Try use last known settings that worked. If that doesn't work,reload your operating system, sounds like something might be corrupt.

I have an acer aspire one notebook, last night while i was on the internet it froze up. I powered it down and it will not restart. You can see the battery lights light up and hear the fan running, its not...


When you hit F2 it takes you to the BIOS menu, and that's where you should go and while in there go to Boot, and using arrow keys select the one that says IDE WDC and move it with F6 to position 1. Then press F10 and select Yes. Restart and it should work. Post back if still having trouble.

Hi im having trouble with getting my desktop to come up. its just showing start thats it and saying location is not availble


It sounds like you have maybe two problems.
Firstly, press start and when it shows the BIOS menu, press F2. Select default settins from the menu and save with F10.
Press start again, if it doesn't try to load after the POST, (BIOS menu) and press F8 as it is starting to boot up. Select Safe Mode and let it run until it has finished loading. Close down and it should have repaired itself. If it hasn't, and I am assuming it does get past the BIOS menu because if it doesn't there is a MotherBoard fault and it will require technical support through Toshiba.
If it doesn't load but gets past POST, as it finishes the BIOS option menu, (F2 or F12) press F8 and select recovery. Follow the prompts and that should sort your problem out.

Hope that helps.

Acer 5620 pressing f8 at start wont load bios either


F8 is usually reserved for Windows Safe Mode. BIOS settings are usually found with by pressing ESC, Delete, or F2 on most system. Some times I run my finger along the entire row of function keys like a piano if it isn't specified which key works during boot up.

My Acer Aspire 1500 laptop wont pass startup.


It seems that your laptop hardware is good and it seems that it is a software issue.

  1. Boot in safe mode: When your laptop start, press the F8 key. then it will ask you which boot device to boot from, browse using the arrow keys and chose something with HDD and press ENTER and then press the F8 key again. Then you will be given a boot option and choose SAFE MODE.
  2. While in SAFE MODE, try to uninstall your newly installed software that might be causing the laptop to hung up.
  3. Also, click Start => Run then type: msconfig.
  4. Go to the Startup Tab and uncheck the many programs that looks not necessary to load while windows is loading. The program like Yahoo Messenger, Skype can be opened manually so uncheck them if present.
  5. Click Apply then OK.
  6. Restart your laptop and see if it helps.

Cant get into safe mode. tried toggling f8/f7 together but nothing


the key to getting into safe mode....tapping F8 (only that key) super fast, not stopping until you hear a beep...and see the option to boot into safe mode.  The most common reason that it will not work is that it is not pressed fast enough or early enough.  You will know that you missed your chance if you see the windows loading screen......start pressing it right away when you restart your computer and don't stop pressing F8 until you see the black screen with the white letters giving you the option to boot into safe mode.  
Good Luck!
