I have an acer 5610z windows vista i need to restore to factory settings

I am scared to use the restore dvd's on my aspire 5610z. It is a vista. I was told that it is not that easy. I have 34gb c drive and i have taken off my folders and pictures. I now have 4gb left. I have virus programs and fix it programs yet they can only clean so much.

    What I hv understand from your post is that u took the DATA BACK UP OF your folders from C DRIVE. It had 34 GB data and now it has 4 GB left in it. If that's the case then that's the SPACE taken up by WINDOWS and other programs which are hidden.To see them Click on Tools Menu-> Folder Options -> View Tab In Top Of The Window -> Go To Hidden Files And Folders And Put A Check In Show Hidden Files And Folders....
    If That's Not The Case Plzz Elaborate bit more about the issue.

You need to back all your files (if you have external drive) before reformatting your OS using the restore dvd's to keep it safe. if you are unsure to restore your machine you can contact acer support. they will guide you step by step.

Acer Aspire 5610Z. Upgraded to Win 7. Screen resolution changes


Hello,

Your laptop was not designed to run windows 7 or be compatible with it. It may run fine with windows 7 but issues might come up sooner or later like the one you're experiencing.

[EXPERIMENTAL]
Download both of these (as I don't know which one of thsese two your laptop needs). Keep mind that doing the following could render your system inoperable and use at own risk. When downloaded, extract ZIP , open desired folder and find SETUP or INSTALL program. Right click and choose properties, then navigate to compatibility mode, then select windows Vista from the menu. Then apply changes, ok and close window and attempt to start.

Multimedia keys not working on acer aspire 5610z do i need a driver, where can i download it?


If you mean by multimedia keys the buttons that allow you to bring up media player and skip tracks and stuff then I think I had this problem too.
I wiped my 5610z but only installed only the windows software.This stopped the keys from working. However when I then used the factory restore disk instead, this re-installed windows and also made the keys work again.

So your best bet is to create a factoryrestore disk. You can download the software to do so online :) its called Acer eRecovery

Reformating


You need to have a windows vista dvd or a recovery/restore cd from Acer. CD-less installation will only work if your computer has a restore image which should be installed in the factory. I dont think acer dekstops have that though.

Just call Acer and ask for a vista dvd or see if you know someone who owns a computer which came with the same version of vista and borrow their dvd.

System Restore


any changes to windows registry that are automatically done such as Windows background updates will make restore un-useable. Microsoft should provide this warning, maybe they do but I have not seen it. Try disabling auto-updates, but first you must get back to "...set computer back to factory default".
