What can I do other then the reboot CDs for a corrupt system file

(alt) + (F10) doesn't work and I don't see (F12) working. Holding (F8) acts as though it might work but then it says setup cannot continue because file "setupdd.sys" could not be loaded.

How do i factory reset my gateway laptop so the person im selling it to will not get any of my personal information?

Common is the same on most laptops either F10 ALT+F10 F8 Or could be F12
I give the selection since even though say for example only a Win XP F10 may work but on a Win 8 its F8. You would need to try each til one gets you to the factory reset screen. Repeatedly hit the F key before the Windows logo appears. Try holding the ALT key if just the F is not working. Sometimes it takes a few tried before it decides to work.
Once you get things reset I would log on and run disk cleanup that's included in Windows How do remove the Windows old folder This specifies Windows 7 but is the same for all since XP and even 8. this will remove all traces of any left overs that factory reset may have skipped which I found does happen.
After this it will be as if new.

To Reboot or recovery from CD/DVD problem with OS "Aser"

If you don't press the Alt+F10 key combination or use the recovery CDs, can you get into Windows? Boot with the recovery CDs in. When at the Acer logo during POST, press the F12 key. Then, select boot off CD or DVD. Alternatively, you can enter the BIOS by pressing the F2 key at the Acer logo and go to the Boot tab. There, you can set the CD/DVD drive as the first item in the boot order.
When turning your laptop on, before Windows starts booting, a splash screen appears first (usually with the logo of the manufacturer). Look on the splash screen (usually at the bottom) for a key (usually F10 or F11), assigned for System Recovery. Some manufacturer(s) (e.g. HP) place the recovery files to a hidden (mostly) partition of the hard drive, the others give a Recovery CD/DVD with the laptop.
  1. Press the start button from the start menu depending on your operating system(win 2000,xp)
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+delete combination from the keyboard.
  3. If you have a power button on your laptop keyboard,it could also be useful by pressing and hold it down for few seconds

N.B: "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" can exit you from usage and trigger a reboot
or Shutdown. Try and reboot using the operating system. Attempt to use the key combination that will allow you to exit from the operating system and restart the laptop. Be patient, as it may take some time if it has locked up. Hold down the power button. If the operating system's answer to the rebooting will not work, find and hold down the power button of the laptop. This should cause the device to shut itself off. You'll have to press the power button again to power it back on, completing the reboot.
Unplug from the wall and remove the battery. If restarting via the operating system and the power button do not work, unplug the laptop from the wall outlet, and remove the battery from the laptop. This will cause it to power off immediately. Allow time to reboot. Give the laptop time to cool down before you power it back on if you had to do this manually.A few seconds should do unless you have additional problems.

All the Best!

Ideapad Z560 neither accessing BIOS setup or is starting normally

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.

when pressing the power on key also press the F8 key a couple of times
some laptops are F10 some are F12 some are zero Keep trying the top row of keys
some laptops even require you to press Alt plus the F8/F10/F12/zero key

No recovery disks F8 gives 1 option full destructable recovery,and that dont work.

Maybe to use the recovery you need to press F12 or F10. Reguraly when you press F8 is use to: reboot, return to OS choises menu, safe mode, etc... but never to recovery option. Check the PC/Laptop owner manual. In some cases you need to press Ctrl+F12/F10 or Alt+F12/10.

Computer will not start, it turns on then a blue screen comes up and restarts

When you turn on your laptop keep pressing the F8 key to get to a boot menu, then choose safe mode and see if you can get into windows that way. If you can get into windows then go into the system tools folder and choose system restore and choose a date the last time you didn't get the blue screen of death and let the sysem reboot and see if you can get back into windows.

If you can't get into safe mode and your still getting the blue screen of death, then that means you have corrupt system files and you'll need to restore your laptop back to factory defaults with your cds if you have them.

Having problems restoring my acer 5100 notebook.need help please!

Hi there.
Log into Windows and press Acer Empowering Key to launch, you can use that utility to restore the system.
If you have a pqservice partition but alt f10 does not work there is a file called mbrwrwin.exe and rtmbr.bin which is needed to install the acer missing magic code all you have to do is type the following on a dos prompt. mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin it adds the file to a slot
Once you have done that reboot the computer and wait it takes a while to restart, it then it seems to find new hardware (dont know what it finds) then do a reboot and then you can alt f10 to your hearts content.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Won't Boot Up

When you restart your Computer, hit F11 alot until you get into the Startup Settings.

Choose Format Drive
Let it format

When you start your computer again, you will be all set. But you will lose all of your files, so be careful.

If this helps at all, please give me a FixYa. - Evolution
