Usually there is a factory image stored on the hard drive and you when you restart your system you hold down either the F8 Key or F10 Key and this should start the recovery wizard. Then you should be on your way

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.

I caNT RESET MY FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS FOR MY ACER ASPIRE 3680 COMPUTER


How to restore your computer to factorysettings without a disk?
If original andfairly new: While Booting Up.

Dell XP = Ctrl+F11
Dell Vista = F8
EEEPC = Esc
Compaq = F11
HP Desktop Vista = F11
Emachine = F10
Acer = Alt+F10

Every manufacture has or uses different Function Key combinations to do a Factory Default Recovery. Also if it didn't come withdisks there is normally a program in the menus to create your own set of recovery CDs. This must be done before you ever putanything on the recovery partition d:, if you used d: for anything you need toremove what you put there or the recovery will not function.(As soon as yourcomputer is turning on press the F10 key and it will take you to the systemrecovery screen, click on the advanced option and click Destructive recoveryand click next. WARNING: before doing this backup anything on your computer youwant to keep pictures, videos, music etc. This will delete everything that didnot come pre-loaded from the factory, so if you have pictures of Aunt Fae'sClass reunion you should probably back those up if you want to keep them.)

My computer dnt want to work after i upgrade it


It is possible that either the new components are not fully compatable with your notebook computer or the components are not making good contact with the rest of the system. Ensure that all components reciently installed are full seated and secure.

It would be a good idea to check that the components that you reciently installed into your notebook are in fact not the reason for the failed boot. Install your old components to confirm this. If for instance the notebook functions well after reinstalling the old components then you can say that the new components are not functioning in your notebook effectively.

Claim warranty support on these new components if this is the case.

Take care!

My computer has 38 viruses


save anything important to a disk or usb drive. restart your computer and press alt f-10, it will start the system restore process to reset your computer to factory settings...erasing whatever viruses you have. although im guessing you were told this by a anti-virus software company that loaded itself onto your computer and wants you to buy their software to get rid of the viruses..its a scam..they put the viruses there in the first place. once you reset your comp, you can go to cnet.com and download avg antivirus free edition. that should take care of those kinds of things.

I have an acer aspire 3680 laptop. It's been my teenage daughters computer to go online for home school. I recently wanted to delete everything back to factory (since they downloaded songs, games, etc..)....


Do you have the recovery disk when you buy the unit? if so, you dont need to burn the cd... insert the recovery cd then reboot from the cd... follow the steps...

If you dont have the recovery then you cant make a recovery cd.. Format Your Laptop with a new version of windows...

this will help...
