Hi deartone, you can try these steps:

You can power drain the pc if the bios won't update.. Turn off the pc
then unplug cables from the desktop or laptop then remove the battery (only on laptop) , then press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.

Then replug all cables and batteries. Then turn on the pc and check the Bios if it updates.

You can call our technical support if it isn't work at 1-877-4-536686.

Bios update mc7801u...from 9911 to 9930 wont update using phlash tells me error 144...do just says cannot update the bios


If your laptop thinks it is running off of battery power, phlash will crop up with an error such as yours. Make sure you are running on AC power, and remove the battery before running phlash.

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

Lenovo memory problem


crucial wasn't the problem.
the problem was solved by me doing a bios update.
they shipped the unit with the pci configured for 1 gig.
not 1.5,2,3 or 4.
I had to go for broke and pray that the 63af08 update had something in it,they said nothing about a memory upgrade period!
Here are 2 links for the solution. WHEW!
