    try using the F8 when booting this should get you to the screen to use the last known good configuration you may have to push the key a few times at a faast rate.

How do i reset my dell latitude x12 to factory settings


Hi Steven,
Boot the computer and watch for the black boot up screen. It will only show for a few seconds but somewhere through the boot process, a line message in white text will say...either 'to enter the bios press F2' or, 'to enter Setup, press F2'.
The F buttons are on the top row of your keyboard.
So press F2 at the appropriate time and you will find yourself in the Setup area. The graphics will look cruder than usual - that is normal.
Your mouse won't work to allow you to move you around in there, so use the keyboard arrow keys to move the cursor and 'return' to open other options and follow the instructions to move left, right etc.
Look for a command 'Restore Factory Defaults and Exit?' toggle to it to highlight and Enter. Then enter a 'Y' for yes, Enter again and the PC should re-boot and be as good as it was on day one.

Cheers,

Tom

Hi When I boot it up , the acer emblem comes up then the screen goes black with a small cursor flashing in the top left hand corner


If you are having just a blingking cursor on boot up you must check if there is a disc inside the disc tray, or kindly check as well if there is a USB flash drive plug in on your computer and if there is any please remove them while your computer boots up as your computer might boot from it and it may cause just blingking cursor.

If there is no disc or USB flash drive installed, what you can try is to boot your computer in safemode and perform a system restore. Atleast restore back your computer 2 to 3 days back before this problem happen.

To perform safemode:

- turn off computer
- press the power the botton and after 2 sec tap F8 repeteadly until you see all the safemode options
- select safemode with networking/safemode use the arrow keys to highlight it then press enter
- computer will automatically boot into safemode desktop.

To perform system restore:

- click start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore
- click next then select desired date then follow the on screen instructions
- once system restore is done it will automatically restart and boot your computer in normal mode.


Cheers . . .

Video picture from the other person too small


On the Skype window after you sign in and have their picture. Move the cursor over their picture and it will give you a choice to go FULL SCREEN or a medium picture. To get out of the FULL Screen, press the Esc bitton and it will return to normal.
Hope this helps. Bud
