Ok fair enough.... boot the computer and watch the screen.... you need to watch for the key to enter setup.... delete key seems to be the most popular but i've had computers use f1 and f2, f11 and f12.... if it goes to fast hit pause as it gets to the point where it tells you the key to hit to enter setup.... after you are in change the boot sequence to boot to cdrom..... hit f10 and save the changes... reboot to the cd and continue with your install

How do reboot my acer no disk


To access the recovery partition on your Acer computer for a full restore, follow these steps:

1. Power on the Computer
2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the left ALT KEY and press the F10 key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery.
3. Once eRecovery has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings
4. Click OK
5. From here, the eRecovery process will replace all the data on the C:\ partition and restore the factory image.
6. After eRecovery has run, press OK to reboot.

NOTE: All data will be lost during this process and your computer will be brought back to it's original factory state and settings.

If this fails because you have deleted the recovery partition or changed the hard disk due to failure you will require a restore CD.

The Restore CD costs approximately $19.95 (plus taxes) including shipping. If you have a unit from US or Canada, you may purchase the recovery disc from Acer store : Acer Store
If you have purchased the computer in any other country, you may contact Acer support here : Acer Global Support

Got an Acer 4050 from ebay and it goes straight to enter boot password


can you click on f12 before it goes to boot password?
The F12 Boot Menu allows you to choose which device that you would like to boot the computer's Operating System from by pressing the F12 key during the computer's Power On Self Test, or POST process. Some notebook and netbook models have the F12 Boot Menu disabled by default.
If this sounds like your problem then try this:
If this sounds like
To enable the F12 Boot Menu:


  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Press the F2 key to enter computer's BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test, or POST, process while the Acer logo is being displayed.
  3. Press the Right Arrow key to select Main
  4. Select F12 Boot Menu
  5. Press the Enter key
  6. Select Enabled
  7. Press the Enter key
  8. Press the F10 key and then press the Enter key to save the changes and restart the computer.
Note: Not all Acer notebooks or netbooks have the F12 Boot Menu feature. Computers that do not have the F12 Boot Menu feature will not be able to enable the feature within the BIOS. I hope this works for you if not, then the problem is obviously not the boot menu. Go to Acer support for more help

How can i swich on my acer aspire 5630 it ask me for hdd pasword


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there hope this helps

also
The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps

My PC doesn't load


Restart computer. Watch closely at the bottom of the screen for an F command.

This F command will allow to enter setup.

When computer is loading, start pressing F12 repeatedly until setup is opened.

When setup opens, you'll see a file menu that runs across the top of the screen. It will start from the left and move to the right - press F9. When prompted, select "restore default settings". Move to each file menu and press F9 and set "default settings".

When you come to the Exit menu, do the same thing, then select the Exit Menu, and choose the "Exit Saving Settings" option.

Once it exits, it will automatically restart and begin the loading process into Windows (or your operating system).

If the OS does not load, you will need to re-enter setup: under the file menu, search for an option that will allow you to enable a second F command which should be F5 or F10. Once this is done, go to exit, and select "exit saving settins".

The computer will begin loading, but you will want to restart the computer - watch again at the bottom of the screen for the new F command - remember what it is when you are in setup, and begin pressing it as before with the F12 command - the F5 (F10) will bring you to an option menu for starting the computer - select the "start in safe mode" option.

If the computer does not load in safe mode, you will need to format the hard drive and re-install the Operating System.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
