Re: reboot back to factory settings
Hi there You can only perform a restore if the PC came with a recovery partition or recovery CD's.
Recovering the system without using Windows
Disconnect all peripherals and
internal non preinstalled devices from the PC,
except the monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
Turn on the computer.
When the initial blue HP screen
appears, press the
F10 key repeatedly until a
recovery menu appears. The progress indicator
that first appears does not indicate that a
recovery is taking place. The progress indicator
represents the time before the recovery process
When the Recovery screen
appears, click Next, and then click
Yes to perform a normal, non-destructive
To perform a destructive
recovery, click Advanced, and then click
After the System Recovery is
complete, and the computer starts successfully,
update the computer software
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If the restore partition is still on the hard disk then press Alt and F10 just before it boots. Otherwise try T8 just before it boots. If this fails try Creating a System Rescue USB drive (Note: An alternative to the spyware-laden Daemon-tools for mounting the ISO file as a virtual CD-ROM is Virtual CloneDrive). If you have trouble with the System Rescue CD, you can try some other distros.
Reboot the netbook and go into the Acer BIOS settings. Change the boot settings to check USB first. Plug in your System Rescue stick, and restart the netbook.
Run "wizard", and launch gtparted (icon towards the lower-left of the screen).
Delete partition 2, create a new one, then reformat it as NTFS
Mark partition 1 as bootable (right-click, edit flags). Remove USB drive.
Reboot into the Acer System Restore software. Choose to restore the system.
Plug the System Rescue USB drive back into the Acer netbook.
Reboot into the System Rescue CD/USB, go back into gparted, and flag the restored partition 2 as bootable.
Remove USB flash drive and reboot.
Hope that helps.
In that case, only the seller can solve it replacing the disk or your CD drive that I did not want to mention but seems to be your problem. Before calling them, try to disable the CD driver in Control Panel, reboot, Enable the driver, reboot and try the cd again.
Turn on your computer. Right away there will be a black screen. You can restore factory settings without a CD, too. This will reset your BIOS.Press F1 when the black screen appears; you will enter the setup configuration mode. You will be presented with a menu.Select Restore Factory Defaults. Your computer will do all the work for you. As with the CD, this process may take several hours.
You can use the Restore CD that came with the computer. The eMachines restore disk sets your PC back to factory settings with the original operating system and programs that were shipped with the computer. Doing so resolves many problems that can arise from long-term computer use, viruses, or the operating system slowing down.
1. To do a factory restore insert the restore CD then reboot the computer. When prompted, press any key to boot from the CD.
2. Select the option to "Reformat the drive to factory settings."
3. Follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the operating system and original software that came with your computer.
4. Once the Restore finishes, you can re-install all the programs that you added to the computer as well as restore your files.
Reminder: Reformatting your computer erases all of your installed programs, personal documents, pictures and music. If you have the ability to, back up all of your personal data using a removable flash drive, external hard drive or DVDs before doing a Factory Restore.
To reboot to factory setting you need to have the restore disk from the computer, put it in the drive and restart with the cd in the drive, if the startup screen does not start right away you need to type f11 or f6 to change startup order to cd first the the restore screen will startup and click restore factory settings

If you are having problems with your system and you want to restore it to factory settings .. as long as there is nothing wrong with the CD drive itself you do not need windows drivers for it to function properly during a factory restore
If you have the recovery CD, then put that in the drive, reboot the laptop and make sure you boot to the CD. The recovery process will start up and you can restore the laptop to it's factory settings. Make sure you have all of your documents, music, etc. backed up.
