    I too am experiencing the very same problem. I have a Travelmate 2310. I have restored it using the Acer Recovery partition,so it's back to it's factory state. However, during the XP Setup process, the keyboard and touchpad become non-responsive, and the only way to shut the laptop off, is to remove the power and battery.



    Upon switching back on, the CMOS settings need to be re-set. The CMOS battery is not bad - it's a brand new battery.



    Some other notes here.... Before I restored to factory settings, everything worked fine in Safe Mode, but not in normal mode (even if I turned off all startup items and ann non-MS services using MSConfig).



    I have used Micro-Scope to run a full diagnostics on ALL of the hardware, and everything passed all of the tests..... So, it would appear that this is a Windows XP issue (or at least with some of the pre-installed manufacturers software)

    If you forgot your windows admin password, I suggest you to remove it with windows password reset tools. I removed my windows password successfully with Windows Password Reset 9.0 yesterday. You can have a tryhttp://www.reset-windows-password.com

Reformatting an Acer Travelmate 2310


Enter the first recovery cd, and choose the option to format the hard drive and install a fresh copy of windows. Then enter the second recovery cd when it asks. It should have an option of formatting the drive when you put in the recovery cds. There is not that much that can go wrong, since you want to delete everything anyway. Hope that helps :).
