Acer Aspire AM110-E1304A Vista

 pgemb20 -
Suddenly, our computer went to a black screen asking for a boot disk. I foolishly didn't back up the system. I searched on the internet and found a "fix". Restart computer, hold "alt" and continuously press the F10 key. Well, it did eventually take me to the usual Window screens and I could then use all the usual programs for about 5 minutes. Then, everything stopped responding and about one minute late, I was back at the black screen asking for the boot disk. I do appreciate any help I can get. Thank you.

Dear Sir,

If you are having this problem you will just have to change your boot priority in the BIOS settings!

Just change to boot from your hard drive on the 1st boot priority!

Save these settings and restart your computer!
Thanks for the information. The problem is that I don't know how to get to the Bio Setup Utility. Can you offer any help there?
Thanks for any help.
