Most computers come with a recovery disk or a different partition on the hard drive that this information is stored. There different ways to get to it, depending on you rmachine's make, brand, and sometimes model #. If it came with a disk? Usually with moset modern computers, you press either f8 or f12 at boot up to get to the "boot menu". BEFORE YOU DO THIS!!! remember all your information, ie pictures, music and documents, like favorites, e-mail addresses, and resumes etc. Will ALL BE GONE!! Back this stuff up.

Also remember to maybe go and download any drivers you may need (if you do not have them on disk) especially your network drivers.

Ok so now, Put your restore disk into your disk drive, then press the f-key to get into the boot menu (this is ususally displayed on screen) then you will see a different menu pop-up with choices, select your dvd or cd-rom drive. Then your computer will boot from this disk (you may have to press any key to boot from drive) then follow the instructions and good luck!

Hope this helps

Sometimes it’s necessary to restore a computer to the original default settings. This is often needed when a vital file becomes corrupted. Restoring a computer to its original factory settings also cleans up the C drive and removes all the viruses and old programs that bog down a computer and make it slow and unresponsive. However, restoring a system should be a last ditch effort in trying to repair a computer, since restoration causes all programs and many files to be lost forever. Restoring an Acer computer to its original factory settings can be done in a few easy steps.

  1. p 1 Click “Start” menu.
  2. Step 2 Click “Programs.”
  3. Step 3 Click “Acer Recovery Management.”
  4. Step 4 Click the “Restore” button on the bottom of the dialog box that opens.
  5. Step 5 Click “Restore System to Factory Default.”
  6. Step 6 Click “Yes” in the warning dialog box which asks if you wish to continue the recovery process.
  7. Step 7 Click “Start” to restore the computer to the default factory settings.
Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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

According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the iPod by doing the following:
Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock iPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod tofactory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your iPod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the iPod, which will erase all music and data."

I cant find my password to log into my wireless

You will have to go into the routers setup and chose a new password, If it requires you to enter the old password before it allows you to enter a new one , you can find the tiny reset button on the router and press it to restore it to factory default settings, be advised though, this will reset All the settings for your router, not just the wireless password, so you will have to configure it all again.
