How To Reset A Acer Laptop


If you’re having trouble with your Acer laptop, you’ll need to reset it. Resetting a computer tells the operating system to start fresh, wiping out any files that have been saved on the hard drive. This can help when your laptop or desktop’s operating system is buggy or frozen. It also helps if you want to get rid of malware that may be causing problems with your computer.

Shut down your computer

Shutting down your computer is important because it will prevent the virus from spreading further. To do this, press the power button on your laptop until you see an image of a red cross with an “X” through it (the X represents an escape character). Once you see this screen, wait for approximately 30 seconds before repeating these steps. If you don’t want to wait or if you don’t know how long it takes for Windows 10 to shut down after pressing that button, simply press the power button again until all lights are off, and then restarting might be necessary depending on whether or not there’s still any activity happening within the operating system itself

Unplug your computer from the wall and remove the battery.

Unplug the power cable from your laptop and remove the battery.

For around 30 seconds, keep the power button down. This will restart your computer with a fresh slate, so you can start over with your new profile settings and applications.

Hold down the power button for 30 seconds.

Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This will restart your computer and clear out any temporary files that may be stored on it.

Hold down the power button until you see Windows loading, then release it when it has loaded completely. You may need to press this button multiple times if your laptop doesn’t boot up after about 15 seconds or so of holding down its power button (this can depend on the age of your laptop).

Plug the battery back in and power on your laptop.

Plug the battery back in and power on your laptop. You should see the Acer logo on the screen of your computer, but if it doesn’t show up, unplug your laptop and try again.

Get familiar with Windows 10’s new features.

You may have noticed that Windows 10 has a new Start menu. If you’re an old-school user, this will feel like a big change to you. But if you’re a Windows 8 or 10 user who is comfortable with the new features of those OSes (and who isn’t afraid of getting used to them), then there’s no need for concern here: You’ll be able to use your laptop just as well in its updated form as before.

In addition to the Start menu, there are other changes that you should get familiar with before using your Acer laptop again after it has been reset—for example:

  • Cortana has been replaced by Microsoft Edge as the default browser on most computers running Windows 10; however, older versions of Edge still exist and can be downloaded from Microsoft’s website if necessary.* The taskbar now includes notifications from apps when they’ve opened up again after being closed down during hibernation mode.* Action Center offers quick access buttons for commonly used tasks such as searching Bing online or opening the Settings app within any open window.* A few more things about settings have changed too – like how much RAM each app uses when running simultaneously with others (which means less lag time between pages loading).

Resetting your Acer laptop is easy!

  • First, make sure that you have a functional battery. If it’s not working, this can cause problems with the keyboard and mouse as well. You may want to consider replacing it if it’s not working properly.
  • Next, power down your computer by holding down all of its buttons at once for about 20 seconds or so until they turn off completely (this will also reset any wireless devices attached). You should see white lights flash on during this process; if not, check if there are any screws around which could be loosened slightly until you see them light up again for everything else to work properly after restarting up again.*
