If you go to the acer site there are utilities to update the bios

Make sure 11% that you flash the correct bios as the wrong one will render it useless. Also make sure that you are plugged into the mains when doing it and pray that there isnt a power cut during the flash :)

Acer 9300 bios upgrade failed

I have the same problem, and my problem was that I have installed 4GB ram and that ram modules wasn't accepted with the new bios. So I installed the old modules and it all worked again, downgraded the bios to one version older and installed my 4GB ram modules and it all worked.

Hope that's your problem too.
Good luck

Can't format 5610Z

If you can enter the bios, change the boot order in the bios, so that the CD drive boots before the hard drive.

OK! I have read about many people with this problem and I have had the same problem so maybe i can shed some light on it, here goes!...... I turns out that the intel chipset on this laptop will only handle 2gb of memory, not 4gb as Acer say in the manual. But, is this true i wonder! because I have tried 2 2gb sticks in my laptop and sure enough it wont work. However, I have now put in one 2gb module and one of the original 512mb modules and it works fine but vista said it only had 2gb and the bios sais 2.5gb! very strange but then I updated vista with service pack1 and now vista does see the full 2.5gb memory. So acer are still wrong which leads me to think that maybe this could be solved with bios updates in the near future (I am on bios 3.50)

No you can't, because it's on motherboard, not separate card.

Boot with over 2GB of ram

Make sure you got the right speed -

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-4200 or DDR2 PC2-5300.

If you got faster than 5300 they may not clock down properly.

If the memory is the correct specs then it may simply not be compatible and you will have to try different RAM.

I have the best luck on laptops with Crucial ram - they have certified ram for many systems. here is a link for yours:
