Correct spelling, explanation: reset is an infinitive verb or its past participle form. It means that no endings are added to the base, making the past tense of this verb. This is simply an irregular verb that form should be remembered by the users of the English language. Reset consists of two elements the prefix re and the verb set which means place something somewhere. After adding this prefix re, there is a change in the meaning of the word but the form is the same in Past Simple: set – set – set, not
setted. And similarly, the word reset, its past simple – reset and past participle also reset, not resetted. To sum up, reset is the correct form and resetted does not exist.
Definition of reset:
verb, to put something back in the original position or place,

Incorrect spelling, explanation:
resetted is not an English word. It cannot be accepted as the past verb form of reset because this verb has an irregular form that remains unchanged. Unfortunately, resetted is a common mistake because it can be a typo for a word like resettled but it refers to a completely different thing as to establish something again. Therefore, resetted has incorrect conjugation of the verb reset and it should not be used in English.
