Preferred Solution: How do I restore everything on my Acer aspire e15 laptop

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How do I restore everything on my Acer aspire e15 laptop

More detailed nformation is essential here.What happened prior to your files disappearing?Do NOT run a fectory restore/reset routine, as if you do you will lose all prospect of recovering your files.Does the computer boot up to a normal desktop etc.?

Not sure if this is the correct sub-section of the forum but couldn't see a more appropriate place.

Any advice appreciated: I'm trying to do a factory restore on my Acer Aspire laptop, as it started crashing, stalling etc. and then eventually just failing to boot up. I've gotten a fair bit of my important stuff off it using a Linux (Knoppix) disc, so am ready to do a factory restore.

However, when I try to do so, I get the error message: "WIMApplyImage Fail. Error: 045D" then I click on "OK" and it says "FAIL to restore image"

Any ideas? I'm worried that my hard drive may be physically damaged. When I listen it's making the odd whirring/clicking noise, but doesn't sound particularly out of the ordinary to me.

Or, on the other hand, does anybody know of any alternative options to the in built Acer factory restore?



A:(Acer Aspire laptop) Factory Restore failing - hard drive damaged?

Hi Chris. Welcome to TSF.

Have you tried opening up a terminal window and running chkdsk /r on your system? You might also run "sfc /scannow" from within the terminal window as well just to see if perhaps your problems are system-file related.

The clicking noise you're hearing is a bit troubling as it is often an indicator of an impending hard drive failure. I'm glad that you backed up your stuff though. Often that is one thing many people do NOT do and then they are left scrambling for ways to recover their data.

Good day!

When I turn it on the acer page comes up then the screen goes blank.There is a fan sound continuously though,but nothing else

A:how do i restore acer aspire e15

It may appear/disappear rather quickly - but is there the usual message to press whichever key to access setup?Does the hard drive light/led show any activity?This is the manual for your model Acer, which it might be useful to download/browse... albeit long shot:Power down and remove both the main power - and the battery.Then press and hold the on/off button for about 30seconds or so. Then restore power and see if per chance the problem has cleared (This tip from Derek and on occasion it works).Be aware that if you "do" manage a factory rest - and I wouldn't go there just yet - all your personal files will be lost in the process. So if you haven't already copied them to external storage (DVD and/or an external hard drive) it would be wise to try and recover them first. Then once you have managed that - set about resolving the problem as exists.Download the ISO from:ubuntu.comBurn to a DVD; boot with that DVD. It will load a Linux variant into RAM only. Presuming it does so then you can access the hard drive and safely copy all your personal files to DVD etc.

I have the 2 recovery discs for my old acer aspire 5335 but dont know how to use them. I have a new laptop and want to wipe my old one ad restore it for my son to use. I thought the discs would auto run when put in the disc drive.Ian

A:acer aspire system restore

There appear to be two ways to reset/restore it to as new...This is one source for the (user) manual for your model: the language setting (top right) but enter acer aspire 5335 in the search box...It will cough up many language versions; scroll down a little to English... and download. You get one go and then have to wait about 30mins or so if need to download again...Pages 41 and 45 discuss the disk to disk method, and the recovery partition routine... You need to go into bios settings to enable the disk to diss approach:copied from the manual at above source:page 41:Enable disk-to-disk recoveryTo enable disk-to-disk recovery (hard disk recovery), activate the BIOS utility, then select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen. Find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the <F5> and <F6> keys to set this value to 45:I want to restore my computer to its original settings without recovery CDs.Note: If your system is the multilingual version, the operating system and language you choose when you first turn on the system will be the only option for future recovery operations.This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps below to rebuild your C: drive. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option.Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.1 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.2 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.3 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during POST.To start the recovery process:1 Restart the system.2 While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to enter the recovery process.3 Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.Important! This feature occupies 15 GB in a hidden partition on your hard diskThis (fyi) is the actual service manual for the 5335; which oddly doesn't appear to include factory reset/restore info...? But is is pretty complete otherwise... this is the Acer how to go about it from their knowledge/support area: the link therein takes you to here: - the actual instructions...Presumably you have copied all your personal stuff (the stuff you wouldn't like to lose) to dvd and/or an external hard drive?

A:acer aspire factory restore

Power up the AspireAt the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the Alt key and press the F10 key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery.It's often ("always") helpful to post the actual model details too when posting a CFH (Call For Help) in any forum Occasionally the information required may be specific to a given model.Presumably you are aware that the Factory Reset process will erase all your personal files too? So if there's anything you wouldn't wish to lose - copy those files to external media first (typically DVD). Check the copies are OK - and if possible on another working system too.

How do I perform a factory reset on my acer aspire desktop? Could not remember the password and access the computermessage edited by flip1

A:acer aspire factory restore

As best I recall there in't usually a password for this...?What model Acer do you have? Generally the factory reset/recovery is done via the Alt key and then F10.See this earlier discussion about an Acer desktop: another guide here: suggest you read the info in all three links first...Have you safeguarded (copied) all your personal files etc. off the system entirely? Remember the factory. Rest wipes the drive fully in process, so all your personal files will be lost. So wise to safeguard them first by copying to DVD at least, and if possible an external hard drive too. And make this a regular practice too - as safeguard against "any mishaps" in the future. Then set about the reset if really needed.Why the need for reset; is it necessary?

