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.

Acer aspire t180 restore to factory settings on start up


You will need to use the recovery discs that came with the computer and boot from the disc and it will give you the option to restore to factory defaults. If you dont have the discs you will need to contact Acer to get a copy.

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

WILL not resetting to factory settings


You will need to burn a Recovery CD / DVD set from the icon located on the desktop/ In your Acer Home Start utility (The window loading at startup) or from the Start Menu.

Using this disk you will be able to do a System Restore back to original factory setup.

When you get the 'acer' screen at startup Hold down ALT and keep pressing F10. You need to be quick, it took several attempts for me. This takes it back to factory settings.

I have a Acer Aspire 6920 laptop with the Cine Dash Media Console. It is no longer responding to touch. It is showing the volume is at its highest setting and the light indicator is on mute when actually...


Wilsonalbany (and all others with this problem),

There is a trick to resetting the CineDash. Remove all power (turn it off and remove the battery) for more than 10 seconds.

That gives it a sort of manual reboot.

*Should* get you back gliding in no time…

Acer Aspire 3620-factory settings


Acer's ship with the factory recovery built into the system. As long as this has not been deleted you should be able to do it.

Click and Start - > All programs

and look for Acer Empowering Technology

Inside that folder there should be a few different programs (dont' have my acer here so i can't remember the names exactly). One of them will allow you to reset from the harddrive and another one will allow you to make your own recovery disks. I would do this first as that way you have a disk that you can put away in the closet in case your harddrive ever dies and needs to be replaced. If that is the case you NEED the disks as the new harddrive would not be setup to do it for you.
