Press ALT+F10 repeatedly at boot.
However:
You may not be able to utilize the recovery feature, if your friend deleted the recovery partition during the XP install.
If that is the case, the only way to restore the factory image of your HDD would be by use of a Recovery CD set. You would have had the option to create this CD set when you booted your OS the first few times, or manually via the Acer portion of the Start menu. If you did not make the CDs, then you can call Acer to request them.

I have a Aspire 9500 running Windows XP. I decided to delete all the partitions and format as NTFS. Now all I get is blinking hyphen underscore top left of a black screen. I am unable to enter the BIOS...


Hi Doug,

Acers are prickly that way. Save yourself alot of really advanced disc building, call Acer, and purchase the rocovery CD's right away. You'll be glad you did.

Kind Regards,

Will these drivers work on 3680-2574


You can go here and get the drivers. Once on that page, click on the big green "driver downloads" button in the middle of the page. Select "notebook", "aspire", and "aspire 3680" as the categories expand.

That will pull up a listing of drivers for you to download.

Acer Aspire 5101 Laptop, powering but nothing else


If it won't go past the login screen, you should try restoring it from CD first, and then replacing the hard drive if that doesn't work. I don't have all the details, but from what you describe I don't agree with the motherboard diagnosis.
