Acer :: Aspire 4520 Dead BIOS Update Failure

Sep 1, 2008

Im using Acer Aspire 4520. Now my laptop have dead because im update the BIOS firmware on windows vista platform. On 8% progress its 'hang' now i'm can using my laptop.

the many solution i have try on this forum. not done.

FYI on my procedure

1- Run the Phoenix Crisis Disk -> Format the floppy procedure.
2- Open the Acer BIOS from website -> I get the Z03_3626.wph file then rename to bios.wph
3- Copy the bios.wph to Floppy drive
4- Insert the USB floppy to my laptop then remove the battery, hold the FN + ESC button, plug in power then press power button
5- I hear the floppy drive reading on 3minutes then after 3minutes the floopy drive stop and i release the holding FN + ESC button
6- waiting about 20 minutes nothing happen.

so what i want to do...? i think this is right procedure because it reading the floopy drive long about 3minutes. If i try burn the CD procedure nothing happen (can read), then try rename to .fd it not read.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Bios Update Failure

Sep 1, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 5100
AMD Turion 64x2 Mobile Technology TL-56, 1.8 GHZ
Radeon Xpress 1100 hyperMemory
1 GB DDr2

It has vista home premium preinstalled. Lately I installed Xp on it (Ive done it many times before because its faster) The only thing is that with Xp it shutsdown after some time, 'cuase of the heat. So I thought I'll update the BIOS. It went well but then IT shutsdown! I was afraid of this but it happened. Now my Lap won't boot, nothing comes up, not even a sound! The only thing that work is the dvd driver. The fan goes like it would boot but nothing. I tried to flash it via usb but didn't read the usb.

Acer :: Bios Update Failure 5633Wlmi

Nov 17, 2008

I upgraded to 4 gb and the Bios was only showing 3gb/Vista 4gb.

I updated the BIOS via bootable DOS Fdd after reading things here and knowning that it was not possible via x64 Vista.

Update finished and notebook shutdown, not restart.

Now it will not turn on.

No lights with power adapter or battery.

I have tried the "crisis" disk method. holding fn+esc.

Tried power in and holding Insert.

I've tried with and with out battery/power adapter.

Opened and bridged the clear-cmos for 30 seconds.

Reseated RAM and CPU.

Tried all of this with 1gb, 2gb 3gb and 4gb.

but alas she is still in a coma.......

I have tried Acer support for help but they want it sent to them, I want to avoid this if I can.

Can a failed BIOS really kill a notebook?

Acer :: 6530 Dead After Bad Bios Update

May 26, 2010

how to flash the bios of a Acer Aspire 6530 without being in windows.

I download the bios update and opened to see how it worked and then accidently shut the zip file that it was in and it crashed, computer froze and now it wont work!

It load the boot screen and even windows but crashes after mup.sys and brings up an error screen about problems with computer and shuts down. I have tried reinstalling windows but when i get to the hard drive section the hard drive is not there although its there in the boot screen.

I have tried re installing the bios with the phoenix recovery tool but that didnt work.

Im guessing i need the Insydeflash tool and some special file name for the bios.

Acer :: 5633, Failed BIOS Update = Dead

May 25, 2009

I have a two year old 5633WLMI (Nvidia graphics) Upgraded the RAM to 4gb only to find that 3gb was being shown in BIOS and Vista 32/64.

Downloaded the latest BIOS update from Acer, (v3.50) updated via Dos - Boot USB pen drive, haflway through updating it turned off, now DEAD, no power/lights/screen - tried silent/forced BIOS update but failed due to no power to board.

I contacted Acer, who were not that helpful to be honest, who told me to contact my local service centre (S„o Paulo, Brazil) again they were not to helpful. so I'm now sat here with an expensive paperweight.

Fairly sure the MBD has fried, so, How on earth do I get one to me to fit?
every site I've seen requires you to send the old to them but they won't ship to brazil or are incredibily expensive.

