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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all,

I've got an Acer Aspire 7552G laptop. And I would like to restore the original Windows 7 OEM version on it but don't have any recovery discs or partitions on my HDD that include recovery programs since I've replaced the HDD.

Is there any way to get the eRecovery management or could someone else maybe sort me out with this?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

hi. i'm just confused about one of the options of the acer erecovery management,
the "restore operating system and retain user data" option. i'm thinking of
using it actually.

my current OS is windows7. originally, my OS was vista. there is also a backup OS for windows vista in my laptop (the one in the hidden partition).

i just want to ask: if i use the "restore operating system and retain user data"
option, will i be able to retain and use my windows7? and not the vista?

thanks... hoping for an immediate reply.

A:acer erecovery management

If your recovery partition has vista and you have win7 now on the system partition, I doubt you'll be able to use the erecovery options at all. Even if they work, they'll restore vista. If you ever want to restore vista, you'll probably need to mark the recovery partition active, then boot to it.

Once you overwrite with another OS, recovery partitions dont really make too much sense. Best strategy is to first backup an image of the current OS, then reinstall the new OS. That gives you a painless way of reverting to the earlier OS.

I ordered a "Recovery Disc" and a "System Disc" for my "Acer Aspire M1100". The discs loaded correctly (I believe so). The "Acer eRecovery Management" is the problem, it has been loading for 6 hours now. Is this normal ? If not what can I do to fix this issue?

Thank you for any help.
 

A:Acer eRecovery Management

"Normal" to me means to use a Recovery disk to "recover" the computer's operating system to factory default condition. Is that what you did with the new Recovery disk? If not, what?

What is the System Disc? What does it contain or do?

What are you trying to do with the Acer eRecovery Management? (Whatever you are doing 6 hours does not sound normal.)

Hi everyone. A special hi to those who keep trying to solve problems!
I've got an Acer Aspire 5720z. I've been using it for approximately 3 years. I made a backup using Acer Erecovery. All was going well. But I needed to upgrade my Hard Disk Drive from 80GB to 300GB. I had to transfer all my info to the new HDD. I transferred partly; I made a last backup of C: of my old HDD, then I transferred my Backup File (erData) to the new HDD on which Acer Factory Default Disk was installed. I also restored to factory default on the old HDD while pressing the Alt + F10 on startup. This method of recovery happened only once. Now when I do same function on old HDD, the following appear:
EDIT BOOT OPTIONS

Edit Windows boot options for:Microsoft Windows Vista

Partition:2
Hard Disk: _________ (example:2ad434db)

[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN

Also when I try to restore the backup (erData file) using acer Erecovery, my laptop just restarts itself without any progress. Neither the restoration of backup nor the restoration to factory default works. The laptop restarts itself without any error message. Only restoration by factory default disks works. I restored with factory default disks to try to repair the problem with Acer eRecovery, the problem is unsolved till now. Any idea what can be done to solve this?
Waiting 4 a response asap. Thx buddies.

Hey guys

I want to recover my laptop, an Acer Aspire 8735G. When I bought this laptop I deleted all the mess that comes with it, but I accidently deleted Acer eRecovery too, which is necessary to burn the hidden backup partition to a CD/DVD which is what I wanted to do.

I want to burn the hidden partition on a CD or DVD and then just recover my laptop. The reason that I want to recover my laptop is because I have most files backed up and there's too much mess on my laptop to figure out everything I want to back up.

The mess on my laptop is just too big to find out what I still want to use of it. Anyone has a download to the Acer eRecovery Management application? It's been deleted from the Acer website for some reason. I already downloaded a version of the eRecovery program but the loader said it wasn't compatible with my version of Windows/hardware.

Thanks in advance guys!

Is anyone familar with how the Acer eRecovery Management system works?

We have a Acer Extensa 5420 laptop with Windows Vista installed. I have created a backup/restore point. I was wondering what the difference between the four options for creating backup disks?
The difference between:
Create factory default disc
Create user backup disc
Create current system configuration backup disc
Create driver and application backup disc

I have read the help section in the eRecovery Management application and a manual I found online but I still don't understand the difference between these options, especially between Create user backup disc and Create current system configuration backup disc.

My goals are to have a full backup of the laptop as it currently is including Windows Vista and all files.

I am still used to older operating systems where you had a disk to reload the OS after a format or if serious problems occured. Am I able to create just a Windows Vista disk? Also, if I am able to create a disk, how do you reload Windows Vista when we don't have any type of code to enter? Second question having to deal with a Windows Vista reload disk is it possible to use this disk if you were to install this on a new hardrive, say for example we upgrade to a larger hardrive on the laptop?

Sorry for all the questions I just have not been able to find any further details on what the backup disc options actually do and have never owned a operating system that didn't have a disk.
Thanks

So, I bought an Acer 5742 with Windows 7 last month, and I have reason to believe I was attacked by a virus.

