My computer is an Acer Aspire 5733Z-4633 with windows 7. It was running really slowly for a long time and I was desperate to somehow fix it. After trying many things for the past two years I thought I would try factory resetting it and reinstalling windows. Well while doing that it got to about half way reinstalled and then my computer just shut down/ over heat ( which it does a lot). I turned it back on and it popped back up as half finished but is stuck there. This happened about a week or two ago. Right after it happened I just have up and figured I could get another computer eventually. Well it hasn't worked out that way and I really need/ want my computer back. I turned it back on an it is still stuck on 19/34 , which is clear.fi v1.0. It says on the screen to plug in the charger and keep the computer on, which I guess when it over heated and shut down is what is causing the problem now. Is there some way to restart the windows reinstall process? Please any help would be great! Thanks in advance!

First I would find the cause of over heating, likely dust in the vents which can be blown out with canned air.  I have had installs dye for one or another reason, only once did I have to write 0's to the drive.  Writing 0's to the drive needs to be done using the drive manufacturers software, have a friend down load it ti w USB stick.  In the bios change the boot order to the stick, it will over write all previous data putting the drive back to its original state.

If you only have a recovery partition for factory reset and no install disks then you will lose the ability to factory reset if you zero out the drive. I would try doing another factory reset by pressing the Alt + tap F10 at boot

This video says to also use the Ctrl key so if Alt + F10 does not work try doing it as shown in the video.
