Acer aspire turns on but nothing on the screen


Hi;


This happened to me twice ( got two net books).


You need to follow up these steps:
Updating the BIOS will require a USB flash drive to store the BIOS information on during the update. To perform the update to the BIOS:
1.Go herehttp://support.acer.com/us/en/default.aspx and download the latest BIOS for the netbook.
2.Extract the files from the downloaded zipped BIOS file.
3.In the Dos_Flash folder, rename the BIOS file from 3310.fd to ZG5IA32.FD, in all capital letters.
4.Copy ZG5IA32.FD and Flashit.exe to the USB flash drive
5.Ensure that the AC adapter is plugged in.
6.Insert the USB flash drive into a USB port.
7.Press and Hold down the Fn and the Esc keys together and press the power button.
8.When the unit's power light comes on wait a few seconds and release the Fn and Esc keys.
9.After the keys have been released the power light will start to blink.
10.During the BIOS update process the display will be blank.
11.Let the unit run and after approximately 1 to 7 minutes, the unit should reboot and the BIOS will be updated.
If the unit fails to reboot, or the BIOS was not updated sucessfully, try the steps again. If the unit continues to fail to reboot, the unit may need service.
Good Luck

Hi,
Thank you for contacting Fixya. This is Anil.

I understand that the Netbook starts but there is not display on the screen.
It may happen due BIOS failure on the computer. Try updateing the BIOS. Updating the BIOS will require a USB flash drive to store the BIOS information on during the update. To perform the update to the BIOS:
Go http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/ and download the latest BIOS for the netbook.
Extract the files from the downloaded zipped BIOS file.
In the Dos folder, Copy Flash.Bat; Flashit.exe; Nav50.fd to the USB flash drive
Ensure that the AC adapter is plugged in.
Insert the USB flash drive into a USB port.
Press and Hold down the Fn and the Esc keys together and press the power button.
When the unit's power light comes on wait a few seconds and release the Fn and Esc keys.
After the keys have been released the power light will start to blink.
During the BIOS update process the display will be blank.
Let the unit run and after approximately 1 to 7 minutes, the unit should reboot and the BIOS will be updated.
If the unit fails to reboot, or the BIOS was not updated sucessfully, try the steps again. If the unit continues to fail to reboot, the unit may need service.

I believe the above resolution should resolve the issue, however, if the issue still persists, please contact us. We will be glad to help you.

Thank you. Have Great Day.

Battery will not charge


Power reset the unit, unplug it pop out the battery and hold the power down for a minute, put the battery and ac adapter back in and start her up, the mobo was probably still holding power when the battery died causing a "hiccup"in the system, this should resolve or at least help a little

Bios upgrade bios for aspire 5610z


If you go to the acer site there are utilities to update the bios

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/utilities.html#BIOS

Make sure 11% that you flash the correct bios as the wrong one will render it useless. Also make sure that you are plugged into the mains when doing it and pray that there isnt a power cut during the flash :)
