Put the windows XP installation disk in your cd drive and start the disk drive . Follow all the instructions as they appear. You will be asked about formatting the HDD or making a partition. to make things simple, do not partition the HDD, formate and install XP on NTFS. Follow these instructions and you should be alright. You can always get back to me if you find you are having trouble. As this is your first time installing XP, I would stay with the computer and keep an eye at what is going on. Keep a log as you are installing XP, both for your self and in case you need to get back to me. That way I will know what you have done an what has proberbly gone wrong.

You need to have the windows XP installation disc.  your going to want to back up all files onto some other drive (e.g. usb) and then reinstall the files.  this will delete everything off of your computer so thats why everything must be backed up.  if you dont have the installation disc, let me know and i can get you the files another way

Need to factor reset,|NOT REBOOT, for acer aspire 3630 windows xp


Hi and welcome to Fixya..

Reinstalling Windows XP on an Acer Aspire 3000 is fairly straightforward. You may need to reinstall Windows XP due to hardware failure, a virus infection, major hardware changes or a hard drive upgrade. Whatever the reason, you can do the reinstall yourself at home. The reinstall will take anywhere from 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the size of your hard drive. Be aware that reinstalling Windows XP will format your hard drive, getting rid of all data on, so you'll want to back it all up on a media device.
  • Step 1
Back up all data on your computer before reinstalling.
  • Step 2 Insert the Windows XP disk and restart your computer.
  • Step 3 Press any key when prompted to begin running the disk.
  • Step 4 Press F8 to agree to the terms of service.
  • Step 5 Choose the partition you want to reinstall Windows XP on. This is usually "C:" for most users.
  • Step 6 Choose the type of format. You can choose either "Quick" or "Full" for NTFS systems. A quick format only takes a few minutes less than the full format.
  • Step 7 Wait for the format to complete. The Windows XP installation wizard will begin. You will be asked to choose your time zone, computer name, and to input any network information. Otherwise, the reinstall will run by itself.


  • I hope this helps
