I have an Aspire 5515 with the black screen of Death. It is running Windows Vista. When you boot up lights come on, fan and HD are on but  no screen. I was told to re-flash bios to fix it, so I downloaded Bios from the support site.

Acer Aspire E1-522 :: Black Screen Of Death - Cannot Get Into BIOS

Sep 2, 2014

I have a relatively new Aspire E1-522.   Was in the middle of watching Netflix when it conked out.   Now, when I turn the power on very little happens...the blue light comes on, the fan comes on and the screen backlight comes on...and then goes out...and then comes on again...etc.
 
Basically, turning it on doesn't even get to the Acer logo.  Cannot get into the BIOS by any means.   In my research this sounds exactly like the Aspire One black screen of death, although I haven't found references to it with respect to the E1.
 
I think the BIOS is fried. How to re-flash it on the E1-522?  I cannot boot windows, so I can't use the self-extracting EXE.   I need to be able to flash it from the bare bones hardware like the fix for the AA1 ....

Acer :: Aspire 7551-2575 (MS2310) Black Screen Of Death - Recovery BIOS File Name?

Nov 12, 2014

One morning, laptop powers-on (Blue led on power button and on front bezel), no display, fans spin up and down, CD drive makes the usual seek sound. Attached external screen from my desktop, no display either, no POST!!. Removed HD, RAM, NIC, no change. No beeping what so ever, really looks like the notorious Acer BSOD i've read about. What I need is the EXACT name I should rename the BIOS file (JE70D118.ROM) to be able to use the Phoenix BIOS recovery function (FN+ESC+PWR) with the BIOS file on a USB key or SD card. Seems to be a national secret or something... Acer does not seem to have this documented anywhere.... including the actual BIOS recovery procedure....

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.

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.

Dell :: Black Screen Of Death!! And No Warranty...

Jul 28, 2009

Yesterday while I was on my XPS 1530 laptop, the colors on the screen turned all screwy and then it crashed to blue screen. Odd...

It happened about 5 more times until when I tried to turn on my computer, the backlight on the screen would go on, but the screen itself would remain black.

I can actually hear it booting up normally, it even makes the window log-in noise, but there is simply no image on the screen at all. I even hooked up my external monitor to my laptop, but absolutely nothing comes up on it.

Dell XPS M2010 :: Black Screen Of Death

Feb 18, 2010

Several times I have had my M2010 screen freeze and then not come up at all on a reboot.The machine is under warranty and typically they send a tech out with a motherboard which does not fix the problem.  Then the tech who pretty much knows its the video card has them send a new video card which does fix the problem and the machine works beautifully again.

However, several months later the card blows again and I have to do the whole process again which knocks out my computer usually when I need it most.  Now I keep all my data externally with exceptions of it breaking down (not how I expected it to work).

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?

Apple :: Unibody Mackbook - Black/Rainbow Screen Of Death

May 10, 2009

Well, since yesterday, my 2 month old unibody mackbook has been crashing at random. I'll be doing anything from web surfing, to just doing a time-machine back up and "whosh", the screen goes black with a 1/2" wide multicolored pixelated horizontal stripe about 1" from the top remaining.

This has happened about a dozen times, with the only option being to hold down the power button to reboot.

I went into the the nearest Apple Store to a Genius Bar appointment to see if there was anything to be done. Mind you, i also ran every known diagnostic I could get my hands upon, before I went, and everything checks out a-ok.

The Genius bar guy says it's a "known issue" with the new unibody Macs with the 9400M graphics processor. A "known issue"??? How come I have never heard about this on NBR?

I am supposed to wait until Apple issues it's firmware "fix" according the the GB guy.

Acer :: Aspire 5515 Prosessor Upgrade

Apr 13, 2009

I have an aspire 5515 it came with a amd athlon single core 2650e clocked to 1.60 ghz 3 gig of ram vista 32 bit and a built in ati radeon x1200.

ive been researching and discover that my board uses a s1 socket and that the board and the version of the bios will support a turion x2 processor ive been looking to see if anybody has done this and theres some people that claim they swap the athlon for an athlon x2 but the original processor only uses about 15 watts and the one that they claim to change was 55 watts soo i dont think thats true im looking at a turion x2 tl66 2.3 ghz running at 35 watts will this work and will the power supply handle the difference and will the temperature be ok

i want to do this for gaming will the 2650e single core at 1.60 for the turion 64 x2 2.3 will it be a worth upgrade ?

Acer :: Aspire 5515 Recovery/backup

Feb 7, 2009

I bought the Walmart special and am actually happy with it. I didn't have much money to spend and after removing all the crapplications, installing AVG etc... it's running well. If I had XP to install I would have done it from the start but I'll live. I'm even managing to run WoW with no issues after tweaking in game specs and playing in the Catalyst Control Center.

Now...my problem. I uninstalled all the Acer utilities and now eRecovery will not work for me. I'd like to back up the OS and drivers so if need be I can restore to factory or at least close. Can I do this with NTI Backup Now? or will that just back up folders and files? If not what can I use to make restore discs.

Acer :: Aspire 5515 - Processor Can Be Upgraded?

Mar 10, 2009

I have an acer aspire 5515. Great machine for me. I am interested in finding out if the processor can be upgraded. It currently has a AMD Athlon 2650e 1.6ghz in it. I have not been able to find information on the motherboard for this laptop. Acer site was not much help but I figured it was because the laptop came out around 12/09 but i dont no for sure. I happened upon the emachine site and there is one that looks exactly like it and has the same specs. So I have to wonder if this is an emachine with acer plastered all over it. Does anyone no what the motherboard model is or for sure what the highest processor i can upgrade to, if possible. I see where others say they have put higher processors in it but want to no for sure.

Dell Latitude D830 :: Screen Went Black / Num And Caps Flash And Scroll Is On Permanently

Feb 14, 2013

About a week ago, the (external) screen of my dell lattitude D830 went completely black. I hadn't got a clue wat to do, so I waited a while, and when nothing happened I turned off the computer. I've been googling for a while, and found something about POST-codes here [URL] ..... apparently the video-card doesn't work anymore (If I start the computer with FN+power, Num and Caps flash, and Scroll burns permanently). Lucky for me my Dell was old, and I had recently replaced it, but I still wanted to use my old computer for rendering etcera. Would this still be possible? I have the idea that the computer doesn't boot anymore (I can't see whether that's true, since there's no screen). Would it be possible to make it boot again, so that I can use my old Dell on a network?

Acer :: Aspire 5515 WiFi Will Not Connect To Any Internet Service

Apr 10, 2009

I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 5515 Laptop. Has a built in Wireless card. It detects the hotspots with no problem. It connects to the available networks with no problem. But it will not connect to any internet service. Strange, but that is also what trouble shooter says. Connects to network, but not to internet, thus browser cannot resolve to any URL.

I even disabled firewall to see if it would help, but it will not.

Even has issues trying to network at home using ethernet cards. Detects, but will not connect.
