    No OS after a Windows 8 reset


    HI All,


    Has anybody any suggestions for the issue I have.

    I have an Acer Aspire M7710 which I installed Windows 8 on.

    I wanted to use the reset windows option under the advanced settings option. After selecting the reset option it said it would reboot. This was about 5 hours ago and all I have had is a black screen.

    Eventually I powered off my computer after 4 hours waiting as something seemed wrong. When I powered my PC back on I get nothing, just a black screen again.

    I thought I would just boot from the Windows 8 dvd and reinstall but for some reason I can't boot from dvd anymore.

    I googled around looking for option how I could enter my bios or change the boot order for cd/dvd but I can't get any keyboard shortcuts to let me boot from dvd or enter the bios.

    Any suggestion how I can boot from dvd and reinstall?

    Regards,

    Thanks for the reply theog.

    What I eventually noticed was that the 2nd video card in my PC was the issue. I removed that and could get to the boot screen using f12.
