You may find the upgrade in add/remove programmes, but you will have to look in the manual to see if there is a backed up file on a seperate partition on your pc, or restore the system to a back up you have done yourself originally

Go into the restore menu by pressing "F8" when your computer starts and select the repair or restore option. You will then be given the opportunity to restore to factory settings. (default).

Reset Acer Aspire X3200 To Factory Setting


Assuming the restore partition is intact, boot the machine and press and hold F10 and ALT at the same time. If the partition is intact, you should be brought to a restore menu and given the option to restore to factory settings. If this doesn't work, you may have corrupted the restore partition and will need disks to install an operating system. If you created Rescue Disks in Vista, simply load the 1st disk and reboot.

Hi trying to restore a compaq pc with the restore disk but it says this is not a compaq pc and won't let me do it? had a virus, friend reloaded windows with his cd because i was traveling and did not have...


I hate to be the bearer of bad news but your friends install has caused the computer to forget its origin. Try a restore using the internal drive.
  • Turn it off and restart it
  • Tap f10 repeatedly while it boots
  • Choose Factory Restore
If that doesn't work, you can call Compaq with the serial number and they might have a phone fix. Chances are they will want you to send it to them for a factory restore. (Think $$$)
  • The alternative is to live with your friends install and forgo the Compaq software.

I lost vista software


If you still have your license key sticker then you can use any Vista disk. A friend's one for example.
Or if you want to use recovery:
1. Turn on Computer
2. Hold F11 for 10-20 (or F10 if nothing comes up, restart first!!)
3. Once it loads if it comes up with system restore, put "no" on that.
4. Next system recovery, put yes and your on your way!

How do i reset my laptop to factory settings after installing vista


If you have removed the restoration partation while installing VISTA, you are done.
If you did not backup your programs before installing VISTA, you are done.
If however you had VISTA on the unit and you have re-installed it on the same, you may have a chance.
The best way to restore you computer back to factory is from the restoration disks or partation.
You can aways contact acer for a restoration disk set.
Hope this info has helped.

I want to restore my Acer Aspire M1100 desktop computer back to factory settings. I have the disks from Acer, one is a System Disk and one is a Recovery Disk. Is there any way to restore/reinstall Vista...


Hello,

If you used the restore disk on your computer it will erase all files, and all your programs. the restore Factory settings means "ALL" settings the time you created the CD for the restore.

If you have an individual Vista Installer CD with the Serial you can use it and use restore option.

Thank you for using Fixya
Hope this helps.
