Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

My aspire notebook want to reformat but theres no cd or dvd drive on it

Answers :

It should be a recovery partition on your hard disk. Try this :
\015\012Turn on your laptop. On boot, press <F2> to enter BIOS. To 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 Enabled. Save and reboot. While the Acer logo is shown, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to enter the recovery process. Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.
\015\012You could miss this process, if it is so try again.
\015\012If there is no recovery partition on the hard drive you need a CD revovery kit for your model. Contact Acer support team and ask for it. If you are lucky you will get one for free or you will pay a very affordable price (10-20$). If not, try to find a friend that has the same version of Windows as yours and you can use it with your activation key (you find it on a label on the bottom of the laptop).Also, you have to purchase an external (USB) optical drive (CDROM/DVDROM)
It must be the acer recovery partition trying to reinstall windows, for some reason windows isnt starting, so its trying to start the acer recoverytool.
