Question about Acer Aspire 1640Z Notebook
Hello to all. I hope there is a ray of hope for my Acer 1640z. I downloaded the bios update for my model and made sure that it was the Intel Chipset version ZL9I3A19.WHP. The update seemed to go through without any problems until it rebooted the system. When it rebooted everything came on like it was supposed EXCEPT for the LCD. I have scoured the web for fixes and advice and have found several people who had or have the same problem. Everything I have tried has not worked. I have no floppy drive of any kind so everything I do has to be from bootable cd-rom. I have tried creating an autoexec.bat file with the command line as follows.... PHLASH16 ZL9I3A19.WHP /CC /CD /CP /QI /R /PY /SN.....and added it to a boot disc made with MagicISO, but no luck. If anyone can explain to me in any kind of detail on how to replace my BIOS under these circumstances, I would be greatly appreciative. I also tried hooking up an external monitor so I could see what was going on during the post, but all I get is a bunch of verticle lies of all colors. PLEASE HELP!!!!!! ANYBODY!!!!!
Sir bios needs to be formated ,,,,,you need to counsult a hardware tech ,,,they have a flash gun which can format the bios compltly and rebuild it ,,,,as update might have affected the video card so after formating the bios we need to chk to video and graphic card,,,,
