If you have the operating system disk.try booting from it using the boot menu f11 f12 keys then do startup repair in window 8.1 of windows 10 it's much harder. try holding down the shift key while rebooting the computer try booting into safe mode, or do a system refresh from the advanced menu

SOURCE: acer 1640z boots up fine, but no post screen and bleeps

Dear all,

I also posted this one under "Notebook Bios Problems" which might not be the correct place. Anyway here it is for you to see and maybe you can learn from my experience.

-->


Have done a VISTA upgrade with Acers upgrade DVD.
It recommended to upgrade the BIOS - after doing this notebook is dead.
(1 long and 2 short beeps).
If I want to flash a new BIOS with Crisis method which BIOS should I use i.e. how do I know if I need the AT or UMA version - how to verify this on the notebook (my version is 1642 ZWLMI)?

I would very much appreciate some help on this - thank you

LATEST NEW - it WORKS AGAIN:
I was a little bit worried when I started icon_sad.gif but later I was all smiles icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

So a BIG thanks to everyone who posted possible solutions here in this forum:

1: I bought a NEC model UF0002 USB floppy Disk Drive Unit.
2: Downloaded the zip file from the ACER homepage with the BIOS
(chose the one that should be the correct version for VISTA:
It contains 2 WHP files: ZL9A3A24.WPH and ZL9I3A24.WPH as I
learned from NoClaim's post I chose the ZL9I3A24.WPH.
3: Downloaded the zip files with the Crisis recovery zip-file (See d0gi's
post: http://www.rechner.org/b1800.html ).
4: un-zipped the files
5: copies the file ZL9I3A24.WPH into the crisis directory - deleted the
BIOS.WHP that was allready there. And renamed ZL9I3A24.WPH
to BIOS.WHP.
6: ran the WINCRIS.EXE program (did an unbootable format of the floppy)
7: I now had a recovery floppy.
8: all steps above obviously done on my desktop PC.
9: removed battery from my ACER 1640Z laptop
10: unplugged powercable.
11: inserted the USB floppy in one of the USB ports on the laptop
12: pressed the <fn> and <esc> keys
13: plugged the powercord
14: Turned on the laptop
15: waited a bit - lights came on on the laptop (no beeps)
16: waited a little longer and the light on the floppy came on
17: waited still a bit longer until I could hear the floppy was working
and then I let go of the keys <fn> and <esc>
18: after a while there was no activity on the floppy any more and
shortly after the laptop shot down.
19: the laptop started up again on its own and IT WORKED
20: THE LAPTOP IS BACK AND THANKS TO ALL OF YOU I SAVED A LOT
OF MONEY icon_lol.gif

This worked for me and only cost me £5, Here is the web sit i got it from
http://www.wimsbios.com/phpBB2/topic9512.html

Hope it works for you

SOURCE: Acer Aspire One - blue screen only when try to boot

You may have to remove and reset the HDD and Memory on the unit.
Next, you will recv. the F-2 to continue or F-12 to enter setup.
Enter setup and change date and time.
Save and try.
You may have a damaged HD or boot partition and reloading the operating system will be necessary.

Reseating the HD will assure that you have a good connection and the same with the memory.

Also, if the unit has been dropped, you may have a damaged HD and may need to change it.

Flash the bios


DO NOT FLASH THE BIOS PROGRAM

Not trying to be rude, making a statement

Tell me about this laptop.

What is the model name, and model number?
Example, Acer Aspire 5552
Model number is on the bottom of the laptop.

Just black screen one day?
Had problems leading up to it?

Post back in a Comment.
Regards,
joecoolvette

[1) When flashing the BIOS, and power goes off?
You're DONE, unless when asked you saved a copy of the original BIOS; to go back to.

2) Wrong BIOS update? (Flash the BIOS)
BIOS update too new, or not compatible?
You're DONE unless you saved a copy of the original BIOS.

Too easy to turn that laptop into an expensive paperweight.

It is a fact that about two weeks after a laptop, or desktop computer hits the market; that there is an updated BIOS program for it.

But read the above again ]

My acer AL2416w monitor turns on to a black screen


I have 2 Acer AL2416W monitors that i have been using for 2 years. There has been a handful of times i would turn my computer on in the morning and the screen would be black and Acer would lightly flash on the monitor 1 time. Typically a restart would take care of the problem. Last week the monitor blacked out and i can't get it to work. Any suggestions?? I switched ports on the computer to verify it wasn't the video card and tried new DVI cables to verify it wasn't those? Is this fixable??

hi

in both the computers unplug the power cord and any external device attached to the system.

Press the power while the power cord if unplugged for 1 min exact, plug the power cord and see if this works. As there is extra power on the mother board which needs to be drained out
