    IF it is a Acer then most probably you can try the "Alt-F10" option when your pc starts up. Pressing the following keys together : ALT and F10 repeatingly should bring the acer "built-in" restore function.

What's your problem?how do i set my old computer to factor settings


you will need to put the windows disc into the cdrom drive, and set the bios so it boots from cdrom first,
if you didnt get a windows disc you should have been asked to make a recovery disc when you first bought the pc, and same procedure with setting bios.

My pc keeps restarting over and over but I don't have restore disc


Hello!

There are a lot of factors why your PC is acting that way, it could be a virus infection, hardware or software problems.

Virus Infection
- if your computer is infected or the virus behavior or capability is to keep restarting your system or PC. This could be the solution, you can install a decent virus scanner and update it always to be able to detect viruses.

Software Problem
- If your Operating System is behaving badly or some system files is missing, this can cause your PC to always restarts. To fix this is to reformat your hard drive and install OS again.

Hardware Problem
- If your RAM or one of the memory installed in your PC is defective it can cause restarting also, try cleaning your RAM's or swap other RAM to be able to determine the problem.

Hope I was able to help.

Reboot to factor sttings without disc


Try hitting ALT+F10 at startup. I believe that is Acer's recovery key sequence. Let me know if you have continued problems.

How do I restart my computer from the hard drive do I press ALT and F10 or can you tell me how to set up from a XP pro boot disc


if you want to boot setup from xp pro boot disc, you have to go first to the bios/cmos setup of your system, from there check the boot order, if you find that the first boot device is your hard drive change it, make your cd/dvd rom your first boot device and second your hard drive save the setting that you have made and restart your pc, before you restart insert the installation disc, then reboot, from there it will automatically boot in the xp pro set up disc

I lost my sound on my HP Compaq D530 computer


Check the audio setting in the volume control in the accessories folder in the start menu.  make sure that all of the audio channels are switcched on, and thaty none of them are muted.  If this does not work, try uninsztalling the audio device in the Device Manager, and restart.
