Acer V3 - 772G - 8.1 Windows, cannot find the boot (like the safe mode) settings


I can't find a way to access the startup parameters to access the option "Disable driver signature enforcement"

I used the 2 following ways:



Used a guide from Microsoft (here) and I followed all the steps but I can't find the option.

Here are the pictures:

So I don't see no option of troubleshooting... why? Should it not like this: this?


Power on the laptop, you press ALT + F10 and then follow the steps once you have selected the language and keyboard configuration:

Where are the startup options? How to start in safe mode? Should it not like this: this?


Thank you



(1) open administrator command prompt

(2) write "bcdedit/set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy" to allow the start of legacy with F8 (don't forget to change the settings after this guide)

(3) reboot and press F8

  • Error message: Windows cannot find the C:\windows\system32\drivers\prdmgr.exe file to start Windows XP.

    Original title: can't end file message system 32 drivers prdmgr.exe.

    Under windows XP when I boot, I get a message: windows cannot find the file: c:\windows\system32\drivers\prdmgr.exe and I already made a ststem restore and still get this message.

    Turn off System Restore. Use ccleaner and then go to tools/startup. Select it and click on delete. Are you sure its not the windows folder drivers? If its in the windows folder, is a worm/trojan. Looks like it belongs to the trojan.agent so sound in the drivers folder

    Use ccleaner, and then click run cleaner. First close the browsers

  • Windows cannot find the program to open the exe file

    I did the windows repair option by restarting then pressed f8 to get to come repair options. I did it to try to remove a number of problems of virus on my laptop. It seems that it has solved the problem, but now when I try to access one of my desktop icon shortcuts it indicates that windows cannot find the program to open the exe file. She does it with every shortcut. I can access the location of the program and then select open with and it will be opened in this way, but there is not and I have to select each time. Another option that works is a right-click on the icon and selecting 'start' and who will run the program properly. Other than simply double-click the icons automatically no longer works since I did this repair.

    Windows Startup Repair fixed my problem, but now my desktop icons not properly opens with double-click

  • Windows wil lnot open pictures says windows cannot find the file (photos were recorded he said before that)

    Windows will not open photos says windows cannot find the file (photos have been saved he previously said)

    Thank you


    I imagine the inconvenience that you are experiencing and will certainly help you in the right direction to solve the problem. However, I would be grateful if you could answer a few questions to refine the question in order to provide you with better assistance.

    1. Form when you try to open pictures? Is it in Photo Viewer?
    2. What type of files you are trying to open?
    3. You are able to open the photos in the Photos App?
    4. What is the brand and model of the computer?
    5. You did changes to the computer before this problem?

    I suggest you to try the steps below and see if it helps you to solve the problem.

    Method 1: Run the utility to search and index and check.

    a. press the Windows key + X and click on Control Panel.

    b. click on Troubleshooting.

    c. Select display all on the upper left corner.

    d. perform research and solving problems of indexing.

    Method 2: Restart the Windows Search service and check.

    (a) press Windows + R key and type "services.msc" and press ENTER.

    (b) locate the Windows Search service and right-click on it.

    (c) click Properties and check that the start option has been activated.

    Method 3: If the problem persists, I suggest you to run a full scan using the Microsoft Safety Scanner (MSS) to ensure that the computer is virus-free.

    The Microsoft Safety Scanner free is a downloadable security tool that allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malicious software. It works with your current antivirus software.


    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.


    Note: The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.

  • Windows cannot find the pictur error ~ 1.exe

    Windows cannot find pictur ~ 1.exe error, when you click ok then pictur ~ 2.exe cannot be found, and then click ok and imagev ~ 1.exe is not found. Happen sporatically throughout the day and the error messages inspire each other to end up with dozens of the same error message in the task bar. There is no pictur ~ 1.exe in msconfig. You need to determine how to make this error go away, or which is looking for this program, or to all the less determine where it is sought.

    Although I always think you should ask the help of expert antimalware, if you want to dig a little deeper on your own, here are 3 ideas, neither has no guarantee of success:

    1. take a look in the event viewer (start > run > eventvwr > OK) and see if error messages are displayed that give the name of the routine which tries to launch these exe files.

    2. learn to use the process monitor (and, perhaps, Process Explorer).  These are powerful tools, and the learning curve is a bit steep.  I can't help you here.  See the links in the sidebar or the other of the two pages linked above.  You can start by watching the video here.

    3. in association with the use of Process Monitor, create an exe file with the name that appears in your error message and save it in a folder that is in your path (for example, C:\Windows).  You can make a copy of an existing such as Notepad.exe exe file and rename it to picture ~ 1.exe or create an exe of your own by using a tool like ExeScript.  If you get real ambitious, you might learn a little windows script (for example, this tutorial) and have your exe file displays the name of the process that called it (again, to help you with this is beyond my skills).

    If you try one of these ideas and are able to go to the bottom of your problem, please post back with the details so that others (especially me) can learn.
