I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Windows 8 tablet Acer Iconia W700(I5 Core) and i am trying to factory reset to the default settings again because of the stupid problems i am having on the tablet.
Here is the problem i am trying to get into the BIOS which is the 1 step on the Acer website but for some bizarre reason when it is completely off i press the Windows button and the power button to get in to the BIOS as it says on the Acer Website but it keeps going to the start menu/desktop now instead of going to the BIOS. :/
I have factory reset/hard reset on my Acer Iconia W700 a couple times and i never had this problem before, i gone in to the BIOS no problem!!!
Can someone help me please?? Thanks!!!

Hi, No, factory reset will bring your machine back to facory status (the time opening the box) byt hard reset won't. Regards.

My laptop is an Acer V3-571 with Windows 8.It wouldn't download Windows Updates so I decided to do a Factory reset via Acer Recovery Management.It seems to be taking ages.After 3.5 hours,it is still at 45%.Is this normal to take as long.My Samsung laptop did it in about 25 minutes.

That sounds like an extraordinary length of time. Should be a lot shorter. Is your laptop plugged in? Trying to do that on battery could extend its time dramatically.

Hello I have a problem :O after goes slower Acer factory reset!!! with my computer It started when I had my factory reset eRecoverty Management because the computer constantly crashed when it had been in hibernation But even after factory reset I noticed that the computer began to go slower the program stopped responding and more often and to my great astonishment as it crashed again after being in sleep mode Acer goes slower after factory reset!!! :O I received the hint that I could download an error fix software FileCure but then I realized it was an unregistered version of the software so I uninstalled it Later when I started the computer it happened something strange I came directly to Inlogg after windows starting though I have no password on my computer It was weird I also found that startup was slower than usual When I came in to the computer it stood that there was something wrong with the installation of FileCure so I decided to do a system restore which would remove FileCure This process took more than minutes Before the process was complete my dad shuted down the computer - - quot Later when I started the computer I Acer goes slower after factory reset!!! :O could not get into windows so I had to factory restore my computer with the recovery CDs but now the computer goes slower What should I do What could be the problem Is there any way to get the computer to go faster but consume more electricity

A:Acer goes slower after factory reset!!! :O

There shouldn't be any reason for a machine with those specifications to be running slow by any means. If it's running slow there are a few things that could be causing it.

First, if you restored using the factory recovery disks, it most likely installed all of the junk that OEM's have a horrible habit of bloating your machine with. Remove any software that is unnecessary. Second, check to make sure your hardware is functioning properly. If there is an issue with a piece of your hardware, it could absolutely cause crashing.

Do you have all of the correct and up to date drivers for your hardware? Including BIOS updates? Check the Acer website for the latest drivers. I'm sure others will chime in with other ideas, but the above is a good place to start

I want to reset my PC to factory settings but I am unable to do that at the moment as the erecovery management program is not on my computer. My PC used the windows 10 full reset option for reasons unknown and now all files and programs are gone. When I open the troubleshoot menu using alt+f10 during boot and press full reset then it says some important files are missing and I cant reset. This means that my pc has no option to restore to factory settings on its own as far as I know.  If you know some way to fix this please let me know! Thanks

Please help me to reset my laptop without removing windows

A:how factory reset acer aspire 4738

Hello persia and welcome to Seven Forums.

Most computers come with a factory installed recovery option. The recovery option is usually located in the Start menu > All Programs and provides detailed step-by-step instructions to return your machine to the exact same condition it was in when you first bought it. That means you would have to install all Windows Updates, any programs you installed, etc.

If you provide a little more info about why you want (or need) to reset your laptop other Forum members might jump in with additional suggestions. For example, are you not able to start your computer? Do you think your computer has malware? Are you not able to get an internet connection? Are you receiving any errors? Did you recently install some software or program that has messed up your computer?

Here are a few things for you to consider:
1. Did you create recovery CDs when you bought the Acer? If not you may be able to get them directly from the manufacturer. (This is the US Acer Store so you may have to go to the store that services your country if you're not in the US.)
eRecovery Media | Acer
2. Do you think a System Restore would help your situation? This tutorial explains more:
System Restore
3. You might find that a Repair Install will help you. If successful it will preserve your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers, etc but you would still have to reinstall all Windows Updates (probably 250+ updates which could take several hours.)
Repair Install

Again, please provide more info about your situation and why you want to reset to factory settings.

