1. Click "Start," "Turn Off Computer" and then "Restart", if it is on. If your computer is off, turn it on by pressing the power button above the keyboard.
2. Press the "F2" function key on your computer's keyboard to enter the BIOS utility.
3. Use the laptop's right arrow key to scroll to "Main." Confirm that the "D2D Recovery" is "Enabled." If the D2D option is "Disabled," scroll down to the option using the down arrow key. Press "Enter" to change the option to "Enabled."
4. Use the laptop's right arrow key to scroll to "Exit." The "Exit Saving Changes" option will be highlighted. Press "Enter" to save the settings and exit the BIOS utility. Your Acer Aspire will restart.
Reformatting the Acer Aspire
1. Press the "ALT" and "F10" keys together while your computer is restarting and the Acer logo is showing to enter the Acer Aspire's reformatting utility.
2. Follow the on-screen prompts. Your laptop's hard drive will reformat and the original applications will be reinstalled. Your computer will restart after the reformatting process is complete.
3. Enter your name and other personal information when prompted during the Windows operating system setup process.
Thanks! This one really works!!!!

Drivers for Acer products may be found on the Acer support site.
Search for the product and download the drivers.

Alternatively, the factory installed drivers and applications can be re-installed by using Acer eRecovery.
Follow these steps:
Click Start and then All Programs
Click Acer and then Acer eRecovery Management
You may be prompted to enter or create a password. This password will be required to use eRecovery in the future.
In the next window, select Restore or Recovery. This will vary from system to system.
Choose Reinstall Drivers or Applications
Choose Contents
Choose the driver or application you wish to install
On the right, click the install link and follow the prompts.
The system may restart when installation is complete. If it does not restart, manually shutdown and restart the computer.

hope that helps
thanks.... hope will help me... will try it torrow...
I dont see start. it's a blank screen with a message saying no bootable device - insert boot disk and press any key. I tried the F2 button and the F12 button and I really dont know what I am doing. Please help I will like to restore my acer netbook back to factory settings if possible. I dont mind if I lose everything. Please advise. Thank you.
If it says "insert boot disk and press any key" im afraid your hard disk may have been broken.. boot disk usually refers to the disk were you put the operating system or your primary storage where the system usually stores all your afraid it wont be as easy for you to reformat..better take it to some service center to have it repaired
boot disk is a system cd or disc, you dont know what you're talking about. its a disk that the computer boots off of to copy files
@ladykiller. it means that your hard drive got knocked loose. open the hard drive panel and make sure the hard drive is seated correctly. this happened to my nephew's friend.
(left) Alt + F10 does not work, but (right) Alt Gr + F10 does work.

Believe or not, it's a big diference.
Acually (left) alt F10 and (right) alt Gr F10 both dont
If you want to recover your Original OS, just simply install another OS and type your product key as listed in at the back of your laptop...and after that your OS it back...

Gleaned from this link

try this

Create a System Rescue USB drive (Note: An alternative to the spyware-laden Daemon-tools for mounting the ISO file as a virtual CD-ROM is Virtual CloneDrive). If you have trouble with the System Rescue CD, you can try some other distros.

Reboot the netbook and go into the Acer BIOS settings. Change the boot settings to check USB first. Plug in your System Rescue stick, and restart the netbook.

Run “wizard”, and launch gtparted (icon towards the lower-left of the screen).
Delete partition 2, create a new one, then reformat it as NTFS

Mark partition 1 as bootable (right-click, edit flags). Remove USB drive.
Reboot into the Acer System Restore software. Choose to restore the system.

Plug the System Rescue USB drive back into the Acer netbook.

Reboot into the System Rescue CD/USB, go back into gparted, and flag the restored partition 2 as bootable.

Remove USB flash drive and reboot.
