Acer Aspire 4551G :: Won't Boot - Fan Start But Will Stop Eventually

Feb 11, 2015

When I try to turn it on I'll just get a black screen. The fan will start but will stop eventually. When I try to hard reset it it won't turn off the fan will just start again. I have to plug out the AC so I can be able to power it again. And also last thing I remember is that the clock is not always on sync whenever I start it.

Acer :: Bad BIOS Flash On Aspire 5315

May 21, 2008

Second time this has happened. I've downloaded the BIOS update from Acer's website.

Closed all programs, disabled the antivirus and went to flash it. Right after clicking start I get a Verify Error and the sytem freezes and is a dead unit. First time this happened they tried to tell me it was something like $150 to fix even though I did everything right. Now I went to do it again, same thing. Now Acer is telling me it will cost $450 to fix it. It's only 3 months old. They are also saying they are not responsible for anything downloaded from their web site.

So, couple questions. Has anyone successfully flashed their BIOS to 1.34? Does anyone know where you can buy motherboards cheap?

Acer Aspire 5754 :: How To Flash BIOS When Getting Black Screen

Mar 7, 2015

I attempted to update my bios for my Acer Aspire 5745 notebook and chose the wrong file.  The computer is giving me a black screen now. When I push the start button the lights come on the fan blows and thats all. I found a few sits on line giving me the procedure to flash an aspire one system. Here is the steps I took to do so to no avail.
1. When to the acer site and put the SNID number to my laptop to pull up my suggested downloads for my system.
2. I downloaded the file to my working computer.
3. I extracted the file and opened the file that said DOS.
4. I renamed the file zg5ia32.fd
5. checked my flash drive to make sure it is set to ( FAT ).
6. Transferred the file to the flash drive.
7. Pluged in the flash drive to my dead laptop while it was pluged into a powersorce.
8. Held down the FN and ESC buttons while pushing the power buttons.
9. Released the FN and ESC buttons when I noticed the power light blinking and the flash drive light up.
10. Waited for over 15 min.  but had no success.
I also opened up the backside to the laptop and removed the little battery that was plugged it with a small white connector assuming it was the cmos battery but still nothing happened.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X230 Kingston RAM - Just Flash And BIOS Doesn't Boot After Pressing Power Button

Mar 3, 2014

I got a X230 with 4GB 1Rx8 PC3-12800S-11-12-B4 memory installed. I tried to upgrade it with two Kingston KVR1066D3S7/4G 1.5V memory sticks.
Unfortunately after installing new memory sticks (combinations don't matter) my laptop doesn't power on. After pressing the button there's just a flash and BIOS doesn't boot.
Everything is back to normal after restoring the previous RAM configuration.
Is there something wrong with my memory sticks or is it some kind of bior issue or maybe something else?

Acer Aspire R7-571 :: Locks 3 Min After Boot With BIOS 2.09

Oct 28, 2014

I recently updated my bios on my R7-571 and it has caused me great woe.  My computer will lock hard between 3 min and 3:30 min after bootup if I don't disable the WIndows Managment INstrumentation service.  THis of course caused other problems on services that depend on that like LogMeIn.  I need a solution to this.  Either a way to downgrade to an earlier bios which I don't think is possible without a version of the bios updater that will support this, or a newer bios that addresses this issue.

i was wanting to install ubunu, but i can't get into the bios without a password. someone told me it's' a administrative password. someone told me it has nothing to do with the hdd password. i need to change the order of the bootup for this to work. id rather not pay for this. i also know removing the cmos battery won't do any good either. is there a cracker or patch i can use? i was gonna download the latest software for my acer aspire m5-583p laptop but didn't because it would ask for a password.

Acer :: Why I Cant Flash BIOS In 64 Bit Windows 7

Mar 24, 2010

I downloaded the latest 3813 bios from acer europe website. I am tying to run the winflash utility but I get the following error.

Cant load driver flashnt.sys

and so on, take a look at the screenshot

I have tried running as administrator already. Same error.

