    OK The only thing I can access is on the screen that first comes up and that's the acer screen. At the bottom left has press F2 enter setup. I press F2. Information, Main, Security, Boot, and Exit appear. I can look through them. When I press F5 at the acer startup screen, it gives me an option to choose my OS or do a memory check. I can do a memory check. When I click on OS it does not enter safe mode. It shuts off and on over and over. I Can't use the dvd drive either. I was told my hard drive may be corrupt or failed. I don't understand how. It was working fine yesterday and a blue window popped up saying windows has shut down to prevent system damage. Also, a computer check revealed my OS is not found. Anymore advice as what is going on and how to fix it. I can fix a desktop inside out, but not a laptop. Thanks.

You should install WindowsPE, a disk resident Windows. Download WinPE,121 Mb, burn the CD and boot your system from there. Once started up, look if there is any option to repair "Blue Screen" issue. CD also let's you check the integrity of your hard disk.

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.

Emachines e525 bios password


After hours of searching I finally found a fix:
1. Remove the battery
2. Remove the HDD
3. Removed the RAM to make the solder points, marker 'J1' on the motherboard visible
emachines-e525-bios-password-bueb2fgw15ei4wj3vksvhmc2-2-1.png 4. I then used a paper clip and sticky tape to join these solder points
5. With the solder points joined, insert one stick of RAM and turn the machine on
6. Wait until the laptop is in a post BIOS state (past the screen where you can press F2 for setup and where the logo shows) and remove the paper clip. This has to be removed while the laptop is still on.
7. Turn off computer, press F2 to enter BIOS and you should find there is no password.
Repeat the above steps if you find this doesn't work.

Hello, when i start my computer it freezes at the acer logo screen that says press f2 for setup when i press f2 it says please wait and freezes when i take out the hard drive it enters Bios. any ideas?


The hard disk could be faulty or the Windows operating system is corrupted and in this case Windows need to be reinstalled on the hard disk.
When the hard disk is in the computer and when you go into the BIOS and if the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk then most likely the hard disk is faulty.

Help i have a dell inspiron 530s and all of a sudden my keyboard and mouse do not work on when the logo of windows comes on in start up nor the mouse or keyboard work but my keyboard works on f2 and f8...


Try restoring your system bios to factory default and this may fix your problem. If not- post again with results and we'll go from there.

Entering System Setup

Turn on your computer.

When the blue DELL logo is displayed watch for the F2 prompt to appear (black screen / white text).

Once this F2 prompt appears, immdiately press F2 .

The F2 prompt indicates that the keyboard has initialized and is detected. This prompt can appear very quickly. Watch for it to display as the screen powers up, and then press F2. If you press F2 before you are prompted, this keystroke will be lost. There is a small window of time to do this before Windows starts.
If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop. Then, shut down your computer and try again to enter setup. At setup check your bios version. It may need to be flashed (upgraded). Select load factory defaults to see if that will resolve your PCI issues.

When you first start your computer how do get it to read the disc first?


You go into Boot Menu, and set the - first boot device to CDROM.
The computer will then read what is in the optical drive, first.

Computer off, press the Power On button. Watch closely for the blue dell logo.
Looking at the bottom of the monitor screen when the blue Dell logo comes up, you will see - F2 = Setup.
At the top right of the screen you will see F12 = Boot Menu.

This screen goes by F-A-S-T!
As SOON as you see the blue Dell logo press the F12 key.

If you miss this small window of opportunity, just wait for Windows to fully load, then click on Start, Turn Off Computer, and Restart.

If Windows is not loading, then press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys at the SAME TIME. (Not shouting)
This will restart your computer so you can try again.

Upon entering Boot Menu you cannot use your mouse anymore, you have to use the keyboard.

The Boot Device Menu has the devices listed, and each device has a number next to it.

At the bottom of the menu, type the number that is next to CDROM, then press the Enter key.
