    There is triack it might work or it might not. take out the laptop battery and unplug it from the ac hold the power button for 30 seconds then find the Cmos battery on the motherboard unplug it for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. it should clear the bios to rest to the config it was at before. if this dont work let me know and i might able to help you. this is the step i would try first.

    good luck,,

    but if the BIOS is corrupted, it won't boot no matter what you remove...

    if the FN+ESC thing doesn't start the bios recovery (you still wont see anything on the screen even if it is working) then you will most likely have to send the laptop to acer to be repaired under warranty

    just wondering with the fn+esc mode, i press both in the same time pluged the ac and the pressed the power button (still keeping the button pressed) and nothing
    Now my question is should i still keep the buttons pressed even if nothing heapens cause i read somewhere that may even 5 minutes it takes the process but in all cases the fan started mine does'nt start only the network lan cable led!!
