Need to reformat

Hi Guys,
I've added so much junk to my Acer Aspire 5100-5840 that it takes 1/2 hour to completely warm up. I would like to reformat and reinstall just a few of the original programs but no disk came with this computer. Can you tell me how to reformat please? Thank you, Ron

Try tapping Alt and F10 while you see the acer logo when the computer starts up. That will take u to the recovery screen through which u can reset the computer to the factory settings.

The software is on the computer on drive D. Instruction on how to do this are at the Acer website.

Now then ... don't do this ... you can always do this later.

Start removing the stuff you don't want through the ADD/REMOVE programs tool. Get rid of what you don't use then get this program "CClean" at http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner and run it ... use the two tools on the left hand side. Run each two times ... reboot and run it again ...

That should make a significant difference in the operation of your computer ...

If after you have done this ... you still want to go back to zero ... post again and state that you have already tried CClean and you still want to start all over.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

I have bought a used Acer aspire one netbook with preinstalled windows xp. I would like to have a "clean sleet" to start with. How do I do that


Hi,

In order to do this, you need to reformat your laptop. That means that you need the installer for your Operating System as well as your drivers. Secure this two installers and get back here if you need further information.

I want to reformat my acer aspire 5570 notebook and at the same time to up-grade it into 2 GB RAM memory.I"ve already got the prescribed RAM chipset


Hi, you have not said what operating system you are using, so its difficult to help with reformating. But have you tried system repair, by putting your operating CD into drive?. Repacing your ram could not be easier, just unscrew the panel underneath and replace with new chip.

Cracked screen need fitting instructions


Hi there.
Explaining how to remove the screen will take a couple of hours to type but here is a you tube video on how to disassemble an Acer One Book, its about adding memory but is an excellent guide on One book disassembly, just watch the video and do yours at the same time, once you have keyboard and the I/O plate removed you will see the cord that connects the screen to the motherboard, from then on you will find its quite simple.
