Hello,

I think on most acers come with a restore partition that is accessible by a key combination on startup.

Try this:

Restart the machine.

Before the windows logo shows you will see some option at the bottom like F5 F8 F10. I think the one you will use will be ALT F10 but it could be F12. Its hard to be exact without the model number but one of those options should start the factory restore. If this doesn't correct it, reply back with your exact model number for specific help.

Also, you can obtain the restore media from the company by contacting them here.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

RETURN A DELL OPTIPLEX GX 60 TO ORIGINAL FACTORY STATE


maybe you have a virus or infection. Maybe you have low RAM Memory. Maybe the hard drive needs to be defragged.

You should just boot from the disk you have and that will walk you thru the install process. Put the Disk in the cd drive. Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and notice the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. Hit that key and let it boot from the CD start the recovery.

After reinstallion, no emachines recovery/original programs/apps


Your recovery software is usually comprised of more than one disk. You should have one windows disk in addition to the eMachines disk(s). Complete recovery requires that you use all the disks, in order to return to original state. If you are missing programs, it is because you did not use all the disks.

Option A: Go here to order a complete set of recovery disks:

You will need your machine serial number to ensure you obtain the correct recovery disks; they are about 20$ plus shipping.

Option B: Use your eRecovery: Restart the computer and when it begins booting up, you have to hit repeatedly/hold down a key to enter the Recovery management menu. As for the key, it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but try the F10 key for starters. If it's not that one, try the F12, or the F8 key. That should get you pointed in the right direction. Just follow the screen prompts, and choose RECOVERY, not RESTORE. Also make sure you choose Recovery without disks.

Reply if you need more help.

Hope this helps.

How do I return our Dimension 5100 Dell Desktop back to it's original state? Lost the recovery CD.


Have you tried restoring your operating system to a previous restore point?
To do this click on start- all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. Then choose a date from the calendar which corresponds to a time before you began to experience problems on your PC. Follow the on-screen instructions to restore your PC to its original state.
Note that a system restore will remove any programs which were installed AFTER the selected restore point date.
Hope this helps.
Regards,
Graemevm

I need to crash my acer 5100 laptop so i can reboot it to the factory state


no need to crash it, j

ust save your important documents on an external drive (or a USB flash), restart the computer, when it is booting click and hold ALT+F10

this will initiate a restore procedure to original factory state, remember all documents and files will be lost, so back them up externally before you do this

I HAVE A ACER LAPTOP 5315 HOW CAN I SET IT BACK TO THE SETTING AS WHEN I BOUGHT IT? PLEASE HELP


Try pressing F11 as you boot up and before the Windows starts (assuming you use Windows). On initial start you'll get some ACER banner, immediatly press F11 several times. This must happen before Windows begins. From there you can RESTORE if your system has this original factory partition. If not then the only way is to have your original SYSTEM RESTORE discs or ask ACER how to get them.

I want to reboot my acer AC711 desktop computer its original settings but i am not sure how to do that.


You would need to revert back to the original backup you would have been prompted to do when you first bought the Acer, if you didn't back up the sytem, you will need an original windows disc to format and reinstall Windows from scratch, this will not include any programmes originally issued with the sytem
