Acer Aspire SA80 BIOS Freeze

Hello,

I have an Acer Aspire SA80.

It locks up on the ACER splash screen.

I reset the bios via the jumper on the MOBO and remove the CR2025 battery.

After a few goes I can get it to boot again.

It will run once or twice.

Then it freezes again on the Splash Screen!!

I have downloaded & successfully flashed the BIOS and have replaced the battery. Still same problem.

Im guessing its a BIOS problem & something to do with running a PATA (IDE) drive with a SATA drive together.

Please help?

Best Regards
John

How do I get into my bios when F2 won't work


Try tapping the Delete key instead.

It say here you use F2, but you have to do a complete shutdown rather than a restart. You have to keep tapping as soon as you see a logo or life!

    Can not find bios up date for Acer sa80-g97z celeron 2.8 ghz mobo E661gxm-7


    In the address bar, after launch, type information. Then select system information. Write down the bios info. Use it for a search. There is nothing about the bios on the support page for the Aspire SA80; they simply list drivers for the machine. No bios identifying information is provided for me to pursue a search. But, scurrying around, I hink the bios for the motherboard is at this address and that may be as updated as it gets. http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=523&MenuID=1&LanID=0 You will find links to the mother board manual and bios there.

    I think that is a Celeron D 336 with the motherboard manufactured by Company Elitegroup Computer Systems,ECS 661GX-M7 . The device drivers are available at http://acer.driversdown.com/acer-drivers/s_195_1.shtml

    Im looking for a free BIOS update as I have just added 1gb of ram and taken out the 512K one. I have an ACER aspire SA80 Desktop PC


    BIOS updates are not really necessary unless you're having specific problems. They can sometimes be dangerous to your sysytem to install and not really necessary just because you install new ram. If there is a bios update available for your model it will be at acer's web site. Unless you wanna start learning to fix your own computer and reinstall a lot of software I'd leave the BIOS updates to the professionals.

    Slow bios splash screen


    Hi,
    I don't fully understand why your BIOS splash screen hangs for 30 secs, but its most likely due to a change in your BIOS settings. You will find a setting in your BIOS to disable the splash screen or to alter other settings to shorten the time that your splash screen is displayed.
    Feel free to message me for any further info regarding this.
    Best wishes,

    It is on your os problem. Insert your OS installer. You don't have to install a fresh copy but you can repair your previous OS installation. Make sure you have set your boot sequence to CD, floppy and last HDD. You can now reinstall your drivers after doing that.

    If you where the CMOS battery is, there's beside it a jumper inserted in two of the 3 pins(left pin and middle pin). Remove the jumper from its original position and with it short the middle pin and right pin. This resets the CMOS ROM to its default settings minus the password. Return the jumper to its original position as before. Reboot the computer.
