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.

If those CD or DVD are booting then there is no problem with your Drive, it can be becuase of windows.
now if still you have same problem then try to get one DVD Lance cleaner and try cleaning your Drive's Lance.

Boot from a cd


Go to your BIOS settings and under boot devices, get the CD/DVD option ENABLED (This may vary slightly with motherboard models, but not too much). You may also change the Boot Priority (i.e, which device is to check first for the boot.ini file) but this is not a mandatory option though.

If you have CD/DVD booting enabled in your BIOS, the next time when you place a LIVE OS CD/DVD (bootable CD/DVD) in your CD/DVD drive and make your computer restarted, you will get a message during the pre-booting phase: "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD". You should now press any key to boot from CD/DVD.

NOTE: The new motherboard models all have CD/DVD booting enabled by default.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

Trying to recover from acer restore cds but keeps coming up with the above eror number and telling me to restart computer


Hello

Can you read the that recovery disk in another computer/laptop? If yes,put the CD into the tray When you boot your system hit f12, then select your USB cdrom, and it should boot then.

If no,you have to check the BIOS settings to ensure that "CD-ROM Drive" is set as the first boot device, otherwise the PC will ignore the disc.

press F2 at the acer splash-screen during the boot process, or when you see "Press F2 to enter setup" at the bottom of the screen.

On the main BIOS screen there is a menu along the top.
Use arrow key to highlight 'BOOT' in the menu bar.

Now you see "Boot Priority Order"
Yours probably has "IDE 0" as first boot device,
and "CD/DVD as second boot device.

The first boot device (IDE 0) is already highlighted.

Press 'F6' to swap them round, so that first boot device is
"CD/DVD"

Now press 'F10'

Highlight "YES" at the prompt (may already be highlighted) and press <Enter>

PC will reboot, this time from the CD/DVD drive first.

You can leave the BIOS set like that permanently so you don't have to go through all that process again next time, just don't leave a bootable disc in the drive unless you really want to boot from it.

When I want to use an Ubuntu 8.04 live cd the screen stays black


U need to configure your computer to boot from the ubuntu cd inorder to use the live cd. For doing this you need to set your boot device priority with preference to cd drive as first boot device. You can get into the bios settings by typing delete, F2, F12 (this depends upon your motherboard model). Go through the options in the BIOS until you find an option to change the boot priority. After setting it, save and restart the system with the cd in the drive. Select the option in the cd as "Try ubuntu without changes to my computer". ENJOY :-) Don't forget to rate my solution.
