Alt is defined in the software to jump to the ACER E Technology software suite. If you have wiped the hard drive clean without saving a backup of the application, you are out of luck. If you saved an applications backup, then re-install the Etechnology software suite.

How do i reboot my recovery partition from a aspire 3690


Hi
If you have the option to save anything like files and photo's stored on your hard drive you should do this before you attempt a recovery because you will loose all files it will format your hard drive
back to when you bought it

Normally when you hit the power key you also tap the ALT+ F10 key a few times until it gets you
into the acer recovery manager and when asked for a password try 000000 thats is ( 6 zero's ) and follow the on screen instructions


if the F10 option dont work

then restar laptop and tap the F2 key to get you into bios and go over to about the 3rd of 4th option
and make sure that the D2D is enabled if it is not then click on it and change to enable
then click F10 to save and exit


then go back and try the ALT+F10 keys again

My Acer Aspire One D250 is stuck on the Windows XP loading screen. I have tried unplugging it and plugging it back in again, and have even taken out the battery and just plugged the power cord into it....


Hi Mimi,

If you can live with losing all the data on the netbook, you can reset it to factory original by pressing and holding alt + f10 right after you power it on. This will trigger the Acer e-recovery management utility which will allow you to reset it. If you do this, you will lose all data on the pc. If this is a problem, you may have to take it to a service shop to have your data backed up first. Also, if you can't get the alt+f10 thing to work, you can take it to an Acer authorized service centre and they can send it to Acer for warranty repair as it is less than 1 year old. Acer normally does not cover software issues, but if alt+f10 doesn't work, it could be an issue they will cover under warranty.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Joe

The partition D is actually a back up partition that has factory image for the original Operating system that was installed in the computer.

How to reboot my acer aspire 3690 to factory condition


On startup you will see a message on the acer splash screen to get into "SETUP". This will either be the DEL key or the F2 key.

Go into your BIOS and make sure that D2D recovery is enabled. If you do not see this D2D option then you can exit and should not have to adjust anything else.

when you restart the PC again, hold down the ALT and tap on the F10 key, this will start the recovery partition and load your system to factory default.

This option will only work if you still have your original hard drive in the PC and you have not reformated or reinstalled windows from another media souce.

What function keys do i press on startup to re insatll the operating system on my acer aspire 3690


you can use the recovery disk which came along with the laptop to reinstall the OS. There is no function key to start the installation automatically, there is a backup / restore button in some laptops which can reset the OS. Check the manual for any such button on your laptop.
