background info, I've installed another version of XP before this. I had the same problem after a few days no matter how many reinstalls. Also, the XP repair feature (and this is what worries me) says:
No HDD found. Please ensure drives are powered on blah blah...
So, I'm here without a laptop and this familiar problem of a ed OS! Last time, I just formatted the C: drive, and reinstalled. I even updated BIOS incase that was an issue.
Now, I know reinstalling the OS may cure the problem, but it's only a temporary fix, and I want a real solution. I rang Acer support, who tell me it's probably a software problem from microsoft update... I don't really believe this since each time (and I've done about 6 reinstalls of XP) the timing of this fatal error is random, ranging from one day to this- about 20 days.
Acer :: Aspire 6920G Downclock
I have the lappy for some time now and at start it didnt gave me any problems i played Crysis Warhead at Medium 60-80 fps. Now it downcloks all the time and cant even play the simpliest of games what the hell should i do?Its freakin me out...
Acer :: Aspire 6920g Freezing
The laptop randomly freezes and is unable to run after (need to turn it off using the power button).
- I scanned it for spyware and viruses
- Checked the drive using the windows tool
- I did not install any new software lately
- Installed the newest Intel Matrix Storage Manager (since I found it may be causing freezing problem)
- I noticed increased power consumption while running on battery (from 15mWh to over 22mWh)
I'm afraid this really may be hardware related issue.
