Full destructive recovery on Acer Travelmate 243XC

I would like to wipe everything off the hard drive & restore it to new factory condition. How do I do it? I have done similar on an Advent notebook, but using F8 on the Acer does not seem to give the same options.

You need to reinstall the XP operating system. You'll need a system disk that came with the computer (best solution).

I recommend visiting a forum for your computer. Try this one. I found lots of good advice for my IBM thinkpad on a forum.

Acer travelmate cannot shutdown


If there are to many startup programs, it will effect the shutdown process, also a hard drive that is near full will be a problem, download ccleaner from download.com, this is one of the best cleaners for getting rid of junk from the hard drive, next defrag your hard drive for better performance, if this has no effect, do a system restore on the computer to bring it back to an earlier time before the issues. Finally you can do a full recovery of windows that will bring it back to factory settings, but all personal data will be lost.

How do you do a factory restore on an acer travelmate 5742? where do u start?


Hi,
I see, Follow the details below to be able to do a Factory Restore on your Acer.
  • Click on Start
  • Select and Click Programs
  • Look for Acer Recovery Management and click on it
  • There will be a dialog Box on the Bottom click "Restore"
  • Then click on Restore System to Factory Defaults
  • Then Click YES if you are sure to restore the system and that you have already backed up any personal or important documents
  • After clicking YES click on START to begin the process of restoring the system back to Factory Defaults
Note: If the Original Hard drive Settings/Partition have been deleted or changed it is possible the Restoration to Factory Defaults may not work.
I hope that this will help your restore your machine to Factory Defaults.
Have a nice day,
mvincentc

I need to know how to reset my acer aspire 6930 to factory settings!!!!!


A slightly different model requires pressing Alt+F10 at the start up and following the prompts. This will wipe the hard drive though, so back up everything important first. You can probably still get the data even if it doesn't boot Windows.

Just bought an acer aspire 4741G in the UAE and this Notebook had a problem, someone tried to reinstall the factory default using recovery discs that was created earlier but unfortunately the disc2 of 4...


This seems to be an Operating system issue , best way to resolve this is by Re-Installing the Operating system which will wipe everything in the laptop Hard disc, At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery. The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD. If the hard drive is replaced the system loses its eRecovery features. These features are on the hard drive and cannot be reinstalled

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key

& keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction.

NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer

After using Darik's boot and nuke (DBAN) your hard drive will be wiped clean with little chance of recovery. This also depends on how many passes you used for the disk wipe. More passes = less chance of recovery.

Restore from backup
You can restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup
section) from hard disk, CD or DVD.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 Select the desired restore action and follow the onscreen instructions to
complete the restore process.
