There are 2 ways for doing this

1) Fast and easy without backup disk just do this

Acer: When you turn on the laptop and see the Acer logo screen, hold the ALT key and press the F10 key (you need to do this before the Acer logo disappears).


2) If the method above doesnt work u can do it thru backup disk u have got when u purchased ur laptop u shud have made it thru Erecovery software.

Pls rate me FIXYA for help !

How to configuration hard drive to factory default


Step 1:
Which operating system ?
Laptop computers can be wonderful devices, except when the need to troubleshoot arises. Acer laptops are no different. A quick way to fix many problems with an Acer laptop running Windows is to reset it to factory settings. Resetting your Acer laptop to factory settings can eliminate slow operation, registry problems, virus problems and spyware issues. What's more, a factory reset of your laptop may reduce the need for a full reinstallation of Windows.

Back up all necessary data to an external device such as a disk, flash drive or hard drive Make sure all programs are closed and shut down your Acer laptop. Detach any external hardware such as an external hard drive or printer. Press the Power button to boot your Acer laptop. Press "Alt-F10" on your keyboard when the Acer screen appears at the start of the boot-up process. Wait a moment while Windows loads the reset files. Select "Restore System from factory default" in the Acer eRecovery Management window. Click "Next" on the next screen to continue. Click "Next" on the following destination information window. This will pop up a notice telling you that resetting your Acer laptop will erase all data and restore the laptop to its original settings and configuration. Click "OK" in the notice window to proceed with resetting your Acer laptop. Wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

It sounds like your computer's hard drive may be failing or you have a corrupted operating system. If it finally starts, I'd suggest using the restore partition/ restore media to reinstall the operating system. Otherwise, replace the hard drive.

if you converted the drive to a dynamic drive then you will have issues altering it. if you cannot get the operating system to load so that you can re configure the drive so that it is not dynamic then you will have to do a clean install of the operating system and completely reformat the drive.

I need to restore my netbook to factory settings but I don't have a flash drive or disk drive


Hi,

With Acer One's there is usually a hidden partition that will allow you to recover the operating system to factory defaults without the use of a flashdrive or a CD/DVD drive.

To recover the operating system please follow the below instructions carefully.

Consider what data you still need from your Acer Aspire One's hard drive. Save the files to an external USB device.

Restart the Acer Aspire One's operating system. Wait for the Acer logo to appear on the LCD screen.

Press the "Alt" and "F10" keys at the same time to bring up the recovery menu. Press "Enter."

Click "Next." Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to restore the operating system back to factory settings.

Use the drop-down boxes to select the time zone and language information for your Acer Aspire One. Restart the netbook when you are prompted to finish restoring the computer.

That should be it. All you have to do from there is restore any files you backed up before the recovery.


If there is anything else please post back.



Regards.

If I restore my factory Settings from eRecovery will it erase my operating system? and will it erase the Linux O/S I have installed on it?


If you do a restore to Factory Settings from eRecovery, all your data and programs would be erased and your system would return to it's original state of what it was when you purchased, Acer eRecovery restores the factory backup (default Acer preload), so if your machine came pre-loaded with any Windows OS, hope you had configured the eRecovery settings before hand and yes you will loose the Linux O/S install