Acer :: Aspire 4520 Not Starting Properly

Nov 22, 2008

I have an Aspire 4520 laptop with Visa SP1 which will only start after the second attempt. The first try, it will get to where the little green lines run across then they stop halfway. I have to power off and start it again. It usually (but not always) takes me to a screen asking me to either Repair or Start windows normally. If I choose to repair, it does it's thing then says that the repair was unsuccessful so I've been choosing to 'Start windows normally' and its starts up ok.

Acer :: Aspire 5310 Bios Dead

Nov 14, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 5310 laptop which appears to have a dead bios and i'm hoping someone can help me bring it back to life.

Although I'm not a complete novice with computers i have always avoided messing with things like the bios etc... so i'm struggling a little on what some of you would consider basic steps.

The Laptop powers on, the fan spins for a few seconds and the hard disk light comes on..... I've followed several threads on different forums which have led me to believe that it is the bios.

If i remove the battery, press and hold the fn + Esc keys and then plug in the ac adapter, the power light flashes orange for a second. While continuing to hold fn + Esc, if i press the power button the fan spins constantly and slightly louder than before... but nothing else happens???

I've tried to follow steps to flash the bios using a usb stick and the bios versions 1.50 from the acer website but to no avail.

HP Pavilion Dv6700 OS/Software :: BIOS Update Failure

Oct 5, 2014

I have an HP Pavilion dv6700

P/N: FK125EA#B1A

Service Tag: dv6880ev 

BTW I downloaded the bios of dv6880ev. Why the heck is the laptop model dv6700 and service tag is dv6880ev?!!?!

I start the laptop up and it freezes at the HP logo screen. Only the ESC key works (Press <ESC> to enable startup message) if i press it fast enough and if i push the F10(BIOS SETUP) key it just hangs at "Please Wait"

Laptop Drivers Link

How it started: I updated the bios of my Laptop from Version F.57 to F.58(Latest). After the laptop shutdown, I immediatly turned it back on. Maybe its because i didn't give it a few seconds to power on by itself?

What I already tried:

-Removing CMOS, ram, HDD wait half an hour and power on again.
-This guide which does not work because HDD is formatted: Recovering the notebook BIOS using a key press combination
-The Phoenix tool procedure found here

How to use the HP BIOS update (uefi) utility

What I want to try but don't know how!

-Creating a new partition on the hard disk(HP_TOOLS) to trick the system that I have the old BIOS and maybe recover using the WIN+B combination?

Acer :: Aspire 5520-5865, BIOS Upgraded. Now, It's Dead

Jun 25, 2009

Yesterday, I've been told by an Acer representative that I should upgrade my BIOS as soon as I mentioned slowdown.

So I decided to upgrade with the BIOS from the site at Acer PanAm.

As soon as it said it was making a backup of the BIOS I previously had, it blacked out and turned off. Upon boot, my screen was black, my LEDs were flashing despite the only keys working were Caps and NumLock; and pressing the power button once would turn it off.

So then, as I thought Google was my friend, I searched for guides on how to do a BIOS recovery. Thing is, I don't remember my BIOS version, and I needed to go buy a USB floppy drive to do the Crisis Recovery Disk method. So I managed to buy one for $15, and tried the Fn+Esc solution correctly and endlessly with many BIOS versions, but to no avail.

Also, the laptop had to be downgraded to XP, as when it was previously a Vista with only 766MB of RAM, I couldn't do jack with it without slowing down like an elderly person on Ritalin. Maybe this has something to do with Acer's BIOS being Vista-only?

I suck with computers, so I dunno. I've been told I should change my BIOS chip.

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Can't Boot After Bios Update Failure

Feb 22, 2013

I have an Inspiron 17R SE 7720 running Windows 7 64-bit Pro which has been working fine, but I was thinking about getting an mSata flash drive to cache the hard disk, and reading on this forum discovered that my A01 bios version wasn't up to the job, so tried to update the bios tonight.

I downloaded the 7720A12.exe from the Dell site but wanted to backup my bios first.  Again searching this forum, I saw a post that said there was a backup option when running the exe.  Wrong.