I was going to try running in vista compability mode or installing xp virtual machine, but I wanted to run it by you guys first.

Updating BIOS is not something to be taken lightly. It can birck your machine easily.

SO whats going on here?

Isn't there a way to update BIOS from the bios?

My asus desktop motherboard allows you to use asus ez flash utility from within the bios and flash from usb or your hdd. I wish this was the case here but I can see nothing of the sort.

I really didnt want to flash from within windows in the first place anyway, but I saw no other way. I'm supirsed there is no readme files or anything that came along with the file. And I cant see documentation on the acer website either. Just a link to the bios zipped with no support

I am currently runing bios 3805. The one that came with my laptop. I have had it for 2 years now and Im the process of trying to upgrade some things on it.

Acer :: 4810T Won't Let Me Flash BIOS

Jan 15, 2010

I recently bought an Acer 4810T943G (su9400) with Vista.

As seems to be common with Acer notebooks, it had a freezing problem, so I decided to flash the BIOS.

The version it shipped with was v1.10. I went to the Acer website and downloaded v1.31, extracted it, and executed the program. The InsydeFlash software told me 'This BIOS is not for your notebook'.

I tried the other BIOS recommended by Acer - v1.30, and even the special editions 2.30 and 2.31, but all came up with the same message.

I then located v1.28 from somewhere else, and this flashed successfully, but I still get freezes, so I'd like to try 1.30 or 1.31.

One thing I have noticed is that on the InsydeFlash software, the BIOS ID of v1.28 is described as JM41, whereas those of v.130 and v1.31 are described as AA, and A_A forms part of the file name on the v1.31 download.

Acer :: Boot Issue On Aspire 2930 Laptop Corrupted BIOS

May 9, 2010

The strangest thing has happened to my Acer Aspire 2930 laptop today.

I shut it down last night as I normally do, then this morning I turned it on and it wouldn't boot. It goes through BIOS and startup, but then it stops. It doesn't start loading Windows XP from the hard drive, it doesn't recognise boot CDs/DVDs. When I go into the BIOS, everything looks normal except the boot portion. There are several options there, but they don't say what they normally say. For instance, the first boot device, the hard drive, is completely invisible. What I mean is that the option is just not there, but when you move the selection around with the keyboard, you can tell it's supposed to be there. Look below for a better explanation. The other options are there, but they aren't recognising the devices. I have a friend with the exact same laptop and her BIOS shows everything as it should be. She's here now and I'm typing this on her laptop because I now have two dead computers here at home.

I don't get it. It's almost like the BIOS somehow became corrupted. I didn' t even know this could happen without attempting to flash the BIOS or something, and that's not what happened. I have never flashed the BIOS on this laptop. Not only can I not figure out what happened, there doesn't seem any way to fix it. I mean, if the laptop doesn't recognise any devices to boot from... I was thinking about taking it apart and resetting the CMOS, taking out the battery. I think that's the best I can hope for at this point.

I don't have any way of cloning the BIOS from my friend's computer so I guess the next step would be to get a new BIOS chip if the CMOS reset doesn't work? The laptop is unfortunately one month over the one year warranty. I read that there's a way to get the laptop to read an external USB floppy diskette drive regardless of the status of the BIOS, you are supposed to hold the function key plus the escape key or something when you turn on the laptop a couple of times, and then it magically reads from the floppy drive. I would have to somehow buy or get a drive, but I haven't even seen such things in years. Things I can try?

Here is what my BIOS looks like compared to my friend's:


2. IDE1 :
3. USB FDD :
4. Network Boot :
5. USB HDD :

My friend's:
1. IDE0 : Hitachi HTS542525K9SA00
3. USB FDD :
4. Network Boot : Realtek Boot Agent
5. USB HDD :

As you can see, there is definitely something wrong with my BIOS and I believe that's what is causing the computer not to boot.

