    Hi Guys,

    Just bought an acer aspire one off a mate an got it cheap coz he mashed the screen up, so changed the screen and found it wasnt charging so updated the bios and thought might as well change the os,

    Now after all the updates the machine boots goes into windows and then just dies, regardless of wether its on mains or not, tried ringing acer but they said they dont even have my machine on file and wait four days...what crap is that

    If you can give me any help that would be great

    Original bios was 3005 updated to 3010, to resolve battery charging issue

    Check that the cooling fan is operating.

    I can hear a fan whirring when it boots up, also when i did the flash i did it while the os was running not the while it was in bios mode

    That make a diff?

    Windows 7 absolutely hated the battery in my D250:

    Temporary solution:- disable the battery in Device Manager and operate as if it was a desktop (works on battery still, just keep an eye on your charge indicator light)

    Final Solution:- BIOS update fixed it.
