I ran into the same problem almost a year ago, so my memory isn't 100% on the hotkeys. Alt + F10 works on DELL machines, it has nothing to do with Acers. I called Acer and they gave me a different set; I don't remember precisely what they were. Try Ctrl + F or Alt + F, although they may have been Ctrl + F4 or Alt + F4.

Even if the machine isn't under warranty, you can call them and get them to help you, at least by giving you the hotkeys that you need.

SOURCE: restore factory settings

what i would do is go into dos. If you cant get into dos find a windows 98 setup disk 3.5" this will have the dos files that will allow the computer to reconize a generic cd rom. This should allow you to get your recovery disk working. Your software problem could of created a firmware problem also. Not reconizing the cd rom. This solution will provide the basics to get your cd rom loading the recovery disk for you. If you have questions or more problems feel free to contact me and i will take you through it step by step

How to factory reset acer aspire 5610 alt + f10 not working


There is no way to reset if you cannot get into the Alt + F10 partition, if you can boot into windows ok then it can be factory defaulted by entering the Acer recovery manager, but if not then you will have to keep trying as it can be difficult to get into, i personally find pressing both keys together once every second does the trick and it has to remain constant, when you see the white line across the bottom of the screen stating "windows is loading files" then simply follow on screen instructions.

Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble.

This is a common problem with Acer. You need to press at the same time the two keys Alt and F10 when you see the Acer logo appearing.You might have to do it twice or thrice. You would be able to see the recovery management screen and then you could follow and restore the same.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Emachines G720 could you please help me restore it back to factory settings


If your computer has a restore partition, it can be accessed by repeatedly tapping alt+F10 right after turning the computer on. Usually with Acer computers (including emachines, gateway, and packard bell) I press alt+F10, alt+F11, F10, and then F11, and keep doing that, until it starts loading the recovery partition.

If that does not work, your computer may not have a restore partition, and you will need recovery discs. Usually you can obtain these from the manufacturer, but they will often charge for this.

I need recovery cd download for acer aspire m1640


There aren't any restore disks because most Acer's have them built-into the hard drive.

Just press SHIFT + F10 when you start the computer.

That should put you into the Acer eRecovery Menu.

If that key combo doesn't work try:

F10
Alt + F10
Fn +F10
ctrl + F10

Let me know which one works, I always seem to forget.

Best of luck!

Hi Sue
Kids are great aren't they? The magic combo you are looking for is alt and f10 (thats the f10 key - not f, 1 and 0). You need to press down the alt key and f10 simultaneously while the ACER screen is up.

The manual for your laptop can be found at this link. http://www.scribd.com/doc/2505575/Acer-Aspire-Laptop-manual

The instructions for the recovery are located on page 25. There is also a notice there that disk to disk recovery must be enabled in the bios for it work. The instructions are there to verify if this is so. Good luck and let me know how it goes.
