Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Nope. F2 will take you into what is known as the "BIOS". This is an area for changing basic hardware settings, and is not for you. =-]
If you have the recovery CD, it should prompt you to press a key when you first turn the computer on with the CD already inside. That is the standard process for just about every computer, but if for some reason nothing happens (Windows just loads without any prompts beforehand), then you may need to go into the BIOS to check that the CDROM drive is enabled as a possible boot device.
If that is the case, recovering the password is a whole different story, and is sometimes almost impossible on a laptop without specialty equipment.
Start off with the recovery disc, and see if that prompts you when the system is turned on... I suspect that *it* will prompt you to press F12.
And please let us know how that goes, incase I can give other solutions. (depending on where you get stuck)
