How to reset acer aspire back to manufacture settings with out the disc


Press ALT F10 while on the BIOS boot-up screen. I believe this is the way to start up Acer's recovery program, provided you have not cleared or formatted the recovery partition. Good luck, and I hope this helps you :)

I have a Acer aspire desktop computer m1100 and when I bought it did not come with a recovery disk and I did not make the cd because I was unaware of how to do it. Now the computer will not boot with out a...


by default the hard drive should have a recovery partition. go to the support section of the manufactures website and you should find detailed instructions of how to boot to the partition. if that option has been corrupted, you can purchase a recovery disc directly from acer. i've ordered nearly a hundred for customers in the past and have never paid more than 20.00 for a disc or disc set.

below you will find a link that will allow you to enter your product serial number and direct you to the purchase of a factory recovery cd/dvd.

Hi My acer t135 will not boot up properly when


First of all you must recover your files: download and burn a Linux Live-CD, boot from it and move your files to an USB stick.
All older Acer's have a hidden recovery partition. Check in the BIOS (F2 to boot on my Acer): that Acer Disk to Disk Recovery is activated in the Main panel, which D2D Recovery is well on Enabled. To access it press ALT + F10 once the Acer logo is displayed.
If you don't have one borrow from a friend a retail XP disk and do a Repair or Inplace Upgrade install.

I need to wipe my acer aspire pc with vista. Do I need a recovery disc I do not remember it coming with one?


You can do it without disk to but for it should be hiddden partition is installled when your vista is load first time.For that
There is one option in bios D2d enable it .then save settings.
For enter bios when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key then go to main menu find D2d
then enable then save and exit.
Then when it restart press ALT +F2
then you see recovery mode follow the procedure and wiped acer.
But if there is not any recoverry then you need recovery disk.

Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.

I need to know how to avtivate the system restore for the computer for a ACER ASPIRE 4520 sincei dont have the disc??


This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software
content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps
below to rebuild your C: drive. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data
will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option.
Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.
1 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.
2 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.
3 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.
Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during POST.
To start the recovery process:
1 Restart the system.
2 While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to
enter the recovery process.
3 Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.

I have an acer aspire L350 i want to restore it from the recovery partition but i dont know what to press to get to it please help


When you first turned on your laptop from new, you should have been prompted to create back up disks of your system.

If you did not do this, then you can try the following.

Most models of Acer Aspire have recovery system capabilities.
When booting up press F2 to enter the bios. Make sure that D2D recovery system is enabled then exit and save the changes. Press Alt+F10 to enter recovery. If this does not work for you then contact Acer for replacement recovery disks.

I hope this helps
