BIOS doens't start

I've got an Acer Aspire M1100 (AMD), as the DVD unit works badly I tried to add a new one.
When I turn on the computer again it doesn't start. After several tries I got the BIOS start and there was a question about to repair windows or start in normal way. I choosed normal way and the computer turn off.

The real problem is than BIOS doen't run so I can't do anything. Is there any to do?

    Thanks both. I solved the problem.

    As leecom72 said I removed the motherboard battery but just for a while and I check, removed and plug-in again, the power connection and the memory.

    I can't be absolutely sure, but I think the problem was with one of the memory DIMMS.

Try clearing the CMOS by removing the motherboard battery for half an hour, male sure you remove the power cord from the back of the machine first

post back and let me know how you get on

    if you feel it maybe memory related, take them out out and put 1 at a time in so you can decipher which is the faulty memory chip (remember you have to turn the pc each test)

    good luck and kind regards

Why do not restored disks work for Acer Aspire M1100?


Turn off the computer Henry then turn it back on and hold down the alt key and tap F10 and make sure you remove any disks from the CD drive.
It would appear that the hard drive is having boot sector issues.

Ello. I wanted to know if there is a BIOS update for the Aspire M1100 because my BIOS dated 23/02/2008 which references are Motherboard SMBios version 2.5 Acer F690GVM Bios: Phoenix Technologies,...


The AHCI can be enabled from using the correct driver but you should have enabled it PRIOR to the OS install

Acer did not always do this but often relied on compatibility mode

The speed increase is often not that much.

The BIOS on that board can be updated but you may find that AHCI still does not work as you expect.

I have a Acer aspire desktop computer m1100 and when I bought it did not come with a recovery disk and I did not make the cd because I was unaware of how to do it. Now the computer will not boot with out a...


by default the hard drive should have a recovery partition. go to the support section of the manufactures website and you should find detailed instructions of how to boot to the partition. if that option has been corrupted, you can purchase a recovery disc directly from acer. i've ordered nearly a hundred for customers in the past and have never paid more than 20.00 for a disc or disc set.

below you will find a link that will allow you to enter your product serial number and direct you to the purchase of a factory recovery cd/dvd.

My computer acer m1100 no signal to monitor. what to do pls. help me.


Check the cable at both ends for a loose connection. Thats all sounds like it came loose. If you have a good connection at both ends than the computer video card is bad, but sounds like a loose connection.

Acer aspire wont start past boot screen


May be the hard drive is not detecting properly on the computer.
Try resetting BIOS.
If that doesnt help, try checking your hard drive on a different computer or using some 3rd party HDD checker.

Cannot update BIOS! Help!


If the web site for this motherboard does not have a bios update to run this cpu then there is no bios.
It might not support Phenom or higher

this is a link to the download and your bios is the last update
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_m5100.html

So just because some one said "update the bios" doesnt mean there is a bios that will run it , I believe that this board will handle a 6000 x2 and that is about it.
Sorry hope this clears things up for you

Got the same model. Had the same problem.
Play with the memory sticks.
Remove all but one.
Swap out memory for different memory.
Worked for me.
