Help! Stuck in firmware, won't boot, won't enter bios setup
I've tried about everything but I am stuck. Fixing a friend's Acer Ferarri 4005 laptop. At first I could get into setup. I even ran Ubuntu from a CD to try to find the problem. The hard disc appeared to be fried. Got a new Hard disk, got to the windows OS cd, but the setup would not format the new disk.
Now, it does nothing. Turn it on, and it hangs on the ferarri firmware image with a prompt at the bottom saying "press f2 for setup, press f12 to enter multiboot, etc"
pressing either button does nothing, or it will change to read "please wait" but then-nothing.
Any clues? Tips? Anything?
Is this a good question?
