SOURCE: Bios update failed *flash*

You are in deep trouble

A problem with refreshing the Bios is that you can corrupt the old one and then the new one does not load leaving you stuck in limbo land

I would contact Acer support and hope that they offer a pre-programmed Bios chip to replace your corrupt one.

SOURCE: After finally getting my Acer Aspire M5641 PC to

Hello

Well, if the computer does not even boot from the recovery disc, i would suggest that you take out your drive and backup the files you want to keep and format the drive. Install windows on the clean drive and it should work perfectly again. Always remember to keep your virus protector updated. Hope this can help.

Best regards
Andrea

SOURCE: My friends Acer Aspire M5641 has a black screen

sounds like hardware. Either something on the board or the hard drive has failed. You might try putting a windows OS disk into the drive and try booting to see if it will read it and try to boot from CD. I guess it could be video card. Double check all the cables are connected.

How do i fix the black screen of ***** on my windows vista?


The problem is not the fix, the problem is finding out which problem of many possibilities is causing the the black screen.
This requires some troubleshooting.
I assume you are using a PC.
The first step is to turn on the monitor first.
Make sure the power on indicator LED on the monitor comes on.
Then boot the PC. Make sure the CPU fan comes on inside the PC.
(If you are running a laptop and the screen is always black, it is usually the flexible cable joining the screen to the main body has broken. A hardware problem)
Does anything show up on the screen?

If no, check the CPU cooler inside the PC.
If it is plugged up with dust and lint, you may have a burned out CPU that will have to be replaced. (A lack of cooling air causes the CPU to overheat and fail when the safety does not work. A common problem.)

If yes, get a Linux boot CDROM/DVD, boot on the Linux CDROM/DVD, and follow the instructions to run CLAM antivirus under Linux.
When the screen goes black during boot, and stays black, the problem is usually a "Root Kit" virus.
You can not remove these viruses with a normal Windows antivirus program. They are too deeply embedded in the system.

This is the start of the troubleshooting procedure.
You really need somebody "on-site" to troubleshoot a problem that is this complex.

Restart your computer and then press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter, your computer will boot automatically to safe mode.
If you able to start in the safe mode then Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a black Screen , especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
Update drivers for your hardware. black Screens are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including black screen.
If it doesn't helps you then simply get the system utility program like PC Fresher that will fix windows errors that cause of black screen screen

What is the error message? The CPUs will not overclock on there own, that requires configuration. Some components when not installed properly with cause the computer to boot to a black screen and the fan to speed up dramatically. I've seen memory sticks and display port cables cause this. Check all your hardware and make sure everything is seated properly.

HP 550 will not get to the log in stage


This is a known issue with Vista. Microsoft has not documented a solution but SP2 for Vista addresses this issue.

You can try running chkdisk from the repair console (insert Vista installation DVD and select repair).

If you have backup CDs or DVDs, try to restore your system.
I nothing helps, you will have to manually back-up your data and reinstall Windows.

To back-up your data you might want to remove the hard disk and connectit to another working PC as a secondary hard disk. Then simply boot up,copy your data and plug the hard disk back in.

You can download theVista SP2 from here. Also download and install SP1 before installing SP2.

Thank you.
