I have a acer aspire 9410 with I believe a pirated win 7 program back to factory settings. I have tried control alt f10 and it just loads right to the windows home page for windows 7. I desperately need some help, PLEASE HELP..............

It "may" be that the recovery partition doesn't exsist anymore...? How did you instal win-7?

There are a couple of useful links re' the reset routine at this site (another forum to give it credit). The first link is for the manual..

Page 74 in the manual describes the various options.

Be "very aware" that a factory reset will erase "all" your personal files in the process. So first ensure you have copied anything you wouldn't wish to lose to external storage beforehand. Typically to DVD but an external hard drive too is nice(r). Verify the copies are accessible too on at least one other system (if possible) as well as the current one.

What OS was there originally?

Question is poorly worded. Windows is not a program, it's an operating system. There are 'good' pirated copies & 'bad' pirated copies. If it's 'good', you will have no problems & should have gotten the white "Get Windows 10" icon; if it's 'bad', you should have gotten a warning about it not being Genuine.

Dood point from riider...

I took the post as the OS itself being a problem; whereas it could well be an application (a programme) that is the problem... So we really need to know which it is - the actual Windows OS itself or a programme/appication?
