I see, Follow the details below to be able to do a Factory Restore on your Acer.
I hope that this will help your restore your machine to Factory Defaults.

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.
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,

When you first boot the machine at the bios screen hold the ALT key
and press F10 this should start your acer recovery.
I would visit the acer site first and download certain drivers, ethernet or wireless etc and save them to disk or USB storage etc
if i can help further let me know

Generally it is suppose to be F11 key.
On couples of computers we use F11 so it should work for you dear.
Thanks for using Fixya.
