Question about Acer Aspire One AOA110-1626 Notebook
I bought the 9 cell battery for my acer aspire one. I charged it and the light turned from orange to green after several hours (all night I think) and the next day when I went to use it, my aspire wouldn't even power on. Is there a trick to get the battery to work? The one that came with it works. I know that the aspire recognized the battery by the light indicator. What do I do?
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.
Download WIN98BOOT.ZIP and HPUSBFORMATTER from the internet normal bootable like a diskette won't work with a usb stick
I had mine 2 months it's a common problem with the notebook.
The onely thing that you have to do is download these programs with someone with a internet connection.
