Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem


\015\012It seems that a lot of people had success reflashing the BIOS from a USB drive using tools provided by Acer. I don’t know if it’s officially supported by Acer or if it will void your warranty, but if the computer’s a paperweight now anyway, what the hell?

It’s very easy to do, but the steps are a bit unclear so here’s my attempt to make the whole thing painless. This worked for me, but it might not for you, so do this at your own risk.
\015\012You need:
\015\012\015\012Download all the files to an easy to find location.
\015\012Steps to prepare the USB drive:
\015\012
    \015\012
  • Format the USB drive using the FAT file system, not FAT32.
  • \015\012
  • Start UNetbootin and choose FreeDOS as the distribution. Screenshot here.
  • \015\012
  • Unzip the BIOS files and copy them to the USB drive
  • \015\012
  • Make a copy of the BIOS file and rename it as ZG5IA32.FD (this appears to be very important – my reflash failed until I did the copy & rename)
\015\012Reflash the BIOS:
\015\012
    \015\012
  • Make sure the AAO is turned off, the battery is attached and the power adaptor is plugged in.
  • \015\012
  • Insert the USB drive
  • \015\012
  • Press and hold FN + ESC and press the power button to turn it on. Release the Fn & ESC keys. The LED in the power button will flash.
  • \015\012
  • Press the power button again once and wait. Mine took ~3 minutes, but I’d advise that you let it sit there for at least 5 minutes just in case your’s takes longer.
\015\012When the reflashing is done, the AAO will reboot and, hopefully, you’ll be back to normal.
\015\012If it doesn’t work, try reflashing again. The keypress sequence is a little tricky.
\015\012If the second try doesn’t work, then you’ll probably have to send it off for repair.
\015\012Good luck!!!
