I have an old Acer with Windows Vista installed. I haven't touched the thing in quite some time. I shoved it in the closet because it wasn't working and can't exactly remember WHY or WHEN it stopped working.
When the computer is powered on, it begins to boot and displays the ACER Logo. It then briefly shows some text at the top. I think it reads as follows:
"AMC1 Option ROM BIOS Revision 01.05.92 Date: 02-19-2000
Copyright © 2006-2008 Phoenix Technologies, Inc.
Port 01: WDC WD6400AAKS-00A7B2 SATA-2, Hard Disk 640 GB
Port 02: HL-DT-ST BDDVDRW GBC-H20 SATA-1, CD ROM/DVD-ROM
If you do nothing, the computer will restart within about a second and repeat this forever, unless you shut it down.
You do have the option to go the setup screen by hitting the delete button or go to the boot menu by hitting F12.
You can access the set up screen, but I can't see any reason to.
You can also access the boot menu, where I assume is where something could be done.
I think I was able to use other boot options in the past, but I'm not sure where to go from here.
Any help that anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
