Reading the article it looks like a standard recovery method for all Acer machines, desktop or laptop.

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

Hi there , how do i completly reset my Acer Aspire E380 desktop computer to factory settings again . i have backed up everything i need and i just want to start again completely and wipe it all. any...


Hi.

With that desktop computer being new it should have a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive that allows you to perform a factory restore which will take it to how it was when you took it out the box.

To access the recovery partition on your Acer computer for recovery, follow the steps listed below.

1. Power on the computer
2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the Alt key and press the F10 key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery.
3. Once eRecovery has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings
4. Click OK to continue
5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore a fully functional factory image which should take approximately 10 minutes.
6. Once eRecovery has run, press OK to reboot the computer.



Hope this helps!!!




Regards.

How can do i clear my hard drive and reinstall windows


You can launch Acer eRecovery Management in a number of ways:
By pressing the hotkey <Alt> + <F10> during the boot-up process, or at any
time when you are running Microsoft® Windows®.
This will open the Acer eRecovery Management main page.
Password
Acer eRecovery Management requires a password to activate. The default
password is six zeros (0s).
Note: If an incorrect password is entered three times, Acer
eRecovery Management closes and returns to Windows®
automatically.
System recovery
Step 1: Click on “Recovery actions”.
Step 2: You are presented with a list of available options
CHOOSE-->Recover system from CD/DVD backup
If you choose to restore from an image on an optical disk, the BIOS will be
changed to boot from the optical drive. If no backup disk is found, you are
prompted to insert the disk.
Reinstall
IF THOSE DISKS DONT WORK , YOU CAN ALWAYS RESTORE TO FACTORY SPEC FROM THE HIDDEN PARTITION ON YOUR HARDDRIVE.
Hope this helps you out .. Regards

Won't Power On!


My brother had the same problem with his machine. On doing some research online I came across this site:

http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&areaid=2&formid=3390#results

It gave the following 2 solutions to the problem. The first one workedfor a while but then we had to try the second and this seems to havesolved the problem.

Solution 1
ssue
No Power or Will not boot
Solution
If the unit will not turn on and has no power:
  1. Verify that the power cord is plugged both into the unit and an electrical socket.
  2. If it is plugged into a power strip or surge protector verify that the power strip or surge protector is turned on.
  3. Try another power outlet.
  4. Unplugthe power cable from the unit, hold the power button on the unit downfor 30 seconds. Release the power button and plug the power cord backinto the unit. Try to turn it back on.
If the unit has power but does not boot into Windows:
  1. Turn the unit off and unplug the power cord from the unit.
  2. Hold the power button on the unit down for 30 seconds.
  3. Release the power button and plug the power cord back into the unit.
  4. Turn the unit on.

  6. The unit will restart and start the restore.
    It should state "Please wait a moment..." with the Acer logo in the upper left hand corner.
  7. At the eRecovery Management menu it will ask you how to restore.
    Click on the restore option you would like to use.
How to recovery your system from bootup
  1. Locate the Alt key, to the left of the space bar, and F10, on the top row of keys.
  2. Power the system on.
