If you do not have disks from your original purchase, do this:

Click Start>All Programs and look for a Recovery folder or System Recovery folder. Select System Recovery and follow the prompts.

Or...Click Start>All Programs>Accessories> System Tools
See if there is a Recovery (not System Restore) selection available. If there is click it and follow the prompts.

Or...If there is no Recovery program on your computer, reboot it and watch the screen closely. There should be a line that says something like, "For Setup Press F2 For Recovery Press F11".

It can be any F key, but you only have a few seconds to select it. If you miss it, reboot and try it again.

Remember once you run the Recovery, you will have to reinstall all the updates for your operating system as well as any programs you had installed.

Acer Aspire 3680-2762 cannot find the built-in wireless Lan card


The driver for your wireless card should be HERE.

If that doesn't enable it, you can go to the Acer drivers site and download the driver for your system HERE.

You can Select
"Notebook, Ultrabook" --> "Aspire" --> "Aspire 3680"

Then select your operating system from the pop-up and select the Drivers tab.

How can i clear my aspire 3680 and repair so that it is like factory again. Physical memory is at 99% and cannot function


You will need to either use a factory restore disc if you have one, or reinstall windows from a Windows disc.
You can buy restore discs if you dont have one, I have seen them for about £15

I got a virus from internet explorer


If you have a Factory Restore CD from Acer, you can boot the laptop with that in the drive, and it will start you on the process of restoring it to the factory configuration.

I'm trying to restore the computer to factory standards


Open the Acer eRecovery Management Software, and make sure you burn all the disks you need to restore the system. 
Then, using those discs, you should be able to reinstall the system.

Sounds like the backlight has gone. They are a florescent panel and like all florescent lights don't last forever. This is not something that is user serviceable, so it's time to book it in for a replacement panel.
