Press Alt and tap F10 only when the acer screen appears.

If this does not work and open the recovery program then is it possible that you formated over the driver and partition when you loaded XP?

If not the make sure that D2D recovery is enabled in the bios settings. You can check this by pressing F2 on boot and going into bios.

How. Do I take acer touch screen PCs to factory settings


Hi. Most computers have a hidden partition on the hard drive that contains all the factory default settings and system software that originally came with the PC, including the operating system (like Windows 7/8,etc.). There is a simple method to restore your computer to factory default settings using this restore partition. Please be sure to backup any data or files that you want to save on a USB flash drive or backup media first.

I presume that your computer is an Acer Aspire One model touch-screen PC. For this model of computer, in Windows, go to "Start," then "All Programs," then "Acer Empowering Technology."

Then, you want to click on "Acer eRecovery Management."Then, click on "Restore," then lastly, "Restore System To Factory Default." Your computer will then reboot/restart, and launch the Recovery Utility.

When prompted, click "Yes," then "Yes" again to restore/revert your Acer computer to its original factory default state. Please do note that if you deleted the recovery partition from your hard drive by formatting it, you won't be able to use this recovery option. If that is the case, you should be able to use the original system DVD's that came with your computer to restore it to its original factory defaults.

I do hope that I have helped you. Please feel free to ask further questions if you still have need. Thank you.

Restore to factory default


Most Acer M1640's can be restored to factory settings using the following method:

1. Start with the computer off.
2. Power on the unit, this should cause the Acer POST screen to appear.
3. During the Acer POST screen, press and hold the Alt key on your keyboard, and tap the F10 key on your keyboard.
4.If timed correctly, this should cause the unit to go to a black screen that says "Windows is loading files...".
5. After the "Windows is loading files" screen you should be in Acer e-recovery management. At this point follow the on-screen instructions to restore the unit to factory defaults.

Restore factory settings for a acer aspire 5315 laptop


acer dont have a restore, you are prompted when you first boot it up when purchased to make a back up set of discs, i assume you didn't, you will need to lend somebodies XP or Vista Disc , but use your own product code on the underside of your notebook to reformat and reinstall windows.
