Waiting your comments, thanks from Spain. I tried going into my bios but there is a password that i do not remember setting…Anywhooo. I came back to my comeputer and there 3 questions to chose from and I chose to exit and my computer locked and would not finish the backup installation. Strange, because your Windows boot drive should be the C: unless you customize the drive letter yourself. Otherwise I am sorry but you probably have to contact Acer for this issue.
Basically, I have used my computer for about 5 years and want to know if simply restoring to factory settings will get rid of all my personal information? I'm sorry Linda for the late response, I hope you can see this and it can help you. When I tried restoring the software the first time, it came up with an error and would not let me back into windows. Choose to clean the drive if necessary, which will take longer. Any help would be much appreciated. After you get into Windows Password Key system, choose your Windows Installation and account to change or reset password. Plug out when it finishes.
Rgds, Taylor Hi… Is there any way to use the Recovery Discs from my Acer Aspire Win 7 desktop…on my 4 yr. I would like to set up my laptop the way my desktop is. Rgds, Taylor Can somebody please help me! The recovery parition accessed by a combination of key presses very rarely works. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that I just got the computer back from Acer-they installed a new hard drive and told me that they are not responsible form software problems.

When I turn on my Acer laptop, I get a black screen with Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc. You will definitely need to purchase a new hard disk, but I am not entirely sure how you can copy the entire image from you existing hard disk to the new one easily it can be done but technically quite difficult. Your laptop will restart and begin the resetting process. However, you may lose data when you reinstall Windows 7 in this Recovery mode. They work really well and come pretty quick.
Turn off your laptop completely. I think my Acer laptop got a virus a couple of days ago — any programs would automatically close themselves. Never got any windows 7 disks or accessoires with it.

Other than that, I would suggest you to send your laptop to Acer Service Centre to have a look, though it will cost a little bit. When i tried to reboot it looked ok but all the writing was bigger and windows login page came up asking for username and password. Let me know I could try and help you.
I tried to boot up 2 days ago and pressed F10 which sent me to a boot manager. Do I need other drivers or is the driver file I used the wrong one. The instructions they come with clear up most all questions you might have. Save the changes and reboot your computer. Also, when you first launch erecovery, it'll ask you to create a password, keep that password safely. Does anyone of you have any ideas on this? This same software lets you create Recovery disks which are an alternative way of recovering the computer to original state.
Rgds, Taylor You are giving fantastic information. Its a good safety net. When I boot up laptop it goes thru the listing motions then acts like it is going to load win the lil win bar even shows up at bottom scrolls for about 10 secs then bsod with one error. I have searched high and low for the answer with no luck, so I was hoping someone here could help. Can someone suggest any way that I can fix it? I was only allowed to boot up in safe mode. Will unzipping and running the exe files in that one install the eRecovery Management? Before restoring to factory settings, you have to backup first.

Thus, without booting into Windows installation, pressing R key will not help. I just got this same latptop last night. Acer will charge you a hefty amount if you forget the password.
I accepted the warning of erasing my C: contents. This is a guide for you to do a fresh installation of Windows 7. I expect that would have cost me at least £100. Acer does not give out win 7 dvd's any more as part of their software reduction program. Windows will then load eRecovery files. They claim it is too old for them to still have the recovery discs.
Instead, you can sue Acer Care Center, adding the premise that you can login to Acer with password. Its an Acer 3690 running Vista and it doesnt have a restore disk.
