I own an Acer Aspire 3 A315-42 R7AP laptop and today my brother entered the bios to change a Function keys setting. After pressing F10 to save and restart he got the following message:
System is ready to into shipping mode
Please remove AC power
And DON'T press power button to shutdown system!
Eventually the laptop discharged, turned off and now it won't turn on any more. When I press the power button a blue LED lights up but nothing happens, like no noise, no video on screen and so on.
I googled around and I only found a post on the Acer support website with a problem similar to mine but it offers no solution. Warranty definitely expired and I can open my laptop and remove & plug the battery back in if needed, but I'm not sure if it would be of any use.
