Need factory settings aspire 5920
Laptop computers can be wonderful devices, except when the need to troubleshoot arises. Acer laptops are no different. A quick way to fix many problems with an Acer laptop running Windows is to reset it to factory settings. Resetting your Acer laptop to factory settings can eliminate slow operating, registry problems, virus problems, spyware issues and more. And a factory reset of your laptop may reduce the need for a full reinstallation of Windows.
1.Back up all necessary data to an external device such as a disk, flash drive or hard drive
2.Make sure all programs are closed and shut down your Acer laptop by opening your Start menu and selecting "Shut Down" from the options for shutting down and restarting windows.
3.Detach any external hardware such as an external hard drive or printer.
4.Press the Power button to boot your Acer laptop.
5.Press "Alt + F10" on your keyboard when the Acer screen appears at the start of the boot up process. Wait a moment while Windows loads the reset files.
6.Select "Restore System from factory default" in the Acer eRecovery Management window.
7.Click "Next" on the next screen to continue. Click "Next" on the following destination information window. This will pop up a notice telling you that resetting your Acer laptop will erase all data and restore the laptop to its original settings and configuration.
8.Click "OK" in the notice window to proceed with resetting your Acer laptop.
9.Wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

Acer Aspire 5920G startup issues
If unit is not booting you cannot use the system restore tool. And if you have not created back up disks .................
At least you did not have the machine long enough to really load it up so reloading it will not be so bad. However, ......
Maybe you picked up some computer clap? Using another machine download the malware bytes program onto a usb stick and then boot up your vista machine via the F 8 prompt (desktop + networking) during bootup.
Then when on simple desktop, insert usb stick and navigate to the file downloaded and run the app from there. Good luck!!!

5920 will not turn on, adaptor green light brinks
The Aspire 5920 and most other acers with the same logic board style are notorious for component level power issues. The first possibility is a severed connection in the DC connector cable. Its somewhat rare but it happens. The connection is broken right where that cable meets the back pin of the DC connector. This can be easily resoldered and your problem is solved. Becuase the AC adapter is blinking this makes me think that there is a shorted component on the logic board. If you have access to a multimeter set it to check voltage, remove the large panel on the bottom case (4 long screws). Then remove the fan (3 small screws) and the heatsink (4 custom screws). Once these are all removed you can look at the back side of the DC connector and see the cable. The cable consists of 4 wires, 2 black, and 2 brown. Black are ground lines, and brown are power. Using your multi meter (1 lead to ground and 1 lead to power) see what voltage you have right at the logic board side connector for this cable. If this is not the cause of your problem you should see ~19v. If yousee less, or nothing at all, its likely that either your AC adapter is bad, or the cable has been severed on the DC connector side. The last possibility (the one I feel is the cause for your issue) is that you will see a pulsating voltage. This means you have a capacitor short on the logic board. There are quite a few possible caps on the board that could short out like this. The picture below shows the 2 most commonly shorted caps on this logic board. Use your meter to check continuity between both sides of these caps, if you gen full continuity then the cap, one in line with it, or another in the circuit is shorted. Remove both of these caps and then meter the 2 pads beneath them in the same way you metered the caps. If you do no receive full continuity anylonger, then 1 or both of those caps were the cause for the short. You can also meter the caps themselves off of the logic board and if you receive full continuity the cap/s are bad. If you have removed the caps and still register a short on the logic board, then its time to strip the machine down and remove the logic board, repeat these steps with all ceramic capacitors (like the ones in the picture) until you no longer register a short. Just as a side note, after removing components from logic boards you must wait until it cools to room temperature otherwise your mulitmeter readings may be inaccurate.
