Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)

Hello, I try to format my computer. Can someone help me please. thank you

most laptops that have the factory load on them, you restart and press a combination of either ALT F10, F11 or CTRL F10, F11 or just F10 of F11 by itself at boot up.

You should get a restore type menu.

I have some virus in my laptop(acer extensa4630). I'm trying to format it but unable to format...


You can set your computer back to factory settings. To do so:

Turn Off the computer; now hit the power button,, as soon as you hit the power button press ALT key and then tap F10 key (i.e ALT+F10); this will come up with the recovery screen, select full system restore or Factory restore and follow onscreen instructions.

Thanks and regards,

Alt f10 doesnt work on my acer 5630 how can i use the restore to manufacture settings?


You can use the recevery CD's or DVD's you got when you brought the laptop OR the ones you made yourself on prompt from the Acer Software when you turned on the laptop for the very first time.

Sometimes, the recovery partition (which is hidden on the hard drive from normal use), may become corrupt or is deleted by format. In such cases only recovery from the Acer recovery DVD's or CD's is the solution.

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.

How restore to systeme

This is the only way to restore the system by switching on the laptop and before it show Acer on the press ALT + F10 in this order ALT + F10, ALT + F10 this will take you to the restore mode and from there you click on restore to factory defualt BUT if you formated the Data (d:\) drive then you have to buy vista and download the drivers from the internet

This is the only way I know to restore the OS 100% original
Kind regards mervin