The problem I have encountered has happened twice recently.

My netbook would not connect and seemed to freeze etc...I went to system restore but the next message to come up stated there were no restore points...I had restored several weeks prior to this.

Also a message came up that I had no active web security even though I have a current McAfee prog had been turned off...this has happened twice over the past few weeks.

There were also a couple of other minor changes to my netbook that had happened,such as changes to the screen layout and other things.

It is all sorted out now but what could have been the problem please ?

Do you have a USB thumb drive? My daughter has one of these. It has XP Home. Do you have a legitimate copy of XP Home? Copy it direct to the thumb drive and set the bios to boot from USB drive and use the key on the back of the unit to install. If the home CD is OEM there is a chance it won't except the key.

I suspect the 42/42 step hangup was not really a problem. If everything works, it should run OK, in the future. If there was a problem because of the step hangup or not installing properly you would see it immediately.

I don't know what the logo/Icon is. I had an Acer but it was a full laptop, not a netbook. I had a Samsung netbook with the Win 7 starter and I had a USB connected CD/DVD burner and was able to create the needed backup discs, if they were ever needed (fortunately they were not).

I have a Acer Aspire One Model AOA110-1588 netbook running Windows XP with all the latest updates. It is running extremely slow. It ran faster when I first got this netbook. I decided that I would restore it to its original factory defaults. This model does not have an optical drive, however the documentation states that I can restore it by selecting ALT & F10 during start-up and it would go into a restore menu and sequence getting the original setup from the secondary SSD drive. When I attempted this procedure no menu appeared. I attempted several times and ensured that the BIOS was enabled for Disk to Disk function as specified by the manual. I have the System CDs but no way to use them except copying them to a USB Thumb Drive if that would work. Does any one have a suggestion or experience with this type of a problem.

I've tried about 5 times already to no avail. It goes through the entire setup procedure, says it's installed, but then there's no trace of it anywhere.

I have an Acer Aspire AX3400 desktop running Windows 7 64bit. I have been having all sorts of problems over several months. The machine, when left unattended, appears to be always "recovering from serious error" with subsequent memory dumps. The machine would not shut down without me having to switch it off. Subsequently the machine would not start up properly. iTunes would not open without a reboot etc etc etc. I decided to backup all my data and restore to factory settings. This has failed/ is incomplete. It hung for several hours at different stages of the process. I keep getting the message "Setting up PC for first use" and does not move on from there. I'm unable to run in Safe Mode because the setup hasn't been completed. I have a restore disk but this hasn't helped. Would really appreciate some help.

A:New Help Bad with a Acer Aspire Laptop! Please

I am not sure what else I could do to see if in fact the drive was badIf you have another computer and by using a USB external enclosure, you may be able to check the status of both the new and old laptop drives. There maybe a chance that your hard drive is not well seated and needs to gently press while powering up your laptop and then try checking on your BIOS utility. Check also for any dented pins. Have you tried reapplying thermal paste for the CPU and look for any oxidation and burnt components?

Hello NiQui and welcome to TSF!

Have you tried booting in Safe-Mode?.
If not you can try this by holding F8 when Windows is about to boot and a menu should appear. You should select " Boot in Safe Mode". See if you manage to get to desktop with this.

First of all try disk clean up > run that
Then again but this time choose 'clean up system files'

Run CCleaner Slim (only in its 'default' settings) and run the cleaner. Use its 'Tools' to remove all but the latest System Restore point.

Other things to free space is do a clean uninstall (using something decent like Revo Uninstaller in its Advanced mode) of any programs you don't need or use.

I'm having a few issues with my laptop. I'm running Windows 8.1. Can someone please help me figure things out? 1.) Can't access Acer Explorer, says there's no program that can open it!! what?!2.) Keeps randomly shutting down. Yes I've run my virus program and made sure the fans running and clean. Still, however gets hot, so I'm wondering if I might need to replace the fan. How can I know for sure?3.) Keeps telling me I need to update or install the flash player but when I do, it says I have the most updated version.4.) Can play and hear music played by my media player, but when I try to burn the file to a disc it says either to install cd/dvd burner or the format is wrong. I have a cd/dvd burner installed and it works just great except when I download music from the internet and try burning them to a cd.

There's no way to upgrade a video card in a laptop unless it's something from ASUS, MSI, Alienware, (If you're lucky)

But even if you could, the upgrade would probably be anywhere from $200-$600+ maybe even more. Old 7900GTX Go cards are still fetching roughly $100 on Ebay

A:my acer aspire E15 laptop is not starting up

Since it shut down during gaming (which creates more heat), the laptop may have overheated. When that happens, it shuts down automatically to prevent permanent damage to the components.So let it cool down for a few hours then try again.If it still won't power up you'll have to take it to a laptop repair shop.

