Hi Anthony.  If you did not burn the recovery CD's when the system first arrived, and Acer did not supply any (common these days), the easiest solution may be the following:

  1. Get a copy of keyfinder (http://magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/).  Run it and note down your Windows product key.
  2. Get a copy of the Windows CD from a mate (XP Home or Pro).
  3. When asked for the product key during installation, enter the key that you wrote down earlier.
  4. When installation is complete, you will need to download the drivers to make Windows run optimally.  You can get these from the Acer support site at: http://global.acer.com/support/index.htm

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.

Morning


what type of PC do you have? compatible or branded one? old or new? do you want to erase everything on your PC? or just suddenly the PC is asking for date and time.
