Re: flash bios crash
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>

The complete solution to this fault (Acer 5535 keeps crashing under vista) is to use Windows XP instead of Vista. Set up a Dual Boot so you can CHOOSE to load XP or Vista each time you turn on the laptop. I've put XP on my 5535 and it's SO much faster and seems perfectly stable now - no crashing at all.
A full video showing how to do this is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdfU9TXIAd4
Once you've done this you won't have any problems with the laptop anymore. This is a perfect solution to the crashing problem!
It sound's like there could be a compatibility problem, maybe corrupt file's, or missing start up file's, have you tried doing a window's update, or doing a disc check on the hard drive, go to my computer right click the drive then go to propertie's, click on tool's then click check now for drive error's. if that do'es not work you may need to reformat back to the original xp os.
ASUS will probably not honor the warranty in this situation. And even though the computer worked for a short time after the mods there is a legit possibility that the mods did cause the computer to eventually fail (and during a BIOS Update.) Sorry man. It looks like you bricked your system from that last BIOS update. Your only chance is to remove the EEPROM from the motherboard and replace it with one that has the correct firmware flashed.
