    How to reset Acer W510 without recovery disks or KB dock

    I was given an Acer W510 that came with no recovery media (the original disks or a micro USB flash recovery)
    It also does not have the keyboard dock with it. I am stumped as to how I might reset this tablet. If I could find someone to make me a USB recovery drive, that might work but they would have to have the same tablet, right? If someone on the forum has the means to make a recovery USB for me, please do contact me. I'm trying to set this up for my daughter to use so your help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would recommend you making the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or USB drive.
    Windows 8 - Create a Factory Default Backup - Acer Recovery Management - YouTube
    Windows 8 - Create a Drivers and Applications Backup - Acer Recovery Management - YouTube
    Windows 8 - Restore Windows With a USB Recovery Drive - YouTube
    You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from the OEM manufacturer's website.
    You can Order Acer recovery disks from here:
    Acer | Recovery Media
    Check in Accessories
    or check the main web site.
