You will need to use the recovery discs that came with the computer and boot from the disc and it will give you the option to restore to factory defaults. If you dont have the discs you will need to contact Acer to get a copy.
Well I have 2 options for you: Option 1: If u have ur windows disk then just boot ur computer, and then put in the discs to reinstall widows and it should be restored to factory setting Option 2:Press and Hold "ctrl-F11" and it should be restoed to factory settings ,let me know if this works, hope it does : )
Just reset it to factory settings. Sometimes improper keying inputs may make the system control confused. Resetting it to fatory settigs will rectify it. to reset it to factory settings do the following.
• Press the (>>') button (in front panel) for more than 5 seconds with no disc
inside. All settings including the password will revert to the factory
settings. • When the factory default settings are restored, all the user data stored in
the persistent storage will be deleted. OK.
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.
