Hi,

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

You can also create a set to Recovery disk from the recovery partition, to do so

Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Click Create Factory Default Disk, if you receive any error code or unable to burn the disk, please contact Acer Technical support at 1 800 816 2237 and order for an Recovery Disk.

Thanks and regards,

I've set up windows 7 on my new acer aspire notebook, but have forgotten the password and am now locked out of the computer; windows 7 is telling me that I cannot re-set the password unless I insert...


Did the sales guy tell you when to press Alt F10? Usually, Acer's recovery system can be activated by pressing and holding both the Alt and F10 keys when the Acer logo appears after you first switch the machine on. It might take a few attempts, as the timing has to be right. Perhaps hold the Alt key and keep pressing F10. If you succeed, you should see a progress bar telling you that the system is loading files. If you miss it, Windows will load as normal and you will need to restart to try again.

The recovery facility will reset the laptop to factory condition, so you can go through the Windows set up from scratch. Perhaps hold off on putting a password on your user account until you are fully set up. You can add one afterwards.

Restore to factory default


Unlike other laptops, Acer notebook/laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer Aspire 4315 to factory setting.

Step 1: Before starting your Acer Aspire 4315 laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer one to original factory settings.

Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer Aspire 4315 is reset to factory settings.

Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your notebook data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.

Just been given acer5920 how do yo reset it to factory settings


Keep hitting Alt and F10 keys together when it is first booting to get to the restore routine. This can be tricky so give it a few tries. If the restore partition was deleted this won't work and you would need to reinstall from discs to go back to a fresh install.
