If you really want to reset your computer to the state it was in when you purchased it then you will need to get a hold of some recovery disks. I found a site that sells a number of recovery disks for various systems and got the link to the specific one for your model of computer http://recovery-disks.com/acer/acer-aspire-m1201.html. They will send you specific instructions on how to use their recover disks.

Hard reset


You may need to restore your Acer computer to its factory defaults if a virus damages operating files or if the system begins acting erratically for unknown reasons.
Restoring an Acer to factory defaults returns the computer to its original state when first purchased.

Click on the Start menu.
Then, select all programs, Acer Empowering Technology and Acer eRecovery Management.
If this is the first time you have opened the program it will prompt you to set up a password and create a backup CD.
Click the Restore button and select the option that reads "Restore system to factory defaults".

Wait for the computer to finish the restore process and reboot.
Restoring for the Boot Screen

If your computer will not boot up properly, you can attempt to reach the restore option by pressing the Alt button and the F10 button at the same time.


When the eRecovery menu appears, choose "restore system to factory defaults".

Wait for the recovery process to complete and the computer to restart.

I have forgotten my password to my dell c521 computer, not the system password


As far as I know, there are a lot of tools and utilities that can be downloaded and used to recover, retrieve, reset windows password. However, I've tried a couple of these utilities through the years. The free software can help you, but you have to learn some computer skills and waste a lot time on learning. If you want to save more time, maybe Google third party password recovery tool or Google Window Password Seeker can help you.

Want to reset to factory... i have an hp pavilion 7920


Most manufacturer's reserve a small partition on the stock hard drive for returning the PC to factory state. When booting the PC, an option should show "repair your computer" or something along those lines. Try pushing either F12 or F8 when booting to bring up this menu.

When I start my emachine T3306 gets a black screen with just the cursor? I do not have a system recovery disk. What do I do?


you need to get a operating system boot disk such as ultimate bood disk ( google) or you can go to your local computer store and purchase one of there products that have recovery disks. Your problem is either virus or hard drive failure or maybe system driver is hanging your system. The recovery cd will help you boot into your system and get some more info. You can also call your computer maker and purchase your install media kit which will contain your operaing system and drivers and once run will return your system to it's factory state when you purchased it. Your computer make will charge a fee for these disks, all computer manufacturers charge differently

Cd rom not working


Backup all your data, copying data in My Documents, Desktop, copying favourites and eventually Outlook data. Copy the data on an external hard disk.
When everything has been saved do a Complete Recovery using the Sony Recovery CD.
The computer will go back to factory settings, in the same state as it was when you purchased it.
That is the easiest way to proceed when you get multiple system problems of this kind.

Formatting and HP recovery


If the recovery partition is still on your pc and depeding which model you have which you did not specify. But lets give it a shot. Turn on the pc. The first screen should be the HP screen. On the bottom right hand corner of the screen should be an option stating, Press F10 or another F key for system recovery. Press that key. It will take you into a blue screen I believe to the recovery program. The screen will state that it will do a recovery of the operating system and other but will not destroy your data. You will see advanced. Click on that. It will now say it will perform a destructive recovery. continue with that it will repartition and format your drive and return the pc to the factory settings and install all software that was there original. or If you have the recovery cd set that came with the computer. Insert disk 1(recovery cd) it should be labeled and restart the computer If you have neither you will have to you can purchase the recovery cd's at hp's website. If this does not help please post a comment. Specify the model # of your pc and I would be able to help you better.
