    Dear Mr. Kornho,



    My laptop is very new one , and no need to find another one newer than this , it has a very high specification and I bought it less than two years and it costs me more that 1000 $ , so I just need to know from where can I get a new motherboard similer to my old one because I think it is the only why to fix my laptop , I'm living in Baltimore , Maryland and I need someone sell me this motherboard and I can replace it by self .

    Thank u for your fast response to my request .

    Best regards to you.

    Sincerely

    Zaid K. Hindo

Wow.. that's as serious as it gets with laptops... depending how old your laptop is and if it's a few years old.. you may have to think about getting a new one as it may be as expensive (or more) to get the motherboard replacement plus the labor instead of just buying a new laptop.

at least you may still be able to get your data out of your the hard drive: get an hdd enclosure and use that hd as back up for your new laptop.

unfortanetely laptops are not as easy to work with as desktops when it comes to maintenance because most of their designs and physical technology included in them is propriatary so proper servicing it's tricky, more time consuming and therefore more expensive.

    as I said.. with motherboard issues on a laptop there are no many options:



    have try to get in contact with acer and see if that part can be ordered? (send them an email)

    http://acer.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/acer.cf...



    if acer is not able to provide you with a satisfying answer and if your're the one that's going to be working on the computer you may have to start looking for your computer on ebay and see if someone is selling this laptop for parts (unlikely) or another one close to your computer specifications that would probably be good fit even it it's not the same as the one on your computer..



    again, unfortunately when you have a motherboard issue on you computer you need to start to think about how much it would cost to get the part and have it replaced (taking in consideration not only the part itself but also shipping and other fees (if part needs to be imported) and also your time (time is taking you researching for a possible spare part plus the time it will take you to put the part in if you get find it)) at the end doing the math it may not be worth it.



    good luck anyways!, Mr Hindo ;)

Can a motherboard from another acer work to acer 3275?


I doubt it will fit inside your laptop. Laptop cases usually are designed for a particular model laptop.

Forgot the password of bios of acer aspire 5584 wxmi model: zr1


Hi,
1. Go and download the bios file - ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/asp.../bios/v1.06.zip
2. There should be a file call AG1A-106.EXE inside Alviso folder, just extract this file to the location you like.
3. In windows, use cmd (Command Prompt) to run this application.
4. The syntax should be ---- AG1A-106.EXE /ldcmos /reb -----
5. It may take 1 minute to load up, when it appears, just flash it.
6. Computer will restart after flashing and password should be cleared.
7. Don't forget to set back the BIOS settings if required.

Hope this helps!
