I have an Acer Aspire M1100 Desktop. I purchased it about 2 years ago. Unfortunately it did not come with a recovery disk so that i may set the computer back to factory (out of the box) settings. I was...
Unfortunately Acer no longer has recovery media available for this model Aspire. However they still have the drivers available for download so, the easiest way to get this machine as close to it's original condition as possible is as follows;
First and formost: Make backup copies of all file, pictures, music, videos, etc. that you need to keep.
Next: Download the drivers for this system by going to www..acer.com. Once you're there, select USA and click on the Service & Support Tab and click on the driver download link.
Then, make the selections for you computer i.e.; desktop, aspire, m1100, and windows operating system.
Now download all of the drivers you need for your computer and put all of these drivers on a cd, dvd, or flashdrive for later use.
Re-install Windows and allow the installation process to re-format the hard drive during the installation.
Finally, re-install any programs and data that you have and install the drivers.
Take your time and it should all fall into place. It should all take you a good half a day or less. Good Luck!
