Looking for restore Aspire M5100

Hi,

I am looking to restore my computer back to factory settings and cannot find how to do it. I do not have a restore cd. I have an Acer Aspire M5100 desktop computer that is a little over 1 year old which was purchased from Best Buy. I find it interesting that the only Acer 5100 computer I can find information about is a notebook/laptop. MIne is definitely a desktop computer.

If you cannot tell me how to restore from my computer can you please tell me how to purchase a restore cd.

Computer will only run in safe mode at this point and i cannot get online. Please help a.s.a.p

I need to restore my netbook to factory settings but I don't have a flash drive or disk drive


Hi,

With Acer One's there is usually a hidden partition that will allow you to recover the operating system to factory defaults without the use of a flashdrive or a CD/DVD drive.

To recover the operating system please follow the below instructions carefully.

Consider what data you still need from your Acer Aspire One's hard drive. Save the files to an external USB device.

Restart the Acer Aspire One's operating system. Wait for the Acer logo to appear on the LCD screen.

Press the "Alt" and "F10" keys at the same time to bring up the recovery menu. Press "Enter."

Click "Next." Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to restore the operating system back to factory settings.

Use the drop-down boxes to select the time zone and language information for your Acer Aspire One. Restart the netbook when you are prompted to finish restoring the computer.

That should be it. All you have to do from there is restore any files you backed up before the recovery.


If there is anything else please post back.



Regards.

Need to restore my acer aspire to factory setting but never got a recovery disc at purchase,how do I go about doing this as i am not that technically minded


"Restoring a system should be a last ditch effort in trying to repair a computer, since restoration causes all programs and many files to be lost forever. Restoring an Acer computer to its original factory settings can be done in a few easy steps."
  1. Click “Start” menu.
  2. Click “Programs.”
  3. Click “Acer Recovery Management.”
  4. Click the “Restore” button on the bottom of the dialog box that opens.
  5. Click “Restore System to Factory Default.”
  6. Click “Yes” in the warning dialog box which asks if you wish to continue the recovery process.
  7. Click “Start” to restore the computer to the default factory settings.
