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

  1. Disconnect all peripherals and internal non preinstalled devices from the PC, except the monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
  2. Turn on the computer.
  3. 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 is started.
  4. When the Recovery screen appears, click Next, and then click Yes to perform a normal, non-destructive recovery.
  5. To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced, and then click Yes.
  6. After the System Recovery is complete, and the computer starts successfully, update the computer software

Post back if this does NOT work

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Can I reset it back to factory setting with out a CD or DVD


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.

I dont know how to restore my acer with linux back to factory settings


The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop. A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop. It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature. You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard. Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.

Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive. Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook. Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load. Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen. Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot the netbook when you are prompted. Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

I restored my acer aspire one back to factory settings without a back up device. when I try to restore from disk with an external cd. it says my disk is incorrect. it was the disk that came with it.


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.

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.

    I want to reboot my Toshiba A200 back to factory settings, i have a spyware down load **** that keeps on asking me to install.....how do i reboot


    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.
