    Default laptop tech help please

    Hi, ive got an acer 8935g laptop that needs recovering. Ive tried to use my self made recovery discs but one of them is scratched so will not work.

    And ive tried to use the recovery partition but when i press alt & f10 at boot, it comes up with ntldr is missing, ctrl alt del to restart.

    The recovery partioin which is hidden shows up in disk management so im assuming its intact, apart from the ntldr.

    Is there anyway i can restore the ntldr for the recovery partition, i have spoke to acer but they said they will fix it for a fee

    please help, as its really frustrating.

    many thanks

    It sounds like you got a virus on your hard drive .Run it in safe mode and try a antivirus of a usb stick or external hard drive . Then run it this should find the virus which is blocking system restart,once done you can restart from a last good configuration .hope this is some help james

    i guess it depends on why you need to use the restore process tbh. Was/is the disc dropping files?..heavily loaded and slow?..infected?..it may be simpler if you were to replace the hard drive and put the original in a usb caddy to work off..if you can replace the missing file(s)..this way you could upgrade the size of your hard drive!!

    hi bud i had the same problem think it was a virus that did it as it was mega slow, go on to acer web site and down load all the drivers,is your ethernet ok or has it got a yellow icon next to it when you have got all the drivers if you have a windows disc reformat it and install the drivers if no windows disk try going into device manager and try updating the drivers put the driver files on a disc and tell the pc to look on the disc when you try updating the ethernet etc
