Better flash the bios again, this time try a different version of the bios. but, if it wont boot from the new bios flash disk, then u just turned your computer into a paper weight.

Acer Aspire E1 531 Black screen. Power Light will flash on.


The USB drive that is being used as a Flash BIOS update must have been formatted. If not you can format the drive to a FAT32 not NTFS because it won't work. You then copy the Flash update and let it update when you start your BIOS upgrade. Once you completely allow it to upgrade then let it restart. If the laptop doesn't start up then you will need to take out the system apart and look for the BIOS chip that got updated. You need to pry it but not so hard but to take it so it can reset the system. If doing that allows the screen to come back to the original state it will be advisable to not to upgrade. For laptops its harder because you would need to open the whole system up and the BIOS could be a chip or hardwired right into the system. So make sure that updates do not damage the motherboard is very important.

I was trying to go through recovery thinking I could get more speed on laptop and I messed comp. up. Only get a blank black screen. tried powering down, rebooting, still can't get on. Help!! i was trying...


Flashing the Bios is a LAST DITCH effort to resolve Hardware issues. You should NEVER flash the bios unless you are absolutely certain it's the correct bios for your computer, also NEVER flash bios from within windows..

There may however be a solution for you, Acer laptop computers with the Pheonix BIOS sometimes has a " flashback" feature, allowing you to revert to your original Bios..

You will need to contact Acer to get a Crisis Bios recovery disk from them. Or ask for further information on how exactly to recover from a bad bios flash.

How can i update bios of asrock 775vm800. i have downloaded latest file but can't find flash utility on asrock website. ?


before updating your bios make sure there's a valid reason for it... in other words?
1. have you tried other solutions to the problems you may be having
2. is there something in the updated bios that you currenlty need?
3. is there something actually working poorly on your corrent motherboard or built in controlers, sound, usb devices, network controller etc..

when updating the bios there's a rule of thumb that says "if it's not broken don't fix it".. as it may create real problems you may not be able to revert back.

as per installation.. the package with the bios update is an executable file (???.exe) that may come prepackaged in a compressed file (???.rar)... download the file and then use WINRAR or WINZIP a program to unpack the ???.rar file for you to access you exectable file (???.exe) inside the .rar file.

hope it works and good luck..
make sure to back up your data as who knows what may happen...
also.. make sure your computer is not shutdown while your updating/flashing the bios.. this may mess up the board completely!
