    Windows 10 boot gives me a black screen & 'Press [del] to enter setup'

    Hi. I'm running an Acer Aspire upgraded from Windows 8 to 10. If I just leave the screen with the subject content (above) I eventually get to logon to the computer; if I press [del] I get to the BIOS. I ran Belarc Advisor and got 'Boot Mode: UEFI (please run as administrator to see Secure Boot status)' I don't know what to do to boot to where I'm prompted to enter the password and logon to the desktop.

    Your hard disk must be set as the primary boot device. Not sure how it's set in the Acer BIOS, but most will say, Windows Boot Manager, so that must be the primary.

    Maybe someone else may know around the Acer bios

    Go into the BIOS and select the option to
    Restore Defaults

    To restore your BIOS to the default settings..