As you have been using your Notebook on your lap without a Cooler, which has caused overheating, you now have damaged parts which will need replacing.

My laptop is running really slow and I am wanting to reset it all. It is quite old and I just want to reset it and see if that helps.

A:acer laptop factory reset windows vista

Please post the model number of your computer. From your spec I assume it is still an Acer but we need the number in order to be sure we give you the correct reset procedure. I trust you realise you will lose everything of your own and be back to the as bought condition.Very often slowness is due to malware. I would recommend you first run these three free programs in the order given, rather than going straight for reset:AdwCleaner:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Cleaning" button.Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.MalwareBytes:http://filehippo.com/download_malwa...(green Download button top right - not anything else on the page)Install and Run the program but before doing its Scan go to "Settings > Detection and Protection" and put a checkmark in "Scan for rootkits". Quarantine anything it finds. If any of them find anything, please copy/paste the logs on here because even if the symptoms are cured you are likely to still have things lurking around that require further cleaning.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

I have a Aspire AST671 computer and would like to use the backup files to bring the computer back to it's factory setting by using the ALT-F10 keys.
But the backup files were deleted from the harddrive, I used a Partition recovery program and recovered the directory PQSERVICE and all the files to reset the computer to factory settings, The PQSERVICE and all files are on my C:/drive, but I can not use ALT-F10 keys to reset the computer. How can I start the recovery without using ALT-F10.
Any help would be appreciated,

A:Reinstall OS on Acer Aspire 5738z Win 7 or reset to factory settings?

If I understood correctly you have an OEM version of Windows 7, and I doubt those iso files will match your product key. However the best way in my opinion is to use the built in recovery manager of Acer, where you create the necessary installation dvds and then perform a clean install. It should take 3-5 dvds to burn them, and you will lose all your data that already exists on the hard drive. Make a backup copy of all your files before proceeding with installation, in this way you will get a fresh drive.
Its a pretty straight forward process and it will install the correct version of your Windows, along with other softwares that came when you purchased it. You have to update the Windows as they are not included in those burned dvds.

At last i took out the CMOS battery, I restarted the pc after i put the battery back in and all I got was a black screen.I tried to flash the BIOS, because I read that the BIOS might be corrupted.

A:Hard Reset

A reset will delete all of the files on the notebook. It is not a hard reset. that is something different. Have you tried booting to the usb recovery media that you should have created by now?If you do that, you can use Windows system restore to resolve the issue.  Do you see it below the Precautions heading in the image? Windows System refresh will also fix the issue without deleting any personal files.

Hi,I seem to have corrupt bios.  I was setting up the system with Xubuntu 16.04 so I went into the bios settings to change it from "Legacy" to "UEFI with CMS" after I saved it and rebooted it went to a blank screen with the backlight on.  Since then I've gone through the hard reset proceedures posted here using the external method with both of the bios versions posted. So far nothing has worked but it is accessing the usb drive and the screen backlight does come on and off but only in the early stages of the process.  After that, nothing! I've tried holding the "win" key and "b" for several minutes so I'm fairly sure I'm not letting go too early.  No flashing lights or beeps! So is this the right proceedure?  Any suggestions?

A:PC will only boot after hard reset.

Wow, sounds like you've essentially swapped in a brand new computer.

You didn't put jumpers on the hard drive, did you? I've heard of that messing up SATA drives. Poke around the BIOS and mess with the drive settings, including raid configs that might not exist. it definately sounds like a BIOS problem related to your hard drive.

That does seem like a royal pain though.

Reassemble.I can find other reset references to different types of convertible devices but not the N9T28AVIf this is posted in the wrong section, please move to the correct locationIn anticipationThank you

Hi, I've been working on a computer that has had a lot of recent issues with its hard drive, and I'm getting tired of trying to fix it with the computer utilities. Could I have a link to instructions on how to completely reset my hard drive, erasing everything on it? The computer is a Dimension 8250 and doesn't have a warrantee any longer, nor does it have anything valuable on it, although I could easily transfer the few remaining files that I would like to keep onto another computer. I also have the XP boot disc, so I should be ready to do this. Thks.

A:Reset Hard Drive

Hi .

If "reset" means delete everything...

