Acer :: BIOS Replacement Or Reset For Travelmate 2300

Jun 16, 2008

if it's possible to buy and install a replacement BIOS for an Acer Travelmate 2300 (as my 2300 died half-way through a flashing process-it will power on but there is nothing on the screen) or is the BIOS chip soldered to the motherboard and not possible (I've no technical skill at soldering).

Or is there a way to reset the BIOS? I could find nothing on the Acer website specific for this model.

Acer :: TravelMate 2300 FAT Only

Mar 8, 2009

I was given an Acer TravelMate 2300 by someone who has a new one. It came with no guarantees and no recovery CD. It had working verison of XP Pro on it through SP2. I applied SP3 and several updates. It worked good until... I noticed that the C drive was formatted FAT32. So I thought it a good idea to move it to NTFS. Without checking, I fired in "convert c: /fs:ntfs". It rebooted and after a brief look at the Windows XP splash, it goes straight to a stop code x0000024 BSOD. There was nothing on the drive except for the OS so I was felt OK withjust reinstalling from my media.

I dragged out my copy of XP pro slipstreamed with SP2. Booted from CD, went through XP's native setup and detected an "unknown" partition where C used to be. I must've really slammed it. I chose to install to the unknown partition and XP offered to format it NTFS. I chose the thorough format option but it goes only to 24% and stops. The display still shows the progress bar, blue background etc. at 24%.

Since I don't have much experience with laptops, let me ask, is it possible that this laptop/drive ONLY formats to FAT or FAT32 and won't take an NTFS volume? If it will, are there any ideas out there how to apply and NTFS format so I can get this cute little laptop back to a usable state?

Acer :: Travelmate 2450, Reset The Bios?

Oct 10, 2009

I bought a 2450 and the keyboard, touchpad and usb ports are all not working. I did some reading and someone had said that a reset could fix this problem, he said it was a problem with Acers bios. I'm trying to find where to jumper it, i read that you jumper J3 that is around the memory. I did that and don't think it reset, i figured the bios would give me a time warning or some sort of setting's warning. I thought i should see if anyone knows the procedure. Otherwise im thinking about cutting the lead to the top terminal and soldering in a jumper (which i don't want to do).

Acer :: Travelmate 370 BIOS And Password Recovery

Sep 21, 2007

Due to some mulfunctioning of my TravelMate it cannot recognize the BIOS administrator passord anymore.

how to reset it?

just working on the CMOS battery doesnt work for that password (only resets the BIOS user password).

is there any jumper or contact on the motherboard to reset?

Can I flash a BIOS and get rid of it?

Where can I find a copy of the BIOS? it seems that ACER Bios utility works under windows and requires to input the BIOS password for resetting.

Acer :: Aspire 5002 WLMi-reset BIOS Passwords

Oct 11, 2008

I recently sold my Aspire 5002 WLMi notebook to a friend who changed too many settings and mussed up the BIOS in record time.... 10 days. I got most back by using a restore point but noticed he had a BIOS password requirement for booting up. I went to change that and set the new password with blank fields....save and quit....reboot....

...and whoops. Neither does a blank field nor his old password work now. in hindsight, I recall it was odd how some of his BIOS options had been greyd out and realized he must have a supervisor and another BIOS password. Swears he doesnt remember what he did. Now, we're locked out with 3 tries and error code 00000.

I removed the CMOS battery but unlike desktops I've messed with, I cant find any jumpers or marked pads to short out. Read somewhere that Acer now uses some form of flash memory. I cant find any documentation on this and Acer hasnt answered my email. Most of their sites dont even list this version of laptop. I bought it in Amsterdam at the end of 2005 but their Netherlands site is only in Dutch, a language I cant begin to decipher.

Anyone have ideas on this or possibly a motherboard schematic with lables? I looked at lists for Acer MB's and theres not a single number printed on here that resembles those lists I found.

Acer TravelMate P453-M :: Changed BIOS Boot Settings - Black Screen

Jan 19, 2015

Laptop still under warranty. I recently had a motherboard and HDD replacement. I wanted to install Windows myself, but the BIOS was set to UEFI, and I couldn't seem to boot off of a USB drive. So I switched it to Legacy, booted from the pendrive, and installed Windows just fine.
 
For whatever reason, I went back to try and change the setting to UEFI. Now the laptop switches on, but refuses to boot. I get a black screen, with no logo or any prompt whatsoever to access the BIOS. 

I read a bit and seems I need to remove the BIOS battery, let the memory clear itself to reset BIOS settings to default, and try again? If it matters, I re-installed Windows 7 64-bit.

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.

Dell :: D510 BIOS Reset

We have two machines that are locked out and Dell is not being very helpful in the reset. Of course these machines are way out of warranty and not worth purchasing a new system board which is what Dell is now saying .....

HP Display :: Pavilion G7-2300 Notebook / Cyberlink PowerDVD No Longer Plays DVDs

Jan 19, 2015

I am having trouble playing DVD's on my HP Pavillion g7-2300 notebook.   I've had this laptop for a long time and I was able to play DVDs up until a few days ago, but today when I inserted a disc I got this message:
 
When I click on "learn more" it brings me to a webpage where there are newer versions of cyberlink media software available for purchse.  As you can see in the image there is an ad for one of the versions.
 
There was one update available for the Cyberlink PowerDVD software and I installed it.  This did not fix the issue and I am still geting the same message as above.   I also tried to play different DVDs.
 
I have PowerDVD OEM version 10.0.8.5723 and am using Windows 8.1.  I've had Windows 8.1 for many months and as I mentioned I was able to play DVD's before with this windows version. 
 
As far I as I can tell it isn't a trial version.  It's asking me to buy an upgrade not a full version so this is what leads me to believe it's not a trial version.
 
Why the sudden change? 
 
Unfortunately the Windows Media Player software on my laptop doesn't play DVDs.   I've searched for Quicktime software, but there doesn't seem to be any available for Windows 8 or 8.1.

while F arrray like f1, f2.... have to be pressed simultaneously with Function key. And I changed the default bios because I use F arrray usually.

But everytime I change laptop power from battery to adapter or adapter to battery and restart the laptop, the Bios is reset to the default.
Iupdated the lastest bios A08 and driver of the devices.
