Reset acer aspire E1-522-3813 to factory settings?


If there is a password set, you cannot reset to factory unless you know it. Use a system disc and start from scratch.

Acer aspire t180 restore to factory settings on start up


You will need to use the recovery discs that came with the computer and boot from the disc and it will give you the option to restore to factory defaults. If you dont have the discs you will need to contact Acer to get a copy.

Ive forgoten my login password and i dont have a reset disc how can i get back in to my acer aspire l100


I believe probably the easiest and safest way for you is remove your Windows OS Passwords with Windows Password Recovery tools. I found a good one at http://www.reset-windows-password.com last week, and then I downloaded it and used it to remove the lost password within only few minutes. Furthermore, the powerful tool didn't cause a little data lose. It's worth an attempt.

I want to reset it


Unlike other laptops, Acer laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer laptop to factory setting.

Step 1: Before starting your Acer laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer laptop to original factory settings.

Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your laptop data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.

Just been given acer5920 how do yo reset it to factory settings


Keep hitting Alt and F10 keys together when it is first booting to get to the restore routine. This can be tricky so give it a few tries. If the restore partition was deleted this won't work and you would need to reinstall from discs to go back to a fresh install.

Won't Power On!


My brother had the same problem with his machine. On doing some research online I came across this site:

http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&areaid=2&formid=3390#results

It gave the following 2 solutions to the problem. The first one workedfor a while but then we had to try the second and this seems to havesolved the problem.

Solution 1
ssue
No Power or Will not boot
Solution
If the unit will not turn on and has no power:
  1. Verify that the power cord is plugged both into the unit and an electrical socket.
  2. If it is plugged into a power strip or surge protector verify that the power strip or surge protector is turned on.
  3. Try another power outlet.
  4. Unplugthe power cable from the unit, hold the power button on the unit downfor 30 seconds. Release the power button and plug the power cord backinto the unit. Try to turn it back on.
If the unit has power but does not boot into Windows:
  1. Turn the unit off and unplug the power cord from the unit.
  2. Hold the power button on the unit down for 30 seconds.
  3. Release the power button and plug the power cord back into the unit.
  4. Turn the unit on.
