Hi there,

If you're talking about setting your system back to factory settings, what you need to do is this:

1 - When you turn your system on and the screen shows the ACER logo, press F2. This will bring you the the BIOS screen.

2 - Have a look through and find the option called D2D Recovery, make sure this is set to Enabled. Highlight it, and look at the right-hand side of the screen. It will give you a list of keys that you need to press, i.e.Ctrl+Alt+F10. Make note of these.

3 - Save the changes and exit. The system will reboot.

4 - When the screen shows the ACER logo, press the keys that you just made a note of. This will take you to Acer's eRecovery program. Follow the instructions to restore to factory.

Hope I have been of help.

Tim

I have an Acer Aspire 5720, ive had it for a year now and it is starting to slow down. I have lost the booklet to it and i need to do a master reset on it. Ive already backed everything up im just finding...


This was taken straight out of the manual for your model, which can be found here.

Acer eRecovery Management
Acer eRecovery Management is a tool to quickly backup and restore the system.
You can create and save a backup of the current system configuration to hard
disk, CD or DVD. You can also backup/restore the factory default image, and
reinstall applications and drivers.

Acer eRecovery Management consists of the following functions:

1 Create backup
2 Burn backup disc
3 Restore and recovery

This chapter will guide you through each process.
Note: This feature is only available on certain models. For systems
that do not have a built-in optical disc burner, plug in an external
optical disc burner before entering Acer eRecovery Management
for optical disc-related tasks.

When using Acer eRecovery Management, you may be prompted to enter the
Empowering Technology password to proceed. The Empowering Technology
password is set using the Empowering Technology toolbar or when first running
Acer eLock Management or Acer eRecovery Management.

Create backup

You can easily create full and fast (incremental) backup images of your system
configuration to hard disk from the main Acer eRecovery Management screen.
Note: Fast (incremental) Backup is only available after a Full
Backup is made.

1 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
2 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select the type of backup you
want to create using Full or Fast.
3 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.

Burn backup disc
Using the Burn Disc page of Acer eRecovery Management, you can burn the
factory default image, a user backup image, the current system configuration,
or an application backup image to CD or DVD.
1 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
2 Switch to the Burn Disc page by selecting the Burn Disc button.
3 Select the type of backup (factory default, user, current system,
application) you would like to burn to disc. Choosing to burn a user backup
will burn your most recently created backup image to disc.
4 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.
Note: Create a factory default image when you want to burn a
bootable disc that contains your computer's entire operating
system as it was delivered to you from the factory. If you wish to
have a disc that will allow you to browse the contents and install
selected drivers and applications, create an application backup
image instead — this disc will not be bootable.

Restore and recovery

The restore and recovery features allow you to restore or recover the system
from a factory default image, from a user created image, or from previously
created CD and DVD backups. You can also reinstall applications and drivers for
your Acer system.
1 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
2 Switch to the restore and recovery page by selecting the Restore button.
3 Select the backup point you would like to restore from. You can also
choose to recover the system from a factory default image, recover from a
previously created CD/DVD or reinstall applications and drivers.
4 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.

Error: 0XC000000C; What's the solution?


My 0xc000000c problem seemed to result from disk surface damage on the restore DVD. I burned a new copy of the restore DVD and the restore then proceeded normally.

Using a DVD copy program that provides an aggressive read method to extract data from damaged disks might help you the most.

Empowering button (e)


Some special buttons need a special utility installed before you can use them. Go to the Acer website and try to find the utility that works with the hot buttons.
You can download the XP Empowering utilities from here:

D2d recovery


Hi,

Unfortunately once your original HDD has been replaced you lose all e-recovery features and there is no-way this can be reversed.

If you could get hold of the image from your old drive you maybe able to write it to your new, its a bit messy though.

The main reason for the "factory default image backup" you have not working now is because a snapshot of the C: drive is stored on D: drive so when you replaced the drive itself you basically made that disc useless for eRecovery features.

Sorry its bad news.

Cheers
