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.

SOURCE: Reset Acer Aspire One to factory settings--clean hard drive

Unlike other laptops, Acer laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer laptop to factory setting.

Step 1: Before starting your Acer laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer laptop to original factory settings.

Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your laptop data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.

How do i reset my acer aspire 5610


Reset? What do you mean reset? Exactly what is it you are trying to do? To me, reset means restart by hitting the power button. Are you talking about running a System Restore to get you computer back to a date and time when it was running correctly or are you talking about a System Recovery that will set your computer back to when you first purchased it?

    My acer aspire one says is missing or corrupt system32 file how can i fix that?. EDWIN


    A system32 file is a program file for your 32bit OS (Operating System) you could attempt a system restore from your start menu by finding the system folder and rolling your PC back to an earlier date, another last resort alternative is to reinstall your system or use your restore partition to reset your acer to factory settings by pushing F10 or F11 (dont remember which) when your system is booting up

    Booting Problem


    Insert the recovery disc, included with your laptop when you unpacked it, reboot the laptop and follow the instruction.

    If your laptop came with a recovery partition, restart it and hit F8 function key while it is booting up. This should bring up a menu, select the recovery option.

    Note:This will reset to factory setting - All your data will be lost.
