Question about Fujitsu Siemens Computers & Internet
Hi, I have the three System Recovery discs I made when I first got my pc. I would like to restore my pc to its factory settings. Can you please tell me how to get into the screen to do this? I had had the blue screen before now and that would have let me do the restore, but I wasn't ready to do it at the time. Now I have put all my important info on a stick, located my recovery discs, etc. and no matter where I search, i cannot find any instructions on restoring factory settings! Please help! Thanks! :)

Try to boot from the recovery discs. It might solve your problem.

Hmm...try taking the hard drive away from ur laptop and use a ''hard drive caddy'' to connect it via usb to another pc.Then format it and try to recover again.It might also be a bios error wich i don't think you can replace on a laptop motherboard.Also try contacting toshiba for a replace or refund if in warranty.

There might be one step you could try to restore the system to factory specifications. When you turn the laptop on, and you see the Acer splash screen, press the Alt-F10 keys together at the same time, and this should hopefully bring the Acer eRecovery system up, provided that your computer has the built-in recovery partition. If it asks for a password, try using the default of "000000". If that doesn't work, then a password has been entered into the system, and there is no way to reset it, however there is a way to find out what the password is, however it does require the use of the Ubuntu Operating System (which is free to download, here)

well if its the boot password you have hope,ALT+F10 on start is supposed to get you to the recovery manager,if you cant get there restore factory default,if its the windows operating system password,you can try to type administrator in the user name and leave the password blank,sometimes your able to get in on the built in administrator acct.,if that doesnt work,,its not easy you can download password recovery programs and try that,if its the boot lock password you can take it apart and remove the bios battery on the mother board,remove main battery ,unplug power set something on the power button heavy enough to hold it down and wait,the longer the better,one day ,maybe two,reassemble and it should be back to factory default, if its under warranty send it to acer,nowif your able to get past the boot password and the windows password is still holding you up you can one-time boot to a windows disc and reinstall new copy,warning! you will loose everything on the computer,but at least you can use it agian hope this helps,aloha from maui todd0708

Providing the laptop was built after 2005 then there should be a recovery partition on the laptop.
Turn the laptop on and repeatedly press the F10 key, this should get you into the recovery partition and allow you to factory restore the laptop.
