Question about Acer Extensa 5420-5687 Notebook
Hi and welcome to FixYa!
If you are tired of using recovery discs and having to deal with that whole issue, there is another way to factory restore your computer.
The first thing you need to do is save all of your pictures and files that you have on your computer to your email or upload them to another account that stores them. When you factory reset an Acer, it wipes it clean of everything you have downloaded on it.
Turn your computer off.
Restart your computer.
When the Acer screen comes up, press and hold Alt+F10.
Keep pressing F10 repeatedly while keeping the Alt button pressed down.
If computer starts up normally, repeat these steps until you are asked to reset
You will be asked how you want to reset your computer.
Press Factory Restore.
This may take up to an hour.
If you are asked to enter a pass code, enter your pass code or 000000.
Remember, this may take a few attempts, but this does work for Acers! You may choose to not restore it to factory and restore it to a previous date when you were not having issues. Keep those options in mind.
