depending on the age and model, most acers come with a self-branded "recovery CD" creation program. I'm not sure why you need to do the restore, but assuming the computer will still boot, you need to find that program and have a couple cd's or dvd's handy and step through the prompts to create the cd's. Once you do, you need to restart the computer and boot it up with that CD you just created and step through the process. Make sure all your stuff is backed up first.

SOURCE: restore factory default settings
In order to refresh a netbook you will have to use a USB key or an external USB DVD ROM to run windows and restore the system. If you still have all of the original software on the laptop you should be able to go to Start>>Control Panel>>Backup and Restore and click Create System Restore Disk. You can then create CDs that can be used to restore your system. You can also copy windows files from a DVD or ISO file to a USB thumbdrive and install windows again from scratch by booting to it. I will be posting a how to on how to do this in detail.

But before you do this remember that restoring the laptop to factory settings.... All of the data on your laptop's hard drive will be permanently erased
when you restore it to its original settings. Before starting the
restore process you may want to save any data you still need to an
external drive such as a USB flash storage device.
Place the operating system recovery CD that came with your computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.Wait for the computer manufacturer's logo to pop up on the screen. Press the keyboard key that brings up the recovery menu, which is usually "F2," "F8," or "Ctrl" and "F11" pressed simultaneously.Select the specific language you want the operating system to use from the menu at the top of the screen. Select "Next."
Choose the option labeled "PC Restore," "Repair Your Computer" or something similar. Click "Next."Select "Restore" and then click "Enter" to start the process. Click "Restart" once the process has ended to boot the restored computer to its operating system.

Do you have Recovery discs? Or is there a partition on your hard drive for Recovery?
Click Start/My Computer and see if there is a Recovery drive on your system. If not you will need recovery disks. Sometimes the Recovery Partition might be hidden on your hard drive.
Normally you get into Recovery by pressing one of the F1 thru F12 keys repeatedly as soon as you hit the power button. F11 seems to be the most popular key for most manufacturers.
There might be a Recovery listed in your program list. Click Start/Programs and see if there is any reference to Recovery. It might also be listed in one of the manufacturer folders.

When you first enter the printer menus from the operator panel, you may notice an asterisk (*)
next to a value in the menus. This asterisk indicates the factory default setting. These settings
are the original printer settings. (Factory defaults may vary for different countries.)
When you select a new setting from the operator panel, the Saved message appears. When
the Saved message disappears, an asterisk appears next to the setting to identify it as the
current user default setting. These settings are active until new ones are stored or the factory
defaults are restored.
To restore the original printer factory default settings:
1 Make sure the printer is on and the Ready message appears.
2 Press Menu until you see Utilities Menu, and then press Select.
3 Press Menu until you see Factory Defaults, and then press Select.
4 Restore appears on the second line of the display.
5 Press Select.
The message Restoring Factory Defaults appears followed by the Ready
When you select Restore:
• No other button actions are available on the operator panel while Restoring
Factory Defaults appears.....
