The disk-to-disk recovery may be disabled preventing the Alt + F10 key sequence running eRecovery. To enable disk-to-disk recovery, you must do the following... (do not have an external monitor attached)
1. activate the BIOS utility by pressing F2 during Power On System Test (while Acer logo displayed)
2. select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen
3. find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use F5 and F6 keys to set this value to Enabled
4. exit the BIOS utility and save changes.
The system will reboot.
5. while the Acer logo is showing, press the Alt key and the F10 key at the same time repeatedly
6. wait as Acer eRecovery starts up then follow onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.

Alternatively to the above, if Windows can be accessed, the recovery can be done by launching Acer eRecovery Management by running the program from the Acer Empowering Technology program group in the Start menu.

    My Aspire One would try to come up in windows then go to a black screen. This happened after I started to reformat it and someone turned it off. The f 12 would not open the recovery window so after trying all kinds of things and reading all kind of help,

    (sorry for the break) I did a restart, alt and f2 and went into main to make sure 2b2 was enabled. Then I tryed F12 again. Still didn't work..then I tried a restart and F8. This bought up alot of options for coming up in safe mode. I tried all kinds of things, then came up in safe mode with the command prompt. After getting out my dusty Dos for Dummies book and looking around, I went to (correct me if I don't have it in here correctly) c:\program files\acer\acererecovery\erecovery oh I can't remember the full thing.... erecovery uti.exe

Please what it is the procedure to restore the default factory system without disk


The first thing you need to do is save all of your pictures and files that you have on your computer to your email or upload them to another account that stores them. When you factory reset an Acer, it wipes it clean of everything you have downloaded on it. THIS IS PERMANENT ONCE FACTORY RESTORE IS DONE.

Turn your computer off.
Restart your computer.
When the Acer screen comes up, press Alt+F10.
Keep tapping F10 repeatedly while keeping the Alt button pressed down.
You will be asked how you want to reset your computer.
Press Factory Restore.
This may take up to an hour.

If you are asked to enter a pass code, enter your pass code or 000000.

Hit okay.
