Hi. When I turn in my Acer travelmate I get a padlock symbol with the word's security boot fail below. I can't get past it. Any advice appreciated

You need to enter the BIOS (probably by pressing the ESc key at power on)

Then you need to disable secure boot - in some acer machines to do this you have to first set a supervisor password then go back to the secure boot section before you can set it to disnable. F10 to save and exit

You can either make sure you have written down the password so you do not forget it or after setting secure boot to disable then go back and clear the supervisor password
