1. before formating your netbook make sure that you have all the necessary cd/dvd (OS, drivers, etc) that you need for the procedure.
2.make sure that you save all your files in the usb or cd because once you format it is all gone.
3. check if your netbook have optical drive.
4. check if you have the license operating system or if you are installing the recommended operating system for the netbook.
5. you are good to go. format you netbook but make sure that you know how to do it.

Right click on the partitions you want to format ( except the one you have installed the OS on) and click format. After that you should reinstall your OS, this will also format the partition where you have your OS installed.

Hi My Acer Netbook cant seem to start windows, i have tried going through all the safe modes, and it wont even get to that! It starts to load windows but then everhthing just goes blank!


Your netbook may have been infected by a virus and has stopped your computer from working.
If you can boot up with the Windows installation CD and do a repair then it may get your computer operating again.
If not you need to boot up with the Windows installation CD, then delete the existing partition, create a new partition and format the hard disk (not a quick format), then complete the Windows installation.
then install the Acer netbook device drivers and your programs.

Download the device drivers from the Acer WEB site. Makesure you select the model of your laptop the drivers you that require thatmatches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link toget to the Acer support: -

Been working with iyogi and they found that my root system has a virus and is corrupted....I didnt get a restore disk with the eee1000hd so how do I format c: and reinstall windows xp?


Hi btray,

Before you format C:\ You can take the Hard Drive out and use an external usb connector and connect it to another PC and do a virus scan on it. Hopefully that will save you from having to do a clean install of XP.

Hope this helps. Give me a shout if you need further help:)

My mini netbook has virus and it is not letting me to open anything. i have macafee on it, but still unable to do perform anything. How i can remove the virus from netbook? OR how can i restore it to...


Be sure your firewall is activated. You can chose to use the windows firewall pre-installed on your Netbook or you can activate the firewall in you anti-virus package.
Run a cleaning software designed for detecting spyware on a regular basis to maintain Netbook processing speed and to remove items picked up by your Netbook while surfing the web. CCleaner is a solid free version of spyware cleaner.
If you suspect malware on your computer because it is running slowly, has strange pop ups or the anti-virus software detects it, then download software designed to find spyware and eliminate spyware. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, A-squared Free and SuperAntiSpywate Free are free versions of adware removal tool to consider. These tools get rid of spyware when used individually or in tandem. Continue to run the software until all spyware, viruses and malware are removed.

How To Use the Restore Factory Settings CD
1. Make sure to transfer all of the files you want to keep to a USB memory stick or burn to a CD.
2. Put the Restore Factory Settings CD into the CD drive. This CD was packaged with your computer.
3. Confirm you want to restore the factory settings. The computer will begin restoring all settings. Don't disturb your computer, as this process can take several hours. .
4. Reboot the computer to complete the process.

I recently acquired a virus that I'm unable to remove from my netbook. Can I restore my netbook to factory settings to remove this virus? If so, how can I do this?


Yes ACER has a factory backup on the 160gb versions like urs. Good luck calling their tech support their complete useless idiots. I had to go through 2 days of searching to find the F key boot restore feature. You have to hold down an F key and another key I was thinking the ctrl while in preboot. I cant remember exactly but u can surf google and find it like I did. But yes a format will get rid of a virus.
