Hi, a friend brought around a laptop, it's an Acer Aspire 5783Z and runs Windows 7 I think.
It attempts to boot from the ethernet (looks like this) unless I press F2 (which is meant to be the bios key) which then causes it to boot from the hard drive. The computer does not boot properly however, as it goes into windows resume loader (looks like this). On both screen, any keyboard presses do not seem to do anything. When I attempted to boot from a CD causes a black screen with a cursor and then it beeps which is high pitched and continuous.
I then removed the hard drive and then pressed F2, this causes another ethernet boot screen which then fails and does the same beeping thing.
I'm willing to provide any information you need. I'm not entirely sure what the problem is, though I think it may be hardware.
