Just boot from your backup disk. it will guide you to reload the Operating system (factory default).
FYI, if you haven't delete the recovery partition, you can use alt+f10 to reload. just press alt+f10 during boot.

SOURCE: I bought the Acer 6920 factory restore CD's to set

This is what happened to me, but I have a 6930. The hard drive crashed and I bought a new one then I bought the recovery disks and when I went to install it I got the same error code. Acer says that my hard drive needs to be formatted, I am not sure if that is true or not, but they have me a goose chase telling me one thing then that does not work, to finally saying I need to format the hard drive, not I have to figure out how since all the formatting links they send is for different computers then mine.

SOURCE: ACER NETBOOK MESSING UP NEED TO RESTORE IT BACK TO ORGINAL FACTORY MODE

reboot and hit the alt and f10 buttons at same time and follow the prompts

SOURCE: acer aspire 6920 back to factory settings

Acer sent me these instructions.


The other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts

Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:

“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”

If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.

If you see this:
“Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”

Then it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on your screen after a short pause..

In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.

The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs.

This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine.
If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.

I DONT KNOW HOW TO RESTORE MY ACER 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.

Acer Aspire One D250-08K Need to restore to factory settings and i have no disc. Screen is black. On start up pressed ALT F10 then nothing happens


Hi,

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

You can also create a set to Recovery disk from the recovery partition, to do so

Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Click Create Factory Default Disk, if you receive any error code or unable to burn the disk, please contact Acer Technical support at 1 800 816 2237 and order for an Recovery Disk.

Thanks and regards,

How do i set my acer aspire 5742z laptop back to its factory settings?


Hi
Please save any files or photo,s that you may have on your laptop

Then you could try this method from within your programs

Click Start

Click Programs


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 if you have them or produced them
and if you haven,t produced them yet i would make it your ist prioty when
you take back to factory settings you should see a pop up boxes asking you
to do it you will need about 4 writable dvd i was alway told to use dvd minus for the recovery disks
not the dvd plus ones

restart the laptop pressing F12 i believe

then follow on screen instructions


many thanks

please let us know if this has helped you
so that we can hopefully help others

I bought the Acer 6920 factory restore CD's to set it back to factory default but when i run it it gets to the third disk at 90% and then says Restore Failed and gives me this Error code 0xd000000a. Does...


It stands to reason that if it ran the other 2 it should run all of them. that tells me its probably not your system. The disk could be faulty. I would check with manufactuer.

I have no backup or restore systems. I need to restore to factory settings. Please help.


There are only two ways to restore to factory settings.

1. use existing disks or purchase the original Aspire restore disks.

2. buy a new copy of Windows XP and then download any missing drivers from the Acer website.

with Item 1, if you have the original sticker under the computer showing the License Product ID code, then the replacement disks from Acer will be inexpensive. If you need a new licence as well, then the price goes up a lot!

Restore to factory settings


all HP made computers (acer is owned by HP) dont come with backup disks anymore, they require you to make them when you first get the computer, so if you made your restore disksyou should be able to pop them in and boot off of them and it should restore to factory settings, if you didnt make the disks the closest thing you could do is reinstall windows completely.
