We would like to thank you for making this Acer desktop computer your choice for meeting your computing needs.

Your guides To help you use your Acer desktop computer, we have designed a set

of guides:

First off, the Setup Guide helps you get started with setting up your computer.

The Quick Guide introduces you to the basic features and functions of your new computer. For more on how your computer can help you to be more productive, please refer to the User’s Manual. This guide contains detailed information on such subjects as system utilities, data recovery, expansion options and troubleshooting. In addition it contains general regulations and safety notices for your desktop computer. It is available from the desktop; double-click the Help icon and click User’s Manual in the menu that opens.

Basic care and tips for using your computer Turning your computer on and off

To turn the power off, do any of the following:

• Use the Windows shutdown command: Press the Windows key + C, click Settings Power then click Shut Down.

If you need to power down the computer for a short while, but don’t want to completely shut it down, you can put it into Hibernate by pressing the power button.

cord. Also, the total current rating of all equipment plugged into a single wall outlet should not exceed the fuse rating.

Cleaning and servicing

When cleaning the computer, follow these steps:

1. Turn off the computer.

If either of the following occurs:

8 - Recovery

–  –  –

Important We recommend that you create a Recovery Backup and Drivers and Applications Backup and as soon as possible.

In certain situations a full recovery will require a USB recovery backup.

Creating a recovery backup To reinstall from a USB storage drive, you must first create a recovery backup. The recovery backup includes the entire original contents of your computer’s hard drive, including Windows and all factory-loaded software and drivers. Using this backup will restore your computer to the same state as when you purchased it, while giving you an option to retain all settings and personal data.

–  –  –

1. From Start, type 'Recovery' and then click Acer Recovery Management in the list of apps.

2. Click Create Factory Default Backup. The Recovery Drive window opens.

Make sure Copy contents from the recovery partition to the recovery drive is selected. This provides the most complete and safest recovery backup.

3. Plug in the USB drive then click Next.

10 - Recovery

may use either a USB storage drive or, if your computer features a DVD recorder, one or more blank recordable DVDs.

1. From Start, type 'Recovery' and then click Acer Recovery Management in the list of apps.

2. Click Create Drivers and Applications Backup.

Plug in the USB drive or insert a blank DVD into the optical drive, then click Next.

• If you are using a USB drive, make sure your USB drive has enough capacity before continuing.





• If using DVDs, it will also show the number of blank, recordable discs you will need to complete the recovery discs. Make sure that you have the required number of identical, blank discs.

3. Click Start to copy files.You will be shown the backup progress on the screen.

4. Follow the process until it completes:

• If you are using optical discs, the drive ejects each disc as it completes burning it. Remove the disc from the drive and mark it 12 - Recovery

–  –  –

Reinstalling drivers and applications As a troubleshooting step, you may need to reinstall the applications and device drivers that came pre-installed on your computer from the factory. You can reinstall using either your hard drive or the backup you have created.

• Other applications - If you need to reinstall software that did not come pre-installed on your computer, you need to follow that software’s installation instructions.

• New device drivers - If you need to reinstall device drivers that did not come pre-installed on your computer, follow the instructions provided with the device.

If you are reinstalling using Windows and the recovery

information stored on your computer:

1. From Start, type 'Recovery' and then click Acer Recovery Management in the list of apps.

2. Click Reinstall Drivers or Applications.

14 - Recovery

2. You should see the Contents section of the Acer Resource Center.

Images for reference only.

3. Click the install icon for the item you want to install, then follow the onscreen prompts to complete the installation. Repeat this step for each item you want to reinstall.

Returning to an earlier system snapshot Microsoft System Restore periodically takes a 'snapshot' of your system settings and saves them as restore points. In most cases of hard-to-resolve software problems, you can return to one of these restore points to get your system running again.

Windows automatically creates an additional restore point each day, and also each time you install software or device drivers.

Note For more information about using Microsoft System Restore, from Start, type ’Help’ and then click Help and Support in the list of apps. Type ’Windows system restore’ in the Search Help box, then press Enter.

Returning to a restore point

2. Click System and Security Action Center, then click Recovery at the bottom of the window.

3. Click Open System Restore, then Next.

16 - Recovery

4. Click the latest restore point (at a time when your system worked correctly), click Next, then Finish.

5. A confirmation window appears; click Yes. Your system is restored using the restore point you specified. This process may take several minutes, and may restart your computer.

Returning your system to its factory condition If your computer experiences problems that are not recoverable by other methods, you may need to reinstall everything to return your system to its factory condition. You can recover from either your hard drive or the recovery backup you have created.

• If you can still run Windows and have not deleted the recovery partition, see Recovering from Windows on page 16.

• If you cannot run Windows, your original hard drive has been completely re-formatted or you have installed a replacement hard drive, see Recovering from a recovery backup on page 19.

Note Information in this section may not apply to your computer.

This chapter includes basic information on types of connections, and getting connected to the Internet. For detailed information, please refer to Network connections on page 53.

Connecting with a cable Built-in network feature The built-in network feature makes it easy for you to connect your computer to the Internet using a cable.

But first, an Internet Service Provider (ISP) -- usually a phone or cable company -- will have to go to your home or office to set up Internet service. The ISP will install a small box, called a router, that will allow you to connect to the Internet.

Once your router is set up, all you have to do is plug one end of a network cable into the network port on your computer, and the other end into a port on your router. (Refer to the image below.) Then, you'll be ready to get online.
