Acer laptop stuck on Windows boot manager


1. Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time.
2. During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup."

3. Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears.
If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2.

4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard.

5. Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection.
The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

    How do I access the blue letters on keys?


    Try holding the Alt or Ctrl key down, if not then look for a Function key or a blue key (not F1 -> F12)

    Hi, I want to connect my acer aspire notebook to my tv, how do i go about doing this?


    Alright didn't really know what acer model you have, but this is pretty easy, you can attach your Tv to either oneof the external source outlet on your acer and Press the FN button between your left ctrl and alt key. There should be a symbol in the F keys exm, (f1, f2 ) in which i believe acer is the F5 key... that looks like a laptop'a sqaure.... Press those two keys and depending if you have it hook up to the HDMI or VGA, just press until you find the correct port via vga/svideo/hdmi.

    The keys to modify other keys are 'shift', 'alt gr', and in some laptops 'fn', 'ctrl' and 'alt' also affect key, but they are more use for shortcuts and less to alternate key symbols.
