Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
Can you please supply me with an easy step-by-step guide to reformatting my laptop to its original factory settings. My system didn't come with a rebooting disc, but I do have a "factory" back-up which I made as soon as I got it.
FIRST make sure you have saved any important documents. The best course is to use your multi-card slot [a Memory Stick, MultiMediaCard (MMC), Secure Digital (SD) or xD-Picture card]. Get the largest you can find and save all docs, then remove the card. THIS ARCHIVE IS SUSPECT, UNTIL IT IS SCANNED FOR THE VIRUS YOU HAD. It may be dormant in any one or more of these documents! It should be scanned by the new system, before ANY document/application therein is initiated, clicked/used!
Next follow these instructions:
Restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup
section) from hard disk, CD or DVD.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and click Next.
5 Select the desired restore action and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.
Note: The "Restore C:" item is enabled only if there is a user
backup stored on the hard disk (D:\). Refer to the Create
