This is a tried and tested way to recover it takes quite long but here goes: (remember to backup all your documents first)

First you will need your Windows Vista Home Premium licence key the easiest way is to boot to safe mode using F8 then use a U3 stick USB drive with this U3 WinkeyFinder installed to find and save your Genuine Licence and also backup your Windows Activation file you will need this for later.

1.Install your Windows Vista Home SP1 operating system using the normal method with your install CD use you Genuine Key found using WinKey. Then restore you activation file using Winkey on the U3 drive.

2. Dowload the Windows Vista SP2 Patch CD from the Windows Website.

3. Reload all you drivers using this excellent Aspire 6920 recovery CD from WinGuides. It will cost you £10.

All done. if you dont have a Windows Vista SP1 Install CD then you will also have to download one which you can do legally as you already have a Genuine Licence if not check using this MGA Tool

Hope this helps please rate !

    The
    other way which you should try first before my last resort attempt.

    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 you will see this on the screen

    “Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”

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

    This doesn't always work and sometimes you need to remove the laptop battery.

Hi i reset my acer aspire 6920 to factory settings as the system was running very slow and i could not find the problem...but now i have a worse one.... once it does the factory restore by pressing alt f10...


Hi,

Sorry to hear about your problem.

The only other way to resolve this issue is going to with the use of recovery media.

Currently you're using the built in partition, but i'm hoping you also made some disks like it would've asked you to.

If so, insert disk 1 and restart to load from the recovery disc.

If not - you can contact Acer to be supplied with these, they'll still be a lot cheaper than buying Windows, but will cost approx $50.

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.

How to boot my laptop to its factory setting. its an acer 6920 n it has vista


Take a closer look at the boot up time to find something like
F9 to restore
and press that key during boot up. CAUTION you will loose all your data, so take back-up of your files and write down your passwords and other settings.

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.
