I have an Acer Veriton.  I opened the cabinet and now every time I reboot I am required to press F! to complete the start-up.  I looked at the Set Up screen and did not see where I can reset the Open Cabinet to eliminate this problem.  Can't find a way to solve this problem...HELP.

Try this, or post the model if it doesn't work:

    Restart the system. As soon as the first logo screen appears, immediately press the F2 key, or the DEL key if you have a desktop, to enter the BIOS.

    If you have selected the BIOS Security Features tab:

    Use the DOWN ARROW key to navigate to Chassis Opened Warning and press the ENTER key.
    Use the RIGHT or the LEFT ARROW key to select Disabled and press ENTER.

Tell me about it. I run into them once in a while, and can't dig through the bios to find the OFF switch, fast enough.   ; )
