Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

So I haven't been able to connect to the internet and have several problems with my Acer Aspire 5720. So I've decided to restore it to factory settings, so that hopefully the problems will be fixed. I go to restore and it asks for a password. I never had to put in a password before nor has it ever asked me for one so I was wondering, is there another password I can enter or any other method I could do that'll allow me to restore the laptop back to factory settings?

    Can you be more specific? What Operating System are you running and what sort of internet do you have (wired/wireless)?

Forgotten password


Hello:

If you want to restore your laptop to factory setting: You should insert your "recovery disk to the CD/DVD ROM. and then shutdown the laptop.

Now; boot your laptop using the recovery disk(boot the laptop from CD/DVD rom) This will no need to input the password: its either you have to restore the system without deleting the existing files or you have to partition and format the hard drive. formatting hard drive you will end up with fresh copy of system files. same as first day when you purchase the laptop.

be sure to install the driver if there's any.

However; if you tend to do by supplying the password. iguess all factory installation has no password. you have to strike the enter without supplying any password.

may this help,
