I don't see a question above, so I'll just assume that you're asking how to fix your computer so that you can connect to the internet. Is that correct?

If so and since you have reset your computer back to factory settings, you should check that all of your software is updated to the latest versions. This would include your operating system and drivers.

Then, you should check that your computer can connect to the internet via ethernet (RJ-45) cable. You would want to directly connect your laptop using the ethernet cable to your router. If this works, you can move on to trying to connect via Wi-Fi. If this doesn't work, you should check that there are no software/driver issues and/or hardware issues with your computer.

If you are trying to connect via Wi-Fi, again you will want to check that all drivers and software are up to date (so that you are on the latest versions of your operating system and the Wi-Fi care inside your computer has the latest driver so that it can connect to your wireless router). Then you will want to attempt to connect and most likely re-input your Wi-Fi password.

SOURCE: acer aspire 6920 back to factory settings

Acer sent me these instructions.


The other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts

Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:

“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”

If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.

If you see this:
“Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”

Then it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on your screen after a short pause..

In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.

The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs.

This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine.
If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.

Follow these instructions carefully:

To start the recovery process:
1. Restart the system.
2. While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to
enter the recovery process.
3. Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.

I copied the above from an Acer manual, and it works on my own system, which is not the same model as yours. But you must understand that this will basically restore your computer to the condition in which it was when you bought it, unpacked it from the box, and followed the instructions to set up a new computer.

This will give you your system back as if it were brandy new, but in most cases, anything you created, like DOCs, or XLS files, again … ANYthing you created since buying this computer, will also probably not be there any more.

You will have a pristine, clean as new, computer system.

Be careful, be absolutely sure this is what you want to do, and go ahead and do it.

    On my laptop aspire 5349 when i try to recovery factory setting the laptop installer starts services is stuck how to solve this problem.


    I am guessing the laptop is a few years old now and not covered by warranty, it appears you have a corrupt recovery partition or the HDD is faulty which i suspect its the latter, need it checked as i think a new HDD is in order.
