    Hi all

    I have an Acer Aspire which was refusing to boot and it was recommended to update the bios to me as it sounded like the bios was not seeing the hard drive. I followed the instruction as set out by Acer here >> http://macles.blogspot.com/2008/08/acer ... overy.html regarding bios recovery. All seemed to go ok but it did not restart. After 5 minutes I powered it down to retry the process but now it just stays at a black screen. It will let me access recovery mode where the power light is flashing but it will not upgrade the bios when I press the power button again.

    You may have to try several times to get it to take. I had to try 4 or 5 different times with 3 different sticks before it would finally take. Just be sure to wait about 10 minutes before trying again each time.
