How. Do I take acer touch screen PCs to factory settings


Hi. Most computers have a hidden partition on the hard drive that contains all the factory default settings and system software that originally came with the PC, including the operating system (like Windows 7/8,etc.). There is a simple method to restore your computer to factory default settings using this restore partition. Please be sure to backup any data or files that you want to save on a USB flash drive or backup media first.

I presume that your computer is an Acer Aspire One model touch-screen PC. For this model of computer, in Windows, go to "Start," then "All Programs," then "Acer Empowering Technology."

Then, you want to click on "Acer eRecovery Management."Then, click on "Restore," then lastly, "Restore System To Factory Default." Your computer will then reboot/restart, and launch the Recovery Utility.

When prompted, click "Yes," then "Yes" again to restore/revert your Acer computer to its original factory default state. Please do note that if you deleted the recovery partition from your hard drive by formatting it, you won't be able to use this recovery option. If that is the case, you should be able to use the original system DVD's that came with your computer to restore it to its original factory defaults.

I do hope that I have helped you. Please feel free to ask further questions if you still have need. Thank you.

My acer aspire m1641 lost operation system,


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Your hard drive is corrupted - virus, bad driver file, etc... You may need to reformat and re-install Windows or operating system. Before you do that, remove the harddrive and "slave" it on another computer to backup you data. The other computer should be able to discover the corrupted harddrive allowing you to do the backup. Then you can proceed with the repair or reformat.

I want to take all my information off of my old Pavilion50n computer and reboot it. To give it to a school. I just bought a new one and want to be sure all my personal info. is off of my old one.


You can purchase software like Drive erase for about $30.00. That will wipe your drive completely clean. Then you will have to reinstall Windows on the computer. You will need a complete OEM version of Windows to reinstall. You might have to reformat you drive before you can reinstall Windows.

I need to know how to avtivate the system restore for the computer for a ACER ASPIRE 4520 sincei dont have the disc??


This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software
content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps
below to rebuild your C: drive. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data
will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option.
Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.
1 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.
2 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.
3 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.
Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during POST.
To start the recovery process:
1 Restart the system.
2 While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to
enter the recovery process.
3 Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.

Windows will not start


You might have either a bad hard drive or a corrupted Windows installation (which could be due to a bad hard drive). You can try starting Windows in safe mode (press the F8 key when the Compaq logo comes up after you turn the power on, and pick Safe Mode from the list of startup options) if it will let you. Then try scanning the disk for errors.

You can also try using the Windows recovery console (assuming you have XP) to repair your installation. Boot the computer from the Window operating system CD (Compaq systems came with one; if you don't have one you can probably borrow one from somebody). After setup loads everything it needs you pick the "R" option to try repairing Windows. The "chkdsk /r" command sometimes is able to correct problems so that Windows can start again.

If necessary you can try restoring the original software, and replacing the hard drive if the disk problems continue.
