Acer travelmate 4222 i need to factory reset without cd

Here is the thing, apparently all the certificates within the laptop expired, which is not allowing me to do much of anything. I need to reset the acer back to the factory setting. I bought it used and it did not come with any of the original software. I don't have the funds to buy cds or software of any kind. Is there a way, I can go in and reset it to original setting and then, I can add my software to the laptop and maybe get online with the computer again. Please and Thank you. Sharon

Recovery media is not necessary to recover your computer. You can use Acer Recovery Management to reinstall your Operating System from a hidden partition built into your computer. If you have replaced your original hard drive, you will not have Recovery Management, and will need to install windows using Recovery disks.
Note: During the process, all data stored on your computer will be overwritten. This means all your files, such as email and photos, will be erased. Therefore, we recommend making a backup of all personal data before starting the recovery process..
Use the following steps to start the system recovery:
1. Restart the computer.
2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the left Alt, and the F10 keys.
3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
4. After the Acer eRecovery Management application has loaded, select your restore type.
5. Read the notice, and then click Next when you are ready.
6. Click Next to begin the restore process. The restore can take anywhere from 10 minutes up to an hour.
7. Once the restore is complete your computer will load Windows and start installing your drivers and software. Your computer may reboot several times during this process. After everything is complete your computer will be like it was when you first purchased it.
If the steps above do not work, you will need to use recovery media to restore your system. If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase a set online.

Did you try to recover interrupting startup like pressing ESC or an Fkey? Try fiddling with that. Maybe you can reset it to factory. You can on an HP Supported computer.

Hey Enrico, Check out this thread about installing the module into the exact same laptop: http://www.notebookforums.com/thread185110.html
This particular post (found down the page on page 2 of the thread) reveals that someone has succesfully installed it without the need for drivers: http://www.notebookforums.com/post2555643-3.html
Follow that thread and check that you have installed the module in the correct location as described in a couple of the messages in the thread.

You may be able to hold F2 as you power up to open up the "setup" screen. There should be an option to restore to factory defaults on that screen.

When I go to start menu to shut down and press shut down it will just reboot and will ot shut down


Step 1:
Laptop computers can be wonderful devices, except when the need to troubleshoot arises. Acer laptops are no different. A quick way to fix many problems with an Acer laptop running Windows is to reset it to factory settings. Resetting your Acer laptop to factory settings can eliminate slow operation, registry problems, virus problems and spyware issues. What's more, a factory reset of your laptop may reduce the need for a full reinstallation of Windows.

Back up all necessary data to an external device such as a disk, flash drive or hard drive Make sure all programs are closed and shut down your Acer laptop. Detach any external hardware such as an external hard drive or printer. Press the Power button to boot your Acer laptop. Press "Alt-F10" on your keyboard when the Acer screen appears at the start of the boot-up process. Wait a moment while Windows loads the reset files. Select "Restore System from factory default" in the Acer eRecovery Management window. Click "Next" on the next screen to continue. Click "Next" on the following destination information window. This will pop up a notice telling you that resetting your Acer laptop will erase all data and restore the laptop to its original settings and configuration. Click "OK" in the notice window to proceed with resetting your Acer laptop. Wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

Factory reset


I think with acer u can use their erecovery management within windows /start/programs/Acer Recovery management/

or you can use the Alt+F10 or F11 at the start up some models vary and that hopefully should prompt u to reset the pc to factory settings, remember to back up you data, you might struggle with some drivers, and make sure you reinstall the security software that you prefer as soon as you are able to connect online. good luck hope this helps

I have an Acer TRAVELMATE 4222 and tried to restore the problem by installing the Microsoft 2003 disc but it tells me that windows 32 is missing. Can I resolve this problem? How does one reformate this...


Hi

i believe it could be in your programs
start
program
acer empowering technologies
acer erecovery management
recovery

then follow onscreen instructions

but please if you have the option save any important items like files or photo,s to
a spare drive or disk before you do this as you will loose all you put on and it will format your drive
and hopefully restore back to factory settings

if you cannot start the laptop correctly
then try to press the power key along with the alt+f10 key i believe this will start the recovery

Mother Board CD for ACER Travelmate 240


Unfortunately the Travelmate doesn't come with any other way to format the computer to factory settings. However you do have 2 options. The first is to contact Acer who still provide OS discs for your laptop (They will charge you $49.95 including shipping). The second is to use a free Operating System such as Linux. I recommend Ubuntu www.ubuntu.org as it is very easy to use, has a great community support group and you can try by using a Live CD before formatting.
