    Unfortunatly mu laptop did not come with a vista disk or a recovery disk and this problem happened before i could back up system. I would recomend to any user using vista to make the recovery disk before installing any software. you learn by your mistakes :(

Hi,
Mark if you have the Acers restore or rescue disks, you should be able to use these to get your system back up and running.
I,d suggest your problem/conflict With your Application Crash is an incompatable program with vista.

The Only other suggestion i have, is to boot the computer with Vista in the CD/DVD Drive, and re-install over the top of your existing system.

Alternative is to Install Windows XP, More reliable Tried And Tested. And definately more Compatable with Software.

I have a packard bell imedia mc 1538 and need to resore to factory settings, have tried using F10 key with no result just goes to start up. The master cd just does a system restore and not the factory...


If the file that holds the factory settings is gone then there is no way to restore the factory settings back. You can however reinstall windows if you got a hold of a windows disc in the version you want. You can use the windows key on the computer somewhere to activate the windows. I would suggest doing a system restore the the last restore point and removing any unwanted things from there.

I want to restore my Acer Aspire M1100 desktop computer back to factory settings. I have the disks from Acer, one is a System Disk and one is a Recovery Disk. Is there any way to restore/reinstall Vista...


Hello,

If you used the restore disk on your computer it will erase all files, and all your programs. the restore Factory settings means "ALL" settings the time you created the CD for the restore.

If you have an individual Vista Installer CD with the Serial you can use it and use restore option.

Thank you for using Fixya
Hope this helps.

WILL not resetting to factory settings


You will need to burn a Recovery CD / DVD set from the icon located on the desktop/ In your Acer Home Start utility (The window loading at startup) or from the Start Menu.

Using this disk you will be able to do a System Restore back to original factory setup.

How to back up windows vista and how to restore if any problem


Click start,all programs, look for Acer folder, you are looking for recovery media creator, have a couple of blank DVD-/+R and follow the instructions to create a restore set, you can only make one set,(until you restore again, then you COULD make another set). This only makes a copy of the factory installed software, it doesn't back up any of your personal data.
To restore, put the 1st disk in, and restart the PC, follow the prompts to boot to CD/DVD and start restore
