Acer Factory restore

  nikki2007 15:49 30 Jun 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 5684WLMi which I am thinking of selling. I need to restore it to factory setting. Does anyone know the procedure.
I have the Recovery Disks but they are not being read when i put them in the drive.

To activate the recovery program from the hiddon partion you will have to press F11 key when computer starts up. Follow the instructions thereafter.
If this doesn't work then insert the first cd in the drive. Switch off your compuer and then switch on to boot from cd.Follow the instructions.
Hopfully this will resolve your problem.

Thanks for the reply.

I have tried both methods and they both just take me back to my normal sign-in screen.
Any other ideas?

To access the recovery process for Acer laptops the key combination is Alt + F10 - reboot, and as the splash screen appears hold down Alt and repeatedly tap F10
