Netbook reset


Here is how to restore any Acer or Gateway machine to factory settings:

When you power the netbook on, as soon as you see the Acer logo, hold the Alt key down and start tapping the F10 key repeatedly (takes about 10 seconds to trigger the restore process. It may take a few tries to get the timing right but I promise you this is the way.

The hard drive on your netbook has a hidden restore partition which contains the necessary files to do the factory restore. It is possible that this partition was erased when Ubuntu was installed. If you can't get the Alt+F10 to work, then you will have to contact Acer to get a recovery USB drive.

Hope this helps!

Acer netbook does not recognize password

Only way to reset the password is Re-Installing the OS At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery. The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD. If the hard drive is replaced the system loses its eRecovery features. These features are on the hard drive and cannot be reinstalled
  • All of your personal data files and applications are erased during the recovery process.

  1. Remove all CDs or DVDs from the optical drives.
  2. Turn off the computer, using the normal Windows shut down process.
  3. After the computer is turned off, disconnect all USB devices except the keyboard and mouse. This includes USB devices such as a printer, scanner, removable storage, or camera.
  4. Turn on the computer. After the Gateway BIOS logo appears, press ALT+F10. The easiest method is to hold down the ALT key and repeatedly press the F10 key.
5.Windows loads files.
  1. The Please wait a moment screen is displayed.

  2. In the Restore from factory default dialog box, click Next.

  3. In the Destination Disk Information dialog box, click Next.
    All you need to do is follow the Onscreen Instructions its a Self explationary process

Cant find web cam on my acer aspire one

Go into the device manager and see if its listed in there. If its not then go here:

Choose netbook, aspire one, then whatever the model number of your laptop is, then you will see a list of all the hardware in your laptop. These are the drivers for your hardware.

Look for the camera in the list and download the software and install it. If you see more then one listing for the camera, download and install each one.

Hopefully the camera will install properly. If it doesn't then the built in camera is bad and would need to be replaced.
