Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
USB ports had stopped working and I was told to reboot holding ALT and F10 to get to the usb port settings.
When I tried this it gets to the Windows screen and then freezes. I can reboot holding F2 for setp no problem although can't see anything in there that would help.
F12 works for boot menu but F8 doesn't work for safe mode so I can't get in.
One other thing I have just noticed is that the screen it gets stuck on says windows XP but I have vista installed. Not sure if it always said that or not although I assume it did.
Any help gratefully received,
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
