Acer V3-771 :: Cannot Get Into BIOS To Rebuild From Recovery DVD

Jan 31, 2015

My Windows 8 install got corrupted and will not boot. So I just want to get the laptop to boot onto the recovery DVD or any DVD so I can rebuild it.
 
No matter how hard I press F2 nothing happens and I keep getting "No Bootable Device, Hit any key." This just takes me into an empty boot menu! I have tried with what I know to be bootable CD/DVD in the internal and have used external DVD drives.
 
I just want to get into the setup to boot onto the DVD drive.

Acer :: 9300 Bios Recovery

May 12, 2009

Acer 9300

I was trying to play a video and the computer froze. I waited several minutes and nothing responded. I finally had to hold the power button to shut it down. Now it will not go to the bios screen and the screen shows a bit of brightening but does not go anywhere.

I've googled for a solution and there are several pieces of possible solutions I have found but as is too often the case, there were no follow up answers to make the posts helpful or, the answers came tantalizingly close like the following for a similar problem with an acer aspire 5315:

"1. first download the attached zip file and unzip it.
2. burn the extracted disc image to disc using nero.
3. place the newly burned cd into your laptop cd drive tray
4. remove the battery and power cord.
5. press and hold FN and ESC keep pressed and insert power cord and then press the power on button
6. your notebook should power up but without any display.
7. you should see the cd/dvd drive activity light blinking as it reads from the recovery disc.
8. if all is well your laptop should power itself down after about 2 minutes
9. once it has powered down remove the power cord and wait about five minutes.
10. finally insert your battery and power cord and power up your laptop in the normal way............

Dell :: HD ReBuild

Jan 10, 2009

i have an XPS 1210 with Nvidia card. i intend to bump it up to 4mg memory. it is a great laptop. Dell recently replaced under warranty the LCD screen.

i have managed to mess-up the operating system and need to rebuild the machine as the restore is corrupted. two questions -

1. is there a sticky somewhere on this forum to step me through the re-build?

2. i took title of this machine from my former employer. i have the XP disk but not the Office disk. can i get the Office disk from Dell for a small fee? i am still under warranty and have next business day support.

i can probably get the Office disk from former employer but would rather not deal with it.

Acer :: Aspire 3860 BIOS Recovery

Dec 8, 2008

I flashed the BIOS using the windows software beyond my better judgement and the install crashed. I waited 30 minutes and the system never started to flash again. I have tried a few ideas to get the BIOS to restore. I tried the FN-ESC method and the usb-Floppy tries to install the system but i am still not able to get the OLD BIOS restore.

I have the BIOS backed up on the systems hard drive but I am gonna have to remove the drive and get the backup BIOS and try to install it on the recovery disc. What are some ways to restore the BIOS the system is also out of warrenty and I payed acer support to tell me that are not able to help me.

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.

HP/Compaq :: NW9440 Battery Rebuild

Feb 20, 2010

The original battery pack on my NW9440 is getting very tired.

Before I rush out to buy a new battery pack, is this one that can readily be opened up and the Li-Ion cells replaced? The form factor suggests it has 8 AA sized cells inside - if only I can open it without destroying it, replacing the cells should be a doddle - catch is I can't work out the non-destructive way to open this.

Acer :: Crisis Recovery CD, AS5520 Failed BIOS Upgrade

Dec 30, 2009

I have an ACER Aspire 5520, (model ICW50) with AMD Turion TK55. I tried to upgrade it with the BIOS available under the model's specified page in ACER site, version 1.33 (IC50133.WPH).

Unfortunately I was naive enough to try flash32.exe, which is the windows base version of the flashing program; now I have a dead BIOS. Windows froze completely, I had to unplug and disconnect battery to have it down, and it never came up.

Then I did a lot of research and I found and browsed hundreds of pages about Crisis Recovery Mode (CRM). From all I read there are some misconceptions I want to get past:

1 - Deal with different CRM versions, which get accessed by Fn+B, or Winkey+B; on my case I have found that CRM gets accessed with Fn+Esc.
I know it, because instead of powering up and then dying in 3 or 4 seconds on an eternal loop, when I press and hold Fn+Esc and then I connect the power adapter (with battery disconnected), I get a quick orange flash under the power button. So, when I press the power button the computer keeps running, fan is running, and it is checking HD and CD-ROM drives.

2 - There is a lot of myth about the way one has to press and hold Fn+Esc. You just have to press it before you connect the power cable. As long as you get the quick orange flash under the power button, you know the PC is in CRM. I have done all the fancy combinations of holding those keys down, but it all ends up in the same. By the way, even if you connect the battery, instead of the power adapter, once you are holding Fn+Esc it gives the same result: orange flash, you are in CRM. Of course you do not want to flash it using the battery, that's why the emphasis on connecting the power adaptor instead.

