    It says: "A problem occurred when trying to reset your computer. No change couldn't be made"

    But it is creating a recovery usb right now. That's a plus, i guess.
    That problem is because you have an EXTRA partition that was created when you upgraded your PC

    One last thing, what if F12 is also broken? I haven't tried it yet but most of my F keys are not working.

    Well, the computer shut itself down during the reset process and now i dont have an operating system installed on ssd. I don't if it was the overheat or not, im using a cooler, but it was also turning itself off while trying to upgrade to Windows 10. But after turning it on, it was restoring the previous system which was 8.1

    Now when trying all the options via usb, it just keeps shutting itself down.

    Never buying an Acer, ever again.

    Well believe it or not, i was able to clean install my system using TWO external air Ventilating fans directed at my computer to keep the heat from rising

    It reverted back to windows 8 now im working on updating it to windows 8.1. Then im gonna try one more time to install windows 10
