    Hi!

    We have been talking about your problen in two days now, me and 2 of my friends,one of my friends even called Acer, if you have a totally black screen....you wont be able to change the bios. The only thing to do is to take it to an Acer service shop, only they can (if they can, no guarantee that its possible) reset the bios and install the proper one. If the cant there is only one solution for your problem, you need a new motherboard, the one you have you toasted with the wrong bios.
    But as i said, only Acer can conclude that.



    Thats all i can do for you M8, im sorry that i coulden solve your problem.

Hi i need a expert to resolve my laptop Acer Aspire 1640z . I was upgrading my bios from 3a19 to 3A24 and now... after powering on, i hear 1 long beep and 2 short beeps and my screen is black. Nothing...


According to my troubleshooting manual of Acer Aspire 4520-Z3 about

BIOS Flash Utility:

The BIOS flash memory update is required for the following conditions:
New versions of system programs
New features or options
Restore a BIOS when it becomes corrupted.

Use the Phlash utility to update the system BIOS flash ROM.
NOTE:
If you do not have a crisis recovery diskette at hand, then you should
create a Crisis Recovery Diskette before you use the Phlash utility.
Do not install memory-related drivers (XMS, EMS, DPMI) when you use the Phlash.
Please use the AC adaptor power supply when you run the Phlash utility.
If the battery pack does not contain enough power to finish BIOS flash,
you may not boot the system because the BIOS is not completely loaded.

Follow the steps below to run the Phlash.
1. Prepare a bootable diskette.
2. Copy the flash utilities to the bootable diskette.
3. Then boot the system from the bootable diskette.

The flash utility has auto-execution function.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You need to prepare a bootable Flashdisk into dos mode
then you should search for the above mentioned crisis recovery
diskett and transfer its content to the flashdisk.

I read from another forum that for recovery of Aspire 4520 problem
can be done through pressing of the keys combination as follows:
press FN + ESC and hold them, then just hit the power on button
and release it, after awhile "the power button" should blink red,
release the keys FN+ESC and don't touch anything.

After successful of recover the bios it should restart normally.
That happen after 20-30 minutes. If it doesn't restart just repeat the
process.

Hope it helps

Problem with bio protection in acer aspire 4736 with win 7.


You may have not removed all files....I assume you used the"Uninstaller"? If so there may be files left in registry causing the prob. If you are not expert with registry editing then find someone that is and delete all files for this sofware and try a clean installation.

I have Acer Aspire 1640Z notebook and I tryed to update the bios but it was not succesfully updated and power off . when I power on its give me 1 long and 2 short beeps and blank screen . How do i reset...


The only thing you can do that I am aware of, is attempt to remove the battery and unplug the system. Then remove your CMOS battery which is usually located under the keyboard.

If you do not feel comfortable disassembeling your PC then dont do it!

But, if removing the CMOS BAttery does not work, you might be out of luck. Improper installation or updating of your BIOS in many cases will render your PC inoperable, I hate to say that, but they warn you of this before the installation starts!

Let me know what you find or if you need more assistance!

Bios reset on a acer aspire 1640z


To reset the bios in a laptop you need to unplug the power supply and remove the battery. Once you do that press and hold the power button for 45 seconds then put the battery back on and plug it in and then try starting it. Everything in the bios will be reset to the factory. 
Good Luck
