Solution 1: Boot-block BIOS
Modern motherboards have a boot-block BIOS. This is small area of the BIOS that doesn't get overwritten when you flash a BIOS. The boot-block BIOS only has support for the floppy drive.If you have a PCI video card,you won't see anything on the screen because the boot-block BIOs only supports an ISA videocard.
Award: The boot-block BIOS will execute an AUTOEXEC.BAT file on a bootable diskette. Copy an Award flasher & the correct BIOS *.bin file on the floppy and execute it automaticly by putting awdflash *.bin in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
AMI: The AMI boot-block BIOS will look for a AMIBOOT.ROM file on a diskette. Copy and rename the correct BIOS file on the floppy and power up the PC. The floppy doesn't need to be bootable. You will see the PC read the floppy, after about 4 minutes you will hear 4 beeps, this means the transfer is done. Reboot the PC and modify the CMOS for your configuration.
Solution 2: Get a new BIOS chip

  1. Contact your motherboard manufacturer to see if they sell BIOS chips. Some motherboard manufactures send them for free.
  2. Contact a company that sells pre-flashed chips, like Unicore Software, FlashBIOS.ORG, BadFlash or Bios World
Solution 3: Hot-swapping
Note: I'm not responsible for any damage this method may do to you or your computer !
  1. Replace the corrupt chip by a working one. The best option is to take the working BIOS chip from a motherboard which has the same chipset although that's not absolutely necessary. It just has to give you a chance of booting into DOS. Before pulling the working BIOS chip out of it's original motherboard, set the System BIOS cacheable option in the BIOS to enabled.
  2. After you have put the working BIOS in the motherboard with the corrupt BIOS boot the system to DOS (with a floppy or HD).
  3. Now replace (while the computer is powered on) the working BIOS chip with the corrupt one.
  4. Flash an appropriate BIOS to the corrupt BIOS and reboot.

Solution 4: (for Intel motherboards)
  1. Change Flash Recovery jumper to the recovery mode position (not all products have this feature)
  2. Install the bootable upgrade diskette into drive A:
  3. Reboot the system
  4. Because of the small amount of code available in the non-erasable boot block area, no video is available to direct the procedure. The procedure can be monitored by listening to the speaker and looking at the floppy drive LED. When the system beeps and the floppy drive LED is lit, the system is copying the recovery code into the FLASH device. As soon as the drive LED goes off, the recovery is complete.
  5. Turn the system off
  6. Change the Flash Recovery jumper back to the default position
  7. Leave the upgrade floppy in drive A: and turn the system on
  8. Continue with the original upgrade

Set the bios password and forgotten whaat it is

You need to preform a Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery

instructions here:

You need a flash drive formatted as fat (Right click on drive. Click format. Select fat for file system. Press start)
Down load the bios 3310 from here:
Extract all files. Put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file with FD suffix in the root directory of the flash drive. The files must not be in a folder. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD before proceeding. It only works with this exact filename.

Make sure laptop is off and has battery and power plugged in.

Plug in flash drive to netbook. Press Fn and Esc simultaneously, keep them pressed and press the power button. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds. The power button starts blinking at this point. Press it once. The netbook will now access the files on the flash drive and initiate flashing the BIOS. After a while the power button stops blinking, and the netbook reboots by itself. Wait patiently.

If it doesn't reboot, but keeps blinking, wait at least a few minutes before turning it off, and try again.

It is not charging

I recently had an Acer Aspire One that (after fully discharging) would no longer hold a charge. It worked fine when plugged in, but would turn off right after discharging. This is due to a BIOS error, and this article will show you how to update the BIOS to the official Acer revision 3309.

This article is meant for the AOA110 and AOA150 models ONLY, ingluding the ZG series of AOA110 and AOA150 netbooks.

1. On a separate computer, click here:

2. Click Netbook -> Acer Aspire One -> AOA150 -> and then below, choose the "BIOS" tab.

3. Click the orange "Down" arrow to download the BIOS.

4. Open the .zip file and extract the two files: "3310.fd" and "Flashit.exe" onto your thumb drive. Rename "3310.fd" to "zg5ia32.fd"

5.Insert the thumb drive into your powered off Netbook.

6.Press and hold down the "Fn" and "Esc" keys and turn on the Netbook while still holding these keys for about 30 seconds, then let go.

7. Your Netbook should stay black for anywhere from 2-4 minutes or so. Once it restarts, safely remove your thumb drive, and charge it for a while. It should successfully hold a charge from now on.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

When i turn on the netbook it acts like its going to boot but then goes to a blank screen. can not get past the blank screen

Try pressing F2 several times as the netbook powers up. If it does not enter its Setup Utility, then its BIOS has failed. The Acer Aspire One netbooks with early BIOS versions were prone to BIOS failure. Fortunately, the procedure to do an Aspire One BIOS Recovery were posted over two years ago and can be found now in the macles archive. At your own risk, carefully follow the steps given at...

If you are successful, keep the USB stick/thumb-drive with the recovery files and instructions for handling a possible future failure. What circumstances led the BIOS to fail in the first place is unclear but from personal experience after flashing the BIOS on my netbook to a later version in mid-2009, there has been no more BIOS failures. Before doing that, my netbook's BIOS failed twice in about 4 months.

My acer aspire one do not start . Only turn on power button led and battery charging led . Dont turn on the screen .. help , please ... Thanks

The Acer Aspire One Netbook with early BIOS versions had problems with BIOS failures which turned the system essentially into a "brick". A solution posted over two years ago on macles provides steps for doing a BIOS recovery which restores the netbook back to normal. At your own risk, carefully follow the steps that are documented on the macles archive by clicking on the following link.

Be aware that the recovery procedure is just that and the "brick" problem can re-occur so if you are successful, keep the USB thumb drive and steps to do the recovery procedure handy for future use. It is possible to flash the BIOS with later versions which do not seem to have this problem. But that would be another fixya problem solution.

I have a big problem with my acer aspire one 8.9'',the screen appear blue and i can;t push any button,please help me ,what should i do?

The Acer Aspire One Netbook with the 8.9" screen had early versions of its BIOS that were prone to BIOS failure which turned it into a "brick". This is probably your netbook's problem. Fortunately, a solution has been posted for over two years and is now on the macles web site archive. At your own risk, carefully follow the steps for Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery by clicking on the following link....

If you are successful, this solution only provides recovery of the BIOS and does not necessarily prevent the problem from re-occuring. So suggest that the USB stick or thumb-drive be retained with the recovery instructions for possible use if the "brick" problem happens again in the future.

Brand new acer aspire won't load windows xp

If you can still get into the BIOS, see if you have an option for D2D recovery. if so, make sure it is enabled.

restart the system and hold down Alt+f10. if your recovery partition is still intact, this should start a factory reload of your system.

I bought an netbbok acer one, i cant turn it on

If you can't turn it on you need to update the bios. There is a problem with the original Bios it shipped with. You need to be more detailed with your problem as well. Seeing as I own this netbook x2 I can see what your problem is.
