ACER Laptop startup problem

  1. My ACER 5000 laptop froze while on-line so I shut off using the power button. Now it will only get as far as the Acer screen when I restart. It doesn't make it to Windows. Any suggestions?

    Can you get in via "safe mode"?

    Safe mode not an option

    Nothing works when teh ACer screen comes up. The bottom left of the screen says "Press F2 to enter setp". I tried that and the text switches to Please wait, which again, goes nowhere
