I have and Acer Aspire x1301, how do I log onto the BIOS?


When you boot up the Acer will display briefly the key to press to get into the BIOS setup.
This maybe F1 or F2 or F10 or F2 etc.
Check the start up screen for the function key to get into the BIOS setting.

My sisters Acer Aspire 5810TZ has a virus but when we go to log onto her laptop the screen goes black and wont let us do anything to try and get rid of the virus. What should we do.


Try booting into safe mode first. During boot up press F8 a few times, you should get a safe mode menu to; start windows normal, or safe mode, chose safe mode an see if that will get you logged in.

Acer monitor model # AL2223W screen goes black


need some clarifications on here. you connected the Acer Monitor to your Dell laptop right? when you opened the screen goes black. i believe you have to press the FN + F7 or FN + F5 on your laptop to make a display on the Acer Monitor.

My srceen goes Blank


Hi,

first try booting the laptop and pressing the Fn key with the numerical ( numbered key ) that has a picture of 2 screens on it. This is for booting to an external monitor. you could also try adding an external ( pc monitor ) this will eliminate any motherboard Faults.

Secondly, the graphics chip driver may be corrupt or not installed correctly. if you have a restore cd, you could try booting the laptop, with the cd in the drive.

you can then try, to see if the settings in the bios are all correct, by booting/starting the laptop and pressing esc or F2 or delete immediately as the laptop starts. ** Be-Careful** what you adjust.
My suggestion is to look for. ** default settings tab** or load setup defaults.

these are the obvious things to try, before assuming that you have a faulty graphics chip or motherboard fault.

Im having trouble starting my acer laptop, iv tried pressin f2 and f8, and tried pressing safe mode options and others available, but it just goes onto the windows loading page and then to a black screen...


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

Please rate my awnser. Thank you.

My acer 5100 laptop will not boot. I get a mesage "hard failure may be imminent, press F1 and continue" When I press F1 the cursor blinks at top left of screen and does nothing else.


I have one of these! also did you change your operating system? If not when it boots press F2 it will take you to the bios. In this you will see if your hard drive is being recognized. Let me know what happens and I will try to assist you further. Take care.
Be mucho blessed,

Monitor will not start up!!


It may be a corrupt backup you are trying to install, but if there is a corrupt file you will need to borrow a genuine XP disc off a friend to repair it. You can use your own license number for the copy so your friend shouldnt be concerned with piracy. You may get the pc running by locating on the motherboard either the 3 pin JBAT1 terminal and put jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 then back to 1-2, or short both pins if you have a 'CLRCMOS', 'CLRRTC' or 'RTC' 2 pin terminals with a jumper cap. Restart pc and it should make you press F1 to set the cmos time and date and hopefully boot into windows, but if not the first paragraph will be the solution to the problem.
