Specs: Linux
After Acer welcome - screen simply goes blank
I.e. no boot up taking place
Sorry I don't understand what 'Exact OS' means - Linus shown below was the default

Can you get into Safe mode?

✔ Best Answer
Turn off your laptop.

Turn it on and press Alt + F10 for Factory Recovery.

The Aspire E15 ships with Windows 8 pre-installed as far as I can gather so I don't know why yours has Linux on it.

Just so you are aware, Alt + F10 recovery process will erase all your files.

If it turns out you have Windows installed, this should help.

Put it on an USB stick & boot the comp.
If auto boot doesn't work, go into the bios & change the boot order to boot from the USB first.

Thanks for your interest - I remember when I used to be able to get into safe mode but not since I went to Windows 8. Fortunately pressing Alt & F10 before the Acer emblem appears when switching on enabled me to 'reset' so I am now sorted & very grateful for your help

Many thanks - I had to press Alt & F10 before the Acer emblem appeared to get the desired result but I was then able to chose an option to continue to Windows 8
All appears to be back as I left it !
I am really grateful for your advice
