If you have the original disks, just put in the disk #1 and it will walk you through it... If not.....
You will need to have an operating system handy such as windows xp or win 7.
You would
1. Format the drive to wipe it of all information
2. Load the operating system
3. load any drivers or specialty drivers for the sound, video, usb, lan, camera, and other periferials
4. download and update the operating systems of all of the security updates and update the antivirus definitions
5. download and install all of the add on utilities that are needed in todays world such as Firefox and Chrome browsers, Adobe flash, Winzip, Winrar, Quicktime, Realplayer, Divx video player and ac3 sound filter and many other utilities
6. Have fun.
So, how do you format a drive?
1. Reboot the system and hold down the F8 key as it boots.
2. A menu will appear. Choose 'start safemode with command prompt"
3. when the C: command prompt appears type FORMAT C:
4. The system will warn that all will be lost, type Y for yes and follow the prompts.
6. after it is done (about 30 min) put the Operating system CD in the drive.
7. Reboot the system with the disk in the drive.
8 follow the prompts and finish installing the utilities, updates, and utilities listed above
9. have fun
PLEASE VOTE 4 THUMBS UP FOR ME!!!!!
Thanks,
James.

Restore factory setting


John,

Dell Factory Image Restore The Dell Factory Image Restore tool replaces PC Restore. Access it from the F8 boot menu while booting up.

Once you have all the options on the screen, choose repair your computer and follow the prompts to restore.


CAUTION:
This utility formats the operating system hard drive partition prior to restoring the factory image. This means data on that partition is deleted and cannot be recovered.
If the customer creates a secnd partition with a third-party utility, Dell Factory Image Restore is not affected as long as the image partition is not removed.

Thank You,

How do you do a factory restore on an acer travelmate 5742? where do u start?


Hi,
I see, Follow the details below to be able to do a Factory Restore on your Acer.
  • Click on Start
  • Select and Click Programs
  • Look for Acer Recovery Management and click on it
  • There will be a dialog Box on the Bottom click "Restore"
  • Then click on Restore System to Factory Defaults
  • Then Click YES if you are sure to restore the system and that you have already backed up any personal or important documents
  • After clicking YES click on START to begin the process of restoring the system back to Factory Defaults
Note: If the Original Hard drive Settings/Partition have been deleted or changed it is possible the Restoration to Factory Defaults may not work.
I hope that this will help your restore your machine to Factory Defaults.
Have a nice day,
mvincentc
