Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

All the help sites I can find (including the acer site itself) says upon hitting the power button to hit Alt+F10 (of Alt Gr+F10) to load the screen I need to restore my Acer Aspire One netbook to factory settings. This screen WILL NOT POP UP for me. It just continues to boot up the pc as normal. Why can't a factory restore my netbook!?

How do i reset my acer aspire one to factory default is ther a download for it


You can get restore CDs from Acer if you didn't burn them when you got your computer. Alt F10 is supposed to get you to the restore partition. Power on, hit Alt F10, you may have to hit F10 several times while holding down ALT button. If you get anything but the restore menu, you don't have restore or you didn't hit F10 fast enough.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.
