Whoa. yOU TRIED TO do what? Oh boy, now you\'re in a pickle. My suggestion to you would be to try the Factory restore again, and THIS time have it erase the previous operating system and not SAVE any settings or ANYTHING. SOmetimes, as with ACER, and WITH ACER....Doing a Factory Restore when trying to save your OLD data will corrupt the new install 70 percent of the time. My suggestion and my STRONG suggestion is to do the Factory Restore and to WIPE out the old data and let the Acer Recovery Manager walk you through the rest. The Restore Partition has ALL of the drivers and things that you will need to get the Laptop back up and running again.
If it is a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.
If you still want to restore it to factory settings, you will need the restoration CD/DVD that came with the laptop, put it in the drive and boot from it to start the restoration to factory settings. If you don't have the restoration disc, you will need a Windows installation disc to install a clean copy of Windows and wipe the HDD. Same process, put disc in and boot from it then follow the instructions for Windows installation (you will need the drivers disc though).
You have not explained what is wrong with your computer.
Is the laptop working, does it boot up into Windows?
What are you trying to restore?
Are you trying to get into a previous Restore Point?
The Access button takes you into the BIOS, you can change the BIOS settings back to the Default settings (ie the factory default settings).
It is difficult to offer a solution without knowing the exact nature of the problem.
