Anyone still there? I have one idea, my cousin has one acer computer just like mine with the Acer eRecovery Management in good conditions, so I was thinking what about I create a backup of the factory settings to a flash drive?

Wicken,

If it's the exact same model as your's, then you could, but it will not do you any good with your Windows 7. A factory recovery disc will only be able to format your computer and install what was on it when you first turned in on out of the box.

It sounds like you are fine with your drivers.

What features were you wanting other than acer erecovery management and acer epower management? As Jerry posted above, these are usually just bloatware programs that the OEM installs that is really not needed since the OS (Windows 7) already includes them.
  • acer erecovery management - Only needed to do a factory recovery with. Since you have Windows 7 installed instead of your factory default, it's not needed.
  • acer epower management - You could manage your power settings in the Advanced Power Plan Settings feature included in Windows 7 instead.

But i want my computer installed properly with everything, i don't care if i would lose windows 7 because i could upgrade it again. I know that his model is the same as mine so is it possible to create a factory backup?

You're computer will be installed properly without those programs and with just Windows 7 and drivers, but if that's what you would like to do, then yes you should be able to.

How do I create recovery disks?
From Windows, Start > All Programs > System Recovery > Recovery Media Creator. Follow the onscreen instructions - the choice of DVD or CD is normally offered and this is to suit your personal preferences.
If this fails for whatever reason, make a note of any messages you're getting, in case they're needed on here, or when contacting the TechGuys, then first of all check the partition is correct in Disk Management (Start > Run > diskmgmt.msc) by having a look at the partitions on the hard disk. If it appears correct then use NTI, Nero or whatever CD writing program is installed on your PC to test the drive is working. If the drive burns OK, then the problem could be with Recovery Media Creator - in this instance, there is a workaround designed to use Recovery Media Creator to unpack the ISO files, then any CD writing program to burn them.
Workaround:
1. Ensure no disks in the drives
2. Load Recovery Media Creator
3. Select the option to make a DVD
4. When the message pops up asking you to insert a DVD then don't. Instead, load up your burning package (NTI, Nero, or whatever).
5. In that package, choose to make a Data DVD
6. Then you need to select the ISO file to burn - in NTI, this is "Create Disk from ISO Image file" on the file menu, in Nero, the option is in the wizard - or merely using Windows to navigate to the ISO and double clicking it should open in Nero.
7. The ISO is located in C:\Temp. Navigate to this folder, it will be called CD0.iso
8. When you have all the settings confirmed insert the blank DVD. The DVD should burn successfully.
9. Close your writing package and Recovery Media Creator, and delete the CD0.iso file.
If this doesn't work you will need to contact the TechGuys for further diagnostics and possibly a disk to be sent out. It is feasible there might be a known issue for that model, for example if the recovery partition is missing.

Contacted Acer Canada(much better costumer support than my country),they told me everything i need to know and do. They told me that i can't backup the factory settings with a flash drive so i will have to buy DVD-R tomorrow, they told me that i need to use my product key which is at the buttom of my laptop, etc.

Managed to do the repair but had to delete the Acer partition because the recovery files would go there(it was named system) and now everything is back to normal.
