There is a slider switch at the front, next to the input connectors, slide it across and let go and it will tell you on screen it's enabled

HOW to tget to bios acer aspire AST180-ED400A


Immediately after pressing the power up button, start repeatedly pressing F2 while the Acer logo is displaying. The Bios setup screen should appear. If you press F2 too soon, the keyboard may not have initialized yet. If you press it too late, Windows will proceed to launch. Press it once, wait a second, press, it again, wait another second, and repeat this while the Acer logo is displaying until you see the bios setup screen.

This is standard approach with most Acers. That said, some laptops may defer to either Ff being the key to press or CTRL+ALT+EXC. Such would be entered as the above mentioned F2. Your Aspire appears to be a desktop and I suspect F2 will suffice.

I need to wipe my acer aspire pc with vista. Do I need a recovery disc I do not remember it coming with one?


You can do it without disk to but for it should be hiddden partition is installled when your vista is load first time.For that
There is one option in bios D2d enable it .then save settings.
For enter bios when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key then go to main menu find D2d
then enable then save and exit.
Then when it restart press ALT +F2
then you see recovery mode follow the procedure and wiped acer.
But if there is not any recoverry then you need recovery disk.

Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.

Using acer aspire 5920 and touchpad has stopped working since installing usb optical mouse


Press Fn + F7 at the same time to activate and deactivate the touchpad.

The Fn key, or function key, can be used to activate or deactivate a number of functions depending on what F-key it is pressed with.

I have an acer aspire L350 i want to restore it from the recovery partition but i dont know what to press to get to it please help


When you first turned on your laptop from new, you should have been prompted to create back up disks of your system.

If you did not do this, then you can try the following.

Most models of Acer Aspire have recovery system capabilities.
When booting up press F2 to enter the bios. Make sure that D2D recovery system is enabled then exit and save the changes. Press Alt+F10 to enter recovery. If this does not work for you then contact Acer for replacement recovery disks.

I hope this helps

Have lost my connection to the internet via my belkin wireless router


you may have accidently turned off the wifi, some note books have a switch on the side for this, others use a (blue writing) Fn + F2 or F5 key. yours may be different. check the blue icons on the F keys for one that looks like the wifi symbol.

Also check in the device manager that the wifi card is not disabled.

Try rebooting the router also.

post back your laptop make/modl for more specific advice if required.
