My computer turns on but is stuck on the acer screen del: enter setup and f12: boot menu are there but keyboard won't respond I've tried everything


First unplud everything except the monitor and keyboard from the system. This can help to narrow down the problem. If it boots after doing this then one by one plug everything back in until you find the problem device.

Also try leaving it on the Acer screen for a while to see if you eventually get an error code. You might even have to let it set there for 30 minutes or so.

My Aspire M5641 Freezes at Acer Screen. It says at Bottom of Screen " DEL: Enter Setup F12 : Boot Menu". I cant do anything from here with computer. Any suggestions?


Does it say anything else? Sometimes this type of recurring message can be due to the system time not being set. Entering setup and configuring the time may work.

When its switched on it doesnt boot, just goes to the acer splash screen that says 'Del to enter setup" and "F12 for setup'. I think it was switched off with a usb memory stick 2.0 connected,...


Have you gone to 'setup' using F12?

If you can get into Setup you should be able to change boot options to boot from fixed (hard) disc. Unless the hard drive has been damaged or formatted this should work.

My acer when it starts up it gives me the option del for Setup and F12 for Boot options. I have tried putting in my back up disc to fix it but it gives me a error.


Most likely it does not see your hard drive or the operating system is corrupt.

For boot options try the hard drive.

When turning the computer on, keep pressed the F8 key and see if it gives you the option for safe mode or last good known configuration.

Keep us posted.

Acer computer is frozen on screen which reads press f12 or del to enter setup. when computer comes on it does not beep so i cannot use keyboard all the lights on the keyboard aare off. HELP!!


From the description you are giving, it appears that the system is not detecting a bootable hard disk drive. Hold the power button on the system till it powers off. once system is off, try the following:
  1. Ensure no floppy diskette is in the A: if system has a floppy drive
  2. Disconnect all external items (Printer, scanner, network connection) leave only video and keyboard connected to system.
  3. Try powering system on again
If the system gives the same message, try rebooting and pressing F12 ONCE at the ACER screen and see if you can get a 1 time boot menu. If you can get the boot menu, select CD-ROM, and put you WINDOWS CD in the optical drive, see if system will boot to the CD. If you can, then at the first prompt, press R to enter recovery console, and see if you can run the command CHKDSK /R (then press enter)
If chkdsk runs, then reboot and see if the error has gone away. IF you cannot run CHKDSK then the hard disk drive has likely failed and will need replacement.

Wont turn on


He is getting the screen with del, enter , f12 so the power supply is fine it could be his bios battery that needs to be reseeated and factory default loaded. If you left it on for a while it could be in a state of sleep/hibernation and if you should it down manually you could have stopped it from resuming and thats why it wont boot now and by reseating the bios battery for a couple minutes could remove the resume from the computers memory and might fix your problem. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution. Please Help rate me if I helped you out or not I am new but a very good tech.

Acer Aspire T180-UB72 does not boot


I have the same model and had the same problem. Fortunately there is a simple fix - unplug all your USB devices (mouses, printers etc). It should now boot!

Assuming that fixed it, it was trying to boot from a USB drive for some unknown reason. I think it was due to the latest windows XP update. Wierd. Hit F12 next time you reboot and make sure it is booting from hard disk first.
