I have an Acer Aspire V3 (772G-9643 model) laptop that Acer sent me the recovery disks for. The first two steps they listed on the included sheet was to insert the disc labeled "System Disk" and then reboot and press F12 to get in the boot menu.
When F12 didn't work for me, I went into the BIOS using F2 and discovered that F12 Boot was disabled. I tried to go down using the arrow key but was unable to. All the options were greyed out, even on the other sections of the BIOS menu. System date and time were pretty much the only things not greyed out. Until I enable F12 I can't change the boot order to CD/DVD and can't start the recovery process with the Acer discs, so I'm completely stuck right now.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, it's urgent as I really need this laptop for school which has already started. Since the laptop was very expensive it's important I try to fix it rather than buy a new one.
Thank you in advance for any help
