Im trying resore my acer back to factory settings


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.

I set a password to my laptop and I can't remember what it is, how can I get to use my laptop again??


@pinkruthpink

The quickiest way to reset your password is to run System Recovery (aside paying someone from a local computer store and use a software to reset it). Gateway laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you can restore the computer to factory default without using a restore discs. (please note that this will erase everything). The hotkey for the recovery is the ALT+F10 key. After you press the power button, you need to hold ALT key and then simultaneously press the F10 key.. Once the recovery menu has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings.


Good luck

there is two ways to do it.

Laptop Recovery Instructions
If you cant boot into windows

5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive
and restore a fully functional factory image (approximately 10 minutes).
6. Once eRecovery has run, press "OK" to reboot unit

If you can boot into windows

Click "START"
All Programs
Acer/ Packard Bell/ E-machine recovery
Select "Recovery management"
Click "Restore"
Click "Fully restore to factory default"

Hi

Sometimes if you press the F11 or F10 key on startup it can take you to the factory restore

but please remember to save anything important to disk or pendrive because you will loose everything you have put onto your laptop

F9 wont restore factory settings during the splash screen. is there a different button combo? running a8jp


F9 will restore factory screen only when its pressed in Bios settings screen ..to go there you have to press f2 or del during the start-up...(on boot) ..if you follow the screen that appears on boot ..you see that its says t press del to enter setup..immediately when it starts recognizing the devices..
after pressing f 9 in the bios press f10 to confirm the changes and exit ...but ..if this wha you want to restore is something related to the operating system it will not have much effect but in seeing the devices and restoring factory setings for them ...(hdd...ram mem ..CPU ..overclocking ..atc)
if you want to restore the operating system you either roll back to an earlier date by system restore in the control panel ( system maintenance ) or use a stored recovery procedure from the hdd...(if available ) or the recovery cd that came with the machine ...
remember that for some computers the recovery cd wil not contain the operating system ..so it will only restore factory settings for hot keys ..and drivers and them settings in original ..if you want to repair windows..you probably have to use a boot-able cd with operating system ..and boot from it and reinstall /repair..after case...

Factory settings


When you first turn on your computer, press the F10 key until it boots into the recovery partition. Once there, select advanced then follow the onscreen instructions. Warning: This will erase all of your data.

Some newer HPs use a different key then F10; if F10 doesn't work, then look on the screen it should tell you which key to press to start recovery.
