Question about Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Acer Aspire 5520 laptop and i updated the bios using a flash utility off the manufacturers web site and when it booted back up it would lock up my mouse and keyboard for like 10 min. at a time. So i went to reinstall the bios driver update and it errored in the middle of the flash. Now the pc comes on i see system lights and here system noises for like two seconds then it shuts back off all the way lights drives and fans for like two secs then it does the same thing over and over again. I know its just the bios software or at leaste i hope its not hardware related but i have no idea of how to flash the bios when the pc wont do anything. please help.

Short of removing the bios chip and replacing it with an exact replacement off of another mobo or using an EEPROM to reprogram it... nothing except replace the motherboard.

I have an Acer Aspire 3004lci. Can I safely update the BIOS with the Acer 3000 bios driver 3A32?

Listen honestly unless the bios update directly effects your operation of the pc NEVER flash your bios. Every manufactor out there places a big warning on the flash utility "we will not be responcible for damages using this software" There is good reason 4 that u are running a 50/50 chance your pc will never boot up again afterwards. If ur PC is running fine and doing what it should be do like the old saying says "if its not broken dont try and fix it"

I lock my bios and forgot my bios password

That can be tough with laptops. You can try this program: !BIOS PC BIOS.

The (sometimes hard) definite solution is to pull the clock battery (it's a watch battery, often mounted on the motherboard of the system).

A perhaps easier solution would be to flash the BIOS with an update from the manufacturer.

Good luck!

Corrupted checksum

on a different computer, you can download a "bios flash update" from the computer manufacturer's website. it may want to burn a cd with the flash utility and binary file to flash the bios with. boot from the cd or diskette, and then you should be able to boot the computer after that.

ps - it won't format your hard drive or erase your files.
