If your computer is experiencing severe data corruption and system errors, running the system recovery program is an option. Your Acer M1640 will revert to its original, factory-installed state. The recovery process deletes all files, software and drivers not installed by Acer.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your Aspire M1640.

  2. 2

    Hold down the "Alt" button and repeatedly press "F10" while the system restarts.

  3. 3

    Select "Restore System to Factory Default" from the Acer eRecovery menu.

  4. 4

    Enter the eRecovery password at the prompt. The factory default password is six zeroes if a new password was not previously created.

  5. 5

    Click "Yes" at the eRecovery warning prompt.

  6. 6

    Click "Next" to begin the recovery process. The system will restart once the system is restored.

Tips and warnings

  • You will need to configure the Windows operating system after the recovery process is complete.
