Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Unlocking laptop from safemode.

I turned off my laptop with the on/off button instead of the shut down option, and now I can't get into my account. I have tried pressing F2 on start up and selecting the different safe mode options, but I still can't get into my account. Could you please help?

If u forgot ur password or if it got messed up in the file system you can try a repair installation or a system file reinstall using your operating disk (you will not lose any of your programs or files

    if that don't work you will need to delete install then reformat then install a fresh copy( which then you will lose all data you have saved

    if it is a security code for BIOS that is lost or forgotten then you will have to physically go inside and reset BIOS or disconnect the memory battery

Start button not working so cannot shut down


Assuming you know how, press the on button and hold it for more than five seconds -- your windows will shut down and computer will turn off. Then restart it in safemode, use SytemRestore to go back to a good restore point. That should get your Start button back to where it was when it worked.

My Compaq laptop will not boot up. It gets only


Tturn on your computer, then, before the windows boot screen appears, press the F8 key, this should bring up the start options , if it does not, turn off , turn back on and try again.
On the start options use the up/down arrows on keyboard to select "last known good configuration", press the enter key. Windows should start as normal if it does not do the process again but instead select "safemode" .

Safe mode business


safe mode automatically comes up when you didn't shut down properly. Just select boot as normal or last known good configuration then you are good to go.

uninstall any new hardware or software you have recently installed to cause the problem in the first place. If you haven't installed anything then windows should just start normally.

good luck