I've had this since it was new, but I got a more powerful asus laptop for christmas last year.However, thats waiting for a new power supply.

This Acer was never THIS bad. Even resuming from sleep mode, the mouse lags badly, sometimes freezing for a few seconds. Chrome takes forever to load. Facebook freezes often. Even using the start menu, it lags. The final straw was when I went to delete a small text document, the entire laptop froze solid and needed to be rebooted.

You guys have helped me in the past, so i'm sure its possible to be fixed. I have tried: uninstalling things, Malwarebytes, Ccleaner.

My laptop just shut off one day and will only turn on when the back/bottom of the laptop is not on, which means my motherboard is completely exposed, once I put the back/bottom back on it will not turn on.

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot.

In particular run a full Disk Check from DVD or Repair CD System Recovery Options Command Line, followed by SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

If these fail to help work through the other steps in order until if necessary you run Factory Recovery or Clean Reinstall. You can rescue your files at any time using that step.

My first post and its a problem

basically I have a Acer Laptop when it goes into standby and you try to go back to desktop you get a bluescreen of death and reboots but it happens to fast to see the error.

Other times it will just randomly freeze for no reason.

Sometimes when you press the power button all you get is a black screen.

I have installed winxp home and pro editions, done all service pack updates and driver updates. Updated the bios. and still the problems persist.

Has any one got a solution or faced the same problems.

I have Acer aspire e1-571 laptop for a while now more than one year. Recently it started to boot really slow. Not the windows part but the time between pressing the power button and Acer logo appearing.. Was very long about 10 to 20 min. I searched for a solution, and I tried removing the bios battery and putting it back. But now it dosntieven boot up anymore. I waited on it all night all nothing. The lights are on I even hear the fan but nothing the screen doesn't show anything.
Could anyone help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

A:acer aspire laptop won't boot up.. help !

Try reseating the memory. If you have more than one stick, try booting with just one stick, and then alternating. Sometimes, it can be the memory slot itself, so try the other.

Also, be sure to have all external devices unplugged: USB sticks, hard drives, mice, etc.

Hello folks,

My sister's Acer Aspire 3002LMI has recently ceased to power on whatsoever. Bought in '05 and run mostly from the mains, it suddenly acted as though it was running out of battery - despite being plugged into the mains - and went into hibernation.

By the time she showed it to me, pressing the power button would just make the battery charge LED flash 8 times - nothing else. Now, a few days later, absolutely nothing happens when I press the power button.

The problem occurs regardless of whether the battery is in the laptop. She never used the laptop without the battery in - as it formed part of the base - so whether it ever worked without the battery is not certain. I've also tried using another power cable, to no avail.

So, any ideas what the cause of this problem could be? Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Hi Dave, and welcome to TSG.

Check if the Dell monitor has any buttons for activating an on screen menu that allows you to choose which input it should use.

My son has an Acer Aspire Laptop 5630. For some reason when you try and turn it on nothing happens, this will happen 2 or 3 times then it will start to boot up. It then goes to the blue screen where it starts to check the Hard Drive after it has finished checking the drive it starts again to check the drive and just keeps on repeating this action has anyone got any ideas as to what is happening. The OS is XP home sp3. Any help much appreciated.

Hi All,

Hope you can help me please. My Windows 7 laptop won't shut down normally. The screen shows it's shutting down but it just continues on and on.

I Have to remove battery to close down. (Not good)
Start up is also quite slow. When it's running everything seems to work normally. Not slow or sluggish.

I have Kasperky Internet Security. I do regular scans using Malwarebytes, SUPERantispyware & Kaspersky.

I would appreciate any help anyone could offer.

Hi - I have a strange problem with my Acer Aspire Ultrabook laptop. The screen only displays when it is part open . As soon as I open the screen fully it just goes to a white blank display. The laptop is working fine other than this problem ..... if I connect to an external screen it works normally.

Hi there.... So I spent an hour this morning and ironically used up 30mins of Skype time to call Acer about my free $10 Skype voucher! I bought this laptop about a month ago and did what many people here seemed to also do - I followed the steps outlined in the leaflet included with my purchase....I registered my product with Acer and waited for an email with the voucher number for Skype....and surprise, suprise it never arrived.  I spoke with *6* different people this morning and wasted not only my time but my own Skype minutes calling them.  If anyone from Acer can help me with this I would very much appreciate it - as thus far I'm extremely unimpressed with how this has been handled.  Thank you!

Hi! I have an ACER Aspire 3050 for some reason will not turn on. No lights, no fan, absolutaly nothing will happen. The laptop isn't actually mine, its a friends. I shake it from side to side a little and I can hear a tinking sound like something is loose. I'm going to try and open it up to see if this is the case but if its not, is there any other reason why it just randomly won't turn on anymore?

Thanks for any help!

A:Acer Aspire 3050 laptop will not turn on

I think it's best we wait for your reply to what's loose inside!

Make sure battery and power adaptor out
And also hold down the ON button (to disperse all internal voltage)
