Marian Koniuszko: I have the same problem with acer aspire 5742g - black screen after power
off, the difference is that there is a signal on hdmi ( i can manage all
win7 function). I check LCD tape (from MOBO to LCD) and LCD - nothing on it
after light with external source. What do you think about it ?

Ranbir Kaur: This actually worked for me. I bought a non-starting Acer laptop from ebay
and was going to use it for spare-parts, but it looked so nice and clean
that I felt tempted to try to revive it. and WOW! it did work.
I followed your Video (and also the one explaining how to make bootable
flashdrives), but at first nothing happened.
When I restarted the notebook once, then the Bios screen came up and the
Notebook started nomally.
I had a look at the BIOS and it said version 1.01, so I flashed the newest
BIOS from the archive just downloaded. From that point on the Notebook

Nuevo: Its works for me! :) I am sorry I dont speak english so good. Tengo una
Acer Aspire 4551 (bueno es de mi hija). Esto fue lo que hice: baje el
último Bios para el modelo, de la página oficial de Acer, En un pen drive
formateado (ojo: no era de arranque solo formateado) coloqué TODO el BIOS
que bajé (no solo la parte de DOS, sino todo, sin cambiar ningún nombre),
Al hacer el procedimiento de encendido por equivocación presioné CTRL+ ESC
(no FUN+ESC), y luego, manteniendolos presionados, presioné el botón de
power, y empezó el arranque, ahora lo que siguió no fue igual al video,
empezó a aparecer una serie de preguntas en ingles con segundos para
responder, que no pude leer bien y pasaban muy rápido, no respondí ninguna
lo dejé seguir, Si podía leer que podía parar con ESC en cualquier momento.
Duro poco tiempo y al terminar arrancó WIN 8 en forma normal, apagué y
encendí de nuevo la laptop y todo bien. Espero que esta sea la solución
definitiva, tengo muchos meses con el problema. Había visto esta solución
pero no me atrevía a usarla, primero por lo delicado del BIOS y segundo por
que no soy técnico. Así que preferí llevar la laptop con técnicos
especializados, Ellos le pasaron un scanner especial a la laptop y
diagnosticaron que era calentamiento y suciedad, pero por dos veces más y
mucho tiempo la laptop volvió a ellos por el mismo problema, Le hicieron
limpieza, le revisaron las soldaduras, le cambiaron una memoria y por
último le cambiaron la pieza del ventilador, ah y por petición mía le
instalaron win 8 (tenía win 7) y yo le coloqué más memoria por ello. Yo le
había comentado a uno de los técnicos del BIOS pero no le dio importancia.
Y por aproximadamente un mes la laptop trabajó bien, y de repente otra vez
pantalla negra, ya había gastado mucho dinero con estos técnicos, MUCHO mas
de lo que la laptop costo originalmente, así que pensé en llevarla a otro
técnico, hablé con él y me dijo que tendría que desarmar y revisarla, y yo
pensé otra vez? Le comente también lo del BIOS y me dijo que era delicado
meterse con el. Así que me decidí a hacer el proceso yo misma, volví a
revisar en internet, lo hice y funciono! Me pregunto si todo el gasto
anterior fue necesario. Quiero pensar que al menos se le hizo limpieza y
mantenimiento. Quise compartir mi experiencia porque así como a mí me
ayudaron los comentarios de otros, a otros le puede servir el mio. Suerte
para todos :)

Here's what happened. When I power on the laptop, the boot screen shows up
and shows the line press to enter the setup, with the progress bar
below, moves up to 75%. When I press F2 or F12, is says waiting.... But the
progress bar doesn't go 100%. I tried waiting up to about 30 minutes but
there's no luck, the system won't let mo go to setup bios or boot menu. I
tried removing the hard disk ang booting it but the same problem occurs.
I saw your video but the bios i downloaded is different from yours in the
video. i didnt know which to rename with what. i tried without renaming.
but i can't make it work.
Can you suggest me anything I can do?
I don't know if my laptop is UEFI based but from the startup screen I can
see that my BIOS is from Phoenix technology.
By the way here is my system specs:
Intel HD graphics3000
2 GB DDR3 memory

I have a specific question.
I am fixing this problem on my Acer Aspire 5552G and the BIOS DOS folder

Should I rename that one too before proceeding to flashing the bios?

Tamás Speck: Hy Harry. I have got a Acer Aspire 5538. BLack screeen no beeping. It does
turn on but that's all. I tried a 16Gb Inteso pendrive to format fat32
bootable and I put thore files and I renamed the nescesarry fd as well. The
problem is When I hold the fn esc and I powered up it does nothing. Nothing
flashing ect. Just only the pure black scree. Ram test was donre ect oh and
external screen also not working? What do you think?
Adam Gg: Hi, i have the same problem with my acer 5551g. When i plug in the pendrive

rynobell: Harry, the ESC button on my Acer Aspire 5538 does not work. It stopped
working months ago. Is there any other way to try to flash? Ive tried
taking out the battery and charger, holding power for 60 seconds (3 times),
and this did not work...then I tried your non flashing option at the bottom
of the description to try the FN and ESC and Power, but as I said, my ESC
button doesn't work, but I tried it anyway. I do not have VGA cable, only
HDMI which is always connected to my TV and I work from the big screen.
Julio Gonzalez: Thank you!
tazvik ziauddin: dear harry nawaz,
sir, the trick you showed worked for me but I need to apply this flashing
trick whenever I try to turn on my laptop otherwise my acer aspire 5252
laptop won't turn on. If you have any solution to this, please reply back.
I will be waiting for your solution. Please.
sylvester palitog: Helow Harry, I have an Acer Aspire 4740g which has the same problem as
this. The power led lights on , with the fan running but no display, it
does not also have a POST or it does not beep when I took out the ram, hdd
and Video Card. I tried your tutorial but when the screen appears, the
laptop produces a loud short beeps continuously (Im not sure if the
motherboard or the HDD beeping). Also there is a black vertical lines at
the right side. The bios will appear and it allows me to select safe mode,
safe mode with networking etc. And then is shuts down after selecting one.
Do you have an idea about this? Thanks in advance.
