Question about Acer Aspire 5050 Notebook

1 Answer

I restored my Acer 5050 back to factory. While I was restoring it the battery went dead and my ac adapter was broke so my computer shut off while it was restoreing. Now when I start the laptop it goes to the screen asking for username and passord and everything I tried didn't worked. Now its locked and I can not get into anything

Does it come up with a user name whenever it asks you to sign on. If it does and you never used it before, then just hit enter without putting in a password. I had slightly the same problem

System recovery boot


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.

I mistakenly hit 'restore factory settings' on my Acer Laptop. How do I recover my stored data?


Hello,

When logged onto Windows, try to do a system restore. Restore to a date prior to the factory setting restoration if available. This should revert your computer back to the state it was on this date.

Note that you will lose all programs installed after this date.

Hope this helps you.

I do not know my empowering technology password for my acer aspire 5050 and I want to set my laptop back to factory settings


First plug in the Notebook to a power socket with your adapter. Power on the Notebook and you will see the Acer splash screen. Immediately press ALT and keep tapping F10 at the same time. It will take you to a screen where you will see "windows is loading files" or "starting acer recovery" it will ask you, how do you want to restore?" choose the option "restore to factory default" and click continue. It will go through the restore process and within 15 - 20 minutes it should finish the process. Your Notebook will be back to factory default settings.

Installing XP


Acer computers come with a factory restore partition installed from the factory. The following instructions are direct from Acer's support website:

Note: These steps will return the system to the original factory installation including all factory installed drivers and applications.
Back up all data prior to using this procedure.
  1. Plug in the AC adapter and battery.
  2. Turn the system on
  3. Immediately, press ALT on the keyboard and start tapping F10.
    Continue holding ALT and tapping F10 as the unit boots up.
  4. A screen stating "Starting Acer Erecovery" should appear.
    (Release ALT and stop tapping F10 at this point)
  5. There will be 4 options:
    1. Restore system to factory default
    2. Restore system from user backup
    3. Restore system from cd/dvd
    4. Exit
Restore system to factory default
  1. Enter the password created when eRecovery was first started.
  2. Read the on-screen warning and choose Yes.
  3. Click Next. The recovery process will start.
When recovery is complete the system will re-start and will need to complete the setup of Windows.
When setup is complete a process will clean up the recovery files.
Please be patient as this process can take 5-10 minutes or longer.


Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

I assume from the question that you want to restore your computer to factory default - like the day you bought it. Warning - this process will wipe out all you data unless you back it up to an external drive or DVD.

If windows is running you can start it by going to Programs, Acer Empowering Technology and run the Acer eRecovery Management. Note that on the bottom of the eRecovery Management window are 3 choices, Backup, Burn Disk and Restore. Click on Restore. Here you have the choice of selecting Restore System to Factory Default.

If windows is not working but the system boots -
Reboot the system and when the Acer logo appears, hold down the ALT key and press F10. This starts the recovery process, just follow the instructions.
