Question about Computers & Internet
I would like to set my Acer Aspire M5630 back to factory settings. Can anyone tell me how to achieve this please.
There are two (2) default/factory settings in your Desktop PC:
1. Motherboard (hardware) - you need to open the casing and set the jumpers to reset or alternately, you can simply remove the Lithium battery for a couple of minutes and the motherboard CMOS/BIOS will restore to default fail safe settings. You will notice that even the date/time will revert back.
2. OS (software) - If you are running a version of Windows, there normally is a System Restore feature where the OS will revert to the first time it was installed. Better yet, you can run the recovery/restore CD that came with the PC when it was new. Pop it in your CD tray, set the PC to boot first from your CD ROM and follow on-screen instructions.
Of course doing any of the above will restore the PC to its original settings but that would mean that most if not all of your added applications, saved files, settings and configurations would be either gone or no longer would be working.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
