Using the serial number on the laptop you should be able to find the original configurarion from the Acer support pages. Download the programs and drivers to another computer and burn them to cd. This will not include the operating system so you should have that before wiping the hard drive. Download DBAN, the cd iso version, and burn that to cd. Download AVG, Spybot search and destroy, Ad-aware and Spywareblaster from Download.com and burn the installation files to cd.

1. Wipe the drive using the DBAN cd.
2. Install your operating system
3. Install the drivers from the cd
4. Update the operating system
5. Install the anti-malware programs from the cd

The laptop has an eRcovery partition the will restore it to original condition.

Acer eRecovery


At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 (at the same time you would press F2 to enter the BIOS) to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery.
· The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD.
· The password by default is 000000 (6 zeros) and it is displayed when you are asked for the password.
· Users are able to change the password in this mode for eRecovery only.
· The system can recover from the hidden image on the hard drive (PQService partition) or from CD/DVD media.
· It is possible to reload from the factory style CDs/DVD or the snapshots that the Windows version of eRecovery creates.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Reset travelmate 2300


You need the original recovery disks that came with the unit as there is no built in recovery. If you have none then you will need to purchase a copy of windows or contact your regional Acer office whereby you can purchase a new set of original disk (bearing in mind this will be XP as you will not be licensed for any other version).

Acer Travelmate 2300 memory all used


Disk space is not RAM.
RAM is a memory where operating system and software keeps their current state.
All disk space used is a message about the harddrive on your laptop.
You will have to buy bigger harddrive and change it (you will have to move or reinstall system) or buy an external USB harddrive and move some data onto it keeping the original system in place.
