Hello,

Here is how to restore any Acer or Gateway machine to factory settings:

When you power the netbook on, as soon as you see the Acer logo, hold the Alt key down and start tapping the F10 key repeatedly (takes about 10 seconds to trigger the restore process. It may take a few tries to get the timing right but I promise you this is the way.

The hard drive on your netbook has a hidden restore partition which contains the necessary files to do the factory restore. It is possible that this partition was erased when Ubuntu was installed. If you can't get the Alt+F10 to work, then you will have to contact Acer to get a recovery USB drive.

Hope this helps!

Joe

SOURCE: How do I reset my Gateway LT20 Netbook

Very simple! You need to go into Cmos for the setup which is usualy F2 on boot. Once in the setup you go to the end page whwere it asks you if you want to restore factory defaults. Simply click on it then press save and exit. If F2 does not work on the boot to access Cmos setup then look at the screen as it starts to boot and it will usualy tell you what function key is for setup. Good luck Phil

If you still have the windows OS on there, start your laptop and press F8 until the restore, repair screen shows, then run restore. That should do it.
