What is the f2,f8, r f12 want work? only the Ctrl+ Alt+ del that wroks


F2 usually takes you to the BIOS setup screen, you need to hit the keys as soon as you power up.

F12 selects on a Dell instant boot menu to select booting from CD-ROM, USB, etc rather than the BIOS options.

F8 goes to safe mode start up for windows, this must be done before the windows logo comes up (ie when it is a black screen).

Control - Alt -Delete Keys together can be used any time, after windows boots as it tells it to re-boot the computer, back to start up.

When are turn on my laptop.. It shows only windows screen with "press f2 to change set up" and "press f12 to change your boot order" at the bottom of the screen. Later, it turns out to a blank screen.


Hi, you haven't said what operating system you have, but here are two options. Restore windows with your windows CD. Or you can boot into safe mode by pressing the Del or ESC key during initial boot, select start in safe mode, from where you can reset your operating system to an earlier time before the problem. Both of these will not loose any saved files.

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 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.
