Unable to conenct to laptop

Performing a system reset might take care of the problem. Reset instructions: Plug in the AC charger and hold the power/pair button. The headphones will show a solid red or blue light when they have been successfully reset.

I wnt to know how to reset the computer

Assuming the netbook is working normally, and it has the original hard drive that was in it from new, there should be a recovery partition present on the hard drive.

When you switch the machine on, press and hold the Alt button and F10 while the Acer logo is showing. This should give you access to the Acer Recovery centre. Alternatively, boot to Windows, click the start button, All Programs, Acer and Acer eRecovery Management.

Please note that factory recovery usually completely wipes any user data, so back up any important files before performing the recovery. Recovery will restore the machine to the factory installation, so you will also lose any third party software that has been installed since the machine came out of its box.

How do i reset my laptop back to factory settings

The disc that you should have received with the laptop should give you this option. Just put it in and reboot and it will bring you to a menu with a few different recovery options to choose from.

Hi, As per the description of the issue that you have provided ;even after performing a complete factory restore you are unable to get to load Windows and you get a blue screen to flash for a few seconds.This is an issue possibly related with the Hard drive or motherboard in the laptop.So i would suggest that if the laptop is covered under warranty please contact ACER so that the repair could done under the warranty.In case the warranty has expired I would suggest that you contact a local technician at your place who would be able to assist you with the replacement. Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.
