You may have your keyboard set to Italian or Spanish configuration. The shift of the 2 is a quote mark on my Italian friend's laptop.

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.

How can I get my laptop screen to rotate back to the original screen position?


to rotate the screen in the laptop you can do in two ways.make sure you close all the programs running in the computer before attempting these two steps
1) press and hold the ctrl and alt in the keypad they'll be located at the bottom left part of keyboard..while holding these two keys simultaneously press any one of the four navigation keys(Up,Down,Right,Left arrow keys) depending on how the screen is currently..if its upside down press up arrow key if its tilted towards right press left vice versa.
2)right click on desktop choose graphics settings and then choose display settings where you'll have the option to rotate the screen..

good luck hope this resolves the issue

Directing output of ACER X203H computer (Vista o.s.)


Hi,
this is usually done by Pressing fn And a corresponding numerical Key.
for example if key number 3 or 4 on your laptop, has what looks like a double screen icon. pressing fn and that key, would tell the laptop to connect to an external display.
if this does,nt work you need to setup a dual configuration screen.
this will be done in My Computer/Control Panel/Display.

Hello. I have just bought an Acer Aspire 6920 Laptop. The problem is when i need the @ symbol I get the " symbol and visa versa. I have selected United Kingdom as my keyboard layout. What's going on?


Hello Bobster079,

Here is a couple of things to try:

1) Get into the Bios and set it to default setting (may be F9 button), then save setting. Then reboot and try.

if this does not work, then move in to next step.

2) Hold down and press the "fn" button and press the "Scroll Lock" button. This works like a toggle switch.

Hope this is helpfull and good luck.
