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 5315 Recovery Failed

Mar 1, 2009

Problem-- When you Turn on my acer 5315 laptop a blank black screen comes up after the acer logo appears. If you press any key a loud beep noice sounds.

Solutions I have Tried-- Well i started with using the preloaded restore to factory defults and I got an error message at about 99 percent. The error was- Restore Failed- Reason oxd0000001d - or close to that. I figured maybe the backup partiton was screwed up so I pulled out the old recovery cd's I purchased from acer. The same thing showed up. I then figured i should call acer. I called and they told me to use the acer post disk formatter. I tried that and it still did not help the problem. I have no where else to turn so thougt maybe you guys could help.

By the way This is some of my system specs--

Acer 5315-
Hitachi 80GB hard drive-
Windows Vista Basic

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 :: 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?

HP 8710p Recovery :: Failed BIOS Update - Restarts In Endless LOOP

Mar 13, 2013

I updated my friends system to the f.20 bios - and it now comes up that the bios update did not succeed, and then it restarts.
 
This is an endless loop - which never lets me boot into windows - so I cannot go back to a previous version of the BIOS.
 
I have been reading around the forums and discovered a method to try an emergency recovery by getting the rompaq bios and holding down the Windows Key + B when I turn on the system.
 
Just bought an external USB Floppy drive to try this emergency recovery. I tried the USB - but it wouldn't work. I am getting different results here - but not what I want.
 
With the USB Floppy plugged in: When I hold down Win+B - the caps light flashes  for a lot longer now, it looks like it initializes the floppy drive (green light comes on for just a moment) - but then nothing - just flashing caps lock for a bit and then finally a restart again into the doom loop. It never appears to begin to read the floppy disk or search for a bios file.
 
What am I doing wrong? What can I try? Does the disk need to be leabeled a certain way? Does my BIOS file need to be renamed?

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....

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 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.

Acer Aspire E5-571 :: BIOS Update - Linux (Ubuntu)

Feb 4, 2015

I have an Aspire E5-571 without pre-installed OS. I don't care about Windows - I am using Linux (Ubuntu).

There are some problems reported by the Linux kernel at boot (UEFI mode) an I was hoping that a BIOS update may solve some of them (ACPI issues and unclaimed hardware). May be very well the Linux kernel but I can't exclude BIOS either.

On the Downloads page, under BIOS tab, there are four current BIOS versions with brief and strange description: versions 1.08, 1.09, 1.11 and 1.24

IF (and only if) I decide to update BIOS, which version should I use? What are the real differences between versions (Release Notes)? Except Windows 8 hacks, is there any real "improved system performance" on other OS? What is BIOS (5.2MB versions) vs. VBIOS (13MB update)?

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 5742z :: BIOS Update Black Screen

Feb 16, 2015

I've spent 3 days and countless hours trying to find the solution to a black screen after attempting to update my daughter's Acer Aspire 5742Z from the bios it had to the latest bios available on the site (1.30).  I ran the windows version from windows and I clicked thru the various dialogue windows appearing to be on its merry way.  At one point, the screen went black and after about a half hour it stayed that way so I unplugged it b/c it wasn't responding to the power button nor the ctrl-alt-delete. I've tried using a usb stick formatted to both fat and fat32 containing the dos version of the bios files and the full contents from a windows 98 startup floppy disk i dusted off from retirement.  I also tried a cdrw and cdr only containing the bios files.  In all attempts, the hdd led and either the optical drive or usb stick led blinked a little before dying out and nothing more.

(Couldn't try it with removed battery as I have to remove the whole back to remove the battery on the Z510).

Acer :: Aispire 5315- How Can I Make A Cd To Upgrade My Bios

May 18, 2009

I have a Aispire 5315. I would like to upgrade my bios in DOS to 1.33 before I install a T9300 CPU. The size of the 1.33 bios is 148,000 bytes so I can't put it on a floppy and the zip files is also bigger than 1457664 bytes.

I prefer not to upgrade in Windows although I see many using winflash. Where is this file located.
