There is definitely a way that you should be able to do this, but you have to either read over your computer's manual/documentation, or contact your computer's manufacturer, and ask them to provide you with the certain key and process to do in order to set your computer back to factory settings. This will set your computer all the way back to the way it was when you first bought it. If you don't have a way to set it back to factory settings, then you more than likely will have to reformat your computer's hard drive and reinstall your operating system and your computer's drivers. make sure you have your computer's system restore disks. If you do not have these, you can do several things; You can contact your computer's manufacturer and request them to send you your restore disks. make sure they send you the OS disk And the drivers disks, and all else that you need to restore. If you cannot get the disks, then you will have to buy the operating system that you wish to reinstall. Once you buy the OS and have reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled the OS, you can probably go to your computer manufacturer's website and find all of your system drivers listed, and then just begin to install your needed drivers. Don't forget to do all of your Windows Updates. Thanks

How to restart a acer laptop

What specific Acer laptop do you have?
Does it have the Acer Empowering Technology application software installed on it?
Do you have a recovery CD to use to re-install the supplied operating system?
Does the laptop have a CD or DVD drive built-in, or do you have access to an external CD or DVD drive you can use?
Sorry for so many questions but all of the above are important if you are to restore your Acer laptop back to factory settings.

I bought my acer laptop on 12/20/09 so its not even a year old and its starting to have black circles all over the screen i dont know what it is or why its happening to my computer? thanks jen

Seening that the laptop is under a year old the best thing to do is bring it back to the shop and get them to sent it back to acer, before you let them send it away backup everything you need from the laptop. and one more think acer are very slow at sending back repairs, i know this because i send computers back to them all the time for my work

Factory settings

Unlike other laptops, Acer laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer laptop to factory setting.

Step 1: Before starting your Acer laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer laptop to original factory settings.

Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your laptop data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.

My acer aspire 3680 drivers we mistakenly deleted when my laptop was reformatted

You can retrieve these from the Acer website and burn them to disk on a different computer.
Hope that reformat is what you really wanted, it'll be a while before you get everything back in place.
