Question about PC Desktops
I would like to reset my Acer Aspire to factory setting.I bought my laptop without any cd. How to do it?
Restore your unit back to factory default via boot up on the ACER screen, hold down ALT and tap F10.
2. Select "Restore system to factory default".
3. Enter your Empowering Technology password and away you go.

Acer's ship with the factory recovery built into the system. As long as this has not been deleted you should be able to do it.
Click and Start - > All programs
and look for Acer Empowering Technology
Inside that folder there should be a few different programs (dont' have my acer here so i can't remember the names exactly). One of them will allow you to reset from the harddrive and another one will allow you to make your own recovery disks. I would do this first as that way you have a disk that you can put away in the closet in case your harddrive ever dies and needs to be replaced. If that is the case you NEED the disks as the new harddrive would not be setup to do it for you.

Tips for a great answer:
The Aspire One is a netbook produced by
Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional
hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a
peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate

Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc, pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.