You can just use the XP CD...to delete everything on any drive, before creating a new partition/formatting/installing XP.

My computer used to have the "blue screen." Then my computer completely crashed (when I hit the power button, the light on the desktop blinks a little and shuts off)...It does not turn on the screen either...

I think it might be the hard drive. Is there a way to reset the hard drive without having to turn on? (Is there a button you can push to reset it somewhere? etc.)

Even if it is not the hard drive I would still like to completely reset it...

Thanks for any advice
 

A:Reset Hard Drive Manually

No. There isn't a reset for the HDD.

If the PC won't even power up properly, there is likely a hardware failure or at a minimum, something inside the PC is not properly connected/installed.

A:Computer won't boot sometimes without hard reset

Hello kat91119,Some people have been able to awaken the monitor when the computer is in "sleep" mode by pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL (not holding them) and then clicking cancel. You could try going through this troubleshooting guide: How to Troubleshoot a Vista or Windows 7 Sleep Mode Problem.You will note that they recommend updating the display drivers and the system bios, first. I wouldn't worry about the bios at this point but would check the computer manufacturer's web site to see if they have an "updated" display driver. How to determine the dispaly adapter name and version then go to manufacturer's website:First, click "Start" (the globe) and right mouse click on "Computer" and click "Properties."Select "Device Manager" then click on the (+) next to "Display Adapters." Write down the make and model number.Next, right mouse click on the Display Adapter and click "Properties," "Driver" tab, and write down driver date and driver version.Now you can go the computer manufacturer's web site (i.e. Dell, HP, Acer, etc.), look for "Download Drivers and Software" (may have to click on Support, first). Enter either "Tag number" or exact "make and model number." Select the computer operating system (Vista 32 or Vista 64).Look for your exact display adapter, note date and driver version. If newer, download and install.Finally, proceed with the troubleshooting guide.I hope it helps.

I dont think I've ever had to do a hard reset on this router, but nothing blinks or flashes to indicate a reset took. This is a wired network, nothing is wi-fi.

Is there anything I can do??? Or is the router a brick now?

Edit: Im googling like mad, but it doesnt help when i have such an obscure router model. Would i be able to access anything if i connected my computer to the WAN port?

A:Crashing & Hard Reset Needed

Thank you for supplying your specs, but you forgot the most important one, the Power Supply Unit.
Freezing is usually caused by overheating or an underpowered or failing PSU. Remove the side clean out all dust, blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Look at the label and post the Make, Model # and Wattage of the PSU. If it is under 500Watts it is underpowered for your setup Get a PSU of 550Watts or better. .
Boot into Setup (Bios) and set it to Failsafe Defaults (F5). This should set the proper speed for your RAM.

After working fine (well mostly) for the last couple of years, my network has been crashing for the last week or so. While connected to the internet, minding their own business, suddenly all 3 of my computers will lose internet access. I've tried everything, including following the instructions received on the D-Link help line (model DI-624), and I can get the system back up for a while, but inevitably it will crash again almost immediately. The only thing that has worked so far is doing a a hard reset (is that what it's called?) where you stick a paper clip into the reset hole and hold for 20 or so seconds.

Question 1: Does this mean my router must be replaced?

Question 2: Could the problem possibly be an adapter card in one of the clients? Would that cause the whole shebang to crash?

Thanks in advance for any assistance. I am so frustrated!
 

A:D-Link Router Needs Hard Reset

'Could the problem possibly be an adapter card in one of the clients?'

Possibly.

The obvious test is to run only 1, and if it happens, keep alternating one out and another in. If all 3 get the router failure 1 at a time, then the router is toast. If single comp causes the fail, then the comp NIC is bad.

Sometimes after a power failure, the computer wont reboot from the hard disk. Instead we get a statement which says, and I loosely quote: Boot hardware not found. Insert disc and press F1 or press F2 for setup.

Last night the disc wouldnt let it boot up either. I went to F2 and tried to change the boot from the CDROM to the hard disk, the problem was HARD DISK was not in the window as a selection. Finally after doing some things that now I cant remember, I went back to the same window and low and behold Hard disk is now a part of the selection. The computer then booted from the hard disk, and is now operating fine.

Can someone explain to me what I did to get it working so that when this happens again I have the method of repair at hand. Thanks so much.
