This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software
content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps
below to rebuild your C: drive. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data
will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option.
Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.
1 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.
2 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.
3 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.
Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during POST.
To start the recovery process:
1 Restart the system.
2 While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to
enter the recovery process.
3 Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.

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.

if you start the system from either the restore disk that came with your system, or if you have the restore partition, press F10 as you are booting up and that will launch the setup in the restore partition, Select complete restore, this will reformat your drive and restore the system to Factory default.

Acer aspire not loading to windows


Hi,

If you have recovery disc or back up disc put it in and restart the PC and start tapping the F12 key until at the Acer splash screen, you should get now see your boot order, now use your up and down cursor key to highlight the CD/DVD drive and then press enter, this will now start the recovery disc that you put in, just follow the on-screen instructions.

If you don't have a disc, restart the PC and at the Acer splash screen start tapping the ALT+F10 or just F10 and if you have a recovery partition on your hardrive then the recovery program will start up, just follow the on-screen instructions.

Thanks

WILL not resetting to factory settings


You will need to burn a Recovery CD / DVD set from the icon located on the desktop/ In your Acer Home Start utility (The window loading at startup) or from the Start Menu.

Using this disk you will be able to do a System Restore back to original factory setup.

Does anyone know if i need a restore disk for my Acer Aspire AST690 UP926A, or is it built in to my desktop. If so, which F key do i hit? I tried the F8, F10 F11, basically all of them, and none give the...


Usually F1, F10 or F12 are the right ones to hit when your computer starts to get the RESTORE DISC function. You will have to be able to hit the key several time when the computer starts so that it accepts the key press. IF you have a partition that has the restore disc on it, I would restore your computer to its original configuration and then I would mirror your discs onto dvd's or cd's for safe keeping. If your harddrive goes out, you will have nothing to restore your computer with then. When you find the correct F key it may also have the option to make your own restore discs. I would do this as soon as possible.

Reformating


You need to have a windows vista dvd or a recovery/restore cd from Acer. CD-less installation will only work if your computer has a restore image which should be installed in the factory. I dont think acer dekstops have that though.

Just call Acer and ask for a vista dvd or see if you know someone who owns a computer which came with the same version of vista and borrow their dvd.
