Re: The aspire one boots in but thee is no display - no...
Do you want to change the BIOS settings to the default/factory setting?
Do you want a fresh clean Windows setup?
This means you need your Restore CD or a Windows CD.
Also you need the drivers for all the devices that are installed on the laptop (you may need to download them from the ACER WEB site) plus install all your other programs such as MS Office etc.
I suggest you back up your data before you reinstall Windows because most likely your data will be wiped.
To start this process you need to bootup the laptop with the Windows or Restore CD and follow the screen instructions.

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.
you need to adjust the refresh rate of the screen if it is a desktop monitor simply press the menu button on the monitor and go through thee adjust display settings or if it is a laptop go to the run bar and search for display settings
Well for one it sounds like you may have used a monitor other than the laptops and selected this as the default monitor. When you boot the system go into your monitor settings and select the on-board graphics which came installed with your unit. also it could be that the screen has gone out. But if you have been playing with an external monitor this may be your problem. Open Control panel find your graphics and restore this back to default monitor settings.This can be set in BIOS settings as well back to on board graphics and display.

Maybe. If you have a home network, then you can SHARE a CD drive on a desktop with the netbook.
Many laptop vendors put a special restore partition on the disk. At boot up, you should see a brief black and white message that says hit F? for boot sequence. At that next screen will be an option to restore you computer. Be aware, you are going to loose anything you have done since you bought the computer, think data, settings, pictures, etc. Hope this information will help. Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using Fixya...
Alt-f10 will reload the restore dvd and boot from that. It has to be in the drive and detected before it works. That will restore or reset windows bak to factory so everything on the drives will be gone ie your pictures email etc etc so be careful.
When you first power on the keys to get into bios are very quickly displayed. This will be ESC or alt-F1 or some other key depending on the bios version. Unless you need to adjust hardware settings you won't need to use the bios.
Go into bios F2 whilst booting,get to know how to configure these pages/enable correct boot sequence.use"tab" to navigate and arrow keys.save and exit or restore to factory default settings,"enter" to select option etc
does it start?Yes:go to its BIOS and set your CD drive to be the first one to boot. Read the screen menu on what to press to enter BIOS or read manual. No: Check your power supply if it is properly plugged and the battery for it might be loose.
does it display your windows start button? Yes: right click on the display and select arrange icons by: then select "show desktop icons". No: your computer might not have proper boot up. need to restore and follow the above solution.
Well it is most likely a issue with the Video driver as you are able to boot to the safe mode.I would suggest going back to the safe mode and deleting the present driver for the video from the device manager.before you restart the system just download the latest version from the support.dell.com so that you can reinstall it.Also check in the graphic properties which screen is set to be the defuat.Incase still not working i would suggest reinstalling the operating system before replacing any hardware.
If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run.
When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode.
Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots.
Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
