Question about Acer Aspire M3710
My pc randomly switches off. and has problem turning on. i think its from the setup files
The Windows (or other OS) settings would not prevent it from turning on. Based on your info:
Power supply - could be intermittent or overheating. Check that the fan spins. If the power supply fan has a squealing or grinding sound, then the fan is going out and could be stopping some of the time causing overheating. Also check the heat output by holding your hand by the fan exhaust and see if its overly hot. That could also shut it down intermittently.
CPU - overheating is possible. Many systems have shutdown temperatures to protect from overheating. Check that the fan spins up and is not plugged up with dust. If it squeals or grinds or makes abnormal noise, replace it because it will freeze in the near future. If you've separated the CPU from the fan recently, maybe the thermal paste wasn't applied fresh or properly. If you go into the BIOS, many computers allow you to view the temperature, voltages, etc., so you can check if its a CPU temperature problem. There are also many free programs that will monitor your computer temperatures and display them in the system tray. I can also suggest a program that will tell you everything about your computer (temps are under sensors):
However, if you want to restore your computer, many have a restore option on the bootup splash screen. To save on the cost of DVD's, they create a "restore" partition on the hard drive. Sometimes the restore function will save existing data by restoring Windows only, without erasing the hard drive first. You will get ample warning if it will erase your data. If you don't have a restore function, then you'd have to buy restore disks from the computer manufacturer. The usually run less than $30.

You'll have to use your recovery disk to set it back to factory, unfortunately most recovery disks give you little or no options for which software is to be reinstalled. The only way to install windows without any of the extra software that your computer came with would be to take a standard windows installation disk and install through that. Afterwards you would have to manually install all the driver software.
Alternatively, you can install with your recovery disk and use the add/remove software feature in the control panel to remove any programs that you do not want, just be sure that you don't remove any software that is a driver for any hardware devices.
Hope this helps, get back to me if you need any more information.

You will need to burn a Recovery CD / DVD set from the icon located on the desktop/ In your Acer Home Start utility (The window loading at startup) or from the Start Menu.
Using this disk you will be able to do a System Restore back to original factory setup.

Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc, pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.
