My acer Aspire 7551 will not boot up, when i turn it on it says press F2 for settings?


I am no tech and don't say this is the way to FIX the prob but I was having major issues getting my ASUS to "waike up" after leaving on into hybernation or sleep. I could try 6-10 times but it would always hang at the ASUS screen and after a few minutes "ding" again like it was trying to restart. I then would have to hold power key down until it shut off agin, retry and retry. NOW.. I have the printer on before I hit power button and right after I do, I turn the power off to the printer - Canon MX860...I guess it somehow forces the computer do something but the bottem line is it has worked every time. If I power down the computer, have not yet had any probs starting it back up. Hope it helps though I am sure there is a "right" way to fix

When you push the power button, the button turns green but the computer doesnt start up. The lights are on but there is nobody home, there is no sound indicating that the computer is starting up.


Hi,

Remove the battery, and unplug the A/C adapter and hold down the power button, for 40 seconds.Soon your laptop will reset,and run well.Now you will install all the accessories and start.

Hope this helps you.

  • Hello blyth33, if by chance you didn't 'create a "Supervisor Password" to prevent anyone from changing the configurations in the BIOS / CMOS Setup? than we are 'OK!' Lets just say [No] for now. Bootup / Start the computer, and follow these steps: 1. When you hear the computer start-up, there will be a message that flashes very quickly at the bottom of the screen, it will read; Press F2 or F12 or on other "Computers, the 'Key Sequence may be [F11]..." The area of your attention will be [F2] Key at the top of the keyboard. The F2 Key will open the CMOS / BIOS Setup. paul7of9_15.jpg 2. Once this screen appear, you will see a 'Listing" of different set-ups. There will be instructions in the [right] Help ? area. You be using the "Arrow Keys" to (Select and Choose Items). In the first screen, there will be on the (right of the screen). 3. Set Supervisor Password = This is the "Password Setting that will prevent anyone from getting into without authorization this area that you are in now, to "Change or Configure" CMOS or BIOS setting. 4. Set User Password = This Password is use for "Logins / User Accounts... You want to "Reset or Change the Supervisor Password. Do so, and to finish; remember to use the [F10 Key] to 'Save the Changes.' Thanks for using Fix' Ya, and I hope this fix it, paul7of9

Need power on default password Battery died and this became the roblew


  • Hello mark_stru, I'm not sure which battery you are talking about; but if you are describing the CMOS Battery, this would be the cause of the 'Password'' problem. Note: you may need a "New CMOS Battery"! If it was just the "Rechargable" battery than we are talking about a lot of duration time that the computer was without power. So; if by chance you didn't 'create a "Supervisor Password" to prevent anyone from changing the configurations in the BIOS / CMOS Setup? than we are OK! Lets just say [No] for now. Once you have power to your computer. Start it up, and follow these steps: 1. When you hear the computer start-up, there will be a message that flashes very quickly at the bottom of the screen, it will read; Press F2 or F12. The area of your attention will be [F2] Key at the top of the keyboard. The F2 Key will open the CMOS / BIOS Setup. paul7of9_15.jpg 2.

My computer monitor is black with a white window that reads "computer going to sleep". I tried holding in the power button and I tried unplugging for 20 seconds. The mouse light is not on. Please advise on...


Somtimes holding the power button dosent work, you need to tap it as if you wher just turning it on.

There should be a FN key somwhere on the keyboard normally on the bottem left of the keyboard, then up the top you will have the F keys F1,F2, and so on, have a look and see if you can find one with a couple of zz's on it, hold down the FN key then press the F key with the Zz on it and the computer should wake up.

To stop this from happening you will need to go to controll panel and look for the power options, in there you should be able to adjust any sleep mode settings and even stop the computer sleeping.