Losing hope, I try using the 4 recovery disks GeekSquad gave me when I bought the computer.
I choose the option to restore my computer to factory defaults while backing up my personal files.

Everything goes smoothly up until the "updating system" part. According to the time-elapsed, it's been 10 hours since its been frozen on 99% (still on Disc 3 of the 4). I'm going to put in Disc 4 and leave it for another couple hours while I go to school.

If I don't see any changes, I'm going to force a shut down and reboot the computer.

Will this harm my computer, and possibly corrupt my system?

(also, I know it's only been 10 hours, but that's still pretty long for system recovery, don't ya think?)

I have an Acer Aspire model E360 desktop computer. Using the Acer eRecovery Management program I created a backup DVD disk.

I have been attempting to follow the Acer instructions to then create a backup image of my C partition on the D partition of the hard drive.

I continuously receive a "Too Many Indexes" failure notice only 5 minutes into the backup.

I have disabled the XP "Indexing Service" which was not activated in the first place.

In chatting with a tech for Acer out of India he said to forget the instructions and that you simply cannot back up to the D partition without getting error messages and that you must back up your image to DVDs through the optical drive.

I had at least hoped to back up to an external hard drive but the 2006 version of this program does not allow for anything but backing up to the D partition on the hard drive or to the DVD optical drive.

My questions are:

(1) Is there some way to overcome the "Too many indexes" error message so that I could simply back up an image to my hard drive D partition as Acer intended?

(2) If not, is there a way to back up to an external hard drive perhaps with an updated version of the program?

(3) Or do I simply have to burn 25+ DVDs to make the backup snapshot image of my C drive which has about 90GB?

All of this has come up because I need to reinstall my XP operating system which has become "clogged" with not hard drive format for some four y... Read more

A:Acer eRecovery Management glitch

90GB of data on your C: drive? It certainly is "clogged up"!

If you want to 'start afresh' with a clean installation of XP you need to do a recovery from the backup partition which should be on a hidden partition on your C: drive.

Here is the standard Acer Recovery Instructions:

1. Power on the machine
2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the “Alt” key and press the “F10” key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery
3. Once eRecovery has loaded, click “Restore to Factory Default Settings”
4. Click “OK” to continue
5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore a fully functional factory image (approximately 10 minutes).
6. Once eRecovery has run, press “OK” to reboot unit.

IMPORTANT!

Back up all your user files (Documents, Pictures etc) to the D: drive before doing the factory recovery because everything on C: drive will be overwritten with new data!

If you then want to create a backup image on to a hard drive you'll have to use a third-party disk-imaging application as even the current version of Acer eRecovery is unable to do that.

Hi there!
So i have this desktop computer which i built from an old Acer Predator. The only Hardware left from the old pc is the RAM and the HDD though. I recently swapped motherboards ( I now have the MSI z87-g45 ) and yesterday my pc started to prompt me with my windows not being genuine. I tried to reenter my activation code without much luck. I then watched a video on youtube which told me to download some software to fix the problem. Considering the over 500k views and the overall positive comments, i took a chance. Now after ive run the software (Open 7 activator or something) my pc continuisly boots to Acer eRecovery Management. Ive tried to run the complete factory reset, but the program seems to stop and the pc reboots automaticly while it is "Updating System" . Then it boots up again and prompts me to reset my hdd once again. Anyone know how to fix this? Been considering just reinstalling windows, but it would be nice if i could keep atleast the other partion of my hdd. Thanks in advance :=

A:Acer eRecovery management for recovering operating system

I don't know if there is a way to get past the stalling, but you should be able to do a clean install of Windows 7 without using the eRecovery partition if you have a valid Certificate of Authenticity sticker containing a 25 character Product Key.

You'd end up with a fresh Windows installation without any of the other stuff Acer may have included--no Office, no extra stuff. Just Windows 7.

You'd need to download a Windows 7 ISO and burn it to a DVD or get it onto a USB thumb drive if you don't have a DVD burner.

Unfortunately, my first post is about a problem i am having.
I have this acer Aspire 5942g.
The power management button on the upper right or the program or both (?) does not seem to work.
I have of course launch manager and power management programs installed.
When i press the button, it does light up green, but i have no indication on the screen like i have when i activate wlan or bluetooth.
When the drivers of the powersmart manager are uninstalled the button does not light up green when i press it, so it seems that the drivers partially work.
Also, nothing changes in my power settings nor the screen brightens down, no sign that it works.
Actions i took so far:
I uninstalled and installed both programs, and i run them as admin.
I installed first the launch manager and then the power management and the opposite.
Nothing changed.
I go to c: program files:acer:acer powersmart manager and try to open the right exe file which i think is ePowerMsg but then i get an error message saying that the element ePowerMsg stopped working.

