Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery The AA1 has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore. It's only meant for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.

Follow every step carefully!

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.

When powered on computer wont load and f9, tab or f2 does not access the designated system info, it remains stuck on screen


Sounds like you either have a bad hard drive or your OS became so corrupted that it won't start. Have someone save your stuff (if there's any to be saved) and reload the OS

ACER TRAVEL MATE 2480 WILL POWER ON BUT SCREEN REMAINS BLANK.


look close to the screen and see if there is a faint picture. if there is then read below for the issues and solutions that can cause this problem.

Issue 1: Lid button sticking

this is a common issue with this model that the lid button sticks closed. fiddle with it to see if it opens and the light comes on.

issue 2: Inverter for the monitor is bad

this is not to uncommon an issue when this problems shows itself. Laptops monitors light up with a fluorescent bulb. This is powered by an inverter. These can go bad and if they do the light will not turn on. you need to take this to a service station. i don't recommend trying to replace without knowledge of this. They are high powered and you can hurt yourself or damage the screen

issue 3: fluorescent bulb went bad

this is usually the least common but could have happened. usually happens when peopel spray their screen with cleaner and it drips down inside the bottom. This can be fixed by a service center but coudl get costly. best bet is buy a new screen.

HP nx7010 - Blank Screen - wont load.


This looks like it can't recognize the hard disk or it's empty - no OS. To check that it's not a hardware fault just boot from a Linux Live-CD like http://pclinuxos.com/
If the hard disk is there and with all the data apparently intact then most likely the MBR was corrupted, fix it.

When I power up laptop screen is blank


You may have a burned video adapter.

A trouble shoting setp you can try is attatching an external display and seeing if that works.
Also try the function F5 key combo. I think that is the ASUS mapping to switch display output.

Not booting, then shuts down?


I had the same problem. The computer is getting to hot. I opened the case and removed and cleaned the fan. It was full of lint thus keeping the fan from cooling.
