I found a manual online but it doesn't say anything about bios. I have tried every key and key combination I can think of, and nothing. The screen was cracked so I'm using an external monitor via an hdmi cable, but that shouldn't make a difference...right? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for reading!

When you first hit the button to turn on watch the very bottom of screen carefully, the F key menu will be displayed.  It goes by very quickly "Like a Flash" you may have to boot t a time or two to catch what it shows.  Careful trying  combinations, I have a very similar Acer if I hit Control F10 the factory recovery kicks in.  Being as you inherited it you may want to do a factory reset, I had almost the same situation when I inherited my grandsons also with a broken screen.  I replace the screen only to find it had been pass worded.

Some laptops will only display the initialization screen on the internal screen.

 

Is any display at all possible on the laptop's own screen?

I am not sure Platypus is fully correct on his statement may work on some and not others, I have run a TV off my Toshiba and could the full boot process when I hit the button.  When you hit the switch do you see any on the monitor?
