To restore Windows without a password:
1. Set your BIOS so that it uses the DVD drive as its primary boot device.
2. Boot the machine with your Windows 7 Repair CD.
3. Press a key if prompted to boot from the DVD.
4. Select "Safe Mode Command Prompt" when prompted.
5. Select Repair when prompted.
6. Select System Restore when prompted.
7. Set Windows back to a point before this problem occurred.
8. When finished, remove the CD before rebooting the system.
In Step 2 you could also use your Windows 7 installation DVD. The subsequent steps are similar to the ones above.

When finished, plan ahead and create two admin accounts whose details you record on a sheet of paper that you file in a safe place.

How do I download the software that comes on the disk that originally came with the unit?

Hi Alan,

Here's an easy way to get or update your DVD drivers:

You could try to use this driver scanning tool, which scans the computer for needed drivers and has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free driver scanning tool from here or directly from this link.

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

If, with all of the above, sound doesn't work, you can try with the System Restore. To know more about System Restore, go to this link.

If none of the above methods worked, pull out your DVD drive and test it in another computer. You can also try re-installing Windows and lastly try another drive, if it still fails to work.

Hope that helps,

Would like to set it back tofactory settings

start up the computer and in the bio's there should be an option to press a key like F9 or something to open the repair console...from this menu choose re-set to factory settings...there should be a backup partition on acer hard drives to restore it back...

if this dosn't work bang in an OS cd - boot it up from the bios and follow the on screen instructions - drivers that are not installed will be avalible from acer's website - they are quite good for downloading them

How to clear and restore?

Your notebook should have came with a set of recovery CDs. If so you can recover your PC with the following steps:

  1. If the PC works, back up all data files that you want to save onto removable media, such as a DVD. Remove the backup DVD you have made.
  2. Press the Eject button on the disc drive, and wait for the tray to open. Insert Recovery DVD disc #1 and close the tray.
  3. Turn off the PC.
    • If the notebook works: Click Start on the taskbar, click Turn Off Computer , and then click Turn Off . Or
    • Press and hold the On button approximately 5 seconds until it turns off.
  4. Disconnect all devices.
  5. Press the On button.
  6. Recovery starts; wait for the onscreen instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
    • For standard recovery, press R . Select Next to proceed with the System Recovery. Select Yes to start the recovery. Insert the remaining recovery discs when directed. Or
    • For full System Recovery, press F . Select Yes to perform a full System Recovery. Insert the remaining discs when directed.
  7. When the recovery program finishes, the drive tray ejects. Remove the disc.
  8. Click Restart.
  9. After it restarts, a series of startup screens appears. To proceed with the initial Microsoft Windows setup, complete the setup screens that appear.
  10. Complete the startup, finish the registration process, and wait until you see the desktop.
  11. When you have access to the Windows desktop, connect to the Internet as soon as possible to update the DEC software as follows:
  1. Update the system virus definitions .
  2. Get the latest critical system updates using Microsoft's Windows Update .
  3. Update the HP software on the system .

If you don't have any CDs you could try the F10 key to see if you have the contents of the CDs hidden on your hard drive. It is the same steps as above except instead of inserting a CD you would use the following as step 2:
When the Compaq logo appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard. (You have only a few seconds to press the F10 key before the normal startup process continues.)
If you this doesn't work and you are certain you don't have your recovery CDs you can get a new set directly from Compaq from the following site:
