    Thanks for your help - you probably solved the problem by just saying not sure. I am more than a novice but do try little projects and get very frustraited when I can't do something. It's nice to know I'm probably not as thick as I thought - Thanks

If you don't have disks, it may be possible that a factory default image can be restored from a hidden partition on the Extensa 5220 hard disk drive. On powering up, press the Alt key and the F10 key together (at the same time) repeatedly and after a minute or so you should start Acer eRecovery Management. Then, follow the on screen directions to restore the factory default image.

How can i factory set my acer extensa 5220

To restore your laptop you need the restore cd/dvd that came with your laptop when you bought it.
Please be adviced that restoring your laptop will cause you to lose all your data. Backup any data you would like to keep, to an externad drive or usb.

To restore your laptop do the following:
Insert the restore cd in your cd/dvd drive and restart your computer.
When you see the message "Press any key to boot from cd" press enter.
Then follow the on screen instructions to restore your laptop.

Speakers have stopped working and no sound is there Acer Extensa 4620Z

Check you have Windows Audio service is running or not or else you have muted the volume with mutimedia button available on the Notebook.

In your RUN Prompt, type "services.msc", press "Enter" key.
Scroll down till you reach "Windows Audio" check the "Status" is "statred" and the "Startup type is "Automatic". if not double click and change the startup type to "automatic" and click the start button to start the service.

Check the Sound button in your notebook.if you have muted. Sound can be muted from the computer control panel too.

Go to Control panel---->Click sound and in "Playback tab,Click Properties, in "Devices usuage", Select "Use this Device (enable).Click "OK" twice.

That's it.

Note : If Audio driver is missing the above step will not work.Install the Audio driver if the Audio driver is missing in the Device Manager.

That's it.
