Most Acer M1640's can be restored to factory settings using the following method:

1. Start with the computer off.
2. Power on the unit, this should cause the Acer POST screen to appear.
3. During the Acer POST screen, press and hold the Alt key on your keyboard, and tap the F10 key on your keyboard.
4.If timed correctly, this should cause the unit to go to a black screen that says "Windows is loading files...".
5. After the "Windows is loading files" screen you should be in Acer e-recovery management. At this point follow the on-screen instructions to restore the unit to factory defaults.

How. Do I take acer touch screen PCs to factory settings


Hi. Most computers have a hidden partition on the hard drive that contains all the factory default settings and system software that originally came with the PC, including the operating system (like Windows 7/8,etc.). There is a simple method to restore your computer to factory default settings using this restore partition. Please be sure to backup any data or files that you want to save on a USB flash drive or backup media first.

I presume that your computer is an Acer Aspire One model touch-screen PC. For this model of computer, in Windows, go to "Start," then "All Programs," then "Acer Empowering Technology."

Then, you want to click on "Acer eRecovery Management."Then, click on "Restore," then lastly, "Restore System To Factory Default." Your computer will then reboot/restart, and launch the Recovery Utility.

When prompted, click "Yes," then "Yes" again to restore/revert your Acer computer to its original factory default state. Please do note that if you deleted the recovery partition from your hard drive by formatting it, you won't be able to use this recovery option. If that is the case, you should be able to use the original system DVD's that came with your computer to restore it to its original factory defaults.

I do hope that I have helped you. Please feel free to ask further questions if you still have need. Thank you.

My ascer want restore factory restore


You may need to restore your Acer computer to its factory defaults if a virus damages operating files or if the system begins acting erratically for unknown reasons.


Restoring an Acer to factory defaults returns the computer to its original state when first purchased.



Click on the Start menu.

Then, select all programs, Acer Empowering Technology and Acer eRecovery Management.


If this is the first time you have opened the program it will prompt you to set up a password and create a backup CD.


Click the Restore button and select the option that reads "Restore system to factory defaults".


Wait for the computer to finish the restore process and reboot.


Restoring for the Boot Screen


If your computer will not boot up properly, you can attempt to reach the restore option by pressing the Alt button and the F10 button at the same time.


When the eRecovery menu appears, choose "restore system to factory defaults".

Wait for the recovery process to complete and the computer to restart.


Hope this helps

    I need to restore factory settings on my Compaq Mini 110 netbook, can anyone tell me how to do this?


    Hello,

    to reset your laptop, restart your computer and constantly press F11 once the first black screen on your laptop displays, or the Compaq logo display. Your computer will automatically load to recover manager and you can factory restore you computer from there.

    2nd option: click start menu, click all programs and scroll to "Hp backup and recovery" or "Backup and recovery" click it and proceed for the factory default setting.

    Good luck.

    Having problems with my acer travelmate 4060


    Get virus scanner/remover, and then try restore to a date when the computer was in full working order. If that does not work, try to backup valuable data files before original default factory settings, and get model-specific drivers etc from Acer and Microsoft websites.

    How do I restore this cable modem back to factory settings?


    One sure way to reset the modem back to factory settings, is to get on a computer that is connected to it, could be anyone. From there, you would open the internet, and then type in the address bar: "192.168.0.1". If you did not mess with this stuff eailier or ever, then the user name is blank, and the password is admin, by defualt. You would then go to security, And you will see two buttons that saids "yes", or "no" to restoring back the factory defaults, click, "yes". And then click "Apply" at the bottom of the page, it should take about a good minute to apply and restore it back to the factory defaults. And that is how you restore it back to the factory defaults.

    ****BUT BE WARNED, ONCE RESTORED, YOU HAVE TO SET UP EVERYTHING AGAIN, SUCH AS WEP CONNECTION, PORT NUMBERS, AND THE ROUTER WILL BE UNSECURED UNTIL YOU HAVE CHANGED IT.****
