Question about Computers & Internet
How can i restore my acer without a restore cd. all other computers come with a cd or software but not acer. is there a way to do a hard restore.
I found this post when looking for the same info. Here's what I did to make my Acer 3680 restore without the cds.
First, I opened the Acer eRecovery Managment Program. It was under on of the Acer choices in the programs menu.
I had to do an initial setup which was just setup a password.
Next, I just shut the computer off, and pressed FN + F10 , CTRL + F10 and Alt+F10
I'm not sure which one did it for sure but one of them worked and booted me into the recovery menu.
Hope this helps!

What key to hit for factory restore
Posted on Nov 08, 2008
Have you tried to call acer for tech support and ask for a cd? normally your OS is an OEM meaning it is produced by acer for acer customers only. they should be able to provide you a cd like dell does to its customer who lost their cd.
also asked the tech whether you computer has a factory image which you can possibly use to restore your computer to its original factory settings like as if it was just first received.
if you know the exact version of windows installed inside your computer and you still have the windows xp sticker in tack on your computer try borrowing a cd and install a fresh copy. if prompted to type in a product key just simply the one that is on the sticker on your system
