Acer aspire one model zg5 battery won't charge

\015 So, I've read a few posts about how flashing the latest bios would solve this problem. The problem is now to find the correct bios. My theory is that the zg5 uses the same bios as the A150 model. I came to this conclusion since acer support does not offer drivers or bios for the zg5. My support question is then, is this a correct assumption?\015\012\015\012And also I have never flashed bios before. How is that done? Thanks in advance!\015

Answers :

I have exactly the same problem and am searching at the same time as you. I think you are wrong. I think the 150 is for the larger screen model. I think we need the 110.

I think it's this one that i found at acer-euro


but I'm afraid to use it (which is not to say I know how). Somthing about putting it onto a USB drive and running scripts. At least that's what they do with this problem on a 150
I just finished flashing the new bios, It totally fixed the battery charging issue. But just make sure the first time you start the computer right after flashing the bios, take out the battery before you start computer.

because when I stated it right after flash, the computer shouts off right after I see my desktop... so after a few try I decided to start with out the battery, only with AC power. it didn't shout off anymore, then plug in the battery, it starts to charge. every thing is fine after that.
