I do not have a CD drive on mine, but there is a system recovery partition. If you boot to that you can then choose to format your drive and have it reinstall everything like it was from the factory. Try doing the following:

1. Turn on the computer
2. Press and hold Alt + F10 (you release both keys after the Acer e Recovery Manager starts)
3. Click on Restore System to Factory Default
4. Ensure the netbook is plugged into AC power instead of running off the battery and click OK

Sorry to hear about your lost pics. That stuff is priceless. To avoid this I partition my hard disk using c: for windows and d: for storage. If windows crashes and you are forced to reformat your precious data is still safe in the d: drive.

Hello,

You didn't mention which version of (I assume Windows) you are using or are wanting to use.

Generally when you want to reformat the hard drive on a machine it involves re-installing the operating system also. A freshly formatted hard drive has nothing on it and so the computer won't boot.

Here is what you need to do:

You will need an installation disk for what ever version of Windows you plan to run.

Also you should have a drivers disk for your machine. This is not absolutely necessary but is by far the easiest way to deal with the drivers.

Place the Windows installation disk in the CD/DVD drive and reboot the machine. Read the messages provided on screen. When you get to the point where the installation program asks you if you want to create a new partition on your drive select yes. It will also allow you to delete the old partition. You want to choose that option and then install Windows in the new partition.

After the Windows installation is complete you will need to install drivers for your machine. If you have the drivers disk for your machine put it in the CD/DVD drive and select 'Install All Drivers' from the menu. (You can purchase a drivers disk for your machine from Acer, or elsewhere on the web.)

If you do not acquire a drivers disk for your machine you will have to download them one at a time from Acer. You may or may not be able to download them all.

After upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 and reformatting my hard drive, my built-in microphone no longer functions at all. It can be adjusted, but does not actually pick up any sound. It seems to...


Well the first thing that you have to keep in mind before reformatting your hard drive is to ensure the backups of all driver devices on your laptop. Since you already reformatted, the best way is to look up the correct drivers for the Acer Aspire. I would start looking at the Acer site. Go to this site and scroll down to the audio driver. http://www.laptop-software.com/acer-software/acer-aspire-8730-notebook-windows-7-drivers/

Factory reset without using a disk and ALT + F10 doesnt work


his MIGHT work:

1. Click "Start," "Turn Off Computer" and then "Restart", if it is on. If your computer is off, turn it on by pressing the power button above the keyboard.
2. Press the "F2" function key on your computer's keyboard to enter the BIOS utility.
3. Use the laptop's right arrow key to scroll to "Main." Confirm that the "D2D Recovery" is "Enabled." If the D2D option is "Disabled," scroll down to the option using the down arrow key. Press "Enter" to change the option to "Enabled."
4. Use the laptop's right arrow key to scroll to "Exit." The "Exit Saving Changes" option will be highlighted. Press "Enter" to save the settings and exit the BIOS utility. Your Acer Aspire will restart.
Reformatting the Acer Aspire
1. Press the "ALT" and "F10" keys together while your computer is restarting and the Acer logo is showing to enter the Acer Aspire's reformatting utility.
2. Follow the on-screen prompts. Your laptop's hard drive will reformat and the original applications will be reinstalled. Your computer will restart after the reformatting process is complete.
