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.

  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1

Need to reconfig router


Of course, if you just want to reset to the factory settings and start from there, look on the back of the router for a little button to depress. Hold that in for 10 seconds while powered on. When it reboots itself, it will have the original factory configurations and you can enter any settings desired.

Cant remember the password or username to access my router


Hello,

Depending on the type of router, there you be a factory reset button on the back of the eqpt that you can insert something about the size of a paperclip into for about 10 seconds while the power is on.

NOTE: Once this is done, you will lose all configuration and passwords on the router. After that, you can refer to the manual for the default password on your router. Some routers have default passwords and others you can leave blank.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

There is a small momentary reset switch on the back of the router, it is very small but clearly marked "Rest". With the router powered on, press and hold the switch in with a paper clip or similar small implement for at least 10 seconds and that will reset the router to default settings (no password), after which you can connect to the router open a browser and type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar and to access your Linksys routers configuration/settings to be able to change settings and set a new WEP/WAP key.
