    I have a Windows 8 tablet Acer Iconia W700(I5 Core) and i am trying to factory reset to the default settings again because of the stupid problems i am having on the tablet.

    Here is the problem i am trying to get into the BIOS which is the 1 step on the Acer website but for some bizarre reason when it is completely off i press the Windows button and the power button to get in to the BIOS as it says on the Acer Website but it keeps going to the start menu/desktop now instead of going to the BIOS. :/

    I have factory reset/hard reset on my Acer Iconia W700 a couple times and i never had this problem before, i gone in to the BIOS no problem!!!

    Can someone help me please?? Thanks!!!

    If you go into recovery it should have an option to reboot into recovery mode, where you can then apply the factory reset. I've found sometimes the factory reset will stick easier if rebooted into it, rather than doing it inside of windows.

    Where do i get in to recovery??? Not to sure I can do that because i need to use the recovery discs to do a hard reset my tablet. :(

    Do you think after i had a power surge on my USB 3.0 port couple months ago may be the reason that i can't get in to the BIOS???
