I'm after a little help please.
I recently had an Acer Aspire V3 771 delivered for a student that I am trying to get working.
Firstly, after going through the Windows 8 installation procedure, the wireless seemd to completely fail. The FN+F3 key stroke merely switches on flight mode. Windows seems to think that there are no connections for it to find. The Acer tools pre-installed seem to think that the wireless is switched on, but again, no joy in finding a connection.
So the decision has been made to upgrade it to Windows 7.
However, no matter where I look, I can't seem to find my way into the BIOS to get it to boot from the CD to re-install windows (obviously it won't allow me to run the W7 installation from within W8)
Any ideas, musings or advice would be great please.
Thank you in advance
