You are fortunate that your BIOS has a built-in recovery procedure. However, you will need a working floppy drive to recover the damaged BIOS.

Do you know what BIOS microcode you're using? Specifically, do you have an Award, AMI, or Phoenix BIOS? (Or some other one?)

Award, AMI, and Phoenix all have different procedures for recovering the BIOS. Once you know which one you have, search Google for "XXXX BIOS recovery" (Where XXXX is Award, AMI, or Phoenix).

Typically, the procedure includes placing a BIOS file onto a floppy, renaming it to a specific name (like AMIBOOT.ROM) and inserting that floppy into the drive.

if the problem is still persisting
Your computer's BIOS screen can be incredibly useful when you need to make certain hardware or system configurations.
How to access the BIOS on your laptop varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and model to model.
Even though Acer laptops are created by the same manufacturer, not all models access BIOS in the same manner.
While accessing the BIOS setup screen in and of itself is not difficult all you need to do is press a key the difficulty is in figuring out which key to hit.
Restart or power on the laptop.
Hit the "Pause/Break" key the moment the Acer boot screen (not the OS start-up screen) appears.
If the OS start-up screen appears before you can hit Pause/Break, you will need to restart the laptop.
Press "F2" or "Del" to access the BIOS set-up screen.
Depending on the age of your Acer laptop, you may need to instead press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Esc" simultaneously to access BIOS.
Using the arrow keys navigate failsafe or optimized defaults press F10 to safe to cmos and exit to restart.

This is a keyboard error. Try pressing all the keys (make sure none are stuck). If this doesn't help you may need to try removing and reinstalling the keyboard (make sure the cable is inserted correctly) or you may need to replace your keyboard.

How can i reformat my laptop?


  1. First format all the other partitions in your system except the Drive in which the OS is installed.
  2. Most probably the OS drive is C: Drive.
  3. Then get an operating system CD/DVD Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7
  4. Then on start up insert the OS cd and select the option to install the OS.
  5. When you click next there will be an option to specify the Drive in which you will be installing the OS.
  6. Select the Drive in which the previous OS had been installed.
  7. Now in the next stage there will be option whether to install the OS with or without formatting Drive.
  8. Select the Format Drive Option and click Next.
  9. Congratulations you have formatted all the partitions in your System/Laptop/PC

Bios is damage please insert maintenance disk in drive and press any key when ready


If you don't have the disk you can try contacting the manufacturer, they sometimes have a copy of the Operating System disk backed up on your hard drive. If so they can tell you how to access it to restore/flash the bios.

This message is seen on the laptop screen BIOS Damaged! Serviceman: Place maintenance disk in drive and press any key when ready.


Hi,
The maintenance disk was simply a floppy with rewritten code on the first few sectors that bypassed any kind of checksum or self-diagnostic. Useful if you lost or forgot your BIOS password. Also let the tech into the bios to look at settings before replacing the chip. Back then it was cost effective. Nowadays they just replace the whole dang shebang.
Here are your main options, in order of attempt:

1. Hold down esc key when booting, see if you can get into bios. If not...
2. Remove battery and disconnect ac adapter
3. Gently disassemble case until you find a round coin-like battery
4. Go out, buy replacement battery, replace battery, then reverse step 3 and 2

If these steps fail, you've a bad BIOS chip, you could try to ...
5. ebay it.

Hope this helps!
