Boot means to start the computer (press power button). Reboot means to restart the computer. I suspect you're asking how to do a factory restore, but if you do that, your "Mother's coursework" & your "project and games" will be lost.

Please explain the computer problem in detail & maybe one of us can come up with a solution. Include any error messages that appear on the screen or a description of any beep codes. Did you do anything that may have brought this problem on, such as change any hardware or install any programs?

Try this for starters - unplug the power adapter, remove the battery, then press & hold the power button for at least 20 seconds. After doing that, reinstall the battery, plug in the power, & see if the laptop will boot.

Definitely - BEFORE - you do anything such as factory restore/reset - which will erase "all" your personal (valuable) files in the process... Post back here as per riider's request.

Give us details as to what is actually happening; what you are actually doing - or trying to do...

If you are having problems getting the Acer to actually boot up and get to the desktop... tell us. Similarly if it won't boot/start up properly again tell us.

There are ways to safeguard all your personal files (as in copy "all" your files to external storage; typically DVD but an external hard drive too is nice(r).

And for the future... when all is well again with your Acer... Develop the habit of copying "all" your files to external storage - regularly. That way in event of problems all - or at least most - of your files will be safe...?

Again do NOT do anything as drastic as a factory restore/reset. If there is a need to do that - then there are ways to safeguard/copy your personal files to DVD etc. - first; even if the laptop will not boot up OK.

A factory restore/reset does two thungs.

It restores the system to as it was when new, restoring the OS and (depending on the way that routine is preset by the manufacturer) will also restore any bundled applications etc.

BUT it will also erase all personal files in the process. So - as advised earlier - if there is information you really don't want to lose (and clearly that would seem to be case) then first safeguard it. Probably you need a little guidance for that, and if so, then post back and pholks here will guide you through it.

Have you managed to boot the system at all, even into safe-mode (press F8 after the initial Acer splash screen to access a menu that allows you to select Safe mode).

Again do not go for a factory restore until you have safeguarded your personal files (and "mum's" files too).

"If I am going to do a factory reset on my Laptop, will it uninstall windows 8.1??"
If your system came with Windows 8.0 and you upgraded to Windows 8.1 through Windows Update then after a Factory Restore you would have to run Windows Update to get ALL of the missing updates that you had and will need, this will take a while typically and it may need to be restarted 2 or 3 times before it is done. You WILL need to reinstall any programs that you installed yourself. You will need to reset nearly everything as if the machine was new.

Not to overstate what has been said:
DO NOT do a factory restore unless you have saved a copy of all of your files on a location that is NOT ON THAT MACHINE or they will be lost.
DO NOT do a factory restore until you have exhausted all other reasonable options to fix the situation.
DO NOT do a factory restore until you have made sure that the reason it won't start is not actually a hardware issue instead of a software issue that you may be assuming.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
