SOURCE: restore factory settings
there are 2 ways for doing this
1) Fast and easy without backup disk just do this
Acer: When you turn on the laptop and see the Acer logo screen, hold the ALT key and press the F10 key (you need to do this before the Acer logo disappears).
2) If the method above doesnt work u can do it thru backup disk u have got when u purchased ur laptop u shud have made it thru Erecovery software.
Pls rate me FIXYA for help !

Insert your Operating System recovery CD then try to turn off the computer, remove the cables and battery. Then press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Reinsert the cables and battery. Press and hold F12 while turning on the computer. Select the CD/DVD ROM under boot device menu. Press any key to boot from CD. Then select English > then select Custom > then select Disk 0 partition. On that manner, your system will install fresh copy of your operating system and will restore your pc in factory default..

Have you tried restoring the computer to the original factory configuration? If you did not have the problem when you first received the laptop, the restoration will fix it. (Page 70 of the Setup Guide -- Factory Image Restore).
If the restoration fixes it, that means that some configuration change caused the problem, most likely an update. If you keep track of future updates you can discover which one triggers the problem when it recurs.
If the restoration does not fix it and the computer did not originally have the problem, that means that a hardware problem has developed.
