    Take out the hard drive completely from the system and then turn the system on and see if you can go into the BIOS by pressing F2.

    Is the unit overheating?

    Check that the CPU fan is working properly.

    Also, reseat the memory.

    Do you hear the hard drive spin up?

Try logging in to safe mode. if it freezes still i suspect your OS (operating system) is corrupted. you might need to reformat it.

Emachine when i turn it on says press f2 to start setup but ive tried it but it wont do anything why?


Some keyboards have an f-lock key that you enable quickly as the computer starts to boot. Only then will the F2 button work. If you are too slow to hit the f-lock key the computer will boot past the time window that allows you to enter the setup.

I have an Acer aspire one netbook. As soon as i turn it on, it shows the first screen that is black with ACER on it, but it just freezes there. I can't access the computer unless i press F2 and exit setup....


Looks like there is something wrong with the registry database of your computer. Best way to fix is to clean Windows registry using some reliable software such as Reginout and start your computer normally. Also do the following.

> Limit your startup programs

> Uninstall unwanted programs

> Disable background running services

Thanks

The Acer freezes all the time right when I turn it on. I can't get further than the message: Windows is starting now. Tried trouble shooting over the phone with an acer technician. I need to send it...


Before you send the computer for repair, please follow the below steps:
It may happen due to hardware failure, BIOS mismatch or due to static charge. Let us try the basic troubleshooting. Turn Off the Computer, remove all the devices attached to the computer, the power cable and battrey, now holdon the power button for 15 secs (make sure adpater and battery are uplugged) it will drain out all the static charge. Now, restart the computer and keep on tapping F2, you will enter to BIOS setup utility, press F9 (click "Yes", if you are prompted) and then press F10 (Click "Yes", if you are prompted), it will restart the computer. If still it is not booting to normal mode, then we have to perform a full system recovery & it is a distructive process as you will loose all the datas on the computer. To do so, Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

Acer Aspire 5100 back to factory settings


You may be able to hold F2 as you power up to open up the "setup" screen. There should be an option to restore to factory defaults on that screen.

I have an Acer Labtop 4620z When I turn it on it Freezes after The Desk top Loads... HELP.. Won't let me connect .. virus disks freeze as well ???


Before the desktop tries to load, hit the F12 key a few times until the boot choices menu loads on the screen. Choose to load it in "safe mode with networking"
Once the computer starts up, find all your data, music, pictures you want to save, and back them onto a CD, or external hard drive.
Next, shut off the computer, restart it, and hit the delete, or F2 keyseveral times until it loads the "setup" page. Once you are in the setup page, you need to find the choices for what boots first.
Choose to boot from the CDROM drive. Save the settings. Insert the recovery CD into the drive. shut the PC off. Restart the PC, once the recovery CD starts, then follow the on screen prompts to reinstall the operating system etc.
If this does not work then you have hardware failure of some kind, and need to have someone local look at it, and figure it out from there.

Acer aspire 3690-2900


tried to remove the harddrive and boot and press f2.
if this is working, it's look like your harddrive is dead.

but if this isnot working (still same problem), remove the dvd, wireless card (from the back of the unit) and try again.
if still not working, Motherboard is bad.

My Acer Aspire 3000 has a blank screen


I suggest you check the settings of your bios. Normally this happens if your Hard drive is unreadable. Change the settings of the boot function to first boot on Hard disk and try to disable all other bootable hardwares like CD or network card.


Hope this helps.
