You should be prompted with the command key needed to enter the bios, but try F2.

If you have one of those annoying ACER splash screens on boot-up, hit esc to reveal the boot process.

Quick and dirty method: remove 1 stick of memory (if you have more than 1). Bios should detect change and ask if you want to run setup. It's worked for me in the past.

I am trying to remember what it was I think it was

ctrl+alt+shift

or

ctrl+alt+esc at bootup

one of these was the way to get my acer aspire ( 4 years ago)

are you using a wireless keyboard? I know people that can't access thier BIOS using a wireless keyboard. If not try just hitting every button until it works. Thats usually how i do it if i can't figure out how to get in, eventually I'll get the right button.
