hi i have an acer 5100 latop i suspect the bios is at fault it wont let me enter the bios set up the keyboard doesnt respond the keypad doesnt respond i did try a usb mouse and keyboard but no joy , i suspect usbs dont work either
i have removed all power sources and reset the bios several times but no joy
The reason I asked was because, in one place (page 30) in the manual click here it says:
"The computer employs hotkeys or key combinations to access most of the computer's controls like screen brightness, volume output and the BIOS utility. To activate hotkeys, press and hold the <Fn> key before pressing the other key in the hotkey combination."
But in other place in the manual it says just to press F2, which is normal, in my experience.
you mention hotkeys i can brighten and darken the screen using fn function however i cant get into the operating system since i reset the bios (removed cmos battery)its asking me to activate windows (this is because of time and date reset)
