You can reset it to factory with recovery disk.
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios then go to boot option and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom then it boot with that disk.
Then follow the procedure and delete all partition then create again then format 1 partition then it install windows.
And if you haven't recovery disk.
Then if you have disk to disk recovery then you can do it without disk.
For that again enter in bios with above method then check main that D2D
is enabled then save settings .
Then when you power up the computer press Shift+F2 or ALT+F2 then you find recovery then restore all to factory .
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Hello ther Tommy,

That would mean reformatting the laptop. If you still have the windows installation cd, you can reinstall windows but make sure you have a genuine license.

Also, there could be ways causing the slowdown of your daughter's laptop. Try the following suggestions before doing a reformat.

1. Clear up your computer's cache/cookies. If you are using Internet Explorer 7, click on Tools and Internet Options. On the browsing history click Delete and Delete All button. If you are using Firefox, hold CTRL, SHIFT and Delete from the keyboard. Select all boxes and click Clear Private Data.

2. Defragment your computer. Click Start > (All)Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter and click Defragment. Disk Defragmenter is a tool to increase access speed by rearranging files on your hard disk.

3. Scan your computer with antivirus. I can recommend this free and effective online scan http://eset.com/onlinescan

If all of the 3 above has been done and still no progress, then you can go ahead and reformat the laptop. Should you need futher assistance, please let me know.

Thank you and Good luck!

    Open your computer and upon bootup, enter the bios settings by pressing Delete button a couple of times. Once inside your bios, click boot and set your cd drive to be the first priority. Save your settings, insert your WIndows installation CD and restart your computer.

    Kindly check HERE for the detailed installation with screen captures.

    Should you need further assistance, please let me know.

You can download and burn a disc for this called Linux System Rescue. It will erase everything on hard drive all the way to just bios, then you can reinstall new windows and be like new again. Or right click on c: drive in my computer and format the hard drive. (NTSF)
Just like new.

There is a free registry cleaning program called Eusing registry cleaner you can download and significantly boost performance. Also defragmenting your hard drive helps a little also, but registry cleaner is great. More ram the better too.

Reset acer


The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop.
A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop.
It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature.
You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard.
Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.
Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives.
Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
Go to Start > Restart to reboot your netbook.

Hold down Alt and F10 when you see the Acer logo on the screen.
The recovery menu will load.
Hit Enter and then Next to see your recovery options.
Choose Factory Restore to set your netbook back to factory settings.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears.
Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
Restore your saved files from the flash drive.
or
When a vital file becomes corrupted, it might be necessary to restore a computer to its original factory settings.
This process also cleans up the hard drive and removes old programs that can make a computer slow and unresponsive.
But, because restoration wipes away all files you have installed or created, it should be a last-ditch effort in trying to repair a computer.
If you have reached this point with your Acer laptop or desktop, the manufacturer provides a utility to restore the factory settings.

Open the Windows Start menu by clicking on the icon in the lower left corner of your desktop.
Click All Programs, then the Acer folder.

Select Acer eRecovery Management to open the utility.
If a Windows prompt asks for permission to run the program, click Yes.

Click the Restore button in the pane on the left side of the program window.
Click Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults.
Select the Yes option in the dialog box that asks you to confirm the action, and click Start.
Click OK in the second confirmation dialog box to restart the computer.
Click Next in the warning window that appears after the computer reboots.
This confirms that you realize restoring the computer deletes any data stored on your hard drive.

Click Next again in the Restore Destination window, and click OK in the popup that gives you one last warning about deleting your data.
The restoration process will begin.

Click OK when the utility lets you know that the restoration is complete.
The computer will restart, and Windows will finish the recovery process.

Step 1:
Which operating system ?
Laptop computers can be wonderful devices, except when the need to troubleshoot arises. Acer laptops are no different. A quick way to fix many problems with an Acer laptop running Windows is to reset it to factory settings. Resetting your Acer laptop to factory settings can eliminate slow operation, registry problems, virus problems and spyware issues. What's more, a factory reset of your laptop may reduce the need for a full reinstallation of Windows.

Back up all necessary data to an external device such as a disk, flash drive or hard drive Make sure all programs are closed and shut down your Acer laptop. Detach any external hardware such as an external hard drive or printer. Press the Power button to boot your Acer laptop. Press "Alt-F10" on your keyboard when the Acer screen appears at the start of the boot-up process. Wait a moment while Windows loads the reset files. Select "Restore System from factory default" in the Acer eRecovery Management window. Click "Next" on the next screen to continue. Click "Next" on the following destination information window. This will pop up a notice telling you that resetting your Acer laptop will erase all data and restore the laptop to its original settings and configuration. Click "OK" in the notice window to proceed with resetting your Acer laptop. Wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

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.

well you have many problems at the moment ,but my first efforts would be to run anti spy ware and anti virus program as they can do strange things to a computer, you can get both free from GRISOFT "AVG"

another option is to use the recovery disc's to re-install all the software back to the factory settings,as this will install all the drivers again for your sound & wifi and everything else.

good luck
