I have 2 Acer laptops and neither have a restore option, usually you are prompted by Acer to make a backup disc as soon as you first boot it up and restore from that

I can not fix recovery factory my pc


If you laptop was not supplied with a Windows CD then most likely the hard disk on your laptop has a recovery partition on the hard drive and you can restore your laptop back to the condition when you first purchased the laptop using this recovery partition.
Acer can also supply a recovery CD for your model Acer if you request one. This is needed when the hard disk has failed.
Read your laptop documentation for the instruction on the restore procedure. You also get this information from Acer's WEB site.

    I want to take my acer aspire back to the factory setting but dont have a cd how do i do it


    Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc,  pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.

    What buttons do u press to format an acer desktop


    Well i mi8ght be wrong on thid one, but i am going to go out on a limb and say None. If you want to restore to factory original you will have to go into the recovery system and see restore point from way back when you first got the computer, otherwise you need the recovery disks from acer if that model came with them, then you will have to format the drive and reinstall all the programs including the operating system. Hope this helps.

    Hi there.
    With most Fujitsu laptops i have worked with it has either been F11 on start-up or as the machine starts press F8, it will take you to a sub menu, in that menu should be the option to factory restore the system.

    Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

    I HAVE A ACER LAPTOP 5315 HOW CAN I SET IT BACK TO THE SETTING AS WHEN I BOUGHT IT? PLEASE HELP


    Try pressing F11 as you boot up and before the Windows starts (assuming you use Windows). On initial start you'll get some ACER banner, immediatly press F11 several times. This must happen before Windows begins. From there you can RESTORE if your system has this original factory partition. If not then the only way is to have your original SYSTEM RESTORE discs or ask ACER how to get them.
