    My acer aspire boots to a screen that only gives me 2 options.
    1. F4 or F12 Then loops from black screen back to the same 2 choses. F4 or F12.
    Please help!

    Can you provide a little more information?

    Which Acer Aspire model do you have?
    Which Operating System are you running? (Windows XP, Vista, 7, Linux)

    What are the F4 and F12 options designated as?

    A bit more information and we can help you diagnose and potentially solve the problem.

    Cheers

    * What about the F4 and F12 issue as per your original post?

    * As per my last post, which operating system are you using?

    A little more information will go a long way...

    Swarvey,

    Last post was not the OP!

    Antonysureshraja,

    I assume you have Windows 7 Starter as your operating system?
    This is a restriction of the OS. You'll need to upgrade to one of the other Windows 7 versions to get it to work.
    Or... use the search function of the forum and you will find this asked and answered in great detail a number of times before.

    Paul