Running it from within windows it immediately said it was going to reboot (I wasn't given an option!).  My laptop powered down as if doing a restart, but immediately hung. 

There was nothing but blackness on the screen, no text, no beeps.  It appeared to be stuck in a boot cycle, as the screen back light was coming on, and off, and on, and off etc, for 10 minutes straight. 

I powered down and powered up and I get the dell logo and can enter the bios setup, but after that, no matter what I do, I get a dos based "BOOT MENU" with just these options on:

Network Boot <- does nothing except messes up the display of this menu Setup <- loads the bios settings Diagnostics <- runs a diagnostic program which tests the hardware and reports all tests pass Change boot mode setting <- does nothing except messes up the display of this menu

I can't get passed this menu.

I've tried booting from a DVD - both a Windows 7 installation disk, and the Dell recovery DVD I created when I first got the laptop, neither DVD boots, and apart from buzzing the DVD drive, don't have any effect at all. 

Both disks have been tested in another Inspiron laptop I have, and I also set the boot priority order in the bios so that DVD is the first item in the list.

I've also tried a bootable USB stick, but no joy there either.  The light on the stick shows it's being accessed, but I still end up at the Boot Menu above.

Dell :: Studio 1555 Dead After Trying To Update Bios From A8 To A9

Jan 10, 2010

Studio 1555 dead after trying to update bios from A8 to A9

So today I found that Dell had an update for the current A8 BIOS on the Studio 1555 that I bought in May of 2009. Just a quick comment, I have had nothing but problems with this laptop. I got it with VISTA 64bit, which you all know sucks balls!!!! So once Win7 came out I bought a 500gb HD and Win7 Ult. 64bit, but as I said, it doesn't seem to be just one thing, its the blue tooth, or the network card, or explorer keeps crashing and restarting by itself constantly, especially yesterday. Plus I've been trying to use this laptop as a dual boot with Ubuntu and Win 7.

So I found the BIOS update today, DL it and closed everything and then started the update. Says its going trough sectors and there are 39 of them, when it got to #20 the thing just stops, everything then freezes after trying to open a new window, ctrl-alt-delete doesn't work, nothing works. So I take the battery out and then of course I go to turn it back on and its dead or bricked or what ever you want to call a $1300 piece of on my coffee table.

So after that I found that a few other people have had the same problem and some people haven't, but I have yet to find someone who has fixed it. So I brought up the ol' Dell Chat support and of course they tell me"oh my supervisor says that your hard drive and mother board are dead now".....!!!!!! I asked how that can be with something they post and let the end user install, now my computers dead, I'm supposed to wait a few days for a tech to call me a schedule an appt. to come to my home and replace the "motherboard and hard drive" according to the chat support.

First of all I am about to smash this thing with a freaking hammer, I have been with PCs forever and when I was looking to buy a laptop, my wife said, don't buy another PC, all you do is spend days and days at your desktop when something goes wrong with windows, she of course is a MAC person and has always used them, but I said "oh no hun, this new Win7 is going to be great and Dell have great laptops" Holy on a shingle I was totally wrong and I will never buy another PC, it will be Macs from now on once I get a chance to buy a new laptop or desktop. But anyway, since Dell has about the test customer service I have ever experienced, I decided to post my conversation with the person from dell....enjoy, and by the way..... DO NOT INSTALL DELL STUDIO BIOS UPDATE A8 TO A9, YOUR COMPUTER WILL DIE.....I'm only kind of lucky since the computer is less than a year old and I have 2 years of onsite service if I need it. So anyway, here is my conversatation, take it as you will, but I would be very wary with this whole thing and Dell laptops in general, Dell, your company used to be all over the news and mags. because you were made by a smart guy who liked computers and wanted to give people what they really wanted when they needed to buy a new computer. Well I can tell you that ever since Dell came about as a company, all of that flash and glitter about their company, computers and people has faded so badly, these things might as well be sold in a vending machine, you think that when you spend $1300 you will get something really good. What a crock of crap...forget you dell, this thing is being sold ASAP after it is fixed......oh yeah heres my conversation for all you other dell studio 1555 people who need help or ammo in case their crappy customer service doesn't help you.

please for the sake of all of us, if you can and are willing, please read the doc I attached to this post which is the chat log between me and the Dell support person....we are all going to need help with this at some point if a simple BIOS update that is made to run in windows kills are computers!

