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

Change boot cd rom bios


There are different methods for BIOS'es, but.........

Boot Order:

1) This method has it where you use the appropriate key (Down Arrow key?), and highlight the boot device you want, in the list.
Then you press the Enter key.
From there you use the appropriate Change value key, and move the boot device to the top of the Boot Order list.
(Page Up/Page Down, or +/- keys)

Then you press the Enter key again, and you are back to the main Boot Order menu.
Now press the appropriate key (Example - F6), and Save Changes.
Or there is a Y/N, or Yes/No to highlight, and then press the Enter key.

You MUST Save Changes, or it will be like you have done NOTHING at all.

2) This style has it where you highlight Boot Order, and then use the appropriate Change Value key, to move the boot order around.
For example you press the Change Value key, and after pressing enough times, the boot device you want will be at the top of the list.

The press the Enter key, and go through the procedure of Saving Changes.

The navigation guide is at the Bottom of each BIOS menu screen.
Does not state navigation guide, though.
Individual navigation comments are to the right side, for each submenu in Boot Order.

Read carefully, and see how to properly set HDD 0 / IDE 0, as the first boot device.

How to setup bios for booting form usb or sdcard


Step 1:
There are many good reasons for booting your computer from a USB drive. For instance, if you want to try out another operating system without disturbing the main hard drive on your computer, then installing the new OS on an external drive is a great way to run the system through its paces and decide whether you like it.

This approach will offer you the flexibility of being able to run both operating systems on your computer. However, before you can boot the new operating system from the USB drive, you will need to change the boot order for your computer in the system BIOS.

Connect the external USB drive or pen drive to the computer before you power it on. Press the "Delete" key as the computer performs the "Power On Self Test" (POST) to enter the BIOS area of the computer firmware. The POST performs a diagnostic of components on the motherboard and does a cursory check of the hard drive, memory and processor. The POST only lasts a few seconds; therefore, press the "Delete" key quickly. Enter the administrative BIOS password if prompted to do so. Once you enter the correct password, you will see the main BIOS screen. Use the right-arrow key to navigate to the "BOOT" menu option at the top of the screen, and press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key until the cursor is on the "Boot Device Priority" label. Hit "Enter," and press the down-arrow key again to highlight the "1st Boot Device" option. Press the "+" or "-" keys to scroll through the available boot options until the "USB Drive" or "USB-HDD0" label is the highlighted option. Press the "F10" key to save changes and exit the BIOS setup program. When the computer restarts, wait for the "press any key to boot from external drive" prompt to display, and then press any key on the keyboard to boot from the USB drive. Award or Phoenix BIOS Connect the USB drive to the computer. Wait for the POST to display on the screen, and press the "Delete" key to enter the BIOS. Enter the BIOS password if prompted to do so. Tap the right-arrow key until the cursor is over the "BOOT" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key until the highlighted cursor is on the "Removable Devices" option. Press the "+" key until the "Removable Devices" label is on the top of the boot device list. Press the "F10" key to save the changes for the boot order in the BIOS and to exit the utility. After the computer restarts, press any key on the keyboard to boot from the USB drive when prompted to do so.

Add boot option and change boot to usb


You need to change boot options in BIOS. Press required F key during boot. Look on the screen since Function keys vary with systems. In boot options make USB 1st. Save and reboot.

Note: Some systems have an boot option during startup. Thus eliminating the need for BIOS change. Again, look on the screen for F key.

When you boot your computer, you need to hit the key to get you into the bios setup. F10, F2 or Del keys are the usual ones.

Once into the bios, change the boot order to make the CD drive first, and then you will boot right to the CD.

Note, you will also have to hit a key when it starts to boot, it will say, hit a key to boot from CD.

If you miss the key to get into the bios, you have to start over again. Sometimes you have to hit the enter bios key over and over to get in there.

there should be a boot menu command at start up just like you entered the system bios, i believe the e machine boot command is F12 that will give you the opportunity to boot from what ever you want on that boot only. so in your case of course you would scroll down to cd and hit enter. press any key to boot hit any key and boot.

Follow these steps and ia sure you will be able to boot by yourself:-
1)Change the BIOS boot order so the CD or DVD drive is listed first. Some computers are already configured this way but many are not.
2)If the CD or DVD drive is not first in the boot order, your PC will start "normally" (i.e. boot from your hard drive) without even looking at what might be in your disc drive.
3)Insert your bootable CD or bootable DVD in your disc drive.
4)Restart your computer.
5)Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD or DVD... message.
6)When booting to a Windows setup CD/DVD and many other bootable discs, you may be prompted with a message to press a key to boot to the disc. To boot to the CD or DVD, you'll need to press any key on your keyboard (like the space bar) within the few seconds that the message is on the screen.
7)If you do nothing, your computer will check for boot information on the next boot device in the list in BIOS which will probably be your hard drive.
8)Some bootable CDs and DVDs do not prompt for a key press and will start immediately.
Your computer should now boot from the CD or DVD disc.
