Send me youre email and I'll give link for software to remove bios passwords safely.
when u say factory settings I assume you mean bios settings and not windows.unless u have a recovery program installed on pc you cant set windows back to factory .
but if you have recovery program installed this software will find and/or remove them and reset bios to factory.
it has many programs on it ...it starts from cd not hd or windows.
perfect for lost or unknown passwords

When you first turn on your computer, press the F10 key until it boots into the recovery partition. Once there, select advanced then follow the onscreen instructions. Warning: This will erase all of your data.

Some newer HPs use a different key then F10; if F10 doesn't work, then look on the screen it should tell you which key to press to start recovery.

What do you mean by factory settings? You have to be more specific. Also why would you need to do that. A laptop doesn't really have factory settings its not like an appliance or a phone.

I dont know how to restore my acer with linux back to factory settings


The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop. A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop. It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature. You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard. Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.

Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive. Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook. Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load. Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen. Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot the netbook when you are prompted. Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

How to reset back to factory settings


To reset your laptop to its factory state you need to restart or turn it on, then just tap F10, It will ask you on how would you loke to restore then select Restore system to factory settings. Usually it would ask you for a password just etern six zeros "000000" it should work. Please wait until the restore process is completed.

Ibm restore to factory setting


You have not explained what is wrong with your computer.
Is the laptop working, does it boot up into Windows?
What are you trying to restore?
Are you trying to get into a previous Restore Point?
The Access button takes you into the BIOS, you can change the BIOS settings back to the Default settings (ie the factory default settings).
It is difficult to offer a solution without knowing the exact nature of the problem.