HP Dv7-3021ea OS/Software :: BIOS Update Failure - Two Blinks From LEDs When Powered On

Nov 9, 2011

I have a dv7-3021ea that will not switch on after an hp update for the BIOS applied and failed.
 
When powered on, there is the two blinks from LEDs indicating BIOS corruption.
 
I have tried the WIN-B BIOS recovery but the laptop has a quick think, then powers off and reboots to two blinks so I assume the HP_TOOLS partition is not working.
 
I have downloaded the BIOS updates from hp support, both f.13 and f.12 versions but when I attempt to run these on another computer (to try and create a BIOS USB stick), I get the error "InsydeFlash can not load the driver. Please close all applications. If you are running this utility in Windows 7, please run as an administrator". I have closed all apps, am using Win7 and have run as admin, is this because the computer I am running on is not a dv7-3021ea? If so, how do I proceed to create the USB recovery media?

Acer :: Aspire 7720z - Bios Update

Apr 23, 2010

I have an Aspire 7720z. As Vista was having so many glitches, I set up a dual boot system with XP and Ubuntu 8.10 on two partitions on the same drive. Last week I upgraded Ubuntu to 9.10 but started having power problems. I read somewhere that a BIOS update would help so I flashed to v1.45. Everything is now going great with my Ubuntu OS. The problem lies in Windows. When I try to boot to XP the splash screen comes up for a couple of seconds and the the computer reboots. I used a test disk to check the drive and everything is fine. I then tried to repair the XP installation with the install disk but was told that it couldn't find an XP installation. So, for the umteenth time, I tried to re-install XP but was told that the installer couldn't locate any devices to install onto. Completely bewildering as my Ubuntu installation works perfectly.

Acer Aspire 5517 :: How To Know If Need To Update BIOS

Sep 3, 2014

My Acer Aspire 5517 Laptop is running Windows 7 X 64 with an AMD Athlon TF-20 Processor at 1.6Ghz with 2GB of physical memory. Every once in a while, and lately quit frequently, my screen goes black, and it will not boot...I have attached an exterior Monitor to it, with no success, so I assume it is not the video portion. To get it to boot I turn it off and on until it re-boots. Sometimes it reboots quickly and at other times it takes several minutes...up to 20 or 30 sometimes. I have run a disc check to see if all the  sectors are good on the hard drive. It checks out okay..I thought if the BIOS was out of date, I would update it, to  see if that work....

Acer :: Aspire 5315 Failed BIOS Update

Nov 9, 2009

I attempted to update the BIOS in my Acer Aspire 5315 laptop to no avail, the winbios program froze straight away, while erasing the BIOS I think. So since then I havn't been able to start the laptop, no fans, but does blink a red LED beside the little light icon when left for longer than 10 seconds or so when you press the power button. I've tried the fn+esc method to boot it to flash the bios but nothing at all, tried it with USB and CD-ROM. I've tried removing all the hardware and starting it, I've also tried resetting the CMOS, still no luck.

I'm thinking that the red LED might be a little indicator of hope, or is it maybe the capacitor filling up

Acer Aspire V3-571G :: BIOS Update (Not For Upgrades)

Oct 9, 2014

I own an Aspire V3-571G Notebook with ArchLinux dual-booting Win8.1. When I'm starting Arch I get this (Ivybridge-/Sandybridge -related) error:

"[drm:cpt_serr_int_handler] *ERROR* PCH transcoder A FIFO underrun"

After research I think a BIOS Update should fix the problem. But in the BIOS-section there is a confusing line:
"BIOS - UEFI for Windows 8 (Not for Upgrades)"

So, does that mean:
a) not for those who had Win8/8.1 pre-installed (like me) or
b) not for those who have run an inplace upgrade of Win7 to Win8/8.1 instead of a clean install.
