I want to reset my laptop back to original factory shipped a travel mate 4200

Follow the steps in the users manual for eRecovery manager.
Page 47, I believe, gives details.

Re-install bundled software without CD
Acer eRecovery Management stores pre-loaded software internally for easy
driver and application re-installation.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 In the Recovery settings window, select Reinstall applications/drivers and
click Next.
6 Select the desired driver/application and follow the instructions on screen
to re-install.
At first launch, Acer eRecovery Management prepares all the needed software
and may take few seconds to bring up the software content window.

Computer "rebooted" or somehting and accidently lost everything

You will need to take the hard drive out of your computer and connect it to someone else's computer as a second drive so that you can pull the files off before reinstalling Windows.
