Hi Debra
This will describe how to reinstall the Operating system on your computer.

If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase the set online from the Acer Recovery Media Order Form..
Note: If your computer does not have an internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.

How to reset my computer to factory defalts like it was when i got it new?


Use a factory restore/recovery disc if one is provided when your computer is purchase new. Insert disc into cd-rom and change boot priority or if in startup there is a boot option, use cd/dvd rom as first boot priority and follow instruction. If one disk is not provided, with some (branded such as sony, hp, etc) a recovery/restore partition is created within the harddrive, if this is valid, when booting up the computer, there should be a F-key prompting setup or etc.... if there is press that F key and follow instruction. If partion drive is not created for recovery/resotore, then you must create one disc... You can create this disc when in the operating system, go to your start task and in "all program" see if there is any recovery tools or aplication, which is usually your brand application exm.... acer computer has "acer recovery" and use such program to create a restore disc, once disc is created, turn of computer and set your boot prefernce to cd/dvd and then insert your disc and restart your computer, a black screen will be followed and prompt you that it is booting from cd/dvd rom and follow instruction. If one disc or program is not provide, consult your computer brand and have them send a copy of your factory restore disc for a small fee at your own cost.

I want to restore my laptop to factory settings its an hp pavilion dv4000


  • Using the recovery partition
    • 1 Turn on your computer and insert your recovery disc. Press F10 during start-up to open the console. This opens up the HP recovery console.
    • 2 Click "Next" on the screen that appears.
    • 3 Choose whether you want a nondestructive recovery (one that keeps your files in place) or a destructive one (one that erases your disk and rebuilds your system to factory defaults). If most of your files aren't corrupted or are still usable, go with a nondestructive recovery. Otherwise, perform the destructive recovery.
    • 4 Follow the instructions on the prompts that appear to restore your HP Pavillion.
  • Using recovery discs
    • 1 Turn on your computer. Press F1 at the first logo screen to enter the BIOS menu.
    • 2 Move to the Boot Options section of the BIOS menu. Look for the Boot Priority menu.
    • 3 Set the Boot Priority option to booting the CD-ROM first.
    • 4 Insert the first recovery disc into the HP laptop. Then press "Enter" on your keyboard to save your settings and exit. The computer will then reboot into the recovery console.
    • 5 Follow the instructions on the prompts that appear, to restore your laptop.

    How do i reboot my cpu to factory settings, programs ect..?


    You can either use your recovery discs that came with the computer and re-boot the computer with the disc in the drive. The computer should ask you to"press any key to boot from cd" when re-booted. If it does not you will need to go into the BIOS and change the first boot device to the cd-rom drive. Or if your computer did not come with any recovery discs you can use the recovery program if it is built into the hard disc drive. You can usually activate this by pressing "alt" then "f10" when the computer first starts up. Sometimes the computer will tell you what to press to enter recovery mode when it first boots up.
