    Emachine 3653 factory restore


    You can use the Restore CD that came with the computer. The eMachines restore disk sets your PC back to factory settings with the original operating system and programs that were shipped with the computer. Doing so resolves many problems that can arise from long-term computer use, viruses, or the operating system slowing down.


    1. To do a factory restore insert the restore CD then reboot the computer. When prompted, press any key to boot from the CD.


    2. Select the option to "Reformat the drive to factory settings."

    3. Follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the operating system and original software that came with your computer.

    4. Once the Restore finishes, you can re-install all the programs that you added to the computer as well as restore your files.


    Reminder: Reformatting your computer erases all of your installed programs, personal documents, pictures and music. If you have the ability to, back up all of your personal data using a removable flash drive, external hard drive or DVDs before doing a Factory Restore.

    How resstore my acer aspire to factory settings?


    There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process. If there is not a disk,then follow this steps:
    1.Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
    2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
    3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
    4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
    5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
    6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

    hope this helps,Goodluck..
