Acer :: Update BIOS And Got BSOD

Sep 6, 2009

I have Acer Aspire 5315 and was running Bios v1.33. It has been running warm for sometime and thought an updated BIOS would help.

I tried the ACER site but didn't see any BIOS updates listed for XP. I have XP Pro on it now.

I followed a different link and found BIOS 1.45 so i Flashed it using WinFlash.

After it completed it shut down, i waited a couple of min. and powered back up, when i did i saw the BSOD for about 2 seconds and then goes to selective startup (Normal, Safe, Safe w/networking etc...)

I have not tried safe mode yet but in normal it just goes back to that screen again.

I saw the thread on using the FN+ESC mode but not sure if i really need to do that.

what I should do to restore it back to 1.33? I have to check my external HD but i think i still have that 1.33 version saved that i used when i did it the first time.

Acer Aspire 4755G :: BSOD So Need To Access The BIOS - F2 Is Not Working

Feb 20, 2015

How can I access the BIOS on the ACER 4755g?
 
I have tried mashing f2 a million times, but no luck.  f12, f8, ...none of these get me into the BIOS.
 
What key combo will get me into the BIOS?
 
I have BSOD and cant access Windows via Safe Mode, but only the command prompt from Windows Repair.
 
The BSOD is a 7b meaning some disk issue...tried all troubleshooting like unplugging all peripherals, removing RAM 1 board at a time, swapping RAM position....etc.

HP G7 Lockups :: BSOD After Installing Norton Update

Aug 15, 2014

Laptop experienced random and very frequent BSODs after an automatic Norton update. Tried everything but only removing Norton stopped the problem. Removed Norton several months ago without even one recurrence of the problem so reasonably certain the cause was the Norton. Myy question is what antivirus program is known to run reliably on the HP g7? Currently don't have one installed because I don't know wht will run.

Acer :: BIOS Update V1.24: 4GB RAM In 9410

Dec 13, 2008

Will the latest Vista BIOS V1.24 allow the 9410 to boot with 4GB of RAM?

Think I'm running the original V1.16 BIOS with one 2GB stick and one .5GB stick.

I'd like to run two 2GB sticks. When I try, it won't boot.

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?

May 20, 2010

I have been having some performance issues with some of my games. I tried to fix it with no success. I figured I should update my BIOS, which I haven`t since I bought my laptop.

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 :: 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 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....

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 :: 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 (So 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 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.

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)?
