SOURCE: reboot to its factory settings
do you mean reload the operating system ?
if yes and if you didn't delete the recovery partition in your harddrive, you can press alt+f10 during boot, it will guide you to the reload operating system.

Acer sent me these instructions.
The other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts
Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:
“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”
If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.
If you see this:
“Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”
Then it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on your screen after a short pause..
In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.
The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs.
This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine.
If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.

Most acer laptops have a special recovery feature..
While starting up your computer, when you see the first acer screen, start pressing alt and f10 at the same time, over and over..
You may have to attempt this a few times to get it to work.. If you see the windows screen, it has not worked, restart the computer again, and keep trying.
If you get it to work, it will give yo an option to restore factory settings. which will reinstall windows and make the computer like new.
Keep in mind this will erase all your personal files and pictures so you may want to save them first.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much for your prompt reply, its restoring now. Your assistance is much appreciated. Cheers"
Follow these instructions carefully:
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.
I copied the above from an Acer manual, and it works on my own system, which is not the same model as yours. But you must understand that this will basically restore your computer to the condition in which it was when you bought it, unpacked it from the box, and followed the instructions to set up a new computer.
This will give you your system back as if it were brandy new, but in most cases, anything you created, like DOCs, or XLS files, again … ANYthing you created since buying this computer, will also probably not be there any more.
You will have a pristine, clean as new, computer system.
Be careful, be absolutely sure this is what you want to do, and go ahead and do it.
