If your Acer came with restore CD's than load it into you're CD-ROM drive & boot to it. From factory there is either a small partition on you're drive D:\ Stored on the D:\ are files that are used when running Restore. You will not damage you're notebook. You should go to Acer & download any new drivers for you're Acer model. After download & uncompress if they are not .exe's. Burn to a CD or DVD. Go ahead & format than reinstall you're windows.
Other items you might want to back up to CD/DVD is personal data, address book, my documents folder. Identities folder, favorites folder & desktop folder.

Good Luck!

How to restart a acer laptop


What specific Acer laptop do you have?
Does it have the Acer Empowering Technology application software installed on it?
Do you have a recovery CD to use to re-install the supplied operating system?
Does the laptop have a CD or DVD drive built-in, or do you have access to an external CD or DVD drive you can use?
Sorry for so many questions but all of the above are important if you are to restore your Acer laptop back to factory settings.

How to reinstall window in acer aspire one n214 without cd and usb


Hello, the following solution WILL cause you to lose all of your current data on your Acer Aspire One. I typed this up myself, I learned from experience.

To do what you are asking, restart your Acer Aspire One, then while it is starting up, you should see a white screen that says Acer as seen below (Not my picture). I'm not sure of the key combination but try Alt+F8, Alt+10, or Alt+F11. You should see a black screen (As I remember) but wait about 2 or 3 minutes and Acer eRecovery Management. Follow the steps to do a factory restore. ALSO: If your computer does start up (Mine wouldn't) you can go to start>All Programs>Acer eRecovery Management and follow the steps there. Your Acer will be like brand new.

Hope I helped.

How do i restart my acer aspire 5290 laptop back to factory settings. it has a virus and i want to delete it all back to factory settings


You need to reformat your laptop then reinstall everything. When doing this, you need:

  1. You OS Installer (Windows needs a valid CD-key)
  2. Motherboard Installer (This CD/DVD Installer is usually shipped with your laptop when you bought it. This CD contains all the required drivers to make your laptop works perfectly back to its original state.
  3. If all these installers are ready, insert the Windows CD installer and restart your system.
  4. It will start a setup program on DOS mode. Just follow the on-screen instructions. Make sure that you "Delete" the existing partitions and "recreate" them. It will then format the drive and start the installation.
WARNING: Formatting your drive will delete all your personal files as well. Make sure that you back up all necessary files before doing these steps.
