The key to getting into safe mode....tapping F8 (only that key) super fast, not stopping until you hear a beep...and see the option to boot into safe mode.  The most common reason that it will not work is that it is not pressed fast enough or early enough.  You will know that you missed your chance if you see the windows loading screen......start pressing it right away when you restart your computer and don't stop pressing F8 until you see the black screen with the white letters giving you the option to boot into safe mode.  
Good Luck!

My acer extensa keyboard not working


Hello,

Please run system in safe-mode and see if it works then.


If both the keyboard and the touch-pad are not working, please remove the battery and run laptop on A/C.

If that doesn't help, reseat the keyboard cable on the mainboard.

If all fails, replace keyboard - It's a few US $

Acer 5620 pressing f8 at start wont load bios either


F8 is usually reserved for Windows Safe Mode. BIOS settings are usually found with by pressing ESC, Delete, or F2 on most system. Some times I run my finger along the entire row of function keys like a piano if it isn't specified which key works during boot up.

You boot files could be damaged. Try booting up in Safe mode. To boot in to Safe Mode. Press the F8 key while booting up and you will get a list of booting options. Choose the Safe mode. If you are able to boot up in Safe mode, then the next normal boot should solve the issue.

Blue screen on acer extensa 5630 laptop it says its my intel display driver


Try rebooting the computer in safe mode with networking...this is usually done by tapping the F8 key while the manufacturers splash screen shows up for a few seconds. Once the multi-boot screen comes up scroll to safe mode with networking and click ok. Once the computer boots up, it will probably be using a generic video driver to show a picture, go to acer's support site and download a fresh driver, the link is below....good luck. when you click the link, make sure you pick what operating system you are using to get the correct driver. click on drivers > notebook > aspire > 5630 > choose operating system.

Its on but just has a blank screen ??


First see if it will boot in the Safe Mode, pressing F8 when the computer starts up. Choose Safe Mode in the boot option. If it will boot in the safe mode. Restart the computer and press F8 again and select Start in the last known configuration. Hopefully
this will fix the problem. If not and you are running XP Pro, boot in the safe mode and do a restore. you get there by clicking Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore, choose a date that the computer was working and click Restore.

Hi
It seems that your computer is infected with a spyware. I will give you some steps to try and resolve this.

Step - ( This will remove spy wares from the computer )
Open this link and download Free superantispyware
http://www.superantispyware.com/
Scan your computer with this and clean it.

If it does not let you download this, you need to try this in the "Safe mode with Networking"

Step to go to "Safe mode with Networking"
Turn off the computer. As soon as you turn it on start tapping the key "F8" untill you get a black screen with options of "Safe mode" and "Safe mode with Networking", select the second one and than log on to the computer.

Your display will be big and distorted in safe mode, dont worry as its a diagnostics mode.
Once downloaded the software you might need to rung the software in normal mode as sometimes this software does not work in the safe mode.
To get back to the normal mode. Simply restart your computer.

Hope this should take care of your issue.
