Normally for ACER it would be theDEL OR F2 key.

Are you repeatedly tapping the key when starting the PC?

Once at the ACER logo you may see a message prompting to press a key to enter Setup

Thanks for the quick reply -
I pressed all the above keys at least 10 times after reboot - and also held them down for 5 sec's after the beep-
Their is no display on the screen - that is one of the things I want to turn on. - This is driving me nuts and of course google isnt much help - - -

Do you get any display on the screen when attempting to power on?

Check the monitor cable is securely connected.

There should be no settings that need to be changes to allow the video to work with a new PC.

Try tapping it just twice before the beep and then twice after the beep. Don't hold it
down.

I have a dell that is picky like this.
