Got an Acer 4050 from ebay and it goes straight to enter boot password


can you click on f12 before it goes to boot password?
The F12 Boot Menu allows you to choose which device that you would like to boot the computer's Operating System from by pressing the F12 key during the computer's Power On Self Test, or POST process. Some notebook and netbook models have the F12 Boot Menu disabled by default.
If this sounds like your problem then try this:
If this sounds like
To enable the F12 Boot Menu:


  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Press the F2 key to enter computer's BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test, or POST, process while the Acer logo is being displayed.
  3. Press the Right Arrow key to select Main
  4. Select F12 Boot Menu
  5. Press the Enter key
  6. Select Enabled
  7. Press the Enter key
  8. Press the F10 key and then press the Enter key to save the changes and restart the computer.
Note: Not all Acer notebooks or netbooks have the F12 Boot Menu feature. Computers that do not have the F12 Boot Menu feature will not be able to enable the feature within the BIOS. I hope this works for you if not, then the problem is obviously not the boot menu. Go to Acer support for more help

Notebook only goes to f2 or f12 wont boot


If you can't get passed the F2, F12 then maybe the keys are disabled.. Windows does this sometimes. To release just hit "F".. if that doesn't do the trick then probably drive is corrupt..
You will need to restore using restore disc if you have one.

im sorry to hear that but unfortunately, if youre not the one who created the BIOS password, theres no way for you t acces it anymore, what you can do is to reseat the CMOS battey on the motherboard so that BIOS password will be reset.


Hope this will help...
