Reset acer laptop and is over a day and is still configurin

July 2, 2017 at 08:27:06
Specs: Android
Needed to reset acer laptop and clicked on it to reset everything. It's now about 20 hours later and is still going. It keeps sticking at 64% and then goes higher buy then goes back and keeps going in a circle. I don't know whether it is actually resetting properly and how long it is likely to take. Please can anyone help

Your specs say Android??

What was wrong that caused you to try a reset? That should have been the very last thing you tried after exhausting all other fixes. What exactly was wrong, what did you do to try to fix it (if anything) before trying the reset, & how did you go about attempting the reset? You can't fix a hardware problem by reinstalling software.

Nothing should take that long to complete. Press the Power Off/On button until the computer shuts down then see what happens when you restart.

If it's still stuck then at odd times discharging the motherboard components has been known to help this sort of situation. You turn off, remove the power cord and the main battery then press the Power Off/On button for at least 20 seconds.

Is your operating system Windows 8?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yes, the key here is why you thought that you needed to 'reset' your operating system. You need to confirm that it is actually a software issue that cannot be repaired by more basic methods first before choosing what you did. Telling us what was happening may help us understand the initial problem and be able to know how to go forward from this point. If it is a memory, hard drive, or other hardware issue, these need to be addressed before you can reset, repair, or reinstall your operating system. If it is really a software issue, knowing the problem would also be helpful, even now, as well as the method you chose and all that you see and hear when you try to start it up (after a forced shut down) so we can make suggestions. Some methods do a more complete wipe of the drive than others so that root infections in the system can actually be cleared out completely.

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

If you have other account on your laptop , you can get into your laptop and reset the old password with it . or go to the Microsoft site to download the iso files and make a bootable disc,Microsoft can support you in doing so with a free way. (I highly recommend it) .
Sure , you can even create one to reset your laptop .

I tried it twice on Microsoft yesterday (Made a bootable disk), but it didn't work.i don't know for a moment why.
So , if you have the same problem, try two other methods .don't worry, I've tested them on my old computer before and they're very helpful .

For others, I think the suggestion in #4 that a forced shut down causes damage is bunkum. Maybe if I suggested doing it 100 times a day or something but surely not just on one odd occasion when a computer is stuck.

Yes, vaskers, keep an idea on dates before you input. I doubt the original poster will return to this thread now.
