    Default Urgent Help, Restore Acer 5630 back to manufacture state

    Hi all

    Is there a way to restore my Acer 5630 back to its original manufacture state??

    The hidden partition is still in place, in the "Computer Management" under "Administrator tools" it show as EISA configuration and nothing set on the File system.

    Now i cannot restore using that hidden image due to missing eRecovery.

    Is there a way to reboot the laptop and trigger the eRecovery during bootup so i can restore my laptop bk with the hidden image?

    Thx regards

    Once you still have the recovery partition in place then it is quite straight forward. All you have to do is press ALT+F10 at the post screen. The post screen is the first screen you see when you turn your notebook on, i.e the screen that says "Acer". Once you press those 2 keys together the notebook will boot to the recovery partition and allow you to start the recovery process to restore your computer to factory spec.

    Hope this helps you...

    I tried that but it didnt take me to the recovery partition. Is it possible the MBR in the hiden partition got corrupted?

    I Pressed that all i get is constant bleeping from the laptop and took me to the OS

    If it is still under warranty, send it back to Acer. I'm having the same issues, 2nd time around, and the Acer tech I spoke with said it was hardware issues. Goodluck.

    As far as I know when you have the recovery partition and ALT + F10 doesn't work then yes Acer's Special MBR (that allows for alt+f10 functionality) has become corrupted or over written in some way. There is a way to fix that, but as the previous posted said if your notebook is still under warranty then you are better off contacting acer and having them fix it for you, no sense you doing it when you have a nice warranty there.

    I have the same issue.

    Send it back! Mine is backed up right this minute as I type this waiting for Fedex to pick-up. If you keep pressing the alt+f10 buttons, it will bring you up to the recovery. Wait to your laptop beeps several times. Only thing is Windows will not finished installing and then it is down for good.

    That is the exact same thing that has just happened with mine. I think it is the HDD is gone, but won't know until Acer takes a look at it.
