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 but later I was all smiles
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
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
This worked for me and only cost me £5, Here is the web sit i got it from
Hope it works for you

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.
