I have a acer 3000 and the OS quit !! I have tried to do a erecovery but unable to get it started ... the D2D is enabled and I did the Alt+F10 but it does nothing ... is their another way in ?
I looked at the recovery partition and it seems to be ok ( used DOS disk ) but unable to run anything in it.
ok i finally got a error msg on start up
system32/drivers/fastfat.sys missing or corrupt

i do not know if this changes anything but sure could use some help !!
thanks in advance !!

It sounds as if the hard drive may be on the fritz if you are unable to even get into the recovery partition. If you want, you can contact Acer and they'll send you out the actual disks to see if they will install. If they do not, I suspect that the hard drive is in need of replacing.

Did you get or create recovery cd/dvd, You could try that.

If it fails you will have to replace the hard drive
