Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

ERecovery won't finish

\015 Hey Everyone,\015\012I was having intermittent problems with my laptop for a while and kept running norton and other checks without finding anything. Then one day it shut off and booted back up into scandisk and was finding a bunch of errors and seemed to be removing things. Then when it finally booted into windows xp the profile was gone and it went into the admin profile. Everything under my profile was gone with a few folders left with distorted names. I ordered the recovery disk and then found out about hitting Alt-F10 to run the embedded eRecovery. It will run the tool up to about 90% and then the computer shuts off completely and wont turn on or show the charging light at the front for about five minutes. If I try booting off the cds, there is no dvd player recognized to boot from. Any thoughts. I appreciate it.\015\012\015\012Matt\015

Answers :

Hi - mjune - to be able to boot off the cd, your cd/dvd has to be listed as a boot device ahead of your hard drive in your BIOS. As soon as you turn your pc on, it should say on the screen hit alt-F10 for recovery and something like <del> or F2 to enter setup. Hit whatever it says for setup. Once your in, go to the boot section. Your devices should be listed in the order they try to boot from. Make sure your cd/dvd is listed ahead of your hard drive(it may say primary, secondary,etc) If it is not, it will tell you how to move it up in the order. Usually you just highlight the device you want and use the + and - keys on your keypad to move it up or down. Once you have it, save and exit. Usually F10 but it can be done from the tool bar at the top. It will reboot and while it's rebooting put the cd in. If you don't catch it in time don't worry just leave the cd in and reboot. It might say press any key to boot from cd drive. Just press any key. Try this and let me know what happens.
