How do I unlock the Bios on an Acer ES-1 111M Laptop


To boot from a CD, DVD or USB device, make sure that the device has boot sequence priority over the hard drive.

BIOS Boot

BIOS (Basic Input Output Subsystem) is a programmable chip that controls how information is passed to various devices in the computer system. A typical method to access the BIOS settings screen is to press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the boot sequence.
BIOS settings allow you to run a boot sequence from a floppy drive, a hard drive, a CD-ROM drive or an external device. You may configure the order that your computer searches these physical devices for the boot sequence.
The first device in the order list has the first boot priority. For example, to boot from a CD-ROM drive instead of a hard drive, place the CD-ROM drive ahead of the hard drive in priority.
Before you set boot priority for a USB device, plug the device into a USB port.
To specify the boot sequence:
  1. Start the computer and press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the initial startup screen. Depending on the BIOS manufacturer, a menu may appear.
  2. Choose to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS setup utility page appears.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT tab. System devices appear in order of priority.
  4. To give a CD or DVD drive boot sequence priority over the hard drive, move it to the first position in the list.
  5. To give a USB device boot sequence priority over the hard drive, do the following:
    • Move the hard drive device to the top of the boot sequence list.
    • Expand the hard drive device to display all hard drives.
    • Move the USB device to the top of the list of hard drives.
  6. Save and exit the BIOS setup utility.
  7. The computer will restart with the changed settings.

Boot Priority Options

Some computer manufacturers allow you to select the device that contains the boot sequence from a special device selection menu. The example below uses a Dell system board.
To set boot priority using a device selection menu:
  1. When the computer starts to boot up, after the manufacturer's ID screen, press F12 several times. The device selection menu appears.
  2. Use the up and down arrows to select CD-ROM or

My acer notebook wont reboot from a usb hard drive device


Hi there,

If you want to boot your computer from a USB device you need to go into your BIOS settings and make sure that your USB hard drive is set in the boot list above your regular hard drive. I cannot give exact settings as the BIOS is different on each machine, but in a nutshell what you do is when the computer first boots up, you have to either press F1, F2, esc, enter, F12 etc. If you are lucky your computer will tell you what button to press to access the bios. When you get into it, you need to find your boot settings. On this list you can tell the computer what order it should boot from. Make sure the USB device is higher on the list than the computer's hard drive. Hopefully this will work for you. Any other questions just leave a comment and I'll get back to you.

Hello my Acer Aspire M5640 just crashed it powers up but bios does not boot up can you help thanks I pulled memory out and cpu fan and power supply fan are on


If you have no 'BIOS' startup display, try:
  • Unplug the PC from the main AC power to force a hard reset. Reboot and test.
  • cleaning the memory board 'gold' contact with a white soft pencil eraser and swap them around if you have a couple. Reboot and test.
  • using a single memory board if you have more than one. Reboot and test for each memory board individually.
If you have 'BIOS' startup display, but fail to boot, also try:
  • Check and re-seat all external and internal cables (HDD, USB), and PCI cards (eg. Video)
  • Check Bios setting expecially for HDD
Hope it helps and good luck!

Cant restore acer netbook back to facotry settings did not do backup when purchased


Recovery procedure for Acer netbooks.

Important Information

The Recovery disc will help you to restore the hard drive with the original software content that was installed when you purchased your notebook. Follow the steps below to rebuild your hard drive. Your drive will be reformatted and all data will be erased. It is important to back up all data files before you use this option.

Restoration procedure:

1. Press the power button to turn the system on.

2. Select to boot from a USB optical drive. There are two ways to do this:

2.1. Press <F2> during the Power-On Self-Test (when the Acer logo is displayed onscreen after bootup) to enter BIOS Setup.

2.1.1. Select the Boot menu.

2.1.2. Refer to onscreen instructions to set the first device to any bootable optical disc drive.

2.2. Press <F12> during the Power-On Self-Test (when the Acer logo is displayed onscreen after bootup), and select the USB ODD from the list that appears.

3. Ensure the Recovery disc is in an external (USB) optical disc drive, and exit the boot selection menu, by selecting Exit Saving Changes from the Exit menu or pressing <F10>, or by pressing <Enter> as appropriate.

4. Select Exit Saving Changes from the Exit menu or press <F10>.

5. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation process.

6. When you finish the recovery process, please remove the Recovery disc and insert the System disc again.

7. Restart your computer.



Create a Recovery USB device

You will need a second computer with an ODD to complete this procedure.

1) Insert the Recovery CD into the optical drive. Plug in a USB/flash drive with a minimum capacity of 1 GB.

2) Enter the BIOS setup and set the first boot device to the ODD. Save the changes and exit.

3) Allow your computer to boot up.

4) From the list of options, select "install2usb".

5) You will see a list of available disks, select the USB drive you plugged in.

6) Click the next button to complete the procedure.

7) Remove the USB ODD and USB/flash drive. You now have the Recovery system stored in your USB/flash drive, for future use if necessary.
