    The board of the Acer 5920 doesn't have a bios battery nor a jumper to the bios. It's all integrated on the board, that's why i don't know how to reset it, but thanks anyway .....

To enter the BIOS menu on any computer (as far as my 14 years of knowledge) press the "del" or delete key repeatedly and you should get in the BIOS, on one of the tabs or menus, you should be able to reset BIOS settings to factory default.

You can reset the bios setting by removing the battery, you can also remove the jumper pin from the motherboard from pin1-2 to pin3-4 wait for 10sec then return to pin1-2

Is flashing the BIOS the same as resetting the BIOS? I to am going to upgrade to a 5400+ AMD CPU. mobo: MCP61-AM-6A61KE11C-00 BIOS version Ro1-B3. I'm having a hard time finding a flash for this version....


Hi, flashing the board and resetting it is not the same. flashing the board is downloading the firmware and installing in on the motherboard but resetting the bios is just moving a jumper found on the board to reset it to default state. try to get on the manufacturer website to get the flash files. Be careful flashing a motherboard may be very risky and harmful for the motherboard.hope that it helped and don't forget to rate.

Best regards

I have a acer laptop 5738z i have a problem that sometime my laptop start and freeze on blinking of underscore in very beginning to start the laptop plz help me out its urgent


I need a bit more info.
Is this a Linux or Windows machine and what version?
Have you recently updated the computer BIOS or system drivers? I recommend the latest manufacturer BIOS patch on acer.com.
New to this? Have a tech friend 'flash' the BIOS or go to a shop. Download all the BIOS stuff for them, save them some work and it should be inexpensive.
Have you recently changed Windows in any way?
Has the computer been dropped?
Did you install XP on a Linux computer? This has known issues.

Acer Aspire 5920-6864 wont turn on at all


Good questions.

You might want to try another power adapter first before replacing the board though.

If you do decide to replace the board I always use the same exact part number to avoid having to re-install windows, etc. You can do some research though to see if a higher revision will work. That info usually isn't available on the net though :(

If the board is available on the cheap then I'd say go ahead and fix this laptop otherwise lots of them are going for 200-300 this Black Friday ;)

The exact same thing happened when I did a bios update on my acer


sorry to say this but you have to replace your PC's motherboard. flashing the bios is one big mistake that i learned from. also i think that's not covered by the warranty.
