Hi,

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.

Have you tried booting in safe mode? Turn off computer, then turn it on and immediately hit the F8 key repeatedly until you see Safe Mode as an option. Take the safe mode option. Once it boots up all the way in safe mode see if you can go to Start/Programs and look for eRecovery to restore back to factory settings. If not, you should be able to get it back to factory settings in spite of the error code. Boot your computer and and try the Alt+F10 key to get the factory setting started. Try Alt+F10 when you see the Acer Logo. If it doesn't work try it when you first turn on the system.

I want to take my acer aspire back to the factory setting but dont have a cd how do i do it


Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc,  pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.

I have an acer aspire M1640 desk top. It won't let windows start or even download the factory recovery disk. It tells me a driver didn't get instaled. HELP


Sounds like a bad driver has been installed. Try to use system restore by pressing F8 at startup and hopefully it will let you start PC in Safe Mode then choose system restore and set a date to b4 this happened...good luck from Scott

Power supply fo acer Aspire SA 60 desk top


Hi,

To my knowledge, there is no limit to the maximum wattage that can be installed in your PC. The only limitations would be:
  • the physical dimension and mounting holes;
  • the connectors and wire/pin arrangements;
  • it should not be lower than what you currently have.
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.

Display problem


YOUR COMUTER GRAPHICS CARD PROBABLY NEEDS A UNGRADE, VIDEO GAMES PUT A LOT OF STRESS ON THE PROC NEED TO CLEAN OT THE PROCESSOR AND THE VIDEO CARD TO DELIVER GAMING PERFORMANCE. SINCE YOUR SYSTEM WASN'T DESIGN FOR GAMING IT MAY CAUSE A LOT OF MEMORY CONFLICT WITH THE RAPID TRANSFERRING OF INFORMATION FROM THE PROCRSSOR TO THE RAM, TRY UPGRADING YOUR RAM AND VIDEO CARD AND U SHOULD HAVE BETTER PERFORMANCE WITHOUT SHUTDOWN. U MAY DUST OUT THE COMPUTER DUST ON THE PARTS CAN MAKE THEM OVERHEAT AND SHUT DOWN