My system is roughly 5 months old. I had used the upgrade software that Acer provided to upgrade from Vista to 7 home premium. There was no issues with the install and everything worked great for a month and then it started going in to deep hibernation. The only way to wake it was to unplug the power from the tower. I did everything I could think of from editing the registry to updating drivers, to finally reinstalling everything. No go so I packed it up and sent it back to Acer. I just got it back from Acer's repair depot. They had to replace the motherboard, hard drive, and fans on the system. They performed a factory restore and told me that I was good to go and updating shouldn't be an issue. I went to use the upgrade dvd's from Acer and low and behold, the hibernation thing started again! It took me four attempts to restore it back to factory. Now it seems stable running Vista. I am in the process up updating the drivers and windows stuff so time will tell. Is it me or is Acer systems flakey?

Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can go about updating to Windows 7 without having to format every week? I have tried doing clean installs without going the upgrade path and it still behaves badly. Sometimes it won't even turn on. Or is it just possible that the pc I purchased just can't handle Windows 7?

A:Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.

The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

Hey There

First of all: I'm a studend, so I can't speek good english, cause I live in Switzerland (plz write in German if you can )

So my Problem:

I've found a Acer Aspire 5920G with Windows Vista. This was so slow and annoying . So I deleded the whole OS and installed Win 7 Home Premium x64. Now I'm searching some drivers for my Notebook. My biggest Problem is the sound driver.
In Vista, there was a tool called "Acer eAudio Manager". I want to install it, because you can switch the equalizer to movie, music and game (and it sounds awesome with the bassbooster=D). I've downloaded the driver from the website and there was a error:

"This software can only be installed in authorized machine"

what can I do to install this tool? Some other tools, like acer power management or acer enet management, works great.

I thought I ask in this forum, because there were some good topics about the mouspad and synaptic of the 5920G (wich helped me=D)

I hope you understand my question and can help me

Greetings

(And yes, I'm a real Linux fan^^ I've used always Ubuntu. This is the first time that I use Windows )

Try installing the driver in compatability mode.

Read this tutorial.

Previously, this button would open Windows Media Center when pressed. Though it has stopped doing that and don't know why. How can I fix this?
All the other Mediatouch keys are working fine.

My acer active pen is not working consistently. The screen recognizes it sometimes, and other times it does not. The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10.  I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10.  I have updated to all the most recent drivers.  Very frustrating. Any thoughts?

Is this normal for a 6 month old machine..? I can't update windows 10. The message says that there's not enough room to update windows 10, so I buy a 32 gig card....still it says theres not enough space,,,so I try a 32gig usb stick....still no joy.....So I take it back to PC World where I'm treated like a child and told that they won't take it back...they'll just send it back to Acer to have windows 8 put on ...??!  and did I realise it was a cloudbook and NOT a laptop...!! Left the shop with steam coming out of my ears...so, my question is this....Has anyone out there succeeded in updating their windows 10 cloudbook Because that despite having owned and worked with computers for over 30 years I cannot solve this problem....(Nor have I experienced such poor ill informed salespeople as I have in PC World....but that's another story...

So at first i thought it my keyboard wasn't being seen by windows 10. but sometimes after holding the bluetooth button an unknown device appears that appears to be my keyboard. yet when i type in the connection code it doesn't respond and then the device no longer is showing.

Perhaps acer should release a driver update for windows 10 early adopters that fixes their keyboard to work with windows 10, unless there is a simple bug fix?

Hello, im user of Acer Aspire ES1-331. I have been using it from February 2016 with Windows 8.1For a long time Acer Quick Access and Acer Bluelight Shield were working properly but some days ago something happened and: option of sharing WiFi disappeared (it was under "Rozruch do pulpitu") from AQA and it became impossible to turn on ABS. Earlier when i turned it on or off it happened immediately. Now some dots are going around for a few seconds and i get that: http://imgur.com/a/EpfjtIt means : "You cant control that device" . the same happens when i change intensity of ABS - nothing changes however it can write that it changed. On the screen "high" level is turned on but you see that it is a lie. I am using it on Admin accoutn of course.I reinstalled Acer Quick Access but nothing changed and i cant use Acer Bluelight Shield. Rest of options of Acer Quick Acces works (Wifi and Bluetooth).Thanks for reading!

Not sure why this happened but you can try rolling the system back to a previously working configuration. Try the steps to roll it back at http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37096/~/windows-10%3A-restore-windows-from-a-restor.... If Windows Updates ran prior to this happening something could have installed that caused this. Restoring it back like this should resolve the issue.

To start off, this laptop has been horrible since the day I got it. I can't even believe how slow it is; it lags doing even the simplest tasks.That aside; I was prompted to update an AMD Catalyst Radeon (something like that) software, so I did. The screen went black and nothing happened for almost 10 hours.I eventually decided to turn off the power. Now that I turn it back on it's just stuck on "Acer explore beyond limits" screen.It has been like this for days now. I've tried turning it on and off again several times. It's just stuck at that screen.What do I do? How do I fix this? I need this computer for school.

A:can anyone help, Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.
