Having problems with your Acer Aspire T690 (AST690UP820A) PC Desktop ?

Does anyone know if i need a restore disk for my Acer Aspire AST690 UP926A, or is it built in to my desktop. If so, which F key do i hit? I tried the F8, F10 F11, basically all of them, and none give the option of letting me reinstall windows and try and save my files...


Answers :

Usually F1, F10 or F12 are the right ones to hit when your computer starts to get the RESTORE DISC function. You will have to be able to hit the key several time when the computer starts so that it accepts the key press. IF you have a partition that has the restore disc on it, I would restore your computer to its original configuration and then I would mirror your discs onto dvd's or cd's for safe keeping. If your harddrive goes out, you will have nothing to restore your computer with then. When you find the correct F key it may also have the option to make your own restore discs. I would do this as soon as possible.
