How to restore your computer to factorysettings without a disk? If original andfairly new: While Booting Up.
Dell XP = Ctrl+F11 Dell Vista = F8 EEEPC = Esc Compaq = F11 HP Desktop Vista = F11 Emachine = F10 Acer = Alt+F10
Every manufacture has or uses different Function Key combinations to do a Factory Default Recovery. Also if it didn't come withdisks there is normally a program in the menus to create your own set of recovery CDs. This must be done before you ever putanything on the recovery partition d:, if you used d: for anything you need toremove what you put there or the recovery will not function.(As soon as yourcomputer is turning on press the F10 key and it will take you to the systemrecovery screen, click on the advanced option and click Destructive recoveryand click next. WARNING: before doing this backup anything on your computer youwant to keep pictures, videos, music etc. This will delete everything that didnot come pre-loaded from the factory, so if you have pictures of Aunt Fae'sClass reunion you should probably back those up if you want to keep them.)
Step 1: Click “Start” menu. Step 2: Click “Programs.” Step 3: Click “Acer Recovery Management.” Step 4: Click the “Restore” button on the bottom of the dialog box that opens. Step 5: Click “Restore System to Factory Default.” Step 6: Click “Yes” in the warning dialog box which asks if you wish to continue the recovery process. Step 7: Click “Start” to restore the computer to the default factory settings.
If you can not boot to windows, follow this:
1. Restart the laptop 2. While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to enter the recovery process. 3. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform system recovery
It seems that your laptop hardware is good and it seems that it is a software issue.
Boot in safe mode: When your laptop start, press the F8 key. then it will ask you which boot device to boot from, browse using the arrow keys and chose something with HDD and press ENTER and then press the F8 key again. Then you will be given a boot option and choose SAFE MODE.
While in SAFE MODE, try to uninstall your newly installed software that might be causing the laptop to hung up.
Also, click Start => Run then type: msconfig.
Go to the Startup Tab and uncheck the many programs that looks not necessary to load while windows is loading. The program like Yahoo Messenger, Skype can be opened manually so uncheck them if present.
when the computer first boots click alt f10 on your keyboard and it will take you to the acer restore program. you can then restore your computer to the default settings. you will be asked to hit enter before it will allow you into the screen
GO TO START. CLICK ON ALL PROGRAMS. GO TO ACER AND CLICK ON IT. THEN CLICK ON ACER eRECOVERY MANAGMENT. FIND ALL THE PROGRAMS THAT SAY CAMRA AND INSTALL ALL OF THEM OR REPAIR IT. THAT SHOULD FIX YOUR PROBLEM
Hey Ian: Shut the system down. Start it up again and as soon as you see something on the screen start hitting the F8 button for a few seconds. You should see a screen with a list of selections on it. Use your arrow keys to highlight SAFE MODE. Then hit enter. If it boots fully into safe mode see if your mouse works. See if your virus program will run and do complete scan. Then do a system restore. You do this by clicking start>click programs>click accessories>click system tools>click system restore. Choose a date about three days before you noticed any problems. If this fixed your problem please rate as fixed. If still couldn't use mouse or need furter help just add a comment and I'll be glad to help. Thanks.
