  1. Need more info. Change cpu or ram recently? Tried the "del" key to get into the bios?
  2. This laptop is a acer 5100. I have reformatted several computers in the past,with no problems at all. I have tried F2, F8, Del,F12. when the cpu reboots, i immediately tap the F2 key to enter setup. It bypass setup and go to either login or checking disk consistency or black screen. In any of those 3 states it freezes and I have to do a hard shut down. just want to reformat to get back to original state or even remove any viruses. any help would be appreciated. Thanks
