You will need to send the laptop to acer for repair service. they will re-flash the bios update to get the laptop working again.

you simply don't have the tools required to do it at home.

I have acer aspire 5500z notebook it has been shuted down during the bios update i want to repair the bios because whenever i turn it on it gave nothing but black screen any idea


Before I explain about the troubleshooting steps to resolve this issue, let me first give you a brief information about the BIOS Updates.

The BIOS Updates or any Firmware Updates are those Updates which will be installed in the Hardware chipsets.

For, example the BIOS Update will be installed in the BIOS Chipset.

It is required to extreme precaution which installing such Firmware Updates.

It is required to keep the Computer ON while performing these Updates.

If these Updates are not installed successfully or if the Computer is turned OFF during the Installation procedure, this might lead to a Hardware failure.

Hence, for such issues it would be better to get the Unit examined at the Authorized Service Center.

In this case, as the Computer was turned OFF while installing the BIOS Update, the issue might be with the BIOS Chipset.

It is required to get the Unit serviced at the Service Center.

The BIOS Chipset will be flashed to resolve this issue.

This will be done by the trained Technicians at the Service Center.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

RECOVERING GATEWAY LAPTOP WITH RESTORE DISC WE BOUGHT BUT IT FREEZES WHEN IT GETS TO THE WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION SECTION


I grabbed this from another site. It worked fantastic, give it a try and it might fix your problem, I know it helped me tones after spending nearly 2 days playing with a similar sounding problem as yours.

URL: http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/582490-freezing-during-full-system-restore.html


Gateway Laptop Freezes during System Restore
Had the same problem, turns out it's a well known issue to Gateway and Microsoft it's due to "SpeedStep" and it must be disabled. Here's the chat log with Gateway tech support:

do these steps to disable SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility and then run System Restore again on your computer.
1. Turn on the computer and begin pressing the F2 key in one-second intervals. If you perform this step correctly, you see the BIOS Setup Utility menu. If Windows loads normally, repeat this step.

2. In the BIOS Setup Utility, press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced menu.

3. On the Advanced menu, change the Intel SpeedStep setting from Enabled to Disabled.

4. Press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu.

5. On the Exit menu, select Save Changes and Exit

6. Restart the computer and run System Restore.

7. After completing the restore, download and install the Critical Update for Windows XP (KB885626) package from the Microsoft Web site.

8. Once the KB885626 package is installed, re-enable Intel SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility.

Myself...I am not going to turn SpeedStep back on it caused me enough time and hassle that I don't want to take a chance that it will screw something else up.
Hope that helps anybody that finds this issue too. I got here by Googling but didn't find a fix anywhere on the net until I chatted w/ Gateway. And if the Laptop was not under warranty, they wouldn't have talked to me. Sad that it's a well know issues and one cannot even search their site for "a known issue"
Good Luck!

Where can I find info to setup bios. also how do I upgrade bios


Hi,
For this you need to know the exact model of your motherboard. Your current BIOS firmware version can be seen in the BIOS setup window itself ( Press DEL key during your system startup to enter into BIOS screen)
Your motherboard should have Flash BIOS so as to upgrade its firmware. All latest motherboards will have this type only. Goto your motherboard manufacturer website and search for latest BIOS firmware for your exact model. There itself you can find the utility required for BIOS. download that utility and using which you can update your firmware. Please do update your BIOS only if it is required.
I hopt his is helpful to you

Our computer is telling us we need to update the BIOS computer shuts itself off


All BIOS components are serviceable via a firmware upgrade that is known as "flashing" this process is called "updating the BIOS". The process itself is fragile since any power fluctuation during a flash may irrevocably corrupt a BIOS' firmware. Great care will need to be taken in order to safely accomplish this.

This guide will help you flash your BIOS by taking precautions and walking you through each step. Not all computers will have the same BIOS manufacturer, let alone the same process, but many have similar steps and precautions.

CPU upgrade T2400 to T7600


Hi

The BIOS needs to be updated every few years when technology changes to accommodate the operation of new parts.
The update is normally obtained from the maker of the computer, or in the case of a non-brand computer, from the maker of the motherboard or sometimes the BIOS maker itself.
The BIOS contains all the technical information about key components of the computer like disk drives, keyboards and display settings. It also keeps track of the date and time.
In recent years some computers required BIOS updates to make them better operate with plug and play features built into Windows. BIOS updates were also required to accommodate larger hard drives.
The BIOS updates are generally downloadable from your motherboard's or computer's websites. You'll have to do some detective work to figure out what brand and model of motherboard is in the system that you have to update. If you bought your PC from a small shop, a manual for the motherboard is usually included with the system's documentation.
Once downloaded to your hard drive, run the update program and you may be prompted to create a floppy disk, which can then be used to update the BIOS.
However some newer programs will do a BIOS upodate without the need to create a floppy disk. You just the run the update and the BIOS is updated after a reboot.


Good Luck
