Re: how to reformat Acer Aspire 3002LCi Laptop Computer

Acer Aspires don't ship with Install CDs or DVDs, acer suggests that you create your own intall/backups with their empowerment utilities, I know this because I have an An Acer Aspire. A few questions if I may, first have you backed up your hard drive yet? Is there anything important on it, that if you lost it you would be upset? If so then I strongly urge you to backup any important files before you format, why is it you want to format? Please ask yourself these questions before you proceed, I don't believe any of us here would want to be responsible for showing you how to wipe out your hard drives data, so with that said I won't go any further till you have asked and answered those questions.

Hope this helps :)

How to reboot my laptop acer 5517

If you have a recovery partition, when computer boots hit "alt-F10" during boot. If you do not have a recovery partition, insert recover CD's prior to booting and it should go through it.

I have acer aspire 3002lci . I want restore factory settings. I won't have recovery cd.How to do? i had done with alt+f10 it doesn't work.

The ALT+F10 routine should work if the ALT key is held down and the F10 key is repeatedly depressed before and during the Acer logo display.
If you still have a working M/C then the recovery routine can be accessed from START / ALL PROGAMS and selecting Acer Empowering Technology and then Acer recovery Management.
This might differ a little because you have a netbook

How can i reformat my laptop on CD acer aspire 3000

Using Acer eRecovery Management
You can launch Acer eRecovery Management in a number of ways:
Acer eRecovery Management requires a password to activate. The default password is six zeros (0s).
Note: These steps will return the system to the original factory installation including all factory installed drivers and applications.
Back up all data prior to using this procedure.
  1. Plug in the AC adapter and battery.
  2. Turn the system on
  3. Immediately, press ALT on the keyboard and start tapping F10.
    Continue holding ALT and tapping F10 as the unit boots up.
  4. A screen stating "Starting Acer Erecovery" should appear.
    (Release ALT and stop tapping F10 at this point)
  5. There will be 4 options:
    1. Restore system to factory default
    2. Restore system from user backup
    3. Restore system from cd/dvd
    4. Exit
From the Start menu, go to Start > (All) Programs > Empowering Technology > Acer eRecovery Management.
Or try this By clicking on the Empowering Technology icon from your desktop, or pressing the key to launch the Empowering Technology user interface. Select the Acer eRecovery Management icon.

How to reformat a laptop w/o drivers available

If your hidden partition is still in tact you can use the recovery function.

When you boot up the laptop press Shift + F10 when you see the Acer screen.

If that doesn't work try CTRL + F10 or ALT +F10 or Fn to F10

If you just want to format then you'll need a boot cd from any Operating System. XP, Vista, Linux, etc.
