Today I had a electrician come to my house to fix a power point, anyways he didn't inform me that he was shutting off the power so I didn't get to shut down the pc.
Well after he left it was sitting here with the acer boot screen with the press del & press F12 thing.
Nothing works.
I saw a thread on this somewhere on this site, but have no idea what to do.
Keyboard lights are on..
Any ideas what the hell this bloke has stuffed in my pc?

Unplug from mains
Hold power button in for 30 seconds and release

plug back into mains and retry.

I had 4 Acers sent to me in the early part of this year,with exactly the same problem.

This is not normally hardware failure or software or driver conflict...it can normally be rectified by changing the mouse.

Have you changed your mouse recently ?
If so,plug in the original mouse and try to boot the pc.

If original mouse ..remove and replace.

My desktop hung on the white Acer screen after trying Parted Magic :( I couldn't believe the answer could be as simple as Fruit Bat's and thought it may just be a sarcastic remark. Well I did what he suggested and it WORKED! I was gob smacked. It just seemed so far fetched.

Thanks a gazillion FB!!!
