How can i get update for Bios


Hi there.

You can download the BIOS update from the Acer website here:
http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=25&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&CountryISOCtxParam=US&ctx1g.c2att92=453&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=2054404012

Just select your make and model, then underneath that, select your Operating System. Then just click on the BIOS tab, then the orange icon to the left of the BIOS file.

Hope that helps.

Acer Aspire 1800 not booting!


Did you make a backup of your original BIOS before flashing? If not you'll need to download the BIOS and reflash again. If you did then put your original BIOS back on the chip. This is definitely a BIOS problem. Worst case is you may have to purchase the BIOS from Acer or I've seen some 3rd party BIOS providers. I did not find the BIOS for the model you specified at the Acer site but I did find it at an English site: http://bios-repair.co.uk/ref/macercr.htm. It's L12 about $15.00? Good Luck

Boot problem


There are three possible options ranging from free (if you are not afraid to open your laptop, locate and remove the bios battery) to $170 (for a new hard drive and a cloning kit).

Option 1: Here is a copy of an email from Acer Support:
Thank you for contacting Acer America. I apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry. In order to have the BIOS or hard disk password removed (This include any biometric security), the notebook will need to come in to our repair depot for password removal. This service is not covered by warranty and unfortunately there is no other recourse to remove a BIOS or HDD password from the notebook. The flat fee for BIOS password removal is $100.00 US dollars plus tax. If it is a BIOS or HDD password and you would like us to service it for you, please contact our telephone technical support line at 1-800-816-2237. Hours of operation are 7am-9pm CST Monday-Friday and 8am-5pm CST Saturday and Sunday, excluding holidays.

Option 2: Resetting an Acer BIOS Password Using Hardware.
If you cannot boot the Acer and don't want to send your computer back to Acer for an unknown amount of time, you can try to reset the BIOS password via hardware.
Tech FAQ Forum members have reported that they were able to remove their Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.
Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.

Option 3: Possibly resetting BIOS Password using Hard Drive Upgrade Kit and a new Hard Drive.
A colegue told me that he used a hard drive upgrade kit and during the cloning process the hard drive password was erased. He can not recall providing the password when he booted from the bootable cloning CD provided with the Kit and when he replaced the hard drive with the cloned one and botted the laptop, the hard drive password was gone! He had to go into bios to manually enter a new hard drive password.
The kit he used was about $50 - APRICORN EZ-UP-UNIVERSAL 2.5" USB 2.0 Hard Drive Upgrade Kit - Retail. He paid for a bigger hard drive separately, but he just needed bigger hard drive (and found out about the password erasure by accident).
