How do I get into safemode on my acer aspire desktop


1 Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time. 2 During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup." 3 Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears. If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2. 4 Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard. 5 Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection. The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

Hi, I hope you can help as Acer can't!! I have an Acer Veriton M221 about 15 months old and recently on boot up I get error message Case Opened press F1 to continue or Del to enter Bios. I have not...


Have you tried this:

1) Reboot your computer and Enter Setup.
2) Click on the tab labeled PC Health Status.
3) Find the feature labeled Chassis Intrusion Detect, and change the status to RESET
4) Press the Esc key to access the main menu and then use the arrow keys to choose Save & Exit from the menu.
Do NOT use the F10 key. If you use F10 key to Save & Exit, it does not properly reset this feature!!!!
If you wish to set the Chassis Intrusion Detect feature so it never generates a warning message at boot, follow these instructions
A) Reboot your computer a 2nd time and Enter Setup.
B) Click on the tab labeled PC Health Status again..
C) Find the feature labeled Chassis Intrusion Detect, and this time change the status to DISABLED
D) Press the Esc key to access the main menu and then use the arrow keys to choose Save & Exit from the menu.
Do NOT use the F10 key. If you use F10 key to Save & Exit, it does not properly reset this feature!!!!

How do i reset my acer laptop


On an Acer laptop the trick is to hold down the 'alt' key and repeatedly press 'F10' while booting, which will bring up the utility to reimage your disk to the factory default. You can often also do this with an Acer utility named Erecovery from windows.

How to reset the bios on an acer aspire idea 510


Insert the original "System Restore" CD/DVD into the CD/DVD drive.
Restart the computer.
Press a key to "change boot order".
Choose to boot from the CD/DVD drive.
Does your computer start to read the disk, and start to load something?

If so, then there's _nothing_ wrong with your computer that _WOULD_ be corrected by doing a "reset" of the BIOS. Put differently, try a "reset" of the BIOS *ONLY* as the _LAST_ thing that you try.

It's more likely that your 'C:' drive has a problem that prevents Windows from loading.

Take your computer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.

How can I launch Acer eRecovery Management to back up or restore my system?

Solution:
You can press <Alt+F10> or the Empowering Key to launch in a Windows environment, or press <Alt+F10> during boot up.

For the Aspire or AcerPower desktop series, an Acer eRecovery Management icon can be found on the desktop screen.


Hope it helps.
