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

Need factory restore for aspire d257


You may be interested in having a look at "How to restore Acer Aspire One Netbook Back to factory settings" on YouTube.

But don't forget to backup your files before you do that.

Have you considered "just" doing the system restore and setting it back to the point of time when everything was working properly?
(In this case the path is " Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore).

Retore my aspire m5100 to factory settings


You have 2 options to restore your Acer to factory defaults :

A)
  1. Hit the Delete key when you see the ACER logo. This will bring you to the set up screen.
  2. Scroll until you find the "Load Default Settings" option, then hit Enter.
  3. A screen will pop up to confirm that this is what you want to do. type Y and hit Enter again.
  4. Make sure to save the changes.

B)

If your computer does not have a built in recovery partition, you will have to order the recovery disk from Acer.

Need SATA drivers for Aspire M5100


Hi Byteguy, I believe I can help but I need more information, I believe you're looking for the SATA Controller driver, you probably won't find these from Acer. Does your computer have an Intel or ATI chipset? You'll likely find the driver from one of them.
