Correct spelling, explanation: this verb is irregular, which means, in its past form it doesn’t get suffix -ed, but has a different form. In the case of reset both past simple and past participle forms are spelled reset (just like the core verb set – set – set). Therefore
reseted is an incorrect form. Reset is the correct past form as the verb is irregular.
Definition of reset:
verb, to set something one more time; to turn something off and on again
I reset the program but I still have problems with logging in.
Please reset the timer to 1 minute.
Incorrect spelling, explanation:
reseted is an incorrect past form because the verb reset is irregular and therefore it doesn’t get suffix -ed in past forms. The correct past form is reset (both past simple and past participle). Usually, verbs that are originated in another irregular verb are also irregular (here it is set – set – set; another example can be understand – understood, from verb stand – stood).