3 - Most of the info I found about this matter then turns to building the Crisis Recovery Disk (a floppy) or a CR pendrive. It does not solve my problem because when in CRM, the computer completely ignores the USB ports, the 4 of them, I tried one by one, be it with 2 different kinds of USB floppy drives, or pendrives duly formatted in FAT. There is no blinking of light on either. There is no attempt at all to access any of the USB ports......................

Acer :: Bios Recovery 3810, 4810, 5810 Models

Oct 7, 2009

Few days ago I tried to update the bios and something went wrong. Now my Timeline 5810T is piece of hi-tech scrap.

I tried many ways to recover bios with Fn+Esc tricks using CD and usb flash with sort of different filenames (BIOS.WPH, jm31x64.fd, ICL50HW.fd, ...), but i'm not happy yet.

It seems, that the old finesses doesn't work with x810 Timeline series with Insyde bios inside. After many hours with uncle Google, it seems that nobody on the planet know the right way.

Dell :: Anyone Rebuild The Battery In Vostro 1500 Yet? / Questions

Feb 5, 2010

My battery in my Vostro 1500 lasts 8min running full power now so it is mostly dead. I have been unemployed for 11 months now so funds to buy a new battery are very low.

I have soldering skills and I upgraded the CPU in this thing so this should not be a problem. I just have a few questions...

Does anyone have any tricks on cracking the weld on the case? Besides scrapping away at it with a knife for 3 hours.

How much would the replacement cells be (estimate)? Has anyone done one of these batteries know what is going to be inside of mine?

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....

HP Pavilion 17 Recovery :: Bios Recovery From Legacy Csm?

Jan 28, 2015

I changed my HP to boot with legacy CSM, but I couldn't boot from the Windows 7 boot disc.  The laptop was shipped with Windows 8 configured for UEFI boot before my change.   The screen after boot is blank and now I can't even get to the bios menu. 
 
I have tried a Windows 8 USB recovery drive, but the computer doesn't seem to try to boot from flash, even with the hard drive disconnected and the CD tray open. 
 
I watched a video of a man disassembling an HP Pavilion completely down to the base plate, but I did not see a back-up or RTC battery anywhere in the computer.  If I could find the bios back-up battery for removal or reset the bios somehow with the hardware, i would do that.  I waited for 4 hours without the main battery attached without any change.  At this point I don't know if this model Pavilion even has backup battery. How to reset the bios to default UEFI setting without a bios menu? Note that pushing F2/F8/F9/F10/F11 and a whole bunch of other keys does not bring up the bios menu at boot time (like it did when it was in UEFI mode).
 
My next steps are to use the HP Recovery Media application on a 2nd computer to create 6 Window 8 DVDs and see if these will boot from the CD.  If that doesn't work, I'll contact HP support and see if they can send me a custom recovery disc. 
 
It seems strange to me that I can't even get to a bios menu in legacy mode.  Is this normal?  I suspect that my configuration change corrupted something and no booting will work any more.  If booting from disc doesn't work, I think I'm stuck with trying to drain whatever back-up power source keeps the bios in-state, however long that is.

HP/Compaq :: DV2745se BIOS Recovery

Aug 1, 2009

I had to upgrade my BIOS to the latest one but I found out that I was viewing a different model. Now when I bootup my laptop, all I see is a black screen with a flashing white line.

How can I recover from this error? I've been trying out several "Crisis Recovery Methods" but they don't work. I've used all key combos for boot-block but only Winkey+B makes three beeps. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I put the right BIOS.wph in there too. I also did a CMOS reset and nothing happened. I bought a $41.99 external usb floppy drive because of this!

HP/Compaq :: Dv6500t BIOS Recovery

Aug 14, 2009

I've been following the thread below, but so far have not found the key to recovering from a failed BIOS update on my dv6500t laptop:

CQ45- Insyde BIOS RECOVERY using a USB THUMBDRIVE

I can press Windows-B upon bootup and I hear a single beep followed by the USB floppy spinning up briefly. Note that if I turn on the computer without pressing those keys there is no activity or sound, so I think I'm on the right path towards a BIOS recovery.

The problem is (I believe), I don't know what filename the recovery process is looking for.

I've tried: BIOS.BIN, BIOS.ROM, BIOS.WPF
Also: 30CC.WPH, 30CC.BIN, 30CC.ROM, as well as 30CCF58.WPH.

I've tried this process with a USB flash drive and an SD card, but only the USB floppy drive gives me the feedback that file activity is actually happening (this means that I don't have enough disk space to try 50 copies of the same file with different name combinations).
