Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I have no recovery disk and when I press alt F10 it doesnt go into recovery, not sure how to go into safe mode any suggestion?
Try F8, that's usually safe mode. press it like once a second as it's booting.
what's your specific problem-- cant boot windows?
can you try putting a windows install disk in and choosing "repair" when it boots? (you want to make sure you dont format your drive though, repair wont do that usually if youre careful)

this case, first you have to enter setup by pressing F2 at boot time,
as soon as the ACER logo appears in the screen. Then, you will need
to switch the SATA Mode to IDE from AHCI.
Main -> SATA Mode -> IDE
is done to allow Window XP to see your SATA.as an IDE disk and
install the system.
you get the external USB CD/DVD driver to use with a Windows XP
installer CD, connect it to you laptop, switch it on and press F2
again to enter Setup.
time, scroll over to the BOOT menu and press Enter. Scroll down to
the last option USB CD- Rom and then use the F5 key to move it to the
top of the boot list order. Then press Escape and then F10 and finally Enter. The computer will restart and load the CD and you can start
the installation of Windows XP.
Hope this info may help you!
