acer laptop how to get into bios

There are two main ways to access the BIOS on most Acer laptops:

Method 1: Using the Function Key During Startup

  1. Power down your laptop completely. Ensure it’s not hibernating or sleeping, but fully shut down.
  2. Power on your laptop.
  3. Immediately (as soon as you see the Acer logo or hear the startup chime) press and hold the F2 key repeatedly. Timing is important here, so be ready to press the key as soon as the boot process begins.
  4. Continue holding the F2 key until the BIOS setup screen appears.

Method 2: Using the Boot Menu Options (Windows 8 or Later)

  1. Power on your laptop.
  2. Hold down the Shift key while simultaneously clicking on the Restart option from the Windows sign-in screen or Start Menu. This will reboot your computer into a special boot menu.
  3. Select “Troubleshoot” from the boot menu options.
  4. Choose “Advanced options” from the Troubleshoot menu.
  5. Click on “UEFI Firmware Settings.” You might see an option labeled “BIOS” or “System Configuration” instead.
  6. Click on “Restart” and your computer will restart again, taking you directly to the BIOS settings.

Here are some additional tips:

  • If the F2 key doesn’t work, try using the Delete key instead. In some rare cases, Acer laptops might use a different key like F10 or Insert. You can usually find the specific key mentioned in your laptop’s manual or by searching the Acer website for your model.
  • If you’re still having trouble entering the BIOS, consult your Acer laptop’s user manual for specific instructions.

I hope this helps!
