    Good day

     

    You need to restart the machine and it will start in normal mode

    Follow the below steps to reload the machine to factory settings and all data will be lost.

     

    1. Plug in the AC adapter and battery.
    2. Turn the system on
    3. Immediately, press ALT on the keyboard and start tapping F10.
      Continue holding ALT and tapping F10 as the unit boots up.
    4. A screen stating "Starting Acer Erecovery" should appear.
      (Release ALT and stop tapping F10 at this point)
    5. There will be 4 options:
      1. Restore system to factory default
      2. Restore system from user backup
      3. Restore system from cd/dvd
      4. Exit

    Regards,

    Freeza
