If you do NOT have a copy of this disc, skip to step 3 for further instructions. Once you restart your computer, a screen will appear with the words. Press Any Key to Boot From CD. Once you press a key, a screen will come up containing instructions to format your hard drive and restore the original factory settings. Follow the on-screen prompts to finish the installation. Once the restore is complete, remove your Recovery CD from the disk drive so that your computer does not try to boot from the CD again. Restart your computer to complete the restore. 3. If you do not have a System Restore disk, then your computer should have a recovery partition on your hard drive, separate from the main partition of the disk. Unplug all external devices and restart your computer. When the loading screen comes on with the Windows logo, press Alt+F10 together five times. This will bring up the system restore menu. Follow the on-screen prompts to restore your computer back to the factory settings Hope this helps.

You may be able to hold F2 as you power up to open up the "setup" screen. There should be an option to restore to factory defaults on that screen.

It's a bad day when you need to do a restoration and you don't have an optical dive. Assuming you're running XP Home or Pro, here's what you'll have to do.
1. Acquire the use of an external CD/DVD drive.
2. Obtain a disc of the XP OS that your COA (Certificate of Authenticity) is linked to, or a valid recovery disc from Acer for your model.
3. Boot the netbook to the BIOS and change the boot order to the external drive.
4. Rebuild from there.
Just about any other approach will ruin some portion of your sereniy reserves. :)

Testimonial: "Awesome help and knowledge of this product. It is actually running Win 7 Home edition."
The ALT+F10 routine should work if the ALT key is held down and the F10 key is repeatedly depressed before and during the Acer logo display.
If you still have a working M/C then the recovery routine can be accessed from START / ALL PROGAMS and selecting Acer Empowering Technology and then Acer recovery Management.
This might differ a little because you have a netbook
