Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Tried to update bios with flash bios v3.10 on aspire 5100 with xp pro (media center). Computer crashed during process, now is dead. Now what to do?
The only 2 way to fix it is to replace the motherboard or:
Take the computer apart by removing all visible screws. And slowly and carefully removing all parts. Start with screws under keyboard on bottom of chassis. After you remove the keyboard you will see more of a hint to get the laptop apart. Go to tomshardware.com and search the site for how-to on disassembling a laptop. After you get it open you should look for your bios chip , the picture is attached here. If it is socketed you can get the numbers
and do an
internet search or call acer and get one from the manufacturer.
Here is one for a toshiba laptop: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba_Tecra_S2/pull_apart_laptop_1.htm</url>
