    I must ask too, WHY flash your BIOS? What on Earth could have driven you to a BIOS upgrade as a solution?

When the machine boots press F2. Go to the bios settings and in the harddisk section select IDE support. This will boot the system.

I have forgotten password for aspire 5920 and back up disc not working


Hello Carol Venables. Please watch this video which it shows how to disable the BIOS password. If your computer has been encrypted with a system key (syskey) then this procedure will not work.

Accer aspire 5920 laptop no power


try to remove cables and battery , then press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Reinsert the cables and battery back, then turn it on. If no power, then that propels you to contact Acer for repair because power supply won't work on your laptop..

Hello....y dont have the passord of bios....my nothebook ys acer aspire 5920


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Good Morning: I have an Acer Aspire 5920


Hello,

As by your description, the FN F7 key combo did not solve the problem. Please restart the machine , press F8 then select from the list "Safe mode" then press enter. Then see how the Touch pad reacts in Safe mode. If it works perfectly in safe mode, we can assume you have a software problem that is preventing it from working in normal windows mode.

Please download and install the latest BIOS for your machine. The E525 has a issue where the TP just stops working, upgrading the BIOS solves the issue on the E525...

Bios password


Hello akas166,

The dewassoc.com web site has information about resetting a bios password. I hope this helps you resolve the problem of being locked out of the system:

Screen flickers even on battery


Hello,

Have you updated your system BIOS with the latest download from Aspire?

This upgrade is particularly important if you have updated your Vista with service pack one or two (which may have been done automatically depending on your Windows update setting).

To upgrade your system BIOS download the latest version from the link below-
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5920.html

simply run the file that is provided in the zipped form in order to update your system bios which should resolve this issue unless it is hardware related which is usually not the case on this laptop.
