Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
I have an ACER ASPIRE desk top model number 590LB, it has been in storage for a while. I hooked it up and when I power it up it asks to insert the boot up floppy. Well, this is were I'm hoping you can help, I have not a clue the the floppy is! PLEASE! tell me there's a way to boot it up without it!
Two things may have happened:
The hard drive has failed, so it is trying to boot from the next available drive (floppy)
The BIOS battery went dead, and has reset to factory defaults and it trying to boot from the floppy drive.
If you can get into the bios ( hold F1+ F2+ CTRL+ ALT+ ESC after you turn it on), look for anything related to "boot" and change the boot drive order. If you find it, be sure to save the settings, then restart.
**note**, alot of the old computers have a very primative BIOS, and you may not be able to change the boot order.
Let me know if this gets you into the bios, as they changed "how" to do it over the years.
