Hi
If you have the option to save anything like files and photo's stored on your hard drive you should do this before you attempt a recovery because you will loose all files it will format your hard drive
back to when you bought it

Normally when you hit the power key you also tap the ALT+ F10 key a few times until it gets you
into the acer recovery manager and when asked for a password try 000000 thats is ( 6 zero's ) and follow the on screen instructions


if the F10 option dont work

then restar laptop and tap the F2 key to get you into bios and go over to about the 3rd of 4th option
and make sure that the D2D is enabled if it is not then click on it and change to enable
then click F10 to save and exit


then go back and try the ALT+F10 keys again

Hi, I want to do a factory restore on my acer 3690 aspire. where can I get the cd to do it ?


The below procedure will only work if you still have your original hard drive in the PC and have not reformatted or reinstalled windows from another media source.

On bootup you will see a message on the Acer splash screen to get into "SETUP".
This will take to your Acer BIOS and it is accomplished by either hitting the F2 or DEL F2 key.

Once inside the BIOS navigate to the menus and make sure that D2D option recovery is enabled. If you do not see this D2D option then you can exit and should not have to do anything else.

Restart the PC again, hold down the ALT and the F10 key altogether, which allows to start the recovery partition and load your system to factory default.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

How to reboot my acer aspire 3690 to factory condition


On startup you will see a message on the acer splash screen to get into "SETUP". This will either be the DEL key or the F2 key.

Go into your BIOS and make sure that D2D recovery is enabled. If you do not see this D2D option then you can exit and should not have to adjust anything else.

when you restart the PC again, hold down the ALT and tap on the F10 key, this will start the recovery partition and load your system to factory default.

This option will only work if you still have your original hard drive in the PC and you have not reformated or reinstalled windows from another media souce.

Reboot the computer, and carefully watch the screen.
One of the options should be to access the "recovery partition".
Press the listed key to boot from that partition,
and to "restore" your software to the "factory" level.

I want to take my acer 3690 back to when i bought it


There is no way to roll back from Vista to XP. If you still have an XP CD Key you can re-install using a windows disk of the same type using your code. All the drivers should be downloaded first to a CD from the manufacturers web site. Plus any data you would like to keep.

As long as you burned the recovery media when you got the laptop or they actually shipped with recovery media, then you should be fine.

Restart after erasing hard drive


I think either you will have to make sure that your drive, your cd drive, is booting up,It should be f2
to boot your computer, it will give you a selection to boot from, your cd is the correct selection.,if no results,you must have deleted the backup partition or recovery partition when you erased the partition.Drive eraser would do that most likely.it writes over your drive so software is unrecoverable it is a security measure for valuable files not to be seen or stolen thanks kawuna

Acer Aspire 3680 Complete Restore


http://www.acerpanam.com/us Go to that website and click on "eRecovery Disc Purchase". Acer does not come with recovery discs. It only comes with a recovery partition from which you can make recovery discs. If they discs were not made you'll find the provided website useful. If you're trying to recover from your recovery partition, then continuously hit the F11 key at startup. This F11 option is not always displayed. If this doesn't work then your hard drive is corrupt or damaged and you will need the discs (and potentially a new hard drive).
