How to configuration hard drive to factory default


Step 1:
Which operating system ?
Laptop computers can be wonderful devices, except when the need to troubleshoot arises. Acer laptops are no different. A quick way to fix many problems with an Acer laptop running Windows is to reset it to factory settings. Resetting your Acer laptop to factory settings can eliminate slow operation, registry problems, virus problems and spyware issues. What's more, a factory reset of your laptop may reduce the need for a full reinstallation of Windows.

Back up all necessary data to an external device such as a disk, flash drive or hard drive Make sure all programs are closed and shut down your Acer laptop. Detach any external hardware such as an external hard drive or printer. Press the Power button to boot your Acer laptop. Press "Alt-F10" on your keyboard when the Acer screen appears at the start of the boot-up process. Wait a moment while Windows loads the reset files. Select "Restore System from factory default" in the Acer eRecovery Management window. Click "Next" on the next screen to continue. Click "Next" on the following destination information window. This will pop up a notice telling you that resetting your Acer laptop will erase all data and restore the laptop to its original settings and configuration. Click "OK" in the notice window to proceed with resetting your Acer laptop. Wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

My aspire one keeps saying 0 memory space left,and wont run certain programs.Tryed to restore to factory settings by pressing f10 button but this doesnt work


Hi

I think to restore your aspire one back to factory settings i believe you have to do this

BUT BEFORE YOU DO THIS

Make sure that you save all your photo's or files etc either to a disk or pendrive or your d drive if you hard drive is split
because back to factory settings is good
but it is exactly back to factory settings with nothing that you have put on it
everything that you put or left on the c.drive will be erased
that is why i said save anything that you want or need saving

But it also sounds a little like the fact that you may have a memory issue
or that your hard drive has too much on it and not enough free space left to run other programes

one needs to have about 10 gig of free space on the hard drive in order for things to run smoothly

so it may pay you to remove some of the stuff that you may have stored on the c drive
or remove some of the programes if you dont use them all
and do a defrag this may help to give you more space

to do a defrag

go to
start
all programes
accessories
system tools
go over and down to defragmenter
click on it and defrag the laptop and if its the ist time you have done it
wait quite a long time in fact ist time could take anywhere from 45 mins up to 2/3 hrs
also it may pay you to right click the defrag link and send it to or copy it to your desktop so that you can defrag say once a month to help things run smoothly


To go back to factory settings
go to your start tab bottom left of your screen
then go to all properties
go over and down to acer empowering technology
then acer erocovery management
click on the erocovery management
and following the onscreen instructions

good luck
hope this sorts things out for you
please let us know if fixya has fixed it for ya
