Goto Start > (All) Programs > Empowering Technology > Acer eRecovery Management. This will bring up a screen requesting a password. the default password is "000000", it will prompt you to create the factory recovery disk from the hidden partition on your hard drive. You can then use the disks you have created to bring the computer back to factory.

Changed bios to set to factory reset with recovery disks


??Why were you messing with the bios?? Has absolutely Nothing to do with a restore!!!1-computersurgeons.com for a restore disc set. 2-Most important part, restore is useless without the correct bios. U R N over your head, but wimsbios.com for bios, flasher & u need a boot disc, hope it has a floppy, otherwise you have to make an iso boot disc with the correct bios & flasher on it(preferrably an cd-rw so it can retrieve bad bips on) good luck...u gonna need it.

Look to see if there is a drive partition marked recovery. If there is then you can run the restore program by pressing F12 during boot up.

Acer aspire t180 restore to factory settings on start up


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.

How do you reset a windows xp to factory settings


some pc's have a recovery option when you first turn it on, maybe by pressing F11. This will give you an option to restore to factory settings. Follow the instructions. If you don't have a recovery option you may be able to buy the recovery discs from the pc manufacturer.

If the pc doesn't have the recovery options, you need to reinstall windows from the windows disc. If you don't have a windows disc you will need to buy one from your local retailer or on-line store. Most pc's that don't have recovery discs will prompt you to make them when you first turn the machine on.

No disc.how to reset to factory setting


No problem - there are a couple options.
1. Install a new copy of Windows. You can buy this from any computer store, even Target will have this. Once you put the disc in it will walk you through reinstalling Windows which will erase everything and bring it back to a "new" state.
2. Contact Dell to see if they can send/sell you the recovery disc that will restore your computer back to factory settings. You can reach Dell by visiting http://support.dell.com/.
Thanks!

Resetting


By factory settings, I am assuming you are reffering to the Operating System, or Windows XP.  If this is not a correct assumption, please let me know.
Unfortunately, there is no way to reset the PC to a factory default configuration with out the discs provided by the manufacturer.  Those discs not only contain the operating system install files, but also any drivers that are used that are specific to models made by that manufacturer.
Newer PCs skip the need of discs by creating a "Recovery Partition" on your hardrive.  Think of this as a snapshot taken of your PC just as it leaves the manufacturer.  It is possibly to boot to this partition, erase you current configuration, and restore this "factory default" configuration.  Unfortunately, this option is not available on your specific PC model.
It is possible to re-install the Windows operating system by using any type of Windows install media (CD,DVD,etc), but you will also have to download any special drivers (video card, sounds card, printer) from the manufacturer's web site.
