Yvette,Your hard drive is one physical device but is divided in to two virtual drives. One side is for your data and windows to reside one. The other side keeps the factory defaults for your computer in case you get a virus or your windows installation is broken.
It seems like the restore partition for your drive may be erased, corrupt or damaged. Your other data my very well be okay and can possibly be recovered.
If your laptop came with a restore disk, then you can use that to erase your hard drive and re-install Windows and create a new restore partition.
I would suggest contacting Acer support at 1-800-571-2237 for a restore cd.

How do reboot my acer no disk


To access the recovery partition on your Acer computer for a full restore, follow these steps:

1. Power on the Computer
2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the left ALT KEY and press the F10 key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery.
3. Once eRecovery has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings
4. Click OK
5. From here, the eRecovery process will replace all the data on the C:\ partition and restore the factory image.
6. After eRecovery has run, press OK to reboot.

NOTE: All data will be lost during this process and your computer will be brought back to it's original factory state and settings.

If this fails because you have deleted the recovery partition or changed the hard disk due to failure you will require a restore CD.

The Restore CD costs approximately $19.95 (plus taxes) including shipping. If you have a unit from US or Canada, you may purchase the recovery disc from Acer store : Acer Store
If you have purchased the computer in any other country, you may contact Acer support here : Acer Global Support

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.

I WOULD LIKE TO RESTORE TO FACTORY SETTINGS TY


You will loose all data you have put on the computer. When you turn it on right at the beginning there is a black screen and there are a few f key options.
They will flash up with the option when you turned it on, before windows kicks in. Take a look at the user manual to find out for sure.
Press the correct f key before windows starts up, then go through the menus in setup (it will look all crappy and dos like) and find restore factory settings (or something like that) and click yes.
It's a great feature, and will completely kill any virus or **** problems you have had and couldn't get rid of.
Hope this helps. I would appreciate your feed back as I do this for fun not pay.

How to reboot my gateway nv53 laptop to factory without a cd bought this laptop used starting to have problems so i want to erase everything and make it like new


Hi.

The laptop may have a hidden recovery partion which you can access from boot up. Turn the laptop off and then restart it. When you see the Gateway logo hold down Alt and repeatedly press the F10 key. From there follow the on-screen instructions to restore the laptop to factory defaults, it should take about half an hour but could be longer.

Remember to back up any data that you want before you restore the system.

If you can't access the recovery partition then you can use Windows to do it for you. Click on the Start Menu> All Programs>Gateway and then Gateway Recovery Management. In the Gateway Recovery window click on Restore and then select Restore System to factory default and follow the on-screen instruction. The computer will restart and proceed with the restore.
