I'm not sure why you slammed the system shut, bu if it was to do with a system performance issue, the most likely answer is that the hard disk drive is or has failed.

If running Windows XP, boot to recovery console, see if you can run chkdsk on the drive. If Vista, boot to the DVD and run repair my computer.

Most likely, if those options do not get the system to boot, a hard drive replacement may be in the cards.

Got an Acer 4050 from ebay and it goes straight to enter boot password


can you click on f12 before it goes to boot password?
The F12 Boot Menu allows you to choose which device that you would like to boot the computer's Operating System from by pressing the F12 key during the computer's Power On Self Test, or POST process. Some notebook and netbook models have the F12 Boot Menu disabled by default.
If this sounds like your problem then try this:
If this sounds like
To enable the F12 Boot Menu:


  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Press the F2 key to enter computer's BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test, or POST, process while the Acer logo is being displayed.
  3. Press the Right Arrow key to select Main
  4. Select F12 Boot Menu
  5. Press the Enter key
  6. Select Enabled
  7. Press the Enter key
  8. Press the F10 key and then press the Enter key to save the changes and restart the computer.
Note: Not all Acer notebooks or netbooks have the F12 Boot Menu feature. Computers that do not have the F12 Boot Menu feature will not be able to enable the feature within the BIOS. I hope this works for you if not, then the problem is obviously not the boot menu. Go to Acer support for more help

It wont boot, goes to black screen with whit blinking dash


Yes, this sounds like the traditional black screen issue, but it's different! This machine is a Dell Dimension 3000 with XP. System won't boot. After Blue Dell BIOS splash screen with F2 & F12 options, it just goes black. There will ultimately be a white cursor in the upper left hand corner. I can edit BIOS with F2, I can get in to the boot menu with F12, but I can't do anything after that. I can even get in to the Safe Mode menu (F8), but it never boots.

How to boot from a cd?


Its very easy to boot from a cd.

When you put a cd in sometimes the computer will ask you to press any key to boot from the cd.

You can also try:

1) When you boot the pc the manufacture Logo pops up as the first thing on the screen, when this happens press F12 for the boot menu. The boot menu will show 3 or 4 options to boot from select the cd drive and you will be good to go.

2) If you do not see the cd drive in the boot menu then when you reboot the machine at the manufacture logo screen press F2 for the setup screen go to the Boot menu/order and set your cd drive to be recognized. Once its recognized go and re do step 1.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask me.

How do I access the screen that shows BIOS options as I wish to upload UBUNTU 11.04 from a pendrive, so I want to make my first and possibly second BIOS options to be for the pendrive.


At boot time repeatedly pressing either, F2 , F12, or possibly Fn+F1 this is depending upon the bios wether it has been updated or upgraded. One of these should do the trick.....

Laptop A3 not booting up


Sounds like your hard drive is not booting and that your keyboard isn't responding to your pressing F2 and F12. If you can locate a USB external keyboard or if you have a round PS2 port for an external keyboard/mouse - plug into the laptop with that then press F12 while the computer is booting, press it a few times to be sure you get it in the buffer - then the boot manager should show up. If it does, choose to boot the Hard Drive if available - same with pressing F2 - Setup or Bios CMOS Settings should be displayed, here you can try to boot from the Hard Drive or Check to see if the hard drive is being recognized or not.

You may need a new keyboard if your laptop keyboard doesn't get you into either menu, and to either make sure your hard drive is responding and can be set to be the default boot device.
