Bios fail after update
The bios update fail and now my computer stay off after push the power button.
What do i do? Thanks
Aspire 5315 Series features Intel Celeron mobile processor and Mobile Intel GL960 Express Chipset
kris, try to recover the BIOS with a USB drive. Follow this:"
FORMAT A USB THUMB DRIVE use FAT, or FAT16 as the file structure when you format it!
use a small capacity thumbdrive if possible,, large thumb drives may require FAT32 to format properly(and no floppy ever required FAT32 so that might cause the recovery to fail)
then put this file ON THE BLANK THUMB DRIVE
ICL50HW.fd (important FILE from the actual CRYSIS FLOPPY DISK IMAGE)
download and copy it to the formatted thumb DRIVE
go to the 5315,
(1.) REMOVE CD or DVD if possible (you may have to press the power button the quickly press the CD EJECT button)
(2.) REMOVE ALL USB DEVICES, NETWORK CABLES, (anything hooked to the laptop)
(3.) PRESS AND HOLD the POWER BUTTON DOWN FOR 5 secs to shutdown the laptop
(4.) REMOVE BATTERY
(5.) REMOVE AC CORD
(6.) PUT the USB THUMB DRIVE IN USB SLOT ON RIGHT SIDE OF LAPTOP (the one i used anyway)
(7.) PRESS AND HOLD the POWER BUTTON down for 10 secs... release
(8.) while holding FN + ESC plug in AC POWER CABLE, (KEEP HOLDING FN+ESC the whole time)
(9.) NOW PRESS POWER BUTTON & HOLD IT DOWN... THE FAN SHOULD SPIN UP (keep holding FN+ESC) ONCE FAN SPINS UP, RELEASE POWER BUTTON
(10.) eventually the fan will shut off.... (seemed like 30 seconds, but could have been 5 minutes.)
when fan shuts off i unplugged my AC CORD... REMOVED THE USB DRIVE, and then plugged the AC power back in,
then pressed power and my the miracle of technology and my perseverance... i got a green power light followed by an ACER POST SCREEN!!!
(BIOS VERSION IS GOING TO BE OLD AND TIME IS WAY OFF)... but atl east it should boot..
time to winflash back to 1.43
BTW when using WINFLASH exit all programs, kill all tasks in taskbar. (i never do, but it's a good habit to be in). Instructions from here. Hope this helps, good luck.
Please download the BIOS update from the manufacturer supplier computer very importan.When you have the BIOS update so do the follow:
a) open the computer and disconnect the small battery for 3V, by 1 minute.
b) then connect again.
c) and discharge the BIOS update and follow the step,
and try it, must fix it.
God bless you
