Hi all. I'm hoping to get some help with my laptop. I've come home from work, tried to turn my laptop on but it won't move past the "Acer explore beyond limits" screen. It doesn't even have the little loading circle. My laptop was working fine this morning so I'm not sure what's brought this on. I've tried holding shift f8, f8, shift f10 but nothing is loading up a safe mode or repair mode. I've held the power button down for 30 seconds but that hasn't done anything when starting it up again either. I'm not sure if I should leave it on the logo screen until it runs out of battery or to hold it down for 30 seconds again and try again in the morning. My model is aspire f 15, please help!!
It seems like your laptop has blocked loading on the manufacturer’s logo. I presume you cannot get to BIOS screen, right? In that case you may need to use a factory restore button combination. Please check your laptop’s manual for more information. When it comes to Acer laptop, usually you should hold the 0 button while pressing the power button to turn on the PC. Release the 0 button when you hear beeping noises. Please have in mind that using a factory reset will affect the data stored on the hard drive. Do you have valuable data in the laptop?
If you do, you may need to seek a way to back it up. The best solution may be to disconnect the hard drive and connect it in a desktop PC as a secondary storage drive. If your laptop is under warranty, you should contact the seller before opening the back of the laptop.
