Factory Reset!

Greetings Everyone! Woman Happy I am switches1979 (or you may call me S Woman Wink)


I am attempting to restore my Acer Aspire 5100 to the factory settings/reset the darn thing!  I bought my laptop over two years ago for online-classes, and at that time it was ALREADY second hand! Woman Frustrated As you might imagine, my poor laptop has a lot of stuff on it that is s-l-o-w-i-n-g it down.  


I fully and with aver, state I am a novice when it comes to things outside my scope of practice -- I.E. resetting my laptop!


If anyone is willing to help, I would forever be obliged to you! Heart  


Thank you for reading my post and have a beautiful day!
