Read your manual, or goto the Acer website to find the proper keystroke upon boot to enter the recovery process. On mine it is to go into the 'setup'/bios menu & select the recovery option & reboot.

How do reset my acer labtop to factory setting like restarting the whole thing erasing all data

I dont know if this will work your notebook it work for acer 5515 so try it.
On your Logo Boot ( this is when the acer name shows in your monitor) press "ctrl + f10" or if it doesnt work try "alt + f10"
this must load the recovery system page. Now in the recovery system page
Click on " Restore System to factory Default."
Then click "Next", "Next" then "Ok"
Just wait for the process to finish and when your asked for settings. just choose your own settings.
Now after recovering to factory default. i suggest not to do anything until your pc has completed installing your drivers and various programs.
If you see a "Acer" install toolbar at the bottom of your screen, your pc should restart after atleast 2 seconds.
Now after reboot your pc should now be ready.
Goodluck. Hope i help, please rate my solution , Thanks.

I am trying to restore an Acer Aspire 5515 laptop to factory settings but alt f10 doesnt do anything and i cant find anything other than backup and restore. I dont want to restore it to any previous date...

This is for windows7 : As the laptop boot up press F2. When prompted press F8. Then choose "repair computer". from there you should know what to do.

How do i reboot a acer aspire 5515 laptop

What is the problem now. You have not mentioned. I suppose that it does not reboot. In that case at bootup press F8 to enter the Safe Mode. Once you are in safe mode, you can restore the laptop to pre- kids date. That will remove all the changes that the kids made whether it be the settings or any new prog installed and whatnot. To restore to an earlier date Start->All Progs-> Accessories-> Syatem Tools->System Restore. Once there, select a date (bold numbers in the calender that appears) and let it do what it does. Will reboot on its own and ultimately give you a system as if the kids had not touched it at all.

Acer Aspire 5515 stopped responding and will only boot as far as the Microsoft loading screen

Try tapping the "f8"key when booting - it should allow you to choose "safe mode".

If it starts up - scan the PC for errors (including bad sectors on HDD)

If it still does not boot - I'd try booting from the windows install disc and use the installers repair console.

If that wouldn't help - I'd get a bootable CD of Ubuntu or some other OS and try and repair the windows installation from there.

Acer aspire 5515 erecovery manager does not work. i can see three options restore from factory or user disc or exit the only one i can choose is exit

try restarting your machine. tap the correct key to get into your bios. most of the time its f2. in there make sure the recovery mode is active/enabled. i believe on an acer its called D2D. then when you restart your machine hold down shift key and tap f8, that should take you through the recovery. let me know if that helps

Good Luck!
