Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Having problems restoring my acer 5100 notebook.need help please!

\015 I tried to do the alt f10 on the acer screen at first but it doesn't come up asking me for my password or anything like that or to restore it comes up like a system boot mode screen or something that doesn't even have anything showing me where to put my password in to restore?need help please...\015

Answers :

Hi there.
Log into Windows and press Acer Empowering Key to launch, you can use that utility to restore the system.
If you have a pqservice partition but alt f10 does not work there is a\015\012file called mbrwrwin.exe and rtmbr.bin which is needed to install the\015\012acer missing magic code all you have to do is type the following on a dos prompt. mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin it adds the file to a slot
\015\012Once you have done that reboot the computer and wait it takes a while\015\012to restart, it then it seems to find new hardware (dont know what it finds)\015\012then do a reboot and then you can alt f10 to your hearts content.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
Are you trying to reinstall your system to the way it was when you first bought it?
\015\012If so, you will need your restore CD's that came with your laptop.
\015\012To boot from CD, Press the F12 key and follow onscreen instructions.
\015\012Good Luck.

I have an ACER notebook Aspire 4920 and, I think, because an update I installed (prompted I may add by my laptop!) it is now not working. When I turn it on it goes into Startup Repair mode and then tells me it can't fix the problem automatically. It then gives me the options to either: System Restore (not actually an option as when I go on it it tells me I can't do this!), Windows Complete PC restore (which i can't do as have no Backup), Windows Memory restore, or command prompt.
