Solved How do I restore my Acer Aspire 6530 laptop to factory default

Post by iltsam on Mon 25 Jan - 13:31

I need to restore my laptop back to factory default so I can pass it on to my brother. I don't have the restore CD's and I have tried alt+F10 on start up and that doesn't work. It's vista home premium and also it wont boot into vista (Freezes at "Welcome please wait" screen). It will boot in safe mode.

Thanks in advance. Sam.

Hello,

Can you try F12 instead? If it doesn't work you need your recovery CD.

Hello,

Boot into your BIOS by tapping F2 at bootup (If it doesn't work use Del). Once in the BIOS enable Hard Disk Recovery, After that use Alt+F12 to access the recovery partition.

Solved What is ON the Acer Recovery partition?

Post by markmarq8 on Sat 1 Oct - 8:42

I am trying to use UBCD4Win 3.60 to recover from a virus. I requires an ISO image including the UBCD4Win stuff, and an XP installation disk. I have XP MMC on Acer Aspire 5580, sp3. I have an Win XP Home Ed. install disk, and wonder if I should use that, or if I can use the recover y partiion? I'm guessing not, that Acer has a buncho of proprietary crap thet will interfere?

Hello and welcome. You should probably start a new thread. I don't have admin privileges here or I'd move it.

If we're talking Vista here, I've seen it get stuck at that update configuration sometimes for a couple of hours.

You may need to boot to the Vista install disk and do a repair.

I think the Alt+F10 key combination is the one to get you into the recovery partition.

When you start the machine, you probably see an Acer logo. When you see that logo, there is probably text on the bottom of the screen with options to enter setup, boot menu, or the recovery partition. At that point, you should hold the Alt key down and tap the F10 key.

I didn't realize you are using a netbook and that it doesn't have a optical disk drive. You mentioned that you have an external USB CD disk drive. Do you know that it works?

Now assuming that the USB CD drive works and that you have the install disk, you should be able to use F12 when it starts to get to the Boot menu. From there, you can use the arrow keys on your keyboard to select the USB drive.

See if some of that helps. Please note, I have a hard time reading your posts. Proper grammar and correct spelling helps.
