It means do you want to change the default factory partition size (ie. the size of the C Drive). I suggest you select No because you may have a Restore partition on the hard drive and if you change the partition size you may wipe out this Restore partition and you will not be able to do any future factory restores.

SOURCE: restoring factory default settings

System Configuration of Fujitsu Amilo D-7820 PC Notebook:

Manufacturer:  Fujitsu

Family:           AMILO

Model:            D-7820

Speed:            PC-2100

Fixed RAM:      0MB

Standard RAM:  128MB

Banks:              2

Maximum RAM: 2GB

Sockets:            2

Chipset:             Intel 855 GM

Please check whether you have a systems disk or cd with an operating system e.g. MS XP Home edition.

If you have the original operating system disk or cd, reformat your hard drive i.e. assuming that you have windows XP click the Start button, then select Run, then type "cmd" then Enter, an MS DOS screen will appear. 

Type "format c:" and enter and it will then ask whether you really want to delete all files on the hard drive and then type "Y".  The computer will then wipe everything on your computer.  You can then insert your Operating Disk or CD and follow the instructions that appear on the screen to reinstall the original default settings or the Operating System.  Hoping that this will help you solve your problem.

SOURCE: Restore to factory default

Perform a system recovery:
Acer computer's do not ship with recovery CD's - there is a program that allows you to burn the disks or recover.
3 ways to recover:

1. If in Windows - Start - Programs - Acer empowering technology - Acer E-recovery management -
click on Restore at bottom then "Restore to factory default settings"
2. Or click on Burn disks instead of Restore
3. If unable to boot into Windows then tap Alt/F10 during boot right after Acer splash screen when starting up the computer.
4. This will start the Acer E-recovery program - choose Factory Default Settings and follow instructions.

SOURCE: I need to restore factory default setting for acer aspire 5920.

depending on the age and model, most acers come with a self-branded "recovery CD" creation program. I'm not sure why you need to do the restore, but assuming the computer will still boot, you need to find that program and have a couple cd's or dvd's handy and step through the prompts to create the cd's. Once you do, you need to restart the computer and boot it up with that CD you just created and step through the process. Make sure all your stuff is backed up first.

How to do full system recovery for my sony vaio PCG-4JBP? thk u


Not sure what you mean when you say "full system recovery" but the operating system will have system restore points that you can access from the control panels system protection option. If you want to perform a factory default reset, start up the laptop and then look out for options that can be accessed by pressing one of the number function (Fn) keys. I believe the Vaio range comes with an option to restore the laptop back to it's shipped factory defaults, the interface is reliable and did a great job when I restored a Vaio VGN-NW20EF, came out like new!

I am trying to restore to the original state with the three recovery disks my Vaio VGN-NW350F but it first showed an error 320 and then an error 330. Afterwards I cannot even run the program to restore...


1. For Error 320 or 330 , if possible, run the RAM hardware diagnostics to determine if the RAM has failed.
2. Disconnect all external hardware that is attached to the computer.
3. Reset the BIOS to the factory defaults.
4. If the RAM passes the test, only the HDD requires service.
This error also may occur if you are performing a system recovery on a new unformatted hard drive or if sector 0 of the hard drive was cleaned.
Select the "Restore Complete System" option from teh recovery discs and during the installation wizard choose YES for the option "Do you want to keep the factory default hard drive size?".
