Please check if you have system recovery in you computer. If its assembled or if somebody formatted it before so most probably you dont have recovery in your computer.
If you dont have recovery then only way to do is to backup your files and reinstall windows in it
Hope it helps !! Please Rate

    Have a virus. How do I do system restore to factory settings?


    Hi

    Have you any anti virus installed on your laptop ??

    doing a factory restore is a bit drastic if having a virus is the only problem

    there are several free anti virus programs on the net that you can download
    that is if your laptop is still usable

    free avg is quite a good one just be careful and read each stage of install so that you don't install some of the stuff that they wanna give you along with the free avg


    If you still wanna do a system restore back to factory settings
    make sure you save any files or pics that you don't want to loose on a spare hard drive or pen drive
    or even burn them to disk
    that is given the fact that your laptop is still working

    DID you do any back up disks when you first had the laptop this would be useful if you did

    Some acer's have a recovery partition
    i think its some where like
    start
    programs
    acer empering technology
    acer erecovery manager
    restore or recover something like that
    click on it
    follow the on screen instructions
    windows will restart and hopefully do the recover

    good luck
    but i would try to remove the virus before a system recovery

    How do you restore an acer 5738 to its factory settings


    Unlike other laptops, Acer laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer laptop to factory setting.

    Step 1: Before starting your Acer laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

    Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

    Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

    Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer laptop to original factory settings.

    Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

    Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your laptop data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.
