When you first boot up the computer the screen will flash briefly the key/s to enter the BIOS.
Try F10

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 do i reboot my acer aspire E1-510 from cd or dvd disc


It appears to be F2 on startup when you first see the Acer Logo
I searched the model via www.acer.com - aspire E1-510 and there are links to the manuals,
A note says. to activeate the BIOS utility press <F2> when you see the Acer logo during boot up.
you should then be able to select the boot order. e.g CD/ DVD, USB, Hard Disk etc.
Also try F9 for Windows boot options.

Hey i have an Acer 5542, i bought it in spain, it is in spanish , but when i press f2 on the start up its in english so i guess i can change the whole system to english, any help much appreciated!!!!!!


When you press F2 during start-up, you enter the BIOS, which is separate from your OS (Windows/Linux/Mac). Your OS only has the files required for it to be in the language it started in, so i'm afraid that you're stuck with spanish unless you have a Windows installation disk

Can't find bios password for acer aspire 5542


There is no such thing! If the bios is locked it is because a PW was written to it They come without passwording being set. The only way to remove it is the open the RAM cover and find the two pins and short them out then close the cover and reboot.

Acer Aspire T180


check your removable media disk drives and make sure that you don't have like a jump drive or CD-Rom that the computer doesn't like. If that doesn't work, enter the BIOS setup (usually F2, F12, ESC or something like that....check the bottom of the screen.) and find the Boot Order settings & move hard drive to #1
