Question about Compaq Presario SR1103WM-B (PC183B#ABA) PC Desktop
Posted by Anonymous on
You can press F10 and you will get the option to take the computer to system console and then follow the steps and if you have the CD with you then follow the steps below
1 Shut down your computer and restart it. Watch for the Compaq logo, then press the "F1" key to enter setup.
2 Press the right arrow within setup to go to the Boot menu. Press the down arrow to access the "Boot Device Priority" option. Change the first boot device to CD-ROM by pressing the down arrow until "CD-ROM" is displayed.
3 Eject the CD tray and place the recovery CD that came with your computer into the tray. If you do not have a recovery CD, you can order one directly from Hewlett Packard.
4 Shut down and restart the computer. The Presario will automatically boot from the CD and begin the recovery process.
5 Select the operating system your computer shipped with. Many Compaq recovery CDs support multiple operating systems, so be sure to choose the operating system your computer shipped with.
6 Insert the operating system CD when prompted. Enter the license key for the operating system when prompted. The license key is typically found on a small tag located on the top or side of the computer.

Click Acer Recovery Management
Click the Restore button on the bottom of the dialog box that opens
Click Restore System to Factory Default
Click Yes in the warning dialog box which asks if you wish to continue the recovery process
Click yes Start to restore the computer to the default factory settings
Sometimes there is a default acer password which is quite often 000000 that is 6 zero's
or place the recovery disk into your cd
restart the laptop pressing F12 i believe
then follow on screen instructions

Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc, pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.
