Check your CD for the Aspire it may contain the orignal bios .bin file and flash program. Nothing on Acer's site will load for me other than the two main pages. But I did find another web site if your willing to try it. http://driverscollection.com/?file_id=38429

Hi i need a expert to resolve my laptop Acer Aspire 1640z . I was upgrading my bios from 3a19 to 3A24 and now... after powering on, i hear 1 long beep and 2 short beeps and my screen is black. Nothing...


According to my troubleshooting manual of Acer Aspire 4520-Z3 about

BIOS Flash Utility:

The BIOS flash memory update is required for the following conditions:
New versions of system programs
New features or options
Restore a BIOS when it becomes corrupted.

Use the Phlash utility to update the system BIOS flash ROM.
NOTE:
If you do not have a crisis recovery diskette at hand, then you should
create a Crisis Recovery Diskette before you use the Phlash utility.
Do not install memory-related drivers (XMS, EMS, DPMI) when you use the Phlash.
Please use the AC adaptor power supply when you run the Phlash utility.
If the battery pack does not contain enough power to finish BIOS flash,
you may not boot the system because the BIOS is not completely loaded.

Follow the steps below to run the Phlash.
1. Prepare a bootable diskette.
2. Copy the flash utilities to the bootable diskette.
3. Then boot the system from the bootable diskette.

The flash utility has auto-execution function.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You need to prepare a bootable Flashdisk into dos mode
then you should search for the above mentioned crisis recovery
diskett and transfer its content to the flashdisk.

I read from another forum that for recovery of Aspire 4520 problem
can be done through pressing of the keys combination as follows:
press FN + ESC and hold them, then just hit the power on button
and release it, after awhile "the power button" should blink red,
release the keys FN+ESC and don't touch anything.

After successful of recover the bios it should restart normally.
That happen after 20-30 minutes. If it doesn't restart just repeat the
process.

Hope it helps

Tryed installing new bios upgrade,screen flickerd on reboot now is doa on reboot,model 1640z/xp home edition ?? what do I do !!


Hi,

It should be ok, as this can happen quite often.

Remove the AC adapter from the laptop, then the battery.

Press and hold the on/off button for 30 seconds, then reinsert the battery (not AC) and hit the on/off button.
The laptop should now start up and you can plug in AC power.

If it still won't turn on after this then chances are you flashed it with the wrong BIOS update.


Good luck.

I was trying to go through recovery thinking I could get more speed on laptop and I messed comp. up. Only get a blank black screen. tried powering down, rebooting, still can't get on. Help!! i was trying...


Flashing the Bios is a LAST DITCH effort to resolve Hardware issues. You should NEVER flash the bios unless you are absolutely certain it's the correct bios for your computer, also NEVER flash bios from within windows..

There may however be a solution for you, Acer laptop computers with the Pheonix BIOS sometimes has a " flashback" feature, allowing you to revert to your original Bios..

You will need to contact Acer to get a Crisis Bios recovery disk from them. Or ask for further information on how exactly to recover from a bad bios flash.

Bios reset on a acer aspire 1640z


To reset the bios in a laptop you need to unplug the power supply and remove the battery. Once you do that press and hold the power button for 45 seconds then put the battery back on and plug it in and then try starting it. Everything in the bios will be reset to the factory. 
Good Luck

Power comes on but the screen stay`s black dose it have a screen lock or stand by


Black screens can be caused by many things the first bit of video runs through the ram, so try changing the ram or swaping it. the next thing that causes a black screen is the LCD Inverter or the back light bulb to test this is take a flash light and shine it on the screen at an angle and see of you can make any faint images out. Next dis-assemble the laptop and see if the processor is heating up or staying cool.

Hope this helps!

Acer aspire 1640z bios update


That's a memory or RAM error. You need to re-seat the ram of your machine.

Bios Boot Block Recovery


unfortunately not unless, you have a dual bios where the old settings are saved, flashing the bios is very dodgy, unless it is absolutely neccasary. You may be better getting in touch with acer to se if the laptop can be reset.
