My pc cdrom/dvd drive failed to read my recovery cd


Are you attempting to boot from a bootable disc? A failed drive can cause the other on the bus not to work. Try each one separate set as master or cs (cable select).

Will not boot even from recovery media disks


If you have an XP disk, or even one you can borrow, you might want to try to see if you can boot from that. I have one of those machines that I run with regular XP, I wish you well. A still small voice told me to get the extended warranty, and I am so grateful. Since buying mine in Nov 2004, it's gone in for factory warranty at least 12 different times.

Recovery Problems I need to perform a a recovery on this tablet laptop but the problem is the firewire cd/dvd drive doesn't work. I have two of thes Acer external firewire drives and neither works so it is probably the firewire port on the unit but the wires on these drives are notoriously flimsy. I tried doing a restore from the hidden partition drive that is on every Acer but the Alt F10 function does nothing. I even purchased a usb cd/dvd drive to try to boot the recovery CD from it but it won't recognize the drive. I was thinking I might try making a bootable usb thumbdrive from the recovery CD and then using the bios to boot from it. Running out of ideas though. The machine is still working pretty well it has ton's of corrupted installs on it and needs to be flushed. Can't find the handle though. :-)


The Tablets can be quite difficult to perform a reimage or recovery on as most bios versions on them do not recognise a USB device as bootable. My recommendation would be to obtain a Bootable Floppy disk that contains an imaging program. (GHOST. Powerquest etc). From here you may have 2 options available to you.1. Attempt to recover using the hidden partition on your hard drive.2. Recover from an image located via the network. You will need to ensure that a driver for your network card is also bundled into this install. Once this boothdisk has been created you will need to create a "shared folder" on another PC which contains the image you require. Once the bootdisk has loaded point yourself to the shared folder.Lastly - You may be able to find an updated bios version that allows boot from USB device.

Wow............. First, I'd try to download and install AVG from Filehippo.com. You may have to get a mate to download to a USB drive for you and install from there. Run the anti virus programme (AVG) clean out any virus' you may have contracted. Next, I'd try a system restore (Start - All programmes - Accessories - System Restore) it maybe a little different for Vista but it is there. When restoring, restore to a point over 2 months old or before you had any problems. If that doesn't work, back to the USB, try downloading and installing IE8 from Microsoft. After that, we're looking at restoring windows by re-installing. Before doing that, offload any data you want to keep to DVD's etc. Good Luck.

You Don't Need To Restore BIOS.... You Just Need To Allow To Boot TO Cd/DVD As Your First Boot Option... To Do THis.... Press the ESC or F10 Key As Soon As Powered On.. It will tell you what key to press on the screen as soon as the laptop boots.. one key brings you to your BIOS setup utility, the other key brings you to your boot options menu (ex: boot to HDD0, Boot To CD, Boot To LAN) THen EIther in the Boot Menu or in your BIOS setup you can set the CD/DVD to be your First Boot CHoice...
