The Acer Aspire line of netbooks have two methods to restore the computer to a working state: System Restore, an application included with Windows, or Acer eRecovery Management, a proprietary application that is packaged with Acer PCs.

If errors appear when running Windows, or if the computer begins to behave strangely, first run System Restore to determine whether reverting the PC to a previous state fixes the problem.
If the problem remains unresolved, or worsens, you can use Acer eRecovery Management to format the hard drive and reload the Acer Aspire netbook to its factory state.

Navigate to the "Start" menu. Select the "Control Panel."
Type "restore" into the Search box.
Press "Enter" then select "Restore Your Computer to an Earlier Time" from below the "Action Center."
Click "Open System Restore."
Click "Next" on the "Restore System Files and Settings" screen.


Select a restore point that was created when the computer was functioning properly. Click "Next," then click "Finish."
Click "Yes" to confirm.
Windows will perform a system recovery on the Acer Aspire One.

Acer eRecovery Management

Turn on the Acer netbook. Hold down the "Alt" and "F10" buttons simultaneously on the boot screen to load Acer eRecovery Management from the recovery partition.


Select "Restore Operating System to Factory Defaults" from the options.


Click "Next" to recover the system to its original state.

Find a boot device?


You need to obtain a recovery CD for your operating system. It will give you some recovery options which may work. If not you will probably have to reload the operating system. You might be lucky and there is a hidden recovery partition to set the machine back to factory state. Google your machine for recovery partition option.

My acer aspire will not boot can you help


I think the operation system is corrupted and the action to do is press the key specified on screen to get to the boot menu ..and select the recovery partition if you have one ..In this option select to total reinstall the operation system and will work after that .
To engage the recovery if it does not work with the boot menu ..try to see if F11 works ..usually this key is reserved for recovery procedure alone ..
If you do not have a recovery partition you will need a recovery disk and the same procedure Boot from disk and reinstall the system or ..a Boot-able disk with operation system on it to reinstall the system from scratch ..
let me know if you have other issues related with this ..

How can I get a recovery disc for a vaio vgn-ar320e laptop


For a factory reset there are two installation options:
C:\ drive recovery
System recovery

System recovery will rebuild the partition. C drive recovery will simply re install the C drive on the active partition. When you do full system recovery we create a hidden partition that is read only. this gives you the F10 boot-able recovery partition tools.hit f-10 on boot up
