The specific purpose of a Factory Reset is to wipe out everything, reinstall Windows and put the computer back to the way you got it from the store. There were all sorts of warnings before the process started.

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.

Sometimes, the recovery consoles can become corrupt. Acer also has a recovery console located in the start, all programs, acer, (sometimes maintenance as well) If not the factory recovery DVDS must be used.

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 need to reset my acer aspire 5520 to factory settings without recovery discs


Hi,

There is a recovery console on your HDD (Hard Disk Drive) this is a hidden partition on your HDD. If you power on your laptop and hold the ALT key and keep tapping the F10 key while it posts to the acer logo screen it will goto a black screen with a flashing cursor on the top left then stop tapping F10 and remove your finger from the ALT key, you will then see windows loading files. This will take you to the recovery console and from there you can select restore laptop to factory defaults or restore laptop retaining user data.

Hope this helps

I have an Acer Aspire 5520, running Vista, it is possible that the motherboard is shot. It is having troblems during start up, going on and off. Is there a way to test the motherboard? And what it would...


hello, if you are some what technical you can try few trouble shooting steps (that if its out of warranty, if its under warranty send it back).
that being said 1:try resetting bios setting back to factory default.
2: try taking one of the memory chip out and restart if that doesn't work put the first chip try taking out the other chip and tryu it again.
3: take out the Hard drive and see if you get some sort of error...
is it possible its a bad motherboard, absolutely possible but one must test and rule out simple possiblities before spending big money.
If all fails try ebay for a used motherboard/CPU.

let me know if you have any questions.
Good Luck

How do i restore my lasptop to the factory settings


To restore your acer to its factory installation status (formats C: and removes all data) press ALT and F10 repeatedly on first boot. This should take you to the acer restore program which is partioned onto the hard drive.
Alternatively use the acer e recovery program to create a set of boot disks which will allow the same operation.

Continuous ink supply system for epson r285. Printer will not recognise the cartridges as full. have used the reset button on the cartridge but still no luck. any ideas?


Resetting the Epson Ink Monitoring System -
Even though the CFS maintains a constant level of ink in the cartridges, the Epson monitoring system will signal that the cartridges are empty after a cartridge full of ink has been used. This ink level information is stored on the Intelligent cartridge chip. These cartridge chips have to be reset with out lifting the cartridges. This is done with Inksupply.com Auto Reset Chips. On older Epson printers, before the Intelligent cartridge, it is done mechanically by removing and re-inserting the Inksupply.com switch activators. CFS cartridges must be reset without lifting them.
Previous Reset Methods -
The resetting methods have evolved over the past couple of years. First the Swedish Reset method was used, then the Equalizer Program, then the F-16 Chip Resetter, and now the Auto Reset Chips.

Hope this helps you. Good luck!
