Factory reset from CD

Click the "Start" menu on your computer and choose "Accessories." Click "System Tools" and choose "Back up" from the list. This process will back up any files on your computer that you wish. When you reset your HP to its default settings, all documents, programs and other files on your computer will be lost. Back up anything you may need later. Follow the on-screen instructions to move through the back-up wizard. When given the option "Let me choose what to back up," select all programs or documents you want to save. If you're unsure whether you'll need it, back it up just in case. Insert a blank CD or DVD to save your files. Choose your CD drive from the "Back up location" option in the backup wizard. Keep multiple blank CDs or DVDs on hand. You'll need a lot of space, and typically several CD's, to back up all your information. Click "Finish" at the end of the back-up wizard and it will begin to burn information to the CD or DVD. When prompted, remove the CD and insert a new one. Continue until the computer is done backing up your information. Label each CD or DVD in the order you burn it. This way you can transfer your information back into the computer in the order you saved it. Check your CDs or DVDs to make sure the back up was complete by opening a file from the CD. Exit any open programs. You are now ready to start the restoration process. Click the "Start" menu, "All Programs," "System Recovery," and choose "PC Recovery." Choose "PC Recovery" again once the menu opens and click "Next." Your computer will restart automatically. When it turns back on, a welcome message for the PC Recovery software will display on screen. Click "OK." Select the "System Recovery" option to restore the computer to its default settings. Follow any on-screen instructions and wait for the computer to finish resetting your settings to the default. Insert your first back-up CD or DVD to start reinstalling your programs after boot-up. Open the files and save them to the computer. After you've saved everything from the first CD, continue on with the rest. Hope this helps.

Start up

This is a rather vague question. Not sure at to what is going on with this problem so I will just assume what you need is you are having a crash with no being about to start up your computer for some reason all I can suggest since I have no further information is go ahead and shut the computer down and unplug it from the wall. Press the power button until you see it flash.
Then plug the computer in and restart your system. This will reset drivers and the computer to its default state. Then try it from there restart the computer. If this does not work, you can perform a system restore back to an earlier time. This would be my best answer for this question.
Depending on your Operating system XP or Vista or Win 7 you can go to start-run-type MSCONFIG then go in and select restore computer look for restore computer for an earlier time. If this is not already set up you cannot go back if it is you will see a little calendar if you can get there at all. Select an earlier date that you new you had no problems. If this does not work insert the either restore disc or the WinXP or Vista or the Win 7 disc in the CD or DVD ROM drive and restart the computer and do a complete wipe and re-install of your operating system from the System Boot Disk it should be set to Load from CD or DVD ROM as the first boot.
If not you will need to go into the BIOS and set the BOOT section to boot from the DVD or CD ROM as the first boot and hard drive as the second boot device. This will ensure that the disk that is inserted will boot first follow the on screen instructions. I hope this assisted you with this question. John

Your pc came with Restore CDVD or CDs.
Just insert the disc in the dvd drive, restart your pc, and follow the instructions.

Onece your pc is re-formated, take a look at the following web site:

I insert restore disk and nothing happens

Hi there.
If you don't have the option of hitting F12 to change the boot order to the CD/DVD just as the computer starts up then you will have to enter the bios to change the boot order.
Restart the machine and hit either Del or Esc to enter the bios, look for the boot order and set the CD/DVD as first boot device, hit F10 and exit the bios, the computer will restart and you should now be able to boot from the CD/DVD.
Please post back with the results and if you need anymore help.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

This can be achieved by using the CD/DVD given to you by Acer, the one which would say as Restore or System CD. It would be a bootable one so u can just put it in and start/restart you comp, it will begin installation...

go into the Bios and set it to boot from disk, restart and it will walk u through, as long as it's xp or vista. Once it loads it will give you the option to repair, and at that point it will ask for the restore disks

Packard bell restore new Hdu

From parkard bell suppport website Quote

"Step 4 - Re-installing your software
Call the help desk and ask them to guide you through the
ExtHS process.
Please have your Recovery CDs to hand when you call
the Easy Repair line.

Once you have completed the ExtHS process you will
need to re-install Windows and the other software supplied
with your Packard Bell computer. To do this follow the
steps below:
1. Disconnect all peripheral devices (web cam, printer,
scanner, broadband modem etc.).
2. Insert the Packard Bell Master CD 1 / DVD in the top
CD / DVD drive and restart your computer.
3. The CD will load and display the following message:
Please refer to the section headed Packard Bell
Recovery Program in your user’s guide for instructions
on this utility. Press OK if you want to continue
or Cancel to return to DOS.
4. Press the letter O on your keyboard to continue.
5. You will see a menu with options. Please select option 1
“Standard System Restore”
by pressing the 1 key on
your keyboard.
6. A warning message about data loss will be displayed.
Press the letter O to continue.
7. The process will take around 40 minutes. Once this is
done you will need to restart your PC. Remove the CDs
and store them in a safe place.
8. If there was a Software Library DVD supplied with your
PC you can use this to install the extra software that was
supplied with your computer. Insert this into the drive
and follow the onscreen instructions.
9. Finally, you will need to install any additional devices
(web cam, printer, etc.) and software by following the
instructions supplied with them."
