Question about AcerPower F2 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Computer boots up but no video display.

I have a AcerPower F2 computer here and when I boot it up, the lights indicate that the computer is going through the motions of booting up, but there is no video, not even pre-post. It has video on board. I tried to use a different video card, but still no post. It does not have an AGP slot, but I tried a PCI video card. Do you have suggestions? Thanks, Lorne

    Actually, I cannot even get in to the BIOS to make changes there. It just doesn't even boot that far. Tried a different monitor. No luck.

    But thanks.

If it has onboard video and you've added a video card, sometimes you need to disable the onboard video in the BIOS as it won't send output to both when they are there. I would try a different monitor and eliminate that as a possibility also.

Operating systems doesn't boot (BIOS beep codes)?


Do you have video going to your monitor? If not the beeps mean you have a bad memory stick in there. If you have video the beeps are the bios telling you that its not set right. More than likely you have it set to run too fast. Go into your bios find where the processor speed is located and choose a lower freq. rate. Its probably set too high for the memory you have.

How do I know if my boot ste up is correct


If your PC doesn't boot up using the hard drive, you can check that by looking for the F2 or F12 displayed on the screen during boot up. Then start pressing F2 or F12 quickly to get setup.
In setup follow the directions and set your "boot device" to "hard drive"
Hope this is what you needed.

Power failure,command display (no bootable cd)


It seems that your first boot was on cd or dvd, or may be your hard drive did not detect, to check both of them go to BIOS set up by pressing F2 or Delete on your keyboard to enter set up. When you are in set up mode go to Boot menu (if you can not see boot menu go to advance). In a boot menu select HDD as a first boot and Cd or DVD as a second boot, if you can not find your HDD it means that your HDD did not detect, and you need to replace it with a new one.
Hope it gives you a solution

Hi...

To enter bios it so easy. When you turn on your computer you just only press delete to enter bios. If the bios does not exist you can press also F2.

Have a friend that can't boot his computer to windows xp


Before trying to use any of Dell-net's suggestions, we've got to get you into the bios.

It looks generally like this:

You should see a message displayed when you start the computer that says press "Del or F2 or F10" to enter setup.

Once we get here, we can proceed.