Acer :: Aspire Timeline 5810tz Won't Boot, Can't Access Setup Or Bios

May 7, 2010

I just got an acer aspire timeline 5810tz, which came with vista, so i was in the process of reformatting it to have XP, which i've done several times on my previous laptops. When i changed the bios to IDE, which is what i read was the correct setting (perhaps this is where my problem is?), i found that i could no longer boot the computer or access setup, bios or the boot menu. When i attempt to do any of these things, the computer just sits on the logo screen.

i'm getting fairly desperate at this point, having tried a large variety of solutions, key combos, removing the battery, etc.

Acer Aspire 5810TZ :: Flashing BIOS - Boot It Up And It Just Showing Logo

Mar 13, 2013

Flashing the bios. I have a Aspire 5810TZ. I boot it up and it just says 'acer' and won't go any further. I went to the download page for BIOS on and it has a zip file with 5 files:

JM4151135.exe FLA... GPC_V135.bin readme.txt FLASH.BAT

What do I do? I have tried copying the files to a USB and powering on with Fn-Esc held down. After letting go of the power button and holding Fn-Esc a different screen appears after 30 seconds. I let go and have given it 30 minutes but it is not doing anything. I have read online from other people the power button should be blinking. Do I need to rename one of the files.

Acer Aspire M :: Boot Configuration File Being Invalid - Cannot Access BIOS

Dec 26, 2014

My Aspire M laptop will not boot due to the 'boot configuration file being invalid', at least, this is what the 'Recovery' blue screen states.  The blue screen offers to 'Press Esc for UEFI Firmware settings, but is not responsive.  I've tried F2, F8, F10, Alt+F10, F12, Space Bar, Delete and Break to try to activate the BIOS interface, all equally unsuccessful.
I followed the instructions to purchase recovery tools from Acer, but without being able to access the BIOS to set the boot order, I've just sunk another $25 into a laptop that doesn't work. The cost of service exceeds the cost of the laptop, so I'm inclined to continue trying to repair it myself.  If it cant' be repaired, there is little chance I'll purchase a new Acer to replace it as this has been a very frustrating experience.

Acer Aspire 7740-5691 :: Boot Screen Freezes With Pixel Distortion At The Top - Reset BIOS

Oct 21, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire 7740-5691. The boot screen freezes with pixel distortion at the top. I've tried all the restore discs. I found where some people referenced a similar problem with other computers and they were fixed by resetting the bios. I can't figure out how to do that. There's no place for that in the boot settings option and there's no visible coin battery to temporarily remove to reset.

Acer Aspire One NAV50 :: Can't Find Flash Update

Oct 23, 2014

I just got a 2GB RAM for my Aspire One NAV50 but when I install it, it doesn't boot or even POST, I just get a blank black screen. Why can't I find a BIOS flash for this model? When I enter the model or SNID, the Acer website gives me nothing.
I was going to say "it won't even accept my S/N, what's on my label is less than 22 characters long (expected by the site)" but I just now (before posting this message) found I was consistently skipping a couple digits.

Acer :: (6935G) Boot Problem After Restart (cant Access Bios / Boot From Disk Etc)

Jan 9, 2010

I got this laptop a few days ago, I currently have 7 and XP installed on it and kind of have vista...(read further down).

My 7 seemed to break today after playing around with a program called powerstrip trying to get my external monitor to show the right resolution (I've realised now the cable vga was broke, but meh) but this is not the full problem, after windows 7 failed to boot I tried to boot xp after turning it off during the windows 7 splash screen and now im stuck with a dash when I turn the laptop on (I dont know if its actully related to something I've done or not).

If I turn the laptop on a flashing dash comes on in the top right, it then stops flashing and turns into a none flashing dash further up the screen and just locks here and I cant do anything at all other than trying to restart it. When I had this problem previously (at least I think this problem) on my desktop it usualy turned out to be something usb related but I have everything unplugged (all though the bluetooth adapter light is on when it is doing this) so I realy dont know what to do...............
