First unplud everything except the monitor and keyboard from the system. This can help to narrow down the problem. If it boots after doing this then one by one plug everything back in until you find the problem device.

Also try leaving it on the Acer screen for a while to see if you eventually get an error code. You might even have to let it set there for 30 minutes or so.

    It is most likely a hardware issue. The next step is to open the case and unplug everything except what is essential. For example you will want to unplug all drives and all but one of the ram sticks. Cycle through each ran stick checking to see if anything is different each time. If it behaves differently then plug the hard drive back in. Basically you just want to keep narrowing it down until you find the problem. If you are not comfortable messing around with the inside of your case then get a friend that is to help you out.

Blank screen after boot splash screen


Hi.

After you see the press Del and F12 message repeatedly tap the F8 key, see if that gets to the advanced boot menu, if it does select "Repair my Computer" from the list, and then follow the prompts. Have your Win 7 disk ready just in case you need it.

Let me know how you get on and good luck!!

Acer 5733z-4633 is stuck in a sort of boot loop. Won't enter bois setup or boot device options screen. Is this a hard drive issue?(it kinda makes a funny clicking noise then starts all over to try


Yes! it does sound like the hard drive is bad, remove hardware to see if you can enter bios and boot device, if yes the hard drive needs to be replaced, if no change there is a secondary problem.

How do i get into setup?


Watch the screen when you press the power button for which key to press to get into System Setup or Bios. Press Del repeatedly once you hit the Power Button.

Sound like you've got a memory issue.
Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Linux mint 12 won't boot from CD


Restart your computer, press repetedly a key to enter BIOS, normally Del, go to Advanced BIOS Features probably and change to boot primarly from CD/DVD (1st Boot Device CD/DVD , or something like that), save and exit BIOS, and restart your computer with Linux Mint CD inside. Be aware that if you make wrong changes in BIOS, you could damage your computer.

Acer computer is frozen on screen which reads press f12 or del to enter setup. when computer comes on it does not beep so i cannot use keyboard all the lights on the keyboard aare off. HELP!!


From the description you are giving, it appears that the system is not detecting a bootable hard disk drive. Hold the power button on the system till it powers off. once system is off, try the following:
  1. Ensure no floppy diskette is in the A: if system has a floppy drive
  2. Disconnect all external items (Printer, scanner, network connection) leave only video and keyboard connected to system.
  3. Try powering system on again
If the system gives the same message, try rebooting and pressing F12 ONCE at the ACER screen and see if you can get a 1 time boot menu. If you can get the boot menu, select CD-ROM, and put you WINDOWS CD in the optical drive, see if system will boot to the CD. If you can, then at the first prompt, press R to enter recovery console, and see if you can run the command CHKDSK /R (then press enter)
If chkdsk runs, then reboot and see if the error has gone away. IF you cannot run CHKDSK then the hard disk drive has likely failed and will need replacement.

Have you tried ignoring the message and letting it boot normally? The computer might be set to show the POST screen on boot. Let it run and see what happens.
