SOURCE: restore to factory settings

I suggest you use Acer eRecovery Management. As most personal computer manufacturers are not giving out CD restoration disk/s with the computer, they are putting it on the harddrive instead.

When the computer comes straight from the factory, and is turned on for the first time, you are asked if you wish to make backup disks.
These are your Restoration Disks.

[After you restore your laptop back to factory default settings, you can still make Restoration Disks. This option is located in Acer's eRecovery Management also]


There are two ways to access eRecovery Management.

1.Access if you have Windows running.
2.Access if you can't get to Windows.

Access if Windows is open:

Click on Start>Hover your mouse cursor on All Programs>Click on Acer Empowering Technology>then click on Acer eRecovery Management.

You will now see a small window, with Password Needed, in the header.
Go down and click on Setup.
[Upon the first time of using eRecovery Management, you are required to set up a password. This deters unauthorized access from anyone but you]
In the next windows click on, Create a New Password.

Now click on, Restore, at the BOTTOM of the eRecovery window.
[You will see Backup, Burn Disc, Restore, at the bottom]
In the Password window type in your user password you created.
Now go below and click on OK.

Access if Windows isn't accessible;
Recovery at System Bootup:

After you power on your computer, and the Acer logo is shown, immediately press the ALT key, AND the F10 key AT THE SAME TIME.
(Not 'shouting', impressing a point)

There are three options on the Hidden partition main page. Click on, Restore system back to factory default. Enter the user password you made.

BE Advised!
You are going back to the way the computer, (Laptop), came from the factory! Any Programs or Applications you have downloaded to your laptop will be GONE!
Any Programs or Applications you yourself have installed, will be GONE!
Anything you have saved in your My Documents, (Documents if we're referring to Win Vista), will be GONE!
[My Pictures, My Music, My Videos, and any documents you have saved or created]

If they weren't there when the laptop came from the factory, they will be gone!

For further information straight from Acer Support, here is the PDF file download link, for Acer eRecovery Management version 2.5,

Hard reset


You may need to restore your Acer computer to its factory defaults if a virus damages operating files or if the system begins acting erratically for unknown reasons.
Restoring an Acer to factory defaults returns the computer to its original state when first purchased.

Click on the Start menu.
Then, select all programs, Acer Empowering Technology and Acer eRecovery Management.
If this is the first time you have opened the program it will prompt you to set up a password and create a backup CD.
Click the Restore button and select the option that reads "Restore system to factory defaults".

Wait for the computer to finish the restore process and reboot.
Restoring for the Boot Screen

If your computer will not boot up properly, you can attempt to reach the restore option by pressing the Alt button and the F10 button at the same time.


When the eRecovery menu appears, choose "restore system to factory defaults".

Wait for the recovery process to complete and the computer to restart.

When I go to start menu to shut down and press shut down it will just reboot and will ot shut down


Step 1:
Laptop computers can be wonderful devices, except when the need to troubleshoot arises. Acer laptops are no different. A quick way to fix many problems with an Acer laptop running Windows is to reset it to factory settings. Resetting your Acer laptop to factory settings can eliminate slow operation, registry problems, virus problems and spyware issues. What's more, a factory reset of your laptop may reduce the need for a full reinstallation of Windows.

Back up all necessary data to an external device such as a disk, flash drive or hard drive Make sure all programs are closed and shut down your Acer laptop. Detach any external hardware such as an external hard drive or printer. Press the Power button to boot your Acer laptop. Press "Alt-F10" on your keyboard when the Acer screen appears at the start of the boot-up process. Wait a moment while Windows loads the reset files. Select "Restore System from factory default" in the Acer eRecovery Management window. Click "Next" on the next screen to continue. Click "Next" on the following destination information window. This will pop up a notice telling you that resetting your Acer laptop will erase all data and restore the laptop to its original settings and configuration. Click "OK" in the notice window to proceed with resetting your Acer laptop. Wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

Factory reset


I think with acer u can use their erecovery management within windows /start/programs/Acer Recovery management/

or you can use the Alt+F10 or F11 at the start up some models vary and that hopefully should prompt u to reset the pc to factory settings, remember to back up you data, you might struggle with some drivers, and make sure you reinstall the security software that you prefer as soon as you are able to connect online. good luck hope this helps

Having problems with my acer travelmate 4060


Get virus scanner/remover, and then try restore to a date when the computer was in full working order. If that does not work, try to backup valuable data files before original default factory settings, and get model-specific drivers etc from Acer and Microsoft websites.
