How can i factory set my acer extensa 5220


Hi,
To restore your laptop you need the restore cd/dvd that came with your laptop when you bought it.
Please be adviced that restoring your laptop will cause you to lose all your data. Backup any data you would like to keep, to an externad drive or usb.

To restore your laptop do the following:
Insert the restore cd in your cd/dvd drive and restart your computer.
When you see the message "Press any key to boot from cd" press enter.
Then follow the on screen instructions to restore your laptop.

Regards,

The back cover of my Acer Extensa 5220 laptop is cracked


It would cost about $100-200 for parts.

That doesn't include the repair time. For me it would take about 10-15 minutes.

For a novice about 1-2 hours.

That's the jest of it.

New laptops $200-400 for decent rigs.

Acer aspire 5220 booting problem


Try connecting to an external monitor. If it displays on the external monitor then the LCD is probably dead. If it doesn't display on the external monitor, its a problem with the video card.

Blank screen on start up on Acer Extensa 4620


Did you switch displays to the external video? Try hitting the Fn key and whichever function key at the top of the keyboard has a little TV screen icon over it at the same time.
