He is getting the screen with del, enter , f12 so the power supply is fine it could be his bios battery that needs to be reseeated and factory default loaded. If you left it on for a while it could be in a state of sleep/hibernation and if you should it down manually you could have stopped it from resuming and thats why it wont boot now and by reseating the bios battery for a couple minutes could remove the resume from the computers memory and might fix your problem. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution. Please Help rate me if I helped you out or not I am new but a very good tech.

Is there power going to the tower? (any lights turn on)
If not, then the power supply maybe blown, they are only about £20 ($10)..

Change the f12 boot menu on an acer t180


Press F2 to enter BIOS setup at startup. You can set which devices appear in the list from the boot menu.

My Aspire M5641 Freezes at Acer Screen. It says at Bottom of Screen " DEL: Enter Setup F12 : Boot Menu". I cant do anything from here with computer. Any suggestions?


Does it say anything else? Sometimes this type of recurring message can be due to the system time not being set. Entering setup and configuring the time may work.

When its switched on it doesnt boot, just goes to the acer splash screen that says 'Del to enter setup" and "F12 for setup'. I think it was switched off with a usb memory stick 2.0 connected,...


Have you gone to 'setup' using F12?

If you can get into Setup you should be able to change boot options to boot from fixed (hard) disc. Unless the hard drive has been damaged or formatted this should work.

check your removable media disk drives and make sure that you don't have like a jump drive or CD-Rom that the computer doesn't like. If that doesn't work, enter the BIOS setup (usually F2, F12, ESC or something like that....check the bottom of the screen.) and find the Boot Order settings & move hard drive to #1

Acer Aspire T180 - Booting Problem


You can attempt to remove the bios chip and reinstall it or replace it with another. They are available. Do a google  search.  It has been my experience that if one cannot get into the bios that the Mother board is shot and I then replace it, not gambling on replacing the bios chip.

Turn power off.
Open case and check the connections to ensure they are all plugged-in. Check that all cards are neatly seated into the MB.
Sometimes the cards and connections can come loose during shipping.
After checking those things, power up and try it again.
If no-go, then press the delete key to enter setup and check what it is seeing for hard drives. Prior powerups may have blown out the drive.

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.
