OMG ... I was completley distraught. I bought my ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP 6 months ago when I was trveling in italy ,im in austarlia. I use it to run my online game ; Â» http://www.themafiawarz.eu
- and has all my files.
When I got the black screen o death I first am here to the boards finding nothing I was further distraught..
I AM HAPPY TO TELL YOU MY FRIENDS, that I am typing this on my lil baby
Heres what you do....
* you need usb disk drive
* a second computer with internet access (can be work cafe friends place)
* a file you can download from acer or search yourself called ZGIA32.zip
Format your drive in fat (*note I tried fat as directed in a number of manuals though then tried fat32 and it worked then though suggest you try fat first *shrug)
open zip file and copy 3309.fd and the fla.exe to the usb stick
rename 3309.fd to ZGIA32.fd
Turn off your laptop making sure that both battery and power supply is plugged in and attach the usb stik/drive.
hold down FN and ESC keys and press the power button, continue to fold FN and ESC keys for 7-10 secs then release - at this point the power light should be blinking and you should still have the black screen of death.
press the power button once while its blinking - this will initiate a bios update * DO NOT PUSH ANYTHING AFTER THIS
After 2 mins the aspire should reboot itself , wait for about 7mins if it dosent before rebooting manually
Took me three attempts as I just wasent doing something right though TA DA!!!!!
and I still have my files. yeah team take this and run, hope you havent spent money yet
