Did you press 5 times

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.

SOURCE: computer restor back to factory set

Perform a system recovery:
Does not come with recovery cd's - there is a program that allows you to burn the disks or
recover.
3 ways:

1. If in Windows - Start - Programs - Acer empowering technology - Acer E-recovery management -
click on Restore at bottom then "Restore to factory default settings"
2. Or click on Burn disks instead of restore
3. if unable to ge into Windows then Alt/F10 during boot right after Acer splash screen on startup

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.

Hi there,

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. :)

Regards,

Marcus

SOURCE: I have acer aspire 3002lci . I want restore

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

Hi.

Because the laptop is brand new there is nothing else we can tell that you haven't already done.

The only other thing that I can suggest is safe mode. If you can see the Acer logo or post information when you first turn the laptop on then repeatedly press the F8 key to get to the advanced boot options menu and then choose safe mode from the top of the list. Wait until the computer has booted and then click on the Start Menu > Control Panel > Uninstall a Program. Look in the list of installed programs for the internet dongle software and try to uninstall it.
If you can't see the program then I suggest that you use the recovery option to set it back to factory defaults.

  1. Plug in the AC adapter and battery.
  2. Turn the system on
  3. Immediately, press ALT on the keyboard and start tapping F10.
    Continue holding ALT and tapping F10 as the unit boots up.
  4. A screen stating "Starting Acer Erecovery" should appear.
    (Release ALT and stop tapping F10 at this point)
  5. There will be 4 options:
    1. Restore system to factory default
    2. Restore system from user backup
    3. Restore system from cd/dvd
    4. Exit
Choose option 1 and follow the instructions. If you have set up a password for Acer eRecovery then have it handy to enter it.

If after all this you are still getting the same symptoms then I suggest that you take advantage of the warranty and take/send the the laptop back as being defective.



Good luck!!

Acer aspire 6920 back to factory settings


Acer sent me these instructions.


The other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts

Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:

“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”

If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.

If you see this:
“Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”

Then it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on your screen after a short pause..

In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.

The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs.

This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine.
If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.
