How to make acer travelmate6292 work?

Specs: Windows Vista
Everytime I press the power button acer logo only appears but wont push through then turn off, then the fan turns on without anything in the screen. I tried pressing f8 simultaneously or even holding it, I can't go to safe mode. I also tried pressing f2 but only ending up in PHOENIX TRUSTEDCORE(TM) SETUP UTILITY. How to make it work? Help please..

Are you tapping f8 (instead of holding or pressing it once) as it boots, because often you have to hit the sweat spot to make it work.

IF you have a cd/recovery disk, you should be able to use that, or try holding r as you start.

another posibility is to force it into repair mode, while it is on if there is an easy way to kill all power(remove battery and cord) you might be able to bump it into recovery mode. (not that it is probably not recomended.)

the PHOENIX TRUSTEDCORE(TM) SETUP UTILITY is probably the bios settings, and I think that you would have to have a password to mess in there anyways.

"wont push through then turn off, then the fan turns on"
Having a job to understand this.

Do you mean that you get the Acer logo, the fan turns on, then the computer turns off?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
