Help Needed

[ Edited ]

Upon start up my laptop makes a continous beep noise and then does not get past the Acer logo screen. The only options it gives me is to press F2 to enter setup mode or I just have to sit and wait. The start up goes no further than this. Does anyone know what the problem/issue is and can anyone offer a solution or some much needed help.


Okay after leaving it for 5-10 minutes a blue box with "Enter Current Password" has appearead, does anyone know what this password is for/why it is asking for me it?


The laptop is an Acer Aspire One 725.
