Did you create recovery dics when you first bought it? If not, than you can order them directly from acer. As for restoring from the D drive.
 I think this is the method you are looking for.

  1. Click 'start'
  2. all programs
  3. accesories
  4. system tools
  5. back up
  6. click 'nest' select the second option 'Restore Files and settings'
Any problems let me know. Tell me how you made out, and please rate my answer.

I accidently installed windows 8 pro on my Acer aspire E 15 which already had windows 8.1. Now how do I restore my laptop back to its original windows 8.1?


Once you install other version of windows Operating system without formatting, your Operating System and files before would goes to drive C:\windows.old folder and you can backup your files there by opening users folder, but you cant restore your system to your old 8.1 version once you overwritten it ,But you can fix this by reformatting your laptop/netbook or desktop using your original 8.1 OS installer or contact your acer aspire distributor for genuine installer, but don't forget to backup your files at folder i mentioned above.

Hi, I want to do a factory restore on my acer 3690 aspire. where can I get the cd to do it ?


The below procedure will only work if you still have your original hard drive in the PC and have not reformatted or reinstalled windows from another media source.

On bootup you will see a message on the Acer splash screen to get into "SETUP".
This will take to your Acer BIOS and it is accomplished by either hitting the F2 or DEL F2 key.

Once inside the BIOS navigate to the menus and make sure that D2D option recovery is enabled. If you do not see this D2D option then you can exit and should not have to do anything else.

Restart the PC again, hold down the ALT and the F10 key altogether, which allows to start the recovery partition and load your system to factory default.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

you can do a erecovery to fix this,
altho you stand to lose whats already on the drive,
It can be done providing,,,,,,
eRecovery should take about 45 min approx...

If the system has the original install on the hard drive
You can go to my Tips and Tricks link here ....

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4498094-erecovery_reinstall_acer_factory

If the hard drive has been replaced and another OS has been installed then you can't do eRecovery
on this unit but you can download all the drivers from Acer and do a backup when done installing the drivers and applications from acer'
Burn this back up to disc or put on a memory stick,

You may need it in the future ......

I want to take my acer 3690 back to when i bought it


There is no way to roll back from Vista to XP. If you still have an XP CD Key you can re-install using a windows disk of the same type using your code. All the drivers should be downloaded first to a CD from the manufacturers web site. Plus any data you would like to keep.

Reformatting hard drive


there is not 2 drives on your laptop. The single drive is partitioned into 2 parts.
When you re-install XP, be sure to re-install on the first partition (it will ask you during the setup). If you re-format the entire drive all will be lost.

I thing you do not need alt you just press f10 and select the drive you want to boot from.

Alt is defined in the software to jump to the ACER E Technology software suite. If you have wiped the hard drive clean without saving a backup of the application, you are out of luck. If you saved an applications backup, then re-install the Etechnology software suite.
