If you leave it, does it boot after 30Seconds or so? If it does the bios is set to standard boot. Setting up fast boot will remove the F2/F12 option.

SOURCE: ACER Aspire 5570z won't start

Check your memory card, reseat or clean it with soft eraser its edge connector. But first shut it down fully, battery disconnected and no other power source connected to it before doing so.

If this does not come on test with a spare ram. Before checking on another fault.

Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows XP CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work. You can order a boot up floppy disk from here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310994 with this file, if you know how, you can use “ImageBurn” to burn the file into an ISO file which can be burned to a disk. Now make sure your computer boots to the cd rom first. If you know how to do this skip on down, if you don’t, while the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

SOURCE: when pressing my wifi on button on my acer aspire

it means that there's no wireless card installed. You need to buy one from say ebay but do make sure it has the cables with it that fit into the screen base :)
Alternatively, buy a w/l adaptor, preferably a PCMCIA card as they're harder to break as they don't protrude so much. I hope that helps :)

1. Turn the Laptop off 2. Remove the battery 3. Disconnect the AC adapter from the laptop 4. Disconnect any peripheral devices from the laptop such as printer usb cables, PCMCIA cards etc. 5. Push and hold the power button for 60 seconds then let go 6. Connect the AC adapter to your laptop 7. Push power button to turn on the laptop 8. If this resolves the issue shutdown the laptop connect the battery and turn laptop back on
If issue is not resolved restart the computer and begin tapping the F8 key repeatedly until you see a screen that gives you options to enter different modes. Highlight "Safemode" and press enter. If the computer boots completely into safemode you likely have a driver that has corrupted or a hardware device that has failed. Likely driver failures are video card drivers. Got to Device Manager and uninstall the video card driver and restart the system. You can do this with other drivers as well.

Your bios seems corrupted. You will probably need to reflash from a thumb drive which is bootable. The F2 should get you to booting screen to access the thumb drive to boot from to flash the bios.

Usually before OS boots you have to press either F2, F5,F9,F12
if neither one works try all F keys until you go to Boot selection or BIOS.

I can't see my Bios although i press f2 but still doesn't work out


Try "DEL", "ESC" or F12 depending on your computer it may be different than F2.
Pay close attention to the screen as it boots up, it will most likely state what key to press.
Timing is important too, try repeatedly pressing the key till the Bios shows up.

How do I access the screen that shows BIOS options as I wish to upload UBUNTU 11.04 from a pendrive, so I want to make my first and possibly second BIOS options to be for the pendrive.


At boot time repeatedly pressing either, F2 , F12, or possibly Fn+F1 this is depending upon the bios wether it has been updated or upgraded. One of these should do the trick.....

How do you get into the bios on a 785gt-e63 msi motherboard? read the book it said at start up press f1 did not work.


As soon as you turn on the computer start tapping (not fast, but steady) the F1 key, you could try F2, DEL, and other various keys that work on other boards.

Usually the screen will show you what to press in the corner or somewhere on the screen.

F12 for boot / F2 for BIOS / etc
Or it might say Press F1 or F2 or something to enter Set-up.

You have to catch it before the computer starts to boot into your operating system.

At this point you can push the power button for half a second and the computer should turn off instantly as you have not started booting up the computer.
Then you can try another key to enter the BIOS.

After locating the manual and skimming through it, I see that it states you need to press the DEL key to enter setup (BIOS).

Hopefully that helps.
