Answers :

Hi ive got my friends laptop he has deleted empowering technology by mistake can it be fixed thanks
I ran into the same problem almost a year ago, so my memory isn't 100% on the hotkeys. Alt + F10 works on DELL machines, it has nothing to do with Acers. I called Acer and they gave me a different set; I don't remember precisely what they were. Try Ctrl + F or Alt + F, although they may have been Ctrl + F4 or Alt + F4.

\015\012Even if the machine isn't under warranty, you can call them and get them to help you, at least by giving you the hotkeys that you need.
