Hello
First
what disk do you have?
one should be OS disk and a other should be drivers and software or a recovery disk.
if you have a label recovery disk start with that.
if you have an OS + driver disk start with the os disk.

put it in cd and press a key when it says so.
here is a very good guide to follow
after you installed the os then run the driver recovery disk just click next, its not that hard.

Ok, first insert de recovery disk in the laptop. Restart the computer, while rebooting, press delete, or f2, or both at the same time, the laptop will let you know by a message in the bottom "press f2 to enter set up". Now you are entering the Bios, read carefully and scroll to Advance ???? ( I don't remember the name of it) and hit enter. Look for First Boot device or drive or whatever it says, and choose CD/DVD. Not all Bios are the same so must read the instructions in theleft panel. And for your second Boot device choose the HDD. Hit the escape button.Now, to exit and save you must press f10, the computer will reboot it self and it will prompt you if you want to boot from cd drive (To boot from cd press any key) so you press enter, and after that just follow the instructions that it display while the installation.

Hi this should be a easy start for you to get use to computers.

Be certain that you want to go back to factory.

First make sure you have all your music, pictures, and all that good stuff backed up on a flash drive or disc's. After that just put the recovery disc in the drive.

Most recovery cd's can be put in the drive and follow the on screen instructions.
Or simply put it in the drive and restart the computer. If all else fails and you can't get it to load. "Check your BIOS(the little press this key to enter setup that flashes when you first turn on your computer" look for boot order and turn your CD drive first. then it will have no choice but to load the cd.

Be sure to save to an external drive (like a flash drive stick or burn a disk) any files you wish to keep, insert disk and re-boot. The PC should boot from the recovery disk automatically, and follow the prompts from there.

If the problem(s) persist, and you have the original installation disk, you may want to start fresh by re-formatting the drive (involves "fdisk" and "format", do not attempt without further instruction, will be glad to help if you want to do that!)

Hope this helps!

RESET TO FACTORY SETTINGS


What type of Laptop ? and operating system on it ?

Restoring your laptop to factory settings can take up to an hour to perform, depending upon the type of laptop and operating system on your machine. Prior to performing a system recovery, you should remove any external peripherals, such as ExpressCards, PC Cards, and USB-connected printers and hard drives. Turn on the laptop. Press the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" screen appears. Select "Repair Your Computer" using the arrow keys. Press the "Enter" key. Choose your "Language," then "Next." Login with an administrator-level username and password. Click "OK. Select "Dell Factory Image Restore," then "Next." Tick the check box next to "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition." Click "Next." Click on "Finish" after the computer has concluded the factory restoration. b> Restore on an HP b> Insert the HP recovery disk. Restart the computer, and press the "F11" key. Press the "F" key to "reinstall factory settings." If your computer's operating system is damaged, you may only see "perform a full system recovery" as an option. In this case, press "R." Insert any disks if prompted by the restoration program. Otherwise, permit the computer to restart as needed. b> Restore Via Disks (Generic) b> Insert the "Recovery Disk" or "System Recovery Disk." If you have more than one disk, make sure you insert "Disk 1" or "Part 1." Press any key to boot from CD if prompted to do so. Choose a "Full System Restore," "Restore Factory Settings," or another option worded similarly. Confirm that you want to perform the restoration. Press "Next," "Yes," or "OK," as needed. Press "Finish" or "Restart" when prompted by the computer. Hope this helps.

Cant restore factory settings Acer Aspire One A110-Ab 8.9" 1.6 GH


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.

If you have any other issue with your Acer laptop/desktop/Notebook, feel free to get expert technical assistance at

How do i restore to factory settings without disk?


I assume you mean factory installation. You need the disks. Unless there is a recovery partition, unlikely on this model. Alternatively you could find an oem windows xp home or professional depending on what coa sticker is on the laptop and install that.

Restore to factory default


Perform a system recovery:
Acer computer's do not ship with recovery CD's - there is a program that allows you to burn the disks or recover.
3 ways to recover:

1. If in Windows - Start - Programs - Acer empowering technology - Acer E-recovery management -
click on Restore at bottom then "Restore to factory default settings"
2. Or click on Burn disks instead of Restore
3. If unable to boot into Windows then tap Alt/F10 during boot right after Acer splash screen when starting up the computer.
4. This will start the Acer E-recovery program - choose Factory Default Settings and follow instructions.
